On Thursday Google had announced the Nexus 5,the next generation product in Google’s own smartphone line.The fifth Nexus smartphone just like its predecessor Nexus 4 is also built by LG.
Now that it’s all official,all technical data are known or confirmed and it is time to compare the new Nexus with its predecessor.What’s new in Nexus 5 and how does two smartphones stand in terms of specs?
It quickly becomes clear: In all aspects,Nexus 5 is a significant development over Nexus 4,specially in terms of size and pixel density.The processor is up to date(Snapdragon 800 CPU), the internal memory has been expanded.Nexus 5 is much slimmer than Nexus 4, with 8.6 millimeters thin.Overall Nexus 5 is slightly thinner than its predecessor. And for photographers: The optical image stabilizer (OIS) from the LG G2 has also made it into the Nexus 5.The Only criticism this new phone has to digest is the battery capacity,which has been slightly bumped to 2,300 mAh(200 mAh more than that of Nexus 4′s)–which would definitely disappoint many Android fans.
