Nexus 5


Google’s most anticipated device of the year, the Nexus 5 has finally arrived in the Play Store ending days (and months) of speculations, leaks and rumors. The Nexus 5 does manage to live up to its much anticipated hype and the one department where it tends to stand out from the rest is most certainly its camera that comes bundled with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) a feature that is currently missing in any of the other high end devices available in the market; so credit should be given to LG (Google have decided to stick with them after the success of the Nexus 4) for making it available for the Nexus 5.

The Nexus 5 is now available in the Play Store in two variants, 16GB and 32GB and priced at $349 and $399 respectively. The smartphone comes in two colors Black and White, though only the back of the device color changes from the front it is Black only. As far as carriers are concerned, we have come across Sprint and T-Mobile who are currently the only two official carriers for the device. Sprint is said to launch the device on November 8th with the 16GB version available for $150 and the 32GB for $200. T-Mobile on the other hand haven’t confirmed a release date as yet but it is expected that the device would be launching soon (hopefully before Christmas).

When it comes to hardware and features, the Nexus 5 thoroughly deserves to be in-line with the other higher end devices currently available in the market is the only device (for now) to be running on Google’s latest Android 4.4, KitKat. Anyone of you interested in placing an order anytime soon ? For those who have already got their hands on the device may feel free to share in their experience with us. Cheers !
