Nexus 5 has a 8 MP OIS camera that incorporates advanced technology to shoot vivid imagery with a wide range of color and light intake. And while you’re holding the camera, Optical Image Stabilization will steady the shot even with shaky hands, so your photos and videos will come out sharp and clear.
Capture Extraordinary Moments
Life is remarkable. Take home the best of it with help from imaging features like HDR+, combining multiple exposures for one perfect shot with vivid daytime and sharp nighttime images—or Photo Sphere, which creates unmatched, immersive 360° views so you can capture and share the full story.
Brilliance at your Fingertips
The 4.95” (445ppi) Full HD IPS display lets you see details in vivid, lifelike color—making it a great canvas for your best shots. Plus, advanced in-cell Display technology uses fewer layers, allowing for sharper visuals with less glare and two times faster touch response.
Long Live Power
Fast 4G LTE and Wi-Fi® connectivity combine with cutting-edge power from the quad-core Snapdragon™ 800 processor and newly envisioned Android™ 4.4.2 KitKat®, so you can race through games, zip around the web, and switch between apps at the flick of a finger. And, do it all throughout the day with a high voltage 2,300 mAh battery.
Simple, Modern Contour
Precision-built from strong materials, Nexus 5 has a minimalistic design, which provides unique contrast with a sophisticated high gloss front and matte soft touch rear finish.

Great Standby TimeI've had my phone for about a month now.
- Standby battery
- Double-tap feature
- Large screen
- Fast response
- Sleek design
- Removable battery
- Delay on camera (there are some fixes out there)
- Phone calls: I've been told my voice is super muffled using this phone
- Aux jack: it's a little finicky. Fixes on the internet told me to use headphones that have 2 rings
