Joshua Vergara, Joe Hindy, Jonathan Feist and David Imel spend some time this week being thankful for you, our readers and listeners, in our Thanksgiving special, the Android Authority Podcast #089. Before we express our gratitude, we dive into the theory and horror of Black Friday sales, a crazy way to wrap up a family holiday in the United States. From there, we explore the news, including the OnePlus 3T, What a flagship means to us, Samsung preemptively defending the Galaxy S7 battery, our issues with early leaks, including some uncertainty on the LG V30.

We have much to be thankful for this year, and we hope that you and yours get the chance to get together, enjoy a good meal and be thankful for one another, if nothing else. Happy Thanksgiving folks!

Joshua Vergara and Jonathan Feist are hanging out in LA, taking in the LA Auto Show, or at least Automobility LA, the press version of the show, and the immensely entertaining launch event for the DJI Inspire 2 and Phantom 4 Pro drones. Joined by special guest Nicole Scott (@Nicole_Scooter) the conversation started with the cars of the car show, followed by Hyperloop One and our thoughts on outdated Android tech in modern cars. Don't worry, we have Android stuff to talk about thanks to Joe and David

DJI was a major event for us, reporting the new Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2 on our partner site, Charged.io. With full Hollywood style theatrics, and a price tag to match, these are some impressive drones. Having said that, Josh and Jonathan were invited to a press event for the DJI Mavic Pro for the day after recording this show. Writing this up after the fact, stay tuned for our Mavic Pro coverage!

While half the team was at play, Joe Hindy led the charge with David Imel back at home, recording an informative take on the news of the week. A decent check-in turns to thew OnePlus 3T, now that it's official, the Snapdragon 835 and how Google and Facebook plan to do away with fake news.

Joshua Vergara does his best to keep the team in line, while Jonathan Feist experiences internet issues and Lahn Nguyen and David Imel keep us entertained. Another informative episode of the Android Authority Podcast is in the bag, with no Joe. After checking in with our avoidance of the election topic and some laptop issues, we dive into high-priced phones. The Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9 reminds us of other expensive brands, leading us to think of products in a theoretical financed world, an exploration of consumerism.

Self exploration continues as we talk the upcoming OnePlus 3T, dreaming of what we want to see in the new device, remembering what the original OnePlus offered. Finally, we close out the show with a chat on Google Home, Google Assistant and Google Daydream VR.

Joshua Vergara, Jonathan Feist, Joe Hindy and David Imel enjoy a long check in before getting into another great episode of the Android Authority Podcast. Starting the show off with a lengthy Halloween talk (Joe dressed as Spyro,) the show dove into the Xiaomi Mi MIX, followed by the LG V20, which Joe has been using, then we talk some battery issues with the Nexus 6P on Nougat. Rounding out the show is a fun rumor mill, running down the fun that could be the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the OnePlus 3T.

On a special note, shout out to David Imel and Edgar Cervantes, both are doing well recovering as needed from recent vehicular incidents.

Jonathan Feist returns from Japan, Joe Hindy and David Imel have questions and our regular Android Authority Podcast tech talk ensues for another episode. Joe is a little upset about fake Amazon reviews, Jonathan drones on for half an hour about Japan, (which was awesome, by the way), David is unhappy with Google's versioning strategy, but happy for a Messenger update, Kris Carlon said the Apple A10 chip is pretty powerful, we talk it through and Xiaomi has a couple new phones, the Mi Note 2 and the Mi MIX, which Josh was in China to put his hands on.

Finally, we take to Twitter and the Android Authority Forums to take your questions and comments, leading us to ponder if Google is positioning itself to purchase HTC. Think about it.

Joshua Vergara, Joe Hindy and David Imel give great insight into their personal lives on the latest episode of the Android Authority Podcast. The check in includes a remote hello from Jonathan from Japan, and Josh's experience at the LeEco event in San Francisco. Topics start off with the Google Pixel, talking value and ingress protection, Josh opens up a live Q&A session for the LG V20, a phone that was promoted as the first to sell with Android 7.0 Nougat, but isn't actually out yet.

LeEco had a big event, Josh sounds like he enjoyed it for its dramatic approach, and the affordable Le Pro 3. An electric car, big screen TV and a bicycle made it to the show as well. The chat rounds out with a bit of news and some nostalgia over phones of the past.

In an explosive episode (sorry, I had to do that) Josh and Joe are joined by returning hosts Lanh and David to talk about the week's top Android news. The Galaxy Note 7 discontinuation is obviously the biggest pieces of news and there is ample time given to the topic. However, before all that, David gives his recounting of the Oculus Connect event that he and VRSource covered just a couple weeks back. Lanh gives us his quick podcast review of the Sony Xperia XZ, the full review of which is on Android Authority; and, finally, we talk about Nougat 7.1 and the Developer Preview that basically leaves out Google Assistant.

But perhaps the craziest piece of news actually came from the podcast itself - that Josh has been buying faulty USB-C cables and it actually claimed a victim. Yeah, it's that bad. Josh is inconsolable. Listen to hear more!

