Android Auto is pretty cool, but the requirement of an expensive headunit for your car (or a new car that shipped with Android Auto support) set the barrier of entry pretty high. Thankfully, Google added the ability to use the Android Auto interface on your phone last year. Still, if you want the full Android Auto experience, a compatible Sony head unit is currently $398 ($100 off) from select sites.

Some Google Photos users are getting a new sharing UI with photo selection and a button for sharing to family groups

Sharing photos with friends and family is one of the best social things you can do with your phone, so it only makes sense that it should be as seamless as possible. Google has been putting a lot of work into the sharing experience in its Photos for the last year, and the latest evolution of the interface just started appearing for some users today. If you try sharing one or more photos, you may be greeted by a new screen with a carousel-like photo picker.

A recent study suggests that your phone might have a negative impact on your cognitive ability

Take this with a grain of salt, but a recent study has found that your phone might not be the best influence on you. At least, when you need to focus or remember things. In a paper published in the Journal of the Association for Consumer Research, authors Adrian F. Ward, Kristen Duke, Ayelet Gneezy, and Maarten W. Bos disclosed the results of a study they performed. They posit that their results demonstrate a reduction in available cognitive capacity of individuals when a phone is present and that this effect increases the more dependent one is on their phone.

[Playing With Fire] Samsung will reportedly release the Galaxy Note 7 'Fandom Edition' in South Korea on July 7th

Samsung took a big hit last year when the well-reviewed Galaxy Note 7 showed a propensity to burst into flames. Samsung eventually had to recall millions of units and cancel the device entirely.

Samsung is far from the best company when it comes to product names (remember the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch?). In a similar vein, there are actually two tablets called the Galaxy Tab S2 - one released in 2015 with an Exynos processor, and another in 2016 with a Snapdragon chip. Verizon's Snapdragon model already received an Android 7.0 update, and now it's the Exynos model's turn.

ZenFone 3 Zoom updated to Nougat with less bloat, improved UI, Google Feed on home screen, and more

The Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom came out a few months back, packing a giant battery and dual camera array. However, it was also equipped with Android 6.0.1, which is unacceptable as we get on toward the middle of 2017. I guess Asus got the memo, and it's now rolling Android 7.1.1 out to the ZenFone 3 Zoom. Not only does it bring the usual Nougat goodies, this update addresses some of the problems with ZenUI.

Amazon is now selling the unlocked LG G6 for a mere $549.99, matching a previous deal at B&H. The GS8 is a lot more spendy.

ChromeOS will eventually have an automatic red-tinted Night Light mode

ChromeOS development is on fire these days. Just yesterday we got news that we'd have a new setting for closing the lid on a Chromebook. And today we find out that a new automatic Night Light feature is inbound and has just entered the Canary channel. If you've ever used Kindle's Blue Shade, f.lux, or LineageOS' LiveDisplay feature, then you know that this means. If you aren't familiar with any of those, think a red-tinted mode for use at night.
