Josh Vergara returns from his trip to San Francisco for the Microsoft Build conference and has a few things to say about it. Joining him are Joe Hindy and Jonathan Feist to also talk about Kingdom Hearts Unchained X, the finally released official Reddit app and our opinions on reviews in the Google Play Store, plus we chat the LG G5, again, and a bit about cameras and the future value in modular phone design. 

We'll be back in less than a fortnight with more; for now, we hope you enjoy episode 058 of our show, and remember, painted metal is still, technically, metal, will that change your opinion of LG's new phone? Be sure to check out our post on Android Authority for links and details.

With Josh away, Jonathan Feist, Joe Hindy and Nirave Gondhia get up to all sorts of April Fool's Day inspired trouble. This episode is not available in SnoopaVision, there is no Nokia A1 in the works, at least not that we know of, and the best smartphone ever, well, we still think we're on to something.

Joins us as we chat about Nintendo's first attempts at an Android game, Mittomo, we talk about our favorite April Fool's Day pranks as well, but one of our own gets us really thinking, what do we really want out of our ideal Android phone? You had the chance to answer that on the site, and our discussion continually turns to the LG G5, does that mean we think the LG G5 is the ideal phone? Listen on to find out, but one thing is for sure, we know where we stand on the plastic vs metal conversation.

Getting back to our normal routine, for one week, Joshua Vergara hosts as Joe Hindy and Jonathan Feist record on a Saturday. We concede that some of the biggest news from the week is the announcement of the new iPhone SE and iPad Pro 9.7, both of which we don't think will disrupt the market at all, but we're looking forward to the iPad coverage over on TabTimes. 

Talking about Pokemon Go leads to a quick discussion on AR vs VR technology - some of us think AR is the way of the future, others think VR will win out, but we all agree, there is room to grow. Finally, Joe has to go clean his back yard... No, that's not it, we talked about display technology, we think we like the fact that AMOLED panels can now be produced at a lower cost than LCD, but that is dependent on the resolution.

The Android Authority team goes outside of their general zone and visits SXSW, the film/music/tech festival held in the wonderful city of Austin, Texas! After a few days of getting to know the show itself, Joshua Vergara was joined by co-founder Darcy Lacouvee and Managing Editor Nirave Gondhia to attend a number of panels teaching the in and outs of virtual reality and 360 video. The gist of the panels focused on storytelling, the application of VR for more than just the entertainment business, and the future of the next big thing in content creation.

In this podcast, however, the three were joined by a native Texan now hailing from Louisiana, writer John Dye. Many of you fans of Android Authority have probably read John's writing on the website and enjoyed his way with words.

So, without any further ado, listen (and watch on YouTube) the guys gush about VR cameras and videos!

What was supposed to be a thorough discussion on Android N, turns into Joshua Vergara, Joe Hindy and Jonathan Feist catching up, talking about apps, Amazon and sharing some strange theories before getting on point. Android N is packed with plenty of cool new features, we explore a few of them, including our strong opinions on the App Drawer. Josh was happy to be home from MWC and an extended trip to the UK, only to find himself on the road to Austin for SXSW before this podcast could be produced for your listening pleasure.

Joined by fellow London correspondent and returning podcast guest Robert Triggs, Josh and Nirave manage to get a live podcast recorded and filmed in a random hotel lobby in Central London. As Josh tries to handle having two Brits flank him on the podcast, Nirave has a slew of newly appointed royal names for the regular hosts of the podcast and Triggs brings a calm and collected opinion to an otherwise topic-filled episode of the AA Podcast. Join them as they talk about the ongoing S7 vs G5 debate, the potential impact of RemixOS, and the possible implications following the loss of the app drawer in future versions of Android. All coming to you live from London!

It took way too long to get this episode out, but the spotty WiFi connections across Barcelona and the 5+ GB size of the original YouTube edition kept Josh from getting this special podcast out to you earlier. So sorry, but not too much because this episode is still EPIC.

Coming to you live from 'the other side of the pond,' Joshua Vergara is joined by a great group of special guests to bring you this MWC 2016 special episode. Nicole Scott (@nicole_scooter), Jaime Rivera (@jaime_rivera), Michael Fischer (@Captain2Phones) and Myriom Joire (@tnkgrl) all recount their first days of the show in Barcelona, Spain. Talk about the Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 lead to a spirited discussion on the Launcher situation on Android. Check in to see how these five feel about the idea of removing the app drawer and so much more on this 90 minute special episode. 

Our regular hosts will have plenty to say about MWC next week, but for now, enjoy the party atmosphere from the show, and be sure to watch the YouTube version for even more fun. Don't forget to check out the written companion at androidauthority.com.

In Josh's absence this week, it was only fair that we poke fun at him for his pink iPhone. Jonathan Feist, Joe Hindy and Nirave Gondhia take the stage for discussion on the upcoming Final Fantasy IX release on Android, Marshmallow on the Samsung Galaxy S6, a new approach for the Galaxy S7 and then ramble on about Launchers, skins, phone distribution philosophy and more.

