It was a busy week at Android Authority! Not only did we bring you some great coverage from Computex 2016, but we also had the opportunity to go hands-on with the new Samsung Gear Fit 2 at a special Samsung press event in New York.
In addition to the two press events, this week we brought you our hands-on coverage of the new Moto G4 and G4 Plus, a look at the Huawei P9‘s software in a feature focus, and much more. Without further delay, here are the Android-related videos you don’t want to miss this week.

Moto G4 and G4 Plus Hands On
The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus were announced over two weeks ago, but we didn’t manage to get a hold of them until this week at Computex 2016. The Moto G series is among the most popular when it comes to affordable tech, so you will want to check out Lanh’s thoughts on these handsets.
