Good phone. Fast and lag free. Biggest problem is short battery life. Not sure is it just with mine. Had Nexus 4 before and it's better was noticeable better.

Your(Google) this new software is just a crap. No more useful than a bin full of waste. Phone reboots atleast 10-15 times a day, then is the turn of optimising the apps!!!wtf!! Loosing my battery in just a click with my phone switching on and off and on and so on. Google's loosing its glory. Will never gonna go for a play store device. Such a shit. If I can give you a negative rating, I ll rate you infinite times negative. Bullshit. Really disappointed.

> In reply to geolykos @ 2015-06-25 13:37 from d%RF - click to readIt's a common problem in Nexus 5, even I too had it. But the good thing was I got it resolved at local service center for just Rs. 750 (they replaced inner part of power button) and now the device is flawless. And coming to battery, being a high performing smart phone yes it consumes much battery but follow some battery saving tips (search in internet) u may conserve battery.
Bottom line is though it was released way back in 2013, it is still an outstanding phone compared to many latest flagship devices. I love Nexus 5.

Still if you face the problem may be there is something wrong with the device or may be the charger has fault. Try charging with some different charger to see how long it takes.

I've had this phone for about 18 months. Although it's a good phone I wouldn't recommend it to people.

Reason being I've had the power button bootlooping issue for the past 5 months (just out of warranty) and it can't get fixed by most repair centers except SBE, the one LG recommends, which has the worst reviews apparently. I've also know many people that had the same issue either in or out of warranty. That means it's a phone issue witch is preposterous for a phone by titans like LG & Google while they deny a fix for it.

Also the battery doesn't last at all, especially with Lollipop.

You should probably try installing official nexus 5 rom of kitkat provided by Google. Is will probably work. If you already installed that then try installing again it will work fine.
