Give these a look and then take a minute to tell us all about the apps you are using and love so we can give them a try. We all find some of our favorites right in the comments on these posts!

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs. HTC One M9: Android Central editor roundtable

The editors here at Android Central weigh in on the latest flagships from Samsung and HTC.

While we’ve fully reviewed both the Galaxy S6 and One M9, and even gone back around for second opinions, we’re always interested in having a little discussion amongst ourselves about how leading devices stack up against each other.

Since we’ve been using both the Galaxy S6 and One M9 heavily the past month, we wanted to sit down with a slightly informal roundtable to get our feelings about how these devices compare.

Getting started with Android Auto

Android is everywhere. In your pocket. On your wrist. Occasionally (and unfortunately) on your face. In your living room. Even in your kitchen. And now Android is in your car. In 2014 Google announced Android Auto. And in 2015 it’s become a reality.

Android Auto

Android Auto is devilishly simple. You plug your phone into a compatible receiver — either the infotainment system that comes with your car, or an aftermarket head unit — with the same sort of cable you use to charge. Your phone — and the apps you already have — then push information to the large display that’s in your car. No more horrible user interface. So many new features, all with one goal at hand — keeping your phone out of your hand, and you safer behind the wheel.

We get that you might be a little wary of using a smartphone — a tool that by definition is distracting — in the car. But Google’s done a great job even in its first iteration. So let’s walk through the basics of Android Auto, and what you can expect when using it.

From the Editor’s Desk: Knowing everything and nothing at all …

At some point in the final days leading up to the launch of the LG G4, you’ll read words that read something to the effect of “Well, we pretty much know everything there is to know about this phone …” It certainly won’t be the first time such a line has been belched into a keyboard, nor will it be the last. (And I’m pretty sure you could search our fair site and find one of us — quite possibly a younger, greener Phil — committing the same sin.)

What it’s like to use Amazon Prime Now

Amazon’s same-day delivery service is slightly awkward, but incredibly useful.

I am well and truly embedded in the Amazon shopping ecosystem. Having things shipped to my door, often within 36 hours of having placed the order, is something I use several times a week nowadays. It’s useful for regular day-to-day items, but incredible for last minute birthday and Christmas stuff. When Amazon announced Prime Now, an extension of their shipping service that allowed for same-day — even same-hour — delivery, I was plenty excited. Since I live in the suburbs, just about 35 minutes without traffic from Amazon’s Baltimore facility, it seemed unlikely I’d be able to participate in the service anytime soon.

Last week, however, the Prime Now app lit up and claimed I could order things and have them delivered to my house within an hour. It turns out Prime Now and Prime offer wildly different experiences, and choosing between the two for orders in the future is going to be its own unique little first world problem.
