Adam went to the launch of the Moto Z3 and Verizon’s 5G network - hear his unfiltered hands on look at Moto’s new phone.

Huawei knocked out Apple as the number two smartphone seller in the world, but we have to wonder if those numbers are fudged just a bit.

Samsung releasing the Galaxy Note 9 early might be just what it needs to perk up slower sales.

And finally, we take a look at how Epic Games is handling its Fortnite distribution on Android. Spoiler alert, two of the three of us think it sucks.
