Ready for the next Google Nexus smartphone? The Nexus 5 smartphone was announced today and it features the latest hardware and software by Google and LG. This latest iteration of the Nexus smartphone will hopefully be what everyone has been looking forward to when upgrading to the latest device. But one thing is for sure, Nexus 5 is a true Android experience, like many Nexus devices.
The previous iteration, the Nexus 4, was quite a hit as it came at a lower price point with great hardware and offered a true Android experience. The Nexus 5 looks to continue the greatness but this time at a higher, market price point for such a smartphone. Like many high-end smartphones, the Nexus 5 will feature a 5 inch 1080P display, 2.3GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor by Qualcomm and 2GB RAM. At the same time, users will have the latest Android 4.4 operating system by Google, no bloatware that eats up memory space that will slow your device down in the future, how great is that?
Why stock Android?
With all the great Android smartphones out on the market like the Galaxy S4, Note 3 and HTC One, what makes the Nexus 5 that much better? For one, we find that the Nexus smartphone with a pure Android experience provides the best OS for the user as it lacks bloatware. Meaning that there is less memory usage that will prevent your device from slowing down over time as some users may experience on their Samsung Galaxy smartphones. The Nexus 5 also comes with the latest Android 4.4 (Kit-Kat) with all the latest features from Google. Other recent Android devices should be receiving 4.4 soon too but if you really want it now, Nexus 5 will be your best bet and will support future Android OS updates straight from Google. The Nexus 5 is a true Android experience that favours both casual and advanced users with it’s versatile features.
We also found that the Nexus 5’s edge to edge glass on the front adds a very nice display. The back’s silky smooth plastic makes the Nexus 5 feel great and easy to grip as well, something that’s really needed for these large 5 inch smartphones. But what we really enjoy about this iteration, like previous iterations of the Nexus smartphone, is the lack of any physical buttons on the front as all the navigation buttons are on the touchscreen.
Overall, the high end hardware specs, latest Android 4.4 OS and a very clean and easy to hold design makes the Nexus 5 a great smartphone to have. It’s true Android experience sets this device apart from other Android smartphones on the market.
