Android Central Podcast
The Android podcast for everyone. A weekly show about Android, Google, and the best of mobile technology. Hosted by Daniel Bader.

This week, Andrew, Jerry and Daniel recall the year that was. From Android on Chrome to Note 7s on fire, 2016 was a pretty good — and interesting — year in the mobile space.

Thanks for joining us for another journey around the sun! See you in 2017.

In this episode, Daniel, Jerry, Andrew and Alex debate whether wearables, and smartwatches in particular, are done for — or whether there's still a pulse... nope, not going to finish that one.

Meanwhile, RCS — Rich Communications Services — could be the iMessage alternative Android users have been waiting for, but it's probably going to disappoint.

Plus, favorite apps! The team goes over their best apps of the year.

This week, Daniel, Jerry and Alex are joined by special guest Russell Holly to talk about Daydream and emerging trends in mobile VR!

This week, Jerry returns to the AC Podcast rotation, along with Daniel, Andrew, and Alex, who jump right into Q&A — questions asked by you, the listener!

But that's not all: they talk about the Google Pixel's latest updates, and the excellent sales that have been reported. And the OnePlus 3T, Gear S3 and Google Tango are all now available, but do they live up to expectations?

This week, Andrew, Daniel and Alex get the buying season started early with their favorite gear gifts at any price point.

Plus, the OnePlus 3T is now official, but why does it exist, and what does that mean for the popular and still-great OnePlus 3? And the Galaxy S7 is getting a beta version of Nougat in some countries, but when will it roll out to the rest of us?

Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 835 alongside Quick Charge 4.0, too, and there's a lot of excitement around the new 10nm manufacturing process.

Finally, Samsung is selling the Galaxy Note 3 refurbished this Black Friday, but the team thinks this is a very bad idea.

In this episode, Alex, Andrew, Jerry and Daniel talk about the post-Pixel releases of the year: Google Home, Chromecast Ultra, Daydream, and the new (and improved) Android Auto! There's so much to like, but many of the feature feel like half-measures. 

Also, Nougat is on the verge of getting released broadly, other than the Pixel and a couple recent phones you won't find it beyond beta.

Finally, the Mate 9 is coming soon, but did Huawei do enough to make EMUI usable? Oh, and the HTC Bolt — a Sprint exclusive, but also a good indication of HTC's carrier-focused future.

Category:general -- posted at: 10:51am EDT

This week, Alex, Daniel and special guest, MrMobile himself Michael Fisher, talk about Huawei's massive-in-a-few-ways new flagship, the Mate 9. 

How much will Huawei benefit from the Note 7's absence in the market, and will the Mate 9 come to the U.S.? (A lot, and probably!) 

Settle in, this is one you don't want to miss!

This week, Jerry, Daniel and Andrew dive deeper into the Pixel and Pixel XL, discussing the phones' best and worst features after two weeks of use. It's also good news on the earnings front as Google pulled its most profitable quarter ever while LG and Samsung get hit hard.

The Google Pixel is here, and Daniel, Andrew, and Alex dive deep on the Google Phone. From the resemblance to the iPhone (overstated), to the camera (totally amazing) to battery life (good on the Pixel, great on the Pixel XL), there's a lot to discuss, so join us!

Andrew, Alex, and Daniel dive headfirst into the fiery depths of the Note 7 cancellation.

How much did Samsung know before the phone was widely released, and why didn't the company catch what was causing the first batch of phones to overheat before sending replacements? And, ultimately, how will this affect the way people look at Samsung as a company, and its future products?

We're live from the Google Pixel launch event in San Francisco! Andrew, Russell and Flo are on hand to talk about their first impressions of Google's new Pixel phones, along with Daydream View, the Google's first VR headset, and Google Home, Wifi and the new Chromecast Ultra!

Lots to talk about this week, so dig in, it's a good one.

Direct download: androidcentral309.mp3
Category:technology -- posted at: 11:11am EDT

This week, Alex, Jerry, Daniel, and Flo talk about the Google event happening on October 4, and how Google's Pixel phones need something truly special to make a mark on the industry in ways the Nexuses never could.

And BlackBerry is no longer making its own phones. Is that a big deal when the company pledged years ago to be a software company first?

Finally, Android Wear 2.0 has been delayed. Boo! But its scope is much bigger than when it first debuted earlier this year, so when smartwatches finally are released with it, we'll actually have some pretty cool new stuff to look forward to.

Direct download: androidcentral308.mp3
Category:general -- posted at: 7:06pm EDT

In episode 307, Andrew, Jerry, and Daniel chat about Allo, Google's smart, AI-powered messaging app. After so much hype, does it live up to our lofty expectations, and how does Google capitalize on its ambitious bot strategy?

Plus, replacement Note 7s are here, and with it the "safe" green battery icon. But will it make a difference to Samsung's battered reputation?

And the new Xperia X Compact is one of the best small phones on the market, but what's with its $499 price? Come on, Sony.

Finally, Jerry walks us through the things to look for when buying a pair of Bluetooth headphones.

Direct download: androidcentral307.mp3
Category:general -- posted at: 3:27pm EDT

Andrew, Alex, Jerry and Flo (two appearances in a row!) talk about returning exploding Note 7s, how Samsung has handled another week of the ordeal and just who's at fault for the poor return rates up to this point.

With the expected upcoming Google event, we break down the latest Pixel phone leaks, and talk about the future of Android software with Nougat and beyond. Also, what the heck is going on with Android Wear right now? It kind of feels like it's in a holding pattern.

The group also talks about Sony's recent uptick in mind share since IFA, and how that relates to HTC's current dismal state of affairs.

Thanks to this week's sponsor, Harrys, for supporting the show!

This week, Daniel, Andrew, Jerry and Flo chat about — what else? — the Galaxy Note 7 recall. What Samsung and carriers have done well, and how they've let us down. Trust us, there's a bunch of both.

Plus, the LG V20 is a great big phone, but will it be a great big success for LG when the company really needs one?

And there was another "courageous" phone announcement this week. The team dives into things.

This week, Alex, Andrew, and Daniel convene in New York City to discuss Nougat. It's a full hour of all the new features in Android 7.0, and why you're going to want it — now.

(A quick warning: there is one curse word in the episode. Sorry, Jeff!)

Andrew, Alex, Daniel and Jerry (and Jerry's neighbor's tractor) give you a generous helping of the Honor 8, which is a pretty great inexpensive phone coming to the U.S. and Europe this month.

And we're coming up to the official release of Nougat, which means.... new Nexus phones! The team talks about potential features and designs of the two rumored HTC-built Nexuses.

Plus: is Google Duo a good thing, or a good waste? And Twitter Q&A!

Direct download: androidcentral302.mp3
Category:general -- posted at: 8:39am EDT

Why the heck is LG releasing the V20, and why does it appear to look like a larger, more boxy G5? Andrew, Russell and Daniel explore the potential reasons for LG's latest flagship, and whether its new design will appeal to anyone beyond the Android audience looking for speeds and feeds.

Plus: Russell got a Moto Z and likes it — a lot! And an IFA primer, including a discussion of the Gear S3 and Moto 360 3rd generation.

Plus, plus: Twitter Q&A!

Pokémon Go is everywhere. It brings together a part of our childhoods and smashes is right into The Future, thanks to our smartphones. There's a pretty good chance that you could step out onto any public street in America and find someone playing it. And the rest of the world is coming soon.

So we took a half-hour to catch up on what all the fuss is about. There's a LOT going on here. If you're trying to figure out what Pokémon Go is, or whether it's something you'll want to play, you don't want to miss this.
