Amex cardmembers in Canada can try out Amex Pay on their NFC-enabled Android devices.

American Express is giving Canadian cardmembers a new way to pay, launching Amex Pay as a new feature built into the pre-existing Amex CA app for Android. Amex Pay will work for any Amex cardmember with Consumer, Small Business, or Corporate Cards issued by Amex Bank of Canada, and an NFC-enabled Android phone with the Amex app installed.

You’re able to activate up to six cards on one device, but cards can only be activated for Amex Pay on one device at a time. When you add a card to the app, it creates a Device Card Number — a unique code that pairs your card to your device. If at any point you get a new phone, you must deactivate your cards on your old device before adding them to the new phone. If you happen to lose your Amex card, you can continue to use Amex Pay on your phone as you do while waiting for the replacement card to arrive. Your replacement card will automatically remain linked to your device thanks to the Device Card Number.

There are some caveats, however. Prepaid cards and products (such as the American Express Gift Card) as well as Corporate Purchasing Cards, Global Dollar Cards and Corporate Meeting Cards are not eligible for Amex Pay, and if your phone loses it’s connection to the Internet, you are only permitted to make five transactions or authorizations before you are required to reconnect.

If you’re an Amex cardholder in Canada and you haven’t yet checked out the Amex app, now is as good a time as ever. You’ll also get the benefit to manage your accounts with customizable features such as payment due and statement ready alerts, view PDF statements and pending transactions, as well as redeem your rewards points for eligible travel and everyday purchases charged to the card.

Grab one before the great rebranding!

Google’s efforts in connecting your home have been going a little slower than many had hoped. Announcements for Weave, Brillo, and OnHub made it seem like Google was ready to tie your home together in short order and have you ready to connect your home to your phone, but reality hasn’t quite caught up yet. We’re now seeing Google transition from OnHub to Google WiFi, with some new hardware to allow for mesh networking if you need it.

That doesn’t mean your existing OnHub router isn’t any good, in fact they will work great with the new Google WiFi expanders. Which also means you can get started connecting your home Google WiFi style right now with some seriously discounted OnHub equipment and be happier in the long run.

While the TP-Link OnHub router is a little more difficult to get on a great deal, the ASUS OnHub router is ready to be delivered to your home for $94 off the original price. That means you can get started with Google WiFi for less than the cost of one of the new single white pucks, and expand as necessary. Plus, when Google finally figures out how the rest of their connected home strategy is actually going to work, OnHub will be there to receive an update.

Fighting dishonest app reviews is a never-ending battle.

Google is constantly taking steps to combat a flood of fake reviews and ratings in the Play Store, and today reminded us of everything it’s doing to fix the problem. Building on its previously announced initiative of fighting fraudulent app installs, Google is also now even more confident it can identify and remove fake reviews for apps automatically without the help of developers.

From the Android Developers Blog:

In continuing our efforts to combat spammy behavior, we’ve also improved the ways we identify and remove fake reviews and ratings. With this enhanced capability we are now able to identify and remove more fake reviews and ratings with greater accuracy.

Speaking directly to the developer community who are hurt the most by piles of negative reviews, Google says in “the vast majority of cases” no action will be required by developers — it will handle things all on its own, removing these false reviews and ratings in bulk.

Developers shouldn’t rely on shady practices to boost ratings, either.

The announcement comes with an additional warning for developers, though: if you use a third-party marketing agency, you should make sure it isn’t using many of the same spam-like or dishonest reviews to try and influence your rating postitively either. Google will continue to fight things on this side as well, as the overall goal is to have the rating for apps be an honest representation of the app, not just make every app rating high.

The hope is that by removing dishonest reviews (on both ends of the spectrum) both consumers and developers can be more confident when viewing an overall rating in the Play Store. If confidence is lost, app installs (and revenue for developers) go down.

Cyanogen Inc. could shutter headquarters before the end of the year

Cyanogen Inc. revealed last month that it would undertaking an executive reshuffle and change its strategy with Cyanogen OS. Instead of selling it as a standalone platform, Cyanogen rolled out what it called the “Cyanogen Modular OS program,” giving handset manufacturers the ability to selectively choose individual portions of the OS.

