Google announces the Nexus 5 with Android 4.4.. (hands-on video) | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"It's about time. The Google-backed and LG-manufactured Nexus 5 is now really a reality, after countless rumors and leaks (a few of them coming from Google itself). The new device, which predictably boasts the latest and greatest version of Android known as KitKat (or 4.4, if you're so inclined), takes its place in the spotlight in place of the Nexus 4."

HTC One vs. LG G2.. Comparison Smackdown | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"In the culmination of our smackdown week where we pit the lovely new LG G2 against its three Android flagship competitors, the HTC One finishes the round. We and many other reviewers have been smitten with the HTC One's superb design, quality metal casing and clean Android build.

"Though the HTC One S is still a young phone at just over a year old, its update cycle has come to an end. HTC tells us that the One S will no longer be receiving updates, keeping it on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and Sense 4+ at the latest. The phone's 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM should have made it powerful enough to handle any Android releases coming down the pipeline right now, but.."

11 Best Android smartphones running stock Android | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"Not all Android smartphones are created equal. And yet most of the very best models that have ever come out have one common ingredient: the stock Android operating system. Indeed, many of today’s greatest Android phones have been made available with nothing more than the bare bones version of Google’s famed mobile OS. To some users, it’s like the secret sauce. And Google, along with today’s many different Android OEMs, is just all too glad to fulfill the demand."

"It’s fairly likely that at some point in the past, you heard the endless speculation over the mythical “Facebook Phone.” What was it? Who would make it? When would we see it released?

Well, the answers to those questions in order are: a phone, HTC and now. Now that the HTC First is out, the questions change. The first and most important issue is whether or not the phone is actually any good."

"Having a phone with a pure Android experience seems to be increasing in popularity with Google’s range of stock Android Nexus devices continuing to sell well, plus the release of Google Play Editions of several flagship phones. However there are many ways to get hold of a smartphone with stock Android. One way is to buy a device from a lesser known brand."

The HTC One Google Play edition offers the best of both worlds.. review

The HTC One Google Play edition offers the best of both worlds.. review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"So far, 2013 has brought with it a number of changes to Google's Android strategy. More and more apps and services are being separated from the core of the operating system to allow for easier updating. Google didn't take advantage of Google I/O to announce a new version of Android, and what we've seen of the rumored version 4.3 suggests that it will be a relatively minor update. And Google is working with its partners to sell versions of their high-end smartphones that run stock Android instead of those partners' respective Android skins."

While this type of device is popular among Android enthusiasts and gadget geeks, is the Ascend Mate enough to help Huawei break into a market currently dominated by Samsung and LG?"
