While the "new hotness" in the Nexus world is the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P, that doesn't mean the "old hotness" has lost that much "heat." The Motorola made Nexus 6 is still a top-notch smartphone, especially for folks who prefer the larger screen devices. That makes deal alerts like this especially tempting.

A seller on eBay is offering Refurbished versions of the Unlocked GSM 32GB Nexus 6 for just $269.99. That's a phenomenal value if you are unconcerned about it being refurbished. For those undaunted, here is the link to check out this offer on eBay: Factory Unlocked Motorola Nexus 6 XT1103 Smartphone 32GB 64GB White Blue

For those who are still hoping that OnePlus can grow to become a solid Android competitor, this latest leaked intel should prove interesting. It looks like the OnePlus Mini is deep into development, and we already have leaked pics and specs.

You can check out all three leaked pics in the thread below (and one above), and the specs revealed are as follows:
  • 5″ 1080p display
  • MediaTek processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 13MP rear-facing camera
  • NFC
What do you folks think? If OnePlus can get their supply chain and customer ordering process issues ironed out, can they get back in the game?

Google's vice president of Android engineering, David Burke, has high praise for LG. In a recent press conference he had this to say about Google working with LG on the Nexus devices, ""LG Electronics is the best partner for us in engineering the Nexus smartphones. We share the same approach to the mobile device market with LG Electronics. Our engineers really like to work with the people at LG Electronics. Together they have become an excellent team."

This should probably come as no surprise considering LG has made 3 Nexus phones in a row. So now that LG has managed a three-peat, do you think next year (or a subsequent year) will see a fourth LG-made Nexus device?

Here's our dedicated section for both Nexus 5 variants:

Although it's not as good as several third party file manager apps you can find on the Google Play Store, it turns out Google surprised us with a "hidden" file manager app built-in to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. You have to wonder why they haven't included anything like this until now (and why they tucked it away without any fanfare), but it's better late than never.

To unlock this "secret" feature, you only need to go into Settings, then go to Storage and USB, and then tap on Explore after scrolling to the bottom. It offers a "list view," a "grid view," and some basic sorting, searching and filtering. There's not much else, but it gets the job done at a basic level.

We started hearing murmurings of a Droid Turbo 2 device from Motorola way back in the early months of the summer, but now we have proof that this device is on the way. The Droid Turbo 2 will be rocking a 5.5" QHD display, Snapdragon 810, 3GB of Ram, 20MP rear facing camera, 5mp front camera, Turbo Charging, and Android 5.1.1.

Some of the build.prop files have leaked out clearly showing that this is indeed the Droid Turbo 2.

We have a flagship device, but with those specs this may be too little too late from Motorola. Maybe we are seeing Motorola make good on some sort of exclusivity deal they had with Verizon. Turbo sales last year were meek so who knows why Motorola has decided to go with a second version.

We should see this phone along side the new Droid MAXX 2 releasing later this month just in time for the Christmas season! The...

Amazon just released a whole new generation of Fire tablets just after killing off the Fire phone. The biggest draw of these tablets is the extremely low price. Amazon doesn't have to make money on these tablets since they are hoping you will end up buying lots of stuff off Amazon with the fire tablet. Of course since they are hoping you will use their tablet to buy apps, music, movies, and goods Google Play services is not included with the tablet. Why would they give you access to their main competitor?

More than likely if you are someone interested in an Amazon Fire tablet you are probably someone who is already invested in the Android echo system. With no access to the Google Play store you would need to re-buy your apps through the amazon app store. Then again you could just install the Play store to your Fire tablet. This used to require root access, but thanks to some quick development work from "sd-shadow" you can get the Play Store on your fire tab without root! RootJunky put together an install.bat file which will do the whole process for you. Head to the link below for full instructions and download links....

Spotify just updated its official app in the Google Play Store. It now supports Chromecast streaming but unfortunately will only work for the all-new Chromecast and Chromecast Audio for now so first gen Chromecast owners will have to wait a little longer.

PepsiCo China, the parent company that also operates Frito-Lay and Gatorade among other properties, is seemingly preparing to release an Android phone dubbed as the P1 under its soft drink brand’s name and will debut on Oct. 20 in Beijing, according to MobiPicker.

The P1 will allegedly have a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display, MediaTek processor with 2GB of RAM, 13MP / 5MP cameras, 16GB of internal storage, and Lollipop. The battery providing energy for everything is 3000mAh. The best part about the P1? It is said to cost $205 in China. But don’t expect the Pepsi P1 to be available around the world; most of these peculiar devices tend to remain in Asia.
