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...
Android 4.1.1 Rolling out to the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus
Those lucky enough to already have their hands on the Google Nexus 7 are in for a little bit of a treat today. A 12.6 MB over-the-air update has been pushed out, updating Google’s own tablet to Android 4.1.1, build JRO03C.
While there is no official changelog for the Nexus 7 update and the release notes are quite sparse, users upgrading to the latest build will immediately notice the appearance of Google Wallet on their devices. One can only wonder about the real life practicality in using a tablet to purchase an item when a phone would be far less cumbersome.
Since Wallet relies on an active Internet connection, and the tablet is not available with a cellular radio, one can only assume that this will get little use on most devices. [As pointed out by Lucian Armasu and Unlawful, Internet connectivity is apparently not required!]
Luckily, that’s not all for the Nexus line. As seen on the Nexus Google+ Page, Jelly Bean is starting to roll out to GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Previously, we wrote about how 4.1 was rolled out to takju devices following the keynote presentation on the first day of Google I/O 2012. Now it looks like yakju devices will be able to get in on the Jelly Bean fun as well. Curiously, my own JRN84D 4.1-laden takju device (courtesy of the aforementioned conference) reports that there are no updates available.
Wondering which Nexus devices will receive Jelly Bean next? According to Google:
If you’ve got a Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ device, you will receive a prompt alerting you to the update over the next several days. Up next for Jelly Bean: all Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Motorola Xoom and of course, Nexus 7, which will ship with Jelly Bean later this month.

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...
All of us here at XDA appreciate just how far Android has come. The incredible flagships of today come packed with bleeding edge technology and are hard to complain about, but it wasn't always like this. Tell us about the worst Android phone you've ever owned, and what made it so dreadful.
