You can buy your LeEco phone at LeMall, but not the one with LeNordstroms.
Imagine if you had the new LeEco 85-inch uMax85 4k TV connected to your gaming computer to play Grand Theft Auto V. You would be able to see every little detail when the Note 7 you threw at your rival (which is Steve Haines no matter what anyone else says) blew up and caused a fire and/or a panic.

We get why Samsung isn't finding the humor here, but abusing copyright laws isn't how to fix it. Bad form, Samsung.
On a happier note that will get your freedom juices pumping (or something, cut me some slack) the Android 7.1 developer preview is now available for the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Pixel C. You know the drill — enroll in beta, receive download, turn to internet to say how awesome/horrible it is. We're checking it out, too.
And who would have thought that Verizon would be the cheapest place to find a V20?
