Nexus 5 vs iPhone 5S Performance Test

After being asked to do this, figured it was about time. In this video, we’re going to run some simple side by side comparisons with the iPhone 5S and the Nexus 5 and see how they stack up against each other in things like booting up, opening apps and games, and browsing the web, all things that could contribute to you feeling your phone is faster or slower on a daily basis than another phone. Here is the video and the times it took. Just like the All the iPhones Running iOS 7 Speed Comparison Video, draw your own conclusions and let me know what you think.

There you have it. Seems the iPhone is a bit quicker but the Nexus is only a few seconds behind on most things, if that. One other thing to keep in mind is the cost of these devices off contract, though. $350 for the Nexus 5 and $650 for the iPhone 5S. Thoughts, gentlemen?
