The Google Nexus 5 is the first phone to ship with Android 4.4 KitKat, it’s the first member of the Nexus family to sport a 5 inch, full HD screen and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor. But just how much difference do those features make?

Today’s tech news roundup includes a tale of two videos — the first compares the Nexus 5 with every Nexus phone that came before. The result? It’s faster. A lot faster.

The second video tells a more nuanced story — when you compare Google’s new Nexus 5 phone against Google-owned Motorola’s latest flagship, the Moto X there’s a lot to like about the phone with the smaller, lower-resolution display and slower processor.

Here’s a roundup of tech news from around the web.
