The Nokia X has already been hacked to load Google Apps, Now and access the Play store


There’s a theory that if you make Android look enough like Windows Phone, that users will grow accustomed to the interface, and when it comes time to upgrade, seek to scratch that tile-shaped itch. That’s the view Steven Elop gave us in our recent interview at MWC at least. There is another theory: finally Nokia Android handsets are here, and no matter how you dress it up, users want all the apps that come with it — not Nokia’s curated store. Enter xda-developers, the forum that works tirelessly to bend wonky Android interpretations back into unmodified shape. This time it’s user Kashamalaga who has figured out how to make the freshly minted Nokia X play nice with Google Apps, Google Now, and even the Play store. Could free and easy (no sideloading) access to the full gamut of Android apps actually work against Elop’s “gateway drug” approach? It’s hard to say. Though once again, the dev community provides an answer for those that play fast and loose with their OS loyalties.

For the record: the Samsung Galaxy S5 actually has 10.7GB free on the 16GB Version


samsung galaxy s5Despite not even being official for a week, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has already had its fair share of criticisms, ranging from its appearance to the fact that people think it hasn’t innovated enough from its last iteration. One particular sticking point that has caught everyone’s attention is the fact, as discovered by Android Central, that the devices seen at MWC 2014 only had 7.86GB of its total 16GB available for use. Understandable, the community was slightly outraged: having less than half the available space available for use is slightly ridiculous, even by Samsung‘s standards, and for most people was just another nail in the coffin for the Galaxy S5. Well, you can put your hammers away, for not anyway, as the record is about to be set straight.

samsung galaxy s5While the devices at MWC 2014 did indeed only have 7.86GB free, quite a lot of the space being taken up was content that was only there for MWC and the Unpacked event. What this means is that the device will actually have quite a lot more free space on the 16GB model, 10.7GB in fact, and while this still pales in comparison to the amount of free space available to other device, least of all Nexus devices, this amount is still much better than the 9GB left by the Galaxy S4.

So there you have it: the Galaxy S5 isn’t as much of a storage hog as we previously though, so there shouldn’t be any more reservations with getting the 16GB version. Are you more convinced to get the Samsung Galaxy S5 now that you know you actually have internal storage space to play with? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Bing search gets a scientific calculator almost two years after Google


If Bitcoin currency conversion is too trivial a use for you, loyal Bing user, perhaps the addition of a calculator will help solve the equation of your unhappiness. Simply type a math problem into Microsoft’s search engine and, as Windows Phone Central has noticed, an interactive scientific calculator will pop up with the answer. From there you can do as much math within a browser tab as your non-Googling heart desires. WPC also notes that while the calculator interface won’t be making its way to Windows Phone, entering a math problem into the mobile flavor of Bing will still return the answer to your query. It’s no graphing calculator, to be sure, but Mountain View wasn’t built in a day, either.

[RUMOUR] We could be seeing the LG G3 as soon as June 2014 according to Source


lg g3We’ve heard of rumours surrounding another LG flagship emerging early in 2014 to replace their current flagship, the LG G2. This device, presumed to be named the LG G3, was said to be announced in May 2013, but according to another source that spoke with Giga.de, we can expect the follow-up to the G2 to come in June 2014. The source, who wanted to remain anonymous, also mentioned that the device would be equipped with a new device; whether this means a different screen-size, screen resolution or screen-type is up for interpretation.

While it’s hard to say whether this or previous rumours are correct, but seeing as even Sony has announced its mobile strategy to comprise of bi-annual flagships, it’s entirely possible for us to see LG launching a new flagship sometime in the middle of 2014 in an effort to catch up to Samsung. The general theory of this would be to release another flagship device with mostly the same design by with updated hardware, and with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 on the horizon, that doesn’t sound like a bad strategy to try and catch that train.

What do you think about this rumour? And do you think launching flagships in such close proximity to each other will help or hurt LG’s position in the market? Let us know your opinion.

Nokia X gets rooted bringing custom ROM and Google Services


One of the best things about Android is the customisation options available. So when the Nokia X was announced only for it to be confirmed there would be no Google services integration, developers everywhere simply took that as a challenge.

Nokia still make arguably the best hardware out of all smartphone manufacturers, and fans have been longing for a Nokia running Android. However, given the integration with Microsoft, Nokia chose to remove the Google services (Gmail, Play Store etc.) and go with Windows services instead.

Luckily, developers have already rooted the Nokia X and ported a custom ROM to it bringing across Google services in the process.

Using a tool called Framaroot, the guys over at XDA Developers managed to obtain root access to the device and port over a custom ROM, so now you can enjoy the full Android experience complete with Google services on the Nokia X.

The Nokia X as standard comes with its own store whereby developers would submit their Apps to the Nokia Store, which Nokia says can be done without rewriting any code. Whilst not a huge deal, cutting out Gmail and the Google Play Store is a big loss.

Nokia X devices are currently only shipping to developers, but this news means for those wanting a full Android experience can now have it.

Game Insight’s Cloud Raiders Game Review


Being a massive fan of strategy games, when Game Insight recently released their Cloud Raiders game for Android, I had to play it.

You are required to battle armies of sky pirates to defend your base, as well as other players in the game in the PvP mode. You’re able to form clans in Cloud Raiders to cooperate attacks in raids for devastating effect.

Screen Shot 2014-03-01 at 10.15.42

Cloud Raiders very much follows the same layout and progression as the popular Clash of Clans, but it’s different enough to stand out on its own. The graphics are brilliant, and it is very responsive, with the gameplay being addictive to want to come back and keep playing.

Cloud Raiders includes bosses and pirate overloads which will test the strength of your base defences and army which can be made up of cannons, troops, and special powers. The game also features an upgrade path, so you can develop your units and builder larger armies for increased attack and defence.

Screen Shot 2014-03-01 at 10.15.57

The Aoo is available for free from the Google Play Store for Android, and will soon be released on other mobile and social platforms.

Steam Family Sharing exits beta, lets your borrow all of your friends’ games


One of the inherent drawbacks of digitally distributed games is that you can’t loan them out to friends, but Steam has rewritten the rules a bit. Now that Valve’s Family Sharing feature is out of beta, pretty much anyone can authorize another user — that they trust with their account and its attached reputation/information — and their device to “borrow” a game from their library. It’s taken a few months to happen, but if your best Steam buddy owns Rust, you should finally be able to give it a shot before plunking down the cash for it yourself.
