It’s finally here. The god of all Androids, Google’s flagship device, the LG Nexus 5.
I finally got my hands on it, 4 days after release…
Quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800
Adreno 330 GPU
5-inch 1080p IPS screen 445ppi
8-megapixel camera with flash and OIS
The Nexus 5 is available in both 16GB and 32GB. Unfortunately the phone does not have any expandable memory slots but this isn’t a huge issue! These days a lot of things are stored in the cloud. The 16GB version is available for £299 and the 32GB version for £339. (Shipping is an extra £10) Continue reading
The nexus 5 has finally been announced by Google! (About time ‘n’ all!)
Let me give you a quick run through of the main specs/features along with my impressions of it as of yet!
Let’s get this review started…
- Anrdoid 4.4 KitKat – Out the box, what mare can you ask for? Perfect timing.
- It boasts a full HD 4.95″ display – What more can be said? With 445ppi, I don’t think anyone has the right to complain. I’ve not yet seen one up close but we can safely assume that this is as good as it bloody gets!
- 8MP Camera with Optical Image stabilization – Although some may whine and what-not about the fact that it is 8MP, I think this is more than suitable for a smartphone of today. It has a 1.3MP front camera which may not make for Ideal video calling… But the phone excels in other departments, regardless! Nice! Continue reading
The new Nexus 7 (2013) has been all over the internet ever since it was announced. Now that it has been released, I’ve seen a lot of great reviews for this mammoth of a tablet. Asus and Google worked together to create a reasonably priced tablet that boasts pretty much flagship specs.
Everything you’d need in a tablet was present in the first Nexus 7, but this 2013 edition has blown the roof off of the virtual roof and has surpassed certainly my expectation for a tablet that you can pick up for roughly £200 more or less…Wow.
It does have a slightly smaller battery than the first edition but so far I haven’t seen many complaints about that. As well as this it has a 5MP rear facing camera, which is really just the icing on the cake. The camera, however, doesn’t seem like the form factor of the device and quite evidently wasn’t the focal point of the tab. Continue reading
