[Weekend Poll] How Many Android Smartphones Have You Owned?

Android's been around in the consumer market nearly a full 7 years now. That's actually quite a while when you really think about it, isn't it? Android may be young compared to, say, Windows, but going back to the way things were 7 years ago would be quite a shock. Android has come a long way since then.

So, we're curious: how many Android phones have you owned, in total?

[Deal Alert] Buy A Brand Spanking New Unlocked AT&T LG G Flex 2 On eBay For $250 ($40 Less Than It Was Last Time)

Pretty good, fairly decent, and not bad are all phrases that can be used to describe the LG G Flex 2. The younger, more curvaceous cousin of the LG G3 has respectable specs and a body curved like a banana that you either think is awesome or pointless and stupid. Speaking of stupid, the price when it launched was an insane $709 on AT$T (that ain't no typo) and apparently everyone agreed that price was obscene because they keep popping up brand new on ebay for a whole lot less.

This time you can pick one up for $250. It's the silver 32GB model with a 13MP camera, a 5.5 inch 1080x1920 display, and a Snapdragon 810 processor (I told you it was a hot deal).

[Update: Added r15 - r18] AOSP Developer Changelog Posted For v5.1.1_r3 (LMY48B) To v5.1.1_r14 (LMY48M)

T-Mobile began rolling out security-centric updates to Nexus devices yesterday. As we already know, there aren't any big changes due out in this release, but Google has pushed the latest code up to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) for the world to see. As usual, we've put together a changelog for easy reading.

Updates for T-Mobile devices are built from a dedicated branch in AOSP with custom code to support the Wi-Fi calling feature. As it turns out, the list of changes for this update to LMY48M closely resembles the r6 to r9 update from last month, otherwise known as the update that (mostly) fixed Stagefright.

Latest Marshmallow Dev Preview Introduces A Streamlined Volume Animation

One of the greatest problems in stock Android since the debut of Lollipop last year has been the volume slider - putting aside Lollipop's initially confusing volume modes, the slider unceremoniously pops into place when the user hits the volume keys on their device. Of course I'm kidding, but nevertheless it looks like Google has enhanced the volume controls in the latest Marshmallow dev preview with some motion design love.

Now, when users hit a volume key, the panel slides into place from off canvas. The slider's current position is highlighted with its own translucent halo (which may or may not really be necessary).
