Another week down here at DL, but it was absolutely packed with Google-related news. Hangouts 5.0 started rolling out in all of its bug crushing glory, Google Play is getting a facelift, and TAG Heuer teased its Connected device with the first picture of the device we have seen.
In other news, we told Motorola they better get it together, we played with the Xperia Z5 Compact, OnePlus and HTC started teasing their upcoming events for new devices, and we now know what a Galaxy Note 5 looks like if you strip off the colored film on its backside. Spoiler alert, it’s super hot.
