Android Community Weekly Digest: Aug 2, 2015

That was definitely a feature packed week. We already expected things to heat up with the new OnePlus 2 and new Motorola smartphones, but boy did Motorola surprise us. The twin Moto X variants was something we totally unexpected. But this week was also the time for review, particularly a financial review.
