After a seemingly endless barrage of leaks and rumors, it’s finally here folks. The Google Nexus 5 is now available for purchase on the Google Play Store. Now pause for a second, go and order yours, and then make your way back here. Don’t worry, we’ll wait.
As expected, the device is a powerhouse, featuring a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor. It also packs 2 gigs of RAM and 16 or 32 gigs of internal storage. This provides the mojo for a 5″ 1080p IPS LCD panel. The devices is powered by a 2300 mAh battery. The camera module should be decent as well, featuring an 8 MP sensor and optical image stabilization. And of course, the device will feature Android 4.4 KitKat. All in all, these are superphone-caliber specs for low- to mid-range prices.
