Watch this: Google Nexus 5 souped up with Android KitKat, LTE, and low price.
At a press conference Thursday, Google introduced its latest flagship smartphone, the Nexus 5. It's running Android 4.4 KitKat, the newest version of the OS, which was released alongside the new device.
With its pure vanilla operating system, untouched by carriers or LG (the phone's manufacturer), it's sure to please devoted Android fans. The phone is also packing a few impressive specs that help it compete against today's top smartphones, including a high-resolution screen and powerful processor.
We compare the Nexus 5 with the Samsung Galaxy S4, the iPhone 5S, and the phone's predecessor, the Nexus 4. It's worth noting that the Nexus 4 is no longer for sale from Google, but you can purchase it from T-Mobile. Let us know which phone is your top pick in the comments.
