Google announced yesterday that it has finally released Android 7.0 Nougat. Now it’s going to be a long wait for most Android users as they wait for the update to go through their OEMs and carriers before it’s finally released for them. However, those who own Nexus devices will get the update immediately. There are a couple of Nexus devices that are not eligible for the update to Nougat and […]

The advantage to buying a Nexus handset is that you’re kind of buying a phone from the same company that makes its operating system. This means that in terms of support you can contact Google, and also future Android updates are more or less guaranteed to make its way to your handset first.
When Google released the developer preview of Android N, the handsets and devices with the software included the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, the Pixel C, and the Android One handset. Missing from that list is the Nexus 5 which was released back in 2013, making it a 3-year old device.
When building Nexus phones, Google does not manufacture the handsets themselves. Instead they turn to their various partners in the Android industry who will then typically bid for the right to make Nexus devices for the year. So far we have seen Nexus handsets from the likes of HTC, Samsung, LG, Motorola, and Huawei.However it would seem that out of all the handset manufacturers, Google seems to think that LG […]

A new report has been published today which claims that LG’s new Nexus handset is coming later this month, apparently it will be called “Nexus 5X” and it will be slightly more expensive than the original Nexus 5.

Now Google had stated that they planned to start off slowly and at the time of launch, they stated that only the Nexus 6 was the only phone that was supported.Apparently this is because of the hardware used that allows […]
When it comes to camera performance, it really isn’t a secret that Google’s Nexus lineup of phones aren’t that good. While the photos captured by the Nexus handsets are passable, they’re definitely not on the level of Apple’s iPhones or Samsung’s Galaxy S-series, but hopefully they will be more functional after the latest update.Google has recently updated the Google Camera app on the Google Play Store which will basically target […]
Not too long ago Google released the Android 5.1.1 update for the Nexus 9, Nexus 10 and the Nexus Player set-top box. It was only a matter of time before this update was released for the smartphones, and the LTE variant of the new Nexus tablet.

Android 5.1.1 has already been rolled out to quite a few Nexus devices and it appears that the next in line to get this update is the Nexus 5, seeing as how Sprint has updated the support page for this handset to reflect that it will soon receive the Android 5.1.1 update. Recently said update was released for the Nexus 9, the Nexus Player and even the Nexus 10 tablet.

Usually with updates to software, developers try to address any bugs or issues that were present in the previous version. Unfortunately it seems that in the case of Android 5.1, Google has yet to address some problems that are still plaguing handsets like the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7 which are no doubt rather annoying for its users.The issues in question are related to memory leaks in which after […]
