LG G8 in T-Mobile unlocked form is just $375 (50% off) on eBay

In the past couple of years, LG's flagship smartphones haven't really stood out from the rest. However, they are known for one thing: depreciation. Right now, you can get a brand-new, T-Mobile unlocked LG G8 for just $374.99 — half as much as T-Mobile charges. A 50% discount for a new, current-gen flagship is a pretty ridiculous deal.

[Update: Better image] Photo shows Pixel 4 in new orange "Coral" color - looks like a creamsicle

A photo on Weibo is making the rounds recently, showing off what looks like the back of the Pixel 4 in three different colors. We've already seen both the white and black versions a few times, but the photo shows off a new orange colorway which will probably end up being called "Coral," given both the text accompanying the leak and Google's documented use of the name for orange products before.

Weekend poll: Have you updated to Android 10? What do you think?

Google has finally released Android 10 after six months of beta testing. As usual, Pixels have picked up this latest version, and the Essential Phone has continued its habit of timely updates. The last wave of OnePlus flagships also picked up Android 10, but only via the Open Betas. At the time of writing, Android 10 is still something of an exclusive club — have you updated to it? How do you like it?

Google Assistant on the Pixel 4 might save you from listening to call hold music

Having to be put on hold while calling a business is annoying, and having to listen to barely-recognizable music for an extended period of time while you wait a human to become available only makes it worse. Google already teased that a next-generation Assistant would be coming to future Pixel devices, and now we know one more trick it might have taking over call holds.

Come write for Android Police — we've got jobs!

Android Police has grown a lot in the nine-plus years I've been here, and this year will mark a decade the site itself has been around. It's hard to believe where we are now compared to then, having since launched APK Mirror, completely redesigned the site, and introduced a number of new faces on the team. People I hired years ago - like Corbin, Ryne, Scott, and Richard - are still "the new guys" in my mind, even though they're all people I've come to trust intrinsically to do the work we rely on here every day. And that work isn't shrinking - it's growing, a lot.

[Update: Just India] Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 won't have NFC in some markets — that means no Google Pay

One significant detail regarding Nokia's newly-announced mid-range 6.2 and 7.2 slid under the radar yesterday, but it turns out the company's published spec sheets were in error. Although Nokia's website initially claimed the devices wouldn't get NFC in the US, Latin America, or India, those details were apparently incorrect. Only India will be missing NFC support.
