Google Nexus 5 reviews are all praise for it. Here we take a look at its specs, features & price

Google’s Nexus 5 from LG is a very good smartphone, but it has its share of blemishes tso it does not turn into a dream phone altogether.

At $349 for 16GB and $399 for 32GB, Nexus 5 offers a very attractive bargain for the amount of impressive specs that are on offer with Nexus 5. And with Android 4.4 Kitkat, the experience is unmatched.

The display and speed and performance is unmatched, though camera performance is not quite what it should be. Voice quality appears great over Jawbone Era Bluetooth headset, but through the microphone a lot of disturbance is registered.

The next generation Nexus boasts a 1080p 5-inch display and LTE support.

The phone is impressively designed and has a very well balanced body. With a measurement of 5.43 by 2.72 by 0.34 inches (HWD) on comfortable, rubberized soft touch housing, it feels lighter than the iPad.

The left side has the volume rocker switch, the top has a 3.5mm headphone jack, and the right side has the Power button with a micro-SIM slot below it. The lower end houses the microphone and the mono speaker.

The display is an impressive HD IPS display of 1,920-by-1,080-pixel resolution. The tight 445ppi over Corning Gorilla Glass 3 shows breathtaking images. The on-screen keyboard is user-friendly.

There is the usual built-in sensors including GPS, gyroscope, accelerometer, compass, proximity, ambient light, pressure, and a new thing called Hall Effect that detects magnetic field changes. Would be useful if an android used it.

All this is powered by 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a 450MHz Adreno 330 GPU, and 2GB RAM.

There is also the interesting “OK Google” voice activation service, but it only works when the phone is on and unlocked.
