Google has teamed up with electronic artist Skrillex to launch the first in a series of "Edition" cases for certain phones.
Now on sale in the Google Store, the "Skrillex Live Case" is available in three different designs for Google's own Nexus 6 and Nexus 5, along with a trio of Samsung devices, including the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S5, and Galaxy Note 4.
Looking at the G4 next to the Nexus 5 shows just how much LG has changed without leaving the basics.
Everyone knows that Nexus phones are made with Google as the guiding hand, but you always see the basic design language from the manufacturer acting as partner for that release. You see this with each version in the Nexus line, but especially with the LG Nexus 5 and Motorola Nexus 6. Those who...
Now that Android 5.1 (still Lollipop) has been officially announced with a few new features and presumably a bunch of bugfixes, it's time for the updates to begin. As always, that starts with Nexus devices. And that means we can speed the updates along a little bit, if we're so inclined.
If you're the kind of nerd who doesn't mind a little sideloading or factory image action, go ahead and...
Google has released the first batch of factory images for the newly-announced Android 5.1 Lollipop for most capable Nexus devices.
Currently there are factory images available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 2012 (Wifi and 3G), Nexus 7 2013 (Wifi and LTE), Nexus 10 and even Nexus Player — but we're still waiting on the Nexus 9, sadly.

Google has released a new Android 5.1 build for both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 today.
Coming roughly a week after the last updated build for the Nexus 6, the new factory image for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 clocks in at build number LMY47I.
Pure Android, from Google
Google's Nexus devices are sold directly from the Google Play Store, unlocked and running the latest version of the Android OS — Android 5.0 Lollipop. The Nexus line consists of four current devices — the Motorola Nexus 6 and LG-made Nexus 5 smartphones, and but a single tablet — the Nexus 9.
Nexus 9: The Nexus 9 was announced on Oct. 15, 2014, and represents the first...
Android 5.1, the first Lollipop maintenance release, is on the way
Update: Google has officially announced Android 5.1 Lollipop, which will begin rolling out from today.
Original story: As tends to happen shortly before Nexus updates start rolling out, T-Mobile has updated its support documents with references to a new update for the Nexus 5. Android 5.1 Lollipop build LMY47D is to begin...
If you still want to get your hands on the older, but still solid, Nexus 5 smartphone from Google, you now have yet another chance. The Google Play Store has re-listed the phone once again at its $349 starting price, but only in the black color.
The Nexus 5 is the fifth phone in Google's Nexus line, and the second from South Korean manufacturer LG, following up the Nexus 4, released in late 2012. As is the case with previous Nexuses the Nexus 5 was the launch device for a new version of Android — in this case Android 4.4 KitKat. Naturally the Nexus 5 received an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop as soon as it was available in November 2014...
It looks like the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 on T-Mobile are slated to get an update to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop today, at least that's what T-Mobile seems to think. Support docs for both phones on T-Mobile's website list December 15th (that'd be today) as the roll-out date for the 5.0.1 update.
A year on — and with an all-new version of Android — how does Google's 5-inch handset measure up?
I've used the Nexus 5 — Google and LG's last Nexus collaboration — on and off for the past year. The phone never quite managed to become my daily driver, mainly due to underwhelming battery life and the arrival of newer, shinier things in the earlier part of the year. Regardless, the N5 has never...
The first Android 5.0 Lollipop factory images for the Nexus 5, 7 and 10 became available yesterday, allowing owners of those devices to manually update to the latest version of Android. If you're looking for a slightly easier way to sidestep the waiting process and get Lollipop on your Nexus right now, we've got the first details of over-the-air update (OTA) packages starting to trickle out. At...
New Android 5.0 Lollipop factory images for the Nexus 5, 7, 10 and 9
Android 5.0 Lollipop is upon us! The Nexus 9 tablet tablet has been on sale for a good while, but today the first Lollipop updates have started to become available for Nexus devices in the form of factory images. At the time of writing we're seeing Lollipop factory images for the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (Wifi-only, 2013 + 2014...
In a message on its community forum, Sprint claims that the Nexus 5 will receive its update to the "final" version of Android 5.0 Lollipop from today. The update to Android 5.0, build LRX21O, "will be rolled out to devices in batches," according to the carrier.
As promised, Google has just published an updated set of preview images for Android 5.0 Lollipop on the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013). The new developer preview is based on build lpx13d.
The first "Android L" developer preview arrived shortly after Google I/O, and was updated in early August with Google Fit support (and little else). It's unclear how much new stuff is in these latest preview...
If you accidentally damaged your Nexus 5 smartphone, you can get it replaced for free thanks to Google's new Nexus 5 replacement program, which is similar to what rivals HTC and Motorola are offering. The program went live without any announcement or much fanfare, though devoted Nexus 5 owners have confirmed on a Google+ posting in the Nexus 5 community page.
