We can now say with this update that the Nexus 5 is almost fixed out of it’s flaws though battery life is almost still the same.
By speeding up the framerate and increasing how quickly the camera can read its surroundings and fire a picture we have been able to make the camera experience better says Google’s Director of Engineer Burke. This is really a good sign as for the first time we have seen Google listen and address the camera issues in almost 5 weeks.
Samsung just patented a Transparent Display technology that would enable users to interact with touch interaction from the back of the phone. Right now, there are no obvious indications that Samsung’s working to deliver a system like this in a Galaxy smartphone anytime soon.
The new and enhanced so-called Type-C connector would be of almost the same size as a microUSB used on current phones only with a number of enhancements. Major ones include faster charging and a lightning-like ability to choose what way you use.
These connectors would start rolling out next year by Q2 and would be incorporated by phones later after.
Over the course of the last few months, rumours about the Apple testing varied versions of the future iPad are increasing.
The entire rumour cloud boils down to two common and strong leaks that say that two variants may finally see the light of the day out of the 5 sizes being tested. While one would have a 2K display (presumably the same 2048 x 1536 resolution with which we’re already familiar), one could have a 4K screen.
The 2k iPad would have a density of 200 ppi while the 4k for the same 12.9 inches would have a 400 ppi – the highest for a tablet.
Various sources say that what looks like an incremental KitKat update has been seen in server logs, running on the Nexus 5, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.
A Website(Link below) says that Server Logs and Analytics show few Nexus Devices running Android v4.4.1 Kitkat with IPs tracing to Google’s stomping grounds in the Bay Area. This means Google is already testing these builds.
In addition to that the famous HTC Rom developer LLabTooFeR has also tweeted details about Android 4.4.1. Apparently the HTC One Google Play edition will get Android 4.4.1 “in the near future,” as firmware version KOT49E.
It is still to early t rely on these leaks and updates as less than 10 % of Android Devices have Kitkat 4.4 running on them.
HTC was bought to the court of law by the Finnish Manufacturer, Nokia which said that HTC has infringed it’s “modular structure for a transmitter and a mobile station” patent.
Nokia had achieved a sales ban against the One smartphone line in the UK before, forcing HTC to change the radios and microphones inside the One as quoted by reliable sources.
Well the rumours surrounding Samsungs 2014 line of smartphones just dont seem to drop their share. Cameras have become an integral part of the decision making factors and Samsung is making sure they win the game here.
We have been hearing about Samsung making the ISOCELL sensor for better imaging and then came the not-so-good news stating that Samsung might be ditching OIS(Optical Image Stabilisation) for the future Galaxy S5.
While Megapixels do not guarantee better quality, Samsung just wants to up the numbers and heat up the race here. Either ways, we are very sure of the fact that Samsung has plans to bring a better quality sensor and is going all out on R & D for their upcoming flaghsip device.
The HD2 continuous to get enormous amount of community support which means that it can now run Android Kitkat 4.4. Folks at XDA Developers once again shows the world that the device is still evergreen. Being a very gently ageing phone means that it doesn’t come with all the bells and whistles.
Thing that dont work include the SDcard , WiFi, Data connection and the Camera.
Gone are the days when comparing the top 2 widely used Operating Systems had significant differences between them to write about.If Simplicity and intuitiveness is what you seek than iOS might be your perfect companion. If a Robust with expanded options, Android is a winner.
While it’s also not new to see the guys behind the biggest companies talk directly to consumers, this is just more well layed out than ever. Eric Schmidt, former CEO and current Chairman of Google, has written a post on Google+ aimed at helping the less technically sound folks to switch from iPhone to Android.
While the LG G2 may be the big bulky brother of the Nexus 5 but it’s users still have to wait till Q1 2014 – LG Canada Quoted. That said, it is now not a rare phenomenon to see OEMs delaying updates. Now that consumers are getting used to this, social media too is no longer flooded with complaints.
Android has come a long way in terms of usability, but the updates need work. Bottom line, if you want a phone that is pretty easy to use and guaranteed updates for at least 2 years, get a Nexus. Only devices that come close are the Play edition phones and (lately) unlocked Motorola phones.
