Google confirms Nexus 5 production has stopped

If you want to get hold of one, better act fast

Google confirms Nexus 5 production has stopped

A Google spokesperson has confirmed to us that Nexus 5 production has stopped, warning that "once they are gone, they're gone, so we'd suggest people get them while they can".

The confirmation came after we approached Google about the red and white versions of the Nexus 5, which have been completely removed from the Google Play Store.

At present only the black version of the Nexus 5 is showing up on the Google Play Store, but at the time of writing both the 16GB and 32GB versions were out of stock.

Once they are gone, they're gone

The Nexus 5 is still available for sale on Google Play and through select retailers. However, as it looks like Nexus 5 production has stopped, there will only be limited amounts of the handset left.

Google's comments confirm our suspicions that it was planning on ending Nexus 5 production. It looks like Google might be hoping for potential Nexus 5 customers to go for the newer Nexus 6 instead.

Display

The Xiaomi Mi Max comes with a supersized 6.44-inch full HD IPS display, with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and has a pixel density of 342 ppi.

The Display is crisp and vivid, with punchy colors and good viewing angles. The brightness levels however are a bit disappointing, and that will not fare well for the device in terms of sunlight legibility.

While the display in not QHD, which is slowly becoming the norm, for the price it seems to be more than adequate. The mammoth screen size is perfect for watching movies and consuming content on the web.
