Worth a Read

  • Samsung has issued guidance that its profits are likely to decline again due to continued downward pressure on its smartphone line. With $300-400 being the new sweet spot for performance-oriented Android phones, and multiple new entrants (and chipsets) in the space, Samsung will likely continue to cut costs and possibly development. At some point we should expect to see them move to a more "Nexus-like" default experience, as their software development efforts are not paying dividends. It's important to note that sales and profit dropoffs appear to be snowballing a little, and its unclear how Samsung will be able to differentiate.
  • The Android 6 and 9 are expected to release this month, and a new ad campaign has leaked with some teasers to both devices and (possibly) Android L. There's a bunch of speculation what L will stand for, but we should probably see the new class of Nexus devices announced this week, and there's even more rumors that L will drop within the month. Lots of signs pointing to this, with multiple app and developer updates incorporating Google's Material Design. It's coming. Soon.




  • Search survey being released: 1) How do people feel about the Google vs Yahoo search experience? 2) How do people feel about Search Activity?
  • Sentiment report pending
  • Keeping an eye out for release feedback
  • No Feedback Report this week, haven't see anything abnormal
