Nexus 5 white

An interesting master piece built by LG in collaboration with Google, a 5 inch smartphone that not only pleases the eye in terms of design, but also stands out when it comes to power under the hood.



The IPS LCD display incorporated in the Nexus 5 by LG has proven to be a smart move, and shows, with its ultra crystal clear display. The smartphone has a pixel density of 445ppi (pixels per inch) which is fabulous.  To be precise it is a 4.95 inch display which is capable of displaying 1920 x 1080 HD images as well as videos.



This device has two variants in terms of memory as well as color. You have the 16 and 32 GB versions which are available in both Black as well as white. A super fast 2.3 GHz quad core processor accompanied by 2 GB of RAM to help this device stand as a liable competitor to the upcoming smartphones.

2300 mAh Battery of this LG Google Nexus 5 makes it look just like the other smartphone in terms of battery life, lacking a certain unique factor, not resolving the complaints faced by the end users.



CMOS sensor on the back of the 8 mega pixel camera of this device helps generate clear images. Thanks to the optical image stabilization feature, even when you on the move literally on the move you can rely on the camera to take a clear one. At 30 fps 1080p HDR videos can be taken.

1.3 mega pixel front camera is not that bad in performance. Even in low lighting conditions the rear camera has a powerful flash to help you capture the moment.


Additional Features

Bluetooth 4.0 , Wi-Fi are some of the basic features included. It also has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 helps makes this device sturdy.  And being 8.59 mm thick you can definitely grip the Nexus 5 with ease. Built in wireless charging feature to help you live the future.



The best all round performance shown by any device considering the price range it falls, this seems to be the best buy. Sony’s Xperia ZL and Samsung’s S4 mini and the HTC’s Blinkfeed 600 are the devices that fall in the same price range but stand no chance to compete with the LG’s Google Nexus 5. But if you are looking for a waterproof smartphone Sony’s Xperia ZR is a good option for the price range.
