Hello Nexus 5 users!
I want to buy a Nexus 5 in kimstore here in the Philippines. I am just wondering how was your experience with it? Also, is the battery really that bad even without wifi?
BTW, as I have seen, I should not force update it to Lollipop right?
Thank you very much for your response!
Is there anyway to increase the sensitivity? I want to use my phone outside while wearing gloves
I have found a brilliant new camera app on the Play Store. It is called 'Manual Camera' and it is by GD Software (be careful to get the right one - the icon is a black camera with an orange lens).
It only runs on Lollipop though. It is a paid app but well worth the low price. It is still in development e.g. No video support or front facing camera yet, but it has a lot more settings than the standard camera you get on the N5.
ST, 16 Jan 2015Lollipop Sucks..Period.who ever facing problems with lollipop update just master reset the phone after updating it and then post comments on it. Hope so you can enjoy the usage of it.
woow what a great performance under 28k it is a beessst smartphone
Do not update to lollipop. Battery life drops a lot! I charged for 9 hours and i only got 72% on lollipop. DO NOT UPDATE TO LOLLIPOP!

For once you can handle the phone without covering the bezels, but on the nexus 5 (or even my oneplus one), the speakers get totally blocked while gaming in landscape.
Finally got to hold a nexus 6. It seems a lot thinner than specs would suggest. So it's quite easy to hold. One handed use is impossible for me though as the home button etc is right at the bottom of the phone so my thumb won't stretch that far. It's just too tall. Also the position of the speakers is bad for gaming - especially racing games as my fingers actually touch them with my gaming grip. Very nice phone but not at all practical!

After weeks of negotiations, finally got 64gb fr 350$ Blk. It's worth it, same day updated to 5.0.you. Why waist 700 dollars fr N6.Will use till 8t dies. Battery still weak point. Can't be done nothing, hardware. Met a guy who bought it fr 650 dollars.
Maybe consider N10.

That option does nothing but anything rendered on the display into negative we all know how crappy that looks.
Buying nexus 5 was the worst decision of my life....stuck with the same problem of reboot...it keeps on rebooting on its own...had called google play...was promised new nexus 5 and not a refurbished one.. got courier today. Seal of the box was broken and it was a refurbished phone...there are scratches on the back panel of the phone ....seems like i have to settle with the current phone despite this being a prominent problem faced by many....TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED with google....
NO more google products for me henceforth
