So many people complain that 16GB isn't enough for a smartphone these days, hence why some manufacturers add Micro SD slots to their devices. Giving the consumers the chance to bulk up from 16GB to 80GB. Granted that is a fantastic step up, but who needs 80GB on a phone? If you've got that much music, likelihood is you've had to get an iPod Classic just to hold it all. If you take that many photos, likelihood is you have a digital camera with an SD jammed in it. Apps? If you have loads of large apps, likelihood is they're either intensive games or powerful tools, and if they are important to you, you probably have a tablet to enrich them.
16GB is enough if you're an average user, you'll have your fair share of music you want to listen to, couple of albums let's say that you'll swap out when your mood changes. You'll have your selfies and other important photos, and you'll have the common apps you rely on.
For the more intensive user 32GB is there for you.
But Android users really ought to make use of Google Drive. You have 15GB of space you can freely use. There's a lot of talk about how Google seem to be 'forcing' people to use it. Well that's hardly the case, most people won't even need to. But it IS there and it IS a reliable service which natively integrates with the OS. If you sort it out properly, you wont even notice the fact it's not physically stored on the phone.
odit, 17 Nov 2013Hey guys, I'm considering this phone but since this phone's battery is not replaceable, what i... moreOf course it can be changed, but the problem is the original battery drains quickly as reviewed. If you're thinking to change the battery right after you purchased it, then it's more economical to find other alternative. One of my suggestion would be galaxy win and core, or Xperia sp. Nexus 4 by LG would do as well.
Hey guys, I'm considering this phone but since this phone's battery is not replaceable, what if the battery is worn-out someday? Can you change it?

crazyuday29, 11 Nov 2013Will the model launched in USA work in India? Please advice.. I am planning to get one from USA.. Yes I own a nexus 5 bought from the U.S and its perfectly working for me
sunny3790, 12 Nov 2013which would be better option among samsung galaxy note 2 nexus 5 & LG G pro considering th... moreNexus 5 is better. Note2,G pro wont be getting further updates after 4.4(if not 4.4 atleast 4.3) will they?
Also the stock android is absolutely lag-free. I personally owned a note2 and its a real disaster for me because it used to lag so much even after the updates just because these Samsung people bloat it heavily
Kumar, 12 Nov 2013Hai...
Am planning to buy this n5 in India. Eagerly waiting for this release.
Any one can u ... moreIf you are planning to get Go ahead.
*You get in both variants of 16gb/32gb.
*If there wasnt any difference between 4.2 and 4.4 probably 4.4 wouldn't have been released. So obviously there will be differences with so many integrations and improvements in battery life, UI etc,battery life too.
*There is no FM radio on this phone.
*The camera is excellent with OIS,HRD, etc..but since I own a 36MP professional camera I really dont bother about camera in the phone
*Its really fast compared to other devices. till now I havent experienced lags or whatsoever. Obviously Nexus 5 will be the first in line to get latest android OS updates.
