It would appear that mobile games with high refresh rates are becoming more and more popular now that there's a slew of Android devices out there that support 90-120fps. For the uninitiated, the higher the refresh rate for a game, the better it looks in action, which is why gamers are often concerned with refresh rates. Of course, it's difficult to keep track of the many phones that support high framerates, so in this roundup, I'll first go into the devices available and which ones stand above the crowd. Then I'll list out some of the standout games that support high frame rates, and after that, you'll find a full list of supported Android games. Read More
A phone can be among the most expensive purchases in a given year, so it's good to pick one up on sale or at a discount, and Prime Day is the perfect time to snag one. From Pixels to Galaxy phones, and the substantially discounted Nokia 9 PureView and LG G8, now is the time to pick one up, so here's a list of phones discounted this Prime Day. Read More
It's been four years since I shared with you all the gadgets and quirky things that I own and love in my previous What We Use post. In the time since, a lot has changed in my personal life. I met the most awesome, weird, and pun-loving man. We got married, moved into an apartment of our own, and started traveling a little more frequently.
But a lot is still the same. I still pull double work duties: I own and manage my pharmacy, and I work here at Android Police, obviously. In between selling drugs and counseling patients, I sit back at my desk, clean up hundreds of emails a day, write a few posts, virtually shout at the entire team if they miss an Oxford comma, and come up with silly or inappropriate jokes.

Prime Day is in full swing, but it can be hard to keep track of all the different sales happening. Even a few third-party retailers seem to be trying to divert a bit of that attention to themselves with their own promotions. To make things a bit easier for our readers, we're keeping track of all the stuff that we spot together in one place, right here. Read More
The 2018 Mobile World Congress ended just last week, and over the course of the week-ish of announcements, there was a lot of news to cover. Just in case you happened to miss any, we've put together a quick little list of all the things we wrote about from MWC this year, plus a few things we saw that didn't merit their own post, all mixed in with a big gallery of photos.
Consider this your yearly dose of MWC-substitute. I promise it tastes as good as the real thing. Read More
At I/O this year, Google promised support for the Korean language would be coming by the end of the year to Assistant. Then at the October Pixel event a couple of weeks ago, Google also stated that Actions on Google (third-party Assistant integrations from different services) now support Korean. Between then and now, it appears that support for the Korean language has gone live on Assistant.
Google's help pages now say that you can talk to Assistant in Korean on your phone, your Wear watch (which makes sense since it's connected to your phone), and that developers can add it in their Actions on Google apps. Read More
The 30-hour event known as Prime Day has officially kicked off, and we have a list of ten Android phones, tablets, and Chromebooks that will be included at different times during the sale. For the uninitiated, the sales on Prime Day are staggered, the better to consistently pull your attention throughout the day. So most of the items that will be included haven't yet gone on sale. But, worry not, as with this list you'll be prepared. Read More
I consider myself quite lucky to be able to make a living writing things on the internet because it gives me an outlet for my natural geekery. Even if I had never started crafting snarky blog posts on a daily basis, I suspect many of the things on this list would still be in my office (I guess then I'd call it something else). However, in this version of reality, I'm a professional nerd, and these are the things that I use every day. Read More
Now is the time of year when retailers start to drop prices in an effort to stimulate your innate shopping instincts. Only by keeping a close eye on the ebb and flow of deals can you beat your fellow man to the best stuff at the best price. We're here to aggregate all the deals in one place so you can plan ahead. We'll try to keep this post updated throughout the coming days as Black Friday sales heat up.

Just answer some question and the Google machine spits out some suggestions.
