AndroidBeat launched on the eve of the Samsung Galaxy S4 unveiling and aims to become one of the leading sources for Android news and tips online. We are passionate about the platform, we spend hours trying out apps and games, rooting and installing mods, searching for ways to improve our experience and make our phones and tablets work for us.
Our goal is to share this passion and knowledge with you, by finding the best Android related content and news, as well as all the apps, tips and tricks that we discover while using our devices.
