The Nexus 5 Unboxed by Davide of RHR, the new power house smart phone with super clean OS and a clean simple design.

Looks like the price will be the major selling point there:
Google Nexus 5 starting at $499.99 on eBay: http://www.pricewatch.com/search?discounted=2&q=google+nexus+5&gallery=1&sortby=price
iPhone 5S is about $899 (only 5C version dips to $589): http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&Depa=0&Description=apple iphone 5&Tpk=iPhone 5
Samsung Galaxy S4 is sround $500-700, some offers are as low as $134: http://www.pricegrabber.com/electronics/cell-phones-smartphones++samsung-galaxy-s4/p-327/?form_keyword=Samsung%2BGalaxy%2BS4&rd=1&rd_type=P

…with mean that this is probably locked to some provider plan and therefore subsidized. But I have no idea about it and someone should shred some light at these practices.

BTW, if the OS is clean, simple, small and light, then it is no wonder that it outperform others 🙂

Its no plan required and not locked to a carrier, the Nexus 7 is right from my belly of the beast Google themselves and 349-399 if you want 16gb or 32gb.

It's OS is bloatware free and 100% Google only

That is understandable, that Google did not want to mess and share with anyone else concerning the OS. After all, the booting was convincingly fastest for Nexus 5, so… they did it pretty well.

Let's hope it did not get fastest by the spartan way Apple did with their Safari browser. Sure it was fast - but nothing to configure or setup as one would like... I very quickly understand, that the speed is not everything. Unless one can configure browser (phone) the way he(she) can feel like to use, then any speed won't save that.
