[Android Car Review] The 2015 Hyundai Sonata Is Android Auto's Debut Vehicle, And It's A Great One

Yep, you read that right: we're reviewing a car. On Android Police. I know, it's weird. But we'll get through it, together! We might even have some fun.

In all seriousness, we're going to be reviewing as many cars that come with Android Auto - or are powered by Android in some form - as we can this year. Consider it something of an experiment. I've never reviewed a car before, and I'm already rolling out the crust for my humble pie as I write this, but you've got to start somewhere, right? With that in mind, the focus of our car reviews will obviously be technology.

Quick, Rapid, Turbo, And Fast Charging Explained: What You Need To Know About Charging Your Smartphone

You've probably heard of quick charging, turbo charging, adaptive fast charging, rapid charging, and Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 before - or at least one or two of these things. What you may not know is that all of them are actually basically the same thing, based on the same licensed technology from Qualcomm known as Quick Charge.

With that basic premise in mind, what I want to dispel in this article is the notion that you need an OEM-branded charger to get the maximum charging speed out of your smartphone, because this generally isn't true. And understanding that could save you a fair bit of money, especially if your phone doesn't come with a quick charger, or you need a second one for work or travel.

Google Adds Android Phone Suggestion Tool To The Official Android Homepage

Buying an Android phone can be intimidating, what with all the options out there. Google has a new tool that might help you narrow things down a little, and it's right there on the main Android phone homepage under "Find the Android phone for you." Just answer some question and the Google machine spits out some suggestions.

ASUS ZenFone 2 Review: A Good Inexpensive Phone That Would Be Much Better With Stock Android

When you think smartphones, ASUS probably rarely comes to mind. While the company has been building Android phones for several years now, their market penetration outside of Asia has been relatively low, and so they rarely get much attention in American or European markets. But the ZenFone 2, when it launched at CES six months ago, definitely raised eyebrows.

At a starting price of just $199, ASUS is offering up a phone with extremely impressive specifications for a do-a-double-take MSRP - it almost sounds too good to be true. Thankfully, I don't think it is - the ZenFone 2 is a solid phone that works pretty much like any Android 5.0+ device you'll encounter while simultaneously blowing the doors off pretty much any competitor at this price point for raw spec sheet power.

Samsung may have backed away from microSD cards with the Galaxy S6, but other manufacturers are filling in the void. For those of you with an HTC One M9, an LG G4, or any of the other bajillion Android devices with expandable memory, Amazon is currently holding a sale on Transcend storage.

Neo Smartpen N2 Review: A Sleek, Viable Option For Making Your Notes Digital Without Ditching Pen And Paper

The Neo Smartpen N2 is the company's second shot at an intelligent analog writer and this one comes with very few compromises. In a market without a whole lot of competition, especially for those who support Android, Neo's N2 needs to be on your radar if you want a smartpen. I've been testing it out for a couple of weeks and, on the whole, I am really excited about it. With that said, it does have a few drawbacks that you will want to think through before deciding to buy.

This is the second smartpen I've reviewed for Android Police. The first is the Livescribe 3, whose review you can see here.

Android Auto (Pioneer 8100NEX) Review: A Worthwhile Convenience If Money Is No Object

It's been a year since Android Auto was announced, and it's only now starting to hit the market. You can buy a handful of cars with support for Auto (with a software update), and more vehicles are on the way. There are also some aftermarket head units that can smarten up your dumb old car. Now that it's finally reaching consumer availability, we can see how Google's car infotainment platform works.

I've had a chance to play with one of Pioneer's NEX Android Auto kits (the AVIC-8100NEX), and have already posted some initial impressions. Now let's dig in and explore this new frontier for Android.

10 Cool Android Weather Apps With Hot Material Design, Clear Simplicity, Stormy Details, Or Warm Social Elements

Weather apps. If one app category gets its own entire section in the Play Store, you should surmise that the choices are beyond wide and the selection is almost impossible. Even browsing the category is a daunting minefield of Froyo-stuck designs and mediocre data and options. So why bother with a third-party weather client, especially when Google Now has its own weather card, Android comes with a News & Weather app, and a simple Google search for the name of your city with the word weather turns up the result you're looking for?

Details for one. Weather apps can provide a breadth of information that Google's knowledge graph and cards don't have.
