When Android burst onto the scene, every company wanted a way to show the world that their device was unique.

Since 2014, the number of big names that still persist with skinning has dwindled, to the point where you may be surprised that Lenovo was still trying. Although it is likely that the union with Motorola -- a strong proponent of stock Android -- helped sway the decision.

Android Wear updates leave glitches with Assistant and reminders .
It's not the best time to have an Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch on your wrist.&nbsp;The other flaw has been hanging around for a while. Android Wear users have had problems with Android Wear falsely markign recurring reminders as completed, and this was supposed to have been fixed in a patch. However, users report that they're still missing reminders -- in at least some cases, the patch did nothing. That's not exactly heartening if you want reminders to take medicine or pay your bills.
