Nexus 5 Benchmark Tests

Google’s next-generation Nexus 5 smartphone is shaping up to an absolute beast. Where the current Nexus 4 model featured mid-range specs and a shockingly affordable price tag, it looks like the new model being cooked up in Google and LG’s labs will be high-end through and through. According to benchmark tests discovered by Phone Arena on the GFXBench website, the Nexus 5 will feature best-in-class graphics performance that crushes most Android rivals. In fact, the handset’s off-screen graphics performance appears to be on par with Apple’s new iPhone 5s, which crushed all Android-powered rivals in recent performance tests.

The Nexus 5 reportedly sports full HD resolution so on-screen results might trail the 5s since Google’s smartphone has far more pixels to power. Even still, the new pure Google phone is shaping up to be the handset to beat this holiday season.

According to recent reports, the Nexus 5 will launch next month featuring a Snapdragon 800 processor, a 5-inch 1080p display, a 7-band LTE radio compatible with both AT&T and T-Mobile, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, a 2,700 mAh battery and of course Android 4.4 KitKat.

Leaked videos of the phone can be seen here.
