Hello dear friends! Back in 2013, after using the flagship 2011 Samsung Galaxy S 2 for two years and launching various new products in the “smartphone industry”, I realized that my faithful digital friend is out of date and my soul is desperately demanding something new.
The search for the ideal ended with a friend acquiring LG's Nexus 5 from LG. After listening to her enthusiastic reviews, turning it in her hands, playing with a “clean” and convenient interface, she herself did not notice how she became the owner of this miracle. There are no headphones for you, only a guide for use, a key for a SIM slot, and here is such a charger.
As I said earlier, the smartphone is assembled by LG, under the control of Google. There are three colors white, red and black. And two versions of 16 and 32 GB of internal memory. My choice fell on black, with 16 GB. There is no slot for a flash card, but this is absolutely not a problem. I listen to music through VK, or services from Google, for example Play Music. The rest of the media entertainment (video, pictures) is also on the Internet, or stored in the "cloud". The built-in memory is used to store books, applications and pictures taken on the camera. Not crowded even once.
About the camera I want to say separately. But there is nothing special to say. 8 mPix, there are several shooting modes, good color reproduction. There are few settings, but this is not a professional camera - right? And that is quite enough. Here are examples of screenshots and screenshots of the camera interface. It seems to me pretty not bad.)))
By the way, about OS updates. Since this is a Nexus, I get one of the first updates. Bought with Kit-Kat 4.0, recently received Marshmallow 6.0. As they say - a trifle, but nice. )) And the names in honor of sweets, and the "Easter Egg" as a gift. Google can cheer you up. )))
The battery is not that powerful, but you cannot call it weak either. Software optimization of the OS, plus proper use (for example, turn off Bluetooth, Wi-Fi if not using) give a relatively long battery life. With moderate use (listening to music, surfing the Internet, reading, sitting on VK), I have enough for a day. But he used to live longer, but what do you want? After all, almost two years.
Body. Well, you can’t name him the peak of design thought, but I like it. It is made of plastic. The assembly is excellent, nothing crunches, does not crack. The front part is “glass”, the back has a pleasant to the touch matte finish, ceramic power and volume buttons on the sides. SIM card slot. Lightweight, thin and comfortable in the hand. Despite its size.
Of the minuses. Pretty fragile. Two friends, the fall of their N5, from a small height ended in broken displays. I was more fortunate. It got off with a couple of cracks in the case, and scratches on the display. Which without a protective film, I dare to notice, and still looks neat. ))))
