An update to Google's Phone app began rolling out to users earlier today.

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Samsung has slimmed down the number of its apps in recent devices, but there are still a couple that come preinstalled. Its email app, appropriately named Samsung Email, is one of those. Samsung Email has just passed 100 million downloads, which is nothing short of a tremendous number.

As you might expect, Samsung Email does what email apps usually do. It also supports POP3, IMAP, and Exchange ActiveSync so that all of your emails can be used in a single app.

Google Contacts v2.4 readies multi-SIM support and prepares a new suggestion to fix nameless contacts [APK Teardown]

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

A new version of Google Contacts came out yesterday, but it unfortunately doesn't seem to solve the recent issue with contact syncing that some Oreo users are reporting. This update appears to mostly fix bugs, but it does come with a couple of minor tweaks and some preparation for new feature additions in the future.

What's New

Left: v2.3. Right: v2.4.

I rarely bother with pointing out phrasing changes when they don't actually change any functionality, but since the Suggestions screen will be immediately relevant to the teardown and this change speaks to the nature of what's to come, it's worth giving a mention to this one.
