According to a latest report by Chinese website MyDrivers.com, the next HTC flagship device will be getting a 5.5-inch screen, and not the 5.2-inch screen previously reported. The resolution is still expected to be 2560 x 1440, so there would be a slight drop in pixels per inch. The rest of the alleged specs match what we have already heard, including a Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a 16 MP OIS-equipped camera.
Lastly, a 3500mAh battery is believed to feature on the M9. Like the previous models, you can expect it to be of non-removable. The M9 will have Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. Does this get you guys excited? Sound off in the comments!
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!
If you ever wanted to buy a OnePlus One, but were unable to obtain an invite and you happened to miss out on the few preorders that were available, today is your lucky day. OnePlus has decide to sell their OPO phone's, both the 16gb silk white and 64gb sandstone black version without an invite for Black Friday! The 16gb version will only set you back $299 while the 64gb version will only set you back $349. For anyone unfamiliar the OnePlus One comes with Cyanogen Mod preinstalled and has plenty of high end specs including a Snapdragon 801 Quad Core Processor, 3GB of RAM, 5.5" HD screen, 3100 mah battery, and a 13mp 6 lens camera. Head to the link below to take advantage of this opportunity.
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.
