A majority of Android smartphone consumers complaint about the speed issues that come up due to the UI layer added by manufacturers. These UI layers are not always causing problems, but they do come in the way most of the time and eventually reduce speed and performance.

But with the Google Nexus 5, you do not have to worry about any UI layers at all! This is one of the very few smartphones in the market that provide you with the purest form of Android operating system. So get to experience the fast and powerful Android directly the way Google makes it.

Another very important advantage of the Google Nexus 5 is that the smartphone runs on Android 4.4 KitKat right out of the box. Android 4.4 KitKat is the latest version of Android and hence will keep Nexus 5 consumers ahead of the game for a long time.

Even though Android 4.4 KitKat will eventually be rolled out for other smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One, the experience you get on the Google Nexus 5 will always be different. Always remember that Google follows a principle similar to Apple. The company has carefully designed and developed the new flagship smartphone as well as the new operating system. They are literally made for each other!

Since the Google Nexus 5 is directly sold by Google, you will never have any kind of problems and delays with respect to security and firmware updates. Whenever Google rolls out an important update, or to make things more interesting, when Google rolls out Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, the Google Nexus 5 will be one of the very few Android smartphones to get this update.

Hence no matter how big or small the update, you will be the first one to get it. And you don’t even have to wait for any kind of approval or modifications from your service provider or handset manufacturer, which usually causes the delay.

The Google Nexus 5 is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, the fastest mobile processing system available in the market today. We know that the Nexus 5 is not the only smartphone that has the Snapdragon 800 chipset, but there are some points that make a difference!

For instance, Google always tweaks its smartphones and optimizes everything that is possible. Hence the Nexus 5 will be able to outperform its competitors even though they all have the exact same chipset. Let us also not forget that there are no added UI layers, the Nexus 5 runs on pure Android 4.4 KitKat. This fact will also add quite a boost to the speed and performance.

The Google Nexus 5 uses one of the best display technologies available today. The beautiful 4.95-inch True HD IPS Plus capacitive touchscreen display will provide you with the best experience you have ever had. The display has a full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels at a pixel density of 445 ppi and supports 16M colors.

There are a lot of other smartphones out there that have excellent displays. Many consumers should be in love with the Super AMOLED display technology used specially by Samsung. But True HD IPS Plus performs even better than that, plus it performs way better in sunlight.

You might be surprised that the Google Nexus 5 actually has an 8MP primary camera! So it is the same camera that was present on the Google Nexus 4? Will it even be able to compete against the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the HTC One? Well, we have all the answers for you right here.

Google has paid a lot of attention to the primary camera on the Google Nexus 5 and the features it provides. The camera is equipped with some of the best technologies available and Google ensures that the performance will be up to the mark. Optical Inage Stabilization will allow you to take perfect photos and we are sure that you are going to enjoy your photography time.


Nexus 5 prices
Last but not the least, the Google Nexus 7 has been priced way better than every other competitor smartphone in the market. The 16GB version is available for $349 whereas the 32GB version has been priced at $399. The Nexus 5 does not have support for expandable storage, so be sure to get the 32GB version if you don’t mind spending that extra $50.

So for $399, you get one of the most power packed Android smartphone from the makers of the operating system itself! If you compare this price with the price of any other high-end smartphone in the market, you will still see that there is a considerable difference.
