Around the Corner
This week, we take a look at Huawei’s Honor 6

Community Corner

Andrew Manning reports on the Lenovo Vibe X2 Layered Phone whilst Taz Hoque notes the long-awaited Setting Switch Stock/Skin in the Lenovo Vibe Z2 and Lollipop bringing renewed love for SD Cards. Amongst others, of course, Tim Evans reports on the UK release price of the Nexus 6 and Juliet Purcell links to an article about Microsoft and DropBox getting into bed, the implications of that including a native WP app. Google continue to roll out app updates with Material Design ahead of Lollipop. Of note, Calendar, Camera, GMail, Maps, Newsstand, Drive via .apk files, but also now the Play Store itself. Lollipop seems imminent, though some Nexus owners are naffed off by reports that maybe Motorola (and even LG) devices will get it before they do! ...and finally, a Nokia Lumia 520 takes a bullet for a Policeman
