The LG G6 gets tortured by JerryRigEverything, emerges mostly unscathed

LG isn't really well known for building strong, reliable smartphones. Last year's G5 was a build quality nightmare, and even its newer phones are still bootlooping (on a completely unrelated note, check out our Nexus 5X long-term review). With the G6, though, LG incorporated a beefy metal frame, as well as some other little tweaks that make this 2017 flagship one of the more durable phones that JerryRigEverything has tested.

Quirky platformer MouseBot is Vector Unit's latest offering for the casual and hardcore alike

Vector Unit has enjoyed a pretty good reputation on Android for a good while now. Not only have they released some pretty popular titles but they have also gone out of their way to support the Android platform more than most. Things like Play Games achievements, leaderboards, and cloud saving have all been a standard for the studio since their inception. Making sure to provide HID controller and Android TV support is also a big plus for them. When you take all of this into consideration, it is no surprise that they have gone on to perform exceedingly well, and deservedly so.

Mech blasting twin-stick shooter Quantum Revenge is now available

If you are saying to yourself - "hey, I saw this game in the Roundup yesterday" - you would be correct. The thing is, I felt it was worth putting in its own post as it is a pretty enjoyable experience. To be precise, it offers solid twin-stick shooter gameplay that focuses on giant mechs in outer space. Akin to many mech-themed TV shows and movies it is pretty obvious where the game's inspiration comes from. So what do you say, shall we dive in and see all there is to enjoy?

Here's how to enable Picture-in-Picture mode in Android O right now


Last year, Android 7.0 introduced picture-in-picture (PiP) mode, making it possible to shrink a playing video down to a floating window that appears above all other content, allowing users to continue watching a video while taking care of another task.

That changed with Android O, which has brought PiP mode to Android devices with screens much smaller than a television's, including phones and tablets. However, since Android O is so new and few developers have had the time and resources to update their apps, it's hard to find any app that actually supports PiP for now.
