As impressive as this sounds, I know there are going to be a lot of people complaining regardless. Specially since ever since the start of the new year, internet has been very unstable. Kuwait ranked 2nd from 166 countries according to the 2014 information society report by ITU. First place was Macao, China and the 3rd place went to Singapore.
I love Google Maps and I use it a lot, but at times it picks a terrible route. This happened to me yesterday, instead of telling me to turn right on the round about and reach my destination, it instead gave me an additional completely useless 2 minute drive, only realized when I was half way through.
Well finally, I know it’s not Kuwait but at least someone close by has Google Street View. Though I think Kuwait’s government wouldn’t allow Street View, for security reasons probably. You can now get a street view of places in Dubai like Sheikh Zayed Road, Downtown Dubai, Al Sufouh, Dubai Marina, Business Bay and more.

I have no idea why this feature from Google isn’t as popular as it should be. If you use gmail, all your search terms are recorded for your reference and only you can see them. I could go way back and see what I searched for in 2007, 7 years ago. Make sure you’re logged in then goto http://history.google.com/. For some of you, be prepared for a lot surprises.
It’s just too large for my liking, every person has a certain screen size limit they’re uncomfortable going over. For me it’s 5.2 inches, I found that out after using the LG G3, it’s just too big and when I go back to using my 5.2 inch LG G2 it just feels better, so I can’t start to imagine a 6 inch screen.
Having said that I think it’s the best looking Nexus ever to be released. To me, the QHD is irrelevant, it takes more battery life while slightly giving you a crisper screen. I’d rather stick to 1080p HD and get hours more of battery life.
Loving the big battery, although LG decided to stick to 3,000 mAh on their latest flagship, the Nexus 6 went all in with 3,220 mAh of battery juice. The turbo charging is really handy too, I guess it can charge faster than 2.0 amp per minute? Never seen a phone do that before.
I’m okay with the improvements on Android Lollipop, I don’t see it as a break-through, I haven’t spotted any clever new features. I’m still waiting on LG to announce when they’re going to release Android Lollipop on the LG G3, hoping to have a more smoother interface.
This is a great idea I’ve long been waiting for. Ever since I started using wireless charging I fell in love with it, mind you iPhone users. It would be super convenient to jump in the car, put my phone next to me while it charges automatically while receiving calls via Bluetooth on the car’s speakers. Except I don’t want a Cadillac, hopefully all car brands will implement wireless charging soon.
I passed by X-Cite the other day and found out about a different kind of warranty which people has been asking for. The warranty covers liquid spills, electric surge, broken display, cracks and other accidental damages. They’ll fix it for free, but I think only once. This makes me not worry about my phone’s screen when I get a new phone.
I wrote about Pressy a year go when it was just introduced, I ordered one and was super excited to get one. Now that I finally got my hands on it, I jumped from super excited to super disappointed. Simply put, it doesn’t work at all on my LG G2. I haven’t tried all the functions but I couldn’t even get passed the tutorial.
Not only is it completely useless on my end, it also adds a significant bump to my phone. When I initially wrote about Pressy, I got the impression it’s so tiny it will barely add a curve to your phone. Pressy app which does the functions has more than 550 1/5 ratings, which is terrible. I’m sure many are facing similar issues.
Update: Got an LG G3 and it’s just as useless, even worse it won’t attachment firmly. It can easily fall off and get lost, which isn’t a big issue since it doesn’t even work. If you though I was a bit harsh you should see what Android Police had to say about Press, “Pressy Review: I Had No Clue Something Could Suck This Badly“.