After issuing a few SPOILER ALERTS for apparently no reason at all (don't worry, they aren't all that bad), the fellas get into a slightly more structured look at the week's Android news. Josh, Jonathan, Andrew, and Joe each brings stories that they liked over the last week and discuss.

New app updates, reactions to Google's unification of Android elements, and thoughts about the recently released Huawei Mate 8 review are on the table this week. For links to these stories, head over to the show notes at AndroidAuthority.com!

Pretty much everyone from the AA Podcast got to head to CES and see some great technology - except Joe. With that in mind, Joshua Vergara and Jonathan Feist ask Joe Hindy's opinion as a sort of outsider regarding what went down at the show. The guys end up reacting to Huawei as the apparent star of the show and Joe rants about why the rest of the companies may have dropped the ball this year.

We're all glad to be back home and healthy after the Consumer Electronics Show of 2016, so join us for our return episode of the AA Podcast!

In the dead of night on the first official day of CES, Josh gets together with Jonathan Feist and Edgar Cervantes to recount all of the events leading up to that evening. Press conferences, free phones, Android/PC bridges, and a lot of gushing about the official Android Authority booth in the South Hall are abound in this episode of the AAP.

Oh, and Josh makes a big confession.

Join us as Josh brings you a podcast every day that Android Authority is in Las Vegas for CES! And, along with our faithful podcast listeners, all of you YouTube fans can enjoy full video podcasts, too!

At media event Pepcom the night before CES actually began, the Android Authority Podcast team (with a returning Joshua Vergara) huddled around one of the small standing tables to drink and talk tech, Vegas, and the spectacle that is CES (that hadn't even started yet).

Joining Josh, Nirave, and Edgar is Nicole Scott of MobileGeeks along with appearances by PocketNow's Stephen Schenck, Adam Doud, and a brief Michael Fisher and Jaime Rivera sighting.

It's an hour of craziness as the podcast guests wind down the first couple days of work in Las Vegas.

Join us for our last episode of 2015! Jonathan Feist, Andrew Grush, Joe Hindy and Nirave Gondhia are all on board to share a few laughs as we recap our first year of the podcast. We guessed a few things right, and even more wrong, but we joked and laughed through it all. When we eventually recovered from the humor of our year, we finally talked about our hopes and expectations for 2016 and CES, which happens next week. We're stoked to have Josh returning at CES, look for his return in our next episode. This is as good as 'The Best of 2015' as we get, enjoy!

For this holiday week, Jonathan Feist, Andrew Grush and Joe Hindy got together to talk about their plans and the weather. Our boss and a few of our YouTube personalities, including Josh, sent a greeting message for you, and we managed to talk about Google's self driving car initiative for no more than a few seconds before going off track, literally and figuratively. I suppose we should conclude that at least two thirds of our panel would benefit from this expected partnership with Ford.

With just one more show before the end of the year, we want to thank you again, it is your continued support that makes this all possible. We enjoy sharing a laugh with you each week. We hope that you and yours have a wonderful holiday season.

Join us for a very special episode of the Android Authority Podcast! The full panel gets together (Joe Hindy, Jonathan Feist, Nirave Gondhia, Andrew Grush) and follow Josh on a Thanksgiving journey - they talk about the different plans they have for Thanksgiving before getting into the typical talk of what they're grateful for. However, sprinkled among all of that are small rants about family, a bit of wine and whiskey, and talk about what YOU are thankful for! It's the longest episode we might have ever recorded, but it also might be one of the funnest.

If you're coming back from the Black Friday shopping, we hope that you stayed safe. If you're just listening along with your Thanksgiving leftovers, pour the gravy on the turkey and press play!

Nov 23, 2015

Joe Hindy and Jonathan Feist get together this week with Josh to talk about the topics of the week, but there weren't too many things to talk about during another slow news week. With the holiday season fast approaching, the guys talk about Black Friday one more time, pondering what items they might want to get if they got out of the house to actually battle the crowds (Joe has already decided that he won't).

But after a few check-ins and some talk about Josh's experience appearing on TWiT's All About Android, the gang checks on their subscription services and risks realizing just how much money they're burning on what has become a micro-payment, subscription-based world. Join us for a really chill but enjoyable episode of the Android Authority Podcast!

Also, this week we will be getting together for a special Thanksgiving episode - so stay tuned!

Josh Vergara leads Andrew Grush, Joe Hindy, Jonathan Feist and Nirave Gondhia through an interesting conversation on carriers, the idea was to discuss net neutrality and T-Mobile's new video streaming perks, but we divert into looking at pricing and features. We share some of our own insights on data services in our local areas and for our international travel. From there, Josh and Nirave both have the new BlackBerry Priv in hand, come hear what they have to say about this new Android phone with a slide-out keyboard. Enjoy AA Podcast #040.
