Nexus 5 vs. Xperia Z1, Galaxy S4, HTC One and the LG G2
Google chose the run up to Diwali as the ideal moment to unleash the Nexus 5 and we have to say, despite the impressive specifications of the smartphone, we knew almost all the details thanks to the numerous leaks making the rounds on the Internet. Nonetheless, we think the Nexus 5 is impressive with the features and specifications on offer.
In the recent past, we have seen a large number of flagship Android devices impress us. To distinguish themselves from the crowd, these smartphones bring some unique features. The Galaxy S4 brings with it a slew of gesture-based features, multi-window apps, quick glance, smart scroll, air view and more. The HTC One on the other hand has a great build and brings an “UltraPixel” camera to the table. The LG G2 has a complete redesign with the button placement and one of the best displays we have seen on a smartphone. The Xperia Z1 boasts of waterproof abilities, so you don’t need to worry about dropping your smartphone in the bathtub.
Below, is a quick specifications comparison between the Nexus 5 and the competing flagship devices. We have only included devices around the 5-inch display mark and not devices such as the LG Optimus G Pro and the Galaxy Note 3 or the Z1 Ultra.
