It is Time for Google to End the Google Nexus Phone Program

nexus

Back in August 2012, Jean-Baptiste Queru, Google’s top Android Open-Source Tech Dude (well, actually Technical Lead of Google Android Open Source Project) announced an interesting experiment on Google Groups. The Sony Xperia S would be getting updates directly from Google, giving it de facto Nexus status. Less than three months later, the project was discontinued, leaving Sony Xperia S Android Open Source Project (AOSP) development to Sony. I thought this was an interesting project, and was a bit surprised the direct support from Google ended so quickly. Sony continues to support AOSP and releases drivers for the Sony Xperia S, and now joined by the Z and Tablet Z, as part of the Android Open Source Project.

Just this month Samsung and HTC released Google Edition phones, which are available for sale at Google Play. These phones run the Vanilla Android operating system. like Nexus phones, but the phone manufacturer is responsible for the kernel, which is needed to get the operating system working properly with the hardware. In this interesting turn of developments, there will be at least three Nexus phones this year, one to be released by Google sometime in October or November, and the HTC One Google Edition and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition. Then we have the Motorola X Phone, or the Moto X. Pictures of this phone surfacing on the web seem to indicate that it will have a near stock Nexus-like OS and even incorporates the standard Google Nexus soft-key buttons.

It would seem these days that if you want the stock Google Experience, you will have plenty of choices. The main advantage of the upcoming Nexus “5” is that it will get updates faster than other Google Nexus-like phones, since both the operating system and kernel will come directly from Google, and part of the phones’ cost may be subsidized by Google.

Maybe instead of selecting an existing phone, having it wrapped in a Nexus-like skin, and releasing it as the next Google Nexus phone, Google should just select two or three phones per year from its manufacturing partners and award it a “Nexus status,” entitling it to direct updates from Google. Google could even offer Google subsidized versions of phones awarded Nexus status on Google Play.

You will not even have to worry about losing the Nexus badge on the phone. I am sure as soon as a phone is Nexus certified, manufacturers would add the Nexus label to the phone and the box.

Manufacturers who want to participate in this program would have to agree to ship phones with unlocked boot-loaders and to open source their device drivers. This approach will actually compel manufacturers who want certification to be more AOSP friendly, and  should be a great boon to the project.

Nexus 4 Bluetooth Problem: Exploring the Possible Causes and Solutions

nexus 4 bluetooth

The connection problem with your Nexus 4 Bluetooth may stem out from several factors that are software or hardware related. In this article, we will explore the possible causes as well as the solutions to this issue.

Possible Causes of the Nexus 4 Bluetooth Not Turning On

Among the possible causes of the problem are glitches in the system, interference of another app, OS update related or a hardware issue.

Possible Solutions if Nexus 4 Bluetooth Won’t Turn On

Below are the possible solutions to the Nexus 4 Bluetooth problem if you have already tried switching the Bluetooth function on and off several times without success.

A. Toggle Nexus 4 Airplane Mode

One quick way to fix this is by toggling Airplane Mode. This function can be accessed through these steps:

  1. Press the Menu button.
  2. Go to Settings.
  3. Select Wireless & Networks.
  4. Choose More.
  5. Check and uncheck the Airplane Mode option.

B. Restart Nexus 4

If toggling Airplane Mode won’t work, restart your device normally or via soft reset (holding the Power button until the device turns off and on again).

C. Turn Off Some Nexus 4 Apps

Some contributors in the Google and Android Central forums said that turning off apps like Temple Run 2 and Android Beam. But there are users who said that the issue still occurs even when the mentioned apps are active.

Another way to determine if there are apps causing the Nexus 4 Bluetooth problem is by going into Safe Mode.

D. Nexus 4 Factory Reset

If the problem persists, try performing a factory reset. Remember to backup your data though before doing so.

E. Update the Android OS Version of the Nexus 4

A number of users claim that they started experiencing the problem when they updated their Android version to 4.2.1. So, if this is the case, all you have to do is wait for the next update or call Samsung about it.

F. Nexus 4 Rooting

This can be a solution to fix the update-related problem. Some users who tried running CyanogenMod 10 in their phones apparently solved the issue based on the Android Central forum. But be reminded of the risks associated with rooting though like voiding your warranty and bricking.

