Android Police coverage: Operation Dracula Is A New 'Bullet Hell' Shooter From Crescent Moon Games

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.

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.

Floatify Version 10 Adds Android N-Themed Notifications And Swipe Actions

Android's notification system has gone through some pretty intense work since the start of the platform, but that doesn't mean that third-party developers can't improve it even more. Case in point: Floatify, a customization app that's been floating around (sorry) for the better part of two years. The latest version is number ten, and it adds a couple of features from the new Android N Developer Preview. If your device isn't invited to play with the Nexus crowd (or you just don't want to deal with the instability), you can back-port some of those neat touches.

[Video] Camera Shootout: Nexus 6P vs. Galaxy S7/Edge

The Nexus 6P is the first Nexus device to really impress us with its camera. It performs well in most scenarios you can throw at it, and that’s saying something considering the less-than-sterling pedigree of previous Nexus cameras. With the bad mamma jamma that is the Samsung S7/Edge on the scene, there’s a decision to be made here for some of you.

The Nexus 6P has its work cut out for it when going up against some of the best camera optics and low light performance on the market right now, but both devices do have their strong suits. When it comes to the images each spit out, I think you’ll have a harder time than you realize telling some photos apart.

[Deal Alert] TellTale's Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 1 Is Down To $0.49 On The Play Store In Several Countries

TellTale Games has made a name for itself lately with episodic story-based point-and-click adventure games, and Minecraft: Story Mode is no exception. Released in October 2015, the game uses Minecraft's signature voxel graphics along with interesting storylines, character choices, and a star-studded voice acting cast to create an engrossing adventure game that you feel compelled to finish.
