Bragging rights: 5 Android KitKat features exclusive to the Nexus 5

Well, some of those exclusive functions are made available to some other handsets with custom 4.4 ROMs out there, thanks to the modding crowd, but not the whole set at once, as that would entail certain hardware requirements that the Nexus 5 is in possession of.

I don't really like the sound of 'exclusivity' in an Android device.

It does. The feature is included, but other outings don't have the tech to use it. Android can use GSM radios. My Verizon phone doesn't have GSM. That's not leaving it off my phone. It's not like Siri, which could and did run fine on older iPhones, but Apple chose not to allow it.

Wait are the full screen wallpapers only on the nexus 5 not nexus 4 7 etc? And is it confirmed the other nexus devices won't get the "OK Google" feature?

This post is about exclusives to the Nexus 5 so why would software features be listed as exclusives? The official rom for the Nexus 4 or Nexus 7 (2013) aren't out yet so we don't know if HDR+ or full screen wallpapers are exclusive to Nexus 5.
