That new Google Maps update is pretty cool, but there's more going on than the return of terrain mode. In fact, there are two small, but crazy-useful features in the new Maps that you ought to know about.

You might remember the Oppo N1 as the first official CyanogenMod phone, which was quickly eclipsed by the OnePlus One. It was a very big phone (physically, not popularity-wise), but now the Chinese OEM is announcing a smaller version called, you guessed it, the N1 Mini. The thing is, the mini version of the N1 still has a 5-inch screen.

Banking apps aren't terribly exciting in general. In fact, they're usually awful, buggy apps that make you hate yourself. The Bank of America app has gone through a few iterations (most of them bad), but the newest update is actually a solid improvement.

Your phone does not have four spinning rotor blades that allow it to fly around and shoot 720p video, but the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 does those things as an extension of your phone. This gizmo costs a pretty penny, but the price has dropped considerably on Amazon. It's just $$236.87 with Prime shipping for the standard version, and $249.99 for the elite edition.

You still can't really buy one even if you've got money to burn, but the OnePlus One has official support for TWRP now. So at least there's that. In case you were wondering, the device codename is bacon. Obviously.

Samsung leaves no phone behind. Well okay, it does, but not all the time. I mean, certainly not a flagship device... usually. At any rate, the Galaxy Note II on Sprint is getting bumped up to Android 4.4 as we speak. Isn't that nice?

When Google released its new camera app, it took the now common approach of revamping the UI and removing a number of features in the process. Little by little, those things will come back (just like with Maps), and that's the theme of today's v2.2 Google Camera update.

If you're tired of the usual Samsung and Nexus deals, perhaps this one will be of interest. Sony's new flagship, the Xperia Z2, is on eBay Daily Deals for the somewhat reasonable price of $599.99 with free shipping in the US.

You know the drill by now. HTC has been pushing through the Sense 6 update to the old HTC One on US carriers, and now Verizon has given it the all clear. That means Big Red's M7 is getting the OTA update with Sense 6 starting today.
