Red Nexus 5 from Sprint will be Out on February 4

red nexus 5

A new Sprint Droid variant, in the form of the red Nexus 5 is coming to stores on February 4th.

Old rumors have stated that new color variants of the Nexus 5 will be coming this year. Then, later reports have proven that the speculations were untrue. However, a red version of the Nexus 5 was never ruled out.

Recently, we were able to confirm that the red Nexus 5 indeed exists through an announcement from Sprint. Apparently, Sprint has announced the launching of the device very early to prepare its employees for its big launch, so as not to replicate the issues that they encountered when they were about to roll out the Nexus 5.

The red Nexus 5 is perfectly timed for the love month so it is expected to receive a warm welcome from buyers when it comes out.

Where to Get LG Coupons to Avail Discounts

lg coupons

If you are looking to get absolute savings the next time you buy a Smartphone or any electronic devices, better keep an eye out for LG Coupons that will let you unlock discounts or even freebies at the take out cart of LG’s online store and other participating merchants in the Internet.

Based on experience, here are the top three sites I can recommend (aside from the website of LG) which will let you avail coupons and codes that you can use to get discounts on your electronic item purchases at LG:

RetailMeNot

The RetailMeNot website is by far the most reliable for me since it has a high success rate and it has a feedback system that will let you see how others who tried its codes and coupons fared. This way you can save time because you can easily distinguish which codes are still working, expired or bogus.

Coupons.com

This website has a high success rate too because it is updated regularly but its lack of feedback system will give you a little trouble sorting out the working codes from the expired or fake ones.

Savings.com

The name itself says it all. However, despite having a good feedback system, many of the codes are not updated. Then again, you can find many codes here that the two sites above do not offer.

If you hate waiting just to update your Nexus device, there is an easy way to trigger it manually. This can easily be accomplished by entering the ADB sideload Android terminal command according to a post in AndroidCentral.

Here are the steps that you should do to trigger updates in your Nexus device using an Android terminal command:

  • Download the update from a reliable source then save it to your computer. Remember not to unzip the folder that came with it.
  • Connect your Smartphone to your computer using the USB cable.
  • Enter Recovery Mode.
  • Select “apply update from ADB”.
  • Use any of the Android terminal command that you are familiar with like the ADB push command, pull command, devices command and others.
  • In the command line, type “adb sideload xxxxxxxx.zip”. The “xxxxxxxx” variable correspond to the filename of the zipped file you have downloaded.
  • The last process will be automated so all you have to do is wait for it to finish.

Georgia Ranking

Of the 50 US states, Georgia has been ranked as number 28 healthy states. The research conducted by George Mason University released and conducted results based on a number of factors.

Some of the factors that were considered include the cash solvency, budget solvency, long run solvency and service level solvency.

The fiscal study was conducted with the aim of assessing every state’s ability to run and manage itself. The data used was obtained from the 2012 financial reports from every state.

Georgia being in the middle in health implies it is not doing so well and neither is it so bad, it remains to be seen whether this will change in the years to come.
