Display / Specifications

LG chose to equip the Nexus 5 with a FullHD, 4.95 inch display, in the form of an IPS panel. Therefore it comes as no surprise that the contrast and viewing angles are both very good. Brightness is also very good on this display, when used in full sunlight we had no issues seeing and reading the display. On another note regarding the display, we found touch responsiveness to be excellent and the phone didn't misread any of the finger gestures. With regards to the SoC, there is nothing more powerful available on the market today than the 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800. The Nexus 5 is paired with it's 2 Gigabytes of memory, sure, more is always better, and no one would complain with more. I think LG have found a good balance with 2 Gigabytes. This coupled with the underlying hardware creates a buttery smooth user experience with plenty of horsepower for any app you might want to install on this phone. To round the package off, there is also an LTE module, which offers state-of-the-art on the go network speeds.