It now looks like the company is now preparing for another round of layoffs — its second this year — and a possible closure of its Seattle headquarters. That’s according to Android Police, citing unnamed sources familiar with the matter.

There’s no mention of how many positions are affected, but it looks like a few employees are being offered the option to relocate to Cyanogen’s Palo Alto office. The report also claims that Cyanogen cofounder Steve Kondik’s future at the company is unknown. Last month’s reshuffle saw Kondik lose his seat at the board and transition from CTO to “Chief Science Officer.” We should be hearing more from the company in the coming days.

The move won’t hamper the development of the community-driven CyanogenMod, which is independent of Cyanogen Inc.

With a month of use behind us, how is the larger of the two Pixel phones holding up?

The Google Pixel XL, the larger of the two Pixel handsets, is a great phone. In fact, we currently rank it as the best Android phone you can buy. But the real mark of a top-tier smartphone is that it stands up to months, or even years of use without skipping a beat. That’s why we’re going to revisit both Pixel models over the coming months, updating our impressions as we go.

I’ve been using the Pixel XL since October 14, and during that time it’s been my daily driver, accompanying me on trips halfway across the world, as well as being by my side through more mundane everyday tasks. So it’s time to reflect on my first month with the phone. Let’s dig in.

Hardware, wear and tear

My Pixel XL in Quite Black has accompanied me on 10 flights across four countries over the past month, and in doing so it’s picked up a few signs of wear. I should note that the phone hasn’t been dropped or scuffed (that I’ve noticed), but still there are some early signs of use. The most visible of these are around the back, where the notoriously scratch-prone back glass has continued to pick up abrasions. That’s an inevitable result of having this glass section flush with the back of the phone. (And also, I suppose, an argument in favor of camera bumps, which prop up the back of a phone.

There’s also a small section where the anodized paint job has worn away a little on the top left corner. And a tiny hairline scratch on the front glass, above the display. No idea how either of those happened — I’ve babied this phone as much as any during its first month in service.

The XL’s design is just a little bit boring — unless you’re talking abut the crazy blue version.

None of these small nicks and scratches are really visible unless you go looking for them. In photos, they’re almost impossible to spot. It’s very minor cosmetic damage. Nevertheless, it’s there, and it seems to have accumulated quicker than a lot of other phones I’ve used this year.

As for the design itself, the common criticism that the Pixel looks dull or uninspired is understandable. Especially in black, it’s pretty generic looking. And buyers outside the U.S. don’t yet have the option to buy the more eye-catching “Really Blue” version.

Performance and software

The Pixel was blazing fast a month ago, and so it remains today, even with 70 apps currently installed. I’ve manually updated to the newer firmware version that hit Canadian Pixels recently, giving me the helpful option to have the display wake after I pick it up. It’s a small addition, but it makes a huge difference. I’ve ended up turning off double-tap-to-wake, which right now seems way too sensitive to unintentional touches when the screen is switched off.

Google’s phones take a step beyond stock Android this year, and for the most part I’ve become used to the quirks of the way the Pixel’s UI handles. To begin with, I found Google’s (bizarrely inconsistent) move towards circular app icons jarring. That’s still kind of the case — everyday apps like the camera, Gmail and Google Calendar look bad — a tiny app icon in an enormous circular frame. But slowly things are improving, as third-party apps like Twitter and Uber add decent-looking circular icons. Maybe Google’s vision of this new, circular future for apps will become clearer in the year ahead.

I’m still in love with the ‘Aurora’ live wallpaper.

The Pixel has a bunch of Google-specific software features besides rounded icons, of course. And weirdly, the thing I’ve enjoyed using the most on a daily basis has been the Aurora live wallpaper. Google’s phones have no shortage of impressive home screen backdrops, but the way Aurora dynamically changes based on weather, location and time of day, makes it truly live. Depending on when you use the phone, you can end up with some pretty wild combinations of colors.

There’s a great article on Google’s design site covering this wallpaper and many other aspects of the Pixels’ audiovisual design. For instance, did you know Aurora’s gradients were designed to line up exactly with the glass on the rear of the phone?

I’ve also come to enjoy the convenience of Android Pay, as my bank finally got onboard with the service in the past couple of months — and I’ve been using it the most on the Pixel XL. The service exists separately to the Pixel, of course, but the phone’s hardware still plays a part. It’s useful to reliably be able to tap the top corner of the phone to pay, just like the iPhone. No monkeying around trying to find where the NFC antenna begins and ends.

