The Samsung Galaxy S5 was unveiled a few days ago while the Galaxy Note 3 has been in the market for quite some time now. In the design department, both high-end devices are similar in more ways than one. The Galaxy Note 3 looks a little more rectangular than the Galaxy S5. Essentially, the Galaxy S5 sports a faintly bigger and stunning 5.1-inch screen display. One striking difference between the two devices is the inclusion of fingerprint scanner in the Galaxy S5 which is found at the home button of the newly launched device. Though both the devices are much similar with respect to weight and thickness, the Galaxy Note 3 is slightly larger.

Google has bowled us off the feet with its Nexus babies. With the Google Nexus 6 release buzz going strong, we rewind to the original Nexus 5 that ruled racks until sometime back. Nexus 5 is a darling. Not expecting much out of it, I unabashedly fell in love with the thin wonder. With variants of 16 and 32 GB available, the Nexus 5 came for a steal. With 2 GB RAM, the 5-incher device made for great performance due to the 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset.

Zooming into the present, the run up for the Google Nexus [+more]
