The Nexus 5 is an LG-manufactured flagship phone from Google in 2013. It improves upon its predecessor, the Nexus 4, in many ways. Starting with the display — its got a 4.95-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel Full HD IPS panel covered with Gorilla Glass 3. That’s a whopping 445 PPI pixel density. It is powered by the latest-and-greatest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip grunting at 2.3 GHz with an Adreno 330 graphics chip. There’s 2GB of RAM onboard and the Nexus 5 comes with either 16 or 32GB of internal storage (as with all recent Nexus handsets, there’s no microSD card slot). Connectivity-wise, the Nexus 5 overcomes one of the shortcomings of the Nexus 4 with support for 4G (LTE) along with the latest WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 support. There’s NFC and Wireless charging built-in as well.

In the camera department, the Nexus 5 sticks to the same 8 megapixel resolution of the prior model, but adds Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). Google also touts ‘HDR+’ which takes better High Dynamic Range images and Google’s automatic image editing features. The phone also packs new sensors apart from the typical motion and light sensors; that include sensors for pressure and “hall effect”. Powering the Nexus 5 is a non-removable 2300 mAh battery. Lastly, the Nexus 5 comes with the brand new Android 4.4 KitKat which, other than feature additions, is optimised to use less resources than before. This is the high-end variant with 32GB of internal storage.
The Xperia Z is an aggressive push into the smartphone market by Sony. The Z is a well-designed Android smartphone that is basked by quality hardware. A full HD display with a resolution of 1920x1080 on a 5" full touch-screen is only the beginning of this beast. The Xperia Z is powered by a 1.5GHz Quad-core processor and is supported by 2GB of RAM. With computing power exceeding many of our desktops and notebooks, the Z would set the standards for smartphones in 2013. Facing stiff competition from Samsung Galaxy SIII / Note II and HTC's One X series, Sony has thrown the Xperia Z as its response.

Sony hasn't left any stone unturned when it comes to features and spec sheet of the Z. The phone features a 13-megapixel camera that can record full HD videos (1080p), supports Micro SD card expansion along with the 16GB of internal storage and is powered by a 2370 mAh battery. Standard communications options like WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC are inbuilt. Amazingly the Xperia Z still weighs just 146 gms and is super slim at 7.9mm. Sony sure has packed in everything it needs to give Samsung a run for its money, a good design, specs that are very much up to date for 2013 and the oomph factor that was so far missing. Not just that, Sony has upped the game by making this flagship smartphone water & dust resistant (IP55 & IP57 certification), thus making the Z a rugged yet premium smartphone on the market.
