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...!!

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.
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... moreI've had one for over a year, It's definitely 4g capable, I use it on 4g frequently
I have a nexus 5. It's an excellent phone.
Before I bought this phone I had a LG Optimus G which was slow, not reliable, bad phone call quality and very, very bad GPS. I need a phone for Ingress to. I gave this phone to my Mom and she had problems with it as well.
Then I bought the nexus 5, which is still my current phone. Everything is very good. Except for battery life and GPS. Other than that I have no other problems.
Solution to battery life: turn of all applications and turn of brightness.
Solution to bad GPS: log on to a WiFi network.
By Christmas everyone in my family had the nexus 5 exept for my dad (go look at my post on G+). Everyone has no problems with it. Out 5 five stars: 4.5
i'm use Nexus 5 and it is amazing phone. No Lagging, very smooth, and faster. Samsung have a killer spec, but still lagging and not smoth.
Hi guys I am from India i got nexus 5 in 2 days before by exchanging my note3 I am happy to use this phone its quit comfortable in hand..I want to know this phone shows it has LTE but its not showing the 4g symbol at all it support LTE or not
