Entry price, high-end performance. The first Google tablet to sport the Nexus name is at last available for $200 with specs and features that are surprisingly similar to more costly high-end models. Is this a home run? Or is it another Motorola Xoom?

Does anyone really need a tablet? Probably not, when we’ve got phones and laptops that serve overlapping purposes. What makes the Nexus 7 so great is that it fulfills all its duties capably at a price that won’t make you feel guilty should the novelty wear off.

Nexus 7 (2013) vs Nexus 7 (2012) head–to–head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Having won five of our six categories, we have to say the 2013 Nexus 7 is a serious upgrade. The 2013 model features a more luxurious design, a more powerful processor, double the memory of the 2012 model and, to top it all off, one of the best displays we've ever used. That said, it's worth noting the 2012 Nexus 7 is still a very good device in its own right and it meets all the requirements for most tablet users. For this reason, while the 2013 Nexus 7 is a better device, early adopters who bought the 2012 model should consider whether they really need the added power before upgrading.

As the recent Nexus 7 rumors suggested, BestBuy claims to start selling Nexus 7 on Tuesday July 30th, followed by Staples the next day. The WiFi 16GB model will cost you $230, and for $270 you’ll get 32GB version. There have been many improvements in Nexus 7 tablet this year and the $30 extra charge for fast performing 7 inch tablet is, at least in my opinion, well justified.

If you want a tablet with which to actually do things, the Nexus 7 is the only option here. The other two are consumption devices - designed to be used to enjoy music, movies, games and books, as well as email, social media and web browsing. The Nexus 7 also offers greater variety in the places from which you can source media. But it is not nearly as easy to use as the other two. If you want a simple to use device with which to entertain yourself, you can't go wrong with the Kindle Fire HD and Nook HD. And the greater content available for the Kindle pushes us in that direction.

Overall winner: Nexus 7 Having put all three devices to the test, we have to say the clear loser is the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. Boasting average performance and grating software, the tablet doesn't live up to the standards set by its iPad Mini and Nexus 7 competition, even if it is cheap. That said for new users not embedded within any ecosystem, we have to say the Nexus 7 does offer better value for money, costing £100 less than the iPad Mini while boasting better performance, albeit with slightly less solid build quality.

Overall, we’d say the winner from our initial impressions is the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. Even though Apple has the gorgeous design and user-friendly OS, and we’re sure the performance will be super speedy like its current iPhones and iPads, the price just doesn’t add up. Paying another £110 on top of the Kindle Fire HD’s price tag for a device that offers the same storage and high quality screen is a tough sell.

The Nexus 7 tablet is in fact a so-called “game changer”, a product which swirls the market and gives other competitors a headache. The best compliment is to say that it feels like a tablet, which could also cost twice the amount and I do not feel that I am exaggerating now.

The Google Nexus 7 is currently selling for AED 1,200 for an 8GB unit which is a bit on the higher side considering that same unit sells for US$200 (AED 740.) At US$200, the Nexus 7 is a steal if you are ok with a small 7” sized tablet and is, without doubt, the best tablet to get. However,at AED 1,200, it is much closer to the iPad 2 which is currently selling for around AED 1,500 and with a larger screen and more tablet like interface, I think is a better buy.

For those looking for a premier, top end tablet experience, Apple's iPad remains the best choice, featuring the best screen on market and a streamlined operating system that allows it to match the performance of similar devices packing more powerful components.

Admittedly, the Nexus 7 needs a 3G version for true data portability, an absence which might deter some. Likewise, it can't match the media choices of Apple or Amazon and it won’t give the massive battery life of an e-ink reader either. Even so, the Nexus is good enough to make it a logical choice for anyone thinking about a smaller tablet for reading or watching video while out and about, and it's a steal at the price.

As strange as it might sound, my favorite Android tablet has long been an HP TouchPad running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (CyanogenMod 9). Until now, at least. While I still had hoped for more from Google with its first Nexus tablet, I am at least content with what it provided. It's a solid piece of hardware that is available for very little cash, and it works both quickly and smoothly. If Apple's iPad is not your thing, then the Google Nexus 7 quite possibly is.

