Google Nexus 5 Announced

The Google Nexus 5 is finally official, and it will be launched immediately on November the 1st in the UK. Most of the leaked details have been pretty accurate it and the specifications include:

  • 4.95-inch, full HD IPS display which has an impressive 445ppi pixel density
  •  2.26GHz quad-core processor  Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 processor
  • Adreno 330 GPU
  •  2GB of RAM
  • 4G/LTE
  • 8MP rear facing camera with 1.3MP upfront
  • 2300mAh battery, which is apparently good for 7 hours of talk time, 8.5 hours of Wi-Fi internet browsing and 7 hours of high speed 4G surfing.
  • NFC

It will come with either 16GB or 32GB of storage, and there is no MicroSD slot, and it will be available for £299(16GB) and £349(32GB).

Initial reports suggest the build quality is not up to the standard of the iPhone or HTC One, and that it is a bit plasticy. While the camera hasnt been tested yet there is some concern it wont be as good as some of the other premium models. However I think we can let Google off seeing as this phone is £200 cheaper than a premium model!
