Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are about to get really real - CNET

But bear with me, because it's going to be big. Ready? Smartphone integration in cars -- specifically Android Auto and Apple CarPlay -- is finally past the tipping point of revolutionizing our in-car experience. That means that instead of squinting at your phone and tapping when you should have your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel, more cars will be able to access the stuff inside your personal Android phone or iPhone from the dashboard.

For example, you can easily navigate to an address in your contacts list, and play music with your voice.

Hands On: ZTE Axon 7

These days, even budget phones are pretty amazing pieces of hardware, and there are a number of so-called flagship killers on the market. Among the best high-powered phones with low prices we saw in 2015 was the ZTE Axon Pro. ZTE hopes to challenge the likes of the Galaxy S7, iPhone 6S, LG G5, and HTC 10 with a new flagship killer, the Axon 7.

The Axon 7 stays true to the original with its 5.5-inch, 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution screen, though this time, it’s an AMOLED panel instead of IPS screen. In other words, the Axon 7 should display deeper blacks and contrast to help colors jump out with more drama. When you look at the back of the phone, the Axon 7 strongly resembles the HTC One M8 with its smooth metal finish, perfectly centered camera lens, and subtle antenna lines. The Axon brand name is the only other decoration on the back of the device. Warranty and availability Flagship specs Malarie Gokey/Digital Trends. Top 10: Best Apps For Android – May 2016.
