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.

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.

This phone, in my opinion, is the best phone i've ever owned.

I work for a college, and have dealt with iphones, andriod, blackberry and windows phones, my previous phone was a HTC one x.

The phone is very fast, i've not had a moment when i've thought it's not worked at lightning speed. The andriod 4.4 kit kat that comes with it is also brilliant, very smooth, fast and fluent, plus uses less RAM and is less resource heavy, which of course is a plus.

the styling of the phone looks superb, it's great to hold and just the right size for me to use with one hand, but also to be happy to use with two hands.

Before I got the phone I read some reviews about battery life, the battery *could* be improved, but it's more than enough to last a whole day and be charged overnight. I've used the phone from 8 in the morning until 11 pm, with the battery dropping down to 40%. During that day, i used the phone as a satnav (for 15 minutes), done some texting, browsed the internet and send a few picture messages - standard everyday use.

For the price you pay, this phone is an unbelievably good deal. I would recommend it to anyone.

so good i got my hardcore apple fanboy family to switch over to android.

only downside is the battery, i can make it work through an entire day but only with 15 percent left.
also the space, 16 gb is enough for me but i would have liked an sd slot.

Android KitKat is fast,smooth and a pleasure to use. There is everything you've come to enjoy about android phones here. I have had no issue with the battery draining,even with WiFi and data on and listening to music whilst using location settings on walks. It's used a lot of charge,don't get me wrong, but there's still plenty to be getting on with.

The keyboard and screen are very responsive,I can even type reviews like this very easily and with little frustration compared to other devices I've tried.

Of course,there is no flash player since adobe stopped supporting android,but this can be worked around by downloading free apps from the play store such a Puffin browser.

It takes a micro sim card so make sure you've got one before trying to set your phone up.

The only things that have annoyed me with this are the text messages being dealt with by Google hangouts and being unable to customise ringtones. I downloaded a free app for messaging and doubletwist app so I could choose my own ringtone a message notifications.

I actually bought the 32gb sim free version from the play store for £339...
