Nexus 6P

Apr-23-2016 By Maniha














Hi guys, I hope ya all are doing well. I was out of blogging since I lost my paternal grandfather on 7th April which was a big loss, so yeah it takes time, anyways few days back my daddy gifted me this Nexus 6P, it’s the first time I used a Huawei phone and it is super awesome.

The phone is too big, it’s even bigger than my tiny hands lol. Huawei is at the helm of creating what might feel like the most premium Nexus device yet, with the device featuring a full metal unibody design with flat sides, which helps with the handling of this large smartphone. The buttons are all on the right side, and offer a solid tactile feedback when pressed, while the power button is textured, making it very easy to find. The headphone jack is up top, and at the bottom is the USB Type-C port. It has a 5.7 inch display. Below it is the dual-front facing speaker setup. Above the logo is a finger print scanner. It has a 560 x 1440 resolution. The Nexus 6P comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, clocked at 2 GHz, and backed by the Adreno 430 GPU and 3 GB of RAM. Battery gets a huge boost, not only because of the large 3,450 mAh unit that the device packs, but also courtesy of a new power saving feature introduced with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, called Doze. Doze relies on all of the different sensors to put applications in a deeper state of sleep than usual. A 12.3 MP rear shooter tries to allow for more light to enter than before. 

Overall, the Nexus is a really amazing phone, i am quite satisfied with it, but you all should try it and go buy it.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow

android marshmallow

Hi guys, what’s up? How are you all? I hope you all are doing great right. Oooo another version of Android is here which has a even yummy name called “Marshmallow.” OMG marshmallow is my favorite, all these are going to give me a sugar rush, hahaha. Now coming to the topic, this is Android 6.0. 

Nexus 5x and Nexus 6P were the first to get Android Marshmallow. It has a battery that works smarter, not harder. It saves your battery for what matters most. When your device is at rest, Doze automatically puts it to sleep so your phone can actually go off your alarm even if you forget to charge it. Battery doesn’t drain from seldom apps anymore. There is no need to give apps access all the time. It lets you define what to share and when. You can simply use finger print scan to unlock your phone rather than having to type security passwords. It’s going to be great once people get it. I really hope to try it. 

Well, not many phones have gotten it yet, but might after some time. Have a good day. See ya.

Note 5

The Galaxy Note 5 is one beauty. The Galaxy Note 5 is still bigger but now slimmer which is framed by a sleek metal and glass. It comes with a S pen, it’s amazing to use it on a gorgeous surface. It’s more like an actual pen that writes just as well, you will never want to put it down. Battery life has been a bit improved now with fast charging. It’s awesome while listening to music, watching videos and making videos with it. You can snap photos without worrying about the light. It comes with all accessories so you can keep it charged, fully covered and fully entertained. It’s very simple to connect your phone with your laptop and sync stuff. Invite your family and friends to enjoy the photos and videos you took on your Galaxy Note 5. With one tap, it will all be on your TV. Samsung Pay is a hasstle -free and safest way to pay with fingerprint authentication and extra layers of security. The Galaxy Gifts is one of the best way to get free apps. There is 100GB of OneDrive Cloud which gives immediate access to your files.  Overall, am actually a very huge android fan, in my opinion, this seems like a great phone, I would love to try it out.

Android 5.0 lollipop

Dec-30-2014 By Maniha


It’s been a while, since the great version of the Android 5.0 lollipop released. I just recently got it in my LG G3, it’s going pretty good. Lollipop version offers a lot of things and it is much faster now. It has new features, thousands of APIs for the users. It brings material design to Android and gives you an expanded UI tool kit for integrating the new design patterns easily in your apps. New 3D views let you set a z-level to raise elements off. Built-in activity transitions take the user from one state to another with beautiful animated motion. Ripple animations are available for buttons, check boxes and another touch controls in your app. 

RenderThread keeps animations smooth even when there are delays in the main UI thread. It provides a faster, smoother and more powerful computing experience. It now runs exclusively on the new ART runtime built from the group up to support a mix ahead -of-time, just-in-time and interpreted code. ART improves apps performance and responsiveness. It introduces platform support for 64-bit architectures. Optimization provides larger address space and improved performance compute workloads. It also offers improved  A/V sync. Notifications are more visible,accessible and configurable. Varying notifications may appear on the lockscreen if desired by the user. Key notifications such as incoming calls appear in head-up-notification.

Android 5.0 introduces  a redesigned overview space that is more versatile and useful for multitasking. New APIs allow to separate activities in your apps.Android 5.0 adds new APIs that allow apps to perform concurrent operations with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), allowing both scanning (central mode) and advertising (peripheral mode). New multi-networking features allow apps to query available networks for available features such as whether they are Wi-Fi, cellular, metered, or provide certain network features. NFC APIs now allow apps to register an NFC application ID (AID) dynamically. A new audio-capture design offers low-latency audio input. The new design includes: a fast capture thread that never blocks except during a read; fast track capture clients at native sample rate, channel count, and bit depth; and normal capture clients offer resampling, up/down channel mix, and up/down bit depth.  It creates a secure work profile on the device. In the launcher, apps are shown with a Work badge to indicate that the app and its data are administered inside of the work profile by an IT administrator. It allows you to add screen capturing and screen sharing capabilities to your app. In Android 5.0, a new tilt detector sensor helps improve activity recognition on supported devices, and a heart rate sensor reports the heart rate of the person touching the device. That’s all about it.
