The Battle of the Smartphones: iPhone 5s Vs Google Nexus 5

This is one smartphone duel that both Apple Fan Boys and Fandroids around the world have been waiting for. The Apple iPhone 5S vs. Google Nexus 5 ultimately represents Apple’s best against Google’s best, in this epic smartphone showdown.

iPhone 5s  Vs Google Nexus 5


The display of the iPhone 5s only offers 65% as much screen real estate as the Nexus 5 does. That discrepancy will not be quite that wide in regular use, owing to the Nexus 5’s persistent onscreen navigation bar. Both the screens are sharp, with the iPhone’s 326 PPI Retina Display. With that said, the Nexus 5’s 1080p IPS screen does pack in 185 percent more pixels. In my opinion, the display size of the iPhone 5s is the ideal size to have for a smartphone device.

Winner: iPhone 5s


The Touch ID sensor of the iPhone 5s is a unique feature that is unmatched in terms of security. By setting up a pass code, a user can save up to five fingerprints, and then just put the finger on the home button to unlock it. The iPhone outshine the Nexus in this aspect, with the latter having nothing in comparison, in terms of security.

Winner: iPhone 5s

Camera Prowess:

Many reviewers have been very kind to the Nexus 5 users. Some have dubbed it as the one of the few Androids devices that matters. However, the camera is one thing that Google could improve on the phone. When compared to other Android flagships, the camera of the Nexus 5 is pale in comparison. In the 5S, Apple has incorporated unique shooting features such as the capture of filtered images and clips without any compromise on the quality.

Winner: iPhone 5s


The iPhone 5S starts at $199 on a contract of 2 years for the 16GB model, while it will cost you $299 with a 2-year contract for the 32GB model and $399 for the 64GB version respectively. The Nexus 5 on the other hand starts at only $349 for the 16GB model, with no contract whatsoever. This low price point makes of the Nexus 5 makes it one of the offers.

Winner: Google Nexus 5


The iPhone 5s has an A7 chip with 64-bit architecture, making this smartphone the first official 64-bit one to reach the market. The M7 motion chip is another feature that makes this device a step above the Nexus. While the Nexus 5 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip. In conclusion, Apple has the upper hand yet again, based on the 64-bit chip.

Winner: iPhone 5s

Google hasn’t done enough to wow anyone with the Nexus 5. The device is great for those accustomed to the Nexus line. The camera is more advanced on the iPhone 5s, making it the finest piece of equipment to have. The 64-bit chip and the fingerprint sensor on the iPhone 5S also make for some great selling points.
