Do not forget about Google's Nexus 5. All of the talk about the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S5 certainly has the potential to make people forget about one of the best smartphones on the market.
The Nexus 5 is a sleek piece of hardware that is powered by Google's vanilla software. That's fantastic. And what makes it even better is that it comes with an extremely cheap unlocked price tag through the Google Play Store. $399 nets consumers a 16GB Nexus 5. Google's current Nexus also works with Sprint's 4G LTE network.
This is one of the best smartphones on the market and it should only get better with time as Google continues to improve it with software updates.
