The larger of the Nexus variant specs now revealed. Noticeable specs is that it is now 5.5" QHD screen from 5.7". Looks like 5.5" has become the sweet spots for phablets ie big enough but not too big like the Nexus 6.

Biggest negative I see here from previous Nexus devices is it looks like no more front dual speakers which I know will bum a few people on here. I have a feeling it will be taking on the model of the HTC 10 speaker set up.

Those are the only significance chances IMO. All the other specs is the usual
4gb ram(some may complain it should be 6gb)
32gb and 128gb storage models(no 64gb)
12mp cam and 8mp ff cam(fingers cross ois included)
3450mah battery
Quad core 82x variant CPU (Could be anything from 820-823)

The biggest take away from this rumoured story is that both the small and big Nexus will be pretty much identical and the only difference is the screen size and resolution and battery capacity otherwise design and specs will be same in the same vain as a z5 compact to z5 or a iPhone to a iPhone plus.

Was let down badly with last year's Nexus devices so hope these leaks are real and we do get 2 nexus devices which the only real difference is size and what's goes with having a smaller device ie smaller battery etc but same spec. Hopefully these leaks are real and I believe they are as AP is rather credible with there leaks.

Hmmm not sure what to think about the rumoured spec of the smaller Nexus . For the most part it's what I expected but seeing devices like the s7 have 3000mah battery, I'm hoping the same is for the smaller Nexus device. I'm fine with 1080p display but am surprised it's not 2k considering Google are fully pushing vr headsets where higher PPI matters and I do plan to get a daydream headset so yeah. Also let's hope 32gb isn't the only version especially when we know it won't have expandable storage.I'm hoping Google don't let us down again as they did with 5x but I have a feeling they will.

G5 will get you 5h sot. The secret is 6.0.1

Otherwise a power bank.

Am curious to see whether the next nexus will bump charging current up to 4A like the 1+3 or whether they stick to 3A like the current nexii.

Looks like a great device. £310 for 6gb ram,64gb storage,s820 is bargain . Too bad they dont make a 5" version . Oh no invite and available right away. Looks like one plus have finally learned their lesson that no one likes a invite system. 
OnePlus is finally ready to join the big leagues with the OnePlus 3. Gone are the days of justifying missing features with a cheap price, and no longer can we give it a pass for its upstart-style of operation. The OnePlus 3 is the real deal.

+Adrian B Bummed that they still doesn't put SD card slot for their flagship, but looking back my phone usage a few months back, I'm starting to see that I don't really use that much storage. Granted it's more because I didn't go out and get higher capacity card (currently have 32 GB one on my Redmi Note 2, and 64 GB was reportedly working but have to reformat it to exfat 32), so that's why I don't really store that much locally.

That said though, with no invite system, it's highly attractive to me. It's either this or the ZTE Axon 7. Leaning more towards the latter tbh, because front stereo speakers and card slot.

Apparent leak of the HTC m10. No onscreen buttons(I think option of onscreen will be available so win win), no HTC logo and no unsightly big black bar. If HTC deliver on the camera I could be interested.not sure about the massive chamfers on the back. Looks a bit too much. Also home button not being centre isn't my thing too. 
Some more images leaks and information have made their way to the Internet, reportedly showing off the HTC 10, the rumored successor to the HTC One M9 smartphone

+john doe I'm not dismissing the m10, just saying I don't have high hopes for HTC camera going by there past record but I'm happy to be proved wrong by them. For me the m10 needs to at the minimum match the s6 cameras for me to even consider it that's all I'm saying.

Lol this guy would do anything for clicks and just is one insecure guy when it comes to apple. Without a fault every single time Samsung releases a phone he has to write a negative article about Samsung's new device. Even his own readers have had enough of this and are destroying him in the comment sections not just in this post but others. Think people are finally seeing if you want objective writing this guy ain't it. Literally every single year it's the same shit over and over again from him, even some of his own colleagues have had enough and have written articles that make him look like a fool.
How I know it's his insecurity, well it's always about Samsung or Google whenever he writes his pathetic posts. If sony release a phone or Motorola or HTC he rarely writes anything because he sees no threat but the moment Samsung release a phone his all over writing articles after articles. Ive seen fanboys but his taken his fanboyism for apple to whole other level. I don't think there's anyone that can defend him and say his not a fanboy in anyway.

