Just swapped mine for a OnePlus 5. It's a bit bigger but very happy with it.
I had this phone since november of 2013. I had small problems: bootloop and I've already change the battery.
I really love it but it's time to get a new one! Any suggestions in the same price range?
after having this beast of a phone for almost 4years and not spending even a dollar on repairs finally it broke .the wifi doesn't turn on anymore and the macaddr is changed to something I can't even read. its almost unrepairable unless your willing to spend 200$.
the BEST phone I've ever had so far
After 4years the phone's internal memory broke and was unrepairable. Internal memory chip is vulnerable and low quality. After the sudden memory corrosion phones: camera, calling and google store stopped working making the phone unusable.
I had the N5 for two years, bought it in April 2014
It was and still is my favorite phone of all time, but it died on me out of nowhere. What happened was the damn bootloop issue, and the powerbutton issue - at the same time!
It's so frustrating, and I was so angry because I couldn't find an adequate upgrade with a good value, so I was using my wife's Xperia SP (crappy piece of junk) for over a year now. I finally decided to buy a Huawei Honor 8 now, because it's price and performance makes it the best choice for me at the moment.
Anyway, the Nexus 5 was a great phone, and its successors don't do it justice (5x is crap, 6 and 6p are overpriced and don't offer anything worth mentioning in terms of upgrades to the n5). It's a pitty that the Nexus line hasn't continued to offer great devices at low prices like it did until EOL of Nexus 5.

Yes. If you need more updates, then you need to Root your device and Flash Custom Roms.

The N5 is almost 4 years old, it won't be getting any further updates because the hardware is too old.
