Now that the Google Nexus 5 is almost out and about, we had some hands-on time with the smartphone. We are starting a new segment on Android Junkies which will give clear cut points on why you should or shouldn’t get a new device. We have found other Android sites are lacking in clear instructions and give mixed reviews to a device, and we don’t want to read through a ton of articles just to know is a smartphone is good for us or not. What better device to kick off a new feature than the famed Google Nexus 5 eh? So Without further ado, we answer the question: Should you get the Nexus 5:
Why you should get the Nexus 5
- Price – The Nexus 5 is a great smartphone especially if you consider spending less and getting more. Priced around $350 it is one hell of a deal.
- Bare Android – The Nexus 5 comes with pure Android experience, so if you are fed up with third party freeware on your smartphone, this is the best phone to get.
- Android KitKat – The Nexus 5 will be the very first smartphone to come with the new version of Android called KitKat, so if you want the latest firmware, this is the smartphone for you.
- It’s a flagship – The Nexus 5 doesn’t cut any corners to reduce price! It comes with a 5 inch full HD 1080p screen and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor (2 GB RAM), so it Is as fast as any other top end smartphone.
Why you shouldn’t get the Nexus 5
- Camera – We know that the mega pixels never count but if you are looking for a beast of a smartphone camera, try anywhere else.
- Battery – The Nexus 5 comes with a 2300 mAh battery but if you are looking for a long battery time the Samsung Galaxy S4 has the bigger one.
- Storage – There is no microSD card slot on the Nexus 5 so if you are a movie buff like me, this is not the device for you. Yes 32 GB is little for me, what’s the point of a full HD phone when I can’t store full HD videos on it?
This concludes our “Should you get” segment feature Google’s Nexus 5 smartphone. Catch is later for more news on Nexus 5 and other ‘upcoming’ smartphones.
