Google Wants You To Think The Nexus 5's Camera Is Better Than It Is, Releases A New Set Of Ads Praising It

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.

MKBHD Goes Hands-On With The LG G Flex, Fails To Break It

Noted YouTube guy and occasional Android Police guest, MKBHD got his hands on an LG G Flex from South Korea and as is his custom, has made a video about it. If you've been wondering about that self-healing back, this video will clear some things up for you.

LG went to great pains to show off the scratch-resistant back material in a recent video, and it was pretty impressive. As MKBHD points out, though, that was shot under ideal conditions.

The LG G Flex, a device that can survive a thousand mild scratches, is apparently destined for American shores after all. While it was first thought to be exclusive to Europe and Asia, noted leaker of phone-related business, @evleaks has said the phone is headed to AT&T, Sprint, And T-Mobile. In fact, he used the word "confirmed."

Watch As The LG G Flex Repairs Itself After Being Scratched And Bounces Back After Being Flattened Out

LG's fancy new curved smartphone seems a little gimmicky at first, but it might actually have some innovative stuff going on. One of the surprises when it was finally announced a few weeks back was the "self-repairing" back material. Now you can see that capability demoed on video.

In the video, a wire brush is used to scratch up a regular plastic back panel and the G Flex back. With 500g (1.1 lbs) of pressure the scratches are almost completely gone after a few minutes.

T-Mobile Announces Launch Dates For Its Nexus 5 And Nexus 7, Is Now Accepting Pre-Orders For The Latter

Activating a Nexus 5 on T-Mobile is far from a difficult process, but if you missed out on the first wave of Nexus 5s on Google Play, T-Mobile will soon be ready to sell one to you themselves. The company is launching the latest Nexus handset on November 14th online, and they will introduce it in-stores a week later.

Rather than paying $349 for the phone on Google Play, T-Mobile customers can buy it for $41.99 down, followed by 24 monthly payments of $17.

PSA: The 3G Indicator On Your Nexus 5 On Sprint May Be Lying To You Because Sprint Wants To Hide Its Crappy Network [Update]

Sprint's network has been undergoing a major reconstruction in the last year or so, but there are still some problems to be ironed out. Suspiciously, it has been Sprint's policy this whole time to pretend that the super-slow 1xRTT network doesn't exist. Instead, its devices just display 3G like everything is okay. The new Nexus 5 is apparently playing ball with Sprint too – if you're in a 1x zone, the phone will still read 3G.

Sprint Launches The Nexus 5, LG G2, Galaxy S4 Mini, And Galaxy Mega 6.3 Today, With Mail-In Rebates Aplenty

Sprint is getting some significant updates to its smartphone lineup today: two high-end phones from LG and two mid-range phones from Samsung, in a variety of sizes from petite to freakin' huge, man. The Nexus 5 and G2 from LG, as well as the Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy Mega (6.3) from Samsung, are all available on the online store now. They should be in most retail stores soon (with a possible exception in the midwest and southeast), though the Nexus 5 will probably be scarce as usual.

Sprint's Nexus 5 Pops Up On Amazon, Costs Just $49.99 With A New Two-Year Contract - But Is A Whopping $499.99 Without A Plan [Update: 449.99]

The Nexus 5 is a ground-breaking device. For Android fans, this is the first high-end handset that customers can buy unsubsidized and activate on all but one of the major American carriers. This isn't a big deal with AT&T and T-Mobile, as Nexus 4 buyers could already use their networks last year, but the addition of Sprint is reason to take notice. If they can do it, it stands to reason that so could Verizon.

LG G Pad 8.3 Review: A Potentially Good Device That Gets Lost In The Software

When LG announced the G Pad 8.3, I was really excited. Finally, another entry into the eight-inch tablet market! Couldn't wait to get my hands on it and really dig in. Sadly, throughout my use of the tablet, my excitement slowly dwindled – when I opened the box and saw the device itself, I was more eager than ever to turn it on, but as time went on, the user interface just killed the experience for me.