At the other end of the spectrum I’ve all but completely stopped using Google Assistant. I’m not big on voice interaction with gadgets anyway, and Assistant remains a version 1.0 product with some unfortunate consistency issues.

Storage anxiety

At this point I’m just going to say it: If you’re at all on the fence, just get the 128GB Pixel. You won’t regret it in the long run. An extra $100 upfront will save you the hassle of juggling photos off into the cloud, and clearing out app caches periodically. When you’re paying this much for a phone to begin with, it makes total sense to stump up a little extra and turn storage into a non-issue.

By keeping things relatively light, and offloading photos when I can, I’m usually a little over half-full on this 32GB Pixel XL.

But if you go with a 32GB Pixel, you will eventually run out of space, and have to use the “clear up space” feature to offload your photos to Google’s cloud. Then you’ll be searching for apps to uninstall, media to clear out, music to purge. It’s an issue I’ve run into while traveling this past month. The same has happened to our own Florence Ion, currently traveling in New Zealand, and The Verge’s Vlad Savov, traveling in the Netherlands.

Updated camera impressions

My impressions of the Pixel’s camera really haven’t changed since our review. It’s one of the best phone cameras out there, relying on Google excellent HDR+ processing to match the likes of the Galaxy S7 and iPhone 7 in daylight pics, and occasionally blow them away in full auto when shooting in the dark.

I’ve yet to find the infamous lens flare issue a huge problem. It’s something which sometimes happens, but the light needs to hit the phone’s lens at a very specific angle in order for it to mess up a shot. I’m missing the lack of any manual shooting modes just a bit, but given the fact that the phone leans so much on HDR+, which takes multiple exposures and relies on computation to stitch them together, it’s understandable. (Seriously, you don’t want to turn HDR+ off completely. Low-light photos will look horrible if you do.)

Enough words — here are some pretty pictures taken by the Pixel XL. All are unprocessed, pulled straight from the phone. (You’ll find more in my Pixel XL travel piece from a few weeks back.)

More: Pixel lens flare, and how to avoid it

Still one of the best — but pricey

Little has changed in the past six weeks or so — the Pixel is every bit as good today as it was when I first began using it in mid-October. Google may still be finding its groove when it comes to iconography, but the rest of the Pixel’s software experience is fast, and a joy to use. Welcome touches like the Aurora live wallpaper give the phone that extra bit of polish.

Surprise! The Pixel XL is still great.

Google has nailed every part of the core experience — the Pixel XL is, for me, just about the right size. (I couldn’t imagine going back to something as small as the regular 5-inch Pixel.) Its camera is among the best I’ve used on any phone, and arguably the best overall in some situations. Meanwhile, battery life and day-to-day performance go toe-to-toe with what the competition can offer — though I’m still not quite confident enough that I’ll get two days per charge.

But do yourself a favor and buy the 128GB model. You’ll thank me when you don’t have to delete all your stuff.

Jake Paul pulls multiple Gs while unboxing the OnePlus 3T.

In honor of the OnePlus 3T — the souped-up version of the OnePlus 3 the company released back in June — OnePlus enlisted some help to give its speedier new model an unboxing video worthy of the new Snapdragon 821 processor, 16MP front-facing camera, beefed-up 3400mAh battery, and new 128GB storage option.

Yes, that’s YouTuber and Vine star Jake Paul taking the OnePlus 3T along for a ride in a Mig 15 at an airbase in the Czech Republic. Watch as Paul tries to keep his composure, unboxing the new OnePlus 3T in Gunmetal Grey, talking about some of the upgraded features while the pilot ahead of him take the fighter jet pulls off aerial stunts at dizzying heights.

While cynical YouTube commenters have been quick to question the value of what would seem like a pretty expensive concept for what resulted in a rather superfluous two-minute unboxing offering little insight or informational value for the phone itself, we’re fine to take this fun vid strictly at face value. Besides, it’s easily the coolest unboxing video we’ve seen since T-Mobile unboxed the Samsung Galaxy S7 underwater to showcase the IP68 dust- and water-resistance of Samsung’s 2016 flagship device.
