When the android operative system was being launched in 2007 it immediately had an impact on the mobile market. It quickly became one of the most popular operative systems for mobile phones, and had over 43% in the United States in 2010. When people speak of smartphones today, they will generally speak of either Android phones or their biggest competition, the Apple iPhone.
As google released the Android operative system, they also started their own line of mobile phones, the Nexus phone. These phones are released by Google, but are co-developed with other mobile equipment developers. . They launched the first Nexus phone, Nexus One, with HTC, and this was the first mobile phone to use the Android 2.1 operative system. As the model became an instant success they later released the next two models in the line with popular mobile company Samsung. The Nexus S and Nexus Galaxy, the latter being launched in conjunction with the new Android 4.0 system.
The next two in line, Nexus 4 and 5 were manufactured by LG. Nexus 5 was released in October 2013 and is the most advanced mobile phone to date. It has a 1920 × 1080 pixel resolution as well as a 1.3 megapixel camera.
So what’s so good about the Nexus line of phones? Well, for starters, it’s the essential phone for Android fans. Nexus phones are always launched coinciding with the release of the latest Android system, so that when you buy a new nexus phone, you will have an updated version of your favorite operative system, that won’t be available for other phones for a while.
Secondly, the Nexus phones are well known for being reliable mobile devices with a lot of different functions. By using Google Play, you get access to hundreds of thousands of applications that you can download to further extend the usability of your phone. You get access to several sources of entertainment such as films, music, games as well as online gaming such as casino games.
In my own opinion, I would always prefer a Nexus phone in favor of an iPhone. There are several reasons as to why this is, but mainly it’s the freedom that the Android system gives you. People using apple products often feel locked up in the “Apple world”, which isn’t as varied and diverse as the Android system. In my opinion, I think that Nexus phones both look and feel better than an iPhone. Usually, Apple are known to overprice their products which is something that isn’t as apparent with Nexus phones.
As for the latest version in the series, the Nexus 5, there has already been an updated model released on the market. The original phone was released on the 31st of October 2013, and the updated version was released in December. The changes are only minor, however. The new version comes with bigger speakers as well as well as new microphone holes, which allows the user to experience louder audio.
