Android fans, this week brought us not one, but two excellent smartphones selling for just $400, the OnePlus 2 and the Moto X Style. In other top news, the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus leaked extensively, details and images of Sony’s next smartphones surfaced, and Google rebooted Android One with the new Lava Pixel V1.

Inside AA HQ

It’s clear from the events of this week that the next battleground for smartphone domination is the $400 price range. While phones like the Axon, Zenfone 2, and even the OnePlus 2 are important, when Motorola entered the fray with its own no-compromise flagship phone, the game has changed for good. It will be very interesting to see how Samsung, LG, or HTCreact to this paradigm shift over the next months.

We have a new team member! Krystal has published her first review on Thursday and the reactions have been very positive. Yes, AA finally has a woman in the team, but we’re happy to see that you guys like Krystal’s tech knowledge and video editing skills. Let Krystal’s AA video be the first of many.
