The Nexus 4 was one of the best Android phones in the market when it was released, except one disappointment, which was the exclusion of 4G LTE. Google finally corrected that mistake this year with the release of the Nexus 5 and also included a number of other amazing specs as well.
The Nexus 5 costs the same as the Nexus devices always do- $349 off contract- and it’s far from being a cheap device. It has a resolution of 1920 x 1080p with 445ppi, even better that the Galaxy S4 and HTC One’s Google Play edition.
The display has been increased to 4.97 inches and it is even a bit slimmer and lighter than the Nexus 4. The body is still made of plastic.
The size and weight of the phone fit right in where they should, and it looks really good and sleek. Unarguably, it cannot match the Moto X in terms of Style, or the HTC One in terms of sheer build quality, but offering such specifications at this price, I would definitely opt for a Nexus 5.
The Nexus 5 is powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor which is one of the best processor in the world right now. It also includes 2 GB of RAM. Even the base model of the Nexus 5 comes with a 16 GB storage space, i.e., there is no 8 GB model anymore.
Google says that it has made significant changes to the camera and it includes built-in optical image stabilization now. The lens is brighter than the one in Nexus 4. The Nexus 5 will be coming with Android 4.4 KitKat OS out of the box.
