iPhone 5C vs. Nexus 5 – How Does the Display of These Smartphones Compare

Apple Incorporated introduces new and updated iPhones in the market, giving a price cut to the older versions.

The strategy has been the trademark of Apple Incorporated, since the last couple of years. However, this time around, the company came up with a new strategy. Apple Incorporated introduced not one, but two smartphones, simultaneously in the market. The release of iPhone 5C provided the masses with an alternative option along with Apple’s flagship smartphone, the iPhone 5S. Regardless, what the alphabet ‘C’ stands for in the iPhone 5C smartphone, the handset comes with a similar spec sheet as that of its predecessors, but with more color options.

In comparison, the Nexus series of the Google smartphone has provided the masses with a pure Android experience. Since the release of the Google Nexus One, the company has been producing new and updated smartphones in the Nexus series. The Google Nexus 4, released last year, impressed the masses, primarily with its lower price of $300; which gave other smartphones a run for their money. The Nexus 5 comes with an impressive and powerful Android 4.4 KitKat OS and with 4G LTE connectivity. In addition, the low cost of the Nexus 5, available at $349 for the base variant, impresses the masses even more.

Today, we stack up the iPhone 5C against the Nexus 5, in terms of their display.

In terms of design, the Apple Incorporated did not hold anything back, when it comes to the screen of the iPhone 5C. It comes with a similar screen as that of the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5S.

In addition, the color reproduction, spectacular outdoor visibility and wide viewing angles offer the user with great viewing experience. The screen comes with almost similar display features as that of the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5S. The mid-range smartphone with a pleasant display offers the user with a great choice, worth every dime spent.
