Today we wanted to take another look at the Nexus 4 vs. iPhone 5 in a diverse visual review, which some people might be considering picking up an iPhone 5 if they hate the idea of long Nexus 4 shipping times. We’ve just checked the official Google play store and see that the 8GB and 16GB Nexus 4 is sold out with no way to order direct for the cheaper price right now. If you’re not sure whether to wait for more Nexus 4 stock or to purchase the iPhone 5, then take a look at the videos below this article that compare both handsets from a number of perspectives. We’d also like to point out that some people have seen their Nexus 4 ship much faster than others, and in some circumstances a 5-week shipping estimate has turned into a one-week delivery, although this had been when orders were being taken on Google play.
LG Nexus 4 vs. Apple iPhone 5 – the video reviews below deliver multiple perspectives, which will help you understand the pros and cons for each device from more than one reviewer. It is fair to say that the choice might be decided based on mobile operating system for a lot of PR readers, and your choice could come down to the differences between iOS and Android. If you just want to see a comparison of specs then you should see our earlier article, otherwise head below and watch the embedded videos.
The first Nexus 4 vs. iPhone 5 video runs for just under 17 minutes and is also our favorite comparing these two smartphones, which is thanks to the reviewer pointing out the good and bad for both devices. This ranges from the materials used, specs inside, OS, and they manage to find pros and cons for most of these areas. You’ll see everything from a boot-up speed test to screen brightness compared, and a size comparison to app performance and how similar software displays on both screens.
In the second video you’ll see an editor from Android Authority take a closer look at the Nexus 4 and iPhone 5 side-by-side, which is interesting considering the website primarily talks about Android news, so some people might feel this review could be a little bias. The reviewer aims to find out if the iPhone 5 is more tempting than Google’s newest smartphone, the Nexus 4, and personally we found the video review pretty neutral. You can also see a third video that again gives another take on the iPhone 5 vs. Nexus 4, and in a totally different manner as well.
Did these video reviews sway you towards Nexus 4 or iPhone 5? Take a look at the videos and then share a comment, or take a look at the Nexus 4 vs. Galaxy S3 in another visual review. We’d like to point out that we’ve been hands-on with the iPhone 5 since launch, and while some people might not like the new lighter design it has been a welcomed change for us. The biggest issue we have is the problems with scratching on the Black & Slate model, which shows the aluminum very easy with the slightest scratch.
