More than half of our readers aren't tuning into the Olympics this year

There is still plenty of time to get in on the action.

What you need to know

  • We asked our readers if they were tuning into the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
  • More than half said they weren't interested in watching.
  • Some of those that said they're tuning in are in support of athletes taking a stand against racism, while other readers are not.

After a year delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have kicked off, and more than a few events have already taken place. We even got a look-see at the gift bag that Samsung provided for all 17,000 athletes, which included the Samsung Galaxy S21 Olympic Edition and a pair of the best wireless earbuds on the market.

We wanted to know if our readers were tuning in to catch the games since plenty of apps are available on the best Android phones for users to tune into their favorite events like Olympic skateboarding, which has the women's park skateboarding final today and men's tomorrow. Our results show that more than half of you aren't tuning in to support your country at the games. Roughly 1/4 said they're watching, while a small percentage said they'll catch some of the events.

One reader, Tony Bag o Donuts, said that he enjoys viewing the different events. "Watched team handball and table tennis this morning. I like the different sports." And while not everyone holds the same belief, some of our readers are very supportive of athletes who choose to stand against racism. 1raygin says that he'll be tuning into the Games and that they "have not but respect for an athlete who chooses to take a stand against racism."

One reader was less enthusiastic about the games. Adonest76 says that he couldn't care less about the Olympics and that events such as these are just a way for cities and countries hosting to get money. He says these events "are always sold with promises of large infrastructure spending, public transit projects, social housing, etc. These promises remain just that... promises...far from ever seeing the light of day."

The poll may be closed, but we would still like to hear your thoughts about the Olympics and if you have found any of the events interesting so far.

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . So you'