Google succeeds at shooting Amazon's Kindle Fire out of the sky; the company has delivered a superior piece of hardware at the same starting price. The Nexus 7 also beats out the same-priced Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (an Android 4.0 tablet with lesser performance and half the storage, but with a MicroSD card slot), and it beats out Barnes & Noble's limited Nook Tablet (which adds a MicroSD slot, but is restricted by B&N's custom Android version and the apps approved for it). I like the feel and design of the Toshiba Excite 7.7 better, but that model costs twice as much as the 16GB Nexus 7. Google hasn't positioned the Nexus as an iPad killer, but it's worth noting that the Nexus's price is a 38 percent savings over the cost of getting a larger-screen, same-size iPad 2, and a 50 percent savings over a third-generation iPad.

Whether you plump for the Surface Pro 3 or Nexus 10 really depends on what you intend to do with it. One makes a pretty good makeshift laptop, while the other is still one of the best tablets you can buy but is all but useless for getting work done. As a hybrid device with a large screen and good performance the Surface Pro 3 could prove its worth as a work laptop for many people, although it couldn't meet my specific needs in this regard. And neither would I want it to. For the things I want from a tablet - the ability to get online, watch video, use social media and so on - the more portable, significantly cheaper Nexus 10 with its higher-resolution screen is the better choice.

Summing up the battle of the flagship tablets, the Apple iPad 4 manages to win out by triumphing in three out of the six categories over its rivals. Apple's tablet trumped the Surface Pro and Nexus 10 as our favourite for design and display, and proving the best out of the bunch for battery life. Despite winning half the categories, the Apple iPad 4 failed to win the major battles of performance and software, losing out to the Surface Pro due to its ability to run the full version of Windows 8. However, we felt Microsoft's tablet failed to deliver on too many occasions, such as in design and display to warrant a win over Apple's high-class device.

The Google Nexus 10 is clearly a brilliant tablet. It has high-end specs at a mid-range price, and that alone makes it deserving of attention. Add to that a generally stunning screen and near faultless performance and it really does start to look like an iPad beater. But after spending some time with it we can't quite be as enthusiastic as we'd like. The lack of expandable storage combined with the fairly limited internal storage really hampers its media capabilities. Since tablets are for most people a media-centric device that's a real issue and the single biggest problem with the Google Nexus 10, along with the screen offering slightly muted colours and contrast ratios.

It’s likely most big developers will fall over themselves to get their apps looking right on the Nexus 10, because this is the benchmark 10in Android tablet. The screen is superb, performance swift, and the price remarkable. The extra features of Android 4.2 are valuable, too. We won’t be promoting it to the top of the A-List above the iPad just yet, though. It isn’t quite polished enough, and the iPad’s library of tablet-specific apps means it just about holds the edge.

The Google Nexus 10 is an incredibly well built tablet with a bargain, price thanks to the hit Google are prepared to talk in order to attract customers to it's Android Play store. This makes it a bit of an unfair fight from the off, as although the two tablet's RRPs are not a million miles from each other, if Google wasn't subsidising part of the cost there really would be a big gap.

Google Nexus 10 vs Apple iPad 2 comparison review
Source: PC Advisor English
That the Nexus 10 is only £10 more than the iPad 2 is, on the face of it, outrageously good value. The Nexus is brand new, has an unsurpassed display, and offers the best all-round performance of any tablet around. The iPad 2 remains on sale to give Apple fans a lower-priced alternative to the full-specced iPad. But there are reasons for this situation. The Nexus 10 is heavily subsidised by Google as a means of getting people to use Android and - critically - buy apps and media from Google Play. Were Samsung to make and sell it on its own terms its likely the price would be nearer that of the Galaxy Note 10.1 - nearly twice as much. That doesn't stop it being a good deal of course. That said the iPad 2 remains a good deal. The combination of Nexus 10 and Android 4.2 alone offer a similarly high quality experience as Apple's iPad. So for those who just have to have Apple tech, but cannot afford the iPad 4, the iPad 2 is a decent point of entry.

