Merging the Galaxy Note and S lines is the best move for Samsung

It’s time to say goodbye to the Note… sort of. Samsung’s Galaxy Note line seems to be on its way out, at least if recent leaks of the Galaxy S22 Ultra hold any merit. It started last year with rumors that Samsung would cancel the Note lineup, then those rumors were fueled by the Galaxy S21 Ultra when Samsung provided it with S Pen support, and continued when the Galaxy Z Fold 3 arrived in lieu of a Note successor.

What fitness tech and apps do the Android Central staff actually use?

When it comes to the best fitness trackers or fitness-themed smartwatches, we'll test each watch for a couple of weeks to get a clear sense of how they work. But then we'll move on to the following review, and that watch will get shoved in a bin with other tech or shipped back to the company.

I think it’s fair to say that Android 12 hasn’t had the smoothest of launches. Not only is it late (relative to the last few versions anyway), but now that it’s finally here it, well, isn’t really. Google made the odd decision to launch Android 12 onto the Android Open...

Android 12 Gets ‘Snow Cone’ as Its Dessert Name

Android 12 is codenamed ‘Snow Cone’, a Google executive revealed on Twitter. The trend of giving dessert names to new Android versions isn’t new as Google used titles such as Ice Cream Sandwich, Marshmallow, and Nougat in the past. However, that custom was changed with the release of Android 10 in 2019 as the company then decided to use the numerical order for calling its new Android releases. Android 12 was released on Monday as the latest operating system from the house of Google — months after going through testing under various developer previews and beta builds.
