Google Nexus 5: Top Smartphone With Large Eavesdroppers

The nexus 5 has top-class amenities at a bargain price. A property will appeal to some users but less.

The facilities and the appearance of the new LG Google nexus 5 was the probably the worst kept secret of the recent history of the Smartphonemarkt. Also Google itself was not that innocent, so by putting the appliance “accidentally” temporarily with image in the play store, in the hotel’s own promotional video for the inauguration of the statue of KitKat looking staff, made coincidentally photos and videos with the new nexus.

Since yesterday evening, this is now officially nexus. Indeed, it has again managed Google to combine a real high-end facilities with the latest version of the operating system and a really affordable price. This mix has been at the LG Google nexus 4 folded, and like its predecessor, is also sold out nexus 5 the cheapest 16 GB version again shortly after the start.

Knackscharf and rapidly

The nexus 4 was built after the model of the LG Optimus G , so the nexus of 5 on the LG G2 aligns itself. No wonder that nexus 5 is made by LG . So does also the IPS display of the new nexus in FullHD (1,920 x 1. 080p) on, given the smaller size compared to the G2 (5.2 “) leads to a higher pixel density of rich 445 ppi. Individual pixels are so impossible to detect with the naked eye. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla glass 3.

Working under the hood a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon S800-Quad-Coreprocessor, which pulses with 2.26 GHz per core. Thanks to the Adreno 330 GPU you can play graphics-intensive games easily. Support the processor receives a 2 GB large memory. The internal memory is either 16 or 32 GB. A memory expansion via MicroSD is not possible.

KitKat 4.4 is listening

Heart of the nexus 5 and with a reason for the quick sell-out is certainly the latest Google Androidversion called 4.4 KitKat. This comes with numerous improvements including a redesigned with new icons in the status bar, a new full-screen mode, the arrangement of contacts by frequency of the calls, better multitasking, Emoji for emails, and and and. Also has a deeper integration of Google now 4.4 KitKat, “Ok Google” you like to speak to at any time the Smartphone X at the Moto.

This innovation will not taste but some users. Particularly as a result of eavesdropping scandals it has become in this country very wary and skeptical, and now Google is launching a Smartphone nexus 5, whose Mikrofon is constantly automatically provided for this feature. The eavesdroppers are so great, we’ll wait if it keeps some customers from buying. That the Smartphone was again sold out, however, however, speaks.

Ceramic knobs

Externally, the Smartphone has gotten a total renewal. It was nexus 4 still made of glass, so is now on a rubbery plastic back, the volume rocker and the power button are made of ceramics. 8.59 mm, the device is pretty slim, weight 130 gram goes for the size in order.

My only criticism: the bottom frame might have quite a little smaller, or you would have to use the space for speaker à la HTC One .

Real HDR photos

Even the 8-megapixelcameradeserves a special mention. It is equipped not only with Flash, auto-focus and full HD video capability, but also with an optical image stabilizer, which you can use to avoid blurred photos. The snapping is the first in a Smartphone, that shoots real HDR images: so multiple differently exposed photos are shot and superimposed.

The camera is well suited for low-light environments. “Awesome car” used to create animations, photo booths photos etc. from the image gallery. A 1.3 MP front-facing camera is also on board.

No G2 rechargeable battery

The 2,300 mAh battery allows 7 h (LTE) or 8, 5 h (Wi-Fi) Internet use, according to Google, 17 hours of talk time and 300 hours of standby time. Because it lags a little the G2 and its 3,000 mAh electricity behind, which makes about 10 h in the 3 G and 20 h in the 2G-Modus talk time and 826 or 821 standby hour.

Finally, the nexus 5 with GPS, dual-band Wlan (2.4 & 5 G) is equipped 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, LTE, MicroUSB and dual microphones. Play store costs the Smartphone €349 (16 GB) or € 399 (32 GB), this one has the choice between a white and black version.

Conclusion: Hardly a coming over for Android fans

No question, with the nexus 5 sends Google again a Smartphone in the race, which must not fear comparison with the current elite Samsung Galaxy S4, LG G2 and Sony Xperia Z1 HTC one, and that for almost half of the money.

Only the somewhat weak-breasted battery, the constantly switched on micro and the slightly overblown display frame to spoil something the big picture. However, there is no way at the nexus of 5 passes for users who are looking for a top Smartphone with the latest Android for little money.