The Google Nexus 10 and the iPad 2 have a price difference of just £10, for that reason alone we think it's worth putting the two up against each other to see what you can get for your money. Here's our Google Nexus 10 vs Apple iPad 2 comparison review

The Note 10.1 is an interesting and useful tablet. It's S-Pen offers creative options that make it unique amongst today's breed of tablets. It is reasonably priced and performs well. But the Nexus 10 is a game changer: the first tablet that can outperform the iPad, and priced to shift. It's just a shame it is tough to get hold of.

Apple iPad vs Microsoft Surface RT vs Google Nexus 10 head to head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Despite very stiff competition from its new rivals, the Apple iPad retains its crown as top 10in tablet, boasting a compelling complete ecosystem offering, a decent - albeit not on a par with the Nexus 10's - screen, fast performance and excellent battery life. However, we should point out that for those looking for a full-on laptop replacement, the Surface RT is currently the only valid option, featuring support for Microsoft's email and a full version of Office 2013. The only downside of this is that people wanting to use the Surface in this way will have to buy its Touch Cover keyboard add-on, which adds an extra £80 to the device's cost.

Source: V3.co.uk English
Having thoroughly tested the Nexus 10, we have to say we are very impressed. Despite packing a dual-core processor the tablet is more than powerful enough, easily matching the performance of its chief competitor the Apple iPad. Add to this the host of new features included on its Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, beautifully crisp screen and sleek design, and we can't sing the tablet's praises enough. For this reason, while we're not convinced it'll win over many users already embedded in the Apple eco-system, we'd fully recommend the Nexus 10 to any Android fan or new tablet buyer.

This is a powerful, effective tablet, especially if you want it for media consumption. It’s great for watching movies, listening to music and playing games, with the screen resolution looking particularly smart and the front speakers beating other tablets easily. The fast processor and 2GB of RAM ensure the tablet rarely slows down either. Does it kill the iPad? Not really, due to Apple’s iOS ease of use and plentiful supply of high-quality apps... but it comes close.

Still, that hasn’t proved a major stumbling block for the iPad with Retina display, and we imagine it will be a similar story here. It’s likely most big developers will fall over themselves to get their apps looking right on the Nexus 10, because this is now the benchmark 10in Android tablet. The screen is superb, performance swift, and the price nothing short of remarkable. The extra features of Android 4.2 are valuable, too. We won’t be promoting it to the top of the A-List above the iPad just yet, though. It isn’t quite polished enough, and the iPad’s huge library of tablet-specific apps means it just about holds the edge. But the gap is narrower than it’s ever been.

Apple's fourth-generation iPad ($499-$829), is our top choice for large-screen tablets. While the iPad and Nexus 10 share similar specs, the iPad's solid reliability and huge library of well-designed tablet apps win the day. While Android is doing well with 7-inch tablets like the Editors' Choice Google Nexus 7, for the OS to succeed on 10-inch tablets, Google really needs to give users better guidance on how to find apps that take advantage of the screen space here.

There’s no doubt about it, the Google Nexus 10 is a fantastic tablet that challenges – and in the case of the 300ppi display beats - the iPad in almost every department. Google has produced a genuine contender that’s slim, light and tactile; fast, effortlessly easy to use and a joy to play with. The screen is a sensation and deserves the plaudits, but the Nexus 10 isn’t perfect…yet. It gets pretty close – especially when you fully embrace Jelly Bean 4.2 – but until Google Play is furnished with more than a handful of 10-inch specific apps the iPad and its choice of 275,000 wins the battle.

There’s no denying that Samsung and Google have put together an impressively specified tablet in the Nexus 10. The incredibly high-resolution display is wrapped up with a very capable processor, and while the Nexus 7 feels like it makes some compromises in order to hit its price point, there’s less of a sense that the 10-inch version was built to a budget.

If you want a tablet for basic things like email, web, gaming and apps, this is the best option for now. It is both cheaper and better than most of the competition. There are a few exceptions: if you want a stylus, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a better alternative, and if you need Microsoft Office compatibility, the Microsoft Surface RT would be better. Unless you absolutely want iOS, there is simply no compelling reason to pay $100 more for an iPad. If you do, well… it’s settled.

