Google shows off the latest features of its flagship device

Well, the Nexus 5 is here, and Google has just posted the first official commercial on its YouTube page. Take a look and see if you spy anything interesting — we just see some basic demos of the camera and gallery. We're still picking up all of the official info on the Nexus 5 and KitKat as we watch.

With an advert like that the camera better not be shite. 32GB Blk ordered.

eahinrichsen says:

The black 32GB model sold out fast. I ended up getting the white 32GB.

Ry says:

Interesting.. The ad shows the voice commands from the Google Now screen. Can it wake up by voice like the Moto X?

ShawnMeds23 says:

Nope. :(

Glebun says:

yes

Per Google, you need to say OK Google from the home screen. :(

Ry says:

Thank you Jerry.

They definitely "demoed" several low light situations.

what is up with these companies promoting their products with people goofy dancing, wedding parties, and frolicking on mountaintops? Most people do not care about a phones camera. as long as it doesn't take green and black pics like the old Nokias of 2001, its good enough. Companies should market their products to normal people instead of these camera happy wanna be hipsters. Normal people are fat guys with beards who live in the basement.
Case in point, the android central crew. the only guy I can relate to is that fat white guy who looks like Jim Belushi, everyone looks like a try hard.

Because sentiment sells, you cynical bint.

And yes, nearly EVERYONE cares about a phone's camera. Even my inlaws (who are significant in age and not tech people) have replaced their traditional cameras with smartphones.

You sir, "cokeblack" are so very very wrong. I almost think you may be jesting.

Same for subsequent posters who dismiss photo capabilities. What else is important? Texting? Phone reception? we are past all that. Oh, I forgot, the dingy cave,, dirty underwear, stacks of empty pizza boxes, unshaven, no shower gamer's world where photos are totally out of the realm of possibility. In fact, sunlight could be dangerous.

Camera capabilities are extremely important. So much so, Google is endeavoring to provide excellent camera capabilities on the new Nexus 5. I am looking forward to the camera capabilities review as I know everything else is state of the art.

Where is the write up on KitKat?

Sorry but that does not make anyone wanna buy this phone. They makkng it seem like thats the best feature of the phone. Come on google you had to go harder than that. Every phone has a camera.

Well, it's more of how they were taken. The girl jumping up and down during one of the weddings, and being able to actually get a clear photos from all that movement. The mountain scene and PhotoSphere; a few low light situations; again more movement and the ability to acquire a good photo. Basically, google is trying to tell us that they worked on the camera, like they said they would since people complained. Hopefully, it takes good photos.

Glad you speak for everyone. *eyeroll*

NoNexus says:

Considering that the n4 and previous cameras were crappy, it IS a selling point this time around

Most phones cameras take crap photos. First HTC, then Nokia, Sony, and LG finally produced great photo taking capabilities. Samsung barely and only lately. Moto still struggling.

Those dismissing photo capabilities are justifying phones like the Nexus 4.

Just purchased my white 32G N5. Then I saw the commercial. Why do I feel like I just married Google?

JHBThree says:

What is this song? Shazam can't recognize it, and neither can searching for the lyrics on Google.

JHBThree says:

Thank you. I've tried everything, including putting the lyrics into a google search, and nothing came up.

benurd says:

OMG! Let me just say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Google for including ALL types of marriages in this video!

TenshiNo says:

They definitely ran the gamut on diversity. Good on 'em.
