Nexus 5 is the best and standard google android phone. Battery might be the issue, but performance. Nexus 5 possesses all the features supported by android. And all apps work on nexus5. Problem is android 5.1 might have bugs in it that will be resolved in next released version. You cannot blame nexus 5... When you upgrade to lollypop 5.1 it optimizes the battery life. But you might have kept your google APP voice recognition open all the times. thats y your battery is draining. Camera is not working because you might have installed some application that have programming bugs (occupy camera and then not releasing it). That is why it is not accessible to other applications and thus giving you an error.
The ui is super fast compared to the touchwiz i was stuck in for 3 years. Everything runs smooth and with good internet access it handled mmorpgs very well. The battery life is ok but you can extend it by turning airplane mode on whenever possible and having the minimum brightness setting when indoors. It's already late in the afternoon but I'm still at around 85% with moderate usage :)
Phone was too good to use until we upgraded the OS to lolipop. But now phone s very slow camera gets hanged up.Battery also we are getting for the long time as we use to get earlier.
Yup got 5.1.1 in my place too in India this morning. Yet to find the difference
Got update in India 5.1.1 yesterday. couldn't not identified any changes
After updating to lollipop the battery performance is gone to the toss. Camera stops working. When chargjng, the phone perfomrnace is very strange. Some apps doesn't work when it is charging. It was a good phone but the performance of this phone after updating to lollipop is unbearable. Google has to come up with something to put the phone working back like how it was working for KitKat.
First impressions.... Ui is lagging, scrolling is horrid... Update to 5.1.1 at your own risk.
hellsangel, 26 May 2015Did anyone receive 5.1.1 in india ?UK sorry.
Just received 5.1.1 OTA. Has anyone experienced any major bugs on this version yet?
Anonymous, 23 May 2015does that mean they consider nexus 6 a failure? if they are planning to release 2nd gen nexus 5Nexus 6 is just way too big... Also it has a battery swelling and bursting issue... Also its camera is not upto the mark and does not give value for money...!!
very poor experience
screen broke within a few weeks of purchase, had to pay 7500 INR or 125$ for repair at local LG service center. Apparently the model had a problem & in US the company replaced screens for free but us Indians are clearly not that valuable
Also battery sucks from day 1
only positive was the price, otherwise not comparable to the apples/samsungs of this world
