Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

Are you ready for a surprise? Paranoid Android/AOSPA, of long-standing ROM fame, has just pushed out a status update on the project's plans, as well as the first ever Oreo releases for the ROM. Unfortunately for the vast majority of us, they're only available for a handful of Sony phones.

Monday, February 26th, 2018

Sony's Xperia XZ1 really isn't a bad phone if you can get over its 1080p display. The starting price of $699.99 was a little ambitious, but we've seen a couple of price drops since then. This latest deal marks the lowest price that we've seen thus far for the XZ1: $495, over $200 off the MSRP.

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.

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.