G. Hardware Repair or Replacement

If your device has been overheating lately for no reason or applying the solutions above do not work. You might be looking at a hardware problem already. Have the hardware of your device checked if this is the case or bring it to Samsung for checking (just remember to unroot it though if it has been rooted).

How to Add Words in the Nexus 4 Dictionary

nexus 4 adding words in dictionary

The Nexus 4 is a popular device with Android fans worldwide. So far, it has been labeled as Google’s “best smartphone” (although this distinction will apparently come to an end once the Nexus 5 comes out).

When communicating through text using non-English words, you might be annoyed whenever the auto correct function of the phone pops out and replaces your word.

Adding Words in the Nexus 4 Dictionary

Here are some tips on how you can add words to the dictionary of your Nexus 4 smartphone:

One way to go around this problem is by adding the non-English words that you are frequently using to your Nexus 4 dictionary said a member of the XDA Developers forum. This is through the Language and Input settings of the phone.

According to the same source, you can do this also while texting using the messaging app of the Nexus 4. While texting and your phone encounters a word that it is not familiar with, some words will appear in the suggestion bar. The words recognized by your dictionary will be on the opposite sides of the bar. All you have to do is tap the middle word in the bar which is the one you are using. You will be prompted to “tap word again to add to dictionary” to include the non-English word in your dictionary.

Email to Us Your Questions and Suggestions

I hope that the information provided here somehow helped. For more questions about Android devices, write to us at mailbag@thedroidguy.com. Just be detailed as much as possible in your questions so we can effectively pinpoint your problem and help you find the right solution for it.

Nexus 5 with Android 5 Key Lime Pie Based on LG G2 may Come in October

Daum, A Korean tech news site, is reporting that the next version of Nexus dubbed Nexus 5 will be based on LG’s next flagship smartphone G2 hardware and will most likely be coming to the market in Early October with the next version of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie out-of-the-box.

Nexus 5

The Specs

If the new report is true, the successor to the hugely successful Nexus 4, also made by Samsung, will have most hardware specifications of the LG G2 which is rumored to be in the final stages of development and will be coming with 3 GB of RAM, a 13 megapixels rear camera, a 5.2 inch Full HD IPS screen, a 2,700 mAh battery pack and LTE-Advanced support.  If this report is true, we expect the Nexus 5 smartphone, which will be a high end Google phone, to be the first to come with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie shortly after LG releases the G2.  The LG G2 on the other hand is expected to launch with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.  Most of us actually expected that the LG G2 would be coming with Android 4.3 OS which is already running in Google Play version of Samsung Galaxy S4.

How reliable is this report?

The report by Daum is that the nexus 5 smartphone is being developed parallel to the LG G2 and although the two will share most specifications and design, they will be completely different.  This could be true considering that Nexus 4, also made by LG for Google, shared many features with LG’s Optimus G phone and this may be the strategy the two companies are adopting this time.  We cannot say the report was accurate and rely entirely on this information, but it is now becoming clear that LG will be the next make of the Nexus smartphone.

About two months ago, LG denied reports that it was going to make the successor to the Nexus but it quickly issued a statement to ‘clarify’ that statement.  Its PR department said that the company was ‘open to continued collaboration with Google’.  Wall Street Journal also confirmed recently that the ‘K release’ of Android is slated for this fall, which, in a way, corroborates with Daum’s report of Nexus 5 October launch.

More details about Nexus 5 and LG G2 will be surfacing in the coming days but it is now almost imminent that LG will be the manufacturer of the Nexus 5 Smartphone.  You can check out more information we have gathered about the LG G2 including some new leaked photoscamera and displayprocessor and launch date.

Nexus 4 no longer listed as “best smartphone,” is now “first Google smartphone”

Huh. Will you look at that. It’s not breaking news by any means, but only a few minutes ago Google updated the device page of the Play Store with only a very small change to their Nexus 4 listing. Previously, the caption describing the Nexus 4 read “the best smartphone.” While that statement is definitely [...]

UK retailer Carphone Warehouse removes Nexus 4

nexus-4

It seems the Nexus 4 is slowly dying down as the world moves to another generation of Android smartphones. Carphone Warehouse, one of the largest UK phone retailers, has dropped the black version of the Nexus 4, just one day after the white version was discontinued.

