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 Alex Dobie begin the episode by looking at credit cards and gaming subscriptions through the lens of Apple Card and Apple Arcade. At face value, Apple Card seems to be 'best of the worst' and an interesting adjunct to mobile payments. And what could be learned from Apple Arcade when it comes to games and the Google Play Store?

They also look at instances where phone makers are 'mistakenly' sending user data to servers in China, and a recent report that cites significant security flaws in Huawei devices.

With Huawei remaining in the spotlight, the main event this week is discussion of the new P30 and P30 Pro. They offer unique camera experiences and tremendous overall value. Turns out, they're also phones!

Also, Russell punched a guy. By accident. Honest!

The reviews for the Galaxy S10 series phones are in, but Daniel Bader, Andrew Martonik, and Jerry Hildenbrand still have thoughts and feelings. For one thing, the value proposition of S10e muscles out the middle child S10. Further, Samsung wins at pretty much everything — except the camera.

The team also share details on the Android Q public beta. It's available now for Pixel phones and they highlight some of the cool new features.

Daniel Bader, Andrew Martonik, and Alex Dobie deliver a thorough recap of the most significant announcements from MWC. In addition to the innie vs. outie foldable concepts from Samsung and Huawei, they identify which version of the Galaxy S10 will appeal to which users.

They also look at the (possibly DOA) LG G8 and V50, three new Xperia phones from Sony that show the company putting up a strong fight, plus the bargain priced but decked out cameras of the Nokia 9 PureView.