Guaranteed note 6, s8 next year will see similar articles from this guy that's how obvious it is. probably has these articles lined up each year lol

Have to say I am impressed. Some very innovative idea with the modular design. Big question for me is how have they improved there software. Current lg ui is my most disliked android skin. If they have improved that I might be interested but then again the size might be above my comfort level.

What i like, metal build, removable battery and SD card,finger print sensor. The phone even looks better than those leaked renders though still not 100% in love with the design but it's not bad by any means.

What I don't like is that it's taller than the g4 but has a smaller screen. You know I'm all about slim bezels. Also as I said possibly the lg skin if it's not changed much.

Good job lg on the unibody design and the ability to keep removable battery. Reminds me of the Sony k750i which wasn't a modular but had a flap like design at the bottom where the battery would slide in and out and allowed the phone to keep its unibody design. Always wondered why OEMs didn't opt to do something similar today. Well finally lg has and took it to the next level.
 
The G5 is now official, with a 5.3" QHD display and modular metal body.

It’s official – the LG G5 is here. After months of hype, LG took the stage today in Barcelona to unveil its flagship “G” phone for 2016. The phone, because leaks are such a part of this world these days, is in many ways what you expected. I think it’s safe to say that LG …

Once the photos the g5 can make come out people will forget about the looks.

The s7e is the one to get if you want more battery. There will not be any e+ nonsense this time

Possible new touchwiz leaked for note 7. Video is not in English but it's not difficult to see what's changed. Biggest change seems to be the notification and settings panel. Like the new notification shade, unlikely will see it on the s6 and if we do its probably not till end of the year. S7 probably get it in October.

Again this internal beta so we might not even see this in release. Would have liked to see a built dark mode though not a biggie as there's plenty of dark themes and also would have liked to have seen a night time mode ie when the screen tone becomes more yellow. Might already be in the beta and user just didn't show it.

If this is final and most likely is , I do like it. Seems like it's just moving tw more over to the minimalistic look.

Lol how is this happening. Android has software update issues but this should not be apart of it. How does any OEM release a device in mid 2016 with KitKat, budget or not this is a joke. Seriously does Google not have a rule in place that any new devices released must atleast run with a android os released in the last 12 months as a minimum. I would go as far as any new devices released now must come with android m. If you can't even control this then it's a lost cause.
At a media event in New Delhi, Honor rolled out the 5C, a budget phone with a metal-backed design and impressive hardware. The vendor also launched the T1 7.0, a 7-inch affordable tablet with a WSVGA resolution (1024 x 600), a 1.2GHz quad-core Spreadtrum SC7731G processor, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

One way of clearing component stock, I guess. Don't Huawei make their own processors?

So what do you think the upgrade cycle will be of the iphone se or do you think this will just be another one off experiment like the 5c.
Also if the iphone se is now a long term part of apples line up do you think it will be updated yearly or maybe every 2 years.
And do you think apple will continue to use iphone 5 design as its only design for the small iphone for future se versions.
Finally do you think this is a one off mid cycle update and apple plans to merge the small iphone line with the fall release so in the near future we will get 3 iphones in the fall all with same design and close enough spec.

Onto the ipads. With the release of the ipad pro 9.7" what does that mean for the ipad air line. Will we still get a ipad air 3 at $499. Imo the ipad pro mini seems like what the ipad air 3 would have been in terms of spec updates but instead apple have changed the name and are charging more.

A quick brief look at android N.

Looking good to me, should make my move to a Nexus phone easier.Seems like there's a lot of things from tw and custom roms that I've become accustomed to for years. Things like having a row of toggles in notification, being able to arrange them,split screen apps(though tw still allows more options in this regard). It's why I always say to stock lovers who call for the death of skins, Google themselves get many ideas from skinned android so to want them to die all together is stupid because they offer insight into what may be coming your way.

Also funny than just as I get m on s6 android n is announced. Luckily most of the new things added in android n is already in tw as I said so it's not so bad but im sure there will be more shown off at i/o. Oh is that a app draw I see there lol. Damn people have been going crazy over the app draw supposedly being removed. The same people who use launchers anyways so I don't get why they are moaning when they just put on Nova or something.

