I also have N5 and I think it still a great phone. If you want more system updates you should take N5X or 2016 HTC N5.
KitKat -> Lolipop -> Marshmallow = Lots of updates
Maybe this phone won't get more than 2016 Android N :-(
( for Android N update maybe Cyanogenmod gonna help)
This is by far the best gadget I have ever used. But I am a bit bored of the design after two years and 5x is pretty much the same. Can't seem to like any other phone after true android awesomeness. Any suggestions for next phone?
Tried to do the latest update but battery drained out Midway. Now the phone is not turning on again after charging the battery. It keeps saying no command. What do I do to get my phone back working?
kmetek, 13 Apr 2016so that fixed your drain? just factory reset?No the factory reset fixed only the Emergency calls only problem,it didn't fix my battery draining.
i guess my battery needs to be calibrated.
i tried many times to calibrate it but didn't succed.
Front camera has some issues mainly with trusted face stops working when the issue arise.
Worst case is when you need to take a quick shot and the camera is not responding, too much time to reset.
Said that, mostly a great phone, price, weight and smooth experience so far...
Lastly, it felt down from upstairs (it has a plastic bumper case) and it passed without issue.
For battery issues, if it is draining faster, you can delete unnecessary apps....i was so fed up of its battery backup for a month.....but when i deleted unwanted apps...it is working perfectly fine and i can use it for atleast 20-24 hrs on wi-fi and 3g.....
Front camera not working after marshmallow update
After restarting works for a little time
I´ve been using my Nexus5 for 2 years now and very satisfied with it. I rooted it, but left the original os. I think It´s time to upgrade to M, because my phone is still runs 4.4.4...
Eddie, 26 Mar 2016Serious battery problems . . . drains heavily all the time . . . and almost always shows 'no s... morei have the same problem.
the battery is draining fast.
i did wiped the cashe partition and unchecked the auto scanning of wifi but still the same.
i had the ''emergency calls only'' (no service) message for 24 hour.
it was such a black day.
i did a factory reset and that fixed the problem.
i hope that Android N update Covers Nexus 5 we still need an update to fix the weak cellular network signal and the battery problem.
The Nexus 5 is, in my opinion, still one of the best phones (dated April 5, 2016). I have the iPhone 6S, the Moto X 2nd Gen, the Galaxy S4 in my arsenal, and find that the Nexus 5 just a fast (if not faster) than the new iPhone 6S, and with Marshmellow on the device, it is by far the best OS today. LG knocked this one out of the park.
nachu, 28 Mar 2016hi all ,What is better Nexus 5 or 5Xnexus 5 is much more snapier and fater than 5x and with 6.0 its battery life has been improved
lg, 28 Mar 2016F U lg, Why this POS gets 6.0 and where is the damn update for g2??Since the nexus 5 is based on the G2 it's like saying that the G2 is a POS too!
The nexus 5 was a flagship killer and it's a a pure android experience provided directly by google itself. Why the LG G2 doesn't get even marshmallow it's because it's LG related, you're lucky you're on Lollipop 5.0.2, not even the latest version of lollipop is available on that phone. I'm a happy nexus 5 owner and it's design is far prettier than LG's smartphones by far...
