After the tremendous success of their top range smartphone Nexus 4, Google and LG once again decided to join forces and create the fifth generation Google phone - theLG Nexus 5, with impressive operating system update and more advanced features.
Nexus 5: One of The Best Android Smartphones in 2013
Google Nexus 5 was unveiled on October 31st 2013, and on the very same day it was available on Google Play online store in two colour options, black and white. As the name suggests, Nexus 5 comes with a 5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The design is quite simplistic and decent looking. The entire body of the device is made of soft plastic unlike the previous model, Nexus 4, which was made of glass. Under the hood there is a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with a 2.3 GHz quad-core CPU, 2 GB of RAM and a 2,300 mAh battery which corresponds to 17 hours of talk time and 300 hours of standby. Google offers two different storage capacity versions 16 GB and 32 GB, however there is no option of expanding the memory since the device lacks the memory card slot. Regarding the camera, on the back there is an 8-megapixel camera with optical stabilization and in the front you can find a 1.3 mega-pixel sensor. Google Nexus 5 was the first smartphone shipped with the new operating system Android 4.4 KitKat. Back to top
