Daniel Bader, Andrew Martonik, Russell Holly, and Jerry Hildenbrand discuss trust issues with OnePlus when it comes to privacy and security, and why it isn’t necessary to place limits on voice activated services like Google Assistant and Alexa.

Despite some recent claims to the contrary, Andrew explains why 64GB of internal storage is sufficient for most users in 2018. The crew also talks about Google’s efforts to clean house in the Play Store, timeframes for the release of Android P, and slow updates to Oreo for Shield TV and Essential Phone. Join us!
