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“.
It only makes sense to have the highest twitter account per capita in the world align with the highest smartphone penetration in the Middle East, according to Mideast Times. Kuwait has a whopping 212% smartphone penetration coming first place with Saudi coming second place with 188%. This means the average person in Kuwait owns two phones.
I remember a few companies tried installing charging stations before but didn’t work out for them, back in the day when Al Fanar Cinema was the hit, it had a charging station but you had to constantly check on your phone since it could get easily stolen, this charging station however is different. I’ll bullet point my thoughts:
- Locks your phone in a box, people can’t steal it but you can’t use it while it’s charging either
- Way overpriced, 10 mins of charge is 250 fils, 40 mins of charge is KD 1. A small portable pack costs KD 0 per charge and is 100% cheaper
- I guess it’s only worth if I had an emergency and no other way to charge my phone

Just last month I wrote about how Saudi Arabia was lucky to get in the list of accepting money from apps on Google Play. Google has now announced that Kuwait and UAE can now release paid apps. I know many developers that have been waiting for this. I might release a paid app for the fun of it, get 1 download (myself).
