Google Nexus 5 Review
9 May 2014
Summary: At $399, the 32GB Nexus 5 is easily the best value for money on the smartphone market today, but it’s not even close to being the best smartphone. Whether that crown is worn by the more premium LG G2, the compact and intuitive Moto X, the vastly-improved Note 3 or the gorgeous iPhone 5s is up to the buyer, but the Nexus 5 forces too many compromises to make me a permanent convert.
Summary: The LG Google Nexus 5 phone is a high performance smartphone that will not let you down as it comes at a very affordable price when compared to mobiles with the same configuration. You will get a very good display as well, but a bit disappointing camera.
Pros: Very powerful processor, latest Android 4.4 KitKat, full HD display and affordable price
Cons: Unimpressive camera and without additional memory slot.
Google Nexus 5 is an excellent smartphone and a better value
9 January 2014
Summary: Strong performance, high-end specs, and an ultra-affordable price make the Google Nexus 5 not just the best unlocked phone on the market, but the best Nexus phone by far.
Pros: The Google Nexus 5 has LTE for multiple carriers, a sleek and solid build, and an excellent price. It makes crystal-clear calls, battery life is long, and integration of Google Now is deep and wide.
Cons: The Nexus 5's screen is dimmer than its competitors' and its camera struggles under auto settings. While an important OS update, Android 4.4 KitKat is more conceptual than feature-rich.
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 ).
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.
Excerpt: On October 31st, Google finally revealed the Nexus 5. The device was tied to multiple rumors for months on end, and finally all came to an end on Halloween, and along with it was a chocolaty Android 4.4 KitKat software update to the Android OS.
Summary: While many enthusiasts eagerly awaited for the next Nexus device after the LG Nexus 4, the lead up to the debut of LG Nexus 5 was riddled with information leaks that the official announcement did not come as a surprise for many. We recap the important leaks to recount the buzz surrounding this device. Rumors surfaced in the beginning of the year when LG was reported to be the manufacturer of the Nexus smartphone .
