Google will begin certifying Android devices for business use, starting with phones from LG, BlackBerry, Motorola, and others

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

When it comes to security, Android devices are a mixed bag - to say the least. Few manufacturers make promises about long-term support, and timely security updates are rare. This is understandably a concern for large businesses, which often don't want to worry about security flaws or constantly deploy new devices. For many enterprise customers, the question of which Android phones should be used is difficult to answer.

Google's solution to this problem is the 'Android Enterprise Recommended' program, which defines which Android devices are ideal for business use.

The Xperia XZ1 is Sony's flagship Android phone at the moment. It was originally announced at IFA 2017, and it arrived in the United States in September. The original price was a whopping $699.99, but as usual, the price started to fall shortly after launch. The XZ1 dropped to $599 back in November, and now you can get the 'Warm Silver' model for $543.44 from Amazon.

If you're not familiar with the XZ1, it has a 5.2" 1080p IPS display, a Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 19MP rear-facing camera, a 13MP front-facing camera, and a 2700mAh battery.

Here are all the phones updated to support Project Treble [Continuously Updated]

Sunday, November 26th, 2017

One of the most important features included in Android 8.0 Oreo is 'Project Treble,' Google's attempt to modularize Android. We covered it in detail here, but in a nutshell, Treble separates all the low-level device drivers (known as the 'vendor implementation') from the rest of Android. This makes updating phones/tablets to the latest version of Android much easier for manufacturers, as long as they already support Treble.

There's another major reason why Project Treble is getting people excited - custom ROMs.

Google’s Project Treble could start a custom ROM revolution

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

Android phone buyers have been begging Google for years to do something about the platform's typically slow updates. As of this month, Android 8.0 Oreo only has 0.3% market share among Android devices, Marshmallow (released in 2015) is still at 30%, and Lollipop (from 2014) sits at 27%. Google's latest attempt to solve this problem is 'Project Treble,' a major restructuring of Android that is part of 8.0 Oreo

I recommend reading the announcement post for all the details, but I'll briefly explain it here.

Sony has added the Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact to its Open Devices program

A few days ago Sony published the relevant binaries for the latest AOSP version of Android 8.0 Oreo for a number of its phones, and now it's added two newer Xperia models.

The XZ1 and XZ1 Compact were launched at the end of August at IFA 2017 in Berlin.

Sunday, October 1st, 2017

The Xperia XZ1 is Sony's latest flagship, released less than a month ago in the United States. It's probably not the prettiest phone released this year, and it's fairly expensive (like all Sony phones), but it's not a bad device by any means.

The XZ1 has a 5.2" 1080p IPS display, a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 19MP rear-facing camera, a 13MP front-facing camera, and a 2700mAh battery.
