Nexus 5 Pre-Release/Speculation Thread

    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.

    Do you go into seizures if you don't get that need? ;)

    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.

    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.

    If you wanted a good camera, you could check out those Sony lens attachment things.

    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.

    Yeah, I had similar feelings about them.

    Any speculations on if the camera will be equipped with image stabilization?

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

    It sure does, only this time we don't have to worry about Verizon screwing things up.

    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?

    Hahahaha I remember that. We all went crazy complaining about how VZW handled the launch, and #vzwfail (or whatever the hashtag was) was on the trend for awhile, even after the phone was released.
