PSA: Refurbished AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 4 batteries recalled for potential overheating issues

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Oh, look: another Samsung battery recall. Though not as widespread as the Note7 debacle, this one is still important to pay attention to. If you received a refurbished AT&T Galaxy Note 4 (like for an insurance replacement) between December 2016 and April 2017, listen up.

Samsung and FedEx Supply Chain have determined that some of the non-OEM (i.e. Samsung didn't manufacture them) batteries used in these refurbished devices are counterfeit and show anomalies that would cause the cell to overheat.

Hands-on: Battery Charge Limit for rooted devices does exactly what you expect

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

Those of us here at Android Police have a lot of phones, and that's putting it lightly. It's not just because we like basking in the light of a dozen tiny differently calibrated displays (though that is one of the unofficial perks). We actually need different hardware and software configurations on hand to test and compare against. Between device compatibility for new apps, checking APK releases for differences, and test environments, our desks end up being monuments/graves to recent phone history.

Monday, July 10th, 2017

These days, it's hard to survive without external power for our smartphones. The 3000mAh or so units that are inside can't last throughout all the browsing, gaming, picture-taking, and media consumption that many of us do every day. But if you don't already have a battery pack (or if you just need a bigger one), Amazon has the Anker PowerCore 26800 that stores a whopping, you guessed it, 26,800mAh of juice for only $41.99.

Amended complaint filed in ongoing Nexus 6P early shutdown and bootloop lawsuit

Friday, May 26th, 2017

nexus2cee_6p-728x485

The Nexus 6P lawsuit we previously reported on twice in April has been recently amended, and the venue of the suit seems to have changed to northern California.  The latest filings have expanded the total number of actions in the suit from 10 to 23, with claimants hailing from 11 different states. It's still early days, and this more recent filing doesn't mean that the case has advanced, merely that the attorneys involved have decided to expand and tweak things after the initial filing.

Android O feature spotlight: Google explains the new actionable battery menu

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Google is focusing on battery life in Android O by clamping down on what apps can do in the background. At the same time, Android O includes a new battery settings menu that attempts to present your usage in a more understandable way. Instead of simply showing how much juice an app used, it puts battery use in the context of how you use the phone.

When you see an app at the top of your Nougat battery stats, it's not always clear if that's because you used it a lot (so you'd expect it to be high) or the app is just doing something it shouldn't be doing.

Now you can get it for $329 on Amazon, $170 off the usual price of $499.
