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

As Applemania dies down a bit and Bendgate raises its head you’ve just got to love what some bright spark has done to Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory pointed to in this post by Andrew manning, and again when he compares the iPhone6 with the bendable LG G Flex, there’s been much talk about the Little Green Robot and Nexus 6 being a Motorola 5.2” - or is it 5.9” - or both - in this post by Stephen Lowe and my interest was sparked by Allen Cross’s post about Pocket Casts making it (in Beta at least) to your desktop browser of choice.
