The Nintendo Switch Lite might have taken a lot of the airwaves this week, but anyone following Samsung's upcoming Unpacked event got a really good look at the upcoming Galaxy Note 10. Joshua Vergara is joined by Jaime Rivera to discuss the latest Nintendo console, why it might not live up to the name 'Switch,' and why they hate themselves enough to still buy it despite owning the original Switch. After that, we react to some of your comments from last week's show before getting into a spirited discussion about what we want to see from the Galaxy Note 10!


Don't forget to jump into the YouTube comments section to answer our question of the week: What do you want to see from the Galaxy Note 10?

A significant shift occurred this past week, and we're not talking about the earthquakes in Southern California. Facebook went down, taking with it services like Instagram and Whatsapp. It led many of our team to explore other messaging applications, as well as ponder how often these outages have been occurring lately. In other news, Huawei made it back into the news by getting off the blacklist... only they're not being treated as such. And Samsung officially put out invitations for their next event, which we are looking forward to attending! Joshua Vergara is joined by TK Bay to discuss all of this and more!


Head over to the YouTube highlight reel to answer our questions of the week: How many messaging applications do you use on the regular? Isn't it ridiculous how many there are? And what happened to texting?

A trip to Tokyo, Japan brings our hosts together to talk about Oppo and their latest phone, the Reno 10x Zoom. Oppo put a lot of faith in their phone that has a shark-fin pop up camera and a telescopic zoom - after all, they brought out a ton of professional photographers (and us) to the land of the rising sun! Interestingly, our time in Tokyo coincided with another announcement by the company: the in-display front facing camera! Jaime Rivera and Isa Rodriguez join Joshua Vergara to discuss all things Oppo!

Our hosts come from international locales to bring you this week's episode of the Weekly! Internet speeds be damned, a one day delay ended up benefiting the show because one of the year's biggest leaks occurred: the Google Pixel 4 is basically official. What was so interesting about this leak is that it came from Google themselves. Joshua Vergara broadcasts from the Philippines and is joined remotely by Jaime Rivera and TK Bay as they talk about the next Pixel device after following up on more Huawei news and some gaming announcements from E3!

We were actually pleasantly surprised at the substantial announcements made at WWDC, both in hardware and software. The beastly Mac Pro (and its insane companion monitor) aside, we got some awesome updates to iOS 13 and the iPad Pro, now a viable secondary display for Macbooks! But no talk was perhaps as impactful as the company taking a stance in data privacy, via a few very particular steps. Joshua Vergara is joined by Brandon Miniman and TK Bay to discuss Apple, Mac, and privacy.

Huawei has had one hell of a last couple of weeks. After getting banned in the United States, high profile companies have been distancing themselves from the Chinese giant. We've already discussed what that could mean for the millions and millions of Huawei users around the world, but the news just keeps on coming - in one case, from the CEO himself! Huawei's leadership has stated that the company would protest a retaliating Chinese ban on Apple products. But in the days since then, a backup plan has emerged. Huawei clearly has a way to continue making their phone chips, but what about a new smartphone operating system? Joshua Vergara sits down with Jaime Rivera and Brandon Miniman to begin the speculation!

You know the top story of the week: Huawei's troubles with Google and the United States at large. While the initial ban on the Chinese giant has been changed to a grace period, the future is still uncertain for Huawei and its group companies, including Honor. Joshua Vergara is joined by Jaime Rivera and Brandon Miniman as the crew discussions the implications of this ban, what might come next for Huawei, and recount the recent release of the Honor 20 series that was also affected by the recent developments. Before all that, Josh checks in with the guests about their thoughts on the OnePlus 7 Pro.

The OnePlus 7 Pro is finally here but we ponder how the Pixel 3a might have changed our perception of the 'Never Settle' mentality. Even then, a new challenger arrives with plenty of high specs but even less of the cost in the ASUS Zenfone 6. TK Bay of XDA and David Imel of Android Authority return to the podcast stage with Joshua Vergara trying to keep all the audio and technical problems at bay!
