As you'd expect, they weigh a fair bit as well. 219g, to be exact. Which is a lot more than the, which tips the scales at 130g. Then again, the Nexus 5 doesn't have buttons made of titanium, or a faux-crocodile skin case to carry it in.
Only 999 of the Radical range will be made, so best snap one up now, if you've got a spare grand lying about.
