Nexus 5 was the only phone that didn’t come with a full-size USB port. You can use it to charge any USB device, but for data, it lacks the capability to connect to Google’s cloud.
We have been hearing that Google is looking into making it easier for users to plug in their devices and transfer files over the Google Drive. Though Nexus 5 doesn’t come with USB, there are rumors going around that it will, but with some devices not having a full-size USB port so far.
Nexus 5 is, in essence, a Nexus 4 with the difference being it has the entire Google Drive with all of its files on it. This is a very good thing because more than likely users will want to keep their Google Drive on their phone.
Nexus 5 is also a Nexus 4 that comes with Android 4.4.4. That means it will have a pretty significant update to Android 4.4.4. It will be very soon, but if the Nexus 5 does not have the Google Drive, then you may have to wait for the Nexus 4 to get the update.
So how does this happen? Well, Nexus 5’s hardware is basically identical to the Nexus 4, so the update will be similar for the two devices. The only difference is the software update will be for Android 4.4.4, which means the Nexus 5 will not be able to boot past the Nexus 4’s Google logo.
That’s right. The Nexus 5 is not going to be able to boot past the Google logo, but Android 4.4.4, which is the version of Android that is currently the best version for Nexus devices, will be the one that will let you boot past the logo.
If you are running Android 4.4.4, you’ll be able to boot past the logo, but the update may not be available on a Nexus device for several weeks. The only way to get it will be by either unlocking your Nexus 5 and flashing the update or by using a factory reset. If you do manage to get the update, though, you’ll have to wait for your Nexus 5 to boot past the logo because the Nexus 5 does not yet support the Android 4.4.
The Nexus 5 will get the Android 4.4 update soon, but it’s not available in time for the Nexus 5 release that will likely be at the end of this year.
I agree that it is not as sexy as Nexus 4, but it does have a lot more apps. For instance, the camera has a lot more apps you can use. It also has a headphone jack, which I think is a nice touch.
Nexus 5 is not the next Nexus. It is, however, the next Nexus to get Android 4.4. Google is not rushing the update out to the Nexus 5 to get it ready for release. You’ll not have to wait for the Nexus 5 to get the update, but it will not receive it until sometime in January, which is why I’m still waiting to see how the Nexus 5 will handle 4.4.
