omg, this is soooooo amazing!hugo wrote:Hold conversations using Google Translate (CNET)
As Google I/O draws near, just two days away now, the rumor and expectation mills are churning at full force. The latest expectation is that Google will bring two new Nexus phones to market this year, but no new tablet is on the immediate horizon.
These rumors sound fairly plausible, we have already heard that Huawei is building a Nexus phone, a 5.7-inch monster with code name Bullhead. I’ll leave you with the previous coverage for more details, but we expect to see the device later in the fall with the Snapdragon 810 SoC and a nice big 3,500mAh battery.
The new phone rumor is for another LG built Nexus device. Clocking in with a 5.2-inch display, the LG Angler looks like it may be fairly similar to the LG G4 with the Snapdragon 808 SoC. Speculation is early on this one though, specs are bound to change, and many components have not been chosen yet. With the general idea being that this LG phone is the proper successor to the Nexus 5, we do not expect top rung specs, just an overall solid experience.
Finally, do you like your Nexus 7 or Nexus 9? I hope so, since you may be stuck with it for another year before another Nexus tablet is introduced. We can always hope for a surprise, but at this point, there are no Nexus tablets in the rumor mill. Although the Nexus 7 has been removed from the Google Store, the Nexus 9 is still up for sale, offering you a solid Android tablet experience and the latest version of the Android OS (finally.)
I think I’ve mentioned this, these are purely rumor at this stage. We can’t help but send you over to Android Police where this new rumor of an LG Nexus phone comes from.
Stay tuned for more to come, we will be on the ground at Google I/O 2015, May 28-29, that’s Thursday and Friday in San Francisco. We hope you are as excited as we are to see the next chapters in the history of Nexus.

I do like the Moto x, but the camera is such a letdown not to mention the battery lifeShayLaB wrote:http://www.motorola.co.uk/
Big reductions on the Moto X currently. Not sure if similar deals where you are.
Your only option shall be Z3/Z3 Compact or the rather oldie Galaxy S5. Those are the best droid phones with steller battery lives.hugo wrote:I sold my Nexus 5. I'm still unsure what smartphone to buy next, I really like the Z3 Compact, but the OnePlus One 16GB version is super affordable (if only it wasn't sold out), the Nokia 930 is my other option, or the G3, but I want something with stellar battery life.
And you better be! The glass on the back and front is always prone to be broken due physical and thermal shock! The net is full of the stories of broken glasses... and sony is so weak at servicing. You are also likely to lose the water resistance even after the glass change too.hugo wrote:Z3 is still a little too expensive for me, and I love the compact's form factor a lot more, I'm just scared the glass could break easily.
I hate to admit but even the Google Play Store fails miserably to the glorious yet simple Apple Store.... apple's store is brilliantly streamlined and easy to use but Google Store is a mixed up experience while tons of irrelevant crappy "games" do pop up on the "applications" charts....such haphazard setup is never seen on apple store.. and on the main page the highlghts are placed horribly all together.jpguy wrote:Has anyone tried Google Play Music? The streaming service is so horrible, so difficult to use, so buggy, so much inconsistency in the recommendations, they got nothing on Spotify ... poor Google
The LG-made Nexus is coming at the end of the month and it will be slightly more expensive that the original Nexus 5.
A person who is familiar with the matter has briefed Android Authority about Google and LG’s plans for the new generation of the Nexus 5 smartphone. The source warned us that this information is not final, and as such, official details may differ, but we feel very confident in the veracity of this report.
First up, our source confirmed that the new Nexus will be made available in the Google Store from September 29. Both the LG Nexus and the Huawei Nexus will be offered at this point. This confirms a recent report from CNET, as well as an older rumor from Korean media.
The LG Nexus will probably go under the Nexus 5X moniker. We say probably because a decision on the final name has not been taken yet at Google HQ. That name makes a lot of sense: it allows Google to keep its “Nexus #” naming convention, while signaling that this is a new device in a much more intuitive fashion than by adding a “(2015)” or “(2nd gen.) suffix.
Next up, we can confirm that the leaks that have been making the rounds showing the design of the Nexus 5X are accurate. The device will feature a circular rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, along a raised camera and the dual LED flash on the side.
The Nexus 5X will be available in white, black, and light blue, and will feature a plastic back and a USB Type-C port.
Perhaps the most important detail we gleaned from our source is the price of the Nexus 5X: the device will be affordable, but not as affordable as the original Nexus 5. The Nexus 5X will cost $50 more than the Nexus 5, according to our source. That means we can expect a starting point of $399 for the 16GB model and $449 for the 32GB model, assuming Google has decided to stick with 16GB for the base version.
Again, this is non-final info so do not take it for granted just yet. That said, this is a very solid source, so we fully expect this info to pan out.
