This is a great phone for the price. You will not find a phone with these specs at this price. It is particularly good for gaming and processor intensive activities. These are the negatives.
1. Battery backup is a bit bad.
2. No expandable memory (Understandable since they fitted so much into it (wireless charging included)
3 No FM Radio
4. No 4g though it can give high speeds in certain bands (Not applicable everywhere)
5. The back cover is made of glass and mine shattered within 24 hours of getting it. It was not even a drop. I literally placed it on a hard surface at an angle. This is a design defect I think. It is as fragile as a soggy biscuit.
LCD is a little reflective/dim in sunlight.
On the positive side it runs the latest version of android and gets the early updates. The interface is simple and touch response is very smooth (Project Butter)
It is fast and a performance beast.
The vanilla android experience without bloatware makes it a pleasure. After having used HTC Sense and Touchwiz I actually have come to prefer the vanilla experience. Games run very smoothly and it is a super phone to use.
Easy to root and unroot. Very good for developers
The Camera is brilliant!!!
All in All Google and LG have done a great job with the phone. They should rethink the glass back for the Nexus 5 which is rumored to be an LG
Friends dont think again....Just go for it.In that range u dont get better option...Nexus are just amazing.

meeee, 15 Aug 2013Pls guys can this phone play 720p and 1080p videos smoothly ?? I want to know before I buy it.First time Android user, ain't you :-). Let's take it easy. The Nexus S handles 720p, Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4 can handle the 1080 without a problem and whit a big smile on the device.

No problem after navigating about 2 hrs and that's a battery eater, still 54% left with satellite image. When playing music for 1.5 hrs battery at 91% (not bad I would say) Both times WiFi on and 3,5G receipt.
As for 4.3 improved the battery life on both Galaxy and Nexus 4.
Been a Nexus user since the G1, this one can last it's 15 hrs without a charge.

battery life is better, camera is different from the Nexus but has very nice options. Enjoy my Nexus, like all before G1 up to Galaxy. But for sure E975 is a ... great phone.
With a theme you can turn in to a Nexus. Did that became a great experience. If choosing optimus g.
Still at present use the Nexus and loving it
