Andy and Flo continue their epic saga from this week's All About Android. Then, Flo airs her frustrations with life and how a SIM card made her cry. Andy joins in with frustrations of his own, and then we dive into Google's trouble with France. We also mull through the Google Games Developer Summit's announcements and the rumors and leaks surrounding the next batch of Android smartphones. We managed to get to OnePlus's benchmark fiasco, too, and Andy summarizes the BBC's interview with Sundar Pichai.
