The best places to splash the cash on your Android
The number one online fashion destination also has a brilliant app, giving you access to over 850 high quality brands on the go. It is super easy to search and pay for items, while you can also get customised push notifications on your favourite items.
Pre-loaded apps don’t cost you as much space as you might think.
Bloatware is annoying, but it isn’t the waste of space that you probably think it is. Having an app pre-installed does not eat into your available storage and uninstalling it will not free up space, even if you use a root-based method.
A device’s storage is partitioned into several sections. These include a data partition, the bit where all your stuff goes, and a system partition, where the OS is. Pre-installed apps go into the system partition. Uninstalling an app from here does free space in the system partition, but that space will not become available for anything else, so it’s a moot point really.
Incidentally, it’s the same with anything else that is pre-installed: ringtones, wallpapers, sample movies and so on. Sometimes these apps can be uninstalled, such as through the Play store by going to Settings>Apps and locating it there. If not, it can almost certainly be disabled in the same place.
The long-awaited Huawei Nexus 6P and LG Nexus 5X are unleashed
Google officially announced the two latest additions to the Nexus family by revisiting a former favourite and welcoming a new manufacturing partner to the party.
The Nexus 5 by LG was one of the most popular Nexus devices ever, so Google returned to the South Korean company to make the 5X, a mid-range, 5.2-inch handset. It contains a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 1.8GHz processor, the same as in the LG G4, and a reasonable 2,700mAh battery that supports Type-C and Fast Charging.
The 6P, meanwhile, represents a new direction for Google, trusting an up and coming Chinese manufacturer to make its flagship handset. This 5.7-inch monster sports a display running 518ppi and an enormous 3,450 mAh battery to keep it running.
