Google and LG collaborated to produce the Nexus 5 and although the device has reached its three-year milestone, loyal users are sticking by this beloved device as it still remains reliable to them.
This isn’t exactly surprising as the Nexus 5 comes with pretty top-notch hardware for a device of its age. The model features a 4.95-inch True HD IPS display measuring at 1080 x 1920 pixels.
The Nexus 5 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor mated to a 2GB RAM along with an Adreno 300 graphics processing unit – these are features that boost the device’s dependability up to this day.
However, we can’t deny that the Nexus 5 pales in comparison to devices such as the Pixel XL and Samsung’s Galaxy S8. That said, most owners aren’t giving up on this trusty device as it still provides them with satisfying levels of performance.
Various Reddit threads show that Nexus 5 users are replacing their device’s battery to keep it alive. These users claim that despite changing the battery up to three times, the device still manages to be stable and fast.
Many of them keep their Nexus 5 fresh by installing custom ROMs which allows them to get all the latest and greatest features into their aging device.
Well, this just goes to show that even if Google stops sending updates to the Nexus 5 altogether, people will still persevere with their Nexus 5 no matter what.
