Google launches the first developer preview of Android 11

Instead, they are a way for developers to test their applications and ge...

Enhancing work profile privacy on company-owned devices

Just because people use their phones at work, doesn’t mean they should have to sacrifice their privacy. Since Android 5.0, the work profile has helped ensure personal data remains private from IT even when employees bring their device to work, while giving IT the tools they need to secure corporate data. But when given a phone by their company, employees don’t always know what IT can and can’t see. That’s a challenge for employees who want to keep their personal data private; in a recent survey ...

Motion Design for the Comprehensive Pixel 4 Visual System

Motion Design for the Comprehensive Pixel 4 Visual System abduzeedoFeb 07, 2020 I own an iPhone 11 Pro and the Pixel 4 XL and I have to say. Pause here, the Pixel 4 is much nicer from the industrial design point of view than the iPhone. I am talking about just the way that it feels when holding. There's something about the black rails, the pop of color of the white one and the simplicity that makes it especial. Before you ask me, I hate the chins and wish it ...

The better everyday camera — Pixel 4 or iPhone 11 Pro?

I need a new phone.                               A big chunk of my time on the iPhone was spent taking pictures, so I’m heavily basing the next smartphone on its camera capabilities. After playing around with the Pixel 4 for Brian’s review, I’m considering switching teams.

Leak: The Pixel 4a looks better than the actual Pixel 4

Serial phone leaker OnLeaks has a good record of creating fairly accurate renders of phones before they are released.
