ItsMyChoice, 30 Sep 2013#Failfail? why? did you really expect a G2 at half the price?
Wow diz suxs. You're betta off buying LG G2, root it and install pure google. LG G2 with pure google makes the Nexus 5 a pre mature.
Awesome. 4.4 KitKat is gonna bring 64-bit goodness to Android. Haha apple. Nexus 5 should be at least 4 gb RAM though, so not sure why Google is being mean there.
Manik, 30 Sep 2013Next gen Flagship with that battery ..... I wonder what google is thinking. If Kitkat have so ... moreForgot to add ..
at least 32 gig of storage , if not expandable which is most likely the case.
This is a major disappointment. I'm a current N4 user, and while generally happy with the phone, battery life has been a bit of a let down for me. If the N5 has such a small internal battery I think I will be looking else where ... maybe to Apple ...
I personally feel after so much HYPE that about NEXUS 5 is giving some discouraging news to us because of the Following:
1. Battery Life is the biggest Downer as thought of 3000 mAh but it is 2300 mAh
2. RAM of 2 GB. Where it was thought of RAM 3 GB
3. Camera of 8 MP that's which was thought of 13 MP
As we all know that Android eats lots of battery so meaning for business users.
Next gen Flagship with that battery ..... I wonder what google is thinking. If Kitkat have so called "Projectrunner" then also this amount of battery for 5" screen is too less.
My Dream Specs for Nexus or any Device :
1. 5" or 5.2" IGZO display (Coz will have min bezel which looks sxc and gives more screen practically)
2. Snapdragon 800
3. 2GB or 3 GB ram
4. 8MP or 13MP Camera
5. Great built quality(No matter if it is plastic atleast it should have a robust built)
Main point of having a Snapdragon 800 is to manipulate 4K (recording / playing) videos. Unless the 8MP snapper supports this resolution, I don't see the point of having such a beefy cpu inside a Nexus phone 16gb.. It only raises the manufacturing costs, heat and battery draining.
I don't think either a difference can be seen for most of tasks excepted benchmarks and Asphalt 8. But let's wait and see final results.
It sounds like a good phone with the specs listed here, particularly when one considers Nexus phones are usually half the price of the competition.
It is a shame that folks pick on the camera (and to an extent the battery) and moan. Don't forget Google doesn't make this phone to promote the phone, they make it to promote their Android software, so hardware is secondary to the software.
To get as many phones into customers' hands as possible, Google need to keep costs down. The camera is the obvious starting point.
It would be lovely to have the top specs at half, or less than half than the price of competing phones, but be we need to be realistic too!
I think it'll be a good phone and look forward to seeing it when it is launched and then made available.
Nexus devices are all about software. If you want jampacked hardware buy a Galaxy.
I will probably buy Optimus G pro..
the only advantage of this pone is stock android and fast updates.. everything else is just bad compared to G pro.
At this rate, the nexus 7 2016 will be treated as a phone (GTab3 7" is already available with voice support).
Shave off 5mm on both measurements and i'll buy it. Galaxy S2 dimensions are the biggest I accept in a phone (currently using Razr I, because M is not available in EU).
Where are the 4" quads? When will this size war end? (in reference to MHz wars)
