12.3 mp camera? Seriously ? Somebody tell those Lg and Nexus people that we are in 2015. Every time they come up with a nexus phone there is something missing!
So I'm one of the disappointed Customers that been waiting for normal sized Nexus... Now when I'm turned off by the size of it, the SnapD 810 starting to bother me even more!
IS it really is overheating? I've tried to find the truth about it, some write that it's just BS started by Samsung since they make their own Processors... other say that only early versions heat up, and in some (HTC) it still heats(Not OVERheats tho) while in others (OnePlus Two) it's stable...
So I Don't know what to believe, some write there's a Version 2 of 810 that doesn't heats...
And now there are also rumors that SnapD 615 also Overheats?! I mean WTF... all the phones I chose from (Z9 mini, Nexus 5X, Gigaset Me/Pure) all got SnapD 810 or 615... So do I avoid both or what?
Carlos Garcia, 13 Sep 2015Crap battery as usual.LG must be really dumb.... Nexus 5 2300 Battery wasn't enough for the 5" FHD Screen.... Do they really think that extra 400 mAh would be enough, considering extra 0.2" to light up?!
Plus there's a chance it would be QHD in which case I won't even considering this phone even if it costs 99$.
Long Story is Short: LG Had to Take the Nexus 5, and upgrade Camera, Battery and the processor.... and THAT'S ALL! Maybe a little Design Tweaking adding Metal... and THAT would be the PERFECT Nexus 5X... But instead they Screw it up with this ugly Nokia wannabe....
For me, anything that is 5"+ is an oversized Phablet, not a One Hand Phone... I'm crossing this phone already for it's stupid trendy size, and I'm sure there are many customers like me.
Looking forward to Gigaset Me release...
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2015Hell NoWhy not?.. There is no competition for Apple in that form factor.. Lots of phones are getting released with 5.5 to 5.7" range..
Much better if contained only new MediaTek Helio X20 chipset !!!!
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2015It's not the most attractive design. Looks cheap.agreed!
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2015I bet you have the nexus 6And I bet you did not read the part where I said I have a N5 2013.
The cool thing is that I win and you lose the bet.
Commenters and all their whining remarks about the battery being 'just 2700mAh'. What I find more remarkably disappointing is how they seem to comment as if they've tested, tried, used or experienced Android 6.0 Marshmallow long enough on a 5" with 1080p display (or a Nexus 5X, in particular, which hasn't been outed yet) to already conclude the 2700mAh battery capacity as a disappointment. Since the Nexus 5X hasn't been released yet, much more so an in-depth review of its battery

Jus... moreThere would be a number of reasons someone would buy the N5X over the N6 such as ; preference of smaller device, preference of brand (lg vs motorola), knowing new software comes for 3 years on nexus devices means new updates longer etc
Scardrone, 10 Sep 2015distance from the screen is a great factor when considering ppi s of a screenIf you need to hold your screen right up in your face, just get glasses instead of a higher resolution phone.

Afterall, the laptops and TVs we us... moreThe 2014 N6 is a higher tier device than the N5 2015, you might want to keep this in mind. Just because something is released after something else doesn't automatically make it better, even for a Nexus device. So why get the N5 2015 and not the 2014 N6? Well, the N5 2015 will be getting more Android updates as it's released one year later, so that's what you'll be getting...and smaller screen which I personally think is an advantage, but that's my own personal taste.
I have a 2013 N5 which has 2GB RAM and I can safely say it does great for multitasking even between heavy 3D games and chat apps (no reloads 90% of the time) or browsers. What I WILL recommend you is to avoid ALL task cleaners at all times and only resort to that if the app is frozen and there's no other way to get rid of it. Android itself does a much better job at managing RAM than you/me/some other useless app.

Maybe this phone for mid/low-end?
I don't mind 2GB though, it just enough for me but 2,700mAh?
Quite acceptable, because I play light game and browse internet
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2015You DO realize the hardware in it is not a top-of-the-line SoC that can handle everything righ... moreYea, even I am not a fan of ridiculously high resolutions. Afterall, the laptops and TVs we use everyday have way less ppi, and we're never left demanding for more.
RAM-wise, well, I'm yet to use a 2 GB RAM phone, so dunno if it will be enough. I'm still using the 1st gen moto g, which struggles due to the low RAM. I'm damn frustrated.. Because it is not at all short on processing power even today. All I need is RAM (because even after clearing the recent apps; Facebook, Truecaller, WhatsApp, my work email app, Play Music, Yahoo mail, Keyboard, Google Play Services, 2-3 apps from Motorola, and a few others are still there eating up the RAM).
Launcher redraws are quite frequent. Opening more than one tab in chrome is a pain in the a$$. Cannot multi-task between more than 2 apps at a time.
So, all I want to say is, according to my usage, I don't need much processing power, but enough RAM. If I have to buy a 2GB RAM phone, won't I rather buy a Moto G 3rd gen or Xiaomi Mi 4i?
Wait a sec! Even Nexus 6 (2014) has 3GB RAM. So, definitely there is something wrong with this leak.
prakharkmr27, 10 Sep 2015I sincerely hope that this "2GB RAM" is a typo..
Even Nexus 4 had 2GB RAM, 3 yea... moreYou DO realize the hardware in it is not a top-of-the-line SoC that can handle everything right? Even if you do put 3GB in it, unless you plan to open a billion tabs in Chrome, you will just barely get any benefit what so ever for having it. The same logic was used for the screen - 1080p is just perfect for today's standards, 2k would be better but it would drain more battery AND make the phone more expensive, so why do it?
Also, even the highest-end games don't need more than 1.2GB RAM at any given time.
Keep in mind that the idea behind the Nexus line is not to give you the best of the best, it's to give you exactly what you need at the best price possible with no added BS to it.
Would I like for it to be 3GB? Yeah, of course. Will I change my mind about buying it if it's really 2GB? Nope.
Also, am I the only one thinking that it's a strange coincidence that this has a 12.XMP camera and Google Photos coincidentally gives you free storage for up to 13MP pictures and 1080p videos?
