Google’s lineup of Nexus devices are very popular among Android purists, and according to a report, Google will apparently take the “Apple approach” with the Nexus program. The report mentioned that Google wants more control over its own program, which may see a change in direction for the lineup.
The Nexus series of smartphones have always been a favourite of many Android users, especially so for Android purists. Back in the days when custom versions of Android were slow, sluggish, and filled with bloatware, Nexus devices were exemplary, mainly due to their pure Android experience. Now, however, custom versions of Android have caught up. Many manufacturers have […]
What was once a lineup designed for developmental purposes is now one of the most popular series of Android smartphones. Over the years, the Nexus series of smartphones has evolved in many, many ways.

Don’t fancy the new Nexus 6P or the Nexus 5X, but still want a pure Android device? Then you’d want to be quick to grab yourself the 6P’s predecessor, the Nexus 6 by Motorola.

Android head Hiroshi Lockheimer confirmed that new emoji are on the way to Android, with Nexus devices receiving the update next week.

It seems like the Nexus 6P is plagued by one issue after another. After failing the bend test (twice), users have reported that the back glass window – the visor of the rear camera – has “spontaneously” crack. Things are not looking good for the first-ever Nexus device from a Chinese manufacturer.
Remember the Nexus 6P bend test that went viral? Well, now there’s a follow-up video from the very same YouTuber. After the first bend test garnered many negative responses, he decided to do the test again with a brand new Nexus 6P. The outcome? Not pretty.
Recently, a torture test performed on the Nexus 6P has become rather viral. In the video, the 6P was subjected to scratch, fire, and of course, bend tests. Surprisingly, the device was able to be bent rather easily; almost too easy. Is the Nexus 6P that fragile? Well, not quite.
Seems like the Nexus 5X isn’t off to a very good start. On Reddit, a handful of users who have just received their unit of the brand new Nexus device are not thrilled about the display. According to them, their Nexus 5X’s have a very yellowish screen.
If you’re worried that the Nexus 5X would be costly to fix if something were to happen to it, you can rest easy now. A teardown of the new Google smartphone has revealed that it is pretty easy to repair, although certain parts have to be replaced together.
Google Photos is updating with new features to allow users more control over their photos. These features focus mainly on the ability to better share the photos with friends and family, but also includes a way to make sorting through hundreds of photos quickly.
Google has officially unveiled one of the two Nexus devices today, the Nexus 6P. Made in partnership with Huawei, it is the first all-metal Nexus device. Other than that, Google has emphasised a lot on the 6P’s camera, going as far as to say that it is the best camera it has put on a Nexus device.

The slides basically revealed all there is to know about Google’s latest Nexus, including a generous 3,450mAh battery and a premium construction.
The specifications of the Huawei Nexus have possibly been confirmed thanks to benchmark results from GFXBench. Unlike its smaller sibling, the 2015 Nexus 5, this Nexus device from Huawei will pack a bigger and sharper 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 resolution display.

As we approach closer to the end of the year, we’re getting a more detailed look at the much rumoured 2015 iteration of the Nexus 5. This time around, it came from none other than Marques Brownlee aka MKBHD. Appearing first in Nexus Indonesia Google+ community, this could be our first glance of LG’s new Nexus 5.
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.
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.
