The Nexus 5 has kept up with the Galaxy S5 in terms of power, productivity, and design. As we switch to talking about the cameras, this one is all Samsung. The S5 boasts a 2.1-megapixel front viewing camera, which is slightly better than the Nexus 5’s 1.3-megapixel front camera. Where they differ greatly, however, is with the rear facing camera. Samsung’s whopping 16-megapixel rear facing camera on the S5 doubles that of the 8-megapixel version on the Nexus 5. The S5’s rear facing camera is also said to be able to capture 4K video, which itself puts it in a league of its own. In the Samsung Galaxy S5’s case, it happens to translate into far superior images with a greater degree of sharpness - provided you give them enough light, of course. The LG Nexus 5 LCD digitizer
camera isn’t bad by any means, and it offers real hardware stabilization. But it’s not the top-end component that we see elsewhere on the phone. For once, the part fits the price.
