Earlier this month, Google released its highly anticipated Nexus 5 smartphone on the 'Play Store.' If you've been keeping up with our blog here at KreativeGroupSolutions.com, you're probably well aware of the new KitKat Android operating system
Google has been working hard to develop. Well, the search engine giant/tech mogul has implemented the KitKat Android operating operating system in their Nexus 5 smartphone, but this is just one of the key selling points that's forced the Play Store to sell out of the Nexus 5. To learn more about the Nexus 5 and how it fairs in comparison to other smartphones like the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5S, keep reading.Size and Dimensions
First and foremost, let's talk about the Nexus 5's size and overall dimensions, as this will undoubtedly be a huge selling point for many users. If you compare the Nexus 5 side-by-side with the Samsung galaxy S4, you'll notice the two next-generation smartphones are strikingly similar in appearance. In fact, they both look nearly identical, only with a few minor nuances. The Nexus 5 features a 4.95-inch display screen, however, will the Galaxy S4 features a full 5-inch screen display. How much of a difference does 0.5 inches make? Truthfully, it's such a small amount that very few users will notice.
In terms of weight, both the Nexus 5 and Galaxy S4 are the exact same size: 130 grams. This is an incredibly light feel that's comfortable to hold and use, especially for a device with a 5-inch screen (well, almost 5 inches).Processing Power
Now that you know a little bit about the cosmetic side of the Google Nexus 5, you're probably wondering how much processing power it holds. Regardless of which model you choose, all the Nexus 5 devices currently available for sale feature a powerful quad-core 2.3GHz processor. Many industry analysts claim the Nexus 5 processor is nearly twice as fast as the Samsung Galaxy S4, making it a serious contender in the smartphone industry.Price
So, how much does the Google Nexus 5 cost? The entry-level model, featuring 16 GB of internal memory, is currently being sold on the Google Play Store for $349, and that's without
a contract. You can choose to double your internal memory to the 32 GB for $399. This price is certainly enticing considering costly price tag attached to the new Galaxy and iPhone. However, the one advantage of choosing a Galaxy S4 over the new Nexus 5 is the option to install and use a MicroSD card (which isn't available in the Nexus 5).
