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
•    Runs on Android 4.4 KitKat
•    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 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 runs on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and will always be the first to get the latest updates including Android 5.0 Lollipop, while users of other Androids may have to wait months for the latest software to arrive.

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: £299.99 (Same price at time of review)
