Nexus competes with iphone - not primarily with Samsung and the rest, they keep telling us. But how is that going? They have 4 models so far, with model 5 on its way - with again; either disappointed or defiant customer-reactions and just so-and-so (not spectacular) sale-figures to go with it. Google cant afford to take chances anymore. If potential new customers want 2800-3000 mAh battery - just give them that. And why even bother with 16Gb without their SD-option? OK, skip SD but go for 32gb alone.
Nexus-fans keep telling us that nexus competes with iphone. But 4 models have been released and now we se specs for version 5 - with again; either disappointed or defiant reactions. Nexus sales havent been "spectacular" so far, so they really cant afford to take chances. Even most die-hard Nexus-fan wouldnt oppose a bigger 2800-3000 mah battery for the latest model, and why even bother with 16Gb without the SD option? 32 minimum should be the norm without SD. Yet another lost opportunity I suspect.
Animesh.kumar, 20 Oct 2013I do not mind it having a non removable battery as long as they give a 3000mAh variant in thei... moreYes,i agree with you..and that's the only thing is not good about this device.everything else are excelent
i was waiting for nexus7 tab with sim card slot,but i am disappointed with the only WiFi version with not so great fetchers,like screen resolution,full hd etc.
I do not mind it having a non removable battery as long as they give a 3000mAh variant in their 32gb model as leaks earlier showed. But its sad that those rumours were not true. 2300 mAh for 5 inch 441ppi snapdragon 800 powered phone is too small. So get ready to face battery life issues!!!
Sumeetxolt, 20 Oct 2013z1 will not get 4.4 before nexus 5 (even nexus 4) both the phones have totaly diffrent aspects... moreNon of smart phones in the world will get KitKat- except Nexus 5- All nexus devices will get it after one month later.
googaplease!, 19 Oct 20132300 mAh battery? google please!But, KitKat making consuming battery different.
It is going to be my next phone, it is awesome in everything. latest Android,fabulous graphics and processing units. New and fastest chipset. Google Rocks!!!!!
We want to purchase nexus phone but its price is too high for us. We want 100$ or 150$ mobile phone. Please do something for us.

Anonymous, 18 Oct 2013can someone tell me the advantages and disadvantages of non-memory card slot and memory card s... morememory card slots are genrally used to exapand the storage capicity of the device we have, but see iphones never have a slot to add one, cuz micro sd card's are genrally manufactured by other companies, and apple isn't sure that the performance of the iphone will reamin the same after including that chip (micro sd) , data writing speeds and reading speeds of the micro sd card can differ from actual os needs and cus unstableness (internal) , thats why apple omits micro sd and give huge memory options like 64gb version
i think google is doing the same with nexus lineup
max coitus, 19 Oct 2013hope that the battery and 8mp cam is not true coz its not proper in this kind of fone. also it... moresee nexus 4 was available at cheap price point and i wish nexus 5 goes for the same thing
so 8 mp camera is not a disspointment at all
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2013I just hope it has removable battery option, and a microSD card slot like any other phones nowadaymicro sd cards are 3rd party hardware! google don't know which companies micro sd you'll be installing and that can reduce the performance of the device (if micro sd is cheaper) so genrally flagship phones are avoided with sd cards
see iphones! !!!
kamikazi, 19 Oct 2013relax wait for phone to come and see battery testes!!that what i'm saying
keep calm and do yoga
Arnob, 19 Oct 2013love it !! Gonna buy it for sure!!
i really dont understand why the hell people want more b... morewrong!
i use my nexus 4 so heavily that i can't tell you i start it at 6 am on 100 % battery and when i come back from college and classes at 5.15 pm i need to charge the buddy again, it's not actually the fault of phone it's actually me who use regular wi-fi in college to download torrents and update apps
and genrally these kinda phones don't have user replaceble batteries (non removable backs) so think about tourists and heavy roamers! ! it's all about our taste and needs of life
my one Friend don't use internet much, and just use nexus 4 for calling (rarely) and watching time, so it lasts 3 full days for him
totaly dependent on how you use nexus 5's battery can be huge or small
keep calm and do yoga
