Google Releases Nexus 5 Phone

Episode 1027 (51:01)

Google released its next smart phone, called Nexus 5, made by LG. Like the previous Nexus phone, Google sells this unlocked and unsubsidized starting at $349 -- that's nearly half the cost of buying most competing smartphones unsubsidized. Make sure to buy it from the Google Play store though, because other retailers like Best Buy currently sell it for around $700 instead! This may be because there's a longer wait to get it from the Play store at this time.

The Nexus 5 is a solid option, but Leo warns that it does not have a removable battery or an SD card slot. The camera is 8 megapixels. Leo will review the phone when he gets it, and will have more to say about it then.
