Which SMS app are you using to replace Hangouts?
I just got my Nexus 5 and I did not like the idea of having my hangout conversations being mixed with my text messages. I'm sure many of you feel the same way. So I decided to download an alternative SMS app and I believe the 8sms is the best app out there right now. It looks just like the original stock messaging app.

Here's the link to 8sms:

Which SMS app are you guys using to replace Google Hangouts?

Could you live without Google products?
After Google shutdown reader, and with their bigger push of Google+, I'm noticing blog posts popping up a bit more with people moving away from Google services. Aside from the companies history of just axing products, the issue appears to be users are becoming uncomfortable with Google's changes that affect products across the entire web -- not to mention the sweeping change to Gmail, IMAP, XMPP is leaving some people unhappy.
I was trying to think about how difficult it would be to make this... Read more →

Similarity between iPhone 5S and Nexus 5
Despite of the price tag, material of body, difference in processor computing type and degree of openness system, I noticed that Nexus phones and iPhones have a lot in common. I'll list those features that I'd observed:

1) Non-removable batteries
2) Non-expandable storage
3) 8 MP cameras enhanced by software
4) Timely OS updates
5) Plain but solid and compact built

What are your thoughts about these? Does these features make the best phone for the average user?

Moto X or Nexus 5
So I can't decide between these two great phones. I currently have an iPhone and I'm making the switch to android. I like specs but I also want great features. On one hand I like the Nexus 5 because its pure android and its guaranteed to get the latest version of android whenever its avialable. But on the other the Moto X caught my attention with Active display and voiceless controls. Can you guys give me your opinion on which one I should consider?

CamSpeed, Camera Speed Comparison (Iphone 5s, Galaxy S4, Lumia 1020..)
Here is a result snapshot of the CamSpeed database comparing some of the most popular smartphones currently available.
List contains average measurements of the listed models in normal light conditions.
As you can see Oppo Find5 is a lot faster to take the first picture than Lumia 1020. Those 38MP have their cost, but on the other hand Sony Xperia Z1(C6903) with its 20MP camera is still pretty fast.
Another interesting thing is... Read more →

Wireless Charging: Is it worth it yet?
Ever since the Nexus 4, and early Nokia Lumia's were announced, I was somewhat excited by wireless charging. This was the future. I wanted to have this functionality.
Over a year later, I own a nexus 4 and still plug in a cable every night. In my opinion I still don't think wireless charging is at the place I want it to be. Here is why:
1. You have to find one that will work well for your phone
I know Qi charging is rapidly becoming the best standard in wireless charging, but a lot of the wireless... Read more →

Moving from Android to iOS is not as bad as you think
As a previous Android user I often saw a lot of Android users exclaim about how coming to Android was such a liberating experience from the grasp of Apple's walled garden. For the last few years I believed this, but over time I started to open up to what Apple and iOS have to offer. After moving to the iPhone 5s this past September I can comfortably say making the move is not nearly as bad as it's made out to be, and to be honest it's been nice to not have the freedom that Android provides.

So I received my Nexus 5 yesterday, and the first thing I noticed was whenever my phone vibrated, it was REALLY, abnormally loud. I checked on some forums, and I found others had similar complaints. It may be an issue with the vibration motor not being securely held down. Anyone experience this?

I called Google and they told me to do a factory reset (not going to fix anything), and then e-mail them if the issue isn't resolved, which hopefully means getting a replacement?

I just got mine.
I had an AT&T Galaxy S3. I moved the microSIM card from the Galaxy S3 to the Nexus 5. Then went on the AT&T website and had a chat representative activate it. So far so good. Everything is working as intended. It feels like a large iPhone5 with a non-slip back. Pretty much what I was looking for in my next Android phone.
