This is RealHardwareReviews unboxing of Google Nexus 5. Since the start of Android many suspected Google would soon come to the table with a phone of their own. When the Nexus 4 was revealed it fit a niche not seen before; power and beauty in a low enough cost to compete with the prices other manufacturers charged for a 2 year contract discount with their devices.
The success of above average specifications at a below market price point grew the Google name as a competitive smart phone and tablet option. With great manufacturers like Asus and LG, Google is now a house brand for smart phones and tablets.
The Nexus 5 is a thing of beauty with a clean OS that out performs the S4 and iPhone 5 in our in home start-up tests. The Nexus 5 and Galaxy S4 screens feel like clones of each other in quality and size. The basics of this phone are its major selling points, and with a price that kills the competition the Nexus 5 is a no brainer. It’s lack of accessories are completely over shadowed by the amount of money saved on the device cost and the fact most consumers will purchase higher end accessories with their phone anyways.
