Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Google Nexus 4 ready to roll out

  We have got some good news for all you Nexus 4 users out there. Google in an official statement have announced that the Nexus 4 would soon be getting the much awaited and the highly anticipated Android 5.0, Lollipop update. The device was initially left out of Google’s plans but after a lot of hue and cry from what seemed to be a large number of Nexus 4 users, Google later rectified their mistake and later clarified that the Nexus 4 would most certainly be getting the update soon.     An Engineering Program Manager at Android has shared on Google+ that build LRX21T is “locked and loaded” for the Nexus 4. He states that the update will be coming “soon,” but he’s not sure exactly when that will be. Even though the dates have not been disclosed as yet, we can only hope it’s sooner rather than later for all of you Nexus 4 users. Let us know in the comments section below as soon as soon as you guys start receiving the OTA update. Cheers...

The Google Nexus 6 – Google’s Ultimate Android Beast Has Finally Arrived

The Google Nexus 6 – Google’s Ultimate Android Beast Has Finally Arrived

Usually when Google is set to make any major announcement whether its related to a new Google product or any Google Android device for that matter, its usually done with a lot of pomp and show. That wasn’t the case this time around when the US based tech giants finally raised the curtains on the much awaited Nexus 6 smartphone running on Android 5.0 – Lollipop, Google’s latest entrant in its long running Android family. Since months we had been hearing rumors about the new Nexus device and what we might expect from it. Personally speaking I’ve been a huge Nexus fan myself. Not only because of the vanilla Android experience, a Nexus device has managed to reserve a special place in my heart. Google’s latest member to enter into the Nexus family has been manufactured by Motorola and is by far one of the most powerful Nexus devices that we have ever laid our hands on. Trust me when I say this, the Nexus 6 is indeed a beast of a device !! The phablet sports a massive 5.96” 2560×1440 QHD AMOLED display (493 ppi) bundled together with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SOC Quad core Krait 450 2.7GHz CPU, 32 and 64GB internal storage, 3GB RAM, NFC, an ambient light sensor, a powerful 3220 mAh battery with additional Qi wireless charging support catered together with a Turbo Charge feature that promises to run your new Nexus device for 6 hours on a 15 minute charge and 24 hours of use from a full charge. This new feature would definitely come in handy mainly because of the device’s massive screen size as well as the powerful specs. The one complaint that Android users had over the years was mostly related to smartphone batteries that used to run out within half a day of usage but with the Nexus 6, Google have promised to work on this nagging issue and hopefully it has now been fully resolved. Moving forward with rest of the hardware, the Nexus 6 features a powerful 13MP rear shooter with optical image stabilization, f/2.0 aperture, a dual LED ring flash (similar to the one found in Motorola’s flagship device of the year, the Moto X) and 4K video capturing capabilities at 30fps.  On the front you will find a pretty decent 2MP camera perfect for selfies and video calling. Google have also taken into their stride to deliver the perfect audio output and in doing so, have equipped their latest flagship device with two quite powerful front facing speakers. The Nexus 6 would be made available in two color variants, Cloud White and Midnight Blue.     Coming towards the software side, the Nexus 6 is one...

Android 5.0 Lollipop – A Sweet New Take on Android

Android 5.0 Lollipop – A Sweet New Take on Android

Google has finally made it official, the much awaited “Android L” is…*drum rolls please*… Android 5.0 Lollipop. Not only that but Google also announced the Nexus 6 made by Motorola, Nexus 9 made by HTC and Asus’s Nexus Player. We had received a glimpse of the new operating the system at Google I/O earlier this year and couldn’t wait for it to get officially released. Now that it is finally here, lets get straight into the nitty gritties! Material Design Android 5.0 Lollipop, as its called has visually been modified quite a bit (much to our hearts content) thanks to the Material Design language used. A lot more bolder colors, new icons and animations breathe new life to the look and feel of Android. The multitasking has been given a very nice overhaul, resembling the Tab switching in Google Chrome. Not only does it look more beautiful, it has become much more fluid. Notifications Next in the list of changes is the new notifications, specially found on the lock screen. It includes the ability to hide sensitive content for these notifications. You can control which apps are allowed to pop up notifications, either you can prioritize them, hide sensitive content or turn them off completely. If you are watching a movie or playing a game, incoming calls are no longer a bother, a notification will slide down where you can either accept the call or ignore it. This way you will not get disturbed from what you have been doing. Project Volta It helps better manage batter life, with Android 5.0 Lollipop you now get a nifty battery saving mode. This function extends the battery life for 90mins longer. Also, the time left for the charge to be completed is also shown, which is quite handy, if you are like me looking at the percentage every 15mins. New Quick Settings The quick settings panel which was introduced with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, has received a much needed change. Now the quick settings toggle displays the most frequently used settings first, then the rest if the list. Now straight from the quick settings menu you can control the flash light, hotspot and cast screen controls. Pretty handy no? Device Sharing Google has taken the use of cloud storage to a whole new level. Now as Google does back up, your contacts, photos and messages, you can access them from any device running Android 5.0 Lollipop. You just need to log in to your own profile on nay phone and you access all your info which has been backed up. There is a nice little feature called “Guest User”, where you can just allow the content...
