One of the distinguishing features of Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL flagship Android Oreo smartphones compared to their predecessors is the inclusion of Portrait Mode. Portrait Mode allows the main cameras on the Pixel 2 family to produce a synthetic shallow depth effect in photos with a single camera lens, whereas most competitors use a dual-camera setup to achieve the same results. "For shallow depth-of-field, synthetic defocusing is not the same as real optical defocusing, but the visual effect is similar enough to achieve the same goal, of directing your attention towards the main subject,"...

LG Electronics seems to be taking the unusual step of issuing full refunds to Nexus 5X owners who find their handsets stuck in an endless reboot cycle. Typically a customer could expect a refurbished replacement or free repair for a phone that is still under warranty, but apparently LG doesn't hold onto stock very long—it told a customer who sent in his phone for repair that it was out of parts necessary to complete the job. "We're sorry to hear that you've experienced a problem with your LGH790 and appreciate you giving us the opportunity to provide a warranty repair. We have received your device... Read more...
Google is well aware of the complaints involving its Nexus 5X handset, and specifically those related to "sluggish performance," along with various other annoyances. The good news for Nexus 5X owners is that Google is pushing out an over-the-air (OTA) today to address those problems and other issues raised by customers. "We have listened to your feedback, and this update includes a number of bug fixes that will improve overall stability, connectivity, and performance on the Nexus 5X. The March security update will be included with this OTA for the Nexus 5X," a Google community manager posted on... Read more...
If you’ve been looking in from the outside with regards to Google’s Project Fi wireless service, now is your chance to hop in with no strings attached. When Google launched Project Fi last year, it did so using an invitation-only system that artificially limited the number of people that could join the service. Google has stripped out the invite system and has now opened up Project Fi to anyone with a Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P (voice and data) or data-only with the Nexus 9, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4 or Galaxy Tab S. For those that need a refresher, Google charges you a flat $20 per month for a... Read more...
Chocolates and flowers are what usually come to mind as gift ideas for Valentine's Day, but Google has something else you might love. Just one week removed from permanently slashing the price of its Nexus 5X by $30 to $349, the sultan of search has issued another price drop, this one $50 and presumably a temporary one in celebration of the day for lovers and romantics. It also applies to the gold-colored Nexus 6P.When you think about it, what says long-term relationship more appropriately than a smartphone? It's a gift that can take things to the next level, just be sure the recipient is ready... Read more...
Google seems to have gotten the memo that a price cut for its Nexus 5X handset would be much appreciated, and so the powers that be in Mountain View made it happen. The Nexus 5X is now permanently lightened by $30, bringing the cost down for $349 for the 16GB model and $399 for the 32GB version, both unlocked and off-contract. For what it is, the LG-build smartphone wasn't overpriced to begin with. However, it went on sale for $299 on Black Friday, and after that, several retailers had it listed for $330. Google's price cut isn't quite as steep, but it's enough that a potential buyer may now pull... Read more...
The original Google Nexus 5 shipped right around this time two full years ago. Much has evolved in the smartphone space in the 24 months since then, but little has changed in terms of branding with this latest LG-built Nexus device. The 5.2-inch Nexus 5X we will be showing you here is positioned as the mainstream Nexus phone in the Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) lineup, with an unlocked base price of only $379, though street prices are actually lower.

LG's flagship Nexus device for 2015, the Nexus 5X, is now on sale in the Google Store. Pricing starts at $379 for what's essentially a higher-end mid-range device, if that makes sense, and includes 16GB of built-in storage. For an extra $50 ($429 total), you can double up on storage and pick up the 32GB version.The Nexus 5X is an interesting product for the price. It has a 5.2-inch display with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution (423 ppi) protected with Corning Gorilla Glass. Powering the handset is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz with Adreno 418 graphics and... Read more...
Google today pulled the wraps off its two flagship Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphones. Unfortunately for Google, we already know just about every possible spec for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, so we’ll just play along like we were none the wiser… Starting off with the “little guy,” the LG-built Nexus 5X is the spiritual successor to 2013’s Nexus 5 and is powered by a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with 2GB of RAM and includes a 5.2-inch 1080p display. Camera duties are taken care of by a 5MP front-facing camera and a 12.3MP rear camera. Other features include a 2700 mAh battery... Read more...
Google is expected to have plenty of news to share with the public at it’s special event scheduled for September 29th. But perhaps the two most anticipated products that are set to be revealed next week are two new flagship Nexus smartphones: the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P. A leaked Amazon product page have given us the clearest look at the specs for the smaller of the two smartphones: the LG-produced Nexus 5X. The product page confirms a 5.2-inch 1080p display, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor (which is curiously paired with just 2GB of RAM). The entry-level Nexus 5X (LG-H791) only features...

The Nexus 6 launched nearly a year ago with a price tag of $649. At the time, it was a pretty fair price given the high-end specs that the device shipped with: Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB RAM, 5.96-inch QHD display, and up to 64GB of internal storage. A year is an eternity in the smartphone world, and some pricing adjustments have been made during the Nexus 6’s life cycle. The smartphone first had its price deduced by $150, falling to a more palatable $499. And today, that price falls by another $150 to just $349 over at Amazon.com. The new price point puts the Nexus 6 just $50 below... Read more...
