Hi! Will the Wi-Fi and other features of the Nexus 5 bought from the US work in Asia?
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.
Yes it has TV-out (Display out) via SlimPort rather than MHL. Both USB-Display but MHL, the more common USB-video out, is not compatible with the Nexus 5. You need a Slimport USB adapter.
AnonD-204234, 07 Nov 2013This phone sucks, cheap and the worst off all no SD-Card slot again ;-(Cheap because its subsidised by Google, you on the other hand are a pathetic troll....

Enthusiast, 07 Nov 2013My question is "Should I buy the phone from the States or not since it's unavailable wher... moreIf it's not available in your country, likely u can't buy from Google Play.
Unless u access via VPN to the website.
It's not available in Singapore too, I bought it through Japan Google Play.
The LTE variant is compatible in my country.
karan verma, 08 Nov 2013Does it have tv output?? It has SlimPort. Sth like MHL, but with DP instead of HDMI.
Coming from a Note 2, I'm not too happy about the battery on the N5. Although, Nexus did a great job this time with the battery usage when idling, the screen drains too much battery when on. Medium usage you will not last the whole day.
The screen is one of the best I've seen. Crystal clear and sharp which makes my Note 2 look bad. But the downside is the battery drain. If the phone has a 3,000mAH battery, it will probably last a day with this screen. 2,300mAH is just too little. Screen on + gaming, you won't last long.
The feel of the phone is really good IMO. Not plastic feel like the Galaxy phones.
I will say though that for this price, this phone is hard to beat. Add in better camera and bigger battery, you get into LG2, Z1, S4 price range. But for me, lasting a whole day is big for me so I'll be sticking with my note 2.
SEAN, 08 Nov 2013How is the battery life guys? Is 2300mAH enough for a day with browsing and gaming?Supposing half hour browsing and half-hour heavy gaming daily, then I think u should have half battery remaining, just a guess though, wait for gsmarena review
Aarvy, 08 Nov 2013hey guys im thinking to take sony xperia Z.can u people which one is best xperia Z or Nexus 5...??Xperia Z has better camera,design and battery life, everything else to the nexus five
Someone who bought this, please tell me how the battery is, I will be grateful, also how does the matte plastic feel? Can it break easily?
