Dear All, does anyone have problem during call? Voice is crystal at home, but in the crowdy street I sometimes cannot hear my mate.

Mine has a bug that makes the system use 1.2gb ram with no foreground apps running. It's quite easily fixed by switching the phone off then back on again. Also try switching the phone off after you've used your camera as that has a bug too. Have you dropped your phone recently? This can rupture battery cells and reduce battery performance.

Hello everybody, my phone works nice and flawless. However, I am having an issue during GSM conversation. In my opinion, sound is clear, but I often don't understand what is said. This is strange for me, I think problem is not mobile carrier. Does anyone have idea what is the problem? And how to be solved? Tnx

Mostly battery sucks, not getting update, or opinion of all what shud I buy this or that model. How can you answer or even give opinion on an hardware restrictions or my experience good someone bad, all about handling phone. So mostly Indians are n majority. I mean to say openely not got anything productive, but just visit site to read latest news only.

Well said! Every phone has a problem at sometime or another. That's what Forum's like this one is for; allowing users with problems to discuss it with others to find a solution.
I had a problem with the microphone on my N5 (not an uncommon fault unfortunately) where people couldn't hear what I was saying. I found a WIDGET on Google Play Store that corrected the fault and was able to share it with others here.
The widget is called 'Volume Control Widget' by Serkun if anyone else is interested. Just tap on the widget and set all the sliders to maximum. It cured my problem. One of the other good things about it is that you can set your phone on Silent in 2 steps. Tap the widget, select Silent, and it is done. Tap the widget again and set to Normal. Silent mode is one of the things missing on Lollipop, and until Google release v5.2 with a Silent update then we are left to find another solution.
I know that you can tap the Volume switch and press the Bell symbol to set the phone on Vibrate but that isn't the same as Mute. This widget is the best cure so far.

If some guys are having problems with the device and they are discussing here, let them do it!
if there is any problem in there device people should know this. that is why people use this website to get a review.
So you do not tell anyone what to do if they are having problems in there device.

Let me tell you guys, I have not faced a single problem till date.
I don't understand why anonymous guys are complaining this issue & that issue.
If there is any issue then its particularly with your handset.
Go to your nearest service centre & tell them.
Because I know & I can guarantee it is a great phone, & performance wise the best.
So, please don't try to create a negative impression of Nexus-5, I love this phone.
Only thing I don't like is the white background in the lollipop version.

Nexus 5 has a big problem with the flash light, when we just open the flash light for around 3-4 minutes then it's automatically off, and not after on until switch off the phone...
