In experience the Nexus 6 is super quick. It is rocking a Snapdragon 805 Quadcore processor clocked at 2.7GHZ, 3GB of RAM, and is not bogged down with an OEM skin. It runs pure AOSP Android 5.0 Lollipop and should destroy any benchmark that stands in its path. The above video shows a pretty pathetic score for such a premium device when compared to the scores of similar devices like the Note 4. This could be a result of the enabled encryption which is reported to slow down the device a bit. This could also be a product of OEMs gaming the benchmark system. Like I stated earlier the Nexus 6 outperforms the Note 4 by a long shot in actual day to day use, so in the scheme of things the quadrant benchmark doesn't really matter.

One of the best Wallpaper apps around "500 Firepaper" has been updated! This is said to be a minor update, but works out some bugs such as enabling hardware acceleration by default, and an issue was fixed that prohibited some users from installing the pro app on secondary devices. The app now includes some Adroid L theming for any one who is currently on Android L including colors and animations. There will be more theming in the app in the coming weeks. For those who are not familiar with the app, it refreshes your wallpaper throughout the day with new images from 500px. You will see new and fresh images from around the world. No more boring static homescreen! Head to the link below for the download. If you already have the app the update should be rolling out at any moment.

I fought the crowds last night at the "Day before black friday" sales. I got a few toys for the kids, but the best deals are actually the ones online today! The LG G Watch is virtually $49. When you consider that it was released for $229 this is an awesome deal. Today the Google Play Store has the G watch for $99 and you get a $50 Google Play credit. So you are basically getting this device for $50! It should be mentioned that this is the original Android wear device from LG, and it is not the best looking aesthetically, but this is the perfect gift for the Android and Tech enthusiast. The LG G Watch R which is the newer better looking "round" version of the watch is full price, but you do get the same $50 Google Play Gift card. This would be a good opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. A watch for you dad, and $50 of Google Play for yourself. Head to the link below to take advantage of all of the Play Store deals!

Smart watches are great and can be super functional. They save your phones battery life by allowing you to check notifications on your wrist, and are super convenient keeping you from having to take out your phone every few minutes. The only real setback so far has been the inability to see screen especially in sunlight. Sony will be releasing an E-Paper Watch. At first glance this seems to be a step backwards. It won't have any "Smart" functionality, but will instead rely on its sleek and minimal design to attract buyers. If you want something different and unique but don't want what is essentially a small tablet on your wrist this could be the perfect watch for you.

Phones are getting bigger and bigger all the time. The newest Nexus come with a whopping 6 inch screen! Other phones like the Note 4 and LG G3 are on the same line. With bigger screens comes more screen real estate which means we can be better immersed in our media. This also means we have to deal with sore thumbs, and can also mean we may eventually have to deal with broken screens from cumbersome phones that slip out of our hands while trying to reach to the other side of the screen.

Samsung has done a pretty good job of including one hand modes in their phones since the release of the Note. One handed mode shrinks the screen and allows you to reach the entire screen without having to maneuver the phone around in your hand. MIUI, one of the premier roms of today, has released a new one handed mode in version 6 of their rom. You can find this mode on Xiaomi devices produced by MIUI. You can also now find this feature in the latest updates of the Rom for your device making your new phablet easier than ever to use!

If you are going to be flashing Roms on the Nexus 6 you will want to always be sure to make a full Nandroid backup prior to installing your Rom or mod. A nandroid backup makes a complete copy of your phone's current state. This means text messages, call logs, apps, and all data will be totally backed up. If something goes wrong when flashing your mod you will always have a safe restore point. This is also a good way to run multiple roms. You can flash a rom and back it up then flash another and back it up. Then you will able to go back and forth between them. You will need to be rooted with TWRP installed. Links for both are included in the video's description above. Be sure to subscribe to our youtube channel to be notified when more guides like this are uploaded.
