It caught everyone's fancy from the time it was first leaked in a video, and since then, all Android enthusiasts, and especially the ones who swear by the pure stock user interface of the operating system, have been eyeing this smartphone. No prizes for guessing, we're talking about the Nexus 5, Google's new platform showcase device which has been manufactured by Korean electronics giant, LG. It's also the first time that Google has launched its flagship device in the Indian market just weeks after its international launch. The pricing of the phone and the promise of priority software updates makes it an irresistible proposition. So, how does it perform in real world conditions? We put it to test and find out in our review.

  • the good and bad
    Shrey Gautam (May 1, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    This phone is good in performance and display but weak in camera and battery backup. The battery feature should have been improved before release.

    Moises Nomada (Aug 18, 2017) on Gadgets 360
    Yes it does support USB OTG. I know this because I use it to control the pointer or do file transfers.

  • Great phone at an exceptional price.
    Abcd Sdf (May 6, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    First of all ,I will list down the pros of nexus 5. 1. Pure unadulterated android version,although somewhat you feel like its more of Google. 2.Exceptionally fast processor and bright full hd display. 3.First one to receive latest android updates. 4.Last but not the least,Best value for money phone available in the market in this range. The cons- 1.Average battery life. 2.No slot for external memory card, although you can get the 32 GB version also. 3.Not great camera. All I can say is,if you are ok with its battery life and camera,then just buy this phone,I guarantee you will not regret it.

  • Very dissapointed with Google
    G Morris (Mar 16, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    I bought 3 brand new Nexus 5 from google. 1 1/2 years later two are still working but have had an issue with one from the start. 6 months after buying the phone would not start up. I contacted Google and they said send it back. I did and received a refurbished phone back. Six months after that the phone would try to start up and but never start. Talked to Google on phone, did what they said and it still would not start. Sent it back like they said, this time they said PowerFreeze issue and wanted me to pay $189. They said their technical department said physical damage to phone. Phone was in exact shape when rec'd, perfect condition. Also PowerFreeze is a common complaint for this phone. Will never do business with Google again as long as I live.
