The iPhone SE is really just an updated version of the iPhone 5 with superior hardware and added features… and there’s nothing wrong with that! The truth is, the iPhone 5 was a fantastic design for a four-inch smartphone that didn’t really need any drastic fixing. This post over at Droid Life got me thinking about what other older phones out there deserve to have their own iPhone SE-style remakes in which their external designs would remain completely the same but their internal hardware would get a big boost. Below are my top four picks. More →

Smartphones from 2013 that are still awesome two years later

It’s one thing to recommend a new phone to someone — but what do you say to someone who doesn’t want to pay top dollar and is willing to buy an older phone? Looking back on it, 2013 was an unusually good year for smartphones that have held up over time, which is why we’ve decided to make a list of three phones that came out two years ago but are still great to use two years later.

Nexus 5 2015 Pricing Structure

I think I’ve figured out how much the new Nexus 5 will cost

I think I’ve figured out how much the new Nexus 5 will cost

Recent leaks have suggested that Google’s 2015 Nexus 5 handset will be a lot more affordable than last year’s pricey Nexus 6. While actual pricing details have not been offered by sources familiar with Google’s plans, there have been indications the phone will have sub-flagship specs, which generally means it’ll be friendlier to your wallet just as the original Nexus 5 was back in 2013.

However, a brand-new smartphone announcement made earlier today has given me a pretty good idea of what the new Nexus 5’s pricing structure will be. Why, you ask? Because this new phone has the exact same specs that are rumored for the next Nexus 5. More →

New Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 cases leak, seem to confirm one major new feature

Thanks to numerous leaks we already know a lot about Google’s upcoming new Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 devices. They’re made by LG and Huawei, and they should be launched this fall as soon as Android 6.0 Marshmallow is ready for mass consumption.

Considering that Google’s new mobile operating system brings support for some major new features, it seemed obvious long before leaks actually started coming in that the new Nexus handsets would pack specific hardware to take advantage of the new Marshmallow features, and a pair of new leaks have confirmed the presence of a fingerprint scanner on both devices.
