Nexus-5 have such amazing features that it surpasses all other android phones. With Samsung, Sony, Karbon, HTC ageing and Bloated features, this phone has suited me with Android. While considering the Fact that iPhone 5S is still in the market people will have a tough choice to make between these two giant sets. If someone would ask me where to switch Nexus or Apple, I would suggest him to go for Nexus. Let us see Why ?

It’s dominant options are:

It supports new version of operating system i.e. Android 4.4 KitKat which has very user friendly experience and all new generation features.
It support’s 2G/3G/4G/ so you may get high speed web and network facility.
Its 1080 HD screen resolution is fantastic as everything appeared much sharper over the screen.
Its stunning webpages and reading ebooks makes it easier for one not to look at  the desktop or PC.
It runs blazingly fast and transition Animation make screen more smooth and natural.
Its 8 MP camera, featuring a Carl Zeiss Tessar Lens with Pure View Camera Technology can create your photography even a lot more Clear.
Its  IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen and with Quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400, chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon and Adreno 330 GPU  justify What this phone is all concerning on the performance basis.
It is highly resistant to fingerprints, scratches And damages since it supports Corilla Glass 2.
It has multitasking and online game features like Temple Run, Flash Games etc.
Its Wireless charging feature is amazing with Unusual charging pad.

Drawbacks of Google Nexus 5:

The speakers Yes indeed too tranquil, quiet and of poor quality.
Nexus 5 Heats up too rapidly while playing games, this is due to poor optimization of Android 4.4.
The battery Life is indeed very poor, as a 2.3 GHZ Quad core processor, a 4.95 inches @ 1080 resolution with a 4G LTE antenna does not bind well with a 2300 mah battery
The Battery is not removable, so you have to charge it continuously.

Price and Availaibility:

The price range depends on the use of 16 GB or 32 GB, the former will cost you 349$ and the latter will cost you 399$. It is launched in the parts of USA and UK. But in India it has not come yet. Hope to see Google LG Nexus 5 in the market soon.

My Opinion:

As a user, I would suggest you to buy this new Version Android KitKat 4.4 and enjoy new taste of the highly best technology set asCompared to others. It has such amazing features that lacks in various other Android phones. Purchase it and enjoy KitKat taste this December.

  • I’ve been using the Nexus 5 for a few weeks now and I’ve to agree with you…it’s the best Android phone out there. Plus if you consider the awesome price tag, there’s no way you can look beyond the Nexus 5 in the high-end smartphone market.
