After numerous problems with my Nexus 5, namely overheating to 95C Celsius, yup, you could basically boil an eg over that thing, constant shut downs and freezes. In mid game like clash royale it would simply reboot itself. Then 10 attempts of restoring my phone to original without shutting down the phone at the 10th i was successfull.
But Sim card wasn't recognized and Wifi signal was shit, always failing.
Phone shat down several times too.
So i decided it was tie to part ways and had to upgrade to a new one.
Namely a OnePlus 5, ordered it on the 4th/09/2017 and recieved it today, 2 days for a livery for Portugal, costs me 499.99Â€ and i don't regret it at all.
What an awesome phone.
Even tho i still love my nexus 5, i really do i had to upgrade because of the constant problems. One thing's for sure, i wouldn't upgrade if the phone was fully working without any issues. The nexus 5 is speedy as fak and it has everything what it needs to be a good phone.
Ofc the onelpus 5 is another level, so far, loving the new features

james 2911, 23 Aug 2017Finally upgraded. Got an HTC 10. Runs beautifully , nice battery life, better screen, and the ... moreYes, pixel is expensive and audio quality is not that good but in performance it is way ahead than htc 10 and in camera department also pixel is better
Finally upgraded. Got an HTC 10. Runs beautifully , nice battery life, better screen, and the audio is incredible as it uses separate dac for the headphones...i thought my nexus 5 was impressive in the headphones but HTC 10 takes it to another level. Not had any problems with bloatware after disabling. Like it says on a YouTube video, the best phone you're not buying. Still got my nexus 5 and OK the battery is poor but it always was and it's no worse than when I got it. Glad I didn't get the google pixel as I only paid £285 for this (unlocked version too) and the pixel would have cost £400+ and for that I would have worse audio, worse looks and worse screen on the 5inch version plus I think the 5incher only has 3gb ram so really I've saved money and got a better phone in my eyes. Yes the pixel has the 821 over the 820 but it's only marginally better.

Suman, 30 Jul 2017Same problem happened to me rason power button stuck inside....visited service center problem ... morei don't think its the bootloop problem nor the power button. Since my screen showed artifacts and after 3 seconds it shat down, impossible to start it. the only way was to power it on with the charger. My phone crashed, not freeze. Like a BSOD on windows.
Explain me what your nexus 5 had please
Got it on december 2013 (so it's going for a 4th birthday) and still running smoothly. Great phone!
After putting my original battery back, the phone looks functional. Didn't suffer a reboot for 4 Days straight. Didn't turn it off yet tho. What i suspected to be a hardware failure might just really be the battery or a loose connection somewhere.
Hopefully it will continue to work flawlessly because i will keep this phone untill it dies.
I was almost settling for a Xiaomi Mi6 for 400Â€ or an OnePlus 5 for 520Â€ then all of a sudden the nexus 5 starter to work normally. Call it fate or destiny, even my Nexus 5 knows these aren't a worthy upgrade.
The best phone I ever had. Got a couple of issue like boot looping and battery doesn't last long while using net. I've been using this phone since 3 years and I don't feel like getting another phone.
Truly the best Beast!!
MarcioReis, 24 Jul 2017I can't believe people are complaining about not having an SD slot. Come on, all your pictures... moreSame problem happened to me rason power button stuck inside....visited service center problem solved easily.
This phone is a tank. I dropped it in the toilet and though it worked, the volume down stuck and it would only Boot in safe mode. A week later I dropped it in ice water and it sat for at least an hour till I took it out, I was camping so I didn't have rice, so I tossed it in the dirt overnight.. 2 days and some dirt and cracks later I plugged it in at home and it booted in normal mode (not safe mode) and still works fine to this day.
If it was avaible id buy that again. Mine just died after 4 years of 24/7 use. R.I.P
I can't believe people are complaining about not having an SD slot. Come on, all your pictures/videos are saved on google storage. i have the 16Gb variant. i have 12 games, Clas royale, real racing 3, dungeon hunter and other little ones.
i have many apps, my phone is rooted and i installed Nougat 7.2.1 Dark Rom.
Now i'm having a problem with the phone randomly shutting down and not turning on.
Thought it was the battery, ordered a new one and the problem persists.
It's not the bootloop problem since that occurs with the power button and he phone restarts the whole time.
My screenjust freezes, artifacts are showing and turns itself off. I really think the hardware might be the culprit. Damit
I really loved that phone and i don't want to waste 600e for a oneplus 5, since not even that one is a worthy upgrade. What a shame. i might settle with a xiaomi Mi5 for 250e for a couple of years and see if there's finally a good phone somewhere in 2019
dipey, 27 Apr 2017hello Mango :).. i m using same LG nexus 5, and have reboot problem like phone gets suddenly s... morelike mention earlier, try full flash and install official ROM from Google web. it might help.