The Nexus 4 is finally here and is priced at Rs. 25,990. If you have been waiting for this device, just go and pick it up. It’s awesome. The display is good, performance is excellent, you will be the first to receive all the Android updates and the phone simply looks gorgeous. On the downside, there is no expandable storage, the camera is lacklustre in low lighting and the earpiece has audio leaking. If you are searching for a smartphone between Rs. 25,000 and Rs. 30,000, the Nexus 4 can be at the top of your list along with the LG Optimus G, Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 and the HTC One X+.

Source: PC Advisor English
The Nexus 4 was our phone of last year. A game-changing super cheap but premium smartphone that offered great features, build and performance at a stunning price. Here we pit the Nexus 4 against Samsung's flagship Galaxy S4. The Galaxy S4 is a brilliant phone - although it's not without flaws. Here we compare the Nexus 4 and Samsung Galaxy S4, feature by feature. The Samsung often comes out on top, but remember that the Nexus 4 is significantly cheaper to buy outright. In fact, it remains an absolute steal at just £239, where the Galaxy S4 is a not unreasonable £450-£500.

Like the Nexus 10, the Nexus 4 is another class leader. Google have combined a refreshed version of their operating system with a well designed, powerful phone that’s more cost-effective than anything else on the market. The Nexus 4 goes head-to-head with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5, and while it might lose out in some areas such as slimness and storage options, its £239 price more than makes up for its few shortcomings.

Google Nexus 7 2013

The original Google Nexus 7 was the first mini tablet to be well received by consumers. The Google Nexus 7 2 is the latest, much anticipated release. It is a super sleek 7 inch device with beautiful black lines. It is easy to hold in one hand and it is not just an upgrade of the Google Nexus 7 - it features all new specs and design. The screen is bound to be the Google Nexus 7 2's biggest selling point. With a resolution of 1920x1200, the vibrant and stunning display is one of the best nowadays. The downside is that there are not too many apps available yet, which take advantage of this gorgeous resolution. However, this should change once full HD becomes a more common feature of tablets.

Behind the wheels of this beautiful device is the 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro, which gives the Google Nexus 7 2 all the power it needs. Games or high resolution videos will pose no problems. Despite the power, it manages to last up to 10 hours of web browsing or 9 hours of video playback which is impressive. It is a light mini tablet that can be operated with one hand means. So, it is comfortable enough to be used continuously for those 9 or 10 hours. Overall, this is the best option out there for everyone looking for a 7 inch tablet.

The original iPad mini is a really good deal. If I was investing in a new iPad it would be the one to go for. It's priced to shift and despite a display that has now been superseded by the best it remains a great device. But as Android has improved the Nexus devices have queered the pitch for everyone else. The Nexus 7 2 is not just cheap, it's really good too. And so if you are prepared to take a dive into the waters of Android, it is a great choice - and cheaper than the cheapest iPad.

The Nexus 7 is one of the best Android tablets available in the Indian market in terms of the overall user experience and build quality. However, its graphical performance was mediocre, and we did experience odd lags while playing heavy graphics games. Apart from this, the Nexus 7 (2013) tablet handled everything we threw at it with a degree of ease. If we had to mention other downsides to Nexus 7's complete package, they would be that the device tended to gobble up battery life quickly, and the limited storage (26GB user available). Our advice for power users will be to stay not too far from a charging point, as the Nexus 7 tablet tends to get below 40 percent battery within a few hours, which is disheartening.

The Google Nexus 7 2013 costs £199 directly from Google for the 16GB, Wi-Fi only edition. That's £40 more than the previous model, but we feel the increase is justified based on the increased performance, sleeker design and vastly improved display. It's feels like a top-end device now, one which holds up well in comparison to the more expensive iPad Mini, and is very much deserving of our Best Buy award. If you're on a tighter budget, the £130 Asus MemoPad HD 7 carries on where the original Nexus 7 left off, but right now this is the best 7in Android tablet around.

