Google and LG-manufactured Nexus 5 is finally here. This product boasts to be the first device with the latest Version of Android KitKat 4.4. Now is the best time to take a deeper look on the device available at the Google Play Store today and to see if there was any truth in the data showcased in the leaked service manual (Some say, came from Google itself).
The phone as hinted by the leaked manual showcased images of a white device as well, so we knew that was in store. From the launch we understand the wait was worth it, along with the much seen and awaited matte black finish phone, classic white is a refreshing chic option that stands a class apart.
The buzz about the launch date also turned out to be true, as the phone hit the Google play store on the 1st of November. So techies waiting with baited breath should be at ease now, here is why the wait was justifiable:
The Android 4.4 KitKat device flashes its beautiful 5-inch display with 1080p. The processor is a quad core with 800 Snapdragon chipset set at 2.3 GHZ. The happy feature of this device is the whooping 2 GB of RAM with a seamlessly integrated active LTE radio. Giving all those something substantial to look forward to.
Quick features that might add a twinkle in the eye for the techno snots:
- The Camera: Primary standard set has: 8 MP, 3264 x 2448 pixels, autofocus, optical image stabilization, LED flash.
- Features include Geo-tagging, touch focus with face detection and photo sphere.
- Yes to the Video feature too, with 1080p@30fps.
- What’s good to know is that it has wireless charging so that can be a load off for those always forgetting to carry their chargers with them.
- Google search maps, Gmail, Youtube and Gtalk are an added plus, not to forget a Calendar to have all your relevant dates marked with an additional topping of Picassa.
- The voice memo/dial/commands makes the device and it’s working smooth in operation and effective for your active voice commands.
- Those who are big on sound and data have a yes on the loudspeaker with a 3.5mm jack and a card slot of 16/32 GB RAM. Stocked with features that have the techno snots raising a brow, this phone is forecasted with fairly commendable ratings that would be agreeable to many.
For those anticipating the launch date, the wait is finally over. With its fantastic features and a fairly reasonable price, the device is a treat safely said. The variety of the white option is very appealing indeed and sports a better elegant body as compared to the leaked images of the service manual.
Yes the wait was crucial, the talk was rumored with a lot more, some were trumped with a better outcome and improved features. Now is the time for this device to shine in its true brilliance and hog the spotlight, even though it may have taken a small delay but then again it is rightly said that: Good things come to those who wait.
