Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

An update to Google's Phone app began rolling out to users earlier today. Besides enabling the seamless video calling feature with Duo, which also works on v14, this update comes with a few additions of its own. The previously discussed Assisted Dialing feature for international travelers has been enabled and is ready to make life a little easier, and users on Android 8.1 will now see the white navigation bar that's been creeping into a few of Google's apps.

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Timeless as the tides, the prices for Samsung's 2017 flagships continue to creep their way down. This time it's the unlocked dual-SIM international variant that's caught our attention. Right now over on eBay, you can pick up a Galaxy S8 (G950FD) for $569.99 or a Galaxy S8 Plus (G955FD) for $619.99. That saves you $100 in the case of the S8 and $150 for the S8 Plus. 

These are the international dual-SIM SKUs, which has both benefits and drawbacks.

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.