The 32GB LTE model is priced at Rs 27,999, which feels a bit expensive for a 7-inch Android tablet. However, when you compare it to Apple’s iPad mini with Retina at the same price, the LTE Nexus 7 offers better value as you get double the storage and LTE data too. Given these tablets were only just introduced into the market, the prices should drop in a couple of months. If you don’t need 3G, then the Wi-Fi only version is also a good pick as prices start at Rs 20,999. Compared to the 2012 Nexus 7, the new version has notable changes but honestly, the price difference does seem a lot. If it’s just gaming and casual web browsing you’re after, then then the old Nexus 7 is still a bargain for the price it’s retailing at. However, if reading eBooks and watching videos is something you do a lot, the new Nexus 7 is worth the premium.

The Kindle Fire HDX. It wins on the strength of its superior interface and software/content, though it excels in other matters, too. I found myself using the Fire HDX more often than the Nexus 7 to watch movies and to read on the train ride home. Its smaller size and convenient content carousel help guide you to exactly what you’re most likely to use a tablet for, without having to sift through a library of apps or spend hours setting it up. The HDX is also a keen choice for technologically challenged family members, as it offers better out-of-the-box functionality.

Source: V3.co.uk English
Having won five of our six categories, we have to say the 2013 Nexus 7 is a serious upgrade. The 2013 model features a more luxurious design, a more powerful processor, double the memory of the 2012 model and, to top it all off, one of the best displays we've ever used. That said, it's worth noting the 2012 Nexus 7 is still a very good device in its own right and it meets all the requirements for most tablet users. For this reason, while the 2013 Nexus 7 is a better device, early adopters who bought the 2012 model should consider whether they really need the added power before upgrading.

Source: V3.co.uk English
Summing up, we have to say we're impressed with the new Nexus 7. While it's not a milestone moment in Android's history in the same way its predecessor was, Google and Asus have made the right changes. Featuring improved performance, a new rear camera, amazing display and completely reworked design, the Nexus 7 2013 is currently the best tablet in its size and price bracket. In fact our only criticism is that, being released just one year after the first Nexus 7, which has also been upgraded to Android 4.3, individuals or firms that invested in the original own-brand Google tablet may not find enough vitally new features to justify upgrading. That said, for new users looking to try out an Android tablet, we couldn't recommend the new Nexus 7 enough.

There's no denying that (on paper) the new Nexus 7 2 is a all-round better tablet than the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. The only question you need to ask yourself is whether its worth the extra £50; we would suggest that it definitely is.

The Best Android Tablet Yet
Source: Hot Hardware English
The obvious highlight of the 2013 Nexus 7 is the upgraded IPS display, which now boasts a 1920x1200 resolution. Far be it for us to downplay the hype, because as far as we're concerned, this is one of the best looking tablet displays available, if not the best around.

Still, if you're considering a tablet now and are already dabbling in the Android ecosystem, we see know reason why shouldn't take the plunge with a Nexus 7. If you haven't invested at all with Android, you're still in a good place to start. You could wait and see about the next iPad mini, which is advisable for those who have racked up a lot of App Store purchases, but there's no way it'll be as affordable as the new Nexus 7.

The somewhat half-hearted approach to tablet optimisation is a shame and a bit of an issue for the Google Nexus 7, and it's something that holds it back against the iPad Mini. Apple's little tab has endless apps tailored for its screen, and the squatter ratio and extra 0.9in make it more suitable for interaction and creating content.

Should you buy the new Nexus 7? That depends. If you have last year’s model, you might want to hold out another year to see what else Google can cram into an affordable 7 inch tablet. But if you do decide to upgrade you’ll get a better screen, a faster processor, slightly longer battery life, and generally one of the best Android tablets released to date.

The Nexus 7, available within weeks in the UK and already on sale in the US, is without doubt the ‘best of the rest’, and the most impressive Android tablet to date - as well as being a superb entertainment device. It’s still slightly crippled by a lack of decent killer apps, but in terms of hardware, at least, Google has shown it can match Apple, and actually improve on the iPad.

The new Nexus 7 is poised to change the tablet game. It has a display and a price tag that puts the iPad mini to shame, and makes us wonder what's in store for the redesigned Nexus 10. Affordable price tags have bought the Nexus 7 some leeway, but it's no longer the dirt cheap option. Between Apple's premium iPads and Amazon's rock bottom Kindle Fire HD, is their room in the middle for a new Nexus 7?

