Back in January, we got our first look at the HTC One X10. Much like the One X9 before it, the X10 is a 5.5" budget phone designed for markets like India. Now we have a better look at it, courtesy of a post on Weibo. Read More
One of the more annoying aspects of the Play Store is that you can't manually check for app updates. We already covered how Google is testing a new installed apps screen, but we didn't get a look at one of the best aspects of it - a refresh button. Read More
The Watch Style is the lower-end of the two smartwatches LG has just released in conjunction with Google. It's not particularly handsome, it's not particularly feature-packed, and at $249, it's not particularly well-priced; however, it's still my favorite Android Wear smartwatch that I've used to date.

Chances are that you haven't seen the LG G5 on any "Best Flagship of 2016" lists. That's understandable; the build quality's a bit iffy, and it's not the best-looking piece of tech in the world. However, at just $299.99 for a brand new, unlocked unit, it's definitely worth looking into, especially since it has features that many other flagships don't even have. Read More
At least since December, the Play Store on Android TV has had a particularly annoying issue. When selecting one of several app categories, including 'Action Games' and 'News,' the entire Play Store crashes. Now the issue appears to be finally fixed. Read More
CyanogenMod has been the most widely-used custom ROM for years, with at least 10 million users at one point. After Cyanogen Inc kicked the bucket, the community-maintained LineageOS continued CM's efforts.

Android Wear 2.0 is sure getting a lot of support from developers. Maybe it's the fact that the old way of installing apps on the watch (by bundling the small watch's APK file with the main phone app's APK) won't work with Wear 2.0. Maybe it's the long developer preview period that gave teams and individuals the time to update their apps. And maybe it's Google incentivizing everyone to get their apps on Wear 2.0. Who knows?! The end result is that a lot of apps over the past couple of weeks have been updated to work with Android Wear 2.0.
The latest app to join the fold is Foursquare City Guide. Read More
NVIDIA isn't letting down its guard. One month after the company brought Nougat and plenty of new features in an OTA update to its just-released SHIELD TV and a couple of weeks after it did the same for the original 2015 SHIELD TV, it's back with more updates and enhancements for these two Android TV set-top boxes.
Both the old 2015 and new 2017 SHIELD TVs are getting updated from Experience Upgrade 5.0.2 to 5.1. This new version has a few new games — Deus Ex Human Evolution, Just Cause 2, and Diluvion — and a couple of enhancements like Amazon Video's surround sound. Read More
