If you own a Nexus 5, you’ll be happy to know that Android 5.1 Lollipop is now available for the smartphone via OTA. This is especially useful for users who are not familiar with ROM flashing or those who just don’t want to risk bricking their Nexus 5 smartphone.
In the latest rumour surrounding the next Nexus smartphone (or in this case, smartphones), Huawei and LG will apparently be manufacturing a Nexus device of their own, giving consumers the choice of two different Nexus smartphones. Turns out our previous post regarding a Chinese manufacturer building a Nexus smartphone has some truth to it.
The next Nexus smartphone from Google might just be built by a Chinese manufacturer. All Nexus smartphones to date have always been developed by established brands outside of China, such as LG, Motorola, and of course, Samsung. If the successor to the Google Nexus 6 will be coming from a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, it could indicate a shift in […]
The Nexus 6 has showed up in SIRIM’s database, indicating that a Malaysian launch is very likely for the new Nexus device. Being the first Nexus smartphone with a flagship-level asking price, it marks Google’s new pricing strategy.

Android 5.0 Lollipop introduces full device encryption, and for those who are receiving the update by OTA, it won’t be enabled by default. However, devices shipped with Android Lollipop, such as the Nexus 6, will have the encryption turned on by default. In benchmarks done by AnandTech, it seems that full device encryption comes at the price […]

The latest Google Nexus smartphone, the Nexus 5, has a high chance of not making its way to Malaysia – at least not officially. Hence when we spotted the Nexus 5 on display at Sandisk’s MWC 2014 booth, out came the camera for a quick hands on session, on top of a comparison with the […]
Google may have just teased its upcoming tablet. The Apps and Entertainment page of Google’s official Android webpage shows a picture containing a mystery Android tablet.
