Anonymous, 24 Jul 2018I've been using my Google Nexus 5 for 6 years now... still works flawlessly!And how exactly you have used it for 6 years when it was released 2013?!
Go home and do some math.
I've been using my Google Nexus 5 for 6 years now... still works flawlessly!
i bought this phone on december 2013 from Japan, it replaced my Samsung Galaxy S ii, it is still alive till now and working flawlessly. I cant imagine a mobile who lived such an age.
nowadays, i am considering a new google pixel which can be as nearly durable as this great mobile.
I love my Nexus 5.
Got it in December 2013, and it was the first smartphone I had that really felt like "mine." Coming from an iPhone 4 then iPhone 5, they both really felt so restricted and that I could only do with them what Apple wanted me to.
I used my Nexus 5 full-time until July 2016 when I bought its natural successor, the Nexus 5X. I was happy with my Nexus 5X until it fell victim to the apparently-common bootloop hardware fault while I was on holiday and I bought some Huawei rubbish to replace it on short notice.
I've ditched the Huawei and am back to running my Nexus 5, resurrected from the junk drawer that it never deserved to be in. I've ordered a new battery for it, but that's the only thing as far as I can tell that's degraded at all since new. I'm running Android 7.1 courtesy of LineageOS and it's perfect. Still as snappy as it ever was. It even works with contactless Google Pay, which was years away (in Australia at least) at the time the phone was launched.
The only thing I miss is the fingerprint reader, but I can live without that for a while. I suppose it's too much to hope for that Google will go back to great hardware for a reasonable price any time soon?
great phone, father of nexus series, no bugs no any other issues in this phone, i am using from 2013. now going to upgrade with google pixel
In India, this phone is known as the iPhony 5X, and instead of running Android Marshmellow, it runs iOS 8.
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2018"Platform OS Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), upgradable to 6.0 (Marshmallow)" LOL Correc... morewhat is so funny about it? on release it had android 4.0 and now after 5 years it supports android 6.0.1 and still runs smoothly.
"Platform OS Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), upgradable to 6.0 (Marshmallow)"
Correct your specification because it looks really funny.
Got mine at in late 2014 and was my daily driver for about 2 1/2 years. Really good specs at a an unbeatable price of 350$/Â€ (back then when Google sold devices for making Android popular rather than earning money or prestige).
Really loved the display and it has a pretty good camera that still can keep up with current mid-range devices, I still think it captures image details better than my current Moto G5 Plus and features more vivid colors.
Never had any complaints about performance (Snapdragon 800 series plus 2 GB RAM are still decent hard), only battery life was a bit of an issue, never getting more than 1 1/2 days with medium usage and hardly hitting 24 hours as a worn out device now.
I also like the size which is just perfect, not sure why people were too picky about the plastic body, the white back kept up very well and it is pretty light compared to my Moto but still feels solid.
Got two major updates from Google (Kitkat to Marshmallow), sadly its support has been discontinued because Android 7/8 would have helped with performance and battery consumption for sure. Maybe there's some ports but after the geeky days I prefer stable builds over features...
I love mine... does everything I want. I have no problem with battery lasting all day. That said, I keep all unnecessary radios turned off (WiFi, data) & when I put it on the charger at night I usually have 60-70% battery left. There are times when I'd like a memory card slot but I get along fine without it.I mostly use WiFi File Transfer to get stuff to/from it which suffices. I bought mine used a while back from someone who took great care of it. Previous to that I had one on loan from my workplace for a few months which got me hooked.
AnonD-747695, 27 Mar 2018how were you able to change the battery? where/which site did you buy it from. i will like to ... more@obabarin
I purchased my replacement battery from eBay. It is an easy job and takes about ten minutes to replace.
soa, 26 Feb 2018after changing battery phone still feel new for me, very confortable and light, can't say that... morehow were you able to change the battery? where/which site did you buy it from. i will like to get a replacement battery as well
4 years and still phone is perfect in every scenario! Except from battery aging issue there is no other problem. Technically snapdragon 800 is outdated for newer OSs but still using the latest software and security patch with as smooth running as ever.Amazing great Display!
Totally loved it!