90% New Nexus 7 2 review: Google's second generation 7-inch tablet
Source: PC Advisor English
I can’t help but feel a little trepidation. The previous-generation Nexus 7 had quite a few issues to contend with after its update to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. If I let the battery die, the tablet wouldn’t turn on without a hard reset, and the tablet became buggier and slower to use over time. I hope this new Nexus 7 won’t suffer from those foibles—because if history repeats itself, Google will have to do much more next time around to rid us of our bad memories. The second-generation Nexus 7 offers strong features at an affordable price. If you’re a seasoned tablet user, whether you should buy this tablet will depend primarily on whether you are tied to Google’s ecosystem. Still, this particular device can hold its own against any other 7-inch tablet currently available. At the moment, it has some of the best specs, a bright screen, and a few other little goodies—and it’s hardly a splurge. If you’re in the market for a 7-inch Android device, this is the one to get.

Besides the screen, the industrial design improvements and the overall responsiveness of the tablet are the most important changes from the first iteration. For those who want LTE, the ability to use 3 of the major U.S carriers with a single device is also extremely useful.

Google Nexus 5

Android users definitely should be giving the Google Nexus 5 a real consideration with its amazing premium tech specs packaged for very affordable price. It comes with the best processor a mobile can currently have, the Snapdragon 800 and 2 GB of RAM. So, it easily competes with the other flagship phones out there. Its Adreno 330 GPU promises to be able to run even the most resource hungry game.

It doesn't have problems running anything you throw at it. Its 5-inch 1920 by 1080 resolution IPS display makes things appear gorgeous and crisp on it. It comes with Android 4.4 KitKat and being a Google phone, it promises the latest updates will come to it first before any other. The camera is also a decent enough shooter with 8 MP and optical image stabilization.

Powering all these features is a 2300 mAh battery, which can last a day of normal use. Overall, the Nexus 5 is able to pack a great display with an amazingly fast processor at a great price. The battery is a little small compared to other flagship phones and its camera is mediocre but it gives you the best Android experience.

Having won six rounds to the Nexus 5's two, the Galaxy S5 is the clear winner. Featuring a more robust design, superior performance, better camera and clearer display, the Galaxy S5 outperforms the Nexus 5 in almost every way. However, with the Nexus 5 already halfway through its lifecycle as a flagship smartphone and costing close to half the price of the Galaxy S5, the Google handset does present far better value for money and is still a solid choice for any buyer on a budget.

HTC One M8 vs Google Nexus 5 comparison review: which is the best Android smartphone?
Source: PC Advisor English
As we noted when we originally reviewed the Nexus 5, it has the specifications to rival flagship Android phones, but at a much lower price. For a shade under £300, you get a great smartphone with only a few compromises. One is the plastic body, another is the lack of expandable storage. The HTC One M8 may have an aluminium shell (and a choice of three colours) and feel much more like a premium phone, but you'll also pay for the privilege: £550 if you buy it outright with no contract.

The Nexus 5 is a superb smartphone: we like the design; it’s as powerful as they come; the screen is great; it runs the latest version of Android; and the camera – although a weak point – is capable of producing good snaps and video if you’re patient. It’s the price, however, that swings things in favour of this Android handset. At $399 for the 16GB version, and $449 for the 32GB one, it undercuts its rivals significantly. That, coupled with its all-round capabilities, help to push the Nexus 5 to the top of the PC&TA A-List.

The Nexus 5 is a screaming deal. The Google Play Editions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One are no longer easy to recommend, because they cost $300 and $250 more, respectively; while they're both getting Android 4.4 KitKat very soon, they're still much more expensive, and the Nexus 5 neatly splits the size difference between the HTC One's smaller display and the Galaxy S4's wider and more difficult to hold form factor. The Nexus 5 has a faster GPU than both of them as well. But in the end, it's Nexus 5's subsidized price that's impossible to beat.

This is without a doubt one of the best phones on the market in terms of value for money. With a €349 ($349 US) to €399 ($399 US) price depending on the region, it is a very attractive package at a fair price.

