We’ve said quite a lot about smartphone theft here at wccftech. Smartphone theft is one of the unfortunate drawbacks of the advent of this technology. As your phones are able to do more, they also cost more. This leads to the misguided looking to make a couple of quick bucks a golden opportunity to cash in. When you loose your smartphone, not only do you incur financial losses but also put yourself at risk. Your phone undoubtedly contains sensitive data that anyone with malicious intent can use against you. Well, a safeguard for that is available. Well, its been available since last year and is called the Android Device Manager. With Android Device Manager, you can now easily protect your data with a few simple steps. Learn how to do that right here.

Google’s introduction of a flatter, simpler Material Design philosophy will be integrated in a variety of tech giant’s products including Android L, Android Wear, Chrome OS, and desktop applications. In the similar attempt, we have already seen Google+, docs, and sheets receiving some transformation. This is in essence to introduce beautiful, small transformation over the coming months and not change everything overnight which could definitely irk the users. Today, a new tease is making rounds which shows off a leaked version of Android L Google Play Store looking all perfectly artistic and beautiful with some amazing artwork thrown in in the background.

The leaked Android Google Play Store images definitely have managed to give an immersive look and feel to the OS refresh. Coming in to match the Material Design concept, Android L Google Play Store is beautifully placing the content at the front with a card layout while pushing the design elements at the back, still managing to keep the design enhanced and beautiful.

Android L Google Play Store:

Succeeding the Android 4.4 KitKat, Android L 5.0, supposedly named as Android Lollipop, is the biggest change that Google is introducing since Halo. Announced at Google I/O this year, the company focused exclusively on the Material Design throughout the different product launches and upgrades. It was apparent, hence, that Google will deliver updates from time to time to gear start a shift towards a new design era.

Launching the new Material Design philosophy, Google has successfully managed to introduce a platform consistent design overhaul to some extent. While Google may have started increasingly focusing on Android Wear, new Chrome design and taking living room more ambitiously, Android is definitely one of its strongest products. Being used by about a billion users, Android design change wasn’t only looked forward to, but will also be highly criticized as many wouldn’t appreciate it. As Google works tirelessly to launch Android L publicly and developers get ready with their delicious games, here is quite a tempting pictorial comparison of Android L vs Android KitKat.download Android L vs android kitkat

The attached gallery would hopefully help you see numerous small and large design changes that have been introduced with Android L. While we may not like all of them, it should be noted here that not all are final design changes. As Android L is in Developer Preview for now, you can expect to see a similar, and yet quite a different final product when Android L is launched in the fall.

Industry

Google purchased Nest this January for a modest $ 3.2 Billion. With the purchase of the company, it was also able to get its hands on the company’s founder, Tony Fadell. Fadell himself had already had an illustrious career in the tech industry. He is credited to have designed the iPod, Apple’s mp3 player that changed the way we looked at devices forever. In fact, he was also known to have charmed the impossible to please Steve Jobs himself. Now with Nest under its belt, the potential for Google to experiment with and develop automated homes is indeed unlimited. Currently, there are two automated home kits on the market, the other being Apple’s HomeKit. However, its Google’s Nest which ends up offering some very interesting features currently.

Learning how each phone component uses power, Android L has evidently improved battery life to as high as 36 whopping per cent! While we focused on how Google’s biggest mobile OS change will provide us better design, performance, and a feature-rich experience, Google did something even better: considerably better battery life. Here is how Android L could successfully manage to almost revolutionize smartphone battery life as we experience it. Android L Battery life

Every second of active smartphone usage reduces standby time by two minutes. Crazy, isn’t it? Thanks to Google’s Project Volta, we will experience a surprisingly better battery life in the next gen Android devices as it optimizes the power consumption by each component. Google in this year’s Google I/O conference at San Fran showcased that developer tools will help devs create more battery-efficient apps ultimately creating an entire ecosystem on the basis of a better knowledge of phone components and their energy usage leading to improved Android L battery life.

