Who Made the Best Nexus Phone of Its Time?

Who made the beat Nexus phone of its time? Perhaps different people have different answer. But the latest news from PhoneArena shows that LG has made a better Nexus than Samsung or HTC.

What’s interesting is that the second place has been taken not by a more modern phone like the Galaxy Nexus, but by the first Nexus ever – the Nexus One by HTC. This comes to show that smartphone users appreciate the quality design solutions – devices which not only pack the latest bells and whistles, but also have a premium look and feel to them. That last part is obviously something that Samsung is yet to master. For its next Nexus device, the Galaxy Nexus, Samsung had to streamline the design a bit, partly due to the new Android version the phone had to come with – ICS. This, combined with the fine specs and better overall execution allowed the Galaxy Nexus to position itself much higher than its predecessor.

It’s safe to say that LG has hit a very good balance between form and function with the Nexus 4. The phone is more appealing than the Samsung ones before it, and even if it doesn’t quite match the character of the Nexus One, it still has its incredible features and price to ultimately tip the scales in its favor.

Apple Wants Six More Samsung Products Added to Lawsuit, Including Galaxy Note II

It looks like Apple and Samsung have been keeping themselves busy with legal dealings during Thanksgiving and the days following the holiday. Just days after Samsung requested that the iPad mini, fourth generation iPad and fifth generation iPod touch be added to its lawsuit against Apple in California, FOSS Patents notes that Apple has fired back by asking that six Samsung products be included as well. Apple is seeking to add the Samsung Galaxy S III with Jelly Bean, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Galaxy Rugby Pro and Galaxy S III mini to the battle.

Apple actually already added the Galaxy S III to this very same, but we’ve recently seen the device begin to receive its update to Android 4.1 in several parts of the world, and so apparently Apple decided that it’d like to update its case with the newly-Jelly Bean S III. That also explains the Galaxy Tab 8.9‘s inclusion in this list, as the device was recently bumped from Android 4.0 Honeycomb to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The rest of the devices are likely just being added because they’re newly-released Samsung products, which is the same reason that Samsung recently targeted Apple’s new iPad models. This case between Apple and Samsung is scheduled to go to trial in March 2014, so expect to see more of this from both companies in the coming months.
