Make no mistakes about it, your lockscreen is good at keeping honest people honest, but a truly dedicated thief is bound to find his way around it. One of the wilder ways to do so has recently been demonstrated by researchers who cracked through a Galaxy Nexus’s security by throwing it in a freezer.
The Nexus program, though it sounds like a Stargate: SG-1 reference, remains to be the shining beacon of everything Android. It’s a bright light in a fragmented jungle, and it has given us some stunningly good hardware over the years. From the Nexus One by HTC, right through to the Galaxy Nexus from Samsung, it has been a pretty good run so far. So what should we make of the slightly samey-looking Nexus 4 from LG? More than you’d think, actually.
We’re seeing more and more high-end smartphones enter the market, and keeping up with all of them is nothing short of overwhelming. How will you decide which one will be your next handset? Here’s how popular beasts like the Galaxy S III stack up against upcoming options like the iPhone 5 and Lumia 920.
In the other court battle between Apple and Samsung, Apple is arguing that the Universal Search feature in the Galaxy Nexus violates Apple’s “universal interface for retrieval of information in a computer system” patent.

Last week US courts ruled in favour of Apple by granting a preliminary injunction against Samsung’s Google-designed smartphone, the Galaxy Nexus. Now, the phone has been pulled from the Google Play store, and Google is hurrying to put together a software patch to get around the ban.
