Nexus 5 is still the best. Nexus phones are meant to be rooted. All the problems regarding battery life, performance are resolved. I will suggest to root your Nexus 5 and install a custom rom. You will get the androids latest updates.. including Android N plus better battery life and performance. That's what matters the most :)
Unfortunately it is common for motherboards of these phones to fail. It happened to me :-(

My question is a Nexus 5 support For 4G or not?of course you can Use 4G cellular data.
you can switch to LTE mode by going to: settings/more/cellular networks/prefered network type. then set it as LTE.
If the LTE Doesn't Show up,then go to dealer then type *#*#4636#*#*
a menu will show up,click on phone information,then scroll down to "set prefered network type" and set it as LTE.
by this you'll force your phone to Switch to 4G.
i hope i helped.

Only for one more year though. Considering its two years newer than this phone it still only has 2gb ram and it lacks wireless charging and optical image stabilisation. The battery is nothing to shout about either. Basically avoid the 5X as a much better 5inch nexus is coming this year with a flagship chipset. The original nexus 5 had a flagship grade chipset and the battery while not great is actually better than with kitkat. For me the 5X is definitely one to avoid as it's performance isn't great and will only get worse.

The battery is absolutely horrible and will drain whether or not you use it, guaranteed. I made this mistake of buying the Nexus for its tempting price, but was shortly disappointed. It was a great phone, but the LG Nexus 5X is much better and fixes all the flaws of the Nexus 5X while getting support for Android Nougat and O. You can easily buy the 5X for $250 so thats quite the steal!
I have bought my nexus 5 yesterday, and i update to August update. Now, i feel my battery drains fast, which i really hate the most, i dont care the other bugs or malfunctioning issues, all i need is having a good battery life. So, please please google fix this battery issue.
Hello, I want to know if this phone is still worth to buy it. As I know Nexus 5 has a pretty bad battery, Does the marshmallow update solved the issue with battery drain? I want to buy some smartphone with normal battery and normal performance. The nexus 5 is good in performance, but battery life becomes problem. Can you give me some advise which smartphone to buy? Something with 5" on smaller display, with normal battery and camera. Also I'm not going to pay too much. Let's say, something like a budget phone(considering that nowadays Nexus 5 is pretty cheap to buy)
