Google, once again with LG, just released the latest of the Nexus smartphones, the Nexus 5. It is a 4.95 inches smartphone, with a 1920 x 1080p display at 444 ppi, the Qualcomm quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor running at 2.3 GHz and the Adreno 330 GPU. There is 2 GB of RAM, with either 16 GB or 32 GB storage and it supports the latest Android OS version, Android 4.4 KitKat. It supports LTE, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi, has a 8 MP back camera and a 1.3 MP front camera, the former with full HD capabilities.
As expected, the specs are top of the line, but the kicker is not the high end technology featured, but the price. The price is just below 300 quid for the SIM-free purchase, which is for all competing manufacturers painfully low. Phones with comparable specs, like the HTC One, for instance, cost about twice as much, the iPhone 5s even more. Thankfully you can order the phone also by Google store, whereby the demand is considerable. No wonder Apple and Microsoft spent billions in order to thwart any advances Google is currently making, if they ever get the Motorola brand up and running again, there is no saying what may happen.
