Nexus day is fast approaching, which means that the leaks are intensifying with each passing hour. This latest one, however, comes to us courtesy of a lil' snafu on Amazon India's website. Someone must have clicked that Publish button slightly earlier than the embargo date, and the listings for the 16GB LG Nexus 5X have gone live.
As we previously leaked, the listings seem to verify that the Nexus will run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor clocked at 1.8GHz, have a 5.2" IPS LCD Full HD display, a 2700mAh battery, and a 12.3MP shooter on the back with a 5MP camera on the front.
It's time to take up your sword (and wallet) to do battle with demons, sorcerers, and other generic fantasy foes with the fourth installment of the Eternity Warriors series. There are three different heroes to master, tons of loot to find, and yes, some things to buy. Such is the world we live in.
Mozilla advances another version in their rapid release cycle today, moving the stable version of Firefox for Android (and desktops) to v41. Unlike some other recent releases, this one has several goodies for regular users. These include a modification to in-browser search that makes it more like using the dedicated search bar in desktop Firefox, offering an easy tap-to-choose selection of different search providers.
To be honest, I think this is a lot more useful on mobile than it is on the desktop. The moments, taps, and typing saved are a lot more precious when using your phone.
Another highlight is the ability to search your saved logins when there are no matches.
It's a little less than a week until Google reveals its new Nexus devices in San Francisco, but as seems to happen every year, we know pretty much every detail beforehand. Oddly, one of the last things we knew about the new LG and Huawei Nexus phones were their actual names. A rumor last week suggested that LG's 5.2-inch follow-up to the 2013 Nexus 5 would be called the Nexus 5X, and that Huawei's 5.7-inch flagship would go by Nexus 6P. Android Police can now confirm the rumors with these exclusive images of the retail packaging for both phones. The Nexus 5X is above and the Nexus 6P is below.
We don't see too much enthusiasm for soccer in the US. In fact, we call it soccer instead of football just to show how much we don't care what the rest of the world thinks. Classic America, right? At any rate, FIFA 16 Ultimate Team is out on Android, and I'm going to do my best to explain what it's all about.
Remember that time Verizon announced it will carry a version of the Xperia Z4 called the Xperia Z4v three months ago? And said it would be out "this summer?" Well, summer ends in exactly... tomorrow, and the phone still isn't out. It was actually allegedly supposed to be released over a month ago, but now any kind of launch before October seems highly unlikely. Some guy got one anyway (somehow) and reviewed it in this video on YouTube. Verizon's site, by the way, says the phone is still "coming soon."
As I hope we can all agree, this is tremendously, mind-bendingly dumb for several reasons.
If you're ordering the same cup of coffee every morning at the same time every day, why are you waiting in line? Oh, right, until now Starbucks' Mobile Order and Pay was only available in select cities. Well, dear caffeine-driven productive member of society, the feature has now made its way from the Pacific Northwest to over 7,400 stores spread across the country.
A new version of Chris Lacy's Action Launcher is rolling out today, and it brings an all-new feature that makes it a snap to search your apps. Well, I guess it technically makes it a swipe. Quickfind is a built-in search box in the app list that's accessible with a simple gesture. That's not all that's new—there are a number of other thoughtful tweaks and changes in v3.6.
