Reviewers say: The display on the Nexus 5 is crisp, but is less saturated than displays found on other similar phones. Reviewers tout the excellent performance of the Nexus 5, but complain about the camera, which is inconsistent. Finally, some reviewers note the unexciting, though utilitarian design of the Nexus 5, which offers a good in-hand feel thanks to its size, shape, and texture.