Google and LG struggled with stock for the first few months of the Nexus 4′s life and Carphone Warehouse was one of the major retailers, even though their stock was always foggy. Some analysts say over five million Nexus 4 sales were missed through Google’s failure to notice how much people would want the smartphone.

Since then, the Nexus 4 has done well but the past few months have been pretty quiet. The white Nexus 4 was enough to excite some stock Android fans, but with the Google Editions of the Galaxy S4 and HTC One now on sale, there is little reason to buy the Nexus 4 other than price.

White Nexus 4 Is No Longer Available From Google Play

White Google LG Nexus 4Well, if you wanted to pick up the white Nexus 4, you are now officially out of luck; both the 8GB and 16GB white Nexus 4 pages now show that the white version of the device is now “no longer available for sale”. Shame, though it was stated from the outset that the white version would only be available in limited quantities.

The black version of course is still available if you’re still game to buy a Nexus 4, and they finally look to be available in good quantities after torrid supply issues after its release. Visit the Nexus 4 Google Play page here if you are so inclined.

Mysterious LG device with Snapdragon 800 spotted in benchmark tests, most likely G2 not Nexus 5

LG_F320_AnTuTu_Benchmark

Another LG device was spotted in AnTuTu Benchmarks, and the speculation is that it could be the Nexus 5. It has a model number of LG-F320 and scored 32,000 points with its 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU. I know a lot of people are hoping for a Nexus 5, but this is probably a G2 variant for Korea.

Remember, LG confirmed they aren’t working on a Nexus 5. Of course, shortly after, it was reported that they produced a prototype, but there are a lot of prototypes that never hit the market. I am still on record as saying there won’t be a Nexus phone this year, and instead, it’s going to be just Google Edition and Motorola phones from here on.

Going back to the G2, we should get a lot of info on the device at LG’s event on August 7.

Mysterious LG Device Shows Up on Benchmark Rocking Snapdragon 800 Processor

lg-nexus-5-benchmark

A mysterious LG device has made its way onto the AnTuTu benchmark, and many are hoping it is the Nexus 5. We would all love to believe that, but odds are it is just the LG Optimus G2. We still do not know for sure if LG is planning on continuing the Nexus name quite yet, even though they have said they were not. Whatever phone this is, it will be packing heat.

The benchmark above shows us that this device will be rocking a Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at a whopping 2.3 GHZ. It would be noce to have a Nexus 5 with that much power, but I am pretty sure it is just the G2. I could be wrong though, and I want to know what you guys think about this.

Google tipped to be building a game console and Nexus smartwatch

It looks like Google is about to get into a lot more hardware than just the Chromebook Pixel. A new report has just broke that will surely get some peoples interest piqued, and rumors swirling. Google is apparently building their own Android-powered game console, a Nexus smartwatch, and even a new Nexus Q. Talk about a loaded rumor. Read on for more thoughts.

2013-05-14-0447-L

We know the folks from Google have tons of side projects and things like Google X, not to mention are always innovating and creating new products. Even if they never see the light of day. However, with the OUYA, NVIDIA SHIELD, and tons of game consoles hitting the market, Google could be planning their own. According to this rumor it’s already in the works, and we could see it later this year.

The Wall Street Journal was the first to break the Motorola X-Phone rumors, and now they have another big one today. Reporting that “people familiar with the matter” have confirmed everything mentioned above. Crazy right? Google is reportedly working on their own smartwatch, which we’ll simply call the Nexus smartwatch for now, and then of course a game console. Both of these will be an attempt to combat any upcoming products by Apple. Not to mention dominate both markets, which are gaining a lot of popularity as of late.

The rumor is filled with little goodies. They even say Mountain View is working on the Nexus Q, a device which we saw last year at Google I/O that never was sold to the public and later canceled. However, I have a feeling the Nexus Q won’t ever exist. And instead everything Google had in store for it will be blend into the game console. Just like the Xbox plans to dominate our living room. Google’s Nexus Q (or Nexus console) will do the same. If I had to guess.

new-motorola-540x3601

In closing the WSJ (and their sources) states that Google will design and market these products themselves (just like the Pixel) and at least one of these products will make a huge splash when it gets released this fall. Yes, this fall! Most likely anything at this point will be sold from the Play Store, so that’s a given.

