Paranoid Android ROM is back from the dead with Android 10 builds (Update: Even more phones with Quartz 4)

LineageOS is the most-used custom Android ROM around, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for others. Paranoid Android was a popular choice back in the KitKat days, and while the ROM returned in full force with Nougat builds in 2017, there hasn't been much news since. Now the project is back (again), touting Android 10 builds for nine phones so far.

Samsung’s crashed satellite brings down its ‘SpaceSelfie’ campaign

Marketing has led brands to far-off places, but apparently not as far as Samsung went — space. Well, technically stratosphere, but we’ll call it space to let Samsung have its feel-good moment while it lasts. The European arm of the company wanted to send a selfie to space for reasons beyond human comprehension, and a satellite lifted off last week for this purpose. In two days, it came crashing down in a family’s backyard in the US, troubling many in the locality.

LineageOS brings Pie to 13 more phones, temporarily halts all Xiaomi support

LineageOS is one of the best custom ROMs around, with official support for dozens of phones and a few unique features. The last time we covered the project, it started offering builds for the Redmi Note 7 Pro, Huawei Honor 5X, and a few others.

LineageOS ends official Nougat builds as Pie support approaches

LineageOS is one of the most popular custom ROMs available, with somewhere around two million active installations. It typically takes a while for the project to update to newer versions of Android, since development is largely done by maintainers in their spare time. Six months after the public release of Android 9 Pie, it looks like LineageOS is about ready to make the jump — but not before dropping older devices.

In that past decade, we've seen some pretty crazy Android phones enter the market - some successful, but mostly nothing more than cool design experiments. In celebration of Android's 10th birthday, we thought we'd organize a list of 10 of the weirdest Android phones of all time, sorted from oldest to newest.

Samsung isn't honoring its Galaxy S8 $200 trade-in discount for many, leaving customers frustrated

Samsung runs promotions on its phones pretty often. For the Galaxy S8 alone, we've already seen quite a few - a free Gear VR / an optional $99 bundle for pre-orders, a free "Entertainment Kit," and currently, a free $200 Visa card. However, while customers were recently guaranteed a $200 discount on the S8 in exchange for almost any phone in good condition that they sent Samsung's way as a trade-in, the company is having a hard time delivering on its promises to some.
