031: A Smart Styl-ish

Just days after returning from IFA, Josh gets together with Jonathan Feist and Joe Hindy to talk about the past week's news - but they are also joined by Nirave Gondhia, who got off a long and arduous journey from Berlin to London and finally to Las Vegas to make it for CTIA 2015. Before getting into his memories of IFA and how CITA was going, Josh brings up an exciting new mobile Pokemon game and the guys realize just how old (or young) they truly are. Nirave ponders a possible gambling addiction and then it is on to Apple and the Pencil, which the guys aren't completely convinced by.

Project Fi | The Friday Debate Podcast 014 | Android Authority

The gang gets together, catches up on the week's personal happenings, and then gets talking about Project Fi. For those who don't know, Project Fi is a new wireless service (basically a MVNO) by Google that focuses on the ability to move from mobile networks and Wi-Fi hotspots on the fly, as well as some simpler pricing for talk, text, and data. The functionality to switch among networks is only found on the Nexus 6, currently, however, but the gang talks about future possibilities. Project Fi is certainly an anticipated move from Google, but are we really happy with the details that have thus far come to light? Find out on the FDP!

Google Pixel 4 Podcast Review: It’s so Google

The Google Pixel 4 is a fairly controversial phone. It’s got so much great going for it, but it also falls short in a few key areas. Our review calls it the “but” phone, because it has an amazing camera, but it lacks an ultrawide lens. It has remarkable performance, but the battery life is not great. It’s really good, but here’s a reason why it’s not so great. We have both reviewers of the phone - Kris Carlon and David Imel to talk about the Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL!
