Android M’s Doze feature drastically improves battery life

When Android M was announced at this year’s Google I/O conference, we’ve started to look forward to some exciting features coming with Android’s new iteration. One of them is called Doze, which is Android’s contribution to the ever present problem of battery life. It is a deep sleep mode for your device that increases the standby time by more than double. That feature was put to the test by German tech blog ComputerBase.de.

This Nexus 5 comes with a year of FreedomPop service [DEALS] [UPDATE]

What's better than a Nexus 5, you ask? Well, one that comes with a year of hassle-free wireless service courtesy of FreedomPop, of course. This Nexus smartphone may have been forced to bow out of the Google Store to make room for the larger Nexus 6, but it still ranks as one of the most desirable smartphones to date. And just because Google is no longer selling it doesn't mean you can't get it elsewhere. Like in this Nexus 5 with a year of unlimited Talk and Text from FreedomPop.

Google testing Workshop, a Nexus phone customization tool

We didn't see this one coming: Google copying the Moto Maker concept of Motorola. Nothing is official yet but the company is rumoured to be releasing more accessories for the Nexus line.

Lollipop not good for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7, units being bricked

Most people who have the latest Android phones are scrambling to receive Lollipop updates on their mobile devices. Unfortunately, they don't come easily and quickly on every phone in the market.

Nexus 5 gets Android 5.1 OTA, might devour your RAM

Google has finally let out the OTA update that will bring the Nexus 5 to Android 5.1 land. This follows the release of factory images and binaries for several of the supported Nexus devices. However, if you are quite excited to get the latest and supposedly greatest Android version, you might want to exercise caution, as some users are reporting a rather dreadful bug in this release that causes Android to eat up RAM like crazy, even if you have more than 1 GB of it.

Google to stop selling Nexus 5 on its Google Store

As Google prepares to release the highly-anticipated Nexus 6, what will become of its predecessor, the Nexus 5? Well apparently, it will slowly go away and sink into oblivion until it is eventually forgotten. Okay, nothing as dramatic as that, we promise, but it is indeed the end of the line for the smartphone as Google will reportedly stop selling the Nexus 5.

Nexus 5 is back in stock, in black and with sizes

Although it seemed that Google was hunkering down on its device offerings, at least those it sells through Google Play Store, it might be making some concessions in light of recent revelations. It has quite silently switched the 2013's Nexus 5 to back to "in stock", perhaps to offset the difficulty in procuring a Nexus 6. Together with the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9, these three devices seem to be Google's final Google Play Store lineup as far as smartphones and tablets are concerned.

Flyme OS 4 beta for Nexus 5 gets leaked

Xiaomi's MIUI won't be the only game in town soon, especially on the Nexus 5. The Chinese-made custom ROM has had many fans, but it seems like Meizu wants a piece of that pie as well. A leaked image of this Chinese manufacturer's custom-made Flyme OS 4 for the Nexus 5 has popped up and is making rounds over the net. And while the brave first testers described the ROM as "beautiful", subsequent tests revealed showstopper bugs that definitely confirms this image as an unofficial beta version.