Android L and iOS 8 are set to see a fall release this year bringing up the regular Google vs Apple battle. This year is specifically more heated as Google has shifted its design focus to an entirely new era with Material Design. On the other hand, Apple made this shift last year with introducing minimal, flatter design philosophy for iOS 7. Apple is expected to make its iOS 8, thus, more features-rich than design-focused. The two new versions of rival tech giants do deserve a side by side, Android L vs iOS 8 comparison based on whatever we know so far.android l vs ios 8

This post is no way trying to take side of on mobile OS over the other considering the definite differentiating points of the both OS. However, you are free to stay on whatever territory you are as we are all well aware of how a mobile consumer is supposed to be either a crazy Apple fan or a maniac FAndroider.

Android L vs iOS 8:

One thing that was apparent in Google I/O this year was a focus on Material Design, introduced at the conference itself. From Android Wear to Android L, Google is gearing towards a complete ecosystem design shift. Offering consistency across Android, Chrome OS, Desktop, Chrome browser, and the Android Wear, Google aims to offer a user interface that is aesthetically clean and uncluttered.

With Nexus smartphones off the table, credible rumors have pointed towards the next Nexus tablet in the works. Google launched the Nexus 7 tablet last year and the tablet provided direct competition to Apple’s iPad series. However, Apple soon responded in kind, and launched the iPad Air and the iPad Mini with Retina display to compete with the growing popularity of the Nexus 7. Well it looks like both the companies are set to do the same again, with rumors pointing towards a Nexus 8 tablet in the works and two new iPads. So what we’ve done here is gathered all the rumors and made a comparison of the expected products.

A possible early look at the iPad Mini 3 and the iPad Air 2

A couple of days back we received a leaked photograph showing possible contenders of what the upcoming iPad Mini 3 and the iPad Air 2 might look like. There was also concrete word from the site androidpolice about HTC’s 9 inch Volantis tablet also dubbed as the Nexus 8 tablet. Starting from the processor of the two tablets, the iPad mini 3 is expected to come with a 64 bit A8 processor. Technical specification about the A8 are not yet known but as expected the processor will feature increased computing and graphics performance. The iPad Air 2 is also expected to be launched with the same processor. Coming towards the Nexus 8, androidpolice firmly belives that the tablet will be launched with Nvidia’s Tegra K1 ‘Logan’ 64-bit processor. This will be supplemented by 2GB of RAM.

After Google announced its latest big releases of Material Design and Android L, developers have been taking the code apart to see what’s inside. Android L developer preview can now be installed on Nexus devices as we shared a tutorial with you (read: Install Android L on Nexus 5 and Nexus 7).

Google brought the news of upcoming Android L this week at Google I/O conference 2014. Set to be publicly released in Fall, Google has released the latest mobile OS for developers so they could test it and create perfectly matching apps. Just kidding!

Here is how you too can install Android L Developer Preview on your Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 devices.install android L developer preview on nexus

How to install Android L developer preview:

Here are the steps to help you install Android L on your Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 devices. As for the usual prerequisites, keep the battery at a full charge (or 70% at least) and create a backup of your data.

Perhaps one of the best things that happened at this year’s Google I/O conference in San Fran – which by the way ran like a marathon, ugh! – is the brilliant new Android L. While we still do not even know the name of the upcoming Android L, a complete design overhaul was hugely expected this year from Google.

Keeping in line with Material Design, also showcased at I/O 2014, Google promises to give us an Android experience which is robust, cleaner and will help better the battery scenario. From power consumption to notifications, everything is being taken care of.download Android L

This year’s going-to-be best Android L will not be in our hands till far. The Android L preview is available for developers to make the most of it and create beautiful apps that match the entire L experience. While they do their thing, here is one easy way to get that pizzaz of Android L. Download Android L wallpapers, which are drop-dead gorgeous landscapes and digital abstract art, and get that zing of the upcoming Android experience.
