4 Reasons Why Google Should Release a 2015 Nexus 5

google-0123The Nexus 5 Was Google’s Best-Selling Smartphone

Of all the Nexus smartphones Google has released over the years, the 2013-2014 Nexus 5 was the company’s best-selling model. It sold well over a million units within the first year of its release, blowing previous estimates out of the water. What’s even more impressive is that people continue to buy the original Nexus 5, attesting to its widespread popularity. Google should attempt to replicate this process by releasing a new variant of its popular Nexus 5 handset.

The Nexus 6 Is Too Big

Don’t get me wrong, the Nexus 6 is a great smartphone with equally as impressive hardware. However, it also has a few major disadvantages, one of which is its 5.95-inch display. At nearly 6 inches in diameter, Google’s latest flagship smartphone is more of a phablet and less of a smartphone. This has drawn criticism from many users, as it’s difficult to carry around and use the Nexus 6 like a typical handset. According to iDigitalTimes.com, the new 2015 edition Nexus 5 will sport a smaller 5.2-inch display.

The Nexus 5 Didn’t Require a Contract

While nearly every major smartphone on the market requires users to sign up for a 2-year contract if they want to purchase it a “decent” price, Google took a step in a different direction with the Nexus 5. It sold the device at a flat, no-contract price of $349 for 16GB version or $399 for the 32GB version. Consumers today have become increasingly wary of signing up for 1 to 2-year contracts, and for good reason: they don’t want to get stuck into a contract they can’t escape. Hopefully, Google will take the same approach with its upcoming 2015 edition Nexus 5, allowing consumers to purchase it without a contract.

Google Can Improve on The Original Nexus 5

Granted, the original Nexus 5 was nothing short of a superb device, but it also had its flaws. The 8-megapixel primary camera attached to the rear, for instance, wasn’t the best, and many users complained of its delivering poor-quality photos. If Google proceeds with a new Nexus 5, it will most likely fix the problems and issues associated with the original Nexus 5. This is good news for loyal fans who have been searching for solutions to the camera, dropped WiFi, etc.
