I fail to understand why Nexus device makers are reluctant to add external storage options like memory card slots or USB OTG to their devices. Google drive / cloud storage is not feasible where data transfer costs are higher.
I'm pretty sure Nexus sales would further increase if they can add an external memory card slot to their devices.
There anyway to order it from Amazon or eBay from Egypt if it possible how much would it cost including shipping taxes?? Sorry I've never bought anything online before :)
Somebody give me some information plz :)
I'm not happy with kitkat 4.4 its not user friendly many basic option are missing from software like extract data from msg such as mob no.,you can not forward any contact number from your contact list via sms ,whether app automatically change my current location and many more bugs.Design is good n screen .battery life is not as per expectation .
when will the nexus 5 (16 gb) black will be available again in play store (india)... any idea ?

ZiyaT610, 23 Nov 2013Thanks for the info,
really appreciated. Do you know whether it is possible to use US versio... moreAs far as I know, You can use 3G without any worries. Problem is with LTE (4G) connectivity. USA version supports many 3G bands, which probably cover all 3G bands. I am not very sure about 4G. Well, I am going to use just 3G here in India, so I am buying US Edition without any worries ;) and secondly US edition supports CDMA and GSM both, so it's better to have it ;)
I would suggest you to stick to Europe edition of phone if you are looking forward for 4G

really appreciated. Do you know whether it is possible to use US version of Nexus 5 in Europe (3g and 4g included)?
acheron, 21 Nov 2013its a complete rip off in india converting 400$ to inr is approx to 25,000 max for 32gb but th... moreBuddy simple reason is in India we have huge amount taxes! secondly you will regret why you bought Sony phone.. There are many complaints I have heard! people are harassed by issues with sony phones. You won't get time to time update on any other device like you get on Nexus! and 33k is Indian price which includes Shipping + taxes. In USA you need to pay it differently! 32 GB model in USA costs 27.8k (includes shipping and taxes) and around 800 rupees extra for conversion which goes around 29k. So don't think you are paying 8k more! totally wrong calculation ! (P.S. I have bought one from USA )

Shipping (2 business days): $13.99
I don't know any other states :P I'm not from USA though ;)
Nexus devices never have had SD card slots I don't think. Or it's been a long time since they have.

you can look in the store and search if you are interested in a certain LTE band on wikipedia . here
just got the nexus 5 on the 20 nov. 1st day it got to a tmobile store
the minuses that gsm arena points out for the nexus 5 review failed to caught my eye/attention
its a amazing fast phone and i get around 30 mb sec / download on LTE.
battery seems about the same as an iphone 5... maybe a bit more..
i will give that a plus considering the network reception 2-4 bars in the area that i currently live and of course the features of the phone. amazing display , super fast processors... talk time ( amazing ).
as a google phone you get all the sweet updates of the purrr...kitkat.
the wallet works great at any convenience store practically you need to add a db card or a cc card for the app to work.
super slim and fits great in hand / pocket.
supports wireless charging. full charging time around an hour max via Qi wireless charger.
overall rating phone and network experience 4.9 out of 5 so far.
ill keep you guys posted ;)
SUDHAKAR, 22 Nov 2013No memory card slot?. This is a waste phone (including lumias which do not have memory card slot).what u need 16 and 32 gb is more then enough for phone.and this is one of the best phone ...it is out of stock ...
If I had to nitpick on one thing I dislike about Android 4.4 KitKat is that the Gallery doesn't give you the option of sizing your images to use as a wallpaper. To do so, you have to crop the image. Before you could select the area you wanted to display without cropping.
it is important to know that there is to version D820 for north america , it doesn't work on all LTE bands,and D821 for rest of the world, it is also has other bands. so both of them work on 3G but not both work on LTE in your country, check with MOBILE company to ask about LTE bands. to provide you what bands each model work contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.

Battery life in India is about the same for both. No major difference. Nexus runs fast and best for phone directory as I have more than 2600 contacts and most phones find that difficult and create lots of hassle on the HTC when u have multiple accounts logged on.
