I had this phone for about a year. Good first impression on the slick and fast performance overall, the first problem I had stubled upon was the camera startup failure, which is happening until this day. Sometimes camera doesn't start and the only way to fix it temporarily is to restart the phone. It's very tedious if you need to use the camera quickly.
Other let-down is that you cannot add external storage - microSIM cards. 16GB model Nexus 5 storage doesn't last long.
Best phone ever, works fast as a blink of an eye, no bugs, no malfunctions, battery could be better, but that's like THE ONLY flaw this phone has. I have it for 1,5 years, had NO problems with it. Can't wait for LG nexus 5 2015 this autumn, I'm expecting nothing less than perfect, because with this one I'm used to it.
the nexus 5 is a good phone but after the completion of the first year or so it starts to hang and the latest software is a useless software having a lot of bugs and pls dont buy the phone.
lg is a useless company never buy phones of the same.
Worst ever... Got so sick of all the malfunctions I paid for a new phone... Battery sucks... Camera problems all the time.. But the kicker is I did the Google restore on the new phone.... It took all the problems... Master reset on the new one and all was good... It's junk...
I have Google Nexus 5 and I'm quite satisfied so far. Good battery and I wish it would have a card slot
I got the nexus 5 back in June 2015. Since the purchase my screen has been shattered twice, costing me $280s in repairs, to only break as easily as it did the first time. Also when I charge my phone over night, I wake up the next morning to my phone almost completely dead. I'd recommend doing something about the phone. I am very unimpressed with it.
This phone was everything I wanted for about the first year I got it new then shortly after its anniversary it started restarting randomly or appearing shut off (happened to all our Nexus 5 phones and still does). Mines also had a very sluggish GPS signal allowing me to drive a few solid minutes blindly before updating us that we had been going the wrong direction or that it was no longer tracking us (the arrow sometimes stops moving despite full signal). The camera takes forever to focus (there goes the shot!). Also recently the microphone went silent and my battery life doesn't last me until lunch while running nothing in the background mostly using SMS, Maps and WhatsApp. The RAM and processor speed are adequate as is the reception but overall I would stay away from this phone. 2/5 Rating.
Sam, 30 Aug 2015I bought this today after my friend bought this on monday. overall very good phone but the pro... moreOne advantage of lollipop is you can download screen recording apps without the need to root. Also keep 4.4 whatever if you want to leave your nexus 5 vulnerable to stage fright hack. Updates are there for a reason!
Its best phone i ever had. I bought this in 2014 januuary. I didnt face hanging issue till now unlike any samsung phone.battery remains for a day and fast charging. Best option to buy
I bought this today after my friend bought this on monday. overall very good phone but the problem is i mistakenly upgraded to 5.1 and that is pathetic 4.4.1 was the best for those who haven't updated yet please don't .
Please let me know how to install flash player in nexus 5 and a, unable to install adobe flash player any alternate for this
In my opinion Nexus should release two sims mobile Phone instead of two models of single sim,
N5 is supporting otg,download ES file manager from Google play store and install. I can even use my hard disk to n5.this will solve storage issue.Battery will come around 2 to 3 years,unless there is manufacturing defect, you can use power bank for battery backup.
I bought n5 in Dec 2013,I had all the issues like reboot and miner issues, all have been rectified,now my mobile is giving best performance ,I really happy and many times I thought of changing the phone ,but I couldn't do so because it is really working great. I still suggest to buy n5 worth for money.
Light, 16 Aug 2015I got my nexus 5 in march. So its 5 months old. Lately its been acting funny. It keeps turning... moreUninstall WiFi settings and switch off and on Phone. Then install WiFi settings.this will solve.
OMG!Now there will be Android 6.0 in Android one devices and brand new LG nexus 6 and Huawei nexus 6