With Google Now and voice search Android has been utterly invaded by Google’s services and that makes KitKat scarily powerful. More importantly, with an understated build, terrific screen and unflappable performance, the hardware is a worthy match for the glorious Android 4.4 software. While no device bearing the Nexus name has misstepped, with the frenzy around the 5 it’s impressive to say that it lives up to the hype.

When we reviewed the Nexus 4 we praised LG for creating a smartphone that took a step back from being overly designed, instead letting it become a window for the main event, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Despite that this is without a doubt the best Nexus yet, it’s one of the best Android smartphones available and, in a rather odd twist, it’s probably the best phone LG has made.

Although the issues we take with the Nexus 5 are considerable, they're not enough to keep us from recommending this device. One of the issues we have, which is the lackluster camera, might be resolved with a software fix. And even if it were a minor fix, it's not so bad that you'll never be able to take good photos with it. It may not have the tremendous battery life of the LG G2, or the cameras you'd find in the iPhone 5S or Lumia 1020, or the build quality of the iPhone or HTC One, but you're not going to be sacrificing much with what you're paying for the device.

The Nexus 5 has simple and understated style – none of the spangled glass rear cover of the Nexus 4 that divided opinions and made the phone slide off anything you put it on. The black model has a nice matt soft to the touch finish plastic casing. From the off, there's also a white model but we took a look at the former.

Nexus 5 Review
Source: Slashgear English
This isn’t the only smartphone that Android will be rolling with this upcoming season, but it’s arguably the best. The Nexus 4 found its way into more than one SlashGear writer’s pocket, and it’s a device that has stood the test of time since launch for many of the same reasons that the Nexus 5 prevails: price, quality hardware, and the promise of software updates direct from Google. The potential for just such an update is, if previous Nexus devices are anything to go by, a possibility we’d bet on. In fact, with at least as much Google software support and community – whether developer, friendly hacker, or accessory maker – support as was given to the Nexus 4, it’s easy to see the Nexus 5 having massive potential for success. It’ll be interesting to see how well the Nexus line continues to compete with the carrier-subsidized smartphone world, but in the off-contract environment, the Nexus 5 simply has no equal.

80% Nexus 5 review
Source: V3.co.uk English
The Nexus 5 is a fantastic smartphone with internal specifications and software that lets it match and at times outperform phones close to double its price. However, there are a few flies in the ointment: issues with its rear camera's autofocus have robbed it of V3's hallowed five-star rating. But even with these minor issues, the Nexus 5 offers terrific value for money and top-end performance, making it the best Android business smartphone currently available.

The Nexus 5 is the pound-for-pound the best value handset available on the market. It delivers excellent performance and has a vibrant full HD display but is not perfect. LG has understandable had to cut costs in the camera department and there's no way to expand physical storage.

80% Google Nexus 5
Source: Wired Magazine English
The bottom line on this phone is that it’s very nice, very fast, has a very sensitive touchscreen, and pretty great battery life (we repeatedly clocked more than 9 hours with moderate to heavy use, and more than 12 when using it casually). It’s also a pretty great deal for an unlocked phone at $349 for the 16 GB, and $399 for the 32 GB. The screen is gorgeous. The camera is flawed. The photo processing is fantastic. It’s loaded up with Google brains. And mostly, it does a great job of just disappearing like a good phone should.

Nexus 5 Review
Source: Ubergizmo English
In absolute terms, the Nexus 5 would earns a “very good” rating, but if you factor in that it costs about half the price of high-end phones, I have to kick it up a notch. The Nexus 5 provides an excellent (pure) Android experience, with the latest features and improvements of Google’s 4.4 OS. To really understand what the Nexus 5 is about, you have to look at it from two angles.

