The Droid Life Show: Episode 100

Today is the day! After putting it off for what seems like a solid couple of months, we are finally sitting down for the official episode 100 of the Droid Life Show. It might have taken us a good 3 or so years to get here, but we made it and sometimes, that’s all that matters…or something.

On today’s episode, we probably won’t talk much about current affairs. While the Galaxy S7 and G5 are around the corner and quite exciting, we thought we would instead use episode 100 to reminisce a bit about Android and the past 6+ years of Droid Life’s existence. Seriously, we’ve been around for that long! The show will feature Tim and I, along with Ron (probably for the last time). We’ll talk about our favorite Android phones and moments or OS updates, random travel memories, and more.

Along with the show, we are celebrating the occasion with some giveaways as well. How does a gold Nexus 6P sound? Yep, you could win one of those. We also have a few hundred dollars in Google Play credits to hand out too. Exciting, right? To enter to win, we’ll update this post right around show time with Rafflecopter widgets that will give you instructions.

Join us at 2PM Pacific (5PM Eastern) for the fun.

The Droid Life Show: Late as Hell CES 2016 Recap

Since CES was last week, and we almost always have a blast that needs to be shared, we figured even if this is about 5 days late, it’s time for a CES recap show from Tim and I. Look, we know that CES is 99.9% boring from an Android standpoint these days, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other tech stories to share, our personal experience stories to share, and all that jazz.

Today, we’re doing our special CES 2016 show where we’ll talk about Binge On drama (it started at CES!), Motorola branding news, all the VR happenings (because we tried a lot of it), the new wave of smartwatches, what we did for our annual CES dinner, if we ran into any random celebrities (sorry, no Dennis Rodman this year), and more.

Join us at 1PM Pacific (4PM Eastern) for the fun. And no, this doesn’t count as episode 100.

The Droid Life Show: Episode 99

The year is coming to end, but we’re also closing in on episode 100 of the Droid Life Show. Oh, how far we have come. This isn’t 100, though, it’s 99 and there is plenty to talk about before we kick off some sort of celebration.

On this show, we’ll catch up on the last few weeks of Android stories, like the Pixel C, Moto 360 Sport, Google Play Music Family Plan, Android 6.0.1 (and emoji!), and our TAG Heuer Connected review. We’ll also just be around to chat about general fun, because it’s been a while since we got on air.

We will kick the show off live at 10:30AM Pacific (1:30PM Eastern). We have a live video embedded below, along with an IRC chat, so you can kick it with us during the show.

The Droid Life Show: Episode 98

After a couple of week break, we return for episode 98 of the DL Show, where we’ll catch up on the past couple of weeks of fun. We need to talk about our reviews of the Turbo 2, Maxx 2, and LG V10. We also have the TAG watch in house, a Blackberry Priv review on the way, and more, including our best phone you can buy today.

On a related note, we are ditching Google+ for shows, because well, Google+ changed this week and has basically made it impossible for us to use it any longer. We are now going with YouTube streaming through our main channel, which is actually the best solution anyway. Sorry if there is confusion here. Hopefully, your experience with the show won’t actually change at all.

We will kick the show off live at 1:00PM Pacific (4:00PM Eastern). We have a live video embedded below, along with an IRC chat, so you can kick it with us during the show.

The Droid Life Show: Episode 97

On this episode of the Droid Life Show, we have two major topics before getting into a couple of new phones. Those two topics happen to be our Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X reviews, since we finally finished and posted them moments ago. We’ll share thoughts on which we like the best, if we would recommend one or the other, and if one (hint, hint) may even qualify as phone of the year.

After that, well, we’ll dive into our first impressions of Motorola and Verizon’s new phones, the DROID Turbo 2 and MAXX 2, the HTC One A9, and the OnePlus X. We have spent time with them all and will have reviews up soon.

We will kick the show off live at 1:00PM Pacific (4:00PM Eastern). We have a live video embedded below, along with an IRC chat, so you can kick it with us during the show.

The Droid Life Show: Episode 96 (Nexus Special)

Today at 1PM Pacific (4PM Eastern), we are hosting a special Monday edition of The Droid Life Show. Why? Well, we have Nexus devices to talk about! Kellen and I have been using the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P over the weekend, and we want to share our experiences so far with Google’s latest flagship devices.

We also hosted a Q&A post earlier today, and we will be answering your Nexus questions live this afternoon. Get your questions in if you have yet to do so.

We will kick the show off live at 1:00PM Pacific (4:00PM Eastern). We have a live video embedded below, along with an IRC chat, so you can kick it with us during the show.  (more…)

The Droid Life Show: Episode 95

This afternoon, Episode 95 of the Droid Life Show shall take place, and boy, do we have a lot to talk about. It was Nexus week, meaning we will go over our thoughts on all of Google’s new offerings, and Kellen will provide his opinion on each device (since he spent some good time with them).

We’ll also cover the announcement of LG’s new V10 smartphone, Kellen will go over his final take on the Moto 360 (2nd Gen), we will share our thoughts on the Gear S2 that we have in-house, and we will announce the start of a GoFundMe campaign in an attempt to afford TAG’s upcoming Android Wear smartwatch.

The Droid Life Show: Episode 94

On today’s episode of the Droid Life Show, you can probably guess what we’re talking about. Yep, it’s the Nexus preview show. Since, Google is hosting an event next Tuesday in San Francisco that we are all assuming is going to be a showcase for two new Nexus phones and a new Chromecast, we want to catch you up on the latest leaks, rumors, and official news.

If we have time outside of all of that, we’ll talk about the new Moto 360, Blackberry’s confirmation of the Priv, and any other hot topics.

We will kick the show off live at 12:00PM Pacific (3:00PM Eastern). We have a live video embedded below, along with an IRC chat, so you can kick it with us during the show.
