Own a Nexus 5? and don’t like the official bumper case? Well you are not alone. There are a lot of people who are unhappy with the original bumper case of the Nexus 5 and even in the market, there are not any good alternatives except the poetic’s borderline bumper case. I have to say that this case stands out of the crowd and has all the things which you will like in a good standard bumper case.. and it is made for the Google Nexus 5!
Poetic is not a new company. They are famous for the mobile phone cases and just recently they have released their new set of cases for the Nexus 5. The one which we will review today is the bumper case that protects the edges and leaves the back of the phone exposed.
The material used in the case is the TPU plastic which is pretty good and reliable. The front and the end of the case gives a rubbery feel and the edges have a glossy finish. The best thing about the case is that it doesn’t limit the functionality of the Nexus 5 and looks great in hand. As it is made for the nexus 5, so all the ports are accessible along with a custom built-in volume control button. You may me thinking that what if the case gets damaged or you simply need a replacement, then the Poetic also offers a 3 year warranty which sweetens up the deal.

ZTE Nubia Z7 is still not released but there were several rumors that it will be going to a competitor of the Sony Xperia Z and a recent leaked screenshots of the ZTE Nubia Z7 proves that these rumors were true. Today some interesting information regarding the screen size and the specs of the ZTE Nubia Z7 has been leaked which clearly shows it is going to give a hard time to the new upcoming mobiles.
When it comes to the screen size and the hardware specs, you will be amazed to see that it has a massive 6.4 inch screen which is very similar to the Sony’s upcoming phone. It will be more accurate if we call it a phablet. Take a look at the leaked picture of the ZTE Nubia Z7:
The mobile which you see in the above picture is of the upcoming mobile “ZTE Nubia Z7”. We were also able to get our hands on the specifications of the phone. The ZTE Nubia Z7 will have a 6.44 inch screen (1920 x 1080 resolution), 4G LTE and a little faster Snapdragon 800 CPU. The chip is the same which was used in the Samsung Galaxy S3 and other phones and the only difference is that it is slightly optimized to deliver better performance.
Main specifications of the phone are given below:
Screen: 6.44 inch display
Ram: 3 GB
Camera: 13 MP
Processor: Snapdragon 800 @ 2.3 GHz
GPU: Adreno 330 @ 550 MHz
Storage: 128 GB
OS: Android 4.4 KitKat
With all these specs, there is no doubt that it will be untamed beast and a very strong contender for the phones which will release near its release date. Will it be able to put a dent in the sales of the biggest giants?? We have to wait…
The long awaited Nexus 5 is finally a reality and Google has already started taking orders for this new device. The pricing of the nexus 5 starts from $349 with 16 GB memory and the one with 32 GB comes with a little higher price. It is available in two beautiful colors: White & Black. It is using the all new and the best from the Google, Android 4.4 (Kit Kat).
Now with the Google nexus, you can capture the moment that matters! The advance lens of the Google Nexus 5 can capture more light during night to make sure that you get the best pictures any time. Then there is a HDR+ mode using which you can capture dozens of pictures and then combine them to get the perfect shot. You can’t capture real life with a “4” x “6” screen that’s why with Nexus 5 you can create the effect of immersive 360° view that no other mobile or even a camera in the market can offer.
Google is claiming that it is the most powerful Nexus phone ever made. A 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 800 processor gives life to the Google Nexus 5 phone and the all new Android 4.4 kit kat operating system provides the best out of the available hardware. As it is a Google phone, so you can expect the best of Google. All the Google apps have been integrated in the phone to give you the best experience.

