From all of us here at Android Authority, we hope you’re having a wonderful time with your friends and family this holiday season. We can’t wait to show you what’s coming down the pipeline, as we gear up for CES 2016! Yes, that’s right, CES is just around the corner, and of course, the Android Authority team will be on the show floor, bringing you the best Android-related content around.
Before we head to CES, though, we thought we’d bring you a quick roundup of the best videos we released this week. We’ve published our full reviews of the Google Pixel C, ZTE Axon Mini Premium Edition and OPPO R7s, rounded up some of the best Android apps and games of 2015, and even had time to help figure out who actually makes the best SoC. It’s been a busy week and we have a lot to cover here, so let’s jump right in – here are the Android-related videos you don’t want to miss this week.
Google Pixel C review
Google’s Pixel C tablet is a beautiful, powerful, confusing machine. Can it really be used to do more than a “normal” Android tablet? Is it worth the high price point? Lanh walks us through everything you need to know about the Google Pixel C.
ZTE Axon Mini Premium Edition review
The ZTE Axon Mini was already a great phone, and now the company has put out another iteration with a pressure-sensitive display. Despite some processor and fingerprint sensor woes, how does this device fare against the competition? Gary finds out in our full review of the ZTE Axon Mini Premium Edition.
OPPO R7s review
OPPO’s new R7s is a great mid-range offering with a larger display, larger battery, and even looks a little better than past devices from the company. Is there anything you should know before buying one for yourself, though? Don’t miss Krystal’s full review of the OPPO R7s.

Who makes the best SoC?
We recently published an in-depth comparison of the leading SoCs from Qualcomm, Samsung, MediaTek and Huawei, but we didn’t include Intel. Since there seems to be a good amount of interest to see how Intel compares to these SoCs, we thought it would be a good idea to add the latest from Intel into our comparison. If you’re interested, you don’t want to miss Gary’s full comparison of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, the Samsung Exynos 7420 and the Intel Atom Z3580.
