Jason Howell of "All About Android" and many other shows on the TWiT network joins Jerry and Daniel to examine all the new features in Android 11 Beta 2. They also talk about Microsoft's first foray into an Android phone, the Surface Duo. It's certain to be a niche product, but will it be too niche? And for that matter, will it be any good?

Russell Holly joins Daniel and Jerry for a chat about Google's purchase of AR glasses company North. Dell's new Chromebooks with 10th Gen Intel processors could gain Steam support, which could help win the hearts and minds of gamers. Qualcomm's new Snapdragon Wear 4100 is on the way. The company says it could provide an 85% performance boost to Wear OS smartwatches, with 25% better battery life. The gang are skeptical but optimistic about these claims. The OnePlus Nord is now official. It's a strange name for an interesting phone that will sadly not be available in North America. Finally, Daniel introduces a new segment to the show: "What's Making Us Happy"!

Daniel Bader is joined this week by fellow Android Central cohorts Joe Maring and Harish Jonnalagadda to discuss what Apple has "politely stolen" from Android for iOS 14. On the flip side of that coin, they talk about what missing and different in the Android world compared to iPhone. Harish also provides an exclusive peek at OnePlus Nord, including its dual 32MP + 8MP front cameras.

Michael Fisher stops by for a chat about the amazing series of videos on his Mr. Mobile YouTube channel: 'When Phones Were Fun'. He, Daniel, and Andrew also discuss why many developers give preference to Apple's App Store over Google Play, despite Apple's onerous and inconsistent rules. They share thoughts on Sony's Xperia 1 ii, the camera in Huawei's P40 Pro Plus, Jelly 2, Google Pixel Buds, and more. Overall, this episode is packed floor-to-ceiling with phone geekery!
