so nexus 5 isn't even their and we guys have managed to fill full 25 pages of comments and reviews! I've also replied few but their are many confusion in people so let's start answering one by one in a single reply! If I'm wrong (can be ) feel free to drop a reply
1) BATTERY : most of the people over here are disappointed just because of battery, and it's too normal cause 2300mAH for 5inch full HD display and Snapdragon 800 both are power hungry, but again their are rumors of another version which is 32GB with 3000mAH of battery, so if rumors came true 32GB users will be happy, but what about 16GB ?? Otherthan this google may have something totally different from software side, maybe Android 4.4 is designed in such a way to reduce battery consumption ,so that 2300mAH will be enough! After all we can just wait
2) EXPANSION : other major issue (for users) is no micro SD card slot, have you used iPhone? iPhones don't have SD card slots , everyone know that and we even know that they will not include it in future, ever wonder why?? Because micro SD card is afterall a 3rd party hardware , developed entirely by a company not related with apple, and again their are micro SD cards available in various classes ,high quality once cost more and low quality once are cheaper , cheaper micro SD cards have less data transmission speed than costly once and even the internal storage, so it can harm the stability of iPhone, so micro SD card slot is not given in an iPhone , same is the case with nexus lineup, so accept it
3) CAMERA : 8 MP camera was a great standard couple of years ago, but for flagship today 12 to 13 MP is a standard, but do pixels really change the way image should look?? No, pixels have a great contribution in making images sharper but actual player are sensor, lens, and other pinch of technology used with camera, nexus 5 is rumored to come with something called mems camera (don't know what it is ) but let's see if it makes changes, otherwise 8mp of nexus 4 is also great for me (at a price point )
4) DISPLAY : their was a comment who wrote 'at least make nexus 5 5.7 inches then only I'll buy it!' but I'll say google don't listen to this x guy! Well when Galaxy S launched many years ago and I updated my self from my Nokia 5233 to Galaxy S, it was overkill, I found myself using it comfortably after 2 weeks , and those two weeks were, huh i can't explain! Then screen size started increasing and my adoption time to those sizes also increased, 4.3 then 4.7 and now 5.0 inches are standard sizes for smartphone displays (atleast Android ) but you know because of large displays bezel size decreased (LG G2 have almost no bezels so Galaxy S5 will be edge to edge ) and it looks great when you have less bezels on your phone but it's irritating when your fingers touch the edges mistakenly and something unwanted happens, many times G2 stops scrolling while using with one hand because other fingers are touching bezels! So in my opinion 4.7 was the limit where companies could have stopped, I love my nexus 4 more than s4 because of this reason too, note series have a different story altogether, must not discussed here , but my opinion is to launch nexus 5 with 5inch AMOLED display , cause when I launch clock in day dream mode (on nexus 4) it's not whole black but Galaxy S4 google edition is, and Android have many black regions (at least upto 4.3) so increase the charm but I think it'll probably endup launching with LCD
Reply me if you have anyother questions or doubts I'll answer them
asifali, 21 Oct 2013guys im planning to buy lg nexus 5... is it resulting cell or not ?? not released yet even google will not be able to tell you the results
WHY, 21 Oct 2013Why wont they make same size top and bottom bezels oh why?? because they want to balance it with virtual keys at the bottom
Black Xero , 21 Oct 2013I am a college student and have to chose between iPhone and Android. What should I go for? And... morebro I've used both the platforms for a long time
iPhones are good undoubtedly but the problem is you're pretty limited with apple ecosystem , after using Android top dogs 4 inch display really feels smaller, it feels weird to use it (iPhone 4s and 4 are tiny in case ) iOS 7 is purely amazing but still I love my nexus 4 more than my iPhone 5, maybe my friends have different choice!! after all it depends on what do you want
taking on Android side Android is close to perfect you can make many changes, their are launchers and beautiful widgets and much much more to customize so Android is for geeks in my opinion and you also want to choose between note 3 and nexus 5 so I'm waiting for nexus 5 because I'm a clean Android lover and it'll have unlockable bootloader, so that's it nexus 5 will be my next phone
i'm somewhat agree with this guy! afterall it's flagship phone of all the android army
google shouldn't even think about price point and make it one of it's kind and globaly available
they can chose more than one company to manufracture nexus devices like, nexus 5 can be manufractured by asus, samsung, lg and others and any nexus shouldn't have logo of maker so probably it'll decrese shortage of phone, are you guys getting what i'm saying
Google should sell Nexus 5 worldwide. Since it is poor blood product of Android, many people want to have one. It is really difficult to by nexus items officially in many countries. Users must order though traders from other countries and those people are facing with guaranty issues when needed.
Hopefully Google will sell worldwide or provide global guaranty.
It shows a cost of €260, that would be smashingly affordable with such a hardware configuration, hopefully that's true.
