One of these devices is a unibody aluminum flagship launched almost a year ago, a hardware showboat built to bring unique audio and optical features to the Android world. The other is a minimalistic slab of “hardcore plastic” with the specs of a superphone but the price of a budget model, its entire purpose to showcase the very best of Google’s handheld products and services.

So why are these devices, so far apart in time and targeting, being brought together for this comparison? Because each is top-tier, in its own way – and each is also sold in the Google Play Store.

Dive in, then, to Nexus 5 vs HTC One, our attempt to answer the question of whether BoomSound and beastly build quality is worth the extra Benjamins a branded flagship will run you, compared to Google’s newest Nexus. Then swing on by our Nexus 5 vs Moto X comparison on your way to the latest Pocketnow Weekly podcast, where we spend most of the episode talking Nexus 5 with Brad Molen of Engadget.
