Finally, Google’s Nexus 5 is available to purchase directly from the Google Play store. The phone is available in black or white, and can be bought in either 16GB or 32GB variations (£299 and £339 respectively). There is currently a 2-3 week wait for the black phone, but only a 3 day wait for the white phone.
Amongst the features of the new phone are:
- Android 4.4, KitKat
- An advanced new camera lens for brighter night shots and sharper action shots
- A 4.95″ display offering 445 pixels per inch (ppi)
- A 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU
It’s obviously fast and sporting the latest gadgetry, and is cheaper than it’s competitors, but for me it seems to lack the ‘wow’ factor – more evolution than revolution. Here is a video about the new phone:
