The best phone I ever used and its real power comes from its simplicity.
The pure Android feature is really amazing and truly sufficient for anyone -unless you have a specific need for another UI feature or just like the eye candy UI from other custome Android phones.
and even this have a solution other than having another phone; CyanogenMod.
Even when you need to reflash your device -I made it just for fun :); Official ROMs are publicly available, easy to apply and works like a sharm (especially if you are running a Linux PC).
Disadvantages (really don't annoy me)
1- Camera Autofocus needs to be impoved (though it was enhanced on latest update).
2- Heats up a little after the latest update.
3- Wish to have a native support for USB OTG rather than having to get 3rd party apps to compensate the lack of expandable memory (N5 has no memory card support)

Anonymous, 28 Jul 2014I just got n5 and it heat up ; is this normal with all smart phones or only this , should I re... moregot it 4 months ago and the heating starting only after the last OTA update I made; think Google will fix this soon or I'll try to downgrade to the original 4.4.2 that originally came with it or install CyanogenMod on it for security fixes.
nexus , 29 Jul 2014How is the battery life
How about the ui & performance Battery sucks
performance - awsome
camera - average
Used this phone for 5 months. It's the best phone alive since 2013. Wicked specs, new os and as the apple of Googles eye, provides timely updates. After the 4.4.4 update, the beast is now on steroids. I think we might get a rehab for this monster if the android l comes out . Really love this phone to bits :D

petkar_kp, 27 Jul 2014I want to buy a phone........here are my three options 1:htc desire 816. 2: google nex... moreI love smartphones, I purchased the Google Nexus 5 unlocked from the Google Play store and I absolutely love it!! It is on the AT&T network which is awesome... I first tried it on the T-Metro network and it was not compatible so I switched. This phone performs like a high end phone without the high end price. A lot of people complain about phone behavior but often times it's the network that the phone is attached too. My most recent past phones were the IPhone,IPhone 4 and LG Spirit. Google Nexus has them beat in my opinion hands down. I hope this helps you, happy shopping.
petkar_kp, 27 Jul 2014I want to buy a phone........here are my three options 1:htc desire 816. 2: google nex... moreNexus 5 will be the best choice. The HTC Desire is pretty outdated at this point. The Nexus 5 will give you high end specs and performance at an easy on the budget price. Not to mention the perk of having pure Android and first to get updates. The antenna on this phone is exceptional. You can get 4g in places where others have only Edge.
james79, 16 Jul 2014Hahaha - I just ditched Sony for nexus 5.Sony give buggy updates - with Bluetooth and WiFi pro... morevery true. bought the xperia m and now banging my head of wasting the money on this phone.
I just got n5 and it heat up ; is this normal with all smart phones or only this , should I replace it with Samsung s5 or note 3
petkar_kp, 27 Jul 2014I want to buy a phone........here are my three options 1:htc desire 816. 2: google nex... moreyou can go for lg google nexus 5 rather than htc desire ....although both are from google but lg google nexus 5 is that phone which will suit your budget.
In Start of July , My Nexus 5 started having Touch problem and was unusable , LG service center was 45 km away from my Town . I had tried Factory Reset but did not work , Service engineer did the same thing, but problem remained . Like every service center in India , front touch panel set for Nexus 5 was not available . it was monday and service center told me to come on saturday , but call on saturday confirmed that part didn't arrive on saturday, but on Monday part arrived , so on tuesday i went to service center and in evening i got the mobile back . Engineer complaint that their was too much Dust inside the phone ,which lead to touch problem . i was surprised about it , but i brought a amazer cover for nexus 5 to avoid such situation since post November , mobile will be out of warranty .
petkar_kp, 27 Jul 2014I want to buy a phone........here are my three options 1:htc desire 816. 2: google nex... moreNexus 5 is far better than HTC. i have heard a lot of concerns from the HTC users, initially it is really good,amazing experience, but after a while you tend to regret buying HTC. So based on the user experience, Nexus 5 is by far the best in town!
