The Moto Z4 is receiving Android 10 (Update: Verizon)

Ever since Google sold Motorola to Lenovo, the brand's update strategy hasn't been the same. The original Moto X used to receive the Android 4.x updates almost as fast as the Nexus devices, but Lenovo seems to have different priorities. As such, the Moto Z4 is receiving Android 10 only now, half a year after it was first released to Google's Pixel lineup.

Huawei is largely cut off from working with Google, thanks to trade sanctions imposed by the U.S. government over alleged spying.

LineageOS ROM releases first builds based on Android 10 (Update: Builds are back)

LineageOS is the most popular custom ROM in existence, and the project prides itself on bringing newer versions of Android to unsupported devices. However, Lineage has been a bit slow to roll out a version based on Android 10 ⁠— the Pie-based ROM was already available by this time last year. Thankfully, the next major version of LineageOS seems to be just around the corner.

OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro get better RAM management and improved slow-mo videos in OxygenOS 10.0.5

OnePlus is usually praised as a manufacturer that updates its devices sooner rather than later, but our data shows that that isn't necessarily the case for the OnePlus 7 Pro. It missed quite a few security patches in the course of the last year. The latest release continues this trend: While OnePlus 7 Pro and 7 have just received an update to OxygenOS 10.0.5 (or 10.3.2 in India), they've only gotten the March security patches, not the ones from April.

Samsung promises 50% cash back if you return your Galaxy S20 within 2 years

Samsung is reportedly disappointed with S20 sales, and that has manifested as a new "buy-back" program available to buyers of the Galaxy S20 series. If you pick up a Galaxy S20, Samsung promises to buy it back for 50% of the full retail price if you send it back within two years. That could mean hundreds of dollars for a phone that's on its last legs in 23 months and 29 days.

Android was born on this weird old prototype phone, but you'd never recognize it

You'd be forgiven if you don't remember the name "Sooner," which was what Google called one of its earliest Android hardware prototypes, predating even the HTC G1/Dream. It looked more like an old Blackberry than a modern smartphone and ran a very early version of the Android operating system. We managed to get our hands on one, and, in true Android Police fashion, I gave it a try. After a few days using the Sooner as my personal phone (immediately following the Galaxy S20 Ultra), it's incredible seeing how far Android has come.
