In this week’s top stories: Our Google Home review, our first impressions with the Huawei Mate 9, we take a look at the best apps using Android Nougat’s Quick Settings tiles so far, and much more.

We kick things off with the latest Android news including our hands-on and unboxing of the new Huawei Mate 9 in our top videos. Stephen gives you a full review of Google Home as it goes on sale this week. And Google’s director of security claims Android is as secure as iOS on the iPhone (and soon to be better).

We move onto app news and give you a rundown of the best apps already using the Android Nougat Quick Settings tiles. The Project Fi companion app adds real-time date usage alerts and updates. Hangouts 14.0 brings app shortcuts, but no GIF image keyboard.
