Looks awesome on paper and if it wasn't made by LG, i would instantly buy it.
Had such huge problems with the the lg google nexus 4 that I don't ever wanna hear about LG in this life.
Bought 2 brand new sealed in the box phones and they both had serious malfunctioning problems.If the first thought it was a factory error and I returned it, the second one that behave similary, really pointed towards what that phone was - crap.
Bluetooth disconnecting frequently, no signal for 20-30 seconds in full coverage areas, volume buttons stopped responding for good in the first phone case, proximity sensor not working after aplying the screen protector and, most important, the other party can't hear me talking during chats, 4-5 times/day and only reseting the phone made it work again.This happened within 1-2 weeks from the purchase.
I'm no troll, no brand basher and I'm just giving you my user experience with LG.THINK TWICE before buying any LG phones, regardless of how good it looks on paper.You will remember what I just wrote later if you do.
You have a good range of other phones/brands to choose from.A little bit more expensive but remember that if a product is too cheap to be true, there's a reason behind it.
Good luck, whatever your choices will be.
Please update the specs, there are (almost) official leaks out there from purported service manual:
- Screen is 4.95" (IPS TFT)
- RAM is 2GB only
- Camera is 8MP OIS (rear) and 1.3MP (front)
- Sensors: Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass, Proximity/Ambient Light, Pressure
- Micro Sim
AnonD-197114, 17 Oct 2013pls include a micro sd slot & dual stereo speakersYes, because Google will see your post here and "Oh! The internet user 'arjunptr0047' wants this and that, we better include it!"
Rumour has it that there will be 2 versions to choose from. 16gb with a 2300 Mah battery and a 32gb version with 3000Mah so stop fretting about it you'll get the bigger battery
The specifications paired with the affordability of the Nexus range on release have always been the major winner for Google, and the proposed specs for the N5 are no different. EXCEPT, Google are obviously not listening to their customers, or atleast listening to the simple ones! With the exception of the Nexus One, Google has abandoned the usage of expandable storage on the Nexus line. The company explains that it does so to avoid confusion over where to put data. Simpler for the user, simpler for developers, simple consumers! 16/32gb even with a streamlined OS is NOT enough. It is so straightforward, IF google released a nexus with expandable memory, truely setting them apart from 'Apple', they could decimate them! Why not?
del, 16 Oct 2013does this support instagram ?Yes it will support instagram, but, you have to hold the phone upside down & use the front facing camera - Hope this helps?
Yes i can't wait anymore, i want to use it now. the only thing i am worried about storage. why why why ? 16/32 GB is not enough memory nowdays in a phone, and these are the premium phone with premium features. anyway still i am waiting for the Nexus 5. please launch it soon please please
