Absolutely do not buy a Nexus 5, new or used, from anyone.
Mine has a fatal battery death issue, and when it restarts it goes into an "Optimizing Apps" loop that takes 8 to 10 minutes to complete.
This has been posted about all over the Nexus 5 support forum and Google refuses to provide any useful answers or solutions.
This is deplorable.
drago romeo, 03 Jun 2015nexus 5 and honor 6 wgich one is better? click 'compare' on the left side. honor has better battery and sd card slot. nexus 5 will always have latest up to date android os. what is important to you?
I waited a week before I updated my N5 to Android v5.1.1 I always clean out the cache partition before installing so that there aren't any old files left behind and the phone has performed perfectly with the new Firmware. The battery lasts longer than before, every built in app runs faultlessly, and all 3rd party apps behave as well.
ykr, 01 Jun 2015I would like to buy a smartphone. Confused with Nexus 5 and Apple iphone 5s. Could you people ... moreIf you prefer a bigger phone, then go for Nexus 5, but if you prefer iOS then go for iPhone 5s. For me, they are both best with their own features. And it will depend on the user.

zahid abbas, 29 May 2015I recently bought nexus 5. Its really good phone with good processing. Everything works. But t... moreIf any phone heats up, it effects the performance of the phone... The phone as it heats up starts losing performance... This is the main reason for the slow down of old phones... Try to keep your phone in normal temp... If its heated up critically then better stop for sometime and let it become normal...
Beast of phone.
