LG Google Nexus 5 (Sprint)

  • Excerpt: If your teen is cuckoo for Android, chances are they know the difference between stock Android and the various skins each cell phone manufacturer slap onto their versions of the operating system. Stock Android, you see, is generally regarded as best, but the only devices that have stock installations are Google’s Nexus devices.

Expert Review

2 February 2015
  • Summary: For $350 off-contract, the Nexus 5 is a good deal if you want to buy and own a smartphone. When compared against the phones you can get for under $200 on-contract, however, it shows its weaknesses. Consumers tend to think about two things above all else when picking a new smartphone: battery life and the camera. The Nexus 5, unfortunately, underperforms on both counts.
  • Pros: A beautiful screen, a simple yet comfortable design and a powerful processor make playing with the new version of Android a joy.
  • Cons: The Nexus 5's camera is substandard, and its battery life is among the worst you'll find.

  • Summary: With Google ‘s recent announcement of the Nexus 6 , many Nexus fans are left wondering what their other options are. Google did things a little differently this year with their flagship, bringing a much higher price point and larger screen size to the new device. These two factors, unsurprisingly, aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. So what do you do if you want an inexpensive phone that can still receive timely updates? Google’s Nexus 5 still may be a viable option.

Google Nexus 5 (Sprint)

PC Magazine
15 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Sprint's Google Nexus 5 remains a blazing-fast, pure Android smartphone with support for the company's budding Spark LTE network, but it's not as good a deal as its unlocked counterpart.
  • Pros: Sprint Spark LTE support. Fast next-generation CPU and GPU. Beautiful full HD display. Android is better than ever with 4.4.1 "KitKat," and the camera is much improved. Solid battery life.
  • Cons: Hardware still isn't quite class-leading on all fronts.

Google Nexus 5

10 January 2014
  • Summary: The Google Nexus 5 is an excellent choice if you want a high-end Android phone but don't want to spend £500. It has a great screen, great software and as much power as the top-end Androids. It doesn't have the best camera or the best battery life, but it's top value if you’re buying SIM-free nonetheless - let’s just hope contract offerings will prove as affordable.

Google Nexus 5 Review

2 January 2014
  • Summary: Despite having a steeper price tag here in the PH, the Google Nexus 5 proves to be worth it. For $349, it’s god-like and for Php20k+, it still kills. The Google Nexus 5 is exclusively available from Smart with a suggested retail price of Php22,495 for the 16GB model (also free on Smart UnliData Plan 1500 ).

The Boy Genius Report
25 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Remember when I said I couldn’t put Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 down ? Well, I put it down. After months of rumors, leaks and speculation, Google finally took the wraps off of its new Nexus 5 smartphone last week and Android fans were elated. The sleek new handset started selling out in mere minutes and by the end of the day, it would be weeks until new orders of some Nexus 5 builds would be dispatched.

Google Nexus 5 – Review

Review guidelines
24 December 2013
  • Summary: The performance of the Nexus phone 5 has proven interesting, with a good-quality sound through the integrated capsule (a little less through the handsfree speaker) and an equally good performance of the signal. How autonomy, the Google Nexus 5 remains in line with expectations, thanks to the built-in battery 2,300 mAh, ensuring a working day, although much depends on the type of use. The smartphone supports, moreover, also the wireless charging with a compatible base.
  • Pros: Latest version of Android KitKat, Full HD screen, good performance, quality / price ratio enviable.
  • Cons: Absence of earphones, a few bugs though largely been resolved with the update to version 4.4.1 of the OS, Fewer noble materials compared to the Nexus 4.
