Google's latest Nexus is here - and it's a doozy. The Nexus 5 camera isn't without its compromises, but here's why megapixels matter less than stability.

When Nokia released its 12070 update for the Lumia 800, it was attempting to fix a few outstanding bugs in its Windows Phone smartphone. The update addressed power management issues, fixed some phone lock-ups, and was supposed to improve audio performance. It seems that in tackling that last one, though, Nokia ended up introducing some brand new glitches, and users noticed erratic volume behavior.

This means that there will be a refresh coming up which can either be rolled out later to all devices (in which case it could be the WiFi tethering update) or only limited to Vodafone and fixing [...]
