Nexus 5 vs Galaxy Note 3 specs clarified on video


The LG Nexus 5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 are both notable recent additions to the Android smartphone market, and if you are about to purchase a new handset you may well be considering one of these. Bearing this in mind we have a Google Nexus 5 vs. Galaxy Note 3 video to share that will clarify the specs and more.

The Nexus 5 was only released a couple of days ago and stocks are already running low, and the Galaxy Note 3 has also been extremely popular since it arrived in regions worldwide. The most noticeable difference between these two phones is the display size with the phablet Note 3 having a 5.7-inch display against 4.95-inches for the Nexus 5.

If you’re not too concerned about the difference in display size though and want to take all the specs into consideration, then the 10-minute YouTube video that we’ve embedded below this story gives a Nexus 5 vs. Galaxy Note 3 specs comparison. It takes many factors into account, beginning with details on the sizes with dimensions and weights shown.

The video also specifies the display differences, design touches and color options, and then processors, storage, and camera set-ups. Information is then given on the operating systems, with the Nexus 5 having the advantage of running the very latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS.


Helpfully some additional features of each are then pointed out, such as wireless charging for the Nexus 5 or the use of the S Pen stylus for the Galaxy Note 3. There are also details of batteries, with the Note 3 having the advantage of a removable battery, and the video wraps up with Note 3 and Nexus 5 price info.

To be frank these are both extremely impressive and desirable smartphones, and you won’t go far wrong with either. They both have so much to offer that choosing between them is likely to come back to personal preference of design, size and what you most use your phone for.

Once you’ve checked out the video below we’d really like to hear your comments about the Nexus 5 vs. Galaxy Note 3. Are you about to purchase either of these phones? If so, which one most appeals to you, and what was your deciding factor?

    I bought a nexus 5 today for £299. It a very nice phone but the single Speaker is terrible. This is something the other reviews seem to have left out and something I didn’t think to check. It nicer to hold than the samsung s4 but nothing like the htc one. Its still a good phone, well priced but tonight i’m wishing I bought a HTC one mini…

    Note 3 Note 3 what a beast… so happy with it. Battery is epic and the screen is simply superb. One way to handle the large size is to me a phone holding device such as the flygrip … totally sorted. People should remember that the Nexus doesn’t offer eXtra storage while the Note 3 does … 64GB micro SD removable storage is a big difference. Note 3 ftw imo.

      Simply the best smartphone on the market today. Nothing comes close. Love every feature including the awesome screen I can now see in bright sunlight and a battery life that goes for two days. Fast, did I mention how fast this Note 3 is. Didn’t realize it my self until I went back to use my wife’s I phone. The Note 3 is the best… there is.

    I’ll go with Nexus 5. A show stopper for me with Note 3 is a much bigger overall dimensions that I’m not comfortable with. I have already the new Nexus 7, so I don’t need another tablet. From another hand, the extra features on the Note 3 are not need, especially the extra micro SD slot that I was bitching around, last year, since I’m considering the 32GB option on the Nexus 5. Basically, the Note 3 has more features, but the most important ones that I need are already available on the Nexus 5, plus the advantage of the pretty sweet price.
