Google Nexus 4 vs Apple iPhone 5
Appeasing shutterbugs all around, both premier smartphones take lovely photos with their respective 8-megapixel cameras. And to tell you the truth, it’s almost difficult to gather which of the two is better, as they deliver sharp looking details and natural color reproductions with shots taken outdoors under plentiful lighting. Though, we do notice a subtle amount of saturation with the iPhone 5’s photos that add some vibrancy to its shots. However, it’s a victory for Apple’s pride and joy in low lighting conditions, seeing its shots are brighter and able to draw out more of the visuals within the view.
1080p video recording quality. Above all, we’re distracted by the Nexus 4’s soft and dull looking details, plus, the noticeable artifacting elements that diminish its overall looks. Conversely, the iPhone 5 proves its worth with its visually stronger performance.

On one hand, we’re not that blown away by the conventional looks of their music players, but they do have their unique standout aspects. To be specific, we continue to be pleased by the iPhone 5’s coverflow mode, and the 3D carousel view of the Nexus 4. Listening to the tones put out by their internal speakers, we’re not able to gravitate towards one more, as the two produce pleasant tones with minimal distortion.
No doubt, they’re both more than capable of playing high definition videos, but considering that bigger is usually better for watching, we find the Nexus 4 to be more suitable for the occasion. Moreover, there’s barely any conversion required by us to transfer 1080p videos onto the Nexus 4.
