Nexus 5 iFixit teardown shows Synaptics, Sandisk, SK Hynix innards

While the majority of the insides of the Google Nexus 5 are, today in iFixit's teardown session, not appearing as big surprises, there are quite a few points of interest to be seen. Inside this beast of a smartphone you'll find - to every repair shop's glee - plastic clips holding the back of the machine down. This is very similar to the construction of the ASUS-made Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013), allowing quick opening for fixing parts while keeping a strong hold for the common user.

Google disables translucent bars in Nexus 10 KitKat source code

Google's Nexus 10 tablet will not get translucent navigation and notification bars with the Android 4.4.1 KitKat update, which lets the wallpaper go full-screen from top to bottom as it does in the Nexus 5.

Nexus 5 first-impressions

Could the Nexus 5 be the most rumored Google phone since the original Nexus One? Weeks of leaks, the culmination of months of speculation, and Google finally announced its fifth generation of self-branded hardware - with a little help from LG, of course - alongside Android 4.4 KitKat this week. The Nexus 4 made waves with its sub-$300 unsubsidized price tag, though the Nexus 5 can't quite slip under that all-important mental barrier, the (sold out) 16GB model starting at $349. However, it's still something of a bargain, and now supports LTE, much missed from its predecessor. Read on for some first impressions.
