Still using this phone in 2017, only draw back is the battery.
Those having auto reboot (bootloop) and suspect button issue, i suggest u all flash the official ROM from google. Clean installation may help u solve those problem, at least on mine.
Last, I'm sad google cancel Nexus line...
I bought one in 2014 from the google play store. I should mention I live in Canada, this will be important later on. After a year and two months, after the warranty expired. The phone would be in a bootloop. It would start and then load a bit and then shut off, over and over and over again. I sent it in to LG, after hours of getting in contact with the right people, it cost me $40 to send it there and they refused to send it back to me in Canada so I had to have them send it to my grandmother in Michigan and pay another $40 to ship it back. It cost me $75 to repair it and took almost a month to get it repaired and back in my hands. Only two weeks later, the power button didn't work so I had to do the fun roundabout again. It cost me another $80 in shipping, but thankfully it was covered under warranty (insert sarcastic "yeah!" here) Got it back another month later and honestly.... it just wont start at all now and I'm done with it.
Too make it better my boyfriend at the time lent me an extra Nexus 5 he had (he also had to send it in for the bootloop problem but he bought it through Bell so he could have it repaired in Canada) one day when i was charging it i smelled a burning scent and the phone had melted at the power port.
Long story short i hate this phone, I hate LG and I will never buy an LG or Nexus phone ever again. I would suggest you do the same for this phone or else you might be delving out some serious cash.
I've had my phone for almost 3 years now. I've had a few bug issues, nothing serious though, nothing software updates wouldn't fix. My power button started having some issues last september since I can't use it for screenshots anymore because it'll power down the phone, but I found a work around with a screen shot app. Still...the phone runs better than when I bought it, very smooth and fast. Highly recommend it!
Thanks to Google to own Nexus 5, Awesome cellphone, Specially phone gripping is very good, battery timing, no hanging issue.
this astonishing phone has a camera that supports RAW and can shoot low light. shutter speed, manual focus, exposure and manual ISO which is essential for mobile photography. one of the best phones I've ever had
i have installed custom rom but can anyone help me to get best of it ?
Hams, 24 Mar 2017Am a big fan of Nexus 5. used it for 3 years. No complaints at all till then. After 3 years ba... moreWell it actually came back more advanced. Now it's the Lg Nexus 5X. Best phone ever in my opinion
I'm not able to get over this Nexus 5...Just like I can't get over Windows XP Pro 32bit OS, it's the perfect developer device for me so far. Perfect size, looks and specs are live able. :-)
Am a big fan of Nexus 5. used it for 3 years. No complaints at all till then. After 3 years battery gradually went down and I bought an new mobile. I would definitely buy if it comes to market with improved specifications like 3GB RAM, camera etx
Serves me well since october 2015, The best phone ever. Unfortunatley its time to say goodbye. i have ordered the 5x and hope that it will sever me better!
Still using this phone since 2014, the only thing that sucks is the Camera
I am using this phone Nexus 5 from 2014, it is an awesome phone without any lag not even today. The Hardware of this phone is amazing and it works like charm even with 20 apps at a time. I never cleared apps from tray. The camera quality is the only one factor which is not that level. On a whole it remained as my best phone till date in market. I used to see the lag on the phones very common in every phone including flagship phones from reputed brands, but this is killer phone.
Best Nexus phone ever! I've been using this phone for 3 years since 2015. Although the camera is sucks but other than that it was great!
mrbomerang, 26 Feb 2017What is the battery timing as I am planning to buy this phone? Front camera is good or not?Iam using nexus 5 from 2015 til now there is no hanging problem battery life is good i use WiFi continuously for 6 hours battery remains 10percent on mobile networks 4 hours continues usage Phone's Hardware is great and excellent. More than 50 times phone has fallen but there is no single scratch or hardware problems. Just go for it.
