Why Google Can’t Kill LG Nexus 5

The Google Nexus 5 was released three years ago and to date the Google and LG collaborated phone remains in the hands of its loyal users. This is strictly thanks to its reliability and specs that can run even the latest OS to date.

This is no surprise of course as the LG Nexus 5 boasts a 5-inch True HD IPS screen with 1080 x 1920 resolution, not something to scoff about even in 2017 mind you.

The Nexus 5 also packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor coupled with 2GB RAM and Adreno 300 graphics processing unit all under the hood – a decent workhorse.

Of course, when put up against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 or One Plus 5 it isn’t so powerful, but somehow owners of the Nexus 5 remain satisfied with its performance.

Over on Reddit, we are hearing numerous complaints strictly about battery life and while a quick change solves it, that seems to be something owners are more than happy to do as the Nexus 5 is still as fast and stable as the day it was released.

And with the many custom ROMs available on the market, the LG Nexus 5 continues to run the latest OS even if Google is no longer the source handing it out to them. With that said we expect the Nexus 5 to continue to be a popular choice and stay on the market for time to come.
