Are you one of the consumers who bought the new Google Nexus 5? If you are, well, you are in luck because according to the latest news, this next generation mobile phone is now sold out from the Google Play Store. Yes, both of its storage configurations which include the 16 GB and 32 GB versions are also sold out. Apparently, the same thing also happened when the Nexus 4. The Nexus 5 predecessor was made available in the public one year ago and it also sold out after only a short period of time after its release.
For the individuals who did not follow this story, the Nexus 5 is the first Google handset incorporated with the new Android 4.4 KitKat mobile operating system. This means that as the device went out of the sale, so did the device’s software. Unless you are brave enough, you can install the operating system on your own mobile phone though third-party clients.
The Google Nexus 5 is an almost similar handset to the LG G2 since it is also LG that is Google’s counterpart in manufacturing this handset. In terms of the technicalities, the Nexus 5 showcases a 4.95-inch diagonal screen size which exhibits a 1080p quality and IPS technology. The central processing unit packs a 2.3 GHz clock speed while the RAM comes in a respectable 2 GB size. Of course, like we already mentioned, it is powered by the Android 4.4 Kitkat mobile OS. At the Google Play Store, the Nexus 5 has a $350 price and now we can see why it is so expensive. According to Forbes, it is a “solid phone” while TrustedReviews said that it is “aggressively priced”. However, does the price really matter? If the Nexus 5 is the exact mobile device that fits your lifestyle, then you should definitely buy it.
Unfortunately, consumers still have to wait until the Google Nexus 5 is available in the market again. It is important to know that Google’s stocks have now increased more than $1000 which means that the company should be fairly ready in making available new handsets of the Nexus 5.
Actually, even before Google unveiled the Nexus 5, a lot of people already know about what it is going to look like and what features it is going to pack. One week before the official launch date, leaks poured in the internet through news articles like rain. Courtesy of torrents, almost every single thing about the Google Nexus 5 was already publicized and known to interested consumers. The good thing is that Android developers were able to create a better security in protecting KitKat when they were still making it. The Google Now updates and fullscreen settings were not necessarily unknown to the public when it leaked online.
