Last week Google unveiled their 5th generation Nexus smartphone to the world. Were you paying attention? If you missed the whole event, don’t fear this device rocks and is here to stay. Here’s everything that we at OSPS think makes the LG Nexus 5 great.
If you have a love for all things Google, the LG Nexus 5 gives you Android software in its purest form. No interference from the manufacturers installing bloat ware you’ll never use. Just streamline, super-efficient Android software. The way it should be.
The great thing about the Nexus 5 being a pure Android smartphone is that, you’ll get future software updates way before the other premium smartphones. You little Android VIP!
Android 4.4 KitKat
Currently the latest version of Android is named after our four-fingered (or alternatively Chunky) snack favourite. Will it melt in your hands? Fortunately not! Android 4.4 is the smoothest user experience to date, meaning a responsive user experience that won’t let you down as you multi-task to the max on the quad core processor.
Get a 5 inch Full HD display, that’s great for watching movies. Despite the bump in screen size from last year’s Nexus 4, The 5 is very similar in external size thanks to its trimmed down bezel around the edges. The processor inside is a zippy 2.2GHz quad core processor, buffing up to the same might as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 within a much smaller frame.
If you ever wanted to capture your world in a bubble, the Photo Sphere camera options takes 360 degree panoramic shots in every direction. Great for capturing those breath taking views or a big family get together at Christmas. Just point and the Nexus stitches together multiple photo graphs into one crisp sphere.
Google say the Nexus 5 is made for what matters. With strong hardware and a great looking design, we couldn’t agree more.
