The LG Nexus 5 is an Android smartphone promising to offer pure Android experience along with a host of attractive features.
At the heart of the device sits a Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset which comes with an Adreno 330 GPU and a Krait 400 quad-core processor having a clock speed of 2.3GHz. The chipset delivers good performance and can render most current games without any hassles. Multi-tasking on the smartphone is also just as effortless thanks to the stunning 2GB of on-board RAM. Internal storage on the device is only 16GB with no possibility for further expansion. The device unfortunately does not house a microSD card slot.
The device is powered by a non-removable Li-Po 2300 mAh battery which supports a talk time of about 17h. Moving on to connectivity, you can always afford to stay connected as the device includes 3G, EDGE, GPRS, Wi-Fi hotspot, microUSB 2.0 port, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, GPS and NFC.
The Nexus 5 has a True HD IPS+ 4.95-inch capacitive touch screen with Full HD (1080 x 1920 pixels) screen resolution which reflects a pixel density of ~445 PPI. Besides this, the screen also features Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. In terms of designing, the smartphone is 8.6 mm thin and weighs about 130 grams. The smartphone is available in three colour variants namely Black, White and Red.
The device has an 8 MP primary rear camera with auto-focus and LED flash which can be used to capture high quality images and Full HD videos. Simultaneously, the smartphone also hosts a 1.3 MP secondary front camera with which you can click self-portraits and videos. The front snapper can also be used to make video calls.
