Don’t Miss These Android Stories: February 13, 2016

We are only a week away from pure craziness, did you realize that? I’m talking about the kick-off to MWC, of course, where Samsung and LG will go head-to-head to see who can make the next big flagship phone. Our gut tells us that both will make amazing phones, but you have to admit that it is kind of fun to see them really duke it out this year.

In the lead-up to that showdown, the leaks have begun to pour in. Because they will only continue on through next week, you should probably catch up on the latest. I say that because we may see pre-orders open up the minute these new phones are announced next week and if you want one or all of them, you might want to pull the trigger right away to take advantage of promos and freebies.

Time to see what happened this week! All of the biggest Android stories are linked below.  (more…)

I promise, though, it’ll be OK.  (more…)
