Nexus 5 Review
The Nexus 5 is a smartphone co-developed by Google and LG Electronics that runs the Android operating system. It has been created in collaboration with LG. As with all previous Nexus devices, the Nexus 5 runs on a clean version.
The Nexus 5 is offically over, with Google stating on the Play Store that ‘The Nexus 5 is no longer available for purchase’. We’re a little sad to be honest as this was, and continues to be, an excellent handset for those who want a vanilla Android experience. It’s just received an update too, with Android 5.1 now available with a number of handy tweaks.
At launch almost everything about the Nexus 5’s specification was top-drawer, from its Snapdragon 800 processor to its Full HD screen and the very latest version of Android. Phones with this kind of specification usually cost more than £500 SIM-free, but the Nexus 5, astonishingly, was £200 cheaper than that.
It’s held out pretty well over the last 18 months too, the offical price ended at £299 but you can find one on eBay for about £250 new or £180 second-hand. At these prices it’s still a serious contender if you’re looking for a SIM-free handset.
