LG Nexus 5 - Full phone specifications

They seem very sure about this list of specs.

They also seem very sure about the 3gb ram. I find that to be very unlikely.

Do you think this could be changed via over clock software/with custom kernel of this is hardware only.

Clocks are generally pretty easy to change, but how it will affect the devices stability is another issue =p

Also if you look at the top of the gsmarena link they actually say "Unofficial preliminary specifications."

I was an iPhone user until I got the Nexus 4. The biggest disappointment has been the battery life on it with only a 2100 mAh battery. I was really looking forward to the Nexus 5, but with a larger screen, more pixels, and a more powerful CPU, a 2300 mAh battery just seems like such a minor upgrade. And with other upgraded internals, I'm skeptical as to whether or not overall battery life will even improve at all.

I wonder if assuming that the nexus 5 is a derivitive of the G2, would the bigger g2 battery fit?

Edit: Just reread the gsmareana notes, it claims that the battery is non-removable.

Agreed! on xda there is some speculation that it might still be an OIS camera with discussion about it might also have a bigger sensor size which is good

When you get about 5MP, it's pretty irrelevant IMO. In fact, I'd rather my phone was 5 or 8, anything bigger and the memory footprint gets to large.

It's the quality of the optics etc that make for a decent picture. The camera and phone manufacturers have been brainwashing us for ages on this, always promoting their device as having more MPs, it's not that important.

To each their own i guess =p

5 MP just feels way to low. even with a decent 5mp point and shoot the lack of detail in anything over a 4x6 gets very annoying.

I understand the play optics and OIS have in image quality but the fact that they are cutting back on the cam sensor does not bode well for the rest of the camera hardware. Still if they do get an OIS 8MP cam in there that could still be decent, but i have a feeling thats just wishful thinking. I would love to be proven wrong though!

I assume this means the N5 that the leaked log was taken from had 16GB... so that probably means one of 3 things.

  1. it could be the low end model and a 32GB is in the works
  2. It could be the high end model and a 8 GB is in the works
  3. They will only release a 16GB model
Who knows its all guesswork right now

Also another article I really like on camera optics if anyone fancies a read

Ya I'm just hoping there is a 32gb coming. If not, I'll be going with the LG G2.

^ this.

Sigh. The ONE thing that makes a phone work for me is the removable battery.....Car chargers frankly suck, mine never last....and I move around alot for work...if the phone goes low, I have the second battery.....
I bet this phone's appetite makes up for the 500 mah increase over the Gnex I have...So I guess I will be stuck with a dying phone near the end of a moderate to heavy day....
sigh

They make quite a bit of progress towards battery efficiency with each new generation

While a 3,000 mAH battery would he nice. I think 2,300 would be just fine for my uses

I hope this phone wows me enough to sacrifice better coverage on VZW and unlimited data, but it's looking like my S4 with AOKP will be fine and I'll wait another year in the hopes of another VZW Nexus...

Just to make sure, would I be likely to see a battery life improvement? I have pretty much decided to get this phone as long as its under 450$.

However, battery life is a big thing for me; heres what its currently like:

- It'll last a whole day (7Am - midnight) of light usage.
- If I use anything intensive (Kik messenger, games, etc) for any amount of time, I must charge it to make it last a day
- If I game or use Kik all day, I must charge it up to 3 TIMES (from 10-100%) for it to make the day
- I must lower brightness to 25%, turn off ALL push notifications, lots of location services, etc.

Am I due for better? I dont need it to last days, I just need it to make one whole day no matter what I do within reason.

Idk I get the feeling that the GRAM might not make the cut, which seems to contribute a fair amount to the G2s efficiency. If google is trying to save money I would expect the battery, screen, camera, and GRAM to be the first things to go or get pared back

Then expect roughly the same battery life as an HTC One. Same battery capacity, larger screen area size to light up, but more energy efficient CPU. Also stock Android helps a little.

So in terms of battery if it doesn't get GRAM, the Nexus 5 will have 2 advantages over the HTC One: Snapdragon 800 and stock Android.

The HTC One has one advantage over the Nexus 5: smaller screen to keep back-lit.

And since "Screen" is typically at the top of my battery stats in settings, this could cancel out the two advantages the Nexus 5 has.

if your going to compare phones from other manufacturers a better comparison might be with the recently released Sony Xperia Z1 (just subtract roughly 25% to account for the smaller battery in the N5) since it has the same SoC and screen size/resolution.

Nexicans? Galaxy Nexus hypebeast round 2?

I'm almost certainly getting this. All I need is a 5" 1080 screen and a decent camera. S800 is pretty sweet too.

Well since the Nexus 5 will carry LG screen tech, I'm not so sure the Sony Z1 would be a good comparison. Plus I really do think GRAM will see an appearance in the Nexus 5.

But if you want to compare something with the same resolution, battery capacity, and even the same OS (a factor that can't be considered in any other case), then we should look at the HTC One GPE.

I hope it gets GRAM (though I also hope Verizon removes their head from their ... so I expect to be disappointed). It is a very smart idea.

I also hope that they use the language core in the s800 like on the X. I'm curious if the s800 has the ability to use one of it's DSPs as a low power contextual awareness chip like the X too.

Back to your post though. Neither of those phones makes a great comparison because they both have huge differences. The chipset difference in the One can't be overlooked.

Unfortunately the best phone to compare it to is also not quite yet on the market which is the Asus Padfone Infinity 2. 5'' screen, s800, and 2400 mah battery. Plus Asus runs almost completely stock android as it is.

This could be pretty awesome if true.

Nexus 5 to be first smartphone with MEMS camera: fastest on a phone, Lytro like functionality

Here is a link that shows the log entry
http://www.myce.com/news/exclusive-technical-details-on-the-nexus-5-camera-69032/

Edit: Probably not a MEMS camera but a sony backlit sensor, that is supposed to be pretty nice

its interesting that they are saying the price difference between the Note 3 cam ($15) and the MEMs cam ($25) would be enough to decide what kind of quality camera the N5 gets... man if it were only a matter of paying $15 or even $30 extra on top of the N5 price to get a top quality cam I would gladly pay it lol.

its interesting that they are saying the price difference between the Note 3 cam ($15) and the MEMs cam ($25) would be enough to decide what kind of quality camera the N5 gets... man if it were only a matter of paying $15 or even $30 extra on top of the N5 price to get a top quality cam I would gladly pay it lol.

The HTC one is a poor comparison because it has a completely different SoC, its just too large of a variable when comparing smartphones.

I actually looked into the attachments, but for something I want to just carry around in my pocket and snap a pic when I see something I like, the Sony camera modules are just to big. For those occasions were I know I want high quality pics there is always my DSLR.

image stabilization was talked about in the leaked log, but no info on if its digital or optical image stabilization.

Nexus 5 to come as Nexus 4 (2013) like Google did with Nexus 7, here are the arguments

Ah, the ups and downs of that thread. Wasn't there an IRC or a google hangout or something while the announcement was made in singapore?
