After a long, long wait, the Nexus 6 is finally available in Malaysia officially. First appearing in SIRIM’s database about five months ago, the pure Android smartphone will retail for RM2,199 here. Interestingly, the recently announced Nokia 105 seems to have reached our shores as well.
Google seems to have something interesting planned for its 2015 Nexus devices. A recent rumour circulating the Internet is indicating that there will be two Nexus smartphones made by LG and Huawei this year. Curiously, the rumour is also indicating that there will be no Nexus tablet for 2015.
If you’re a Nexus 6 owner, you might want to take note. Several owners of the flagship Google device are apparently experiencing signal issues. They are reporting that no mobile data connection is available on their device and rebooting the phone only fixes the issue temporarily. This sure doesn’t look good.
It appears that the Nexus 4 will also be receiving the Android 5.1 Lollipop update, which is pretty surprising. As the Nexus 4 was released back in November 2012, it wasn’t supposed to receive any further update as it has passed the 18 months update window set by Google itself.
If you own a Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 device and have not updated to any version of Android 5.0.X Lollipop yet, don’t hit the update button or attempt to flash it. Multiple users of these two Nexus devices are reporting that any Android 5.0.X Lollipop update is bricking their device. It appears the Android 5.0.2 […]
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.
Most of us are aware of the rather weird dimple on the back of the Nexus 6, but ex-Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has revealed that it was meant to be a fingerprint sensor. This indicates that even Google considered incorporating the technology that was made popular by Apple.
The Nexus 6 is quite a difficult smartphone to get your hands on currently due to stock shortages, but this latest issue with the phone could deter potential buyers. Multiple users of the Nexus 6 have reported that the back cover is popping out, revealing the innards of the smartphone.
Google is definitely hard at work this festive season. We have reported just last week that Android 5.0.1 Lollipop is available for the Nexus 5, and now, Android 5.0.2 Lollipop for the Nexus 7 2012 – the very first Nexus 7 model – has been made available on Google Developers’ website.
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 […]
Google has joined in the fray to deliver the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its phones. The update is being pushed today to Nexus devices, right after the update for the LG G3 and Moto X started rolling out earlier this week.
At Google I/O few months ago, Google shared its vision of the entertainment in the living room through Android TV. Fast forward to today, the first device to run Android TV is now here in the form of the new Google Nexus Player which is manufactured by ASUS. It is also the third new Nexus device […]
So, Nexus 6 is not the only new device that Google has announced alongside the brand new Android 5.0 Lollipop today. There is also the brand new Google Nexus 9 which is a tablet made by HTC.
Always wanted to download a launcher for your Android phone but don’t know which to pick? Well, here’s one more for you to add to your list as Google makes its Google Now launcher available for almost all Android devices.
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. As far as estimates go, the tablet appears to have slimmer bezels and is comfortably held with one hand, which implies a possible 8-inch screen – a new screen […]
