I purchased my N5 about 6 months ago when it was on sale from a leading UK retailer for £240.
The first thing I did was purchase a gel case for it which cost me £2.45 (1% of the cost of the phone). The gel case came with a free screen protector which I fitted as well.
In the time I have had this phone I have dropped it down the stairs (12 steps) twice; it has fallen out of my pocket onto the road when I have got out of my car (numerous times); and I have even knocked a cup of hot coffee over onto the phone.
Despite all of my carelessness the phone looks new when I take the case off.
I can't understand why people come onto this Forum complaining that their phone screen got damaged or that the case is fragile. The moral of this story is that if you spend a lot of your money on a phone then spend just a little more (about the cost of ONE phone call), on a gel case and screen protector.

anyone pls ..let me know
overall good phone.
But you need to consider below point before buy
Its very delicate phone if you drop it from 2 feet's height you screen will get cracked and replacing a screen cost you around 9000 which is almost 30% of your phone cost.
If you are not a delicate user I will suggest you some other phone.
AnonD-147711, 17 Jul 2014nexus 5 or galaxy s4? Go for Nexus 5 if you like clean OS and no laggy software.
I have been using Nexus 5 since 7+ months now. No problem so far.
for convenience i would have it on my next semester to be more useful in my study
it would be better if you have to modulate it and add radio to the program
Manoj, 15 Jul 2014Hello Friends,
Which one to buy HTC Desire 816 or Gionee Elife E7 or Google Nexus 5
My p... moreFor the best sound quality you want to look at an HTC.
If you also want one of the most accurate displays you want too look at HTC One M7. The price difference between it and 816 is very small, but it is a much better phone for your needs
After 3 qtrs usuage, sumup, batt and wifi signal are main culprits. Never launched wth advertisement nor back up sales, LG tv's agents hardly know abc of mobile. Sd slot missing another draw back.
Just see Sammy till today has removable battery and sd card slot plus 32gb internal. Cud hav easily discontinued but on customers demand.
Next Nexus 6 in doldrums.
