Google Search Lite in limited testing in some markets [APK Download]

One of Google’s key points at its I/O conference last May was making Android more accessible for emerging markets, especially those with phones with very constrained hardware.

Android OEM customizations are never going away, and that’s OK

Android OEM customizations are never going away, and that’s OK

There was some small amount of rejoicing within the Android community when Lenovo revealed that it would be putting its custom “Pure Vibe” skin to rest, starting with the K8 Note that was launched last week. As if in juxtaposition, Xiaomi is about to start the rollout of the latest version of its own custom experience, the MIUI 9. As much as Google and some Android users want to be rid of them, custom OEM modifications to stock Android aren’t going anywhere soon.

Galaxy Note 8’s cameras just leaked

For the first time in the Galaxy Note's history, two cameras may be equipped on the device's backside. A 2x camera setup replicates what other big brands like Apple and Huawei have been doing for the past year, pushing the abilities of the device to new limits with two lenses that have different abilities.
