Let me tell you that first of all the Droid Turbo's definitely amazing phone. I personally was going to hold up the Nexus 6 but then I got cold feet and decided to pull the trigger on this phone and have not been disappointed. So far the battery is definitely the most impressive feature. Basically the Nexus and the Turbo are basically the same they have the same processor the Nexus has the ISO camera clocking in at 13 megapixels and the turbo has a 20 megapixel camera with no ISO however coming from a G2 the pictures are definitely fine and dandy. The screen is extremely awesome except that YouTube for some god awful reason doesn't have 1440p or 1080p support which is super annoying. Another thing that I would like to point out about the turbo is it the battery literally is incredible I would definitely consider myself a power user in this phone easily and I mean easily last a day and a half to two days there have been several times where I fell asleep without charging my phone woke up with 20 percent and it got me through about 10 hours or so but that's with me probably only being on it for about an hour but even still that's impressive. The battery is good now so we can only imagine what kind of improvements will see when lollipop rolls out which I'm hoping will be soon the camera should also improve with that considering google rolling out their new API for photography. Overall I'd say that between the Nexus and the turbo its more of just if you want a 6 screen or 5.2 inch screen. If you have any questions or concerns please feel add comment on this post and I will get back to you soon as possible thank you for reading

Photos of the galaxy S5 leaked today, and let me tell you, I am not very impressed as far as the visuals go. This is a link to an album someone leaked today. The device itself doesn't look very impressive. The bezels are bigger than the S4, although the screen is bigger. A 2800mah battery with a rumored 2K screen is going to be a battery killer. The LG G2, came out 6 months ago and has a bigger battery than that, come on Samsung. I fear Samsung is falling into the same boat as Apple. Small subtle improvements each year, knowing that people will buy it because its "The Galaxy S5". I don't want that. I want something I pull out of my pocket, and people say "wow what's that!!!" Not, oh you have a galaxy? We're entering a time where phone manufacturers are all trying to make the next new fad (watches, fitbits, glasses) and unfortunately I don't see this being one of them, even though it will be. comment below on what you think about the S5!

1. PRICE (pretty obvious)
The beautiful thing about buying Nexus devices, is you are getting top of the line hardware and specs, for almost half the cost as anyone else. The Galaxy S4 is around 700 dollars off contract, which is absolutely insane. The Nexus 5 will cost (this is an educated guess) around 300-350 dollars, which is half the price of anything else, with the same (in my opinion better) user experience.
2. UPDATES (real catch)
Buying a Nexus phone has one simple bonus. You will always (except for you Gnex verizon people) get the latest version of android, before everyone else. Who doesn't like new software as fast as possible?
3. Everything else
The Nexus 5 is going to be a 5inch 1080p screen with a snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of ram and a 8mp shooter. Now for those of you who have no idea what I just said, I can break it down for you. Let's imagine that the phone you have in your hand right now (which im guessing is close to 1-2 years old) is the car you had when you were 16. Probably an old beater that had 200,000 miles on it that you didn't care about. The Nexus 5, is an Audi A8 with all the little extras like leather seats and air condition and the fancy GPS that you brag about to all your friends, but never really use it, because you would have your Nexus 5 navigating you around with Google Maps ;)
when it doubt, wait it out, and buy Nexus 5

AOKP JBMR Build 5
I've always been a fan of AOKP for several reasons. The main point being, the customization of the phone. There is very little in this ROM that you cant change. The NAV bars... the colors... the icons themselves. I've been rocking this room for about 3 weeks now, and i must say i am enjoying it. The battery life is better than stock, but battery life varies to how much over/under clock to RAM management/widgets/display. Another reason I enjoy there roms so much is that the dev is always updating and fixing issuses in the rom. I definitely suggest checking this one out, if i had to explain every customization feature on the phone, id be writing a small novel. I personally change roms on my phone anywhere from 2-4 times a week.

The iPhone 5 copied a few tricks from the almost 1 year old Galaxy Nexus (my current phone)
Let's make a list of things that the iPhone has taken from Android, or more specifically, my current phone, the Galaxy Nexus. Let's see, multitasking is the first thing. People don't realize that the Android OS has been multitasking for almost 4 years now, and not to mention Android also has had a notification pull down for 4 years too. Another thing, panoramic camera.... My phone (Galaxy Nexus) and most Ice Cream and JellyBean phones have been doing it for a long time now. Overall, it just blows my mind how ignorant apple fanboys are. The iPhone 5 doesn't even have NFC, but I'm sure that next iPhone will have it and people will think they are so cool. I laugh in people's face who try and tell me the iPhone 5 is the best phone on the market. I have countlessly made so many people feel like idiots after I basically tore they're "innovative" phone to shreds. I am begging all of you, please dont waste youre money on the iPhone 5. If you want to be stuck in 2010 of phone technology, then by all means go for it. But what I ultimately boils down to is, do you want something you think is "cool", or do you want the best thing for you're buck. I will never own an iPhone unless it is the best phone on the market, and in that case, I never will. My next article will be suggestions on phones to buy now. Android or Die :)

I recently received my nexus 7 tablet, I must say that I am thoroughly impressed. The tablet itself is extremely fast. Compared to the apple ipad the nexus 7 holds its own. Considering the 200 dollar price tag you are definitely better off doing with the nexus. 7 inch screen is extremely gorgeous and the battery is phenomenal. Google now and google voice typing are super awesome. I typed this entire article with google voice and it was wonderful. If you're considering purchasing a tablet I definitely recommend saving 300 dollars and buying the Nexus 7. 1 drawback to the Nexus is that there are not many tablet orientated apps. However, JellyBean is fairly new, so let's give developers sometime to start making some goodies for us.
