Previous Nexuses have always been just a little behind in processor department, but Nexus 5 comes with a top-of-the-line ARM chip in the Snapdragon 800. Users get a standard internal storage choice, while no SD card is still a downside. 8MP camera with the addition of OIS should offer a satisfying picture-taking experience.

The device has a larger screen compared Nexus 4, but its dimensions have barely changed. It’s even slightly lighter due to a soft-touch plastic back replacing breakable glass. It feels like a smaller version of 2013 Nexus 7.

Of course optional accessories will be available soon: four bumper cases in gray, yellow, black or red ($34.99) and two flip cases “QuickCovers” in either black or gray ($49.99).

The device is for sale in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan and Korea (arriving to India soon).
