  • [Deal Alert] Save up to $290 on a Pixel or Pixel XL at Best Buy with Verizon service

    The Pixel and Pixel XL are both great phones, although they’re getting a bit long in the tooth. Buying one for full price is a though sell right now, but it’s about time for some deals. If the Pixel 2 hype hasn’t completely taken you over, you can pic…

  • What makes you choose Android over iOS? [Roundtable]

    Android can regrow hair, get you in shape and save you 15% on your car insurance. Not really.

    Here at Android Central everyone has something to say. We have different opinions about politics, business and anything else with a side to pick. But one thing we all have in common is that we use Android instead of iOS. We might have an iPhone for one reason or another, but when you call us an Android phone will ring.

    The important thing here isn’t Andrew and Jerry having late night conversations about a flat tax. It’s that a group of people who don’t have a lot in common use Android, and why they use it.

    Let’s find out by going around the table.

    Alex Dobie

    The first smartphone I owned was an iPhone 3G — I made that jump after having used an iPod Touch for a little while before, and back then it felt like taking a huge leap into the future. The only real Android competition at the time was the T-Mobile G1, which nearly tempted me away. But looking at it as a regular consumer, the …

  • Andy Rubin says Essential Phone will be available ‘in a few weeks’

    Smartphone startup Essential is headed by Android founder Andy Rubin, but that doesn’t mean it’s immune from delays. After promising to launch the Essential Phone in June, the company missed the deadline with nary a word. Rubin has now relayed a messa…

  • Finish off the week with 38 temporarily free and 36 on-sale apps

    The end of the week is upon us, finally. I have a busy weekend ahead of me, but I still took the time to compile this app sales post for you all. While I didn’t find anything that I can, without a doubt, heartily recommend today, there are still a lot of apps, games, and icon packs (& customization) to look through. Be sure to head back to Wednesday’s list, too.

  • Verizon Wireless may be throttling Netflix and YouTube streams

    Throttling seems to be an unavoidable practice these days.

    Use too much data and you get throttled. Use data on a busy network cell and you get throttled. But the throttling numerous reddit users have been seeing doesn’t seem to match any conventional rules. Users on both new and old “Unlimited” plans are seeing speeds drop on two of the nation’s most popular video platforms regardless of how much data they’ve used.

    Once upon a time, Netflix essentially throttled itself for mobile users to save their users from high data bills, but Netflix gave that up in lieu of a handy in-app mobile data control. Even with Netflix set to Unlimited, several Verizon users are seeing consistently capped speeds at 10 Mbps on fast.com, Netflix’s speed test, as well on YouTube with the “stats for nerds” enabled.

    10 Mbps is loads better than the 1.5 Mbps throttling we’ve seen on T-Mobile once they start throttling accounts. It’s just good enough for 1080p video, but not for any HDR video, and being t…

  • U.S. Department of Labor investigation into Google gender pay gap could change Silicon Valley

    Android’s maker has been ordered to hand over 8,000 employees’ contact info for failing to adhere to equal pay laws.

    It’s been a few days since a judge ruled that Google had to hand over 8,000 of its employees’ contact information to the U.S. Department of Labor, but the reason for it remains a prescient matter — and one worth studying up on before heading into the weekend.

    Android’s maker is currently under investigation for allegedly failing to comply with equal pay laws, those of which were initially set to abolish any pay disparity based on gender. (Fifty years on and we’re still having issues with this, though the gap is getting narrower.) The Washington Post reports that evidence of this was uncovered during a routine audit.

    The Department of Labor will have to sift through all 8,000 of the contacts — which Google bartered down from 21,000 — and interview each person about how much they make, and then cross reference it with the rest of their co-workers in …

  • Essential Phone is coming ‘in a few weeks’ after certification delay

    A deadline apparently isn’t essential to the Essential Phone.

    Andy Rubin’s bizarre, bezel-less Essential Phone went up for order at the end of May. It was promised to ship in June. It is now the middle of July, and still the Essential Phone is not in buyers’ hands. And it’s not going to be in buyers’ hands for another couple of weeks, but today Essential is acknowledging their delays in an email sent to early registrants (and later in a public tweet) from Andy Rubin.

    We’ve been working around the clock to get our first device in your hands. See this update from Andy. pic.twitter.com/bm5xm5XRKS— Essential (@essential) July 21, 2017
    In a recent email to customers, Andy Rubin says that they’re as anxious to get phones to users as buyers are to get their new phones. Rubin claims the phone is currently being tested and certified by carriers in the U.S.
    and around the globe, and that units will ship out in the few weeks once all that’s over. Testing and certifications for carriers…

  • Keep your devices charged with Samsung-certified Micro-USB cables for $20

    Micro-USB cables are a dime a dozen, but when you need one most, it’s nowhere to be found. If you’re rocking a Samsung phone or tablet, you’re likely in need of a Micro-USB cable quite regularly (unless you have the Galaxy S8).

    Keep your devices synced and charged for $20 Learn more

    If your phone’s on low battery, it can be incredibly annoying to have to sit right next to a wall outlet to charge up your device. It can also be a pain if you’re charging off your laptop, but the cable’s only long enough to reach your thigh. You need a reliable Micro-USB cable that’s long enough to keep everything comfortable.

    At Android Central Digital Offers you can get a 3-pack of Samsung-certified Micro-USB cables and a fast charging adapter for only $19.99 . This bundle regularly retails for $39.99, so you save 50%.

  • Galaxy Note 8 renders give clean look at boxier design, Infinity Display

    We just can’t wait for the Galaxy Note 8, can we?

    After last year’s debacle, I think it’s safe to say, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may be the most hotly anticipated Galaxy Note ever. Whether you wanted to upgrade last year but never got the chance — or worse, upgraded and had to give your Note 7 back — there are many users out there who’ve been waiting for a new Note more anxiously than in years past. And while we’ll have to wait until August to see much of the Note 8’s software, we’re getting yet another look at its sexy exterior with some new casemaker renders from BGR.

    The front of the device matches the Galaxy S8, but we see the new dual-camera setup on the back of the phone alongside that rear-mounted — and quite high-up — fingerprint scanner. The ports on the bottom of the phone match the S8, as well, except for that distinctive S Pen slot next to that single speaker grille. These are renderings made by casemakers, so while some details might change, t…
