    Nexus devices thread

    So the new Nexus 7 was officially revealed at the "Breakfast with Sundar" Google event this morning.









    - Android 4.3
    - 1920 x 1200 7-inches IPS display
    - slightly thinner and lighter than previous N7
    - Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5GHz (basically Nexus 4)
    - 2GB RAM
    - 16GB /32GB/ 32GB 4G LTE variants
    - 5MP rear (shoots 1080p) / 1.2MP front camera



    TL;DR - Nexus 4 guts + Android 4.3 + new exterior = new Nexus 7

    And Android 4.3, still Jelly Bean, was unveiled. Mostly a maintenance release, most of the updated stuff is under-the-hood. Google has already posted the factory images for current Nexus devices (GNex, N7, N4, N10) as well for those who are too impatient to wait for the OTA and want to flash it manually.

    Just a quick question... Why would anyone need such cpu & mem?

    Re: Nexus devices thread

    I saw the device and it does seem nice. I was very tempted to get one to be honest. I found it a tad strange that it was 30 dollars more expensive than the predecessor though. I guess that the ipad mini being priced at 330 had something to do with it as the device remains 100 dollars cheaper. Damn you apple for making tablets more expensive....

    Re: Nexus devices thread

    An easy, comprehensive guide/break-down of Android 4.3. It's an interesting read.

    I'm not too bummed about the increase. You get a lot of improvements over last years model. Wireless charging, faster processor, thinner and lighter, high-quality screen, and it goes on.

    If nothing else, they have wiggle room to slash the price when the iPad mini 2 eventually comes out?

    Re: Nexus devices thread

    I think this is the best US$140 I've spent in recent times.




    ---------- Post added at 10:50 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:18 PM ----------

    Alleged press photo of the LG-made Nexus 5.

    Quote Quote:
    It confirms the LG-made Nexus 5 is going to rock a Snapdragon 800 chipset with four 2.3GHz Krait 400 cores. On top of that, as with every Nexus smartphone, Google will debut a new version of Android. In the case of the Nexus 5, that'll be Android 4.4 KitKat. Nothing that the earlier FCC documents didn't specify, but still.

    GFXBench reports the resolution of the Nexus 5 will be 1794 x 1080 (read 1920x1080). The codename of the device is reported as Hammerhead. Additionally, Google is reportedly going to make the LG Nexus 5 official by the end of October, if casemaker SPIGEN is to be believed (and we have a good reason to believe it is.)



    Personally, I think the display is shopped. Only because the time doesn't display 04:40, to reference version 4.4.

    All previous Nexus devices have the clock's time displaying the same number as the Android version they shipped with.

    Re: Nexus devices thread

    Quick bumb to this thread about the incoming Nexus 5.

    http://www.theverge.com/2013/10/18/4...u-need-to-know

    The announcement of the device should be fairly imminent. Rumors currently point to Oct. 28th as the possible announcement date. Also Google had a slip up last week and accidently activated the play store for purchase of the Nexus 5.

    http://www.droid-life.com/2013/10/17...-price-of-349/

    So from that we also know that there will at least be a 16GB model starting at $349. All other information indicates there will more than likely also be a 32GB model probably for about 400.

    Re: Nexus devices thread

    The Nexus 5 looks absolutely gorgeous as seen here:



    $350-400 is rather low for a handset on PAYG(pay as you go), no? or do you get similar prices with all handsets in US? Unless that's the price of the handset excluding the monthly charges...

    Indeed it's incredibly priced. Just like the Nexus 4 was.

    The new nexus devices are a special case, it's been suggested that Google subsidises them somewhat. But yeah, in terms of value for money few come close, at least nothing from the major manufacturers.


    Got the Nexus 4 last year, so may just wait until the Nexus 6 (though apparently Google can't call it that) comes out. Really interested to see the Nexus smartwatch though, if anyone can create a trend for those it would be Google or Apple. Apparently it'll be releasing around the same time as the Nexus 5.

    Re: Nexus devices thread

    The smart watch rumors are all just speculation right now at best.

    I have a. Nexus 4 as well and it still runs fantastic, better than many of the newer top tier devices I've used. I'm still going to buy the new Nexus 5 though, since it would be nice to have LTE.

    They'll probably just keep the phone as the Nexus 5 for future iterations like how they kept the 7 as the 7.

    Re: Nexus devices thread

    I currently own an S3 phone. How much of an upgrade would the nexus 5 be? I am tempted mostly because the nexus 5 does not come with any pre installed software and the one in my S3 kinda annoys me. Its not much of a hastle either however I could sell my S3 and use that very money to pay for the phone. Any thoughts?

    Nexus 5 officially announced today.
    http://www.theverge.com/2013/10/31/5...349/in/4815723

    kkck, I highly suggest a Nexus device. They're unlocked, get timely updates and are fantastic. Only issues with them for me have been subpar camera performance.

    Re: Nexus devices thread

    I know, I am particularly interested in the whole unlocked thing. My issue though is whether changing from an S3 phone to one of those would be worth it. It has some nice specs but would they justify the hastle of changing it? Or should I just wait another year?

    Re: Nexus devices thread

    I'm not sure about specswise beside camera performance; which seemingly is the recurring issue/complaint with Nexus phones. Definitely though, the Nexus would be a better bargain for what I assume to be near enough similar specs. I don't think you'd be losing too much. Especially if you're planning on getting the Nexus 5.

    Sai can probably comment more on the specs....

    Re: Nexus devices thread

    Well, for people who are really picky besides the camera the main speck issue is that the phone has no external memory slot. Its a bit of a pain considering I do keep stuff in an external memory in my old phone (although it would be a matter of transferring everything to my computer).
