HTC Nexus 9 hands-on video

No more messing with wires, cords and plugs – your tablet just snaps into place on the magnetic face and begins charging.

LG Nexus 5 leaks again

LG Nexus 5The anticipated LG Nexus 5 could well be the device that Android fans are waiting for and is expected to be the pinacle of Android smartphones.

As we get nearer to the launch date of the LG Nexus 5 more leaked images and data are appearing on the web. The latest leaks now come from a member of the MacRumours site who claims to have a new Nexus 5 in his possession and has gone a step further taking photos and providing commentary on the device.

The photo, that you can see above, shows a large camera, Nexus logo and and almost graphite colour back.

The poster “Weespeed” states that he thinks the Nexus 5 feels smaller than the LG G2 and feels close to the Nexus 7. He then goes on to say that the display on the Nexus 5 is just “Ok” and doesn’t feel as high in quality as the Galaxy Note 3.

What we understand of the Nexus 5 Specification is that we can expect a 5-inch full HD display, 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, at least 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 8-megapixel rear-camera, 1.2-megapixel front-camera, 2300mAh battery, wireless charging, LTE and NFC.

We know that there is a Google event to be held on the 15th October where they are going to offically announce Android 4.4 Kit Kat so we expect that the LG Nexus 5 will follow close behind that event and will also feature Google’s latest Android OS.

Google Nexus 4 review

Google Nexus 4 reviewThe Nexus range was one of the first instances where software heavyweights enter the market to produce their own hardware to complement that of the traditional manufacturers which has proven to be a popular move ever since the Nexus One. With the Google Nexus 4, Google have collaborated with LG to bring a successor to last year’s popular Galaxy Nexus from Samsung. While that was certainly a great phone it was not without its flaws, and the fourth iteration of the Nexus phone has received some well deserved hype and praise from the media and passionate users.

In fact the combination of a stock Android device with top-notch specs and a heavily publicised launch meant the number of launch customers was grossly underestimated, as Google only had the (modest) numbers of previous Nexus devices to go on. This lead to a huge supply issue; it was almost four months after the first launch before it readily available from the Play Store. It may not sound like too long, but in a market where new devices supersede older ones each year, that’s a good third of the Nexus 4′s lifespan.

So is the Nexus 4 actually worth the wait? Read on to find out.
