Android 5.0 release date confirmed. Will your device get it?

  A note sent to app developers which was obtained by Android Police informs developers that the Software Development Kit for Android 5.0 is now available. It further advises developers that they can start working and testing their apps on the Android 5.0 platform. It concludes by revealing that Android 5.0 will be available to consumers starting 3rd November. Considering both the Nexus 9 and the new Nexus 6 will be available starting early November, this is quite predictable. Both of them will come preloaded with Android 5.0, and it makes sense for Google to push the update out to earlier devices at this time too. As we have seen in the past, Google’s own Nexus devices will be the first to get the update, followed by the Google Play devices. HTC has also confirmed that the One M8 and One M7 will be getting the update worldwide, “Within 90 days of the software release from Google”. Motorola has also confirmed that they’ll be releasing the update later this year for their phones. Thanks to the new Material design, Android 5.0 lollipop has a whole new look and feel to it, making it a significant update over Kit Kat. The big question is, will your device get it? The list below shows the phones that have been confirmed to get the update (Though we can’t guarantee a timeline at this point): GOOGLE Nexus 4 Nexus 5 Nexus 7 (2012) Nexus 7 (2013) Nexus 10 GOOGLE PLAY EDITION HTC One (M7) HTC One (M8) Samsung Galaxy S4 Moto G Sony Z Ultra LG G Pad 8.3 ANDROID ONE Micromax Canvas A1 Spice Dream UNO Karbonn Sparkle V MOTOROLA Motorola Moto X Moto X 2nd Gen.

HTC One (M8) is Here

HTC One (M8) is Here

  YES! The HTC One (M8) is here! Since last years announcement of the HTC One many have been waiting and curious about what HTC could do to raise the bar with the follow up to what is called the ‘Best phone of the year’. The HTC One of 2013 had many design features that made it stand out and earn a place at the top of handsets. It’s premium metal construction was a huge advantage to the competition, but also had some plastic pieces that many were hoping to be approved upon in the new design. With some leading edge innovative features included in the HTC One, the follow up device would have to step to much higher anticipated goals to keep the forward movement needed for HTC in the sales department. The new HTC One (M8) has stepped higher and brought a very high quality device to satisfy the highest critique. The Design The first look will relieve your anxious bones and satisfy your thirst for a beautifully crafted device. The HTC One is completely redesigned to have a 5 inch 1920 x 1080p 441 ppi screen compared to the 4.7 inch 1920 x 1080p 468 ppi screen of the HTC One M7. The size brings it along side many competitors devices and has the image quality to stand out as a leader. The screen tapers to thinner edges with softer curves to make the design feel smoother in the hand. Gone are the sharp edges, bringing a smooth small feel to the device. It now measures 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35mm (5.76 x 2.78 x 0.37 inches) and weighs 160 grams (5.64 ounces) making it bigger and heavier than the competition. Even though the device is bigger, I felt like it was smaller and lighter due to the nice form. HTC Sense is also in the new HTC One and updated to version 6 which HTC likes to call the Sixth Sense (they sure do). It now features customisable themes and colors. The HTC One will also be available in a Google Play edition which can be pre-ordered now and will soon be available on Google Play. One of the first design changes is the addition of a second camera on the back. This dual camera design captures depth imaging so that the pictures can be edited later for depth focus adjustments. This is done at the hardware level, not in software as other manufacturers have done. HTC has added some new effects called UFocus, Foregrounder and Dimension Plus. Ufocus allows you to change the perspective of the focus, Foregrounder allows you to change the subject or background for special effects. Dimension Plus allows you to view the photos from different angles by tilting the device. The auto focus operates at 300mseconds for fast focus. The flash adjusts to the light for better tone adjustments. They also added an integrated slow motion mode to edit the video and highlight even a part for slow motion effects. Zoe is going to change to a cloud based service which will also allow for friends to add pictures. Gestures HTC has added gesture control for simpler control. The device may be answered simply by placing the phone to your ear. The phone may be turned on by a double tap or...
