We recently shared 5 reasons you should buy the DROID Turbo 2, but today, we will share 5 reasons the Nexus 6P should be your next smartphone purchase. The point is, and we emphasize this, there are a ton of great phones to choose from this holiday season. 2015 easily has the best lineup of Android devices for purchase we have ever seen, so we are making it our job to make sure you get the right phone for your needs. If you skipped our Nexus 6P review because reviews are too long, and ain’t nobody got time for that, let’s lay out what makes the Nexus 6P so darn good.
Here are five quick reasons the Nexus 6P is worth buying today. (more…)
Over on Twitter, the official Android and Nexus accounts are teasing upcoming deals for Black Friday, but unlike all other companies, Google is opting to keep it a secret. We love a good mystery.
While we have no clue as to what Google intends to do, we can have a bit of fun speculating. For Android, it’s possible that there will be significant savings to be had on Google Play for apps, music, movies, and books. This seems like a given. For Nexus, is it possible Google will cut the price of its current device lineup for a limited time? Or maybe, if you buy a Nexus device at the regular price, Google will throw in a free Chromecast or $100 of Google Play credit. That seems a bit more likely. (more…)
What if Google were to go the Apple route for its next smartphone? That would be controlling the entire process, from designing the chipset used to the entire manufacturing process and design of the body, alongside development of the software it runs. According to The Information, the search company is currently having internal discussions about this topic, though there isn’t exactly any word on Google signing off and moving forward. (more…)
According to a report out of CNET, Google plans to unveil two Nexus phones on September 29 at an event in San Francisco. Their sources claim that Google has partnered with LG to make a smaller Nexus phone and Huawei to make a larger Nexus phone. Rumors, of course, along with a number of leaks, have suggested the same for weeks now. (more…)
Thanks to a couple of posts on Google+, we may have our first look at the upcoming Huawei Nexus, codenamed “angler.” The device appeared in the hand of some sort of tester, with photos showing the phone’s front and backside, USB Type-C port, and boot screen that gives us a hint of the specs.

After issuing a quick update to build MPA44I (well, new images) that followed the initial release of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow Developer Preview 3, Google is now starting to roll updates out over-the-air (OTA) to compatible Nexus devices. We have a running list of the .zip Preview 3 OTA updates for your Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Nexus Player (soon) below, in case you either didn’t get prompted to update your device or didn’t feel like messing with the factory image files. (more…)
Just last Friday, we may have got our first glimpse at what to expect from the LG-made Nexus device for 2015, followed by an actual photo of the supposed device this morning. Now, the same is being done for the Huawei-made Nexus smartphone, as 3rd-party renders have been made from measurements sent out to case manufacturers. (more…)
Long before devices ever fully materialize in public form, case makers get detailed dimensions and “schematics” of them to help build accessories that are available just as the phones they are made for, launch. We see this made public all the time thanks to companies who post teaser imagery of their upcoming cases, even though the phones they were built for haven’t been announced. The media gets all giggly and hypebeasty about it, claiming “Leak! Leak! Leak!” yet they often times only represent a shape of what the phone could be and rarely show a leak of the actual phone.
And that brings us to today’s topic, the LG Nexus 5 (2015). (more…)
