Another week in the books at Droid Life. When we look back at this past week years from now, what will we remember most? Most likely, we will recall Samsung making the Galaxy Note 7 recall completely official, urging all owners to “power down and exchange immediately.” Oh yes, good times for Samsung.
On top of the Note 7 recall drama, Google apparently renamed the Nexus Launcher to Pixel Launcher (which we checked out in a video), Motorola attempted to trick a few Apple fans into thinking Apple is still awesome, and we learned that Moto, LG, and Huawei won’t be bringing any new Android Wear devices to market this year.
