WEEKLY WRAP: Elsewhere in Android this week

Our thinly-veiled excuse to slag off other web sites returns, with a look at – and brief summary of – what we didn’t write about over the last seven days. Here’s the list, along with some of the more exciting mentions Google’s mobile OS and its hardware picked up in the mainstream media this week. […]

WEEKLY WRAP: Elsewhere in Android this week

Best quickly knock one of these together, before settling down for the ultimate in once-in-every-four-years alignment of weekend sporting events. So here’s the Android news we didn’t cover this week, either by accident, through misjudgement or it simply broke when we were feeling depressed and demotivated. Blockquoted, and in a list. Because we care about […]

WEEKLY WRAP: Elsewhere in Android this week

Here are the leftovers from the last seven days, along with some of the more interesting mentions Android picked up from the mainstream media. It’s a round-up feature, the staple of the modern internet. Here’s what we didn’t do last week: Qualcomm announces Android-based Augmented Reality platform We’re officially rather ‘lukewarm’ on AR issues. We […]

WEEKLY WRAP: Elsewhere in Android this week

Time for our weekly spreading of love, and a small amount of cathartic hate, around the rest of the Android world, via the Weekly Wrap – our summary of the news we didn’t do this week. The leftovers, plus the things we didn’t understand well enough to write about properly, plus any mainstream mentions Google’s […]

WEEKLY WRAP: Elsewhere in Android this week

Time for our almost-weekly look at the Android news we didn’t cover this past week, along with any mentions of the OS in the mainstream media we stumbled across during our daily 18-hour internet sessions. We try, but have not yet achieved omnipresence. If that’s even a word. IBM gets cosy with Google’s Android OS […]

WEEKLY WRAP: Elsewhere in Android this week

OK, we’ll tear ourselves away from live-blogging the Korean boyband scene to round-up the spare parts of Android news from the last seven days. Here lie the mainstream mentions of Android and some of the stories we missed, plus any developments that were too high-concept for us to understand. Here’s what we didn’t feature this […]

WEEKLY WRAP: Elsewhere in Android news

Here’s our now-traditional weekly look back at the Android stories we didn’t feature this week, either due to factual concerns, because they were a bit too complex for us to fully grasp, or because we missed them – after all, we do occasionally have to stop doing this for things like toilet breaks, meals etc. […]

WEEKLY WRAP: Elsewhere in Android this week

Well, that was quite a week. Android 2.2 was finally confirmed during I/O 2010 and the updated OS is already popping up on the Nexus Ones of early adopters – while here at EuroDroid we set a new personal best for the number of updates in a 24-hour period. Something for everyone to be proud […]

WEEKLY WRAP: Elsewhere in Android news this week

We’re off to settle down with some lunch and a cup of tea to watch Red Bull conspire to throw away yet another Grand Prix, so in the meantime we’ll leave you with this little pile of Android-related news from elsewhere in the Droid-o-sphere. The Android stories we missed, ignored, or felt were beneath us […]

WEEKLY WRAP: Elsewhere in Android news this week

Time for the rest-day round-up of Android stories we missed or deliberately ignored, along with a few eyebrow-raising mentions Android managed to pick up from the awakening mainstream media. Put together in a nicely-formatted list, with screencaptures for balance. Enjoy. Will Android eat Apple? Even supposedly high-brow papers like The Telegraph have heard of Android […]

    • Sony Xperia Z2 review

      This is Sony’s latest go at producing a high-spec Android flagship model, with the Xperia Z2 ticking every one of 2014’s must-have tech bullet points. It has a large 5.2-inch 1080p display. It has the hot new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset inside. It has a massive 3GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. It’s […]

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

    • Vodafone Huawei Ascend G510 review

      Huawei Ascend G510A relatively high-spec smartphone, with a 4.5″ display running at 480 x 854 resolution and powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, plus the Ascend G510 arrives running Android 4.1.1 — albeit potentially hindered by Huawei only sticking 512MB of RAM inside it..

    • Kogan Agora 5.0" Dual-core Smartphone review

      We bought one of these using our actual money. We couldn’t quite believe that budget hardware maker Kogan was able to sell a 5″ Android phone for £119 plus delivery from Hong Kong so had to get one to have a look at the thing under our usual LABORATORY CONDITIONS. First impressions of the Kogan Agora […]

    • Panasonic Eluga review

      Panasonic ElugaThe Panasonic Eluga marks the company’s return to the European mobile phone scene years after several years of absence, and it’s come back to us with a moderately high-spec Android model that features a rather stylish, slim case.

    • HTC One V review

      The HTC One V is HTC’s third entry in its high-profile new HTC One range, offering a smaller 3.7″ display running on a single-core 1GHz processor. It is is very much the “affordable” option in HTC’s newest Android series, but it still arrives running the same HTC Sense 4 interface we saw in the excellent […]

    • HTC One S review

      The HTC One S is the piggy in the middle of HTC’s 2012 line-up, offering a 4.3″ AMOLED display inside a very slim and stylish aluminium chassis. You get the same ImageSense camera technology as employed to such great effect in the HTC One X, along with Android 4.0.3 and the very latest HTC Sense […]

    • HTC One X review

      Here it is then, HTC’s new quad-core monster, the 4.7″ flagship for 2012 that introduces the Tegra 3 processor to mobile phones, updates HTC’s range to Android 4.0 and brings us the supposedly streamlined version 4.0 of HTC’s Sense user interface. You also get a fantastic 8megapixel camera that we’ve previously examined in great detail, […]

    • HTC One X review: Camera, photo and video samples

      HTC’s new quad-core flagship phone doesn’t just feature Android 4.0, a 4.7″ display and Nvidia’s newest Tegra 3 chipset – there’s also an entirely new 8megapixel camera in the phone, powered by a system HTC is calling ImageSense. And this camera is one of the many highlights of the new Android phone, offering the perfect […]

    • Sony Xperia S review

      Xperia S Sony returns with an all-new mobile design for 2012, pairing a dual-core processor with a 720p display. It’s a lovely phone, but is it enough to end our Samsung and HTC obsession?

    • Sony Xperia S review: Camera, photo and video samples

      We’ve spent most of the last week captivated by the staggeringly sharp screen of the new Sony Xperia S, while putting together what will hopefully be something resembling a review for you all to read very shortly. In the meantime, to be getting on with, here are a few sample photos and videos, taken using […]

    • LG Prada 3.0 review

    • ACCESSORY REVIEW: Samsung Official Mesh Vent Case for Galaxy Nexus

      Samsung’s official Galaxy Nexus case. Costs a lot. Has a glittery little logo.

    • ACCESSORY REVIEW: Case-Mate Barely There for Samsung Galaxy Nexus

      Fresh from reviewing the cheap and cheerful FlexiShield case for the Galaxy Nexus, we’re back with another protective offering from industry veteran Case-Mate. Although this particular product retails for around the same price as FlexiShield’s TPU option, it’s quite a different proposition. Review submitted by extremely patient retro gaming advisor Damo. As the name suggests, […]

    • ACCESSORY REVIEW: FlexiShield Case for Galaxy Nexus

      Seeing as we’ve just reviewed the brand spanking new Galaxy Nexus, we’re in the mood for some accessorising – and we don’t mean earnings and handbags. To that end, we’ll be covering a few Galaxy Nexus-themed items over the next few weeks, starting with the FlexiShield Case. Review submitted by reader, writer, gamer and occasional […]
