Nexus 5 review in pictures

  1. 1. Google Nexus 5 Review in pictures
  2. 2. Nexus raised to power 5 • Massive upgrade as compared to the Nexus 4 • Supports Qi wireless charging • Notification LED below the screen • Barometer, step detector and step counter sensors built in
  3. 3. Sturdy, but plain Jane • The plastic body feels light yet sturdy • But thanks to its subdued design, don’t expect second looks • The rear has more flair than the fascia due to the large camera lens and Nexus branding
  4. 4. Screen goddess • The full HD 4.95-inch screen offers a pixel density of 445 ppi • Great viewing angles and good sunlight legibility • Not as overly saturated as Super AMOLED displays. • Very crisp and produces natural colours
  5. 5. Shooter does its job • The 4.4.2 update brought speed and autofocus fixes to the 8MP shooter • Unintuitive camera UI and basic features. Includes HDR+ mode • Takes good pics in good light, but pales in comparison to the LG G2 and the Galaxy S4
  6. 6. Sweet taste of KitKat… • The very latest version of Android • Google Experience Launcher, with fixed Google Now homescreen on the left • Hangouts app is the default (and only) SMS app • Redesigned phone app that prioritises frequently-dialed contacts, and integrates Google’s business search
  7. 7. …with Nexus 5 specific features • Say ‘OK Google’ while on the homescreen to activate voice-based search and other commands • Use apps like Moves or Runtastic Pedometer to track steps and activity
  8. 8. Snaps at dragons, goes like a bat out of hell • No jitters while multitasking or playing heavy games • Tears through apps and games
  9. 9. Great call quality, but quiet speakerphone • Call quality through the earpiece is loud and clear • But the speaker at the bottom feels muted
  10. 10. Battery life isn’t so sweet • Sealed 2,300mAh battery keeps the Nexus 5 alive for a full workday with light to medium usage • May need a top-up charge during the day if your usage is heavy
  11. 11. At a glance • 4.95-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 screen • 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera • 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor • Adreno 330 GPU • 2GB RAM, 16/32GB internal storage • 2,300mAh battery • Dual-band 802.11 ac Wi-Fi, LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, DLNA
  12. 12. Pros and cons + • • • • • • Great screen Fast performance Light yet sturdy Latest Android updates Great value for money Very good call quality • Plain Jane looks • Non-expandable storage • Quiet speakerphone
  13. 13. Pricing and verdict 16GB: Rs 28,999 32GB: Rs 32,999 “The Nexus series of devices from Google have always redefined VFM, and the Nexus 5 only strengthens that position. It has its share of foibles, but packs in enough to scare rivals and shake things up in the entire mid-range right up to the premium segment.”
