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

Daniel Bader, Andrew Martonik, and Jerry Hildenbrand are not lawyers, but they play them on podcasts.

As the team gird their collective loins for Mobile World Congress, OnePlus remains in the crosshairs of Internet outrage. But is all the anger justified? Also, who should the responsibility and cost associated with security updates fall to? Carriers? Phone manufacturers? Should customers have to pay extra for guaranteed updates? So many questions!

The crew also discuss the redesign expected for Android P, Oreo updates for the Galaxy S8, Essential’s USB-C headphones, new emoji via Samsung Experience 9.0, and more. Listen up!

Daniel Bader, Andrew Martonik, Russell Holly, and Jerry Hildenbrand discuss trust issues with OnePlus when it comes to privacy and security, and why it isn’t necessary to place limits on voice activated services like Google Assistant and Alexa.

Despite some recent claims to the contrary, Andrew explains why 64GB of internal storage is sufficient for most users in 2018. The crew also talks about Google’s efforts to clean house in the Play Store, timeframes for the release of Android P, and slow updates to Oreo for Shield TV and Essential Phone. Join us!
