The Meizu MX 4-Core is a truly interesting phone. And as an extention of that, Meizu itself is an interesting company. Founded by Jack Wong, it gained international notoriety when its M8 smartphone drew unwelcome comparisons to Apple's iPhone, particularly from Apple's lawyers, resulting in an early end to its production run.

Meizu claims to be fully vertically integrated - manufacturing, marketing, and selling its phones, a start-to-finish philosophy that results in decreased overhead and more control over its products (it should be noted that Meizu does not actually make all of the components in its phones, however).

Welcome back to the Android Police Week In Review, which is getting published slightly late this week because hey, the matinee screening of The Dark Knight Rises was cheaper. Don't forget, you can hear a lot of this over the course of an hour instead of 10 minutes in our podcast.

We've already seen the LS860 in blurrycam previously, but this latest photo of the upcoming LTE-equipped QWERTY slider headed to Sprint is a lot easier on the eyes.

According to @evleaks, the device is packing a dual-core MSM9860 Snapdragon S4 processor, so we can expect it to be pretty speedy. Android 4.0 is also present, but given LG's track record with updates, who knows if it'll ever seen 4.1. A 4" WVGA display, though, is definitely a bit of a letdown.

If you've purchased a Nexus 7, you might already be well-aware of the fact that it is literally the perfect size for a touch gaming system. What you may not know is what games are actually worth your time and, more importantly, your money. That $25 Play Store credit is probably burning a hole in your pocket, and you're just itching to figure out how to spend it. I'm going to give you the rundown on which games you should definitely be looking at - old and new.

According to a header from a sealed document unearthed by FOSSPatents, Google has requested to intervene in an ITC patent lawsuit between HTC and Nokia as co-defendant to the Taiwanese smartphone-maker. This is the first time Google has ever filed as an intervening 3rd-party in a patent lawsuit between one of its hardware partners and a competitor, so it may be the sign of a shift in strategy for the company.

The portable Bluetooth speaker is fast becoming a standard accessory in our increasingly tablet and smartphone-centric world. But with so many options out there, how do you know which one is actually the good buy? Having used several, when I saw Braven's line unveiled earlier this year, I was intrigued. Not only did they look good, Braven promised high functionality to go with that sleek form factor. What did make me a little suspicious is the fact that Braven isn't actually a new name in the business - they previously marketed their speakers as the Spar Zephyr line, and have undergone a makeover for their next generation of hardware (which looks exactly like the previous generation).

The Android Police Week In Review is back! And that shouldn't be surprising, because it's Sunday. Unless you have amnesia. Or you're just reading it for the first time. I'm going to guess the latter is probably a little more common. And whether you're an amnesiac or a first-timer, you can catch a lot of these stories on our podcast, too.

If there's one thing that sets people off upon purchasing or downloading an app (games in particular), it's opening it up and finding it has in-app purchases.

And this is, generally, a good instinct for consumers to have - hundreds, if not thousands of mobile games blatantly take advantage of people's willingness to nickel-and-dime themselves out of money they would have never otherwise spent buying a game in the first place.

The Android Police Podcast is back for another week of fun, and we've managed to limit ourselves to a mere 80 minutes this time. This week, we're talking about a lot of various things, including the Galaxy S III's US adventures, just how ugly the white EVO 4G LTE is, and something about an "Ouya."
