Android currently powers the majority of the smart phones on the planet. Nearly every manufacturer has at least one device out there running some version of Android. Enter Google’s special line of ‘pure’ Android devices, the Nexus line. These devices have been on the market for a couple of years, but last year’s Nexus 5 quietly released, but no without receiving rave reviews.
Many notable tech sites have stated that it is the Android phone to have. First off it is incredibly fast running off the robust Snapdragon 800 2,26 GHZ processor. It can handle any app, and it is a gaming beast. The 5 comes from the size of the display, which is an incredibly sharp 1920×1080 resolution. It is thin, and has a sleek, attractive look.
One of the biggest attractions about the Nexus 5 is that it is offered through Google directly. This means you can have this device for a relatively inexpensive cost ($349 for 16 GB, and $399 for the 32 GB) and enjoy the luxury of being off contract with a service provider. When it was released it came out in standard black and white, but earlier this year they released a special edition red model.
The the Nexus 5 you get very hi-end components, but you also get a trimmed down Android experience, free of a lot of bloatware which is par for the course these days when purchasing manufacturer’s phones. Companies like Samsung and HTC are notorious for installing a lot of their proprietary apps, some of which are useful, others simply take up space. Another major incentive to going with the Nexus line is that as an owner of one of their devices you are first to get updates. The current operating system for Android is Kit-Kat, which was first rolled out on the Nexus lines.
