Best Nexus 5 Alternative

Key features:
  • 5.2-inch Full HD 1080p display
  • 13-megapixel main camera
  • Strong battery life
  • Rear physical buttons on the back
The smartphone with the buttons on the back, the LG G2 sees the South Korean company make an impressive return to smartphone prominence. The 5.2-inch G2 features a full HD IPS edge-to-edge display, a 13-megapixel OIS (optical image stabilization) camera and a speedy Snapdragon 800 quad-core CPU. 

Moving the buttons to the rear and reducing the screen bezel frees up the extra screen estate to make the most of HD movie watching. The camera is good, but doesn't deliver Sony Xperia Z1 or Nokia Lumia 1020-like images. The G2 delivers a strong overall package making it a great alternative to the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. It's now just £315 SIM-free, however, which makes it worth considering instead of the Nexus 5 on account of its superior battery life.

Price: £315 (£400 at time of review)
