Welcome back to the Android Police Week In Review, which is getting published slightly late this week because hey, the matinee screening of The Dark Knight Rises was cheaper. Don't forget, you can hear a lot of this over the course of an hour instead of 10 minutes in our podcast.

If you've purchased a Nexus 7, you might already be well-aware of the fact that it is literally the perfect size for a touch gaming system. What you may not know is what games are actually worth your time and, more importantly, your money. That $25 Play Store credit is probably burning a hole in your pocket, and you're just itching to figure out how to spend it. I'm going to give you the rundown on which games you should definitely be looking at - old and new.

Google recently decided to make my life a lot easier by releasing the changelog for Jelly Bean. Cool!

While, of course, I take issue with its thoroughness, it also wasn't all that accurate when it was first published. It's since been corrected, but the internet never forgets. Check out this Google listing:

Untitled-3

Yeah... There isn't actually a ringtone editor in Jelly Bean. Google seems to agree, because, after the initial posting, the mention of the editor was completely removed from the changelog.

The Android Police Week In Review is back! And that shouldn't be surprising, because it's Sunday. Unless you have amnesia. Or you're just reading it for the first time. I'm going to guess the latter is probably a little more common. And whether you're an amnesiac or a first-timer, you can catch a lot of these stories on our podcast, too.

Welcome back to GTKA, everyone's favorite investigative series where we learn all about the newest version of Android (with a heavy emphasis on "all"). The previous two episodes, if you didn't catch them, are here and here.

Today we'll be doing something a little different and looking at something near and dear to everyone's hearts: performance. Jelly Bean is crazy fast. Slap it on a Galaxy Nexus and it'll feel like a brand new phone.

A week ago, I posted a head-to-head comparison/buyer's guide of the Asus Transformer Pad (TF300), Transformer Prime (TF201), and Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700). The most upvoted comment: how is the internal storage performance? So I sat down to benchmark 6 devices.... and with the help of the team, ended up benchmarking 11:

  • HTC One S (S4)
  • HTC One X (T3)
  • Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Android 4.1 - Jelly Bean)
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Android 4.0.4 - Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • Samsung Galaxy S III (S4)
  • Asus Transformer Pad (TF300)
  • Asus Transformer Prime (TF201)
  • Asus Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700)
  • Nexus 7 (Android 4.1 - Jelly Bean)
  • Toshiba Excite 7.7

The Tests

At Mekerz86's suggestion, we used both RL Benchmark and AndroBench, both available for free on the Play Store.
