I have been using this for almost 2 years and it still works like champ.
Power button is still on its place and works well.
Camera is just mediocre and front camera is a joke.
Apart from camera,poor battry life,tiny speaker i have absolutly no complaints.
Marshmallow runs better than nexus 5x on nexus 5.
Also this device has better chances of receiving next Android version than any other non nexus devices.
Even if google doesn't support the next update,its a nexus. There are tons of developers, cm etc that will make a custom rom for it...
A must go..if you cant afford 5x or 6p. :)
It is such a phone i had ever enjoyed
It is slim easy to move, have profile options which is cool.
I like this
Too many problems the phone processor is the only thing which is good as it works in a good speed but too many problems with the hardware first the power switch will stop working and then slowly your motherboard will die
Marshmallows 6.0.1 update will reach nexus 5 with an security update India on Dec 13th

Don't blame your phone, it's one of the apps on it that is doing that.
Among a few problems, the worst is how my phone randomly calls people from the contact list, and it will not let me stop the call. I am not talking pocket dialling. The phone can be off and lying on a table, and it just turns on and calls. Very frustrating.
My Nexus5 hardware failure failed twice in a year. First the wifi died and Google send me another one. Then within a month, the cheap plastic power button not functioning. Now I got Oneplus X, the phone is much much superior and sturdier than Nexus5 in performance, display, hardware buttons...
I use this phone for over a year now. i must say i recommend it to anyone even today with all these competition this still has the power to catch up. battery is fine for me, it works like butter, camera is awesome. i have no words. just awesome phone with latest android.
I personally took the effort to find a page where I can post a review about this piece of crap. It's an entirely useless phone with an even worse customer assistance . And if someone is buying with the name of Google please don't be fooled they won't ever help you back. It has plethora of issues and without any explanations . please if this review helps you in not buying this crap I will be at peace. Save your money and your peace in life and invest in some other high end phone .

jvs, 25 Nov 2015Is this phone have front camera good or notNo. Front camera sucks especially compared to latest phones.
Nice phone...superb hardware...well built...good picture quality... But...worst front camera...suck battery life... There is lot of other options in the market in this range....
Such a worst phone i have ever seen in this planet.worked smoothly for one year & now two of my nexus 5 are down & it keep restarting .Here after,dont decide to buy a google product any cost.
I've had my Nexus 5 for about a year now. Device is fully up to date. I run minimal apps to save battery power. I woke up this morning at 7am, unplugged my phone with a "full" charge. It's now 1:15pm and I have 9% & "Power Saver" on. What have I been doing all morning? Watching full length films perhaps? No. Listening to music for about 2 hours at school with the screen OFF, and WiFi OFF. In the last month or so since the OS update my phones been complete garbage. Which is sad because it look great and performed very well for the first year.
I wouldn't recommend this phone, unless you're really on a budget or don't use apps.
Don't waste ur money!!! Only good for Year after which it's utterly useless!! What use is a phone if it doesn't stay even with full battery??

Nexus 5 with the Marshmallow update has become a beast. It still stands out as a sensible buy with prices ranging from $200~$250. Better than One Plux X, Mi4, etc.
