  • We discussed at length the upcoming OnePlus phone simply dubbed the OnePlus Nord.
  • Nimer talked about some news from T-Mobile, the "Uncarrier" and the latest uncarrier move. T-Mobile is allowing users to protect themselves from scam calls. You can read more here.
  • And Marco mentioned in passing, the upcoming Samsung unpack event scheduled for August 5, 2020 at 7:00 AM Pacific time, where Samsung will announce new hardware. You can read more at the verge.


Apps:

  Astrill VPN

We moved on to the primary topic of the episode-- VPN's. We discussed the benefits of VPN apps, and Marco demonstrated his favorite, the Astrill VPN found at this Google Play link.

Listener Questions

Next, we discussed and demonstrated the Voicedream Reader, a great app for both low vision and blind users alike, as a result of a request from Debbie from Melbourne Australia.

We answered another question from David Mehler, from last week's podcast. He asked about which signal check apps we recommend. We recommend both SignalCheck Pro, and NetMonster.

Wrap-up

We closed the session by singing happy birthday to Android. Android is now 15 years old as of July 11.
