Hey guys i'm from india.I wanted to buy the nexus 5 as i love it!So can anyone temme whether it would be a good choice? Or should i wait for some other phone! Waiting for your reply! :)
By far "THE~BEST" smartphone I have used is Nexus-5, in terms of Performance, easy to use, Perfectly Sized, Black Se*y look, Fast updates.
Battery is not a concern for me, as I live in 21st century and electricity/powerbanks are easily available.
Camera better than many 13mp smartphones, because it has got OIS (atleast I don't need anything better).
I have used xperia z2, Sony 20mp camera is a shit, take a pic and zoom, you will get to know the amount of detail is similar to 8mp pics(whether superior auto or Manual).
In short Nexus~5 is a natural beast.
Dont look at just specifications, try to get a real life experience/user opinions and then decide which one to buy.
Shhzd amar1, 21 Jul 2015Z1... As it has a snapdragon 801 chipset and much better battery life than the nexus 5... Also... moreno it does not, it has 800 chipset like this one, and its 2.2ghz and this one is 2.3ghz
Still the best full touchscreen smartphone I've owned,,definitely the fastest. Holding out now with old couple of phones till new Nexus released. If rumours are true and we get this design with updated hardware and battery then definetly buying and brand new not second hand.
In the past I held on to Galaxy S2 due to Sammys software enhancements which I won't bother going over again but I can now replicate these as software and Devs have evolved. Therefore back then I loved HTC Nexus and Sammys Nexus S (still best stealth phone ever built) but missed Sammys own software bits so sold them. Now I can enjoy Nexus with ONLY the software I want put on.
Hope they do not go with ill fated 810 chip in smaller Nexus which is said to be 5.2 inches but hope it is bit smaller. The Nexus 5 was fast, stylish and had superb crisp screen.
GamerCS, 20 Jul 2015I own Google Nexus 5 D821(E) made in Korea. I am currently in Gurgaon where airtel has deploye... moreAirtel has deployed both TDD and FDD network in Delhi that's why you are able to see LTE
I've had this phone since December 2014, before which I had a Samsung Galaxy SII (amazing phone, served me well for nearly 3 years).
The Nexus 5 works like a charm. Apart from the below average battery life (which is being worked on with every update Android sends out) and the lack of a card slot (music lovers will understand), the phone is an absolute dream. Amazing specifications for a shockingly low price, paired with stock Android and first peek at all updates, Google's flagship (shut up Nexus 6 you aren't even a real phone) is heaven in a 5 inch package.
Amazing phone for 1.5 year, but now i got the Red led blinking and can't do anything about it ( tried everything people and google suggest on the net ) and also replaced the battery by a new one, it had no effect, still the red Led. So now i have to buy a new phone and i'll lose all my photos and stuff.
Ala'a Al-Namly, 19 Jul 2015Which better xperia z1 or nexus 5Z1... As it has a snapdragon 801 chipset and much better battery life than the nexus 5... Also it has expandable storage and a 20mp camera which is way better than that on the nexus 5...!!

Ala'a Al-Namly, 19 Jul 2015Which better xperia z1 or nexus 5motorola moto x 1st gen..is better...go for it..
I own Google Nexus 5 D821(E) made in Korea. I am currently in Gurgaon where airtel has deployed LTE. According to Airtel guys they have deployed LTE-TDD band 40(2300 Mhz) which is not supported by Nexus 5. But still i am able to see LTE in my phone and using the network with my LTE data pack. I have also tried it to switch on LTE Only to clear my doubts but phone worked with LTE as charm.
So looks like Airtel guys are lying about Airtel network they have provided in Gurgaon. Although i highly doubt it but still could it be LG LTE stack bug or hardware information i don't know correctly ???
john10, 15 Jul 2015Hi guys I am from India i got nexus 5 in 2 days before by exchanging my note3 I am happy to us... moreNEXUS 5 (821) Supports the following Bands
WCDMA: Bands 1/2/4/5/6/8
4G LTE: Bands 1/3/5/7/8/20
Three different frequency bands are used for 4G LTE in India. Band 20 (800MHz), Band 3 (1800MHz) and Band 40 (2300MHz). Band 40 is immature and old as compared to the other LTE Bands. So new handsets may not support band 40. Check your operator's band in your circle before buy. NEXUS 5 DOESN'T WORK ON BAND 40. But works on 800 and 1800MHz. Operators offered 1800MHz band in India. BHARTI AIRTEL: All 22 Circles RELIANCE Jio: All 22 Circles VODAFONE: 5 Circles - Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Karnataka and Kerala. IDEA CELLULAR: 8 Circles - Kerala, Maharashtra & Goa, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Haryana and the North East.
