Nexus devices receiving update to 4.4.2

image

Google had started releasing Android 4.4.1 last week to the Nexus 5 but it seems there was a voicemail issue that was found so they’ve quickly rectified the issue & are presently pushing 4.4.2. Reports claim the update is being pushed to all Nexus devices that recieved Android 4.4 officially so if you haven’t received it yet go into your Settings Menu – About Phone – System Updates – Then tap the Check Now Icon to see if the update has been pushed to you yet.
If you never recieved Android 4.4.1 don’t worry you’ll go straight to 4.4.2.

The update from 4.4 to 4.4.2 will bring Camera improvements you can see listed in the screen shot above as well as now having the ability to Zoom in HDR+ mode which is a great improvement in our eyes. Also we have noticed that the slight static that could be heard when volume was at its lowest but not off has been reduced greatly. Volume seems to have received a boost as certain notification sounds that were hard to hear seem loud & crisp now.

Have you noticed any other improvements in the 4.4.2 or 4.4.1 update? Let us know in the comments below.

The Nexus 5 has arrived in Canada!

The Nexus 5 has arrived in Canada, actually 30,000 Nexus 5’s have arrived in Canada are sitting snugly in LG’s Canadian warehouses set to be shipped to their next destination. Their next destination is to carriers (Bell, Telus, Koodo, Virgin, Rogers, Wind, Fido) across the great white north.

The LG employee who took this shot for us all to see says that 4,000 of the 30,000 are for western Canada while the remaining 26,000 will cover the Eastern end of Canada’s carriers. So if your on the Western side of Canada get your cash in hand & ready for the official launch because with only 4000 of this initial shipment coming to your area you may have a hard time tracking one down, especially if yoir looking specifically for the black or white model.

Its still unknown the exact launch date of the Nexus 5 but a possible hint from the pic below (from gatgety.co.il) seems to point towards the 5th of November, this could be the date it actually will be  available for purchase however only time will tell. This could also be the release of the N5 & Android 4.4 KK in Israel & we could see it sooner, let’s hope anyways.

Google does have a G+ livesteam later today which could be the date we’re all waiting for as well. So wow Google has really been playing with our emotions with this launch havent they. Im sure we’re not the only ones who will be happy when this is all over & we have the long awaited Nexus 5 in our hands & we can sleep soundly after getting our New Nexus & Android 4.4 KK fix.

April brings showers & also the Sony ZL to Canada

image

Sony unveiled the Xperia ZL at CES & a couple days after announced that it will be coming to Canada. Well Sony has just stated that the 5″ device will be coming to Bell, Mobilicity, MTS, Rogers, Videotron and WIND sometime in April.

Like I said the ZL sports a 5″ 1080p HD display (Bravia Engine 2) 440ppi & covering that is a shatter-proof sheet of scratch-resistant glass. The phone is powered by a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm snapdragon S4 quad core with Adreno 320 GPU with 2GB RAM. There’s 16gb of internal memory & expandable memory of 32gb through Micro SD Slot. A 13mp main camera with a secondary 2mp camera. It will be an LTE device for fast data speeds. This is all being powered by a 2370mah battery & features Sony’s battery saving software.
This looks like a quality device but We’ll have to wait & see for ourselves when it becomes available, which isn’t that far off.
Are you a fan of Sony devices, will you be looking to aquire the ZL when it comes to Canada?

Is LG working on the Next Nexus Phone already?

LG Nexus 5

Rumour has it LG might be working on the Next Nexus device to have it ready in time for Google I/O. Now take this with a boulder of salt because as I see it working with LG again on such an important device seems like a terrible idea after such shortages of the Nexus 4.
Not only will the next-gen Nexus smart­phone be the fifth model in the series, but it will also sport a 5-inch display, hence the Nexus 5 name will make sense for more than one solid reason. The display will obviously sport a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution (440 PPI), which seems to be a display standard for high-end hand­sets this year, the all-new NVIDIA Tegra 4 proces­sor, 2GB of RAM, 8/16GB of storage, 13-megapixel camera with LED flash and auto focus and a 3 megapixel front facing camera.

Wow those are some great specs & if true you can sure bet I’ll have one in my hands for more than just a demo.
What do you think of this rumour & the suspected specs?
