Google Announces Voice Access Beta—Control Your Phone Completely By Voice

It was almost a year ago that Google posted the session list for I/O 2015 with an interesting "voice access" talk. That was eventually removed from the schedule and we didn't hear anything about it in Android M. Now, Google has announced Voice Actions as a beta in the Play Store (Android 5.0 and higher). Once you join up, you can install the app and literally control your entire phone by voice. It's incredibly cool.

LG's G5 B&O Hi-Fi DAC: Thoughts From An Audiophile Skeptic

Hi. It's not often I put on my "audiophile skeptic" hat here at Android Police, but, well, I felt compelled today. As you may be aware, LG has a phone called the G5. That phone has an accessory called the Hi-Fi DAC, which is a little black box with a B&O logo on it. I've used the B&O Hi-Fi DAC with our compatible pre-production G5 (this does not affect the "quality" of the DAC). It is, in short, exactly what I expected.

I was not necessarily expecting quite the... loving embrace that I've seen some critics give it. While the G5 itself has seen fairly mixed reviews, the Hi-Fi DAC seems to be getting a pass as the highly-desirable one of two chin modules LG has launched with its new smartphone.

Quote, From The Developer Of Fenix, Is A Slick News Reader For Feedly And Inoreader

I've made Fenix my go-to Twitter client for a rather long time, and I'm not alone in that. That's the only app developer mvilla has released... until now. The second app from this dev is a feed reader with support for both Feedly and Inoreader. It has a very clean, minimalist design, and you can give it a shot for free.

HTC is going to get up on stage tomorrow to announce the HTC 10 knowing that we've all seen it from every possible angle. It must be weird to have a phone so thoroughly leaked before announcement, but it's not over yet. There's another leak, this time an official promo video.

[Deal Alert] Lexar Has MicroSD Cards And Other Flash Memory Marked Down On Amazon

You can buy a phone with a bunch of built-in storage, but you could save money going with microSD cards. You could save even more money waiting for sales.

Oppomart's Bogus OnePlus 3 Listing Is Not To Be Trusted, And History Makes It Obvious Why

Third-party retailers are a tempting source of information for upcoming product specifications. My theory on this is as follows: until historically recently, retail has been comprised largely of brick-and-mortar stores. In advance of major product launches and marketing initiatives, those stores often received information, media, and technical details about products weeks or even months ahead of time so as to be ready when said product became available. This is because things needed to be designed, printed, and distributed to physical locations in advance. This made retail leaks - such as weekly mailers or magazine advertisements - fairly reliable.

But in more recent years, the internet has largely obviated this system.

Sygic Makes Paid Dashcam And Head-Up Display Add-Ons Free To All Premium Users, Includes Speed Camera For Basic Users

Sygic is one of the most well known mapping software providers especially in car dashboards. And thanks to detailed TomTom maps, offline maps access, extensive POI databases, and some more features available in its app, it's also a viable option on your Android phone. The free tier only gets you this far though, it's the Premium option that enables turn-by-turn navigation, speed limit warnings, lane guidance, and more. However, even if you had paid for the Premium license, you still didn't have access to the Dashcam and Head-up Display features.

Those were paid add-ons (on top of your paid Premium license), but that changes today.
