Google designer Ivy Ross shows off prototypes of Pixel 2, Pixelbook, Home Mini, and more

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

Prototypes are always cool to see, but us consumers don't often get to do so. It's nice to take a look at how the designs of products evolve from the drawing board all the way to our homes, pockets, and backpacks. An interview with Google hardware designer Ivy Ross recently went up on The Keyword, and embedded within are photos of several Google products' prototypes.

[Deal Alert] Save 50% on Pixel Buds ($79.50 off) with purchase of Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL on the Google Store

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

The Pixel Buds are priced exactly the same as Apple's AirPods at $159, but that's more than most people are willing to pony up for earbuds. If you were on the lookout for a discount and you've also been considering a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, perhaps the Google Store's latest deal of 50% off will entice you.

It's worth noting that the Pixel Buds aren't a perfect product. Our review mentioned several flaws, though the discount does make them more worthy of consideration.

Google is looking into Android 8.1 lockscreen swipe issues on Pixel devices

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

I'd wager that most owners of Pixel phones use the fingerprint sensors on the back to unlock their phones, but there are circumstances in which using the backup PIN, pattern, or password is necessary. Many Pixel owners, myself included, have noticed that it's become rather difficult to swipe the lockscreen up on Android 8.1 Oreo. Google is aware of the problem and is looking into it.

The most prominent issue is having to swipe all the way to the top of the screen to reveal the PIN/pattern/password input, but that seems to only be because it's the most-used action.

The Kinda Blue Pixel 2 is now available on Project Fi

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

Google has this nasty habit of making the prettiest Pixels the hardest to get. Remember the Really Blue limited edition Pixel last year? This year, the Kinda Blue variant is only available in the smaller 5-inch form factor, and it's been exclusive to Verizon all this time. That changes today. You can now get the Kinda Blue Pixel 2 on Project Fi as well.

The Kinda Blue Pixel 2 has a black front and light blue back.

PSA: At A Glance widget on Pixel 2 added flight information

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

When the Pixel 2 was announced in October, the new At A Glance widget at the top of the launcher was introduced and said to have calendar events, with traffic and flight updates coming later. Then when the Pixel 2 launched, traffic updates were already there as well, but flight info was still missing. That's been there for several weeks, I first noticed it around mid-December when I was traveling to Dubai, but it could have been added even earlier.

Google posts Nexus/Pixel system images and OTA files for January 2018 patches

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Google is getting an early start in 2018 by rolling out the monthly patches for Nexus and Pixel devices. The OTA files and full system images are available a few days earlier than usual, and devices should begin seeing updates in the not too distant future. It looks like several devices have two different builds available this month, so you'll have to grab the right one if you just can't wait.

As usual, the OTA files are live for those of you without an unlocked bootloader.

Get the Pixel 2’s portrait mode on your first-gen Pixel phones, Nexus 6P, and Nexus 5X with this mod [APK Download]

Monday, January 1st, 2018

Portrait mode became one of the most popular features for cameras in 2017. Apple's iPhone lineup, the Galaxy Note8, the OnePlus 5T, and even the Essential Phone have it in their camera apps. However, owners of older phones were left out of the fun. Luckily, serial Google Camera modder Charles Chow has created a modded Google Camera APK with portrait mode on board for the first-generation Pixel and Pixel XL, the Nexus 6P, and the Nexus 5X.

The most (and least) popular devices used to browse Android Police in 2017

Saturday, December 30th, 2017

Last August, I published a list of the most and least popular smartphones and tablets used on Android Police. That post was surprisingly popular - and I've had repeated requests for a follow-up. Now that well over a year has passed, I think the time is right for a new installment, and one spanning a far greater time period than the month-long data set I used to compile the last version.
