If you like iOS' 3D Touch launcher shortcuts, you can get the future Android 7.1 feature right now with Action Launcher. #android
Although the Google Play Store is home to a vast number of launcher replacements, Action Launcher is widely regarded as one of the best. That's because of developer Chris Lacy's tireless work in keeping the launcher up to date with the latest features, while bringing a level of polish you'd normally expect from big OEMs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zq8H6gL72Ds In a new update rolling out now, Lacy is further introducing new features inspired ...

If you're suddenly experiencing bad battery drain on the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, or Note 7, blame Oculus. Hit the jump for a fix.
Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge that is refusing to keep a solid charge? If so, you're not alone.

Samsung criticized for not offering Note 7 replacement options in China
A couple of weeks ago, the president of Samsung USA issued a video apology. It was a nice gesture, but it was only directed at customers in the US. Customers in other parts of the world didn't get the same attention.

What's your favorite speaker manufacturer? They could one day offer up Google Home inside their products.
A new rumor out of Variety claims to confirm that Google Home will not just be driven on Google's own hardware, with the company supposedly working with third-party manufacturers to get it into more products.

I have multiple Braven 710 and 600 speakers around the house and have found them great for the price. They make great desktop/garage/workshop Bluetooth speakers. The 710 speakers can be paired to give you left and right separated channels.

There were quite a few great games released in the last month. Did you miss any?
September is officially ending, and with it goes the last traces of summer. The good news is there were quite a few excellent new games last month. As the weather gets a little cooler you can stay inside and play games on your phone.

Which features do you want to see in Allo the most?
It's no secret that there's still a lot of work to be done on Allo. Google got the core of their experience off the ground, however users have been requesting additional features that could only help to enhance the service.

If Google wants this to take off it needs SMS support. Nobody wants to text me on Allo, they all said they would convert if it has SMS support... people don't want a million messaging apps and that's where were headed.

There's now a one-stop shop to get all your Google News!
It's been a nightmare trying to follow Google over the years, with the company employing 19 different blogs and tons of other avenues for announcements. Google is finally looking to change all of that.

How's making the popcorn? 
We still have a few days to go until Google's October 4th #madebygoogle rolls around, but Google has already put up the video link for the LIVE stream. With rumors suggesting that we'll see two Pixel phones, Google Home, a new router and a 4K Chromecast, there's certainly a lot to be excited about. Leave us a comment and let us know what new Google gadget you're looking forward to the most.

When sized up against the competition, the Google #PixelXL isn't THAT big...
As we quickly approach Google's big Oct. 4th event in San Francisco, new information about what Google could have in store has been leaking out almost every single day now. We already showed how big the rumored Google Pixel and Pixel XL could end up being when sized up against popular smartphones like the Nexus 6P or Galaxy S7 Edge, but that was based on screen size. Today, we have what could be solid dimensions for the Pixel XL along with a full...

+Jaz F it'll run okay with the 820 but I'm not sure this is the right iPhone competitor. Majority of iPhone users are dumb, they care about looks, and pretty colors, which this phone doesn't have...
