Google Nexus 5

Originally reviewed by 04 November 2013

Best Google Experience Phone

Key features:

•    5-inch Full HD 1080p screen
•    8-megapixel camera with decent low-light camera performance
•    Powerful enough to run apps smoothly

The Nexus 6 is not exactly in the same price bracket, so the Nexus 5 still has the qualities to make it a phone worth considering for the pure Android feel.

At £299.99 or less if you shop around, it’s cheaper SIM-free than all the other Android big hitters like the HTC One M8 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. It’s an excellent performer overall, has a smart design and is undoubtedly still one of the best Android phones you can buy, even if it is getting a little old now.

Designed by LG, the Nexus 5 is just 8.6mm thick and has a super-slim bezel making it far from a chunky affair. The screen is exceptionally sharp and viewing angles are perfect making it primed for movie-watching.

It will give you around a day’s battery life, which isn't quite up there with the best, and the camera doesn't quite compete either, but it still has everything to make it a high-end Android phone bargain.

Price: £265 (£299.99 at time of review)
