A Few Minutes With the Galaxy Nexus And HTC Sensation XL At The London International Technology Show

So, I popped over to the London International Technology Show today over at the Excel centre in East London to have a nose around and see if anything interesting was showing.

Although the show was heavily custom PC based, there were a few phones around including the new Google flagship phone, the much hyped Nexus Prime (or Samsung Galaxy Nexus) and HTC’s latest flagship Android device, the HTC Sensation XL.

Given that there are only a handful of the Nexus Primes floating around the country and only one on show here, I took the opportunity to grab it whilst I could and have a quick look. The device features a 4.65 inch 1280 x 720 Super Amoled display and dual core Cortex A9 processor but even with these impressive stats, I found the screen a bit dull and navigating around the phone not as snappy as I would have expected. Additionally, I was disappointed with the casing, which felt a little cheap and plasticky – a bit like the SGS2. However, some good news about the device – I was assured that the battery life is much better than the SGS2 (i.e. it would last at least a day with ‘normal’ use). 

In comparison, the HTC Sensation XL, with it’s 4.7 inch 800 x 480 display appeared more vivid and bright and with the smooth aluminium white back casing felt solid and of higher quality in the hand. Running surprisingly on a single core chipset, the phone was responsive on Gingerbread with HTC Sense. One of the features for the HTC Sensation XL is the link with Dr Dre Beats and the special edition version comes with a pair of Beats Solo headphones which were also on display.

The Nexus Prime is due for UK release at the end of the year whilst the HTC Sensation XL is due for release here next month.

Thanks to the staff at Dialaphone for their time.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
