A Complete Review On Nexus 5 - Specifications, Price And Other Details.

This was the most anticipated phone in this year. It redefined the value for money concept entirely and made every other smarties out there in the marker to re-evaluate their prices. It is nothing but Nexus 5. Guys its been a while and here i am gladly back in action with the full review of Google Nexus 5.

Nexus 5 : Specifications

Starting of with specifications the Nexus 5 runs on the Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset with a quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU along with 2GB of RAM and the Adreno 330 GPU. A 2300mAh battery powers the Nexus 5. It has a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. Got 8MP front and a 1.3MP rear camera. Running on Android 4.4 Kitkat the smartphone has 16/32GB built-in storage with no expandable options.

Nexus 5 : Design And Built Quality

Now lets jump right into its design and built. The best way to describe the design is by saying that it really comes with a minimalistic profile. One thing that surprises us is how light and comfortable the phone feels. The phone is bigger than its predecessors but is slimmer and lighter. We expect a bit weight for a 5 inch phone but however when i picked it up it felt as light as a feather which is quite cool. It has just 8.6mm thickness and 130 grams. It is not the slimmest but the lightest smarties with 5 inch out there. In spite its 5 inch display it is quite easy to get around all the elements in the screen. With its candy bar form factor it fails to be stylish and sexier like HTC One. On the top we got 1.3MP front facing camera and right next to it the earpiece grove which is actually perforated. On the right side there is a power button and the sim tray below it. Opposite to the power button on the left side there are volume rockers. Going to the back Nexus 5 is available in two variants black and white. In reviewing this unit i felt that the black is way cooler than white. It has a rubberised finish with the word "NEXUS" in landscape mode and a large camera lens unit. As always the back panel is not removable denying the access to battery and expandable storage options.

The build of the smartphone is sturdy but the design is so simple. Overall If you are looking for a smartphone to make a style statement, the Nexus 5 may not be the best option to look at. But it is slim and light and if you consider what it is capable of , the style option will not a problem.

 Nexus 5 : Display Features

Now powering on we can enjoy the near 5 inch IPS Plus HD display which is capable of 1080p resolution at 445 pixels per inch. LG is not strange when it comes to great displays and this phone is no exception. The display is same as that of LG G2 in paper. However, the smaller display of Nexus 5 increases the ppi a little bit. The display does a nice job with pretty beautiful quality. The colours are vivid, looks visually rich on displays and have great viewing angles. Even under direct sunlight with full brightness you can enjoy the videos with superb colouring. Thanks to 445 ppi the texts are crisp and sharp along with nice contrast due to some deeper black. So we don't have to strain our eyes more during reading and net browsing. Apart form that the screen handling is also nice. All in all we are looking at a pretty stellar screen that is capable of a lot and deserves to be on a device like nexus 5 considering its price point.

Nexus 5 : Performance

Getting to the performance aspects we are being here introduced to the Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset with a quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU along with 2GB of RAM and the Adreno 330 GPU. It is no surprise that Nexus 5 flies through every task that we throw to it. When i try to do a lot of things at once with all new optimizations and smooth transitions it really make my experience really very seamless. Inspite of the heavier workload this device manages to deliver a smoother and faster performance. This is truly one of the best smoothest and best experience on android available on any smarties today on the market.

Gaming Performance

Now as a gamer looking  at its gaming capability it was a real pleasurable experience. Every single one of the games that i throw to it ran very smoothly and it was a treat to game on the smartphone. Real Racing, Temple Run, Angry Birds, Dead Trigger, Nova 3 and a whole lot more ran at full graphics and there was literally zero lag while playing. They all ran very well.

Nexus 5 : Camera

Moving to camera we can say that its average. With 8MP camera on the back, packed with the optical image stabilisation you don't expect to win any awards but i say it is quite sufficient to capture your moments. The stock android app is very minimalistic and cumbersome to navigate. The picture quality in general is only average. But during broad daylights you get a generally good picture. Surely HDR plus does a decent job to provide you a better picture with vibrant colours. But as light diminishes so does the picture quality. The addition of optical image stabilization and the slightly fine-tuned algorithm results in punchier shots with pleasing colours and optimal contrast. OIS helps the camera to keep the ISO in check when shooting in low-light, resulting is low-light shots with lesser noise and more details. But these do not help Nexus to be an above average shooter as we have seen much better cameras in other flagship models.
The videos are comparatively good and smooth with nice quality. One great feature of the OIS is that it can stabilize videos during recording and provide you a pretty damn smooth video. The camera doesn't really amaze us and it is not a rotten egg either to take a quick shot where ever you are. As said earlier it is more than enough to capture your daily moments.

Nexus 5 : Storage And Other Misc Features

As said the Nexus 5 is available on two options black or white and 16 or 32 GB storage. It also comes with a 4G connectivity. Although 4G is not widely spread in india having LTE in a phone like this makes it a future proof point and it is really big plus. Another feature that makes it future proof is the wireless charging.

The only disappointing aspect is in the speakers and the sound quality that it makes. The speakers have been relocated to bottom which is a nice change  yes. However the sound lacks some dimension and it is not loud as we want.

Nexus 5 : Battery Features

And then there is our battery which comes at 2300mAh. In spite of this small capacity i held hope to the Kitkat as i expect that it comes with a lot of power setting optimizations. But sadly when it comes to its execution i didn't get as i expected. The Nexus 5 lasted for 5 hours in our continuous video playback. This means that the smartphone can last for an average day of use but you will have to keep the brightness low and kill apps running in the background frequently. We could get enough juice for a days decent work out of this but when you up your usage level you will see how short life it has. The battery life of the Nexus 5 is a bit less compare to other smarties of same range.

Final Words

All said and done, if you want a smartphone that is well built, has the latest specifications and runs apps well, then the Nexus 5 is the smartphone for you. With its lightness and also its simple design ,which i think as a strong suit than a weak point ,this phone definitely feels like a small box of lighting in my hand especially when you consider everything that it is capable of. With its speedier performance, vivid display and Android kitkat on board yeah this is definitely the right catch. But also there are cons such as lacklustre camera and average battery life. But after considering the price point this is the best value for money Android Smarty now available.
