New Nexus 5 & 6 Leaks, Qualcomm 820, and Android Stagefright Exploit!

For this week’s green news, we discuss the Qualcomm 820 quad-core processor, New Nexus 5/6 leaks, and Android Stagefright exploit and how to fix it easily.

Here’s transcript of the video:

To say 2015 hasn’t been a great year for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon flagship would be a severe understatement. The Snapdragon 810 was supposed to be the latest and greatest processor. Instead, words like ‘overheating’ and ‘throttling’ accompanied any talk of the 810 in a new phone throughout the year. The disaster began in January with the LG G Flex 2 and continued with the HTC One M9 a few months later. By the time we arrived at the release of the G4, LG opted for the Snapdragon 808 instead of the 810 to curtail any heating concerns.

Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM + Root for Nexus 4, 5, 7, and 10!

Android 5.0 Lollipop is finally here!  This is the “official” Lollipop released by Google and it is now available for all Nexus devices as a flashable ROM.

In general, Android 5.0 Lollipop”supercharges” your Nexus device, especially if you have an older Nexus device like the original Nexus 7 tablet or the Nexus 4 smartphone.  Major changes include new Material Design theme for the UI, new Material Design keyboard, super-fast UI, full multi-user support, and much cleaner overall OS.

Nexus 5 DROP TEST with a CruzerLite Case!

It seems to me pretty obvious that the Nexus 5 screen will crack if you drop it without a case.  So to prove the point, I did a drop test of my brand, new Nexus 5 with a CruzerLite case, which I have been using for many of my other Android devices and it protects your phone well, especially the screen.

Nexus 5 Unboxing!

My brand, new Nexus 5 32GB model just arrived in the mail today.  I am not sure what happened as it’s supposed to ship at the end of this month but got shipped much earlier.

Anyways, here’s my first, initial thoughts on it.

The all-new Nexus 5 built (again) by LG is the predecessor to the Nexus 4.   The Nexus 5 has gotten slightly longer and thinner than Nexus 4 while internal hardware has been upgraded with full 1080P HD screen with Gorilla Glass 3, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SPU with Adreno 330 GPU (identical to one on Note 3), 2GB of RAM, and 16 or 32GB of internal storage.
