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.

The team at 9to5Mac managed to get their hands on a 2015 Hyundai Sonata, a car that's particularly special in its ability to run both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay side-by-side. Thankfully, they did what every good gadgeteer should with the opportunity: an extensive comparison video.

When the Nexus 5 was released back in November of last year, it flipped the script on the smartphone market. Never before had a flagship phone with such amazing features been so accessible in price. It's such good value that we're still comparing it to flagship devices released in mid-2014, like the Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8. As the Nexus 5 comes up on its first birthday, we thought we'd take a look at the field as it sits today, to see if Google's pride and joy is still good value, both on contract and for outright purchase.

Motorola is back. Again. The flagship Moto X is finally on Australian shelves after almost six months waiting for it. Has the delay killed its chances Down Under? Should you buy it?

Since its inception, Google's Nexus line has been a showcase for pure, untouched Android in some of the finest hardware available. It's produced probably the best Android phone yet. And Google would be crazy not to kill it.

The Nexus 5 is an awesome phone, but sometimes you don't want to pay between $400 and $500 up front for a decent handset. If you're a contract kind of person, Telstra will offer Google's new Nexus handset on contract over 24 months, but be warned, it comes with a small catch.
