Android Community Weekly Digest: Dec. 28, 2014

Just because it's holiday season doesn't mean that the mobile world is at a complete standstill. Though many indeed have set their eyes on CES 2015, which is just a few weeks away, some still managed to sneak in a few surprises before the year is over. And, of course, the rumor mill is starting to heat up with stuff to expect early next year. Welcome to the latest edition of Android Community's Weekly Digest, covering the period from December 22 to December 28, 2014, which also happens to be the last Weekly Digest for this year!

HTC Gallery update: cloud storage, face fusion, tagging

If you're an HTC device owner that takes a lot of photos and uses the Gallery app to organize them, then the newest update is a great Christmas gift for you. The newest update to the app that is exclusive for HTC users with compatible phones brings a host of new features, including storing your photos on the cloud, the ability to fuse two pictures together, and tagging and search capabilities for pictures on your device.

Pics and Video: How Android 5.0.1 translates to Sense 6

During the time of Android 4.x, HTC was notorious for being slow in integrating Android updates to their own proprietary Sense UI. Not these days, it seems. It wasn’t too long after Google rolled out their first Android Lollipop patch (5.0.1) that we saw the build roll out to the HTC One (both M7 and M8) devices. Let’s see what it looks like.

HTC One M8, One M7 to get Android 5.0 Lollipop next month

We already know that HTC is planning to roll out Android Lollipop updates for some HTC phones. We saw some leaked photos last month of an HTC One M8 running Lollipop and Sense 6.0. HTC said the update would arrive once the final build of the platform is ready. That should be sometime in February but looks like the update is coming earlier in January. This is good news for HTC One M8 and HTC One M7 owners who've only been waiting for the sweet Lollipop update. The Taiwan-based phone manufacturer was actually the first companies to outline their Android 5.0 plans so this is really good news.

Nexus 9 LTE now available at T-Mobile, Magnetic Cover up for grabs

More than a week after we learned that the HTC-made LTE Nexus 9 tablet would be delayed, here’s T-Mobile saying that the Android tablet is now available via the Underground site. The latest Nexus tablet launched last October is being offered for the first time in the United States with a plan with no downpayment but with a monthly fee of $24.99 under a two-year contract. Full retail price is $599.76. Actually, T-Mobile is the only place where Nexus 9 customers can available of the best tablet plan this season but the tablet has been up for grabs from the Google Play Store since November.

HTC Desire 620 launches in the UK, full featured, budget-friendly

The UK has been a pretty fruitful market for HTC with their smartphone business, with the HTC One M8 enjoying huge popularity. The mid-range HTC Desire 610 has also been relatively successful, which is why UK is getting the upgrade to the mid-ranger – the HTC Desire 620 – which promises to give users a pretty full Android experience at a lower price point.

HTC RE Camera review

A periscope. An asthma inhaler. We’ve even heard the RE from HTC referred to as other things we won’t print, but one thing remains clear: HTC wants you snapping more pics. With the RE, HTC is moving past their time as a phone maker, and headlong into the world of accessories. Is the Re, which draws comparisons to devices like a GoPro, worthy of your attention, or is it another strange device we’ll soon forget? A review should answer that question nicely.
