The Nexus 5 from Google appeared to be one of the best smartphones in its segment. Nexus 5 is also the successor of Google Nexus 4 which is also made by LG. The huge success of Nexus 5 in the market was due to the amazing features it offered that too in a very competitive price. The Nexus was released having a very powerful 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset and with 2GB RAM. It also featured with the latest version of Android i.e., 4.4 KitKat.
The Google Nexus 5 has made a remarkable improvement as per the design standards than its predecessor Nexus 4; it comes with a bigger screen at 4.95 inches, which is slightly bigger than that of Nexus 4. The biggest improvement can be seen in terms of quality of display, which is now 1080×1920 pixels compared to 768×1280 pixels in Nexus 4, also the pixel per inch is 445 in Nexus 5 as compared to Nexus 4 thus giving it a very crisp display. Even though the quality has improved a lot, but the display is slightly less vibrant than that of the Apple iPhone 5S as iPhone tends to display much vibrant color.
The phone is moderately handy as its dimension are 5.43 x 2.72 x 0.34 inches and so would not cause much problem if you try using it with just one hand. The phone is really light weight having weight as 130 grams, as this time LG had decided to use fiber for the front and back rather than glass as in Nexus 4. The Google Nexus 5 is available in 3 variants Black, White and Red.
The Google Nexus 5 features, 5-inch 1080p IPS display that gives 1920×1080 pixels, thus giving a noticeable display. The pixels are so clear that you can easily see the difference between the display of Nexus 5 and Nexus 4 by comparing the same image on both the phones keeping them side by side. The display of Nexus 5 is really good and is protected with corning gorilla glass 3 making it have a scratch resistant surface, but if one would observe very closely they would find that the colors of Google Nexus 5 are less saturated than other smartphones like HTC One or Apple but it really is very insignificant compared to the amazing price you get to have it.
The Google Nexus 5 comes in 16GB and 32GB models, while Nexus 4 came in only 8GB and 16GB models. While the thing to note here is that the internal memory cannot be increased as it has no option to expand the memory and also does not have any SD Card slot.
The Google Nexus 5 comes with a very powerful quad processor having 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset. It also has 2GB RAM, thus making this phone a rock star amongst its competitors in its price range. While Nexus 4 had 1.5GHz quad-core processor having a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro the new Nexus 5 has managed to raise its bar significantly. The Nexus 5 has a really powerful processor, thus making the phone with zero lag is highly unlikely to disappoint anyone with its performance related issues as the functioning itself is very smooth.

Even though the primary sensor is the similar to that of Google Nexus 4, as they both have the front and rear cameras with 8-megapixels and 1.3-megapixels, respectively. But the major difference is that the Nexus 5 now comes with an optical image stabilization technology. The Nexus 5 camera now features Photo Sphere using which you can take 360-degree shots thus giving you the ability to capture everything around you, using the HDR+ mode will let you take burst shots after that it would automatically choose the most suitable picture for you, and the amazing Auto Awesome feature that improves your photos in the library and lets you share it.
Battery Backup Life:

The battery seems to be the weakness for this amazing phone as you need to plug it as much as two times a day if you use it effectively.
The Google Nexus 5 is really fast and has no lag which is possible due to its 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor. The Photosphere feature serves as an amazing aspect in the camera section and with the image stabilization feature this phone works wonders.
