Google Nexus 5 (Bright Red): Unboxing & Impressions

by birtanpublished on May 23, 2021

Hey guys Mike here the Detroit Borg with a quick look at the new bright red Nexus 5 so as you know the white and black version debuted a few months ago and this red version arrives just in time for Valentine's Day now Google actually calls this bright red because it's not just red it's really vibrant red so Ren take a look at how this compares to the white version so let's go ahead and pack this and again the pricing is exactly the same as the black and white they're available in 16 and 32 gigs and of course a link will be in the description below and break out my matching box cutter here lift the

Lid and there it is bright red Nexus 5 you can see the bezel surrounds it's almost like an orange red like a fluorescent red very brand vibrant I'm not sure it's coming through here on the camera it's definitely really bright so let me set that aside for just a moment take a look at the accessories which we're pretty familiar with at this point so we have a little tray here not much little door here with our sim ejection tool first thing you see on the top we also have a quick user manual safety and warranty guide another safety and warranty guide in different languages we

Also have our micro USB charging cable pre standard stuff and our LG branded USB wall adapter and pretty much the same as we've seen with the other Nexus 5 now this will not be a full review of the Nexus 5 I've already done that so I'll post a link in the description below and as you know I did a comparison of the white and black version I no longer had the black version because I gave it away so we're just going to take a look at the white versus the red now let's go and peel off the front cover here there you go and that's it we also have a little

Label here for IMEI information I'll peel that off as well so as you can see the even color match that to red so they pull on thought into this stuff and then we have another camera lens protector right here we can peel off there you go now in terms of design this is actually very similar to the black nexus 5 but if they're using the white Nexus materials so what I mean by that is that we have the color wrapping around the edges so we have the same material on the back around the edges as opposed to what the light does which is have a panel on the back along with these glossy side pieces

Which pick up the design of the front so you have a nice wraparound effect along the front but when you're handling it you just feel this glossy plastic along the side which doesn't feel really nice in the hand it feels a little cheap but when you look at this you can see that the red bezel wraps around these side creates a really nice effect the design is really nice here the bright red against the contrasting black looks really sharp and of course you have your red earpiece which is very similar to the Nexus 5 the white as you can see now I think it looks a little better than

The red version just because the red frames the glass panel while the red earpiece come is an accent there most does a nice job sort of giving you some orientation point so you know which side is up because otherwise is completely symmetrical and you can't really tell along the back again you have your Nexus branding which is a little darker with a glossy finish you have your black camera module which does a nice job contrasting with the black along with an LED flash along the side again you have these contrasting buttons and they are ceramic so if you

Look really closely here you'll see the texture of the ceramic button looks really sharp and of course you have your sim tray which is identical to the sim tray on the next five and as you can see it is color keyed here along the right side you have your volume rocker again ceramic as well with that nice contrasting black along the top you have your headphone jack along with a microphone along the bottom you have your speaker grille and microphone along with your USB port now originally I thought they had redesigned these to be wider or larger but that may just be the

Black version so if you look at the white version and the red version side-by-side you can see that these speaker grilles look to be about the same size let me see if I can get an angle here that you can see it they look to be about the same size now my impression was that they had enlarged these because the speaker is pretty quiet but looks like there really isn't a difference a notable difference here now of course we still have NFC and wireless charging so all of those accessories will work and of course we have the Nexus 5 bumper case if you pop

That on here you can see it fits just perfectly but it does cover up the bezel except for the earpiece and as you can see it also hides the color pretty much behind this now actually my favorite design aspect of the Nexus 5 is looking head-on not necessarily looking at the back it looks nice as well but I think looking head-on is where it really shines through because we have this nice thin bezel around the black display it's nice and bright red so even that thin bezel really jumps out and frames the black display really nicely of course we

Have that read your piece to set it off so I think it looks really sharp in particular when you look at it head-on so I really like the design of course with a display on if you got a matching wallpaper I think it looks really bright and colorful too they think they've done a really nice job here matching the bright colors of the new KitKat experience on Nexus 5 along with the hardware so Valentine's Day are not a definitely big fan of the red and black color scheme I think it looks great especially with the Nexus 5 and I'm really glad that they wrapped the color

Around the edges for one thing it feels a lot nicer in the hand than the glossy finish on the white and the color kind of frames the black screen so I think it looks particularly nice so that is the Nexus 5 and right if you want to see my full review of the Nexus 5 including Android 4.4 KitKat please take a look at the description for a link to that video so what do you guys think what is your favorite color red black or white please let me know in the comments section below and that is it for this video and I'll see you again in the next one
