The handset has an 8-megapixel camera on the back while the front has a VGA sensor for selfies. The device also has 1GB of RAM and 4GB of...

When Google announced Android L, it was only made available for the 2013 Nexus 7 and the Nexus 5 as a developer preview ROM. This left a lot of questions unanswered for customers of older Nexus devices such as the first gen Nexus 7 and the Nexus 4. However, it seems like Google is already planning to roll out the update to these 2012 Nexus devices if the Chromium bug reports are anything to go by. A number of Google employees have posted responses to a bug with the Nexus 4 running Android L firmware. While this doesn’t confirm...

This change will come into effect starting September 30, so there’s still some time before you see the prices of in-app purchases prior to downloading an application. With this feature implemented, customers can get a...

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A5 handset has just leaked out in a new set of pictures, revealing all there is to know about the upcoming metal clad handset from the Korean manufacturer. Known simply as the A5, the smartphone has a rectangular shape with what appears to be a unibody design. It is very likely that the handset will have a non-removable battery judging by the design. The device has a central home button much like every Samsung handset that we know of, so the company hasn’t changed a lot as far as the design is concerned....
