The 9to5Google top Android smartphones of 2013

To say that 2013 has been an interesting year in the world of Android would be putting it mildly, but has it really been a banner year? The release of Android-oriented products like Google Glass, Google Hangouts/revamp of Google+ and the beginnings of Google Retail led the way for a whole new approach for Google […]

Why won’t I be buying the Nexus 5? The camera

When Google’s Vic Gundotra promised “insanely great cameras” on upcoming Nexus devices, we took his statement to heart. Now, with the release of the Nexus 5, early reviews of the camera are decidedly mixed.

New tech will give boost to Nexus 5 battery, but don’t go streaming your heart away

There’s no question that with every new smartphone release, we look at the camera, the display and ultimately, the battery.

Android 4.2 manual install now available for Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7

Google is updating Nexus devices to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean via an over-the-air update today.

Those with the GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus, who don’t feel like waiting for a rollout, can grab the firmware manually from Google’s servers now, while the v4.2 ROM for the Nexus 7 is also available.

Galaxy Nexus owners need to download the “takju” ROM (.zip), and then install manually or use a ROM Manager. Nexus 7 owners have a similar process: download the Jelly Bean update (.zip), and then manually install or use a ROM Manager.

As SlashGear noted, ClockWorkMod’s ROM Manger in the Google Play Store is a free and easy solution. However, if the above steps confused you, just wait it out. The update will land over the next few days.

Review: LG Nexus 4 — a world class smartphone for $300

Honestly, when I heard the Nexus 4, the long-rumored LG entrant into the Google-phone legacy, was going to come sans LTE, I almost threw in the towel.
