Anonymous, 09 Nov 2013Hi! Will the Wi-Fi and other features of the Nexus 5 bought from the US work in Asia? Not, The american version of nexus 5 does not work WIFI in Asia. Man dont metter the version, WIFI work everywere.
It seems to be a great phone, I like the specs.
The price is cheap most likely because it doesn't have a memory card slot, and not sure why they would do this.
I've had lots of different phones including s4. This is the best phone I ever owned.
I'm one of the lucky owner of the Nexus 5 and it blows away everything I have seen so far on Android Phones. Coming from a now ageing and bloated Samsung S3 this phone has reconciled me with Android. Seeing my Friend's Iphone 5 and 5S i was considering switching to Apple although i don't like their premium/closed approach to customer service.
In my opinion Android 4.4 KitKat on the Nexus 5 offers a user experience as polished as on a last generation Iphone but with more screen real estate. The 1080 HD screen resolution is also fantastic, my eyes are not that good and i was still struck by how much sharper everything appeared on the screen compared to my 720 HD screen on the S3, this can also be due to the Samsung "pentile" technology. I am even surprising myself reading ebooks and looking at standard webpages from my phone without feeling the urge to run to my 27" inch desktop.
Everything runs blazingly fast and the transition animations are just pure pleasure to look at, i can't get tired of it. They are not too visible but make screen transitions just more smooth and natural. In the end this is what we want from an operating system, apart from programmers, we don't want to work with it or we don't even want to notice it's there. We just want it to allow us to do what we have to do without getting in the way.
Now on the downsides/
-the speaker is indeed too quiet and of poor quality, and when i hold my phone in landscape mode to play games (the natural way to hold the phone) I just have my fingers blocking the only available speaker but this is a trade off i'm willing to accept to have the smoothest android phone that has ever existed to this day.
-i was surprised to notice the Nexus 5 heating up when running plant vs zombies 2. I will blame this on poor optimization to Android 4.4.
-the battery life is indeed very poor, i guess having a 2.3 GHZ quadcore processor, a 4.95 inches @ 1080 resolution with a 4G LTE antenna does not bind well with a 2300 mah battery :'( and this cannot be improved since the battery is not removable. This is my biggest grief with the Nexus 5; I just wish I could use it longer before having to run to the charger.
Please say anyone i want to download youtube video in this mobile but i don't know how to. can any one tell me how to download youtube videos?
There is article says that the nexus 5 is cheap because it’s made of low quality material, is that true??? And did anyone see the drop test for the nexus 5??? You will think it’s true after you see the video test.
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2013Coming from a Note 2, I'm not too happy about the battery on the N5. Although, Nexus did a gr... moreI agree with you completely. Battery life matters the most to me. That's why I'm sticking with my RAZR Maxx and thinking of getting a Droid Maxx. I have used Sony, Samsung, HTC, Motorola, almost all and I must say among all those big guns, Motorola is the best. But then this is my personal opinion.

Poor wifi and gps signal. Average camera and battery life. I hate those on screen virtual buttons. Great cpu and gpu. Good phone if you can get it over play store, otherwise it is not worth the money. Better wait for MWC14, there will be some much better devices for similar price point.

Slayer, 09 Nov 2013Cheap because its subsidised by Google, you on the other hand are a pathetic troll....if this is cheap then if ur having a penny in ur hand then buy it......
I have a gnex and it has served me well for almost two years.One thing i love about it is it's replaceable battery. i purposely did not upgrade to nexus 4 as i found it insulting that google launched a supposed improvement to the gnex featuring an 8gig variant (n4). In addition to that, the n4 feautured a non-replaceable battery and the same screen size, so i felt a newer nexus phone is not yet necessary. I was sure to buy an N5, non-replaceable batt not withstanding, as my second phone, as google finally put out a nexus with adequate storage space, and a better screen. But now this. google wont be updating the gnex,, and they are using the TI OMAP processor as a lame excuse. I also own a nexus 7 and was contemplating on upgrading to the 2013 edition along with the n5 this coming shopping season. But now that google has abandoned the gnex.. I think im off to the iphone5c and the ipad mini, their both affordable. Or perhaps try the new windows phones and tablets. Im betting they'll support their old products with updates. Bye bye google. I had fun. but for now, you've lost your credibility to me as well as to the thousands of others who bought your nexus phones on the promise of timely updates. congratulations on the name kitkat, im sure you earned bazzillions from the candy maker.. too bad ur not willing to spend a miniscule fraction of it to support the updates for the old nexus phones.
