Weekly poll results: which Android navigation app do you use?

36
Getting from A to B, most users still trust Google.

Navigation apps are some of the most important apps we use from a safety standpoint.

Just think about it. A navigation app that sends you into off on some wild goose chase, into the sticks, or worse, off-road completely can cost you time and endanger you and anyone else you're driving around. You want an app in your pocket you can trust, and so this week we asked you what navigation app you trusted with your route and your safety, and the results are in. And while these results are not surprising, they did bring us a spirited discussion on what matters to you — our readers — in your navigation apps.

Lenovo's new TAB 2 Android tablets are both under $200

22

Lenovo has introduced the TAB 2 A10-70 and TAB 2 A8 Android tablets for the budget crowd.

Lenovo is taking the wraps off two new tablets at Mobile World Congress that aim to offer great value for your money. The TAB 2 A10, starting at $199, is Lenovo's 10-inch model with a full HD display, a soundbar built into the back using some new Dolby Atmos speaker technology, and ten hours of battery life. The A10 is powered by a 64-bit 1.5 GHz quad-core MediaTek processor and has 2 GB of RAM. It's 8.9 mm thin and 509 grams, which is pretty good, but unfortunately runs Android 4.4 (for now). There's an 8 megapixel camera on the back, and it will be available in blue or white color schemes when it launches in April.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge hands-on preview

550

The Galaxy S5 was hardly a flop. Tens of millions have sold since its introduction last year and you’d be hard-pressed not to see one in use on the street in any populous city around the world. But despite its success relative to other devices in the market, the prevailing feeling about the GS5 is that it didn’t live up to the expectations of a flagship smartphone in 2014. Those shoes were instead filled by the Note 4 launched later in the year, with its superior materials, more refined design and improved camera performance.

Samsung, naturally, is hoping to put the Galaxy S series back on people’s radar as a top device, and it’s doing so by starting afresh with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Though it numerically follows the GS5, the Galaxy S6 bears little resemblance to the previous model, and marks a pretty significant change in the way Samsung designs phones. At the same time, the S6 edge picks up the fun parts of the Galaxy Note Edge and leaves behind the poor software experience.

There’s a brand new design philosophy in play with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, starting with the radical hardware change and flowing into a more considered software experience. These are the phones that Samsung’s hoping will change the perception of its devices in 2015 — let us show you what they’re all about.

Samsung released quite the fury of announcements surrounding the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but we've rounded everything up.

It's a special time each year when a company as big as Samsung can put its full weight behind an set of product announcements, and of course at MWC 2015 it was the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. The news is far larger than just two models of a phone — we also learned about Samsung's new payment system, a new Gear VR model and generally a new direction in design and features for Samsung with the announcements.
