If you’re a die hard Apple fanboy, you probably have no clue about what the LG Nexus is. Well, the LG Nexus is to be the successor to the ever popular Samsung Galaxy Nexus. This means that it will most probably be Google’s next flagship device.
The device has been on the radar a lot recently, as it will compete directly with Apple’s brand new iPhone 5, which means the LG Nexus has to pack a powerful punch. It does, with a quad core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, a colossal 2GB of RAM and a very high resolution 1280×768 display (if you’re not so knowledgeable on what this means, it’s best to say that this phone will be very, very fast).
Anyway, that’s enough about the internals, because what we’re really interested in is how it fares against our precious iPhone 5s. Now, since this phone hasn’t been released, and nobody really knows how it performs in the real world, we can’t see a video comparing the two devices. However, what we can see in the latest LG Nexus leak is how it stacks up size-wise with Apple’s latest smartphone.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look, check out the pictures below:
If you’re familiar with Android, you’ll notice the similarities between the Lg Nexus and its predecessor, the Galaxy Nexus. From the front, it’s a very attractive device, but sadly, at the rear it follows what is, for me, one of the worst traits of Android as far as design goes. That is of course the tacky plastic rear panel. I’ll admit, it’s far better than on devices such as the Galaxy S3, or Galaxy Note, in-fact, pretty much any Samsung device (sorry Samsung fans). But even with that being said, I prefer the iPhone’s design by far, but that’s just my opinion.
I could compare the attractiveness of the devices all day, but as I’m sure you know, looks aren’t everything, and I’d like to say from the off that the LG Nexus seems to have the more ergonomic design. The curved back will be far more comfortable in the hand than the square edged rear of the iPhone 5. However, while we’re talking about ergonomics, I have to say that the tall, narrow screen of the iPhone 5 would feel much more natural than the Nexus’ slightly taller, slightly wider display.
All in all, they’re both very attractive, very functional designs. But for me, the scales are tipped in the iPhone’s favor. I think the design of the LG Nexus is just that little bit too busy, especially on the back, but I still wouldn’t turn down either of the devices. Anyway, I’m anticipating the LG Nexus with baited breath, so tell me your thoughts on the design of both devices in the comments below.