Oct 11, 2016

Join Joshua Vergara, Jonathan Feist, Joe Hindy, and a returning Nirave Gondhia as they get together for another fun episode of the Android Authority Podcast! In this episode, it's all about the Google Pixel event where we were treated to announcements of the new Google products for 2016. Before getting into the actual devices and announcements, this week's check-in is largely a talk about Craig David, a favorite recording of artist of Josh and Nirave, who performed at the UK Google event (basically, Josh's FOMO was real). From there, however, the guys get into the big discussions - Google Wifi kicks off the event talk as Feist gives his thoughts on what could be a good solution for in-home connectivity. Google Home comes up next, and the general thoughts were that Home poses an interesting new direction for Google's robust and somewhat scary Learning Matrix. Speaking of the Learning Matrix, a tweet from a happy listener makes the guys ponder if Google's design direction for their products simply masks the fact that Google's services - like Google Assistant - are a bit too smart and somewhat terrifying. And finally the guys get into a big discussion regarding the Google Pixel phones and why they might be a little divisive for fans of Google's previous hardware endeavors - basically, it comes down to Pixel vs Nexus. See the timecodes below to see, roughly, where these topics all take place in the podcast and enjoy this episode of the Android Authority Podcast!

Join Joshua Vergara, along with Nicole Scott (@Nicole_Scooter), Jaime Rivera (@Jaime_Rivera) and Juan Carlos Bagnell (@SomeGadgetGuy) to talk IFA 2016. A meta discussion on tech events, including lots of talk about recent device announcements, turns to wearables and how they are becoming gender specific, which leads to gender role generalizations and possibly misguided expectations in the industry. At least IFA Young sounds like a ton of fun, for the millennials. Finally, VR takes the stage, with debate on rollout philosophy and the value for the average user.

Seven. Joshua Vergara has his hands full this week with a total personality list of seven. Joe Hindy, Jonathan Feist, Andrew Grush, Nirave Gondhia, Lanh Nguyen and John Dye are all on deck to talk about seven, the Note 7 that is. In a particularly on-point show, even if a little extra long, the topic is almost exclusively the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Opinions come freely, particularly for the three that have had the chance to hold the phone already. With opinions ranging from unimpressed all the way up to 'I pre-ordered mine already,' join us to talk about the latest from Samsung.

With Joshua Vergara away at a Samsung event, Jonathan Feist and Joe Hindy bring John Dye back onto the show - who ends up joining from a coffee shop due to weather issues in his area. A fairly chill conversation ensues, including words like 'reprobate' and attempts to pronounce John Legere. Topics on deck include the new ZTE Axon 7, a slick looking flagship calibre phone that has Bluetooth, Prisma, the app that makes your images look good, and talk about rumors of two Nexus phones coming soon from HTC. Sailfish and Marlin are the codenames for 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch phones with similar specs, save for display resolution, if nothing else.

Joshua Vergara is joined by Joe Hindy, Jonathan Feist and are happy to have Lanh Nguyen partake in the shenanigans as they round out a short discussion, possibly ending our long running topic of Pokemon. Once that was out of the way, Josh asked the team about their desires for Comic-Con, leading back to a quick chat about messaging applications. Snickers have nougat. Finally, our discussion on the new Motorola (Lenovo) Moto Z line turns into an existential conversation on the review process, USB Type-C audio and how great or terrible mods and customizations can be on the Moto phone.

Joshua Vergara leads the team through a lengthy introduction, where Joe Hindy talks Pokemon Go, Nirave Gondhia talks about returning home to the UK and Jonathan Feist is hanging out in downtown Portland for a while. Discussion turns to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, we have plenty to say, particularly expanding our conversation to talk about modern smartphone needs, features, competitive edge and more. We round out the show with a lively discussion about USB Type-C audio, as opposed to the old 3.5mm jack. Then Nirave fell asleep. In his absence, we discussed Amazon Prime Day for a moment, where Josh shopped for a 1GB hard drive.

That's what he said. In a super chill, but overly thoughtful episode, Joshua Vergara, Joe Hindy and Jonathan Feist muse over the release of Pokemon GO in North America and discuss another strong game title hitting Android, Final Fantasy VII is ready for download. Finally, the discussion turns to the ups and downs of beauty mode as a feature of front facing cameras, this after Mel Wells lost all her freckles to a Selfie.

Joshua Vergara is back, safe and sound, and is joined by Joe Hindy, Jonathan Feist and Nirave Gondhia. Tune in to listen to our ramblings on Brexit, just a little, but only after we dive into the fancy new name for Android N - Android Nougat - but how do you pronounce that now?!?! Final Fantasy Brave Exvius takes the stage for a bit, before we discuss the recent leaks of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and its expected, but maybe not appreciated, iris scanner.

Our best wishes go out to Josh, his family and his neighbors as they deal with a forest fire dangerously close to their homes in California.

Jonathan Feist leads a wildly off topic episode while Joe Hindy, Andrew Grush and Nirave Gondhia help keep the laughs rolling. We eventually get down to the leathery hot mess that is the naming schemes of the X and Z for Sony and Motorola. The Sony Xperia X line, as well as the Lenovo Motorola Moto Z line, offer all the right specs, but you'll have to listen to find out if we are still underwhelmed with the devices or ready to drop cash on these new phones. In the final moments, Joe is allowed to address the somewhat ridiculous idea that the Android app market is in decline, come analyze some data with us.

Coming live from E3 2016 in Los Angeles, Josh is joined by Jonathan Feist and heads of VRSource Android Grush and John Velasco (for his first ever podcast!) to talk video games and VR from the trade show floor. Well, not really, because they couldn't record among the different game vendors and displays but instead had to sit in the South Hall Lobby as the final day of the show winded down.

With VR taking the spotlight at this year's E3, this episode of the podcast becomes basically a VRSource podcast, but the antics are about as #AAPodcast as it can get. John Velasco fits right into the talks as he recounts experiences with the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive, and Playstation VR! The rest of the guys also share the fun they had escaping from the real world and embracing all kinds of reality!

Head over to VRSource for all the best news on all kinds of reality - and keep it here for the Android Authority Podcast, discussing topics in Android every week.
