The 2016 Nexus: Everything We Think We Know About Google's Next Phones

While there are dozens of phones which run their own flavour of Android operating system, Nexus phones are the purest expressions of Google’s ideas. Google is preparing to launch a pair of new Nexus phones this spring, and thanks to rumours and leaks we’ve already got a good idea of what they will look like.


How To Make Any Android Phone A Nexus

Nexus phones are essential tools for any Android fan or developer because of their lack of bloatware and regular system updates. Now, thanks to tweaks to the latest version of the operating system, it’s not that difficult to get a Nexus-style experience on any handset. Here’s how you can do it.


Is Google Building A Nexus Smartwatch?

Alongside its two rumoured new Nexus smartphones, Google might just be working on its own wrist-bound companions, with AI Assistant integration. Android Police has what it says is exclusive information on not one, but two, different Android Wear smartwatch projects going on at Mountain View.


Lunch Time Deals: $150 Off Google's Nexus Phones

When you’re buying your lunch today, you might want to take a moment and spend a little more. Gizmodo’s Lunch Time Deals posts point out any particularly good bargains for Aussie bargain hunters around the ‘net. There’s a pretty tempting tempoarary price drop at JB Hi-Fi for both of Google’s newest Nexus phones, the 6P and the 5X.


Yes, A Nexus 5 Can Be Modded To Add 64GB Of Fast Internal Memory

First things first — if you’re expecting to flip a switch or tweak a setting on your Nexus 5 to magically add faster storage, well, turn away now. On the other hand, if you’re good with a soldering iron, comfortable with electronics and don’t mind potentially bricking your phone, you too can give your aging gadget a face-lift.


Google's Nexus Live Cases Are Infinitely Customisable

Google’s Nexus smartphones are pretty and powerful, but with edge-to-edge glass screens and a metal chassis on the larger 6P, they’re prone to the occasional scratch and ding. Google has thusly just released — in the US, at least — new Live Cases for the Nexus 6, 5X and 6P that let you print your own photos and designs, or even a Google Maps location, onto a polycarbonate case.


The Best Smartphone For Every Need

The funny thing about buying a smartphone in 2016 is that it’s hard to go wrong. Not too long ago, even great phones could have terrible battery life, be bogged down by gobs of unwanted software, have an awful camera, or be missing a crucial feature or two. Now, we find almost every major handset will last till bedtime, take decent photos, display them on an excellent screen, blaze through apps with a speedy processor, and browse the web with fast 4G/LTE connectivity.


A Gif Guide To Android N: The Beginning Of Something Great

This week, Google launched Android Beta, a program designed to give developers (and other Android obsessives) a look at what’s next for the world’s most popular mobile operating system. For now, that means people can use the program to try Android N, the newest (and unreleased) version of Android.


Google Surprises Everyone With Release Of Android N Preview After Images Leak

For a brief moment, Ars Technica published a detailed article listing all the new features coming to Android N. It was taken down, but not before the page got archived on sites like Reddit and other Android blogs. Here’s exactly what we learned from the leak.


Google Wants To Control The Design Of Nexus 'From The Ground Up'

Google’s Nexus phones are currently built in partnership with hardware manufacturers, such as Huawei and LG, who have development teams on site at Google. But taking a leaf out of Apple’s book with the iPhone, Google is reportedly looking to take a more hands-on approach to the production of the Nexus.
