Born and raised in New Jersey, Justin is a student at Fairleigh Dickinson University where he is a marketing major with a focus on digital marketing. He's very talkative and enjoys discussing anything from technology and sports to video games and television. As for Justin's current device rotation, he carries around the LG G4 and Nexus 9. He chose the G4 because of its crisp display and superior camera. And, of course, the Nexus 9 was chosen for all of its stock Android goodness. In the rare case that his phone or tablet is not in his hand, he is either flicking through cards on his LG G Watch or typing away on the Acer Chromebook 13. Justin is patiently waiting for the day that Google replicates the Galaxy Nexus with modern day specifications.

Geoff has been an Android enthusiast for many years, starting with the original Droid, which he purchased solely because he did not yet believe in the efficiency of virtual keyboards. His current phone is a Nexus 5, but admits the camera is wanting. He works for an international development firm, handling humanitarian projects overseas. Aside from his writings at Talk Android, he also edits the BLOCK magazine of the Missouri Star Quilt Co., owns and runs a podcast network, and occasionally writes and/or performs music. He's an avid Angels and FC Barcelona fan and pretends he knows how to cook, but his wife will say differently. He is from Southern California and resides in Washington, DC.
Born in southern Alabama, Jared spends his working time selling phones and his spare time writing about them. The Android enthusiasm started with the original Motorola Droid and an unhealthy obsession with fixing things that aren't broken. This accidentally led to being the go-to guy for anything more complicated than a toaster, which he considers more of a curse than a blessing. Jared is enrolled in online classes at the University of Phoenix, and spends his spare time on video games and listening to music.

Life at home often includes demonstrations of the superiority of his Android based devices. In his free time, Jeff is active in his church, a local MINI Cooper car club, and his daughter's soccer club. Jeff is married, has three kids, and a golden retriever.
