The update of all updates is finally available for DROID Turbo owners, that being the update to Android 5.1 Lollipop. It’s been a long time coming, and frankly, I’m sure a few owners figured it was never coming.
We are seeing loads of happy Turbo owners reporting from across the country that their device is receiving the update, so it is safe to say Lollipop is now live for all. (more…)
The official YouTube application for both Android and iOS flipped a switch this morning, allowing mobile viewers to watch select videos in 60fps. I say select videos, since not all videos on YouTube are uploaded at 60fps.

Last year, we posed this same question, asking which display size our community preferred. Taking a look at the results, we find that the majority of our readers prefer a 4.6″-5″ display, with the aforementioned range dominating the field at 55%.
Interestingly enough, we asked that question before the release of Shamu, aka the Nexus 6, with its 6″ display. Now, with that device and other phones available with monstrous-sized displays, we should see a different outcome to the same question, given that we surely do have a few Nexus fans here.
As for me personally, I like an easily manageable 5″ display size. If I need something more, I’ll just grab a tablet. I don’t want to stretch my fingers anymore than I have to.
For this poll, select your preferred display size range, then comment below with your perfect size. If you see your size posted already in the comments, vote it up.
