Just got one today. This was my first phone with vanilla android and I must say that it changes my whole view/opinion I had before towards android. Its simple yet elegant and very fast. It has its flaws, precisely the camera and the battery. Built quality is pretty good though not extremely premium, it does not feel like a cheap peace of plastic. Overall I would recommend it to anyone who is considering buying it. But perhaps it not the best options for those who likes or are more comfortable using proprietary launchers (touchwiz etc) with all the added features and need a excellent camera with a long battery life.

AnonD-213945, 15 Dec 2013I am not very much tech-savvy , I just want to know Can I use Google drive and DROPBOX in N5 f... moreYou can use both of these on the Nexus 5.
Google Drive will only store certain file types and it's not very easy to use as a mass storage service. But Dropbox works as just this. The great thing with the Dropbox app is that you can set it to automatically upload new pictures every time you connect to WiFi (or mobile data - but I wouldn't recommend this unless you have a plan with unlimited data).
If you're wanting to use either of these services to increase your storage capacity, just be careful of how much data you're using if you're not on an unlimited plan. Also remember with Dropbox that you can easily increase the storage you get without having to pay extra. Once you're signed up and ready to go, the app will ask you to recommend it to friends (or use the website). For every friend you recommend that signs up for Dropbox, you get 500mb extra free storage capacity. Even get your mum or your gran signed up. They don't need to use it, they just need to sign up and you benefit from it.
