    So the Nexus 4 had a greater PPI than the 2012 Nexus 7, and it's also faster with better specs. The Nexus 5 has 445 freakin' PPI and the 2013 Nexus 7 only 323. WTF? Does the Nexus 5 have better specs than the Nexus 7, too? It makes more sense to give the device with a bigger screen a higher PPI.

    Also, I've always wondered... why are the Nexus phones so much more expensive?

    They use standard resolutions, so the tablets will always have a lower PPI than the phones. Cellular radios are part of the reason for the price gap. There is a $120 price gap between the 16 GB Nexus 7 and the 16 GB Nexus 5, but there is only a $50 difference between the LTE Nexus 7 32 GB and the Nexus 5 32 GB. The other part of the price difference is miniaturization. Smaller parts cost more and it is more difficult to engineer a smaller device than a larger one.

    Nexus phones are quite reasonably priced compared to other similar unlocked smartphones.
