The Droid Life Show: Episode 56

Ready for episode 56 of the Droid Life Show? We don’t have a ton of topics on hand for the evening, but there are a couple really important ones. First of all, Tim and I have spent the last two weeks with the Galaxy S5, so we’ll have plenty of thoughts to share while we finish up that review. The OnePlus One is also now official, with an insanely low price tag, but no real way to purchase one. We will take reader Q&A as well, plus run through some of our favorite apps of the moment.

We’ll be live at 5:00PM Pacific (8:00PM Eastern). Join us live through the embeds below! (more…)

The Droid Life Show Episode 55 Will Replace Tiger Woods at the Masters This Weekend

This past Wednesday night, the DL crew met up for Episode 55 of The Droid Life Show. We chatted about the impending launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 (which is now available globally), how it compares to the HTC One (M8), gave our final opinions of the M8 (since we posted our review), and discussed Facebook’s interesting move to remove all messaging features out of the main Facebook app.

We had enough time to also do a quick viewer Q&A session, and of course, talked about our favorite apps and games from the past week. It was a full show, so be sure to catch up on it if you missed anything.  (more…)

The Droid Life Show: Episode 55

The DL crew is back again this evening, at its usual time and place of 6pm PST, for Episode 55 of The Droid Life Show. On the schedule for tonight’s show is taLK of the impending release of the Galaxy S5 from Samsung. Is this the phone you have been waiting for? Should you buy it over HTC’s One (M8)? These are the things we will ask.

If flagship devices aren’t something you care too much about, then don’t worry, as discussion will also focus around Facebook’s recent announcement of removing all messaging features out of the official Facebook app, forcing users to download Messenger to handle any IM’ing needs.

To top it off, we will cover Mailbox’s release to Android, continue to roll on the floor laughing about the poor YouTuber who smashed his Galaxy S5 with a hammer, and will also take the time to answer any viewer questions that get submitted at the time of the show. And don’t worry, we will also talk apps and games, as I have quite the little list for tonight’s show.

We’ll be live at 6:00PM Pacific (9:00PM Eastern). Join us live through the embeds below!

The Droid Life Show Episode 54 is Batting Cleanup This Weekend

Baseball is back, baby! Ah, I love this time of year. It appears that my San Francisco Giants are laying waste to the Dodgers this afternoon, so all is well in the world. Anyway, let’s get back to Android. This past Wednesday night, as we do most other Wednesday nights, we held Episode 54 of The Droid Life Show.

On this week’s show, we talked heavily about the new HTC One (M8), concluding that the device is pretty good, but does fall short in a few categories. On top of the M8, we went over Amazon’s release of the Fire TV, Google I/O registration, made time for viewer-submitted questions, and went over our top apps of the week.

It was the most joyous of occasions.  (more…)

The Droid Life Show: Episode 54

Due to traveling and other miscellaneous issues, we were unable to bring you an episode dedicated entirely to the HTC One (M8) last week. With that said, you can expect there to be plenty of discussion tonight regarding HTC’s latest flagship smartphone. But don’t worry, we won’t only be talking about the M8.

In store for tonight, the DL crew will be talking about Amazon’s new Fire TV set-top box, our favorite April Fools’ Day gags from around the web, a report claiming Google is to release a standalone Camera app to Google Play, and we will also try for a Q&A session as well. As always, it is sure to be a really good time.

The Droid Life Show Episode 53 Just Upset Duke to Take You Into the Weekend

If you missed episode 53 of the Droid Life Show this week, shame on you. You missed the first show with five DL team members, plus our focus was on Android Wear and the gorgeous Moto 360. In fact, a solid 45 minutes was dedicated to Google’s new Android wearables platform. We not only covered the 360, but the LG G Watch, our thoughts on the UI, and if we really think this could be the wearable breakthrough we needed to finally buy into the category.  (more…)

The Droid Life Show: Episode 53

Want to take a guess as to what we’ll be talking about on tonight’s episode of the Droid Life Show? If you said, “Android Wear,” then you are correct. Google surprised us all yesterday with an unveiling of its new wearables platform that has already given us products to drool over from partners. We’ll decide if Google has figured out a correct smartwatch UI and also share thoughts on the Moto 360 and LG G Watch.

After we finish up with Android Wear, it’s on to immediate availability of the HTC One following its press event, new QHD devices making rounds, our favorite apps and games of the moment, plus more. It should be another hefty show.

The Droid Life Show Episode 52 Will Help With Your St. Patrick’s Day Prep Work

On Wednesday night, the crew united as they always do (sans Tato), to bring the world Episode 52 of The Droid Life Show. In this episode, the topics covered include all of the crazy leaks we have seen surrounding the HTC One (2014), the rumors and specs posted for the LG-made Nexus smartwatch from Google, AT&T’s lighting up of LTE-A here in the US, and the possibility of Google bringing its own set-top box to the living room.

It was quite the eventful show indeed.  (more…)
