Using Nexus 5 for 1 month:
1- Screen is gorgeous, used nexus 4 for few months. its definately an upgrade.
2- Weight of this device is 130 Grams, Nexus 4 was 143 grams, so it really feels light in hand, thats also one of the major differences.
3- Body is nice, its way better then plastic for sure, i prefer to use covers with new mobiles, but so far i couldnt find any cover for this one, but i love the feel of its back, matte is nice.
4- Camera, not the best one, seriously the worst part about this phone is camera, not that its very bad but its not even very good, its just simple good, it will give u basic shots good, but dont expect it even close to S3, which is an older flagship. but its better then Nexus 4, much much better then nexus 4.
5- Speed is awesome, buttery smooth. no skin on top, snapdragon works like a charm.
6- battery is not bad for me, its giving me full 24 hours, constant chatting and little youtube. im suer without wifi it should give atleast 2 days.
7- Kitkat is a nice experience.
over all im satisfied with the device, although i bought it in exact same price as of Z1, and G2, but the reason i bought this is: its compact, its light, its blazingly fast,
Z1 was my first choice but, heavy and big dimension for no reason.
G2 was my second choice bu UI was too much many ppl complaining about the UI and not many reviews liking the UI...
I am happy with my decision, but i do miss a good camera on this expensive device. other then that HAPPY SHOPPING :)
AnonD-8044, 04 Dec 2013Nexus has gorilla glass 3,weighs less,better screen density(but smaller screen),bit more power... moreHey brynn, u forgot to mention the price difference of almost Rs. 13,500/- between the two.. ;-)
Confused b/w Nexus 5 & Sony ZL.
1.Nexus5 has heavy processor than ZL.
2.Nexus5 has good screen quality(IPS)than ZL.
3.And latest Android version.
But Sony ZL has:
1.13megapixel, good picture quality than nexus.
2.Good Battery backup.
3.Card slot for memory.
4.Speaker sound is good than Nexus5
And rest almost same specs....
@ LG & Google - if upgrading happens in Nexus 5, Make sure about Dolby mobile sound enhancement add on :)
AnonD-8044, 03 Dec 2013Oh for crying out loud my Nokia 6630 10 years ago got hot during calls..This thing is using GH... moreThe reason why I asked is that my previous phone was the iPhone 3GS and it never felt warm after a 5 min conversation. Nor did it feel warm after a 30 min conversation. This phone is light years ahead of the iPhone 3GS and that's why I was shocked that it already started warming up after only 5 mins. It looks like others are experiencing the same issue so it must be a LG issue.
Em, 04 Dec 2013This phone is worth every single penny. Best value for money. Specs are awesome.quality i... moreYep got to fully agree. It's a lot cheaper than what I paid for my Samsung Nexus 2years ago and huge upgrade.
Motorola G is getting rave reviews for the price here in UK also but get 16GIG version.
Mine is on way white 16gb and coming from Samsung Nexus. Time will tell if I miss Amoled display.
This phone is worth every single penny.
Best value for money.
Specs are awesome.quality is good. the elegance is also there.

You might have been using Hangouts for text messaging. Why not try Textra SMS? Am not using hangouts.

moreover the option in share.... is missing...
the software needs an update
guys, I want to buy a new phone but I'm confused to buy either Samsung S4 or LG Nexus 5. I need your opinion which one is more better for long-term usage
AnonD-190666, 03 Dec 2013i got this phone a few days back, im facing a major problem, whenever i connect it to my pc, i... moreNot sure if you are on MAC or WIN, but I am on MAC and have had no prob connecting with Android File Transfer. That is unless you have Kies installed, if so you will have to remove it before you use Android File Transfer bc they don't get along :)
AnonD-50341, 03 Dec 2013im nt sure between g2 and nexus5.slow update for G2 chnge my mind.suggest me friends.im pla... moreThat's one of them questions that's difficult to answer as they are almost same device but different.I went for Nexus for a total change as its going to be fun setting it up whereas G2 is skinned with most things already on device.I also thought about them buttons on the back and decided its hard enough holding these full touchscreen phones never mind more fiddling finding buttons.The Nexus was 150 GBP cheaper in UK and its 32GB version G2 seems only 16gb in UK.So that's my 3 reasons for Nexus but remember its a shock coming from skinned Androids.
