Comparision Nexus 5 Vs Sony Xperia ZL

I have seen many of the people getting confused in judging the right phone between Nexus 5 and Sony Xperia ZL . So today I have decided to compare the both phones and give you the exact result. So let’s start –

sony-xperia-zl-vs-lg-nexus-5

Camera
Xperia ZL has a 13 Mega Pixel rear camera and 2 mega pixel front camera with HD quality and can take pictures with shutter speed under any lighting conditions while the Nexus 5 has only 8 mega pixels rear camera and 1.3 front camera with same HD quality and also has the same features. Except the quality, both camera functions and features are same. So Xperia ZL wins a point in this part!

Screen Display
Sony Xperia ZL has a 5 inch screen display with a bright screen and is comfortable for watching movies and videos and of course it’s a bit tricky to push into the pockets. While nexus 5 has a 4.95 inch screen which is a bit less and perfect for watching movies, videos and can also easily fit in your pockets. Again Xperia ZL wins a point in this part!!

Hardware
Xperia ZL has a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad Core processor. This combination of the Snapdragon Pro Processor and the Adreno 320 chip means you can use the phone for some serious multitasking as well as gaming and has a RAM size about 2GB. Nexus 5 has 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with Adreno 330 chip and 450 Mhz while is more fastest for multitasking and has a RAM size about 2GB.
When compared to the hardware, both have the same specs and vary a little bit which can be compromised and no one wins in this part.

Software
When we are talking about the software part, we know that both smart phones are powered by android operating systems, but xperia zl has a third party software while the nexus 5 claims to have a stock android operating system which gets the latest updates very fastly. And xperia has a 4.1 (jelly bean ) OS while Nexus 5 has a Android 4.4 (KITKAT) OS running on it.

So here, Nexus 5 gets a point.

Storages
Sony Xperia ZL has 16GB Internal memory and supports expandable memory up to 64GB, but nexus 5 doesn’t support expandable memory and is available in 8GB and 16GB variants. So at the storage part Xperia ZL gets the point.

Battery Backup
Both the phones has a 2300mAh battery backup and  supports a talk time fo 10 hours on 3G and 13 hours on 2G continuously. The standby time is 500 hrs, so it’s no one is a winner in this part.

Review’s
When we come to the reviews part, Xperia Zl has a 3.5 rating reviews all over the world and some news been spreading over the battery backup issues, except this everything is perfect in this device.
Nexus 5 claims a 4.0 rating out of 5 all over the world and none of the issues have been reported!

The price of Xperia is around 24k INR and Nexus 5 is 33K  INR which is more when compared with xperia and its specs. So my suggestion is, if you don’t have any problem going without a stock android OS then you should go with Xperia Zl and it’s the right decision at this time. So finally, we judge that Xperia has better specs, performance, backup and is also very less in price.

One Comment

  1. The specifications of the Sony Xperia ZL are better as compared to the Nexus 5, but if we consider the software – the official Kitkat OS and its regular updates on the Nexus 5 surely does make a difference in the battle. Apart from that, budget wise, the Nexus 5 is quite preferable than the Xperia ZL.
