Amazing phone with excellent performance and GPU
By Sundram Choudhary
It is an amazing and fast phone with latest android and officially from Google. This phone is especially built for android lovers and has the latest technology that can be with the fastest upgrade to any new higher version of android. General review: 1) Design: The colour of this phone gives an amazing feel. The girls who see my phone simply can resist to compliment and at least says wow. It's beautifully designed and makes your eyes pop out. 2) Handy: As the screen size is 4.95 inches which helps you easily hold in a single hand. The weight of this phone is around 130 grams which is actually light weight and this increases the handiness of the mobile. In short a light weight and compact to carry. 3) Screen size and Resolution: The screen size is 4.95 inches which is quite good as compared to majority of the smartphones available in the market and around the same range. If you watch movies or play games and like big screen phone then you don't have to worry about and this phone, it has got a great resolution. It has 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD) resolution which is almost 445 ppi( highest among this range of mobiles). This resolution is great. 4) Camera: It has a great 8MP camera, 3264 x 2448 pixels, autofocus, optical image stabilization, LED flash, Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, photo sphere, HDR, dual recording. The LED flash also helps in making the picture look amazing. The recording is great as it records at 1080p HD(30fps) with optical image stabilization. The 1.3MP camera also gives a nice quality and selfies comes out to be great. 5) Processor: It has Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 Quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 with 2GB of RAM. It has also got a GPU Adreno 330 for motion like gaming. These two papers make it run smoothly in almost 5 months of usage, it hasn't hanged even once. Overall, great running and great graphics. 6) Battery: The battery performance is very good. The battery charges fast. If you do multitasking like play games or watch movies and Wi-Fi is being used, it discharge in around 7-8 hours, otherwise it works decently. It has Li-Ion 2300 mAh battery. 7) Durability: The phone is very durable. It has Gorilla 3 glass which makes the scratch on screen comes hard. Moreover, the glass is strong as well as I have dropped many times but by God's grace nothing happened. 8) OS: the Android OS, v4.4-KitKat (upgradable to 4.4.4) latest version is great and is quite powerful and smooth than previous ones. One can update to the newer version of the Android OS for free. So, no problem with the operating system and the upgrade to any higher versions are always first available to Google phones, so upgrade will be available very fast compared to any other mobiles. 9) Memory: This phone has 16/32 GB internal memory and doesn't have an option of expandable memory. As majority of the apps are big and the pics clicked are being good in quality and bigger in size so your memory easily gets eaten. One frequently needs to clean up unwanted stuff. 10) Connectivity:It has 4G(DC-HSDPA, 42 MBps; HSDPA, 21 MBps; HSUPA, 5.76 MBps; LTE, Cat4, 50 MBps UL, 150 MBps DL). Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot,this is the latest Wi-Fi technology. Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, NFC and microUSB v2.0 (SlimPort), USB Host, USB On-the-go. Pros: Speed: Works smoothly, Size: Ideal for those who wants a 4.95" phone. Durable: Is strong and has a thick and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protecting it from normal fall and rough usage. Speaker: Has really got a nice loud and clear speakers in respect to other available phones. Great Core and die to for design. Great clarity in display because of the resolution it offers. Processor and its working is great, Fast charging get fully charged within 2-3 hours from nil. Amazing camera quality. Great feature of Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 Quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 and Adreno 330 makes big gaming apps and multitasking smooth. Good, user friendly operating system. Cons: Camera: 8MP is not enough to take good pictures and 1.3MP is also bad compared to many other mobiles and when you zoom the picture, the quality decreases. Expandable Memory: No expandable memory, they should provide this feature as this helps to keep lots of data in mobile itself and can carry anywhere. Conclusion I really love the phone because of its handiness, awesome feel and the technology it has in it. All the pros empowers its cons and if you want a phone for not as primary purpose as camera, I would recommend you to buy it.(read more)

The King at this price point..!
The nexus 5 is a very powerful and balanced phone at an amazing price point. Here's what I found out in my first month of use: Design: An awesome looking phone which feels sturdy and secured in the hand. It has thin bezels. Not the best looking phone but certainly not the worst too. It is elegant. Screen: 4.95 inch 1080p IPS display with a pixel density of 445 per inch. Unfortunately, the screen is prone to scratches and should be covered by a protector. It is easy to smudge and is a fingerprint magnet. OS: Recently, got an update to Android 4.4.4 Kitkat. The OS is latest and is super smooth. It will be one of the first phones to receive Android Lollipop. Performance: It has a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 Ghz. It also comes with 2GB of RAM which is a delight. The graphics is very nice. Everything runs smooth and is speedy. Camera: Where the phone disappoints is its camera. It says 8MP but the photos look grainy and looks as if they were clicked by a 5MP camera. The only time the pictures look nice is in bright daylight. Though it has many camera options like HDR, panorama etc. The front facing 1.3MP camera is quite average. Interface: Comes with Google experience launcher. I like the part that the phone has a search assistant at home screen and you just have to say "Ok Google" followed by the command you want to give. The interface is clean and nice with big icons. But, I feel the app drawer is way too simple. Although, this can be easily taken care of with a different launcher. Call Quality: It is nice. The phone catches signal easily and I hardly found a problem in this category. The sound is loud and clear. Battery: The 2300 mAh battery is quite under-whelming. For such a powerful phone the battery life is a little below average. Even on a little heavy use and some casual gaming, you would find yourself charging the phone before going to bed. Furthermore, the battery is non-removable. Others: There is no expandable memory. But there is a 32GB version of this phone as well. Stock Android from Google means that this phone receives Android upgrades in a jiffy and before the others. There are on screen buttons. Verdict: This phone is a beast and is very good. I am very happy with the phone although the camera and battery is a let down. I bought the 16GB version and I recommend this phone to anyone who wants an excellent phone. It is rightly said that " You can't beat the Nexus 5 at it's price point".(read more)

Google Nexus 5 - This is a beast !.
This is the best available phone in this price range . Pros: 1 Nice build quality. Phone looks damn cool. It's very sleek and slim. Easy to hold. Fits perfectly in your pocket. 2. Scratch proof Corning gorilla glass 3 with nice viewing angle. Full HD IPS+ (1920*1080) display which works without any lag. Color looks like original. A nice 4.95 inch (almost 5) display. This is the perfect size. Has a pixel density of 445 PPI so the display is just fab. One cannot expect better than this. 3. The camera is not on a lower side but it's definitely better than Iphone 4s. The camera works perfectly in good light conditions. Led flash is just awesome. HDR works very well. The best part is that it has Google Camera which gets updated time to time. I have updated my camera twice and now it is the best available camera in this price range . Camera gets better with every update. Front Cam is good. Video quality is awesome. Full HD recording. You can take photos while recording . 4. The hardware makes this phone the best . It has a 2.3GHz snapdragon processor which makes it the best phone in the market. Apps work super fast and there is no game available in store which is not supported by this device ;). 2GB RAM is just more than enough for any hardcore user like me! 5. The brand (GOOGLE) gives you a satisfaction that your phone is the best and it is the purest of the available Android devices. Any update will be exclusively available for nexus devices. (Especially OS updates) . 6. Gets instantly updated from 4.4.2 to 4.4.3. Kitkat is simply awesome. You get loads of features. (photo editor and many such things). It has a smart dialer. 7. Has features like Bluetooth , WiFi , Hotspot . NFC works very well . 4g works perfectly . 8. There are many hidden features ;). I am still exploring my phone. . . Just go for this phone guys .. I am sure you won't regret! If you want to use Pure Android .. Use this phone ! If it's Android, it must be Nexus.(read more)
