Nexus's Everywhere!!!



In spite of the Hurricane Google went ahead and announced there new line up of Nexus devices.... one word.... Drooling!


Firstly lets start with the Nexus 4 , the newly announced Nexus phone from Google, yes, this phone can and does compete directly with the iPhone 5! Check out the specs below:

Full specs:
  • Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 Pro processor with 1.5GHz Quad-Core Krait CPUs
  • Operating System: Android 4.2, Jelly Bean
  • Network: 3G (WCDMA), HSPA+
  • Display: 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS Plus (1280 x 768 pixels)
  • Memory: 8GB / 16GB
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Camera: 8.0MP rear / 1.3MP HD front
  • Battery: 2,100mAh Li-Polymer (embedded) / Talk time: 15.3 hours / Standby: 390 hours
  • Size: 133.9 x 68.7 x 9.1mm
  • Weight: 139g
  • Other: Wireless charging, NFC

Now looking at all these specs, we were all expecting a £500 price tag as we always get with these high end smartphone... BUT Google smashed the pricing wars and priced the 8gb at £239 and the 16gb at £279

These prices are CRAZY and are half of what you would pay with the iPhone 5! and in my opinion your getting a better phone!


Moving on to the next Nexus device, we see the Nexus 10 , which, as we guessed is a 10 inch Nexus tablet 

Now im just going to go ahead and post the specs below and let them dazzle for a second:

  • Display: 10.055” 2560 x 1600 (300 ppi) WQXGA, HD PLS w/ Corning Gorilla Glass 2
  • Dimensions: 6.99 in (177.6 mm) x 10.39 in (263.9 mm) x 0.35 in (8.9 mm)
  • Weight: 1.33 lbs (603 g)
  • Camera (Main): 5MP, 1080p video
  • Camera (Front): 1.9MP, 720p video
  • Memory: 16 GB or 32 GB
  • Processor: Dual-core A15 Eagle
  • GPU: Mali T604
  • RAM: 2GB
  • OS: Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
  • Battery: 9,000 mAh Lithium Polymer
  • Wireless Dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (MIMO+HT40)
  • Dual-side NFC (Android Beam)
  • Micro HDMI
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Bluetooth
  • Sensors Accelerometer, Compass, Ambient light, Gyroscope, Pressure, GPS
  • Standby: up to 500 hours
  • Music playback: up to 90 hours
  • Video playback: up to 9 hours
  • Web browsing: up to 7 hours

Make note of that AMAZING resolution , and YES , that correct, it beats the iPad4s "retina" resolution and PPI ! This is a tablet with "the highest resolution on the planet" 
The dual core inside this thing is also the strongest SOC that money can buy at the moment! 
price stands at £319 for 16gb and £389 for 32gb.. again this price point smashes the iPads price, and you get a higher res screen 


Lastly , we knew about the Nexus 7 before, but now they have released a 32gb model and a model with hspa+ ! so get your data on if you want it! 

the nexus 4 and nexus 10 are to be released on November the 13th! so keep an eye out!

iPad Mini ------ Disappointing!

So Apple finally released the iPad mini yesterday , and man, am i disappointed!




This thing is basically the ipad 2 , but smaller, 

SPECS

-7.9 inch 1024 x 768 - 163 ppi
- A5 Dual core processor
-5mp rear camera 
1.2mp front camera
weight 308 grams


not only are these specs down right boring and bland, but the price for the cheapest model comes in it a $329 !!!!

I thought they were trying to compete with the Nexus 7 , but with that price point, i think its silly!

LG Nexus Leaked Photos!


lg-nexus-bottom-leak-630

So its all but confirmed that LG will be making a Nexus phone, and its probably this! so what do we think?
This is a pre-production model and on the back it says hardware revision v1.0 so it is possible that this is not going to be the final build

It should also be noted that its running android 4.1.2 not 4.2 ... so most likely this android version is going to be very small consisiting bug fixes and things like that.

Another Nexus Rumor--- LG OPTIMUS G Nexus?!

                                

Alright guys, here we go again..... Now this has been rumoured to be the next Nexus device.... Anyone else get the feeling that we are seeing alot of rumours from alot of different OEMs... maybe these are the 5 nexus devices that were rumored earlier in the year..

