I’m still very tempted to switch to iOS – here’s what Google could do to pull me back

Earlier this month, I wrote about my extreme frustration with the Android upgrade process. Essentially, I do not understand why it should take more than six months (and counting!) to get the latest Android software out to a flagship phone that’s been released within the past two years. When my two-year carrier contract expires in September, I will be buying a new phone off-contract and the iPhone 6s is going to look very tempting. However, there is something Google can do to pull me back from the brink: Release a 2015 version of the Nexus 5. More →

The clock is ticking on Google’s classic Nexus 5 [updated]

Google has recently launched the Nexus 6, its best and biggest smartphone to date, but the device is also pretty expensive when purchased for full price, especially compared to previous Nexus models.

The world has Android 5.0 fever, and while most Android device owners will have to wait until next year at the earliest to get Lollipop on their phones and tablets, enthusiastic Google fans don’t have to wait another minute.

To further show how big the Nexus 6 really is, Phone Arena compared it to every Nexus handset ever made, from the original Nexus One to last year’s Nexus 5. More →
