Nexus 5 Review


Image

So I got my black Nexus 5 in Nov and it is super great:

Hand Feel  & Screen

So this is a soft touch  plastic phone that is surrounded by a 5 inch great looking 1080p LCD screen that is great to look at and use every day.

LTE & Battery Life

It’s my first phone with LTE and it is super fast when on LTE 24 down and 15 up on Telus.  Battery life is pretty good I average about 9 hours with 2 hour screen on time. Using LTE and WiFi and pretty heavy use of the phone doing things like web browsing, texting, phone calls, listening to podcasts as well as social updates and some game play.

Camera

I find the camera is pretty good it does take a bit of time to focus which is my main complaint with it. Also for the extra colour depth and just plain better picture make sure you are using the HDR+ mode. Plus make sure you upload your pictures to Google+ sense it will Auto Awesome the pictures and video.

KitKat

I love Android 4.4 with its Google Experience Launcher and all the other little tweaks and the Hangouts Messaging. But with that messaging app it does not combine Hangout messages and SMS in the same contact conversions which is annoying.

Price

Is really good off contract from Google play 16GB $349CDN and 32GB is $399CDN.

Overall

It is a great phone that gives you the standard Google experience and will get updates quickly from Google.

Well I have finally moved to an android  device specifically the Telus Samsung Galaxy S2. It is a great phone and I love it especially sense I am a large user of Googles services It’s a great system sense you can customize almost everything about it such as the contact apps, phone app, messaging app and more. I have changed the launcher to be Go Launcher EX instead of TouchWiz sense I like the way Go does things and looks. I also use GO’s products for the phone, contacts, and messaging. Also I changed the default brower to be Dolphin HD and the music app to be Doubletwist. Overall it is a great device for people who use Google’s services or want to customize things more.
