Red Nexus 5 Review

Quite from some time we have seen Nexus 5 in Black and White but Red Nexus has created a sensation among users who would like to taste other vibrant colors in an era when Sony and Apply have launched their recent flagship device in many vibrant colors and Google was sticking to Black and White only.

If you have also bought a Red Nexus 5 then do let us know, do you like its Bright red color or it seems a bit odd to you like some users complained. Drop your comments below.

Thanks Corey Morreale 🙂
