The 15 best tablet-optimized apps for Android

The 15 best tablet-optimized apps for Android

Google hasn't had much of an interest in Android tablets since the days of the Motorola XOOM and Android Honeycomb. As a result, most of the company's apps aren't designed with tablets in mind, and third-party applications have largely followed suit. Sure, Android tablets can technically run all Android apps, but many of them have stretched-out layouts that were intended for 6-inch screens. Some even force a portrait orientation (Google Tasks, I'm looking at you).

It can be hard to find applications with well-designed tablet interfaces, especially when the Play Store's only criteria for the "Designed for tablets" label is developers adding a large screenshot to the app listing.

The best web browsers for Android in 2020

The best web browsers for Android in 2020

Chrome is the default browser on all Android devices preloaded with the Play Store, but you've ever found yourself wondering what life is like back in the world of Firefox or lesser-known alternatives like DuckDuckGo, you're not alone. Unlike Apple, which requires all third-party browsers to use the Safari rendering engine (and doesn't allow other browsers to be the system default), Google allows any web browser with any engine to be published to the Play Store ⁠— giving Android phones and tablets more options for browsing the web than any iOS device.

In the post, we'll go over some of the best web browsers available for Android.

Seven alternative gallery apps to better manage your photos

Times have changed since the era of the $349 Nexus 5 and $499 Nexus 6P; instead, practically every flagship smartphone nowadays, Google's included, costs at least $800.

Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite and S10 Lite roundup: Release date, prices, renders, features, and more

Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite and S10 Lite roundup: Release date, prices, renders, features, and more

The last few years have seen Samsung (and other) flagships inch closer to the $1000 mark, virtually vacating the $600-700 segment where devices like the OnePlus 7 Pro and iPhone XR mushroomed.

Rumors say that the South Korean tech giant could be working on a pair of Lite models — the Galaxy Note10 Lite and the S10 Lite — that will possibly strike the right balance between premium features and affordability.
