We all use our smartphones differently. Some people rely on them for web browsing and apps, some for texting, and many of us still resort to making calls, you know, when we have to. Even within those categories, several patterns emerge and certain habits and practices have been developed. Many of us have long since abandoned using wired headsets for calling, but a lot of people still prefer them to keeping Bluetooth headsets charged or holding a 5-inch phone against an ear.

Nexus phones tend to be in extremely high demand just after release, but right now Google has one that's shipping in two days. If you order the white version of the Nexus 5 32GB at the moment, you can get it considerably faster than any of the other models... yes, perhaps even in time for Christmas. The Play Store shows it shipping in 1-2 days, meaning that UPS would be speeding it to you by Thursday at the latest.

Depending on where you live, there's a decent chance you're not going to get that white Christmas no matter how often you make the wish. Thankfully, it's much easier to get your hands on a white phone. Verizon Wireless is now offering the LG G2 in white, and to sweeten the deal, they're giving it away for free on Cyber Monday. Well, sort of. You will still have to sign away your mobile soul for two years, but for many customers, that's just par for the course.

DP Review, one of the go-to sources for reviews, guides, discussions, and even periodic photo challenges related to all types of photo gear, recently published their own exhaustive review of the Nexus 5 on DP Review Connect, the mobile-centric arm of the site.

The review covers everything you could possibly want to read about the Nexus 5's camera, digging deep into its features and flaws (there are many in both columns), why we don't exactly have the great photo experience many expected, and providing tons of sample images in all scenarios.

Put this one in the "deal alert with reservations" basket, but if you're really keen on getting a Nexus 5 at a potentially steep discount (and don't mind waiting for it), you may want to take advantage of Dailysteals' current eBay deal for the handset.

They're selling 32GB Nexus 5s - in white or black - for just $394 shipped, and with sales tax applied only in New York and New Jersey.

We've all heard the story before. A brand new, very popular device rolls out to the public and everybody hurries to get their hands on it. Shortly thereafter, people start to notice some of the more serious issues that degrade the experience or even make the gadget unusable. When that device is a phone and one of those issues is audio quality during calls and recordings, people can become justifiably angry.

We had high hopes for the Nexus 5's camera, and while we haven't gone so far as to call it awful, we wouldn't rush to call it much more than a general improvement over last year's offering. It tops what the Nexus 4 brought to the table, but it doesn't quite match what other manufacturers have come up with since. Yet Google doesn't like this narrative, so its moving forward with efforts to brand its latest handset as the perfect companion for capturing any moment.

If you have a lot of events and/or deadlines to keep up with, then Google Calendar is a good way to know what's coming up and know where you stand in terms of time. One of the biggest benefits of Android (in my opinion, anyway) is widgets, so a Google Calendar widget is a quick and easy to see your schedule at a glace. The thing is, the stock Calendar widget is pretty...

Since the OTAs for KRT16S started rolling out in the middle of last week, some Nexus 4 owners updating from Jelly Bean are experiencing really troubling behavior after installing the new version. There are reports of issues with core interface functionality like a non-working Home button, Quick Settings toggle, a broken dialer, and various other issues. Not all affected devices have had exactly the same results, and many weren't hit, but some unusual complications have definitely started turning up.
