Both the iPhone 5C and the Nexus 5 may not be much of an upgrade, as compared to their predecessors.
However, both these smartphones rank high on the minds of the potential buyers. Apple repacked its iPhone 5 handset in a polycarbonate plastic body and renamed it, the iPhone 5C handset. However, the 5C comes in a plethora of color options, which was absent in the iPhone 5 smartphone. In comparison, the Google Nexus 5 is no different than what has been mentioned above. The Nexus 5 comes in a matte finish, dumping the shiny look of the Nexus 4 handset.
This has been the strategy followed by most smartphone manufacturers in the present smartphone arena. These smartphone manufacturers change a small bit of their successful handsets and their fan following queue up in front of stores, waiting to get their hands on the latest device. Let us compare the two handsets in terms of their hardware specs.
Processor and Memory
The dual core Apple A6 processor, clocked at a speed of 1.3GHz, coupled with a RAM of 1GB powers the iPhone 5C handset. The processor is capable of delivering a smooth performance, similar to that of the company’s flagship variant, the iPhone 5S handset.
In terms of memory options, the iPhone 5C comes in two internal memory variants – 16GB and 32GB. The lack of 64GB variant makes the user all the more vigilant of what to store in the handset.
In comparison, the Google Nexus 5 handset comes equipped with the latest Snapdragon 800 chipset. The company did not hold itself back in equipping the handset with the latest processor available in the smartphone market. However, considering the price at which the smartphone is available, the impressive gesture by the company is a boon to the potential user. The Snapdragon 800 SoC (system on chip) comes along with a quad core Krait 400 processor running at a speed of 2.3GHz. The processor is coupled with a LPDDR3 RAM of 2GB and Adreno 330 graphic processor, which offers the user with a smooth performance. The processor of the Nexus 5 can handle anything that is thrown its way. It can handle both trivial and high intensity tasks with ease.
However, the lack of external storage capacity of the smartphone is a disappointment. The handset comes in two internal storage variants – 16GB and 32GB, making the potential user cautious of what they store on the handset.
