sam, 13 May 2014Hi Shubham,I am going to buy a smartphone tomorrow should I go with s4 or nexus 5,my main conc... moreI can go on and on about these phones. They are too different. I'll tell you the complete breakdown and you choose what you want. Firstly, we take into account that nexus 5 doesn't have an sd card slot and the 16 gig version will give around 12-13 gb storage. That's not enough. So you will have to go with 32 gb nexus 5 as you have to keep internal memory as free as possible as when you deplete internal memory, phone gets too slow and laggy.
So let's compare 16 gb s4(i9500) and 32 gb nexus 5.
Build and looks: nexus has a more fragile build and has non removable battery whereas s4 has removable battery, sd card slot and a decent build( it has taken fall atleast 15 times and just has some scratches).
Screen: s4 obviously. Better viewing angles, contrast, perfect blacks and better sunlight legibility in s4 screen. You can't match an amoled with lcd.
Battery: s4 has around 50% more battery life.
UI.:Now this depends on personal preference. You like features and power or you like speed. Nexus 5 is faster. Really fast. In return, s4 has touchwiz which is slower but has a very functional ui.
Speaker: I believe nexus 5 has the lowest quality speaker I have seen on a phone. Oh they really sound cheap and volume is kinda low. S4 has mono but loud speakers.
Camera: s4 thrashes nexus 5 in camera. Nexus 5 has a lower res. Smaller sensor and the proccessing is also not good. So the nexus 5 doesn't produce good images. S4 is quite good in camera and wind by a large margin.
Performance: nexus 5 takes it. It's faster and has a better chipset.
Updates: Google has 1.5 year upgrade plan for every nexus whereas Samsung has period of more than 2 years. But s4 released earlier. So both will recieve upto same time. But nexus recieves update earlier. See, don't worry about updates, google and Samsung are pretty good at it. Note that now both phones are at kitkat.
Price: in India, nexus 5 32 gb costs much more than s4 16 gb.
Now its your choice. You choose what you wanna buy.
Have a nice day
Anonymous, 13 May 2014YOU SAID ON THIS FORUM last month- u r moving to windows phones this month! have u sold ur s4 ... moreYeah I have sold my S4, and it's so pleasuring to not see it in front of my eyes, or carry it with me. I am using a Nokia 1200 for past two weeks, and haven't missed it for a single second other than when I need to check the scores of football via TheScore.

How about using a Temp... moreAnyone will manage to get a scratch on this, unless one baby his / her phone. I was very confident that I won't be able to scratch it because it has GG3, but after using it for 3 months without any type of protective screen I saw three very mild scratches. So applied a screen protector.
Glass screen protectors are great. I highly recommend you to apply one.
Did anyone managed to get a scratch on this Gorilla Glass 3 screen yet? How about using a Tempered Glass screen protector anyways, just to be on a safer side.. Any thoughts welcome.
