It has no memory card slot simply because Google want you to use they'r cloud storage! So simple boys and girls.
pencileraser08, 01 Nov 2013Why wont google/LG release their Nexus phones on other countries?! :(
In the US they sell i... moreyes man this is big issue and their is one way to solve it by including more than one manufacturers eg. today LG is making nexus 5 and all the internals and all the units supplied are made by LG, if Motorola, Asus and Samsung (or at random any manufacturers ) tied up with google to make nexus device with all the same components so market shipment will be doubled and it'll be a pure google nexus not only LG nexus or so
it's so simple companies have to work on googles parameters , and at random any nexus 5 will be shiped to you via play store
but in reality this is not the case and all we can do is to wait for our nexus

Why wont google/LG release their Nexus phones on other countries?! :(
In the US they sell it for around $300-$400 which is equivalent to Php12,000 to Php15,000, but because they dont sell it here in the Philippines, we have to import it, blah blah blah, so now it sells at around PHP25,000 to PHP30,000 which is double the original price! :( And it takes almost a month or more for it to get here...

Crouix, 01 Nov 2013Why is the SA prices so high? I mean, if you convert it from Euro to Rands it should be mor... moreYou have to consider import duties, transportation costs, local supplier profit, etc. We always going to be screwed in Africa with technology pricing.
Rubbish battery life when used (non-standby)? Weak battery when used was my main complain about Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 with only 2300mAh will not improve the things when used in 4G(LTE) networks and having a bigger screen. On the contrary! And the fact that LG raised the standard with the 3000mAh battery included in G2 also makes the Nexus 5 battery rubbish! Very dissapointed about the weak Nexus 5 battery.
Before you complain on battery read what 4.4 is all about and how it behaves. Do you know how the layers such as Touchwiz from Samsung Sense from HTC eat your battery and the other resources of the device ? I dont think so...
I cannot wait for this phone to be available in the Netherlands. Great hardware specs.
nOoOOOooo I BOUGHT THE NEXUS 4 a month ago now i regret not waiting :(
I found nexus 4 is looking great as glass design, i was thinking if they could add extra spec to it and call it nexus 4s or what ever, but the looking to nexus 5 is not worth the upgrade and waithing.
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2013+1 great specs, instead of the battery...except the battery!
chaichi, 01 Nov 2013unbelievable specs at its price, if only it could cost 40$ more for a 3000mah battery+1

Joža, 01 Nov 2013no card slot omfg googleI know and agree but at least we get a 32GB version and in UK its 339GBP but iphone 32GB is 629GBP..Thats 300GBP difference for what? iphone 5s has cheaper chipset and got fingerprint scanner but no card slot either..I would rRather have big amount of fun with huge flexible O/S than pay another 300GBP for a closed walled garden O/S like IOS its like chalk and cheese.
In fact with Christmas coming up (if you celebrate Christmas) you can buy you and your partner a Nexus 5 OR both your children for price of 1 iphone 5s.
Even cheap plastic iphone 5c is 549GBP here in UK 210GBP more than Nexus 5,yet Nexus can be made to do anything and got the most powerfull chipset for a mobile on planet earth,G2 is only 2,26GHz quadcore.
