Google has postponed their Android 11 event and beta, but there is a feature drop for Pixel phones that brings new features along with vague battery life promises.
Jerry Hildenbrand, Andrew Martonik, and Daniel Bader also examine rumors of a new Android TV dongle and the current state of streaming devices. OnePlus 8 Pro is difficult, if not impossible, to find. So that makes it hard to recommend this otherwise excellent device.
