nexus fan, 14 Nov 2013how much of 16gb is usable was not mentioned? does anyone know?
Roughly about 12.5GBs.
The S4 and G2 both have Audience's noise cancellation chip, which is by far best in class noise cancellation. The N5 and HTC One both use Qualcomm's vastly inferior Fluence noise cancellation. I don't know what's in the Xperia and Moto X, but it's not Audience and also inferior.
I don't know why reviews ignore serious testing of call quality, beyond passing subjective remarks, but almost all do. In any case, this is one way the N5 falls short.
Ironically, the Nexus One was one of the very first devices to use the Audience chip and get attention for it. No subsequent Nexus device has had the Audience chip. This has been a big step backwards in call quality every since.
lol google now also works by saying kg !
forgot what i was saying!
The battery isn't nearly as bad once you turn off some of the over abundant battery draining options.
Great review as always.
I've been using mine for about a fortnight, bought it when nothing more interesting (qwerty slider etc) was forthcoming.
Its extremely good value and i'd recommend it despite the battery life. This review nails it in terms of + and - points. But the price point can't be argued with.
1.Looking at the CPU performance wondering, if they had really used Snapdragon 800 or just overclocked version of Snapdragon 600?
2.Battery disappointment was expected, due to low capacity battery, however surprised to see that camera performance is also average.
3.Also why Google went with LG in first place, even if they has Motorola in-house option?
4.Sorry Google will buy Nokia Lumia 1520, which will available after 25-Nov-13 worldwide.
Was waiting for this review. Now choices left are LG G2 & HTC ONE.
Can' decide between LG G2's speed, camera, screen size bur plastic feel VS HTC Ones,s good speakers, alum. Body and htc sence but not so good camera and slower processor.
iPhone 5S is better in most of the bench,arks,it has Touch ID,it's better in battery life test and it has better sunlight contrast ratio than LG Nexus 5 but unfortunately it's a lot more expensive than Nexus 5.
No matter what the review is...but at-last GSMArena Review is here ..
A camera deemed okay by Gsmarena is good enough for me but that endurance rating is just horrible :( Will probably have to install a custom kernel and underclock/undervolt the phone the day I get it. People on xda report better battery life if you just mess around a little.
The web browsing battery life..... Wowww that's so bad. But not surprised, nexus 4 was very terrible also.
Well done Google, an ugly phone with low storage and no battery life, and again a subpar camera, makes the ois seem like a waste.
It's cheap and it shows, not worth it.
Good review. Bringing out positive and negetive points.
Now my feedback to google :
1. The loudspeaker and headphone audio quietness is unacceptable for some music enthusiasts like me.
2. Also since current camera standard is 13MP, it would have been nice to have at least best 8MP cam.
