They say a picture is a worth a thousand words. What about several great videos? Every week, we round up some of the best videos about Android, mobile devices, and technology, from Android Authority and around the web. Just hit play!

Felix Baumgartner should buy an LG G2

This isn’t the first time someone straps a phone to a weather balloon, but this video of the LG G2 travelling to the stratosphere contains some of the finest imagery of its kind.

Our cores are better

Qualcomm takes a few swings at MediaTek in this just released video ad. The gist of it: MediaTek’s eight-core processor doesn’t hold a candle against Qualcomm’s newer, beefier SoCs. Everything’s packed in a Guitar Hero theme (remember that?)

Oh Sony, you tease

There’s a new sheriff in smartphone town and his name is Honami. Well, Honami, a.k.a. the Sony Z1, hasn’t actually arrived yet, but with just days left to IFA, we can’t contain our excitement. For its part, Sony’s doing a good job teasing the Z1 in this video.

Siri disses Google Glass, oh my

There’s a feud going on in the world of virtual assistants and the folks at iDownloadBlog captured some of the heated exchange on video. We wonder what Glass thinks of Siri.

Google phone showdown

If you want a Googley phone, you can go two routes right now: Nexus 4 or Moto X. Our Joshua Vergara pits the two devices against each other in this spanking fresh Versus video.

So relatable

The following video is a bit older, but it’s been making the rounds on Google Plus and other social networks this week, so we decided to include it. It’s also a nice reminder that there’s life beyond pixels and gigahertz. I think we can all relate to that.


This one’s self-explanatory: we’re stoked that so many of you love our videos and subscribe to our YouTube channel. Thank you guys!
