The iPhone 5 vs Nexus 4 : Comparison

You Are Here

Here is the detailed comparison of iPhone 5 vs Nexus 4. For a long time now Apple’s iPhone have been considered the phone to have. They’re smart, sexy and good to look at, and frankly a bit of a status symbol. But Apple has been getting a little stale of late, maybe even a tad complacent, and it might be time to consider a change of brand.

iPhone 5 vs Nexus 4

When you think of great phones, LG might not come at the top of your list. Things are set to change though. LG’s new flagship phone is the Nexus 4, and not only is it smart, sexy and good to look at, but it’s also an awful lot better than the iPhone 5. Don’t believe us? Then check out its specs below.

Why the Nexus 4 is Just Better in iPhone 5 vs Nexus 4

When it comes to speed, the Nexus 4 has the iPhone 5 thoroughly beaten. Its data speeds come in at around eight and a half times faster than the iPhone’s (168 mbps over a measly 80 mbps for the iPhone), meaning your web pages load faster and your downloads complete faster.

It has double the RAM (2048 MB over 1024 MB), making the phone more responsive and generally better suited to multi-tasking than the iPhone.

Couple that doubled RAM with a faster processor (which the Nexus 4 definitely has, running a 1500 MHz processor over a 1300 MHz one, a twenty per cent improvement), and you have a lightning fast, responsive, powerful machine. And the Nexus is noticeably more responsive than the iPhone.

Plus, the Nexus 4 has the ability to run multiple applications at the same time (we’re not sure why Apple hasn’t adopted this yet), which means you can safely search the web whilst you’re having a conversation on Skype at the same time.

The screen is far larger (forty per cent larger, the Nexus 4 comes with a 4.7 inch screen over Apple’s relatively tiny 4.0 inch screen), and has forty per cent higher screen resolution, meaning brighter and clearer picture quality.

Plus, as if you needed more, the Nexus gives you double the talk time, averaging around twelve hours of talk time on a single battery charge cycle.

Isn’t There Anything Apple Does Better?

In the interest of fairness, we’ll point out that there are a couple of advantages of the iPhone. It comes with far more storage. The iPhone 5 is available with a maximum of 64 GB of internal storage, compared to the Nexus’s 8GB. That means you can put more music and videos on your phone.

We’d like the Nexus to have more, frankly. And the iPhone is smaller, thinner and lighter than the Nexus, by around twenty per cent. But at these weights, twenty per cent isn’t actually that much, and the Nexus does have that bigger screen, which is where a lot of its size comes from.

In Conclusion

The Nexus 4 is a serious contender for Apple’s title. The Nexus 4 is an incredible phone, and beats out the iPhone 5 in nearly every category. With both of these devices you’re talking about spending a fair amount of money (though the Nexus 4 comes in cheaper than the iPhone, beating it again), and for that amount of money you should get the best device around.

Sadly for Apple, the best device around might just be the Nexus 4.
