A phone sold solely due the brand built...A very bad experience with LG Nexus 5. I took this phone with lot of desire. But highly disappointed. On completion of my warranty period (i.e 1 year) immediately the phone started giving problems like sim not getting detected, battery issues etc. On visiting the LG service center, i shockingly found that the mother board of the phone has to be changed, and the cost of which would be very shocking "half the price of the phone". that means we are expected to shell out nearly 13k to 15k to repair the damn phone just after a year of buying the so called "NEXUS 5"....!!!!
And this is not only what I, in millions have faced...but all the other fellow mates present in the LG service center along with me faced an issue with this LG NEXUS 5 and that too surprisingly just after completing a year. So i dont believe that this is a co-incidence.....!!
Very disappointed with LG to manufacture such kind of hand set...and play around with consumer sentiments!....
AnonD-260735, 27 Jul 2015only if it gets android m wich is unlikely... but it all depends. I guess sony is good enough to provide updates to their phones anyways, as if now the sony xperia Z1 is better than the nexus 5
I'm using Nexus 5 for about 4-5 days.It is working nice but only issue is that the battery drains very fast and charges very slowly after updating to Android 5.1.1 Please help me to fix this problem.
THE SUNNY, 27 Jul 2015One more thing, do whatever you want ti do except breaking its hardware/watering. Software is... moreErr what about the desire eye... That's got the 801 chipset in it and theoretically higher clock speed. Same as the one plus one and now one plus two. Yes nexus 5 is a great phone.. But it isn't the most powerful.

Software issues are not at all an issue for nexus 5.
Trust me, I myself solve all software issues whenever i face with the help of available resources on xda or internet, though i am not an engineer.
Just root your phine and unlock bootloader with the help of NEXUS ROOT TOOLKIT and explore the nexus 5.
I am right now on kernel Uber, optipop rom with 2.5ghz(tweaked), GPU 533mhz, CPU undervolt (38), antutu score 48437(maximum achieved).
SOT on a 2.2ghz,GPU 533ghz and minimum brightness i get 4hrs 48 minutes.
So I ask other smartphones in this range to beat me.
Come on, hurry....!!
Yes, If you know how to tweak/play with android, then nexus 5 is full of opportunities and lots of unofficial support.
Just try it ones and go ti xda, there is an ocean of jewels for nexus 5.

AnonD-260735, 25 Jul 2015i object. android M will improve the battery life for nearly more than double!If that happens than the Z1's battery backup will also increase...
AnonD-260735, 25 Jul 2015i object. android M will improve the battery life for nearly more than double!What like lollipop was supposed to? Get real... Android M will have new features which will suck the ram and decrease battery life.
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.
AnonD-406744, 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, 23 Jul 2015Hey guys i'm from india.I wanted to buy the nexus 5 as i love it!So can anyone temme whether i... morePlease dont ever buy it. In just 1 year my nexus 5 has gone dead twice.Twice I have given it in the service center with mother board replaced!!
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...!!
AnonD-260735, 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.
