Both have the top SoC at their release time.
Both lack more storage. Nexus 4's top storage option was 16 and lacked LTE, which most flagships had.

Nexus 4 was nice,better or equal than other 2012 flagships and simultaneously much cheaper.

Nexus 5 is ugly,far from flagships and on top of that too expensive.

Google please hurry up. Or I may have to compromise and end up buying some other device.

Google gotta be really careful in making such big expectations, in most cases it backfires.

Note 3 is huge and only 79.2!

If the proportion of the pictures leaked are correct it is aprox 131x68x9 mm

Even if big G announces it before the end of this month, we'll still have to wait another 2 weeks before its actually available...Just like last year. My guess is that I wont have my N5 until 11/18
