The Nexus 5 is finally official. Google and LG took the wraps off their new flagship phone, while also giving us Android 4.4 Kit Kat. It has been an intense journey of leaks…and more leaks, but we’re finally here. The device is mostly what we expected with it’s 5-inch HD display, 4G LTE, 8MP camera with OIS, and black or (mostly) white color schemes (full specs).
The phone is available today on Google Play starting at just $349 for the 16GB version. If you want to bump the storage up to 32GB, you’ll only pay $399. It’s quite the deal; probably the best deal in the industry for a top tier smartphone. If you don’t want to order through Google Play, you can find it at Best Buy, Sprint, T-Mobile, Amazon, and RadioShack “soon.”
If you were looking for special Nexus 5 features that you can highlight for friends, look to all that Android 4.4 has to offer (full details), but the camera should also be greatly improved since it has optical image stabilization and a new HDR+ mode. This phone is also incredibly light and thin at 4.59 oz and 8.59 mm.
And in case you were wondering, here are all of the bands the phone works on:
- 2G/3G/4G LTE
- GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
- CDMA: Band Class: 0/1/10
- WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/6/8/19
- LTE: Bands: 1/2/4/5/17/19/25/26/41
So we’re looking at T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T.
