Colour Name:Black
Had one of these for a month now so thought I'd write a review on the good/bad points and compare it to my wife's Galaxy S4.

Good Points:

Phone Design and Feel - it's very simple with a nice matt rubberised back and feels great to hold. Saying that I have put a Ringke Slim case on it which has the same finish just to give it some protection. For me much nicer than the S4 which is very plastic feeling.

Screen - this is just about perfect for me. It's very sharp and crucially not too bright even on the highest brightness setting. To me better than the S4 although both are very nice but the Nexus 5 screen colours feel more natural to me.

Performance - phones are so powerfull these days that everything is really smooth and fast. As the Nexus has stock Android it just whizzes through everything. To be fair my wifes S4 does the same. Nothing more to say on this really.

Stock Kitkit as standard - this is a big plus in my opinion. It's amazing how quickly I got used to it and going back to the S4 with it's older version is really frustrating now. I find Kitkat simpler to use and understand. Not having masses of pre-installed bloatware is good too.

Value - I got mine on contract which was £10 a month cheaper than an S4 on the same tariff. Fantastic value.

Okay Points:

Camera - I don't use it much but it's definitely not as good as the S4. Perfectly adequate for occasional use though.

No SD card expansion - again for me not an issue but a nice to have.

Reception - not great sometimes. It seems to drop to no bars and won't come back without a restart. It's a known bug so hoping it will be sorted out with an update.

Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
The Google Nexus 5 is the latest, fastest Android phone from Google (built by LG). Incredibly fast, light and thin - but is it as good as the iPhone 5s costing more than double the price? Read on to find out.....

Firstly, a word of warning. This is a lengthy, thorough and in depth review to compare the two phones - not just trash one or the other. I personally have an iPhone 4S, iPad Air, an Apple TV and several Macs. However, I also have an open mind and limited budget.

The Nexus has a stunning 5 inch HD screen with more pixels on a larger screen, and they're more densely packed. For the techies among us, the Nexus is 1080x1920 pixels and 445 pixels per inch (ppi). This clearly beats the iPhone's 4 inch retina screen at 1136x640 pixels at 336ppi.

But what does this really mean? It means you get a bigger, better quality screen than an iPhone 5s (which as a fan of Apple, really surprises me). What it means, is photos and videos just look absolutely stunning, and web pages razor sharp.

In short, screen quality on the Nexus is absolutely brilliant, with pure whites and super-sharp text on a larger screen. A clear winner for the Nexus.

Both Nexus and iPhones are blistering fast. Web pages display instantly, scrolling a breeze, and you can rapidly jump between apps. So not a lot in it. This is an incredibly fast device for the money.

It's also worth noting both Nexus and iPhone support the super-fast 4G network as well as existing 3G. You may pay more for a 4G contract (although not from Tesco Mobile or Three), but if you want to get the best out of your phone it's a consideration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Generally outstanding 13 Dec 2013
Colour Name:Black
I've owned Android phones by HTC, Sony and even dabbled with a Samsung imitation Star product briefly before finally accepting that if you want something that's half decent you need to run with something like the Nexus 5 - in the sense that you have Google's financial firepower and innovation to produce an amazing phone for half the price you'd pay for an Apple iPhone 5.

With regard to style and ergonomics - prior to purchasing it, from looking at the images online I thought the styling was a little bland and average, but I was attracted by the performance that the early reviews spoke of. Now I've bought it I think that its is very well crafted. It is the right size between a large screen but not too big in the pocket, helped by the fact that the bevel around the screen is very slim. It feels very solid and well-made. I didn't want to spend a fortune on the official cases that Google sell for this - I would recommend the Orzly® - Multi-Function Wallet Case for LG NEXUS 5 - BLACK Leather Effect Wallet Style Phone Case with Intergrated Stand and Built-In Auto Sleep / Wake Sensor Functionality designed exclusively for the GOOGLE NEXUS 5 SmartPhone ( 2013 Model ) - it looks fine and for £6 it is sensibly priced and will protect your new gadget better than one of the slimmer cases.

Performance-wise, it is quick, so much faster than any of the Android phones I've owned before as you'd expect given the absence of bloatware. This product seems to exude quality, and I'm really impressed after owning it for a few weeks. The only letdown is the inability to insert a micro SD card, so its worth thinking about buying the 32GB version.
