There has been a bit of controversy regarding USB-C cables/chargers. Unlike micro-USB which has been around for a while, USB-C is still relatively new which means that some OEMs are getting it wrong in terms of being compliant. Unfortunately it seems that some of those problems might have spilled over into Google’s Nexus handsets.
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.
Last month Google introduced Live Cases for their Nexus handset lineup.

It has been a while since Google came out with new Nexus-branded smartphones so naturally the world is looking forward to the new handsets. There have already been all sorts of rumors and leaks concerning the new devices even though nothing has been officially confirmed as yet. Google hasn’t even confirmed which manufacturer it’s going to select to build the new Nexus smartphones, it has worked with the likes of LG, […]

Few things are more personal to us than our phones these days and Google recognizes this fact, so it has come up with a new […]
