I had ordered it on release and got it a week after that and from then till now it has been perfect. Battery life might not be the best, in the beginning I had only 3H SoT, but after tweaking the settings alone, I am able to get around 4-5H SoT. This is on pure stock android, and without using any apps to help out. Mind you, I could increase this SoT further with the use of certain Apps or a new kernal/rom.
Stock camera is ok, but a 3rd party app easily beats it and really shows the power of the N5's camera.
Overall, the Nexus 5 is a great phone, it just takes a bit of tweaking to get it where it needs to be.
Shhzd amar1, 24 Jul 2015Okay, I was a bit wrong... Also 2.2ghz and 2.3ghz don't make much difference...!! The nexus 5 ... morei object. android M will improve the battery life for nearly more than double!

Had mine for 18 months and only the odd software bugs to report really... Battery is crap but that's to be expected with any nexus lol. Personally I'm waiting to see whether the 2015 nexus 5 version by LG rumours are true as to date there is no suitable replacement for my nexus 5.

Anonymous, 21 Jul 2015Amazing phone for 1.5 year, but now i got the Red led blinking and can't do anything about it ... moreGet your phone backed up and perform a factory reset..!! If it still doesn't help then visit a service centre and get your problem rectified...!!
Srk1, 23 Jul 2015no it does not, it has 800 chipset like this one, and its 2.2ghz and this one is 2.3ghzOkay, I was a bit wrong... Also 2.2ghz and 2.3ghz don't make much difference...!! The nexus 5 doesn't have a microSD card and has a very pathetic battery life.. That's what makes the difference...

The nexus 5 has really pathetic battery life and doesn't even have a microSD card... You can have a look at the samsung galaxy S5 which is a very brilliant phone, the xperia Z1 will also be a good buy... Also if you don't have brand preference than you may go for the oneplus one it also brilliant...
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 5Nexus 5 all the way dude.
Adil, 21 Jul 2015I am using this phone till eight months ago its best phone but after updating from 5.1 to 5.1.... morejust factory reset it. but go with the hard reset, get into recovery, delete cache partition and then factory reset.
