Welcome to the HIGH on Android Sunday Summary, where we get super HIGH on all the Android news from the past week. First I’ll run down the list of what went down this week, then I’ll give a few thoughts on the events!

Some of my thoughts on the news this week…

  • I’m pretty pumped about the G4 being released in the coming weeks, and even more excited now that we are getting free gifts and QuickCharge 2.0. I’d also like to remind LG that it still isn’t too late to send me a review unit of the G4! šŸ˜‰
  • I’m also very interested in what Huawei has to say at their June 2 event for the US, and the unveiling of the ASUS Zenwatch 2. If the Zenwatch 2 has the rumored 4 day battery life, it could be a game changer for the Android Wear market.
  • The Iron Man version of the Galaxy S6 Edge looks pretty awesome from some artist renderings, but I just want to know, will it come without scratches out of the box?
  • Furthermore, how hard is it to make a cover for your phone that doesn’t scratch the screen (looking at you Samsung)? I was under the impression Gorilla Glass 4 shouldn’t scratch from dust particles under your case…
  • NVIDIA Shield Pro might be the Android TV device we all deserve, but at the $299 price tag, is it one consumers need right now?
  • I’m glad Samsung wants to bring the camera back on their smartwatches, but not sure how I feel about the round screen. I loved that Samsung’s Gear S was different from everything else available right now.

Thats all for this week folks. Check out my preview for the week of 5/18, going up later tonight, and come back next Sunday for another summary of super HIGH on Android news!

"I am currently a researcher and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University. I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When Iā€™m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
