Last week, Google unveiled its newest flagship phone, the Nexus 5, and it’s the most Google-y phone ever… and I mean that in a good way. The phone runs the latest version of Android, version 4.4 KitKat, but it also runs on a new “launcher” app that unites the phone around Google’s services. The Nexus 5 aims to give you the right information, when you want it, at your fingertips. To give you the best Google experience, the phone features the best version of Google Now, Google’s personal assistant app, built right into the core experience of the Nexus 5. The phone is always listening, which means you can say “Okay Google” at any time to send the device into voice search mode and get answers immediately. The Nexus 5 is available for purchase now through Google Play for $349 without a two year contract, as well as through Sprint, T-Mobile and other third-party vendors. If you can’t get enough Google, the Nexus 5 is the phone for you.
