Galaxy S6 specifications may include “less TouchWiz”

Word on the street this week is that Samsung's next hero phone may kick TouchWiz to the curb. However unlikely that may seem, it would go with the trend. Imagine Motorola - owned by Google for a while rather recently - with a Moto X with a far more skinned UI. Imagine the HTC One M8 with Sense 2.0. Samsung may be taking a cue and making with the quicker updates to Android - straight from Google, like Nexus devices are prone to do - in the process.

Leaked email hints at Samsung’s Lollipop upgrade plan

Leaked email hints at Samsung’s Lollipop upgrade plan

Most Android users don’t have a Nexus device, and Motorola is still not a preeminent OEM. That means most people don’t see Android updates when they’re launched, and have to wait a period of time before the manufacturer of their phone (and possibly carrier) get it together and update their handset. Plenty of reasons for the delay exist, and Google would rather we have their newest Android quickly, but most are left wanting. A leaked email suggests Samsung is priming their Experience Shop associates for Lollipop to hit in January.

Samsung Look At Me app helps autistic kids make eye contact

We often fancy technology and devices as great addons to our lives, but for some minorities, they can also be great enablers. Trying to harness the latest in smartphone technology, software development, and psychology, Samsung developed its new Look At Me app to help train children with autism make eye contact, recognize facial expressions and emotions, and ultimately help them develop better socials skills and bring them closer to family and friends. Best of all, to the kid, it's all just a game.

Google is making it really hard to get a Nexus phone this year

Google is making it really hard to get a Nexus phone this year

Google’s Nexus might set the bar for Android, but it probably won’t be a gift you give or receive this holiday season. After a report Google was discontinuing their Nexus 5, Google confirmed it was still around — just on a sabbatical. Google says the Nexus 5 will be back next year, likely in January. With that, we’ve got little recourse for actually snapping up a Nexus smartphone right now, since both are out of stock via Google Play. If you were hoping to see a Nexus in someone’s hands this year, you might be out of luck.

Three things that surprised me about the Nexus 6

Three things that surprised me about the Nexus 6

Is there anything more to say on the Nexus 6? Google's latest flagship smartphone has come in for more than the usual degree of attention, as the first handset to run Android 5.0 Lollipop. The fact that Google can't keep them in stock for longer than sixty seconds or so isn't doing anything to dampen the hype, either. I've already gone digging through Google's huge new phone in my equally huge Nexus 6 review, but it turns out the Motorola-made handset hadn't quite finished teaching me a lesson.

Nexus 6 Review – You want to lick this Lollipop

Nexus 6 Review – You want to lick this Lollipop

A new Google smartphone is a big deal, and the Nexus 6 is a very big phone indeed. Largest so far of Google's collaborations with handset manufacturers, and first to see Motorola take the Nexus reins - ironically just as the two firms part company - it's a riff on this year's Moto X but with a new turn of speed and a crazy Quad HD display. It's also the launch vehicle for Android 5.0 Lollipop on phones, arguably the biggest thing to happen to the OS in many generations. So, with supplies still frustrating all but the best-timed of buyers, is the Nexus 6 the Android phone you want in your pocket?

This is the Nexus 9, Android Lollipop’s tablet vanguard

This is the Nexus 9, Android Lollipop’s tablet vanguard

Google's Nexus 9 faces more than a few challenges. Not only does it have the job of following Google's well-esteemed Nexus 7, which for two generations gave Android tablet fans an affordable and bag-friendly option, but it also serves as flag bearer for Android 5.0 Lollipop on a tablet form-factor. Throw in the fact that it also marks HTC's long-awaited re-entry into the slate segment, and that it's the first true 64-bit Android tablet courtesy of NVIDIA's Tegra K1, and that's a whole lot of pressure resting on one 8.9-inch iPad rival. So, how does it hold up?

Nexus 6 hands-on – A whole lot of Lollipop

Nexus 6 hands-on – A whole lot of Lollipop

A new Nexus is always a big deal, but the Nexus 6 is big in every sense. Google and Motorola opted to go large for the latest pure-Android smartphone, giving Lollipop a vast 5.96-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad HD touchscreen in which to ply its "Material Design" wares. In fact, the Moto X stylings carried over from Motorola's own-brand flagship are deceptive, and side-by-side there's a considerable difference between the two. Google has kept the real magic for itself, nonetheless, and the Nexus 6 is shaping up to be as capable as it's coveted.
