The Google Nexus 5 is truly a remarkable smartphone to own as it came out with high-end specs while costing like a mid-tier device. The Samsung Galaxy S5, on the other hand, is viewed as the most feature-packed smartphone. Today, we are going to compare both devices and find out which is better.
The first major difference between the Nexus 5 and the S5 is the display size. The Nexus 5 is considerably smaller as it features a 4.95” screen with 445ppi to offer. The S5, on the other hand, has a 5.1” display with 432ppi to offer. The sharper screen on the Nexus 5 is owed to its smaller screen since both devices run on the same 1080p resolution.
However, when it comes to performance, the S5 is superior to the Nexus 5. This is because it runs on the newer Snapdragon 801 processor with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 330 GPU. The Nexus 5, on the other hand, runs on the older Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 330 GPU.
Even in the field of photography, the S5 is better as it offers a 16MP rear and 2.1MP front cameras. The Nexus 5, on the other hand, has a disappointing 8MP rear shooter and 1.3MP front camera.
To make things worse for the Nexus 5, the device only have 16GB of internal storage to offer whereas the S5 has support for microSD that can boost its storage space to 128GB. This is more than enough for us to name the Samsung Galaxy S5 as the winner in this contest.
