Google today announced the Nexus 5, a new smartphone that runs Android 4.4 KitKat. The handset, manufactured for Google by LG, is similar to the LG G2. It features a 5.0-inch full HD display that is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with an Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Significantly, the Nexus 5 adds support for LTE, and it is compatible with the LTE networks run by AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile in the U.S. It also includes Bluetooth 4.0, dual-band Wi-Fi, GPS, and NFC. The Nexus 5 has an 8-megapixel camera with a optical image stabilization, HDR+ for improved colors, PhotoSphere, and a 1.3-megapixel user-facing camera for selfies and video chats. It also features some of the innovations seen on the Motorola Moto X, such as Touchless Control. This lets users say "OK Google Now" to wake the phone and launch Google Now voice searches. The Google Nexus 5 is available for preorder from the Google Play Store. It ships November 5. It is being sold in both black and white. The 16GB model costs $349 and the 32GB model costs $399. It will also be sold by several online retailers, such as Amazon.com, and brick-and-mortar retailers, such as Best Buy. Sprint and T-Mobile have announced that their own variants will be available shortly.

This phone looks great and Verizon would only **** up the main reason to get a nexus and I'm glad they can't screw with that. On another note so happy to see the touch less controls on this phone don't know if that's because of 4.4 or nexus 5 but its a good sign that similar android phones or all android phone in the future will have this.
It is because of 4.4 kit kat and how it now has Google Now available for voice control via the home screen on Jelly Bean you would have to launch Google Now to use the voice features. I am loving it. I have a Note 2 and the low cost and hardware on th...

Verizon is ultra greedy. Between NET10, Straight Talk and Go Phone, along with AT&T and now with the MVNO-AT&T getting LTE, Veriscum is a total rip off.

The only reason Veriscum can live is they get an extra mile or so of range for those in the o...

LG?

Why LG? I was looking to upgrade my Galaxy Nexus....but I won't buy an LG phone because I don't think LG hardware is any good. Why not Samsung, or Motorola?
Because of the cost to manufacture the phone it is much lower with LG. They have excellent hardware I am not sure what your criteria is based on when you say LG hardware isn't any good o.O... Have you seen the specs on that phone.
