Android Q is here. Well, at least the first developer beta of Android Q is here. This gives us a sneak peek into the next major version of Android a couple of months early. Android Q Beta 1 can be installed on all Pixel devices – from Pixel 1 to Pixel 3 XL. While most of the awesome features are either half baked or hidden, it gives us an idea as to what Android Q will look like. Here are the top Android Q features you should know about.

Samsung pulled an Apple move this year, but not in the usual way. Samsung added new features and display to Galaxy S10 and increased the price t0 $899. To fill the gap, they’ve got a new “S10 lite” model called Galaxy S10e that sells for $749 (exact price of iPhone XR). If you think the Galaxy S10e is enough for you (or that S10 is out of budget), you’ll need to decide which S10e storage capacity you should buy. Read on for our guide below.
If you’re not in the Pixel camp or the OnePlus team, the Galaxy S10 is the smartphone you’ve been looking forward to. And after many years of monotonous design, Samsung is rewriting the Galaxy playbook. A part of the new changes (like the hole punch display, triple camera setup, and on-screen fingerprint scanner) is the storage tiers. If you’re confused as to which Galaxy S10 and S10+ storage capacity you should go for, read our guide below.
The Android flagship you’ve been waiting for is here. The Samsung Galaxy S10 has a new design, all-screen hole punch display, and a lot more cameras. Before you decide to press the order button, there’s one thing to consider – the color. Which Galaxy S10 color is for you?
TikTok is quickly becoming one of the most popular apps on Android. It’s right up there with heavyweights like PUBG and Instagram. TikTok lets users create fun 15 seconds lip-sync videos. They make for a great time-kill when you’re too bored to do anything else (and if you’re tired of mindlessly scrolling through the same posts on Instagram).
While the Pixel 3 looks the same as the Pixel 2 from behind, Google has a new trick up its sleeve. The Pixel 3 now has an all-glass back. The two-tone color effect is achieved by a new matte coating over the glass. The two phones now come in three different color options, cheekily named Clearly White, Just Black and Not Pink. The two old white and black versions are mostly the same, with some tweaked accent colors. The new Pink version can easily pass as a sand color.
Facebook’s Messenger’s chat head style bubbles are just bloody useful. They stay on the side of the screen, almost hidden, until you need them. Just tap on the circle, and the messaging thread shows up on top of whatever is on the screen. Type your reply, send it along, tap the bubble and it’s out of the way again. Chat bubbles are so useful it’s no wonder that Android developers are trying to use it in many creative ways – that’s where the floating browser concept comes in.
Typing is probably in the top two things you do the most on your phone (the other being reading). With our lives being surrounded by chat apps like WhatsApp, Messenger, Slack and the always present email, we end up typing a lot. But we don’t really think about it (just like we don’t think about the mattress we sleep on or the chair we work on, even though it’s a significant part of our life).
Gboard was first released on iOS, almost a year back. And it was by far the best third party keyboard there (it’s the default keyboard on my iPhone). But the move left Android users understandably pissed. Here’s Google, releasing an awesome, useful app not on Android, but on iOS. What universe is this?
