For those unfamiliar with the handset, the Google Nexus 5 sports a 4.95-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, a high pixel density of 445 pixels per inch (ppi) and Gorilla Glass protection to make it scratch-resistant. Under the hood, the device packs a powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.26GHz, Adreno 330 graphics and 2GB of RAM. The Nexus 5 comes with 16GB of internal storage capacity. On the downside, however, it has no microSD card slot for additional memory. In terms of software, the smartphone already runs the latest Android 4.4 KitKat.

Other specs of the Google Nexus 5 include an 8-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), enhanced HDR+ mode, and other neat features, as well as a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter. Both cameras can record full HD video.When it comes to connectivity, the Nexus 5 comes with 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 with Bluetooth LE, and GPS. A large, non-removable 2,300 mAh battery will provide up to 13 hours of talk time. The smartphone also boasts wireless charging capabilities out of the box, which would require purchasing a wireless charging pad.
