LG Google Nexus 5 Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of LG Google Nexus 5 at a Glance:-

Its fifth Smartphone in Nexus Family loaded with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800- 2.26 GHz quad-core processor, 8 MP 1/3.2-inch CMOS sensor with Image stabilization and 2 GB RAM.  The phone body is made up of plastic having soft touch hazy smooth finishing with slight curved edges. Phone looks classical and stylish but doesn’t have unique design. The display (1920x1080 pixels) with 445 ppi is generating clear sharp graphics and images. The 1.3-megapixel front is sound enough and supports 720p videos. The speaker is down side of handset, sound quality is not so impressive as if you want to loud music. The 2.26 GHz quad-core processor is does not lag in running high graphical games and applications, so can say it’s good for app lovers. The battery is just below average but who care if you have now option of buying power bank in low price.

            This handset doesn't have any major issue that someone swings his mood to cancel it from buying. But it is not recommended for the three kinds of people first who wish to have a long battery life, second the  people wants to capture professional high quality photographs from the phone and in third category those people  having habit of listening songs loudly in their phone because speaker is not loud.
