The end is nigh for the Google Nexus 5

2

The future of the the Google Nexus 5 is somewhat uncertain after Google confirmed that production of the device would stop early next year.

The red and white versions of the device have already been removed for the Google Play Store, with the 16GB and 32GB black versions of the device currently being listed as out of stock.

According to TechRadar, Google has confirmed that black versions of the device are not currently available but will be remain in production until the end of Q1 2015, at least.

However a Google spokesperson has been quoted as saying “once they are gone, they are gone”, so if you have been thinking about purchasing the device you might want to get one whilst you still can.

The Google Nexus 6, which we reviewed here, was launched back in November and has replaced the Nexus 5 as Google’s flagship device, is due for release in Thailand early next year.

However, as the Google Nexus 5 is available in JayMart for around 15,000 THB, which is about half of the price of what the Nexus 6 will retail for in Thailand, the Nexus 5 offers good value and will still remain a very capable phone for some time to come.

The Google Nexus 5 includes an impressive HD display 4.95 inch 1920 x 1080 display (445ppi), is driven by the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and is available with either 16 or 32GB versions.

The Google Nexus 5 has just been updated to the latest version of Android’s operating system, Android Lollipop 5.0.

    I have the 5 and I’m not trading. I understand the 6 is bigger which I wouldn’t care for. I’m not adjusted to Lollipop yet so I have to hunt for some things. I wish they wouldn’t do that with updates.

    The only thing I would like to be different on the 5 is to have an easily changeable battery so I could carry a spare when traveling. My sole reason for choosing the Google 5 is that it’s worldwide unlocked, but I’ve been most happy with it.
