Android fans, this week we learned more details about the upcoming Nexus 6P and 5X; the BlackBerry Priv starred in several hands-on ahead of its official unveiling; OnePlus X specs and images leaked out; details surfaced about the HTCOne A9 and Motorola’s Droid Maxx 2; and OEMs revealed more about their Marshmallow plans.

Hungry for Marshmallow? We’ve put together a Marshmallow updates roundup, a one stop shop for all information regarding Android 6 releases, OEM update plans, and custom ROMs based on Marshmallow. We will be updating it frequently, so you know where to come to keep up with the Marshmallow rollout.
The camera will always be a key aspect of the smartphone experience. We all agree on that, but when it comes to which phone has the best camera, the Android community is divided. We’re trying to bring a little objectivity into the mix with our blind camera shootout between the Xperia Z5, LG G4, Galaxy Note 5, and iPhone 6S. Vote here and come back for the results tomorrow.
