The upcoming Nexus 5 appears again

I’m guessing that you’re aware of the upcoming LG made Nexus 5? The successor to the current glass backed LG Nexus 4. The phone that a lot of people are currently holding out for.
The upcoming Nexus 5 appears again
Well it seems to have appeared online again. This time it has appeared on a Mac website. Where member weespeed mentions the following.

Got to handle the Nexus 5. It is smaller than the G2.
Didn’t actually measure it, but holding it in the hand it is smaller.
It does feel good holding it. The black back cover feels like my Nexus 7.

The screen was ok, didn’t wow me like the Note 3.

The bezel is very small.

So the Nexus 5 is shaping up to be what seems to be an interesting sounding device. So far we’ve heard it’s a Snapdragon 800 device with a 2300 mAh battery, a 5″ 1080p display and a 8MP camera.


In my eyes Google have two options. They make it cheap or they make it good. With the forum member saying that the screen was only ok, i’m guessing that Google and LG are cutting corners to meet a price point. Let’s just hope that they don’t trim the camera module too much also.

So are you one of the people waiting for the Nexus 5? Is the wait killing you?

    If Google do a Nexus 5 with just 8gb again, then I’m betting the price will start at about the 300 quid mark.. However, I’m not even sure there will be an 8gb version.

    I’ve got a Nexus 4, I really like it. But, and let’s be honest about it, the camera was a bit crap. I’d be prepared to pay extra to get a half decent snapper. I can handle no expandable storage. I want a Nexus 5, I’m waiting for it, I’m reading the spec “leaks” but let’s just hope its not cut down too much. Shame about the glass back going though.

    Only 8mp camera that’s a disappointment

      It’s not amount of MPs that counts it’s the sensor size. If it has an 8MP sensor in a good size with some decent glass in front of it there is no reason for it to be a bad camera. The iPhone 5s ‘only’ has 8MP and that is a pretty good snapper.

    It better be a 32gb phone or im keeping the S4 which Im itching to sell….

      I think in this day and age (!) it should come in 16gb and 32 gb with the 8gb version binned. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did it in 64 and 128, not holding my breath though as both Apple and Google are pushing cloud storage.

      • Troy Dyall

        32 & 64 would be good.

    What is a good sensor size for a smartphone.I was going to buy the nokia 1020 for the mp count
