Android N for Nexus 5 appears on Google developer site
Google released its first Android N preview this week, offering a first look at the company’s next big software update. Android N is currently limited to just a handful of devices, but it looks like we may be able to add one older handset to the list. A page from Google’s Git repository for Android N reveals a version of the preview for the Nexus 5. The device is listed here by its...
Nexus 5X vs Nexus 5 spec shootout
So the Nexus 5X specs aren’t a huge improvement over what we saw a few years ago. But that was never really the point anyway, was it? Instead of the latest and greatest, the Nexus 5X is meant to provide buyers with solid hardware and a smooth software experience—all at an affordable price. Despite the minor jump in specs (can we just get over it?), the Nexus 5X has improved in other...
Android 5.1: Here's everything that's new in one handy video
It might not appear to be the biggest update in recent memory, but Google's Android 5.1 is actually pretty substantial. The arrival of Lollipop late last year was a big shift for the platform, and easily the best and most beautiful version we've seen to date. But it wasn't without its problems—some of them pretty major, too. That's where last week's update comes into play. Most of the...

Google just unveiled the Nexus 6, its latest smartphone to offer a pure Android experience. We’re curious, though, how does this year’s device stack up to the Nexus 5? Thankfully Google provided us with plenty of juicy details on the new hardware, so we can compare the two devices on paper. To us it looks like a pretty darn big upgrade from all angles, the screen is larger and sharper...
Nexus 6—or Nexus X: Five Things We Want
Just about every rumor said Google planned on killing its Nexus lineup. Turns out those reports might not be true. In fact, it sounds like the next Nexus smartphone—probably the Nexus X—could be the best Android device this year. Better than the G3, better than the Note 4; the one phone to rule them all. While there have been some vague rumors over the past month or so, a picture of...
OnePlus One vs. Nexus 5: Battle of the Affordable Heavyweights
Chances are you’re eyeing up the Galaxy S5, LG G3, iPhones 5s or HTC One (M8). All very good, very capable devices, and we should be so lucky to own them. But with an average price of $200 on a two-year contract, and hundreds more off, getting the latest technology is never cheap. So what’s a phone aficionado to do? Luckily there are some excellent alternatives out there; the unsung...
Top 5 Android Smartphones - July 2014
Wow we've had a busy couple of months, haven't we? The last time we brought you our Top 5 Android Smartphones was three months ago, back in April, when we had a few entries that were brand new to the market, like the HTC One (M8) and the Galaxy S5. Technology doesn't slow down, though, and neither do we.

LG Nexus 5 vs. iPhone 5s - Mobile Madness
Yesterday's match-up between the LG G2 and the iPhone 5c ended up with the the G2 absolutely crushing the 5c. The vote came down 76 percent in favor of the G2 vs. the iPhone 5c.

Up today we have a match-up of two flagship devices, the Nexus 5...
LG Nexus 5 vs. LG G Flex - Mobile Madness
Yesterday’s match-up was not as close as our previous one. The iPhone 5c garnered just shy of 70 percent of the votes and the Nokia X+ pulled in 30 percent. While it is nice to see more solid offerings in the budget Android market, like the Moto G and now the Nokia X family of devices, it is obvious most of our fans want to see a more complete Android experience and a device with some...
Top 5 Budget Unlocked International Cell Phones for Travel
One of the really compelling trends from CES 2014 was the introduction of brand new phones that offer decent specs and features for super affordable prices.

These are unlocked devices, and phones that we think serve as great complementary phones to what...
