5 Reasons Why The Nexus 5 Remains The BEST Smartphone


Here are 5 reasons why the Nexus 5 is still the BEST smartphone on the market.

Even with the recent release of next-gen smartphones like the HTC One (M8) and Samsung Galaxy S5, the Google Nexus 5 remains the best smartphone on the market. The Mountain View tech giant has done an exceptional job at bringing all the positive features that consumers want into a device, but taking a different approach with its inexpensive, no-contract-required availability.

#1) CDMA and GSM

The Google Nexus 5 runs on GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 as well as CDMA 800 / 1900. Other leading smartphones are often limited to either CDMA or GSM, but you can rest assured knowing the Nexus 5 will run on both types of networks. This is a huge advantage, especially for people who switch cell carries on a regular basis.

Note: There’s still no easy fix to make the Nexus 5 compatible with Verizon Wireless. If they decide to add the device to their lineup, we’ll be sure to let you know about it here on TheNexus5.com.

#2) Time-Tested

Purchasing a new smartphone on launch day is like playing a game of Russian Roulette, as you simply don’t know whether or not it will perform to your standards. You can rest assured knowing that the Google Nexus 5 has been tested not only by Google, but also the general public. It was originally released back in October 2013, and since that time Google has released a number of updates to fix bugs, improve performance, and make the Nexus 5 a better all-around device.

#3) Gorilla Glass

Another reason why the Nexus 5 is the best smartphone is because it features a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen. There’s nothing more disheartening than dropping your smartphone on the ground only to discover a cracked screen. While Gorilla Glass doesn’t necessarily mean the Nexus 5’s screen is crack-proof, it does offer an additional level of protection against such damage.

#4) Android KitKat 4.4

Being that it’s owned by Google, the Nexus 5 runs the latest version of the Android KitKat 4.4 operating system. The right OS can make a world of difference in a smartphone or tablet computer, and Android KitKat 4.4 is the undisputed king in this territory.

#5) It’s Priced at Just $349

Now for one of the main selling points of the Google Nexus 5: its price. The 16 GB model is available for sale through Google Play for just $349, which is significantly cheaper than other competing smartphones. And did I mention you don’t have to sign into a 2-year contract to purchase the Nexus 5 at this incredibly low price?
