This is the last episode of the second season of the Android Authority podcast. That sucks. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have tech to talk about. Adam, Joe, and Jonathan gather for one last time to talk about Motorola’s upcoming flagship, and care for your RAZR. LG is keeping the headphone jack flame a’burnin. And finally, we look back on some other operating systems that have come and gone over the years.

We take a deeper look at Bluetooth Audio LE and the LC3 codec along with Bluetooth SIG, and Huawei’s Google loophole is just delightful.

Every year, Android Authority looks to award the best smartphone released. But if you ask 50 different reviewers what the best phone of the year is, you’ll get 30 different ideas. But if you look at just the objective numbers, only one stands above the rest.  It’s a very narrow field, but there is one clear winner, and we’re looking to crown that winner. Chris Thomas, executive editor of SoundGuys, and chief product tester joins us to discuss our various categories, how they were tested, which phone won those categories, and finally, which phone won over all.

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!

Great podcast! HMD Global is really trying to bring back the former glory of the Nokia brand. Their choice to go with a clean UI in partnership with google is great. However, they keep missing out on the camera department. The camera on their Nokia phones are just not "great" and they are below the likes of iPhone, Samsung and Google pixel. When I heard the camera on the Pure View didn't perform well under low light, I was disappointed as this is a phone that has camera as its selling point yet ... 😢

I'm in full agreement with the panelist that asked why selfie cams at all? Solve the notch problem immediately. It's only a small potion of the market that uses selfies all the time.. And someone always has another phone nearby if you really want one done. Also.. Why are all these Chinese phones winning all the awards when they aren't even available to US buyers? Even if you can find a carrier to support it, it's a major pain to use them aka Chinese search results etc

Samsung is calling their screen the Infinity O Display, but I wonder what the market name will be for the rest who adopt it.

Someone saying he'd rather have his phone strapped to his head as if it was an anchor instead of charging Bluetooth headphones once every couple days was the least thing I'd expect to hear in this podcast. Wired stuff sucks.
