This is 24 Hour Nexus 5 Review , I have upgraded from Samsung Galaxy S II , and Picked up Nexus 5 from LG Dealer in India for 29500 INR ( Ya i know its high but due to shortage got only Rs 500 discount over MRP ) .
Display : HD Display is Great and with little Brightness works well in outdoor to , Indoor you can set it to zero and it still has the wow factor , big upgrade for me from SII .
Android 4.4 Kitkat : Nice and smooth , No lag whatsoever till now , Google has made some changes to settings and overall looks and features.
Looks: BackPanel looks ( Mine is BLack ) Not so good in Pictures but in reality it has its own Premium feel and comfortable to hold , Good Grip to .
Camera : I did not find any lag in Camera launcher nor any extra time for focusing , i have taken around 40 images and all have been satisfactory , HDR+ images are awesome .
Battery : i was worried about the Battery due to negative reviews by many and i tested the Battery and it worked for 14.09 with 12% left . I have used wifi for 7 hours on it , 20 App downloads , 40 minutes of voice call, 20 minutes of games and 20 minutes of 3G usage . I am satisfied with Battery , in between i traveled 60 km due to work. i have attached snapshot of battery so that you guys can check usage .
Loudspeakers : Speakers are not loud enough but music in earphones are good and even sound for voice calls are good , only problem is notifications sound are not loud, Big downer for me hope it can be fixed through software update in future .
Indian users Note : I got Lg earphones with the set and Data Mode is set in LTE mode so change it to 3g or 2g to use data mode in India .

winjilcom, 27 Nov 2013Dude, My Galaxy S4 i-337 will eat an Lg Nexus 5 for breakfast.Nexus 5 vs Galaxy S4 benchmark comparison. Nexus 5 has a white wash win over Galaxy S4. Here it is:
Another one here @
Dont waste the money with Galaxy S4.
winjilcom, 27 Nov 2013Dude, My Galaxy S4 i-337 will eat an Lg Nexus 5 for breakfast.No it wont Nexus 5 has a faster processor.Where as Galaxy S4 with an Octa core CPU its actually a Quad core CPU in real world mean no application can access all 8 core of the S4. S4's 8 core CPU is splited into 2 parts. 4 high performance core and 4 low power core. Demanding 3d games uses that 4 high performance core and normal low duty apps like net browsing, music playback access the low power core . No application can access all the 8 core simultaneously. Google that if any doubts regrading the CPU of s4.
Anther advantage of Nexus 5 is the stock Android 4.4 KitKat and will receive all the future updates earlier than any other manufacture because Nexus brand is powered by Google itself
