Nexus 5Complete spec listings for Google and LG's five-inch Nexus phone

The Nexus 5 is finally official, bringing a top-level smartphone hardware paired with stock Android 4.4 KitKat at an affordable price point. Though pre-release leaks have told us a great deal about what's lurking beneath the Nexus 5's hood, it's worth taking a glance down the spec sheet now that everything's official, announced and finalized.

The short version: 5-inch 1080p screen, Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of storage, an 8-megapixel camera and 4G LTE connectivity over a whole bunch of different bands.

You find the longer version after the break.

** Testing was conducted by Google using preproduction Nexus 5 devices and software. Talk time tests used default settings with WiFi off and LTE on. Standby time tests used default settings with LTE on and WiFi connected to a test access point. WiFi internet tests had Airplane Mode on with WiFi connected to a test access point, while loading three popular websites cached on a local server. The Nexus 5 loaded a page, waited 40 seconds, and then loaded a page from the next site. LTE internet tests had WiFi off and LTE on, and used the same testing method as the WiFi internet tests.
