Android Advisor - - Adroid Advisor -

It's that time of year again when Google lets us know ex­actly what it's got in store for An­droid. Google I/O was sched­uled to run just af­ter we went to press with this is­sue, and on the fol­low­ing pages we ex­am­ine ex­actly what we should ex­pect. It's more than likely we'll get a first glimpse at the forth­com­ing An­droid M OS (page 15), and although it may be too early for I/O we're al­ready hear­ing ru­mours of a new Nexus phone for 2015 (page 9).

But as well as look­ing at what's to come, we're cel­e­brat­ing what we've al­ready got. We had big hopes for the fi­nally an­nounced LG G4, but is it an­other flag­ship killer? Find out on page 58.

When you're at home you prob­a­bly switch to a Wi-Fi- rather than mo­bile con­nec­tion for get­ting on­line on your An­droid phone or tablet. It re­ally bugs us that in or­der to get Wi-Fi we also have to pay for a phone line we never use. But do we? We in­ves­ti­gate the al­ter­na­tives to ADSL on page 26.

If you are us­ing a mo­bile con­nec­tion, and par­tic­u­larly a 4G con­nec­tion, you might be won­der­ing about those ad­ver­tised high speeds. It's fast, sure, but there's an im­por­tant dif­fer­ence be­tween 4G and LTE. If you're not get­ting the speeds you ex­pect we ex­plain why not on page 39.

As al­ways, we hope you’ve en­joyed this is­sue of An­droid Ad­vi­sor. Feel free to send us your feed­back via face­book.com/An­droidAd­vi­sorUK or email marie_brewis@idg.co.uk.
