Review: Impressive value and performance

 


Conclusion

 

This is without a doubt one of the best phones on the market in terms of value for money. With a €349 ($349 US) to €399 ($399 US) price depending on the region, it is a very attractive package at a fair price.

Pitted against the LG G2, HTC One, Galaxy S4 it competes really well, and even scores slightly higher than some of these top 2013 phones, yet it costs less in most markets. If you don’t like bloatware and you prefer speed and fresh software versions including Android 4.4 there is really no other choice, this is the phone for you.

Battery life is decent, the performance is excellent and the soft plastic finish feels good in your hand. The camera does a fair job, but we've seen better ones on some flagship phones. However, they are not in the same price range.

The build quality is great, better than the Nexus 4 and like we said it reminds us of the HTC One X of yesteryear. You cannot swap out the battery and there is no microSD, but this is something you expect from Google Nexus devices. Even at maximum brightness the screen was a bit darker than on the Galaxy S4 and LG G2 but nothing that you should worry you. Have in mind that Nexus 5 is significantly cheaper than the competition and still has a 5-inch 1080p screen and a few other things going for it.

We can recommend it to people who like regular software updates, the look and feel of stock Android and most of all people who know good deal when they see one. Like the Nexus 4, the Nexus 5 delivers flagship performance on a mid-range budget and we have no second thoughts about recommending it.
