The Nexus 5 might be the most leaked device of the year, but it’s finally real and available to the public. The follow-up to the Nexus 4 bumps up the specs almost across the board and has a feature set that bares a striking resemblance to the LG G2. That said, the Nexus 5 is still a very different device than the handset it was based on and may prove to be one of the best options in the Android handset lineup this year.
Outside of its impressive hardware, the Nexus 5 is also the first device to ship with Android 4.4 Kit Kat out of the box. The latest update to Android brings quite a few changes to the table, and the Nexus 5 is sure to have the latest and greatest updates to the OS for some time.
Solid hardware and new software aside, the Nexus 5’s starting price is $349 off contract, which may be the most enticing part of the entire handset. Should the Nexus 5 be your next smartphone? Read on to find out!
