Finally, it seems that things are changing in the world of Android phones. And this change is mostly coming from the lesser known manufacturers. Heave manufacturer skinning is giving way to cleaner, pure Google interfaces – the way Google intended Android to be.

In the past we could only find this on Nexus devices, but now many companies have heeded Google’s call to keep the modifications minimal, the latest of which is ZTE. This may actually be a very significant shift, as ZTE is not a small player these days. ZTE says it will feature the Google Now Launcher on its phones. (more…)

All fans of stock Android, rejoice! It seems that we will be seeing a new Nexus smartphone, even after all the talk that the programme has been cancelled and that it has been replaced with Android Silver.

Some rumours pointed towards the device being called the Nexus 6 (as it is the 6th Nexus smartphone and also rumoured to have a 5.9 inch display), but it seems those were incorrect. Today we’re seeing reports that looks to shoot down these earlier rumours, as the Motorola built phone will be called the Nexus X. (more…)

Beautiful bracelet doubles as charger for your devices

Q Bracelet

It finally seems as though we are taking a step in the right direction when it comes to wearables. Instead of bulky and quite frankly, ugly wearables, companies are beginning to release that in order for these wearable to sell, they need to look good, too.

And this is exactly what the Q Bracelet embodies – a beautiful, sleek design paired with a really useful piece of technology.

Besides looking good, the Q Bracelet is in actual fact, a wearable charger that will charge your Apple or Android devices.

The bracelet has a built-in lithium-ion battery that has the ability to recharge your smartphone up to around 60%. The battery on the bracelet itself has a standby life of about 30 days and will take 90 minutes to recharge.

A lightning adapter for Apple devices and a micro USB adapter for Android devices can be found inside the bracelet’s clasp. This eliminates the need for any extra cables, as you simply plug the bracelet straight into the phone.

There are also small LED’s above the connector that will indicate the charge level of the bracelet.  (more…)

Some people have likened the choice of which iPhone variant to choose to something a bit more dramatic to reality, but we can understand their opinions. With Apple blindly sticking to the ‘no expandable storage’ mantra, some have said that the price difference between the different storage option isn’t quite worth it with Android devices offering expandable microSD slots which will cost you a lot less.

Usually the 16GB model is akin to other flagship phones when it comes to price and the larger storage options much pricier than its competition. (more…)

With the release of Android Wear open up a whole new world of possibilities for the wearable market and until now we have only seen a couple of companies take advantage of it. One of them is LG, with the release of the LG G Watch.

Media impressions have been patchy at best, with the entire industry looking to the Moto 360 to be the saviour of public opinion when it comes to Android wearables. The 360 will most likely be revealed at IFA 2014, but it seems that LG will try to take advantage of much of the hype coming from the 360 with a circular smartwatch of their own. (more…)
