[How to] Improve the Camera Quality of LG Nexus 5

Nexus 5 is the latest device in the Nexus series with all the high end specifications. It is also the first device to have Android 4.4 KitKat OS. It has a 4.95″ True HD IPS Plus display.

Although Nexus 5 is a great device, it doesn’t have the best camera.

Also, recorded audio has been improved, and according to developer it has no noise cancellation disturbance. If you want to try out this mod, follow the instructions given below.
