LG NEXUS 5 price in Malaysia & Specs for December, 2018
The Mobile World Congress (a.k.a MWC) 2018, one of the biggest events in the mobile industry has just recently ended last Friday in Barcelona. As we look back at the festivities, MWC this year felt a little underwhelming, probably because Samsung stole the show before the event even officially began with the launch of the Galaxy S9. Nevertheless, the show still had its fair share of highlights that is worth talking about. Hence, below are some of the most notable handsets that were seen last week.
Watching YouTube on LG V30 just got better as the HDR version of YouTube is now available on the smartphone. HDR, which stands for high dynamic range, is a feature that not many smartphone users are unable to experience. It provides a deeper level of contrast and richer colours compared to what is usually seen on smartphones.
Another year, another flagship device from our favorite smartphone company – LG. It definitely doesn’t want to fall behind like it did last year with the G5. This year, the LG G6 is set to go head to head with its competitors by going back to the basics and focusing on what matters most to its users.

Part of the Nexus 5's charm as to why it is a favourite of many people is due to its design. It is by no means at all a very flashy or premium looking phone with its soft touch polycarbonate rear shell. The soft touch polycarbonate rear shell is matte and keeps things incredibly simple, aside from the horizontal Nexus branding and the slightly larger camera lens on the top.
Due to the nature of its design, the LG Nexus 5 feels great in the hand and is almost fun to navigate through. Its 5-inch display may be large, but with minimal bezels and a smaller chassis foot print, the phone is easily handled through a one-handed use. There is hardly any other smartphone out there that can provide the same type of balance in design as the Nexus 5.
Compact in Form, Large in Power
The Nexus 5 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset with a quad-core Krait 400 processor that is clocked at 2.26 GHz. The processor may be a little old with the current flagship of smartphones, but the Nexus 5 is still a very capable device. Its day to day usage is flawless, delivering smooth performance throughout its operation.
It is also very power efficient, even with a modest battery capacity of 2300 mAh – also thanks in part to the stock Android operating system with no unnecessary bloatware. It can also tackle most demanding mobile games from the Android Play Store with its Adreno 330 graphics processing unit that is part of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset.
Nexus devices server as "reference" smartphone of sorts, portraying the ideal smartphone Google wishes to see its powerful Android system run inside. As such, Nexus smartphones and tablets benefit of constantly having the latest and greatest in Android software updates first and foremost before any other smartphone brands out there.
Running on a pure Android operating system means that the Nexus 5 is free from the custom user interface that other smartphone manufacturers tend to put over the stock Android interface, making it different. But that custom user interface comes at a price: unnecessary bloatware which may slow down and bog the smartphone. A stock Android experience only comes with all of the core Google Play applications, and the rest is entirely up to the user, making it truly yours.
