Update: The podcast will be on your podcatchers starting at 3am Eastern on April 16. Enjoy!

The HTC 10 is taking the Android world by storm. Can this one phone turn the tides for HTC? Our LG G5 coverage is in full swing, and everything you want to know about this phone will be answered. Lastly, another “backdoor” encryption bill is headed to congress, what might this mean for consumer tech?

We’ve been hard at work covering news stories and producing the next generation of phone reviews. We recently started a new series of videos delving deeper into camera performance and phone comparisons, and of course we’ll be tackling your questions and comments. Make sure you’re charged and ready! It’s time for episode 196 of the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the video broadcast from 2:00pm Eastern on April 14th (click here for your local time), or check out the high-quality audio version starting this weekend. And don’t forget to shoot your listener mail to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air!

Today’s episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is made possible by:

Midroll-Media-logo-ccWe have great advertisers that support the show and keep it free for listeners. One of the reasons why advertisers love the Pocketnow Weekly Podcast is that they know the show has an amazing audience. To help us pair up with appropriate sponsors, that have products and services you are interested in, we’d greatly appreciate you taking a quick survey by going to http://podsurvey.com/pocketnow

This survey should take less than 5 minutes. It’s going to ask you some questions about yourself and what you like to buy, but it’s completely anonymous. Your answers help us find advertisers that are well matched to you, your interests, and the show. When you’re finished you can also enter a monthly drawing to win a $100 Amazon gift card.

Even if you’ve taken a podcast listener survey before we’d like to ask you to take ours, and help support the show, and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to win that $100 gift card. Thanks for helping us find the best advertisers so that we can keep the show free. http://podsurvey.com/pocketnow
