The Droid Life Show: Episode 103 – Let’s Talk S7 and G5

On today’s episode of the Droid Life Show, we’re talking LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 (S7 Edge too) for a good hour or so. These are the biggest phones of 2016 (thus far), so since we’ve spent time with them all and I’d imagine you are all considering one of the three as your next phone, we’d love to share our thoughts. Of course, reviews will arrive shortly, but pre-orders are already up for the taking.

If we wrap on those three phones, we’ll have the usual updates on general Android news and maybe even an app or two.

Join us at 1PM Pacific (4PM Eastern) for the fun.

The Droid Life Show: Episode 102

On today’s episode of the Droid Life Show, we’ll do another recap of the latest in leaks and news surrounding the upcoming flagships from Samsung, LG, and HTC. This week, we got all sorts of pictures and new details of the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, G5, and One M10 that we’d like to talk about. Things are heating up!

Once we wrap the recap, it’s onto rumors of Google getting serious about VR, Android Wear’s Marshmallow update, and more.

The Droid Life Show: Episode 101

Now that episode 100 of the Droid Life Show is out of the way, it’s time to get back to your regularly scheduled programming, which means catching up on the latest in Android news. We haven’t had a news-related show in a few weeks, so as you probably predicted, we have a lot to catch up on.

In recent weeks, we have seen the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge rumors paint a pretty vivid picture of what we can expect on February 21, plus LG confirmed the G5, and HTC leaks are finally showing up. It’ll be a packed show that you won’t want to miss.

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.

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.
