Using Nexus 5 from past 15 days ! Quite good handy phone with great power. Changing from Dalvick to ART runtime makes battery work for long time.
To start with I was pretty much excited for the product. The Google play said the product will leave the warehouse by 19th January 2013 but it was delivered to me within 5 days which were actually 2 working days which was extremely good. But as I opened the product I got this issue of flickering of screen. I lost all my excitement. I had the product in my hand but I can't use it. The impression of Google products has degraded. Next time I'll think hundred times before ordering anything from Google Play store.
I would say the product should have gone proper quality check for both hardware and software. The product is available majorly online and not available in the retail stores easily. Had I bought it from a retail store, I would have got an immediate replacement. But this overhead of replacement due to online purchase is really not appreciable. I won't say I want my money refunded since I still want to own Google Nexus 5, but the whole persona of extremely good product has been replaced with just another mobile device from just another vendor. This wasn't expected from the Brand Nexus and the Brand Google.
I am gravely disappointed as it's easy to wait when the product is not in your hand. But much much difficult to wait for a replacement of a brand new product.

Nexus 5 is much much better then the s4 mini. Some say its even better than samsung's flagship the Galaxy s4 and Nexus 5 has a lower price. You can buy it for around 390 euros in google store or amazon

"OK Google" doesn't work if the default language is English(India) . Change it to English(US) & it should work.
i want to know about the battery life.Can it endure upto one whole day using 3g internet?
Bought the Nexus 5 a week back. Few things i would like to share about my experience with the phone.
Touch - The feather touch feel of the phone is much better than Note2 ( I was using Note2 for a year )
Camera Quality - Is OK with the 4.4.2 update. Would suggest to take pic with the help of HDR+ pictures would come much cleaner.
Battery - I think the battery is really decent.How much can we expect from 2300 mAh battery. Just make sure of changing the brightness into 'Auto' mode.
I always charge the battery 100% in the morning and after 14 - 15 hours still the battery is left with 23 -25% considering 2G to be ON through out the day.
The phone is not great as Samsung in terms of multitasking.
Please correct me if am wrong, guys who are using the phone. In Samsung you have an option to swipe to your left to call and to right to message from the call logs. In Nexus 5 we have to go back to hangouts app to send any messages.
These few were my experiences so far with the Nexus 5
hi, I m planning 2 buy a phone n kooking for fairly gud camera vd other software features, I hv 2 options nexus 5 n lenovo vibe x. please suggest
pranov, 16 Jan 2014Why the batery is low any problem in this phoneNo clue what you're talking about. My average battery time with normal usage is 26-27 hrs on 1 charge.with 3g active for more than 10 hrs
Jony, 16 Jan 2014I dnt like Nexus 5 becoz it's camera quality is very poor.
Only 8 Megapixel Camera is not suf... moreyou need to study more about camera..more megapixels does not means more quality..it depends on the type of lenses, sensors, aperture, etc..
yeah, you get bigger size of image with more pixels, but that doesn't mean that it's better..
besides, nexus 5 is a smartphone not a cameraphone..go get the lumia 1020 if you want a superior camera..
people buy the nexus 5 for it's raw power and pure android experience..the camera is not the main point of buying this..
