The unlocked, black Google Nexus 5 D820 16GB Smartphone from LG improves on its predecessor, the Nexus 4, with a bigger 4.95" in-plane switching (IPS) display and a larger Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution. The IPS panel allows for wider viewing angles while the native resolution allows the Nexus 5 to play back 1080p Full HD content without upscaling or letterboxing. The display is also a capacitive touchscreen with full support for the multi-touch gestures incorporated into the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system. The screen is also made with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for high scratch resistance and screen durability.

The Nexus 5 is powered by a quad-core 2.26 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM. The micro-USB port allows you to charge as well as transfer data quickly from your computer to the Nexus 5 and vice versa. The micro-USB port also supports SlimPort. SlimPort uses a single cable to deliver high-definition video and audio from your Nexus 5 to a wide range of external displays, including projectors, PC monitors, and HDTVs. In order to take advantage of SlimPort, you'll have to purchase a SlimPort adapter (sold separately).

Bluetooth 4.0 is onboard for pairing with other Bluetooth-enabled devices. 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi is also integrated for high-speed Internet connectivity. Built-in NFC allows you to instantly connect to other NFC-enabled devices for content sharing, simply by tapping the two devices together. GPS with GLONASS is also on-board for using Google Location and Maps services. Additionally, the Nexus 5 has an integrated 2300mAh battery that can deliver up to 17 hours of talk time and 7 hours of Internet browsing on a cellular network. The battery can also be charged wirelessly as well.

The Nexus 5 comes with the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system. KitKat provides improved features to Android. Google Now is integrated deeper into Android. In fact, you can start using Google Now without even having to touch the screen. Instead, you can simply say "OK Google" to your smartphone and you'll be able to do voice search, send a text message, get directions, or even start playing music. Speaking of voices, the phone app has gotten a revamped look. Instead of the tired alphabetical sorting, KitKat will evaluate which contacts you speak with most often and automatically prioritize your contacts list accordingly. Also, the phone app is integrated with Google Maps so you'll be able to look up nearby restaurants and hotels directly from the app. On a related note, Caller ID also gets some Google Maps integration as well. If you receive a call from a phone number that is not in your contacts, Google Maps will search and display any matches from local businesses. It's clear that Google's goal with Android 4.4 KitKat is reduced Android fragmentation and a personal, customized experience.

However, the Nexus 5 may not work on certain CDMA carriers, such as Verizon, even if they support the same frequencies.

                Comments about Google Nexus 5 D820 16GB Smartphone (Unlocked, White):

                I use my new phone for personal calls and browsing. It has replaced my Vonage line, which for a few years replaced my old traditional landline. The variety of settings makes it very customizable (although I still have to figure everything out). Google's penchant for simplicity really helps understand what each feature is or does (up to an extent).
                The bad: I didn't know how to get started. Some terminology was new and I needed to go online and lookup how to use Nexus 5, which had a wealth of useful info.

                            Not much to say other than it worked for us here at Texas A&M University. We needed 10 solid Android phones for an Android programming class and these Nexus 5's worked flawlessly. B&H had an excellent delivery time. No fuss at all.

                                  Phone seems to work well after installing updates. Initially the phone would not let you answer incoming calls. Had to apply the Android update in order to make that go way. It was a bit frustrating, but after the update everything was ok. Runs fast.

                                          Comments about Google Nexus 5 D820 16GB Smartphone (Unlocked, White):

                                          The Nexus 5 is an absolute masterpiece and makes a huge statement. Strong construction, powerful and fast, sleek design, beautiful user interface, and full Google integration makes this a top contender.

                                          The user interface is sleek, modern, and easy to navigate. And the fact that Google is not only just a tap away, but a voice command away, makes this a companion. Forget siri, when you've got the powerful and robustness of Google's search and voice commands available to you. It's amazing what this device understands. From "Remind me to check the mail" to "What song is this", the voice command and search is accurate and definitive.

                                          The build of the phone is also another achievement for LG. Not too thin, not too thick, a perfect size and weight, the phone feels solid and fits perfectly in the hand.

                                          The only con I would have to bring up is the battery life, and it's not even much of a con either. Compared to some of the battery life of other smartphones, the Nexus 5 doesn't stack up as well. Using it throughout the day I can get a full day of use out of it, maybe a little less, and using it sparingly, i can get anywhere from a day and a half to 3 days out of it. But for the price you're paying, you should be able to get a little more out of it. But other than that, I'm thoroughly happy with my Nexus 5.

                                          I find the form great. It is thin, the screen is big, and it is really light! My small Samsung Exhibit has a similar weight. Performance is great, but the best thing is that the phone is unlocked.One thing I did not like: It took me 30min to configure the phone initially FOR NOT SHARING ALL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION. Google has some "Default" options that drive me mad.. Web history, broadcast locations, remember locations, passwords..download updates automatically, and even more. Besides that "privacy" detail of Android, the phone is great.