The rumor and article goes on to mention Google developing their own phones for emerging markets, which we mentioned yesterday, as well as Android Key Lime Pie being offered to manufacturers like Samsung to be used in appliances and more. Not just smartphones and tablets. Man, this really is one loaded rumor isn’t it?

There’s plenty more, so check it all out from the link below. What do you guys think. Is a Google-made game console in the works, and would you buy one?

PSA: Latest Google Play Movies Update Kills Support For Nexus Q, YouTube All That’s Left

NexusQToday’s update to Play Movies introduces a sleeker experience for Android devices. Unfortunately, the experience is too sleek for the Nexus Q to handle. For the few of you that have one of those endearing little spheres, your movies are now joining your music as content you can no longer stream to the device.

NexusQ-Fail

With both Play Music and Play Movies support gone, there is little reason to continue using the Nexus Q. That said, the YouTube app still works. The device isn’t dead yet, but it’s well on its way to becoming the most adorable brick you have ever owned.

T-Mobile Offering Free Wireless Charger When You Get The White Nexus 4

T-Mobile is offering for a limited time only a free wireless charger when you get a white Nexus 4 from them. This is a web exclusive offer which you can avail of at their online store. The wireless charger is normally priced at $60 which makes this a good deal.

nexus 4

The carrier has also dropped the price of the white Nexus 4 to $0 downpayment. You only need to make a $17 payment for 24 month which should bring the total to $408.

If you are planning to get a Nexus 4 from T-Mobile then you might want to consider getting the white version. The black version costs $50 more and does not come with a wireless charger.

You can choose from a variety of plans that suits your needs. The carrier’s Simple Choice Plan comes with unlimited minutes and texts with different data options. The 500 MB data plan costs $50 a month, an addition of 2 GB data will cost $60 a month, while the unlimited nationwide 4G data costs $70 a month.

Nexus 4 Technical Specifications

  • Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
  • 4.7″ 280 x 768 pixel resolution (320 ppi, WXGA IPS, Corning Gorilla Glass 2
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 Pro CPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB Built-in Memory
  • 8 Megapixel rear Camera
  • 1.3 Megapixel Front-facing Camera
  • 1080p HD Camcorder

T-Mobile provides free shipping to customers who choose to avail of this promo. When you compare this to what Google Play offers then you will see that T-Mobile has a lower rate. Google Play is selling the Nexus 4 at $350 plus $60 for the wireless charger. That comes out to $410 total which is $2 more than the price at T-Mobile. Another advantage of getting the device with T-Mobile is that you can pay it over time.

Google says Nexus device series ‘will continue’

Google says Nexus family 'will continue'

With all this talk of stock Android on your favorite smartphones, we’d be forgiven for thinking it might be the end of the road of Google’s Nexus brand of tablets and phones. But at today’s D11 conference, Google’s SVP of Android, Chrome and Apps, Sundar Pichai, has said that it will continue to make them and that, “the goal behind Nexus was to guide the ecosystem. But that will continue as well.” So that’s stock Android on Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 and the HTC One, the Moto X and more Nexus devices. The company’s keeping busy.

Exclusive: Press Images Of The White Nexus 4 (LG E960W) Leak Out

imageAs we already know, the white Nexus 4 is very much real. Months after first showing up on the web, it re-appeared at Google I/O in all its glory, with June 10th tipped as a possible launch date by AndroidAndMe’s co-founder Taylor Wimberly. Alongside it, according to Taylor, Android 4.3 would be unveiled as well.

While I can’t confirm the date (even if the information was correct at the time of I/O, plans can change for any reason), what I can show you today are some of the press images of the white Nexus 4, model number E960W (the original Nexus 4 is E960).

Exclusive White Nexus 4 Photos Finally Hit the Web

white-nexus-4-3

The infamous white Nexus 4 has finally posed for exclusive press photos, which leads us to believe that the speculation that it will arrive next month is in fact true. Android Police grabbed these exclusive photos, and there you have it, a pale backed Nexus 4.

white-nexus-4
white-nexus-4-2
white-nexus-4-3

The 32 GB variant of the Nexus 4 should also arrive with this light-skinned N4, and I think people are more excited for that. That, and the fact that it should be arriving with some new tasty Android 4.3. The White N4 does have a sexiness to it, but some might want to wait for the next Nexus that should be unveiled to us later this year. Let us know if you are planning on grabbing yourself, or someone else, a white Nexus 4.