Either way, if this comes out, ill be very excited...  SPECS-

-S4 PRO (quad core)
-2gb ram
-720p display
-adreno 320 graphics
-IPS+ HD display
-13mp camera


There is also rumours of the next iteration of android 4.2 (jelly bean? or keylime pie)

Most likely, its going to be an incremental update, project butter v2 etc... but interestingly it may have a "customization centre" where you can choose stock android, or another OEMs skin... useful ? who knows but customization is always a nice choice to have.

Another "feature" is they may be modifying the home screens to be "tabs"... now that is as little as i know about it, so your best guess is the same as mine, but lets hope they don't ruin home screens as its such a massive feature of android and has been there since day one

I can bet anything we will hear something solid about the next Nexus, or Nexi if you will in the next 30 days... so watch out for that !

iPhone 5...... What Apple missed out

So the iPhone 5 is finally here, here are a few things we know will definitely happen.....

1) It will sell 20million+ in the first month
2)Ifans will love it no matter what

Now i am not going to slate the next gen iPhone because i think Apple make good hardware and good products,
Im also not going to paint every Apple user with the same brush, a lot of my friends are Apple users and they dont idolise a phone!
however, its very annoying when Apple "fanboys" say its the perfect phone and there is no way it could be better.... well if that were true, why do you buy the next one every time!

You may also remember the argument that all Apple fanboys  swore by, in that 3.5inch was the perfect size... blah blah blah... sorry to tell you then... but your beloved company has bumped up the screen size to 4inch! so obviously they thought different ...

Anyway... Check out my youtube video on the 8 features that the Apple iPhone missed out on:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDg6xleRRfU&feature=player_embedded







Apple Lies about the iPhone 5 






Ok, Ok , so its not as dramatic as the Title seems, but its still valid!

In the keynote apple touted that the iPhone 5 is the thinnest smartphone in the world.....  it seems they did not do their research!

Now the phones that are thinner are not exactly the iPhone Killers .... infact you may not have heard of them at all 


Model                                                                                Thickness                    Weight      Availability
6.7mm
125g
Soon
6.7mm
105g
Yes

Both These smartphones are thinner than the newly announced iPhone 5...
And although these are not the best devices in the world, they are still thinner ! so the claims are false!

               Iphone 5 Announced ! 



So we finally have the next generation Iphone to ponder over ....

Specs

-4 inch IPS 1136 x 640 Display --------- 326 PPi
-1gb ram
-8 megapixel Camera ( New sensor)
-720p Front facing camera . 1.9mp
-LTE 
-Dual-band Wifi
-NanoSIM
-112grams
-123.8x58.6x7.6mm

They have also changed the dock connector to  smaller "lighting" port ... great for transfer speed.... bad for all your old accessories... you will now to to hand over more cash to buy an adapter!


Let me know what you guys think, is it worth the upgrade? 
is 4inch enough?

Has Apple forgotten how to innovate?

The floor is yours!

Link -



Apple officially schedules event for September 12th!




Although not officially confirmed as the Iphone 5 Event , we are all but sure this is what is going to be announced .

If you look carefully at the official image above, you can see the 1 and 2 of the 12  casting a shadow of what looks to be a 5.... 
This all but confirms that we are going to see the Iphone 5 on September the 12th.

What we expect / Rumours

  • Larger display... around 4 inchs
  • Retina display
  • CPU will probably be the new A5x that is in the "New Ipad" 
  • IOS6 which is accompanied with a host of new features including a new and improved siri 

Im sure Apple will also have a surprise up their sleeve.... 

Can the Iphone 5 beat out the galaxy s 3s 20 million sold mark!
Time will tell.....





Galaxy Note 2  announced!


Spec

   - 5.5 inch, Super AMOLED display
   - 1.6ghz Exynos quad core processor
   - 2gb of ram
   - 16/32/64 gb internal storage
   - New S-pen!








This powerhouse is due to be released in Europe on October the 16th for around £550
 The phone comes in two colour options, Titanium Gray and Marble White,

Here are a few numbers from the leaked benchmarks.... Impressive!

Cpu Benchmarks

Quadrant - 6043
AnTuTu  -  13562

Gpu Benchmarks

GLBenchmark 2.1 Pro ( offscreen)    - 144 fps
GLBenchmark 2.1 Egypt ( offscreen) - 105 fps


The Note 2 also scores the best of any handset available at the moment in the sunspider browser test with a score of 972ms compared to the galaxy s3 1304ms.... Lower is of course better ... to put that in comparison my M15X laptop scored 228ms.



Initial impressions show that the galaxy note 2 is going to be a hit!
