What, what?!?! What's dead?!?! How did it die?!?!? And did we have to hit it more than once?!?! Answers to this question, and more, on this week's podcast!

Three weeks of Moto Z in a row? It's almost as if someone was dragging out the release of this phone for more coverage. But we go where the news takes us. And this week we've got our official review of the Moto Z and Moto Z Force (plus more on when it's actually available), the end of PokeCivilization as we know it, and we tackle more of your emails and voicemails. And when you're done with the latest show, why not give our new Pokémon podcast, Go Time, a listen? It's a fantastic addition to our lineup!

Android Central 298: It's dead, Jim


Lol at the first 2 minutes.

But seriously I think the gist with the Moto Z is great mod implementation but it compromised too much with the camera which IMO is an automatic deal breaker. Especially very questionable software support and no I don't consider 3 or 4 security updates to be "support". Also that press release over updates means nothing, time will tell.

Was it a slip that Alex mentioned new Nexus phones would be out in a few weeks or are we really right around the corner from the release of both Android N and new Nexus devices?

Accessory Crime Wave:

You'll pry my extra USB-C charging cable from my cold, dead hands. Did they ever perfect the case with the taser points?
