Google Allo is the best way to send love notes without even trying

This one quick trick made possible by Assistant is a great reminder of the inherent power that exists in Google’s little messaging app.

Admittedly, it was a bummer that Google failed to make any mention in the I/O keynote of what else Allo might have in store for it. There wasn’t even a tease for the much anticipated desktop app coming to fruition, nor was there much hope that SMS integration would come and take the chat  [Read More…]

Another Google I/O is in the can, and everyone has something to say about what they saw, including the Android Central staff!

The icons on the Galaxy S8 are unique… and really mismatched.

The squircle icons with the incomplete wireframe logos are very interesting, and there is a very real appeal to that look… but it doesn’t cover all of the apps that come on the Samsung Galaxy S8 — it doesn’t even cover all the Samsung apps on the Galaxy S8 — and it covers none of the apps that come from Google Play or Samsung Apps. That’s  [Read More…]

Best Ways to Keep Your Galaxy S8 Camera Lens Clean

If there’s one thing wrong with the Galaxy S8, it’s the placement of that fingerprint scanner so close to the camera.

I’m not about to rehash all that’s been written about the placement of the fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S8, but needless to say, if you’re using that feature to unlock your phone, your finger is going to frequently tap on the camera lens.

Maybe your fingers will develop the muscle memory to find the fingerprint  [Read More…]

Best Family Plan

What’s the best family plan in the U.S.?

If you’re looking to save money on your monthly mobile bill, then signing up multiple lines is the best way to go. The Big Four carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon) don’t really have “family plans” anymore, per se, but they do have multi-line plans that are similar to buying in bulk.

Here’s the best family plan you can get from the  [Read More…]
