Great commercial spots highlight Google Now, Hangouts and Google Play Books

If there's one thing that Google is great at as of late, it's commercials for its products. Whether its showing off the power of Gmail, Google Search or its Nexus devices, it always knows how to hit your emotions in the right way. The latest two commercials, titled "Study Hall" and "Best Friend" keep up its "Made for what matters" series of commercials, showing what you can actually do with the Nexus 7.

The first commercial, shown above, is a short 15 second spot showing a college kid using Google Now for reminders and search, as well as buying a book through Google Play.

Hit the break for the second commercial spot, and have a box of tissues ready — Google knows how to tug at the heart strings to sell a tablet.

Nexus 5 Images Show Up from Russia

First we get a Nexus 5 video from France, now we get new images from Russia. These images come from G+ user Anton Kuznetsov, and he gives us a nice look at the next Nexus. Nothing really has changed from the other images we have received, but with all this Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 leaked […]

Nexus 5 appears in clearest leak yet, gets the full hands on

It sure looks like the next Nexus in this 7 minute hands on video 

Looks like we've all got a little weekend treat here. What this is, apparently, is a full 7 minute hands on video with the LG Nexus 5. We've been seeing and hearing things for the past few weeks, but this is the clearest view yet at what we're expecting to be Google's next Nexus phone. The video is plastered with smartphones.sfr.fr whom it appears we have to thank. 

We've not had chance to digest it all yet, but jump in and take a look for yourselves in the video up top. Early thoughts are that it shows the phone to be running Key Lime Pie, so it's likely an older build of the software and doesn't show us anything new. Also, on the hardware front, the large Nexus logo we've seen repeatedly in previous leaks on the rear of the phone seems to be missing, So maybe this is an earlier prototype of the hardware too. That, plus the "not for sale" sign on the back would indicate this probably isn't a retail unit we're looking at. What do you think of it all? 

Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 Get a 7 Minute Hands-on Video!

All the big leaks seem to be happening on the weekend lately. The Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 just showed up in a 7 minute hands-on video giving us a real good look at the new phone, as well as Android 4.4. There is no talking in the video, and you will notice a different […]

Alleged Nexus 5 images show Android 4.4 KitKat interface changes

Nexus 5

New hardware and software shown in the latest round of Nexus leaks

There's a new batch of Nexus pictures floating around today, showing what's purported to be the Nexus 5 from LG complete with plenty of looks at Android 4.4 KitKat

The images, taken in Italy and displayed on the Tutto Android website, show us a look at the lock screen, the home screen, and a look at the apps of the Nexus 5. Of course, this leads to speculation of exactly what we're seeing, and things like a Tap to Pay mode in the settings and transparent status and navigation bars have a lot of folks excited.

Just as interesting is some testimony from the leaker themselves. The Nexus 5 is said to be fast and smooth, with KitKat being a "lighter" version of the OS that helps in the performance department. Dual stereo speakers are acknowledged in the bottom portion of the device, and the camera is said to provide excellent image stabilization.

Combined with the rumors of a reveal next week, things should start getting exciting right about now. The changes and new hardware look pretty interesting, and we're hoping for an official announcement soon. As things stand now, the only people that really know anything are the people not saying anything.

Hit the break to see the rest of the images, and check out the source link for their take on what they are seeing.

Google posts Android 4.3.1 factory image for Nexus 7 LTE

Nexus 7 LTE

Restore or update your device to the latest build with files directly from Google

The latest update for the Nexus 7 LTE, Android 4.3.1, just started rolling out a handful of days ago but Google has already posted a full factory image for the latest build. Joining the standard Android 4.3 (JLS36C) factory image for the device, the latest image has the build number JLS36I. We still have yet to see the update or factory images show up for any other Nexus device at this time.

The x.x.1 bump doesn't seem to bring any user-facing changes and is just limited to the Nexus 7 LTE at this point, but if you're going to be wiping and restoring your device or just want to be on that latest build, you now have the Google-sanctioned tools to do so.

Nexus 7 (2013) case

A new hard case specifically made for the Nexus 7 and available in four colors

Google's second official case in the Play Store for the Nexus 7 (2013) has just arrived, and it's a hardcover microsuede version that comes in multiple colors. Simply named the "Nexus 7 (2013) Case," it is a molded hard plastic case that wraps around the sides and back of your tablet, with a stitched fabric flap to cover the screen and turn into a stand. 

The case comes in four different color combinations as well, to help fit your style — black/black, white/red, gray/blue and gray/red. Unlike the Nexus 7 sleeve this case is specifically made for the latest version of the Nexus 7, as you would expect with a hard plastic frame.

If the Nexus 7 Sleeve was any indication, the Nexus 7 (2013) Case is priced rather highly at $49.99 before shipping. Shipping options look to break down at $3.99 for 5-10 day, $7.99 for 3-5 day and $11.99 for 2 day. Add in any state sales taxes and you're easily going to break $60 on this case. If you do choose to order, the case is expected to ship by October 9th.

Redmi 10X phones offer dual-SIM 5G support at an entry-level price

With the emergence and popularity of 5G, companies like Redmi and Realme lead the charge in making 5G phones more accessible (read: affordable) to the masses. While the Redmi 10X series might be otherwise considered just another 5G phone, what makes them stand out is their ability to hold dual-5G SIM slots. This is something no other phone in the market currently offers.Redmi 10X and Pro – twice the 5G, half the priceXiaomi this week unveiled a handful of new phones, with the Redmi 10X and the Redmi 10X Pro the stars of the show. We briefly talked about the rumored phone a few days ago, but this feature is a complete game changer!Most phones currently in the market only support 5G on the first SIM slot, if at all. The second SIM slot will operate on 4G or LTE and that means if you run out of data or lose reception on your first SIM, you receive slower speeds when switching to the second SIM.The unique selling point of the Redmi 10X series comes in its ability to host two 5G SIMS in the same phone. In the aforementioned scenario, even your secondary SIM (if 5G capable) can let you continue using 5G in case your primary SIM isn’t able to deliver it to you.This is a remarkable feature for a smartphone and it’s all made possible by a brand new processor. Made by MediaTek, the Dimesnsity 820 is a mid-range chip that set to take on premium CPU manufacturers like Exynos, Kirin, and even Snapdragon.Both phones have very similar specifications. They share the same display (6.57″ 1080p AMOLED with HDR 10), for instance, with in-display fingerprint sensor, standard 60Hz display with a super-fast touch response rate.Additionally, each has the same RAM and ROM, USB-C port, headphone jack, IR blaster, and 4,520 mAH battery.  The Redmi 10X pro offers 33W fast-charging while the Redmi 10X has 22.5W fast-charging.The main differences in the phones come down to the cameras; however, the Redmi 10X Pro also offers NFC whereas the Redmi 10X does not.The Redmi 10X has a triple-camera setup: 48-megapixel main camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 2-megapixel depth, and the front camera has 16-megapixels.The Redmi 10X Pro offers a quad-camera setup: 48-megapixel main camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 8-megapixel 3x telephoto with 30x digital zoom, 5x hybrid zoom and Optical Image Stabilization, and topped off with a 5-megapixel macro camera. The front has a 20-megapixel camera.PricingRedmi 10X64GB/6GB – $220128GB/6GB – $250128GB/8GB – $290256GB/8GB – $330Redmi 10X Pro128GB/8GB – $320256GB/8GB – $360What are your thoughts on the new phones?
