Nexus 5 Review

The Nexus 5 may not be the next big thing from Samsung or Apple but it comes out of the shadows to be one of the premier smartphones on the market. Add in its very competitive price and high-end features and you have a phone that competes tech-wise and price-wise.

Right off the bat, the very first thing you see is the Nexus 5’s beautiful screen. This 1080p HD display measures in at 4.95 inches and is really something to see. This paired up with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and things move and look smooth on the Nexus 5, making it a sure bet for those who enjoy watching high quality HD video clips on their phone.

There is very little to talk about when it comes to downside with the Nexus 5 and they are nit-picky at best. The 2300 mAh battery could be bigger or more powerful as the battery life does leave something to be desired. This isn’t exactly the best world phone either with LTE only working in select regions. And call me pessimistic, but a phone that is priced this economically must have something missing. We have no reports or reason to believe that is the case, but it’ll be interesting to see just how durable the Nexus 5 is after a year or two in continuous service.

The Nexus 5 is an exceptional phone at a human price. It features high-end specs from screen to processor and performs with the best of them. The few flaws that are present are not even to really rattle me or deter me much. This is bang-for-buck the best phone you can pick up.

 

Pros

-Beautiful display.

-High-end processor.

-High-value purchase.

 

Cons

-Not the best battery.

-Limits to LTE.

-Price makes you think it might not be durable.
