Lo and behold, the Nexus 5 is here! Priced $349.99 and $399.99 for 16/32GB variants!


Google finally took wraps off of the Nexus 5, a device which suffered numerous leaks right from inception to the final launch.

As speculated, the Nexus 5 is indeed manufactured by LG. The design too doesn’t come as a surprise; we’ve all seen the sleek candy bar design in the aforementioned leaks. The list of spot-on guesses/leaks goes on and on, with even the price being a match!

Without further ado, let’s skip to what matters the most; the specifications. The device will come with a 445ppi 4.95 inch 1080p screen covered in Corning Gorilla Glass 3, 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB ROM, NFC, 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth v4.0 and GPS. The Nexus 5 will have an 8 mega-pixel main shooter at the rear and a 1.3 mega-pixel one at the front, and will be powered by a 2,300mAh battery featuring wireless charging. The phone will come in 2 colors – Black and White (panda).

As usual, the Nexus 5 will introduce another flavor of Android in v4.4 KitKat. Who’s buying?

    Good. I was little disappointed with camera and battery. But i liked NFC, LTE and Wireless Charging.

    If the camera were better i would buy this phone.

      Why are you disappointed with camera and where did you see any examples of photo? Did you just see “8mp” and think that it’s crap? Then, I really feel sorry for you.

      Why are you disappointed?
      nexu 5 have 8 mega pixel camera as same as nexus 4 but in nexus 5 camera has optical image stabilization to reduce blur (optical s are automatically adjusted to reduce blur) .

    I will now cancel my order of Mi3 and buy this. Nexus has LTE and I dont have to wait that long.
    8MP Camera is enough for me and I wont have any headache regarding warranty.

    I would soooo buy this, if it had dual sim. Need it for work (bring your own device policy).
    Rest of the specs is perfect!

    I caved in and bought one today. Really, really great phone so fast and smooth its such a difference coming from the clunky MTK6589. Screen look amazing, very light, games are smoothest I’ve seen on a device, great breathing notification light, great OS, signal is way way better than I was getting on my 6589. All that plus the devs will get going soon and we’ll have Roms and kernels. Such a great device.

    I got from Carphonewarehouse for £295 rather than spending £309(including delivery). Phone seems to be fine, it is not great but good for the price.

    I wanted a Xiaomi Mi3 but it’s too difficult to get in the UK so I’m going to get this.
