The Google Nexus 5 has been one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year, though this year, for different reasons. Last year it was about making Android good and affordable, but this year everything has been taken from good to great. This device reminds us of the old Nexus One, which disrupted the Android ecosystem by pushing OEMs to raise the bar in their hardware specifications. Many don’t remember this, but the spec-race actually began with this phone so many years ago.
Today the Nexus 5 is a reality, and it’s everything that most of us have wanted it to be. It’s got the best specifications of the year, and it also has the latest and greets version of Android. Still, nothing in life is perfect, and definitely not smartphones. Some of us are still torn about its design, or some of the things that surround the launch of this phone. If you’re still torn about getting one or not, make sure you watch our editorial video about the Google Nexus 5, the things we love and hate about it, and hopefully this will help you make an informed decision. If you already have purchased it, make sure you share your experiences in the comments.
Also, if you weren’t able to order one on time, don’t worry, we’ve got your back. We’re giving a Nexus 5 away next week, so make sure you follow the procedures to participate.
