Powered by Android 4.4 KitKat, you can get this little gem in either black or white and with either 16GB or 32GB of memory.
So, what do we get under the bonnet?
Sample images from the Nexus 5 here: http://goo.gl/KtlCGu
For starters, camera buffs will be thrilled with the new lens on the Nexus 5. Its advanced design means you get more light into the device for brighter night shots and sharper action shots. There’s a quality optical image stabilisation system as well, ideal for combating shake as you’re quickly firing off a few shots.
Apart from less blur and sharper shots. the Nexus 5 has a new HDR+ mode so you can rattle off a burst of photos which will be combined to give you the ace shot. As a daytime camera, the colours are glorious with well defined shadows and at night you get sharpness and less noise.
As a real bonus, the Nexus 5 has Photo Sphere so you can take shots over 360 degrees. Probably time to put the old DSLR in the cupboard!
To display your pictures to best advantage you get a superb 5in display with minimised glare and a wider viewing angle.
The phone itself has an elegant simple design and is one of the lightest on the market at just 130g. The width is only 8.59mm so it’s not going to take up much room in your pocket or bag.
The cutting edge 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor in the Nexus 5 is incredible for gaming, you’ll be the envy of your friends with the speed. Naturally, it’s not only super fast at gaming but also for doing web searches and moving between apps. The 4G/LTE and mega fast wifi will also be great if you use your smartphone for business as well as socially.
It’s great to see the Nexus 5 Android 4.4 Kitkat in operation. As we hoped, it’s fast but easy to use.
Google have pulled out all the stops with the Nexus 5 and the device shows off its power when you install some of the one million apps and games available from the Google Play Store. Loads of them are free and many can be bought for about a dollar, or 69p in the UK.
All our old favourites are included on the Nexus 5, from the useful Google Calendar, Gmail, Chrome, Drive and Google Keep. What you put into your smartphone calendar will transfer into your PC so when you’re out and about you have the same info you would if you were at home.
As for the Google Maps, which have been redesigned, what can we say? With the Nexus 5 you shouldn’t get lost, Turn it on and it will tell you where you are and how to get to where you want to be. ****
