Pixel 2 XL undergoes JerryRigEverything testing, fares better than Pixel 2

Google's Pixel 2 and 2 XL have a lot in common, but they aren't just larger and smaller versions of the same hardware like last year. Thus, fans of JerryRigEverything have been calling for a followup test after the Pixel 2 narrowly averted complete failure in the recent stress test. Well, here it is: the Pixel 2 XL has met the blade, the flame, and the bend. It went better this time.

Nokia 8 gets Android 8.0 Oreo, update for Nokia 6 and 5 coming soon

One of the ways Nokia (or rather, HMD Global) is trying to differentiate itself is with quick Android updates. Android 8.0 Oreo, being the first major update since Nokia started releasing its phones, is the first major test of this claim. Now, about three months after it started rolling out to Google devices, the Nokia 8 is receiving its Oreo update.

[Update: Winners] Win one of three unlocked Moto X4s from Ting and Android Police [US]

The Moto X4 is one of the company's latest midrange phones and an immensely capable device. It isn't a flagship, but it's a bit above your standard mid-range expectations. Granted, the $400 cost to grab one makes that abundantly clear, and that price is one of the few drawbacks. Thankfully for you, we've teamed up with Ting, the smarter choice for phone service, to give our readers a chance to win one of three Moto X4s.

TicHome Mini review: A worthy portable Google Home Mini alternative, as long as you don’t mind paying double

Google introduced the Assistant SDK back in April, making it possible for third parties to build the digital companion into their devices. Sure enough, at IFA 2017 in Berlin back in August, the first Google Assistant-enabled speakers were announced, due to hit the market this fall. There are now several different options from a range of manufacturers, and they cover various use cases and price points.

Other Google Home alternatives with better speakers have also been announced by the likes of Sony and Panasonic. For those on a tighter budget there’s also the Zolo Mojo from Anker. And before that has even gone on sale, Google itself launched the Google Home Mini.

[Deal Alert] Get $25 to $100 off Sonos speakers, including the new One voice-controlled model

Cracks fingers. Alright, here we go again, another deal, another post. You can do it, Rita.

Look, I know most of you are just about done with Black Friday, but we do what we do because there are always a few persons who are interested in this deal, as opposed to that deal which others found more appealing. We're here for all. But it's tough to make these posts interesting, especially when the discount is relatively so tiny. Then I remember that Sonos nearly never discounts anything and when it does, it's just as abysmal as the deals today, so here goes...

FCC adopts new rules allowing carriers to "proactively block illegal robocalls"

In what is likely a smokescreen intended to distract from the FCC planning a vote to destroy net neutrality, the FCC has issued additional rules which permit telecoms to block robocalls, specifically those which use Caller ID spoofing to impersonate phone numbers that do not exist, are not allocated by telecoms to subscribers, or are inbound-only phone numbers— in other words, allocated to systems which are unable to make outgoing calls.

[Deal Alert] Fitbit Charge 2, Alta HR, and Blaze are all $50 off

I'm the resident Fitbit fan at Android Police - I had the One for more than 3 years before I switched on to the Flex 2 and Alta HR for the past year. I love the automatic tracking and the nerd in me appreciates all the stats and graphs about my habits. I also enjoy the community around it. For me, the idea behind activity trackers isn't that they will make you more active - that's the mistake everyone makes and why many give up on their trackers after using them a while - but it's that they will help you if you already made the decision to be more active.

[Deal Alert] Roku's new Streaming Stick+ with 4K is down to $49.99 ($20 off)

I only have one TV at home and I made my decision and went with an NVIDIA SHIELD TV. But if you're still wondering about ways to bring some streaming and smart capabilities to your TV for cheap, you have many options nowadays ranging from the Chromecast to the Amazon Fire Stick and the Roku devices. The latter are often praised for their integration with many streaming services (including Amazon Prime Video and Google Play Movies, how 'bout that?) and for their simple interface and private listening mode.

If that floats your boat, and you're not lured by the Chromecast or you're gifting a relative who wants a real interface on their TV and a remote, then the new Roku Streaming Stick+ with 4K support should be right up your alley, especially with its $20 discount to $49.99.
