New Nexus 6 rumors have emerged! Meanwhile, Lewis just went nuts and started bending all devices! Amazon is hoping to do a better job at making hardware and the Moto 360 gets a healthy update.
Have you been waiting for the rumored Nexus 6 (otherwise known as the Nexus X)? We haven’t heard much about the device until today. The guys from 9to5 Google have managed to get some juicy details you will not want to miss.
Let’s start by mentioning this will be no small or average-sized smartphone. It is said to carry a gargantuan 5.92-inch 2560x1440p display. Other specs include a Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and 13MP/2MP cameras.
All of this will be packed in what looks much like a 2nd generation Moto X… one that is much bigger. Check out the rendered image to see what the device will look like.
Opinion: More details are sure to come now that the rumor mill has started. After all, we are expecting an October announcement and November release. That is pretty soon, guys.
People are going nuts over the #bentgate, Apple’s main failure in the iPhone 6 Plus. This disaster has us all wondering if we should even attempt to buy an iPhone 6 Plus, as it could be bent just by being in our pockets. I will not be buying an iPhone 6, and we are sure many of you will now follow suit, so which phone should you get?
All other factors aside, you probably don’t want them to bend either. This is why the guys at Unbox Therapy are releasing yet another video, this time trying to bend a few other devices. You know… just for comparison’s sake. This time around he is bending the iPhone 6 (4.7-inch version), the Moto X, the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the HTC One M8.
Opinion: It’s surprising to see how well all of these perform! I thought at least the iPhone 6 (since they are essentially related) would bend a little bit. It seems the issue here really is with the iPhone 6 Plus.
While Amazon’s latest hardware hasn’t been the most popular around, the company may be planning to expand its hardware footprint in the market. New reports claim the company will be expanding its hardware unit by 27% over the next 5 years. The full-time payroll is said to be expanded by at least 3757 people by 2019.
We are not sure exactly what all his could entail. It’s said the company is thinking about moving into wearables, as well as manufacturing a one-button device that can order supplies for you. That seems like a very strong work-force for just some devices, though. Amazon is planning to go big with this one.
Opinion: Everything Amazon does revolves around their online sales. We can expect future products to do the same, and that one-button gadget is pretty much a shopping shortcut.
A new update for the Moto 360 has just arrived, and though the improvements are relatively small they will give you a better experience.
- Improved Bluetooth connectivity between the watch and phone to reduce momentary disconnects experienced by some users.
- Added a message to confirm that Moto 360 is charging in cases when its battery is fully depleted.
- Implemented bug fixes and other system optimizations.
Just wait for your update notification and press “download” when prompted. After that, press “install now” and let the device do its thing. You should be set with update KGW42R after that.
Opinion: Go get your update, guys! I am certainly glad to see Motorola is keeping up with their smartwatch as well as they do with their smartphones.