Google's Nexus 5: Best smartphone bang for your buck. There, we said it
Source: Reg Hardware English
That said, there's a simplicity and cleanness to the design that's very appealing, and a definite advantage for developers in that this phone is designed to be fiddled with. It's also very simple to crack open and replace certain parts should they fail. So, after using it for five days would I spend my own money on the Nexus 5? The answer is unequivocally yes; if you don't need the latest and greatest screen and camera and can live without removable storage, there's no better value phone out there.

the best phone $350 can buy Mobile
Source: Engadget English
A phone like the Nexus 5 would get our blessing even at a higher price, but the fact that you can buy it for as low as $350 makes it that much sweeter. We can't point our finger at any one feature that was clearly the victim of cost-cutting, with battery life being the only possible exception.

90% Nexus 5 review: Wouldn't be as sweet without KitKat
Source: TechHive.com English
The Nexus 5 is an attractive smartphone with an appealing price that will surely persuade many people to pick one up. Though the hardware is fairly mundane, the software will draw attention. Android 4.4 KitKat represents a significant evolution in Google’s OS, and it sets the Nexus 5 apart from the rest of the Android pack. If you’re on a GSM-based carrier such as AT&T or T-Mobile, you should seriously consider making the Nexus 5 your next phone.

90% Google Nexus 5 review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Battery life could be better and the camera isn't quite as reliable as the best out there – despite being great in some respects. However, these issues seem quite minor given the phone is £100-200 cheaper than the competition. The Google Nexus 5 is the high-end Android phone bargain of the year. Aside from a slightly anaemic battery it offers everything phones costing £200 more do.

Nexus 5 vs iPhone 5S comparison review: Google and Apple flagship smartphone meet
Source: PC Advisor English
Price is by far the biggest different between the Nexus 5 and iPhone 5S. Both firms have increase the price of their smartphone compared to the previous generation but there is a big gap between them. See also: Nexus 5: Where to buy. The Nexus 5 starts at just £299 while the iPhone 5S costs a comparatively huge £549 – both with 16 GB of storage. That's the kind of value for money which is hard to argue with but there could well be things that make you pay the extra for the iPhone so we'll look at design, hardware and software.

Sony Xperia Z1 vs Nexus 5 comparison review: two high-end Android smartphones slug it out
Source: PC Advisor English
If you want to buy a SIM free smartphone, then we'd strongly advise you chose the Nexus 5, it's an amazing smartphone with top of the range specs with a ridiculously low price tag. However, if you want to take out a lengthy contract then it really is a closer contest where neither the Nexus 5 of Xperia Z1 will disappoint you.

You simply cannot beat the Nexus 5's price. Sure, the Galaxy S4 has a nicer camera and features expandable memory, but that price, coupled with the new Android OS make the Nexus 5 hard to top.

You should buy SIM free, and therefore you should buy the Nexus 5. Both are great handsets, but the Nexus 5 is priced to shift. However, if you are likely to purchase on contract, you have a choice to make between two brilliant Android phones. Either way you'll be happy.

Google Nexus 5 review: Hands-on

From our short time spent with the Nexus 5 it appears as though LG has lost none of that knack, creating a seamless Google experience that feels fresh even if KitKat isn't the overhaul that Apple's iOS 7 might have been. To be truly sure though we'll need to spend more time it, so stay tuned for our full Nexus 5 review.

Hands on: Google Nexus 5 review
Source: Techradar English
The Nexus range has taken a real step forward here. The Nexus 4 was a great option for those that don't want to spend a lot, but the handset really began to creak after too long. The Nexus 5, while a little later in the year compared to the other top-end handsets, seems to be a lot more bullet-proof in terms of being able to carry on chugging for a couple of years. And what's better is that this will cost very little to buy directly from Google, meaning many will be able to snap this up and go on a rolling SIM-only deal to give freedom to upgrade when they want.

Google Nexus 5 preview
Source: Stuff TV English
The design of the Nexus 5 looks set in stone as press images of the device have appeared - and its looks are entirely in-keeping with what we've already seen. Rather than adopting the LG G2's crazy new rear-mounted controls, it has buttons on its sides – hopefully the internals will remain unchanged.

The reason for believing that the Nexus 5 features a fancy MEMS camera is because its camera module number – IMX179 – points to the Digital Optics' MEMS camera unit.However, Droid Life's detective work sadly casts some doubts. The model number is in fact for a Sony sensor, which just happens to be the sensor used in Digital Optic's MEMS system.
