Angel Eyes, 02 Nov 2013I would better buy Xperia ZL (at Rs.27000) than buy a mobile with 8 Mp camera, no waterproofne... morezl won't give u snapdragon 800
and 13mp camera is waste if no good sensor is present
and for u dear, msd was absent since early nexus days, its not the story of today or yesterday
I would better buy Xperia ZL (at Rs.27000) than buy a mobile with 8 Mp camera, no waterproofness and no memory card slot. This time nexus has failed to provide an android inexpensive than his rivals and sony has captured my attention in the search of one. Thank you nexus
Its amazing phone and the best phone at this price range.thanks a lot for keeping price low and in budget

Denzil, 02 Nov 2013For how long? Google stopped updates for galaxy nexus within 2 years for reasons not related t... moreGoogle actually stopped updates for Galaxy Nexus because it needed updated drivers from TI, which is basically non-existent in the smartphone scene now. The Galaxy Nexus uses a TI OMAP processor and without updated drivers from TI, it can't update Galaxy Nexus to Android 4.4
Denzil, 02 Nov 2013For how long? Google stopped updates for galaxy nexus within 2 years for reasons not related t... moreI would be happy it if they updated for at least 3 years. I mean 7 years is too much for me, and it would cost Google too much (so they wouldn't do it for so long anyway). In addition, I think most* people don't keep using the same phone after 3 years.

and see how much money is spent on updating things! but i still agree you, galaxy nexus was the point, but dnt wry xda dev will done this job 4 u
nothing new in nexus 5..
buttery backup is very bad....old

no new function in this phone...
For how long? Google stopped updates for galaxy nexus within 2 years for reasons not related to hardware because android 4.4 needs only 512 MB Ram.So what is the point in buying nexus phones? Only thing is faster updates than others.Other top branded androids will also get updates for 2 years or more and you will get more advanced features and better hardware.Google should give updates for their nexus atleast for 7 years no matter how outdated be its hardware by that time.
Good grief people.
First: SD Cards. Who needs them anymore? Slow transfer speed is a hack. you never remove it from your phone anyways. Store your shit in Dropbox or whatever when you are home and have time. SD is yesterday tech on phones and I certainly don't miss them.
Second: Battery. KITKat 4.4 has been optimized more than ever.New chipset also is more efficient
The nexus 5 has some new features that will help battery. For LTE it has envelope tracking which saves 20% battery when using LTE. For audio playback they now have audio tunneling to DSP which they claim is 50% better for audio playback.
It seems to me that the industry don't sit on the fence waiting for better battery technology, but instead optimize the software to be more efficient. Chipset is already on point with Haswell and such.
And last: Pixels aren't everything. If I would choose between 8mp that lets in more light than 12mp that lets in less light. I would go for the 8. Light is Essential for good clear pictures. ESPECIALLY on phones..
