Boom! Here's +CyanogenMod 11S on the OnePlus One!

The UI looks very minimal and very clean. If you're not a fan, no biggie. Just visit the theme engine and select as little or as much Holo as your heart desires.

EDIT: +Carl Pei posted a screenshot with software keys. AWESOME.

#HOLOYOLO   #Android   #OnePlusOne  
Earlier tonight we saw a supposed leak of the upcoming OnePlus One. The leak included press renders of the phone, a variety of back covers, and supposedly depicted the phones upcoming UI. Carl Pei of OnePlus took to the official OnePlus forums moments ago to put an end to the rumors running rampant this evening.

Moto G was just the start; Motorola shooting for $50 smartphone

Back in January, Motorola's CEO Dennis Woodward said that the Moto G was just the start. Woodside said that for as cheap as the $179 Moto G is, that's still expensive for a lot of consumers. He thinks that Motorola can do a lot better, mentioning a $50 smartphone.

Well smartphone fans, enter the XT1022. These specs could be the upcoming cheaper variant that Dennis had mentioned, rumored to launch next month.

Specs:
4.3-inch display
1.2GHz dual-core processor
5MP camera
1GB RAM
4GB internal storage
1,900mAh
Android 4.4 KitKAt
Remember that rumor that Google might soon release a $100 Nexus? Well, a new lower spec'd Motorola phone is reportedly coming soon. Could these rumors hint to the same device?

Some good detail but also some grid patterns in the noise. Very hard to work with that in Photoshop. Not good.

+OnePlus One camera shots. Okay. I'm impressed.

Still no word if the 1P1 will rock Qi charging. If it does, this might just be the perfect phone.

Glass Teardown reveals a new sync settings coming and more

In the future you'll be able to manually upload / sync all of your photos from Glass without having to find WiFi or a power outlet. If you're mobile and wish to view your Glass photos on a larger screen or edit them prior to sharing, that's going to get a whole lot easier.

AP also found that some day the Glass display might turn on simply but looking at it. This method seems much better than having to cock your head back, which can sometimes be a bit annoying if you move around like a crazy person when talking ...like I do apparently ;)

Moonshine themed icons you say?

Earlier this week, we got a supposed sneak peak at Google’s upcoming icon changes for a future version of Android, dubbed internally as Moonshine. If you’re anything like me, after seeing Android’s upcoming Moonshine UI icons, you’ve been drooling to get that sexy, flat design on your Android devices. 

AW YIS!

Galaxy S5 Review

When Android's #1 OEM puts out a product, we direct our watchful eyes in their direction... unless it's Galaxy Gear, then we run away as fast as we can. I haven't had a chance to use the Galaxy S5, but it looks like a heck of a nice phone to me. I'd never personally use it as a daily driver because I dislike Samsung's UI. That's my personal choice. The hardware though, I can't see anything wrong with it.

There's a lot of phones coming out right now... Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, Oppo Find 7, OnePlus One, Sony Xperia Z2...which one will you choose?
Our complete Samsung Galaxy S5 Review and video breaks down every detail of the S5 and helps you decide if it's the phone for you. From hardware and specs to software and new features like the finger scanner, heart rate monitor, and weatherproofing- it's all here!

Flying 3D mapping Project Tango Spheres - Awesome

The goal: to integrate a Project Tango prototype onto a robotic platform, called SPHERES, that flies inside the International Space Station. The SPHERES program aims to develop zero-gravity autonomous platforms that could act as robotic assistants for astronauts or perform maintenance activities independently on station.
