Hi everybody! Can someone please answer my question. Will the Nexus 5 work in the Philippines if it's purchased in the US? I understand that if it's bought from Google Play, the phone is unlocked but I read in a few articles that unlocked phones may be used for calls and sending text message but they may not be used for surfing the net, emailing, downloading apps, etc. Can someone please enlighten me on this matter.

Gsmarena we need comprehensive review asap@sammy:
why do you say battery is very poor? the stated specs give more than 10 days of standby time and 17 hours of talk time... that seems to be anything but poor to me...
@chaichi: some competing devices WILL get kitkat (moto X for example)... but i'm curious about your comment regarding the 'find your phone' feature... this is baked into google play services already and works on all version of android from gingerbread (2.3) up...
am i missing something here?

and by going to google.com/android/devicemanager.
You can also lock your phone, or make it ring.

But when you record videos at 1080p, it gobbles up memo... moreBeen saying that for ages its true if I go to airshow or an event or with Christmas coming up you start taking 1080vids and photos you need lots of space,,if you have your apps on then music and videos and games and documents and emails/mms/sms 32gb looks pathetic also..You don't actually get these amounts anyway of 16gb or 32gb its always less.

Though what certainly is is the value for money, and even if it carries the price of the flagship phones in your country, it's still a premium phone with lots of clever tricks to enhance its user experience.
Really confused...shall I buy this one or wait for Lumia 929?
And why GSM Arena is not posting review. Please post review so that I know what shall i do
