Nexus 6P And Nexus 5X Are €100 And €80 Off, Respectively, Until February 12

Remember when everyone was up in arms because the Nexus 6P and 5X were so expensive outside North America? It turns out that Google has decided to quietly fix that, at least in some parts of the world. On the Google Store, the Nexus 5X, which initially launched for €479 and then came down to €429 in the Eurozone, is now starting at just €349, while the Nexus 6P, priced at €649 back in September, now begins at €549. The prices in Italy are still €50 more expensive for every model than the rest of the Eurozone, and the price increments for each storage tier are the same as before.

The Moto X 2014 International Version Is Now Receiving Its Marshmallow Over-The-Air Update In Europe

Last year's update to the Moto X gave Motorola a flagship that was a match for any high-end phone on the market at a steal of a price, and quick updates from the manufacturer were no small part of its appeal. If you're outside the US and still happily rocking the 2014 model, check your status bar: you might just have an update coming in. According to Android Police readers in Germany, Bulgaria, the United Kingdom, the Marshmallow over-the-air update is coming in across Europe this morning. It might be even more widespread than that.

[Update: 128GB Model Too] The Nexus 6P Is Finally In Stock In Europe

The Nexus 6P has been in and out of stock in the US, but in most of the rest of the world, it's never been in stock at all — until now, that is.

We've received a few tips from our readers that the Nexus 6P is now being sold in the Google Store in several countries across Europe, and possibly even beyond that. So far, we're aware of availability in Germany, Spain, France, the Netherlands, and Portugal, but the same should be true for all the countries with the Euro as the official currency.

LG Starts Rolling Out The Good Looking All-Metal Midrange LG Zero To Asia, Europe, And Latin America

Smartphones are inspirational. People see me carrying an LG G4 and want a cheaper almost just as good alternative from the brand. But up until now, LG's midrange has been lacking both in terms of specs and looks. That's why it's interesting to hear about the global rollout of a new premium'ish offering from the company that is good enough for a grand majority of users. Think of this LG Zero as the answer to Samsung's Galaxy Alpha series, but in only one configuration so far.

LG-Zero

If the design looks eerily familiar to those of you who have had smartphones for more than 5 years, it's because the LG Zero resembles a Nokia N8 with a bit of LG thrown in.

[EU Only] Nexus 5X Is In Stock In Europe And Includes A Chromecast In Some Countries

Living in Europe and being able to easily buy a Nexus device have traditionally been mutually exclusive. With the possible exception of a couple of countries, getting your hands on a Nexus in Europe usually meant having to jump through a million hoops and deal with a very limited availability. Compounded with the fact that basically every other Nexus launch to date has been a fiasco in one way or another, you could count yourself lucky if you managed to grab one in time for Christmas.

Fortunately, Nexus manufacturers and Google have learned from their mistakes, and things have improved greatly compared to previous years. As a whole, preorders in the US went swimmingly, and today — barely a month after the US launch — the Nexus 5X is available to order in Europe.

Google Expanding Android One To Portugal And Spain

Google's Android One initiative aims to bring low-cost, high-quality Android phones to the hands of those who are not able to afford a more premium device. While they are not known for having the fastest processors or the most gorgeous screens, they do come with the promise of a Nexus-like experience of stock Android and fast updates — sometimes even beating Nexus devices at their own game.

Android One phones have typically been targeted at developing markets, so far launching in Asia, the Middle East, and recently Africa as well.

European HTC One M9 Getting First Android 5.1 Update, Promise Of Shorter Charge Times

While European owners of HTC's One M9 got its most critical update bringing camera and battery life fixes in June, they've been waiting for the jump from Android 5.0 to 5.1 as unlocked and American carrier versions (except Verizon) have received it. The wait appears to be over, though, as users have begun reporting a fairly large OTA that promises a version increase to 5.1 along with quicker charging times.

The ROM version for the update is 2.10.401.1 and the download is a mighty 831.88 MB, so make sure to be connected to Wi-Fi before pulling the trigger. There are certainly a variety of other refinements beyond those mentioned in the OTA notification, not to mention important security fixes.

Sonos Plans To Increase Its European Prices On July 31st, Now's The Time To Buy Those Speakers If You Want Them

Were you planning or considering buying a Sonos speaker, amplifier, or any other kind of gear from the company on its European stores? Well, you now have only a couple of days to make your decision before the prices hike up. Sonos has announced that starting July 31st, all of its prices will receive a bump in EUR, DKK, SEK, and NOK.

Sonos explains that the significant drop in the EUR to USD conversion rate has made its current prices unsustainable, especially since it's a US company and it operates on the dollar then has to send its products to Europe where they get tacked with import duties and taxation.

The European Commission Reaches An Agreement To End Roaming Charges In June 2017 And Guarantee An Open Internet

The European Commission has been trying to establish a Digital Single Market (DSM) that makes goods and services accessible to everyone in the EU and broadens the reach and potential of start-ups, businesses, and governments. The legislation has been marching toward its approval and application, and today marks the first step on the path toward the DSM. The European Parliament, Council, and Commission have agreed, after almost two years of proposals and negotiations, on the first crucial pillar of this plan: a single market in telecoms.

That means two important changes in the telecom industry are about to be implemented in the EU: the end of roaming charges and the establishment of an open Internet.
