We’re still waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S8 to be announced, as you are well aware, but this week was packed again full of big Android stories. For one, we picked up an HTC U Ultra and have started fully testing it in preparation for a review. I told you how badly I miss the Moto Z Play and may have impulsed purchased one. We also got Android O rumors, Nest rumors, and gigabit testing by Sprint.
It was a solid week of Android news! Be sure to catch up.