Having said that I have had a few thoughta on the whole app draw thing myself. IMO if Google do remove the app draw which is a big if to begin with. I don't think they will remove the concept of the app draw. I've been thinking a good place to have the "app draw" is in the recent apps section. So imagine this. There is no more app draw button but when you tap the recent apps button you see a list of your last used apps like you do now already but what if there was a button in the corner or bottom ie like samsung have the all clear button but instead it will say all apps which will then show all your apps. That way you also have quick access to all your apps within any apps as it's behind the always on recent apps button. What you lot think. I personally would love to see that but hey then again it is my idea lol.

Sorry just getting some frustrations out.

I've decided for now not to get a s7, like the phone a lot but I know exactly what will happen. I will be frustrated over the software updates or lack of and how can I go buying and supporting there next phone when I feel like they are treating there current phone which I have shit.

What Samsung have shown me with the s6,note 4 etc is they are just not bothered. Which is nothing new but what really pissed me off was that they released the android m update to the s6 range in the UK about 10 days ago. One would assume that a unlocked phone would get the update 1st like every other oems unlocked phones. Instead Samsung are releasing it to carrier locked phones 1st before unlocked phones from what I'm seeing in the comment section of sammobile. Now what's even more perplexing is they used the unlocked phones to beta test the latest update but when it's finally complete they leave them hanging. In my eyes it's simple what's going on here as I have assumed for a long time. Samsung and carriers are in bed nicely together. Now I just need a good small phone running android with a amazing camera and screen. Nexus 5 premium be real lol so I can move to a different OEM. Literally the hardware is whats keeping me currently with samsung.

I know I know , many will say there's no big difference between android l and m but that's not my point really. When I had the s2,s3 which were unlocked devices I got the updates 1st as I would have expected. S4 things got a little slower but since then it's just been backwards where unlocked phones get it slower than carrier variants. I can only assume some deal is in place with the carrier's. You push our phones in store and we will update your phone 1st as one of many perks . some bs like that probably is on there contracts small print lol. I have no other answer why unlocked devices are being treated like 2nd class.

My other theory is they are releasing it to carriers 1st because they know those s6 owners are locked in a 2 year contract so unlikely to get the s7 so might aswel just give them the update. Where as if you have a unlocked device chance is you brought it sim free so there's a chance you might get the s7 so my guess is unlocked devices will get android m sometimes after the launch of the s7.

+Taz Hoque​​​​​​​ isn't this what you wanted ?

Imagine a world where Samsung can have its vision of Android, while keeping the deep system processes untouched. That would mean that Samsung or Google could push out changes to their separate parts of the system far more easily (and much faster) than they can today without interfering with the other half of the system. The manpower alone that this situation frees up means more people are available to work on making the Samsung experience better without having to worry about the underlying Android code.

http://www.androidcentral.com/moving-forward-what-we-can-learn-android-n-developer-preview

Reason it hasn't happened yet is it requires an extra level of indirection. That means adding an extra layer which would not be as efficient given hardware constraints up to now.

But as cpu's get more powerful and memory more plentiful the desired decoupling becomes more feasible. if what Jerry writes there is true there is some pretty major rejigging going on under the hood whose benefits will only become apparent post N.

Put another way the OS allows low level hooks that improve performance at the cost of maintainability. Your primary argument here is why should it be so difficult (it is) for samsung to maintain their firmware.

Interesting look at what the g5 could have been and all the stages it probably won't through to what we see now. 
Smartphones go through a lot of stages before they're finally birthed. And a good number of those stages — much like most of us at one point or another in our lives — are filled with awkward moments.

Gsmarena managed to get some shots off so we can check out the camera.

http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_mwc_2016-review-1382p2.php

The second camera wider angle camera uses a f2.4 aperture and produces shots in 8 MP. This is an odd choice for aperture because it means the second camera is at a three quarter stop disadvantage to the primary. Surprisingly there isn't a large difference in the shutter or iso between both images.

Can do the same with any camera if so inclinedby pivoting around the lens nodal point, take 4 shots and stitch them into a high resolution image. The g5 will do it with one click and be seamless. It looks to be 120 degrees horizontal as well as vertical for fov.

They even managed to do a comparison with the g4. Not surprisingly there isn't a whole lot of difference other than colour saturation. Specs wise it's the same sensor which is what LG did with the g2,g3 & g flex 2.
