Google defines the Android 4.4 'KitKat' experience with the Nexus 5

The Google Nexus 5 is the standard bearer for Google's latest version of Android, version 4.4 'KitKat.' It is also representative of Google's egalitarian vision for technology, which is to make advanced technology as widely available to as many people as possible. To do this, it has priced the Nexus 5 from an incredibly low $349 off-contract for the 16GB model or $399 for the 32GB model, rumored to be achieved by selling the handset at or below cost. For this you get the fastest chipset currently available for Android smartphones as well as beautiful 5-inch display. As good a deal as it is, is the best technology and software that Android is able to offer able to match or beat the current gold standard for smartphones, the 64-bit Apple iPhone 5s? Read on in our full review of the Google Nexus 5 to find out.
