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.
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.
Summary: The fifth element. As early as the Nexus 4, Google has offered a price-competitive challenge to the rest of the smartphone manufacturing world. The current hardware flagship puts its direct competitors under powerful pressure, because the Nexus 5 offers extremely high-powered hardware and Google's...
Pros: Price, Android 4.4 KitKat, Workmanship quality, Color fidelity of the display, High display brightness, Updates provided, The price of the Nexus 5 makes for a very clear argument to buy. Google has once again made its price spiral down and made life difficult for its competitors. In addition, the...
Cons: Storage cannot be upgraded, Non-removable battery, Speaker sound quality, Google should either have made it possible to switch out the battery or provided a version with greater capacity. It is obviously possible, as the LG G2 proves.
Conclusion: Google has delivered an impressive smartphone with the Nexus 5 from LG, an unlocked powerhouse with a palatable price and solid performance, and the new Android 4.4.1 KitKat update largely fixes the phone's initial camera problems.
Pros: Killer price for an unlocked smartphone. 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. Middling voice quality through the microphone.
Excerpt: The Google Nexus 5 represents a number of firsts for the company’s mobile family and promises to deliver more to customers than any Nexus device before it. The design story of the Nexus 5 is one of two halves.
Pros: Android 4.4 KitKat is excellent, Stellar hardware, Great camera w/ OIS
Cons: Clunky design elements, SMS via Hangouts is awkward, Stock Android still playing catch-up
Summary: Still a solid smartphone, but it's no longer king of the price point
Pros: Great value, Lightning fast, Lovely screen, Android 4.4, A focus on the really important features means that the display and processor are still up there with the better smartphones around - the Nokia Lumia 930 sports the same Snapdragon 800 chip under the hood. The display is excellent for readi...
Cons: Average battery life, Low-light camera performance, No expandable memory, Better battery life is top of most people's wish lists when it comes to mobile technology and it's easily the worst thing about the Nexus 5. It's distinctly average, even with Project Volta in Lollipop. I'm used to a daily ...
Summary: Google’s Nexus smartphone has been going from strength to strength with each version and the new Nexus 5 has continued that tradition with style. The device has a 5-inch display and brings together the latest features including the brand new Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.
Summary: The basics The Google Nexus 5 is the follow-up to the Nexus 4. Like that phone, it's out to offer an attractive alternative to the kings of the Android world – phones like the Galaxy S4, the Xperia Z1 and HTC One.
Pros: They may be brothers, but the Google Nexus 5 looks and feels quite different from the Nexus 4. The glass-topped shiny back has been traded-in for matt plastic. It may sound sound too impressive, but its soft finish feels great on your fingers. The Nexus 5 is pretty slim and light too. At 8.6mm th...
Cons: The Google Nexus 5 is well-made, but it's not quite as impressive in-hand as the unibody aluminium HTC One. There's a seam around the phone's edge too, making it look less pristine than Nokia's plastic Lumia phones also. And though manufacturer LG has made the frame as narrow as possible for a fi...
Summary: For the latest Nexus handset, Google and LG have literally crafted a slightly smaller version of the G2 smartphone with buttons in the typical places that can be had for under $500.
Pros: Best value smartphone on the market, period, Excellent screen, Android 4.4 looks very good and is easy to use, Rubberised finish isn't as solid as metal, but the phone still manages to feel amazing in the hands, Fantastic Cat4 mobile broadband speeds
