There is a reason behind launching any new smartphone and the reason is to accommodate the users and cover up the missing features not present in previous devices. Google have two goals behind the launching of Nexus devices which is the sub-brand and they made with the collaboration of handset manufacturers one is to launch the better smartphone than the previous one and the other is to provide the live example of their updated Android software. In 2013, Google chose LG for their Nexus device. Here we are going to see what LG Nexus offer to the device.

Design and Display

The LG change the trend of Nexus device and stay out the glass usage from Nexus and made the handset body from polycarbonate with the matte finish. Though the design touch is not new and we already have the examples in Nexus 10 and Nexus 7. The Nexus 5 has the logo embossed at the back of a device. The device measures 137.9 x 69.2 x 8.6 mm in thickness and has 130 grams of weight which is 9 grams less than Nexus 4. The device has 4.95 inches screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution which is also better than Nexus 4 which only has 4.7 inches display with 1280 x 786 pixels resolution. The large screen and bright display gives clear outdoor visibility to the users and they feel ease while using the device even under bright light.

OS, Processor, and Memory

The device runs the latest Android KitKat operating system. Besides the large display and updated software, the Nexus 5 comes with superfine hardware combination. The device is featured with 2.26GHz quad-core processor paired with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and Adreno 330 GPU. The device offers 2 GB RAM and 16 or 32 GB internal memory which is quite enough for storing the data but, unfortunately, there is no microSD card. This is the big mishap with this device which restricted the users to carry their important data with them.

Camera

The camera takes the front position in the war of smartphones and every manufacturer is conscious about this and takes the wise step in the placement of this essential part. LG chose 8 MP rear camera with autofocus, optical image stabilization and LED flash. Though usage of these features is not new and at that time most of the Android Smartphones are featured with them for giving the impressive image quality to the users. The Nexus 5 has 1.3 MP front-facing camera for video calling.

Battery

There is no doubt that the device has the powerful 2300mAh battery which is large in size than Nexus 4 but the drawback is there and that is the power source in no removable and users need to replace the whole device if any mishandling happened with the battery. The power source is same as HTC ONE and gives 300 hours standby on 3G and 17 hours talk time on 3G network. For compensating the no removable aspect, the company provides wireless charging feature which is possible only with Qi charger and users don’t need to carry the wire for charging with them.

Good and Bad Aspects

Reasonable price, latest software, powerful processor, large display and wireless charging are the positive aspects and, on the other hand, the no removable battery and restricted LTE connectivity compatibility are the negative points of LG Nexus 5.
