In this episode, Hayato, Daniel, Ara, and Jerry check out the final Developer Preview of Android 12. They also talk about Sony's Xperia 1 III, the TCL Fold 'n Roll concept phone, and the Fitbit Luxe.

Apple had their Spring Loaded event this week, so the gang takes some time to view their announcements through the lens of Android users.

  • On the Xperia , i think a more important question is what is Sony's intention. Screaming that the camera sucks when taking a picture of the sun? Try shooting your A7iii at the sun, and see what happens. I bet you don't claim the A7iii sucks, right.
  • Good show, guys.
