If you have been trying to make a decision between the LG G2 and the Google Nexus 5, here’s a comparison between the two devices to help you make a calculated decision and pick the best choice for you.
Display and Design
The display we see featured on the LG G2 is a True HD-IPS LCD model measuring 5.2 inches which can render a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The dimensions for this device are: 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9 mm, while the weight is of 143 g.
The Nexus 5 features a True HD IPS+ display measuring 4.95 inches and that renders the same screen resolution: 1080 x 1920 pixels. This device is as well smaller (dimensions: 137.9 x 69.2 x 8.6 mm) and lighter (weight: 130 g) than the G2.
Hardware and Operating System
LG equipped the G2 with a Krait 400 processor (quad core clocked at 2.26GHz) and a Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 chipset from Qualcomm. The handset supports 2GB of RAM and two options of internal storage space: 16GB and 32GB (the device does not feature a microSD slot – meaning that the memory is not expandable). The operating system for the LG G2 is Android Jelly Bean.
LG equipped the Nexus 5 with a Krait 400 processor as well (quad core working at 2.3GHz) and the same model of chipset (Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 from Qualcomm), Regarding RAM and internal memory, the device has the same specs: 2GB of RAM and two variants of internal memory: 16GB and 32GB (there is no microSD slot, meaning that the memory cannot be expanded). What’s different is that this handset runs on Android KitKat.
The devices are quite different in the camera department. The LG G2 has a 13MP rear-facing camera (autofocus + optical image stabilization + LED flash), while the front-facing camera has 2.1MP.
The Nexus 5 has an inferior (but still impressive) rear camera of 8MP (autofocus + optical image stabilization + LED flash) and a front camera of 1.3MP.
There is not much of a difference in this category, but the LG G2 does last slightly longer than the LG Nexus 5.
The G2 smartphone sports a Li-Po 3000 mAh battery which is estimated to last around 17 hours and 30 minutes of talking time (3G).
The Nexus 5 is tooled with a Li-Po 2300 mAh battery unit which will last you around 17 hours of talking time (3G).
Both batteries are non-removable.
If you’re looking for the cheaper option, the LG Nexus 5 would be your choice, the 16 GB variant costing around $355.99. The LG G2 is not that much pricier neither, the 16GB variant being priced at $380.00.
