the good and bad
By shrey gautam | 1 May 2014
This phone is good in performance and display but weak in camera and battery backup. The battery feature should have been improved before release.

Awesome Gadget with some compromises. !!
By Sumit Chauhan | 2 May 2014
The nexus 5 is the best phone in this price range, it does come with a small battery & the camera is not the best considering other flagship models but the fact that you get the latest chipset from Qualcomm & the adreno 330 GPU along with 2GB ram & most important of all updates from google for the next 18 months at least makes this phone a value for money product, another stand out feature for me is Corning Gorilla glass 3 which means a screen guard is not required for the screen however some may disagree. Pro & Cons have been discussed in many other reviews so i thought i would state a few battery saving tips. 1) Screen brightness set manually as per requirement & not on auto. 2) Turn Off Google Now if not required. 3) Uncheck Wi-fi scanning even when wi-fi is switched off. 4) Bluetooth,GPS, Wi-fi,NFC & other wireless features switched off when not required. 5)Vibrate on keypress also switched off. 6)Refrain from using Live wallpapers. 7) Keep Widget usage to a minimum & keep as few home screens as possible. 8) Manually update apps switch off auto-updates as constant search for updates online does drain battery. 9) Toggle between 2G/3G as per requirement, especially considering 3G reception is still not great in india. 10) Kill all apps that you dont want running in the background.

Great phone at an exceptional price.
By abcd sdf | 6 May 2014
First of all ,I will list down the pros of nexus 5. 1. Pure unadulterated android version,although somewhat you feel like its more of Google. 2.Exceptionally fast processor and bright full hd display. 3.First one to receive latest android updates. 4.Last but not the least,Best value for money phone available in the market in this range. The cons- 1.Average battery life. 2.No slot for external memory card, although you can get the 32 GB version also. 3.Not great camera. All I can say is,if you are ok with its battery life and camera,then just buy this phone,I guarantee you will not regret it.

Why the Google Pixel didn’t work in India
By Arvind | 4 May 2017
The Google Pixel is the first phone actually made by Google . It is not a reference design to OEMs like the Nexus devices, but rather a device made FOR consumers, a high end smartphone that is Google’s vision of an ideal Android flagship, one that is aimed to dethrone the mighty iPhone. It has the best specifications, a compact design( Pixel, not the XL), the smoothest Android experience( optimized by Google themselves) and is critically acclaimed as the best Android smartphone ever. Google has launched a huge advertising campaign (read: spent lots of money), generated a lot of hype, raised consumer awareness, they even have back orders in America. Sounds like a great phone, doesn’t it? Then why isn’t selling in India? Well, the biggest problem is the price. At 57,000 INR ( about $750), it is expensive. It is in flagship territory. It is competing with the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone. The price itself puts it way out of the budget of ordinary consumers, people looking for the bang for their buck. Plus the price isn’t too far off from an iPhone, which apart from being a really excellent phone, is a status symbol in India. Why would someone buy any other phone, if they have the means for it to flaunt an Apple logo? Plus with Samsung pushing out deals and freebies on their range of smartphones, the Pixel is an even tougher sell, since Indian consumers like to get something “free” for their money, not to forget that Samsung has added loads of features to their S7 line, enticing users for their “you’ll use it one time, but hey, it’s there” features. Then there are the budget flagships, the “flagship killers”, giving people the same internals of the Pixel for roughly half the price ( the OnePlus 3) making the Pixel look like a bad deal. Plus considering that people don’t even buy an iPhone if not for the status symbol, these phones look even more attractive, and are selling quite well. So, the Pixel is not a bad phone, but the it’s punching a bit above its weight, atleast in a money-centric market like India, where a good deal is always preferred. One thing is sure though, the Pixel will sell if the price is lowered (isn’t that true for anything else as well?). But for now, there is no compelling reason for people to buy a Pixel yet, so until then the sales won’t really be the best.
