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 takes a break from dirty diapers and sleepless nights to join Andrew Martonik and Jerry Hildenbrand for an in-depth look at the staggering number of devices Amazon unveiled at a recent event in Seattle. This is a serious shot across the bow of every smart home company. Amazon excels at automation — now they're looking to Echo all the things into just about every facet of life imaginable.

Russell Holly, Alex Dobie, and Jerry Hildenbrand are here with tons of information to share about the new Snapdragon Wear 3100 chip and Wear OS. Even with the battery improvements being promised by Qualcomm, the world is not without some watch envy when it comes to Apple Watch Series 4.

Apple may have had their moment in the spotlight this week, but there are still many Android devices yet to come in 2018. The team dig into what we know so far about the LG V40, OnePlus 6T, and the throughly spoiled Pixel 3.

All that, and Russell raves about June. It's a smart oven with sensors out the wazoo, machine learning, and OTA updates that add more cooking features. It's a high steaks episode!

Andrew Martonik, Russell Holly, and Jerry Hildenbrand talk about Google's Pixel 3 event, which is officially set for October 9th. We have good idea of what to expect from the phones, but will there be additional product announcements during the presentation?

They also dig into the Galaxy Watch review along with comparisons to Samsung Gear Sport.

Plus, special shoutout to new dad, Daniel Bader, as he begins a journey of diaper changing and sleepless nights. Congratulations, Daniel!

We're live from Berlin, Germany! Andrew Martonik, Alex Dobie, and Michael Fisher (aka Mr. Mobile) are here to bring you all best announcements from IFA 2018, including an all-new Wear OS interface with some very interesting smartwatches from Casio, Skagen Falster, and Diesel.

From there, it's a slew of new phones — BlackBerry KEY2 LE makes its debut at only $399, while the Sony Xperia XZ3 goes the opposite direction as a high-end device. And that's just the tip of the iceberg! To wrap things up, the gang talk about Lenovo's Yoga Chromebook. It's a whole lot of laptop for $599.
