Search giant Google gave Android fans a Halloween treat when they formally announced the Nexus 5. The defice is the latest version of Google’s Nexus line of smartphone and follows the footsteps of the widely popular Nexus 4 released in 2012. Unlike the N 4 though, the 5 model is available not just from the Google PlayStore but also from several retailers. The new device is the slimmest and fastest Nexus phone ever made. The LG manufactured smartphone has two versions, one for North America and Europe and one for Asia. The Nexus 5 was launched alongside Google’s latest Android OS, Android 4.4 KitKat.
Google and LG fulfilled their promise that the Nexus 5 will be a better and more powerful version of its predecessor. Specifications of the new model include a full HD 5 inch edge to edge screen (making it the largest pure Google device to date) made from Gorilla Glass 3 and powered by a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and an impressive 3GB RAM. The N 5 boasts of a 1920 X 1080 pixel HD display (equivalent of a 444 pixel density), wireless charging capability, extended battery life (2300 mAh), expandable storage, LTE and NFC support, and an 8MP camera equipped with optical image stabilization sensor (OIS). Benchmarking performance tests of the smartphone shows that the device outperforms most Android phones currently on the market and even rivalling Apple’s iPhone 5s.
Google is known to focus on helping its users get immediate access to information and the N 5 is bringing just that to its users. Google “smarts” are deeply integrated into the new device. Nexus 5 users just need to swipe once from home screen to get Google Now. The smartphone users can put Google to work just by saying “OK Google” to launch voice search, send messages, get directions, or access the playlist. With Android OS 4.4 KitKat, the LG Nexus 5 has a slimmed down memory footprint. The product will no longer have unnecessary background services and reduced the memory consumption.
Alongside with Google support, the smartphone brings a possibility to enjoy perfect photos by day and night (with HDR+), 360͒ with Photo Sphere, Auto Backup and movie creation. And, of course, Google didn’t forget about gamers (check the video). Choose the color that fits to you: black or white - and, what's important, save money in your purse. The great performance provided by Nexus 5 is available at a very affordable price.
The Nexus 5 is a top of the line phone with a bargain price tag with prices starting at US $349 for the 16GB model and US $399 for the 32GB. PricePanda Singapore has deals on the LG smartphone from several trusted retailers in the country allowing you to find the best prices for the N 5.
