Samsung's Two Piece case is actually kind of perfect

May 19 10:00am Android Central - Android Forums, News, Reviews, Help and Android Wallpapers
I'm not sure I'd call this a case, but I love it and want one for every phone. A common thread alongside the unveil of the Galaxy S8 was a critical side-eye at the Two Piece case that would be sold for both sizes of the phone. Samsung didn't spend a lot of time explaining how this case worked, only that it had a top and a bottom that didn't connect and several color options that didn't match would be made available after the phone was released. While everyone else was laughing, I bought one to see how it actually worked. To be perfectly honest, what Samsung did here is brilliant and I'm eager to see other companies follow suit. I don't think this really qualifies as a case, but it's a nice-looking bumper. If you've been reading my stuff for a while, you know I don't use cases. I can't ever stand them for long, something about $40 of plastic and silicone making the phone bulkier and generally not feeling as nice as the actual phone bothers me. It's not that I don't care abou...

The Best Smartphone Camera, as judged by YOU!

May 19 9:00am Android Central - Android Forums, News, Reviews, Help and Android Wallpapers
So who makes the best smartphone camera? Here's what you picked. We've long run camera comparisons on our own, but it's hard to remove our own biases — and frankly, it's just our opinion. With some new high-profile phones on the market, we thought it was again time to pit these cameras against each other and see who came out on top. So we showed you 20 sets of photos taken by four unspecified phones, stripping out all identifying data and presented in a randomized-on-load order, and asked you to pick the best. We did this so you'd judge the photos on their quality alone. With a wide range of photos, it's time to determine the best. According to your total of nearly 53,000 votes, the best smartphone camera belongs to the Samsung Galaxy S8. Some of the competition was incredibly close, though. Just half a percent separated the Galaxy S8 from the second-place Google Pixel, and the LG G6 was only a few percent behind them. It's close enough that with a different set of phot...
