Its been 2 weeks since I got it from Amazon and its been brilliant. First of all, the battery is amazing. With normal 3g IM messaging, browsing, calIs its showing 45% battery (18 hours after charging). Its super smooth. No lag. Not a split second. The display is NOT WASHED OUT as you might have heard from critics. Its got very pleasant and comfortable to look at compared to the super bright and high contrast and over sharp Samsung and LG G2. The phone feels quite solid but I have got a case for it because I want to keep it flawless. Its a bit big even for my large hands but very manageable with two hands. The touch is ultra responsive. Ceramic buttons are solid and crisp. The sound quality with the stock player is very good. Speakers are not very loud but loud enough for my flats kitchen at least (its not a surround sound system, you know). All apps work fine. I got one crash but that was when I had downloaded some 3rd party theme. Just one though. I have solo launcher installed and it works flawlessly. Calling is loud and clear but a bit more low frequency addition would be nice. The stock camera is slow to focus though. I got camera360 instead and the photos are brilliant. Overall an amazing phone and worth every penny.

AnonD-263673, 14 May 2014am having confusion whether to buy nexus 5 or xperia z1..kindly review me abt thos.. Even though the Z1 have some nicer features than the Nexus 5, in my opinion they are not worth the price diferrence, and as a Sony Xperia user, I can tell you that Sony abandons supports for their phones quicker than its competitors, as a matter of fact I think they already told they'd leave the Z1 in the next upgrade, so, consider this, because with the Nexus 5 you have a powerful smartphone with direct support from Google, and support for a long time...Hope this will help you
Got a Nexsus 5 two months ago a started facing a problem after 2 weeks. Everytime I open the camera it doesn't work and "cannot connect to camera" pops up. Has anyone faced this problem or know a solution to it?
AnonD-263673, 14 May 2014am having confusion whether to buy nexus 5 or xperia z1..kindly review me abt thos.. Z1 scores more in benchmarks but n5 is just as fast in reality. If micro SD and better camera and looks is a must then go for z1. If you hate bloatware, want to be the first to get updates and want an absolute bargain go for n5 - suggest 32gb version if you want more storage space.
survivor, 14 May 2014Dude believe me go with nexus cuz my bro has z1 and he regrets not buying nexus5am having confusion whether to buy nexus 5 or xperia z1..kindly review me abt thos..
amendra, 14 May 2014How is the battery ...???? How much time it to recharge....???About 1hour 30mins from 2percent to 100 percent. Recharges very fast from 20 percent to 95 percent though.
Samborac, 14 May 2014Camera and battery life are the bad site of this phoneCamera is fast and I can think of a lot worse 8mp shooters - xperia sp is one.

I tried two notification light apps - 'Light manager' & 'Light Flow'. I had problems with 'Light Manager' where the notification light would not clear even after I had read the waiting message or after clearing the missed call; it kept on flashing. Each time I had to restart my phone to clear it. 'Light Flow' works perfectly on my N5 however. Some users are complaining that it doesn't work on the N5 but I haven't had any problems. I have set the LED to flash Red for missed calls, Green for missed texts, Cyan for Twitter, Yellow for Gmail, and Purple for Whatsapp; and they all work fine. If the light works with a 3rd party app then it should work without. Just poor programming by Google I suppose.

Just had a missed call - notification light not working - I've read about the light and people are saying sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Its about time the problem was fixed.
Freefaller™, 12 May 2014@ james79 I have a Nexus 5 and the notification light does NOT work without a 3rd party app... moreRecently Google admitted, notification light dors not work, even when ticked in display, so 4.4.3 update maybe this month will definately remedy, plus bla bla bla, as usually said. This is fr all public to note.
AnonD-43136, 13 May 2014Immersive mode - basically full screen mode where you can get notification bar to disappear. @james79
There is an app named 'Immersive Full-Screen Mode' on the Play Store. I can't add a link because GSMArena wont allow links beginning with https://
There is a warning on the page though:
IMPORTANT: because of an Android limitation, the keyboard will not work while in immersive mode.
So you might be unlucky there.
