Got it on december 2013 (so it's going for a 4th birthday) and still running smoothly. Great phone!
After putting my original battery back, the phone looks functional. Didn't suffer a reboot for 4 Days straight. Didn't turn it off yet tho. What i suspected to be a hardware failure might just really be the battery or a loose connection somewhere.
Hopefully it will continue to work flawlessly because i will keep this phone untill it dies.
I was almost settling for a Xiaomi Mi6 for 400Â€ or an OnePlus 5 for 520Â€ then all of a sudden the nexus 5 starter to work normally. Call it fate or destiny, even my Nexus 5 knows these aren't a worthy upgrade.
The best phone I ever had. Got a couple of issue like boot looping and battery doesn't last long while using net. I've been using this phone since 3 years and I don't feel like getting another phone.
Truly the best Beast!!
AnonD-519850, 24 Jul 2017I can't believe people are complaining about not having an SD slot. Come on, all your pictures... moreSame problem happened to me rason power button stuck inside....visited service center problem solved easily.
This phone is a tank. I dropped it in the toilet and though it worked, the volume down stuck and it would only Boot in safe mode. A week later I dropped it in ice water and it sat for at least an hour till I took it out, I was camping so I didn't have rice, so I tossed it in the dirt overnight.. 2 days and some dirt and cracks later I plugged it in at home and it booted in normal mode (not safe mode) and still works fine to this day.
If it was avaible id buy that again. Mine just died after 4 years of 24/7 use. R.I.P
I can't believe people are complaining about not having an SD slot. Come on, all your pictures/videos are saved on google storage. i have the 16Gb variant. i have 12 games, Clas royale, real racing 3, dungeon hunter and other little ones.
i have many apps, my phone is rooted and i installed Nougat 7.2.1 Dark Rom.
Now i'm having a problem with the phone randomly shutting down and not turning on.
Thought it was the battery, ordered a new one and the problem persists.
It's not the bootloop problem since that occurs with the power button and he phone restarts the whole time.
My screenjust freezes, artifacts are showing and turns itself off. I really think the hardware might be the culprit. Damit
I really loved that phone and i don't want to waste 600e for a oneplus 5, since not even that one is a worthy upgrade. What a shame. i might settle with a xiaomi Mi5 for 250e for a couple of years and see if there's finally a good phone somewhere in 2019

i'm on marchmillow right now
evrey 3 minute my phone drain 1% is that normal ?
Just swapped mine for a OnePlus 5. It's a bit bigger but very happy with it.
I had this phone since november of 2013. I had small problems: bootloop and I've already change the battery.
I really love it but it's time to get a new one! Any suggestions in the same price range?
after having this beast of a phone for almost 4years and not spending even a dollar on repairs finally it broke .the wifi doesn't turn on anymore and the macaddr is changed to something I can't even read. its almost unrepairable unless your willing to spend 200$.
the BEST phone I've ever had so far
After 4years the phone's internal memory broke and was unrepairable. Internal memory chip is vulnerable and low quality. After the sudden memory corrosion phones: camera, calling and google store stopped working making the phone unusable.
I had the N5 for two years, bought it in April 2014
It was and still is my favorite phone of all time, but it died on me out of nowhere. What happened was the damn bootloop issue, and the powerbutton issue - at the same time!
It's so frustrating, and I was so angry because I couldn't find an adequate upgrade with a good value, so I was using my wife's Xperia SP (crappy piece of junk) for over a year now. I finally decided to buy a Huawei Honor 8 now, because it's price and performance makes it the best choice for me at the moment.
Anyway, the Nexus 5 was a great phone, and its successors don't do it justice (5x is crap, 6 and 6p are overpriced and don't offer anything worth mentioning in terms of upgrades to the n5). It's a pitty that the Nexus line hasn't continued to offer great devices at low prices like it did until EOL of Nexus 5.
