Are you a big spender or a thirty consumer when it comes to your phone? We break down the pros and cons of two of the hottest Android phones, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the OnePlus 5

Despite the price difference, the phones are pretty competitive, which made for a lively debate. 

Also, would you pay extra to ride in a bus that can promise you a good night's rest? We take a look at Cabin, which is trying to redefine the idea of buses as a form of comfortable transportation. 

Lastly, we talk about sex dolls and artificial intelligence. And no, we're not talking about "Westworld."

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by the CNET News team in New York and producer Bryan VanGelder.