According to LG it is the best phone they have ever made. The question is will LG be able to put a dent into Samsung’s armor?? There are a lot of companies in the same boat as they cannot compete against Samsung but LG is different. They are a big company with deep pockets. They can afford to take risks and already in the electronic market for few decades. Before the LG G2, LG was just lurking in the Android phone market but with the release of this phone, it looks like they have decided to finally enter in the market with this amazing phone.
So let’s take a closer look at LG G2:
The outer body has been made from plastic just like Samsung phone but actually the material of the plastic is many times better as compared to the new Samsung phones. Now some of you believe that LG is just a copycat trying to copy the other phone manufacturing giants but that’s not the case. LG has introduced a handful of new innovative ideas and technologies in this phone like moving the power button and volume control on the back of the phone. According to LG the back of the phone is a more natural place for these buttons.
For me the new location of the power button is helpful. LG has taken a wise step in moving the location of the power button and no wonder other companies will copy that style. LG G2 is approximately of the same size as the Droid DNA (5.0 inches) and yet it has a 5.2 inch display with the same amount of space. This will take less space in your pocket and you can hold in your hands easily. This is a true button-less phone with no buttons at all. LG has opted for on-screen buttons taking a risk as no other company has ever done it before.
HTC has put an end to the rumors and leaks of HTC One Max by officially unveiling it. Just like the HTC One family, HTC One Max is a beat. Main specs are 2 GB Ram, Quad Core Processor @ 1.7 GHz, rear camera of 4 UltraPixel, 2 MP front camera, 16 GB storage, Android 4.3, Sense 5.5, fingerprint scanner, IR booster, zeo and a lot more. The HTC One family has been built on quality, performance and innovative technologies and no wonder that HTC One Max fulfills all criteria of the HTC One family.
Overall design of HTC One Max is similar to the HTC One and HTC mini. The difference between HTC One Max and its family members is that it is bigger and has a fingerprint scanner. The fingerprint scanner is located at the back and it can be used to unlock the phone. It will be available in the UK and USA markets within the next few weeks. It is expected to be available in the UK on Vodafone and in the USA, it will be available in the holiday season on Sprint and Verizon.
HTC One Max will deliver the power and performance you need to run everything, almost anything on your phone. HTC One Max is just perfect about anything…. Like it has a 1080p HD display which is perfect for pictures, videos and the Quad Core processor makes it an unbeatable beast. No matter if you are watching HD videos or running apps, HTC One Max can handle all the things smoothly. By default you can either choose 16 GB or 32 GB of storage but thanks to the SD cards, you can expand the storage to a generous 500 GB. Battery is the life of a phone and without enough battery timing you can’t get the enough out of your phone. That’s why HTC One Max has an 1150mAh to deliver you unmatched mobile experience.
There is a new feature in the HTC One Max and that is dual capture. You can capture pictures and your reactions on them at the same time using front and rear camera. It will be a hot deal in the USA as it will be released in the holiday season and will bring in a strong competition for Samsung and LG.

In today’s world we all use our smartphones as a primary camera because it is nearly impossible to take your camera everywhere. When it comes to viewing pictures of videos on your phone, most people use the same old built-in gallery app for that purpose. Using the same thing over and over again can get you bored and the built-in gallery app also lacks a lot of features. On the other hand, using a third part gallery tab can bring new look and feel to your phone and will also give you more power to organize and view your pictures more efficiently.
Today I will share top 5 Photo and video gallery replacements apps for Android phones that will totally change the way you see your pictures. Don’t get scared… This will look cool and good:-D
Top 5 photo/video gallery apps are given below:
- Fish Bowl
- Gallery ICS
- Google +
Now I will share these 5 apps in details so you can easily choose the app which suits your need and style.
This is the #1 photo viewing app in the Google Play store with a rating of 4.7 out of 5.0. This app is a perfect combination of speed, reliability and plenty of useful features which you will not find in the default gallery app.
Crystal clear photo viewing is the main focus of this app. Because of that, it uses a custom decoder which allows a far better quality view of your pictures as compared to the other applications present in the market. You can easily browse thousands of pictures using this app without slowing down. I personally tested all the available picture and video formats against this app and I was surprised to see that it supports almost all the formats. Navigating, zoom, photo editing, cropping was never as easy as it is with this app.
