Should you buy the Note 8 or wait for Note 9?

There’s always something better right around the corner.

Without a doubt, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was one of the best large phones to come out in 2017. Samsung absolutely redeemed itself last year following the Note 7 debacle, and with a gorgeous display, excellent S Pen features, and stunning design, the Note 8 is still a joy to use.

However, because of the industry we’re in, there really is always something better coming around the bend.  [Read More…]

Should I buy a Galaxy Note 8 or wait for the Galaxy S9+?

It’s the discussion we have every single year.

With Samsung’s continued strategy of launching both a Galaxy S flagship and a top-end Galaxy Note each year, it creates an odd middle ground for some people where they struggle with deciding to buy the latest Galaxy or wait for the new one just six months away. Right now we’re talking about the Galaxy Note 8, which has been out for over three months now, and the Galaxy S9+, expected to  [Read More…]

From the Editor’s Desk: How much longer do we wait for Essential to figure it out?

Excitement can only last so long before we start expecting the product to match.

I published my initial Essential Phone review on August 18. 11 days later, after a few more software updates and extra time with it, I solidified the review with my final thoughts on the phone. But somehow, today, as we hit one month since Essential deemed its phones available and ready to review, the phone still doesn’t seem … complete. Though the Essential  [Read More…]

Amazon Echo: Buy now or wait for the Amazon Echo 2?

Spend money now and hope something better doesn’t come out soon? Or spend money later and just deal … Well, in this case I’d …

That brings us to today’s question: Is it safe to buy an Amazon Echo today or should we wait  [Read More…]

Should you buy a Galaxy S8+ or wait for the Galaxy Note 8?

You can always wait for the next phone to come out — but should you?

For those who loved the Galaxy Note 7, there’s been a void in their pocket since late 2016. Many Note fans think of the phone as more than just another big-screened device — it’s a special kind of device that can only be replaced by a newer, better Note. So without a Galaxy Note available, what do you use instead?

Since we’re  [Read More…]

Apex Launcher is back and better than ever, but you should wait a while before switching

Apex Launcher isn’t back just yet, but that hasn’t stopped people from saying that it is.

Apex Launcher announced its comeback weeks ago with a May arrival date. Lo, it is May, and and Apex Launcher beta has pushed out for the testers to enjoy. But I’d hold off for a little while.

Hey, I’m as ready for another customization-heavy launcher to join the ranks of Nova Launcher and Action Launcher as anyone else, but after playing  [Read More…]

Sony’s impressive Xperia XZs is available Apr. 5, but you should wait for the Premium

Sony has a new phone out tomorrow, but you may want to wait for the real upgrade.

Sony makes a lot of phones, and many of them aren’t particularly noteworthy in the U.S. Thanks to a long-term contract with Verizon that isn’t set to expire until next year, Sony can’t sell phones with fingerprint sensors in the country, making them more of a difficult proposition than they otherwise would be.

This week, the Xperia XZs is going  [Read More…]

Should you get the Galaxy S8 or wait for the Pixel 2?

Lots to talk about. Let’s chat in the forums!

Android Central is two things (well, it’s many things, but it’s also two things): the feed, and all the great content that comes out of it; and the forums, which are incredibly popular and frequented by millions of people a month.

In the past, we haven’t always done a great job showcasing some of the amazing conversations happening in the forums, and I think with a phone like  [Read More…]

Android users will have to wait a while longer for Outlook Mobile’s add-ins

It’s too bad that Android users weren’t prioritized for an update that brings native Evernote, Giphy, and Trello integration.

Microsoft is celebrating two years of Outlook mobile with a new feature. Unfortunately, it’s only for your iPhone-using friends for now, but at the very least, here’s a preview of what’s to come in three concise GIFs.

Outlook mobile now features add-ins, essentially extensions or plug-ins that help integrate other services into the email app.  [Read More…]
