Browsing, music, texting some calls.

Thats a fake kind of glass, it fell and the screen shattered - what a waste
The phone is generally a great phone. The biggest downfall is the battery life. There was also an issue with the Lollipop but that has been resolved, at least with my phone.
This is the best non-phablet stock android google device you can get. It's light, full hd screen, lte, USB OTG which works! (my nexus 4 sadly doesn't)
overall, you cant go wrong with this phone... it's so popular that even Google brought it back after "discontinuing" it, so that has to count for something :)
with that said i'm excited to see what the 2nd gen of the Nexus 5 will be like, as its rumoured to have similar specs, but updated and a slightly bigger screen @ 5.2inches rather than 5.
that will most likely be my next upgrade from my nexus 4

Is there a way to keep what you write and " hold" what you write without before sending out ? Many times my messages were totally changed the means by the program that automatically changes the words. I love the facility of correction of words and having to double check all the time and going back making corrections is VERY IRRITATING and time consuming. Is there a way to keep the words the way I write and keep send it the way I write. SIMPLE !!! Would be faster ( faster ) thank you !!! ( am I the first one experiencing it and reacting this way ? )

If that doesn't help, just restart your phone.
