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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's great, get one you won't be disappointed :-) 25 April 2014

Clear screen, fantastic performance and let’s not forget the bottom line - half the price of the flagship HTC/Samsung/Apple phone!

£269/24 months = £11.21 per month, sim only from Tesco (1 month contract, 500Mb/500 minutes/5000 texts) £10.00 per month, so a total of £21.21 a month, compare that to a regular 24 month contract for a top end phone, bet you cannot match that price.

When researching getting a new phone the negative points that come up again and again for the Nexus 5 are:

Speaker - ok its adequate not brilliant but remember it’s a phone not a boom box.

Camera - seems really good to me, if you want to be a professional photographer buy yourself a regular camera, for a normal person the camera is great.

Battery – my previous phone was a HTC Sensation XE with an aftermarket upgraded battery (Anker), the Nexus being used the same over the last 2 weeks is lasting longer, even though it has a bigger screen and faster processor, lasts an average day for me with around 40% left, its better than I expected and gets a thumbs up from me.

Storage – this is the only negative point I really agree with, the lack on memory card slot is a disadvantage but if you think you can survive with 16Gb (I have 10.5Gb left to play with after installing all of my favourite apps) don’t be put off.


It's great, get one you won't be disappointed :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannot fault this phone 7 Feb 2014
Colour Name:Black
After searching for a couple of weeks for a replacement for my htc one x, I decided to get the black Nexus 5 and I am not disappointed at all with my decision. I read lots of reviews on the Nexus 5 and the one thing which stood out on those reviews were the poor battery life and poor camera. I can say from my experience the battery is average for a smart phone, but considering all of the extra features that come with android 4.4 I'd say this is good. I have the brightness on the screen set to about 20-25% as this is more than bright enough for me. I have wifi and gps turned on all the time and the battery lasts me a whole day, which is all I need as it gets charged overnight on my wireless charger.

The phone fits nicely in my hand and feels secure, the finish on the case is a smooth matte finish. It is not so smooth though that I find it slipping out of my grip. The power and volume buttons are located in good positions for use and they function well.

The phone was really easy to set up, there are instructions in the box explaining how to insert the micro sim card. When you power the phone on for the first time it runs through a setup where you connect to WiFi, add a google account, then it takes you through some of the features. The first thing I noticed after using the phone was how good the display was and also how fast/responsive it was. I would recommend enabling the ART caching over Delvik, which is a new feature enabled in the developer settings for android 4.4. This makes a massive difference on apps startup time and switching between apps.

After trying out the camera I can say it is a lot better than my camera which I had on my HTC one x. It is fast and has a good range of settings to optimize your pictures depending on lighting and location.
