Reviews Word on the street

Lumia 925  vs Google Nexus 5 

Meanwhile, above the display, we spot its peculiar shaped earpiece, light & proximity sensors, and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera.

What you are compromising on when comparing the Nexus 5 with the rest of the premium market is the camera and the battery life, but you get a cutting edge processor with a wonderful display.
