after 5.1.1 Nexus 5 works without issues.
On topic the phone is indeed kind of ugly
Don't know who would go in for the nexus line up again considering a lot of the nexus 5 and 6 got bricked after the lollipop update. That was ok, but unlike Apple, google just kept quiet and ignored the numerous petitions online asking for a solution or free repair. I was one of the victims and service centres quoted 200 $ for the replacing of the main board for a problem caused by google and a faulty update.
Shame on them for deserting the people. I am an Android user but I would say Apple atleast takes care of their buyers

I am sure this nexus will be great , because it is made by LG . After the master piece NEXUS 5.
The mountain behind the Nexus. It is too much. At least make it square if the bump is a must.
This looks to be what the LG G4 never was. The G4 should have had a 5.2" screen, 5.5" is just too big and hurts their sales. If the battery has around 3200 mAh it will be a winner.
JonHolstein, 17 Aug 2015The looks arent that great.
But on the other hand, Nexus devices are niche devices, and googl... moreThe Nexus line was originally intended for developers, so a showcase for the current state of the art in Android and a reference device for the OS and its features. For an ordinary user it provides android without skins or carrier bloat and with OS updates direct from Google. For the enthusiast it's also very open for ROMs and other development.
The Nexus 4, 5 and 7 also offered some of the best price/performance available at their times, which is a big part of why they became popular (slightly controversially since Google weren't supposed to compete with their hardware partners). The Nexus 6 and 9 were more mainstream/premium in their pricing, which together with the size of the 6 probably explains why they sold much less well. So many people are hoping for a return of the Nexus 5 in both price and more mainstream size.
If you still don't get it, well I've done what I can to explain :)
Disapointed by the camera hump. I'd rather see a thicker phone that is flat and has a bigger battery.
MarcoK, 17 Aug 2015Camera hump could also be a sign for a better cameraSince this is a Nexus I highly doubt that, it will be slightly better than the previous model and all we get for it is a protruding back camera lol
looks cheap if im honest almost a step down from the nexus 6, Why doesn't google use a vendor like HTC again it would be a great partnership lg make cheap plastic and buggy phones!.
Its ugly, looks like a cheap low-end device to me.
But when i first saw the nexus 5 leaks i thought the same until i saw it in real life and i totally changed my mind!
not this pertruding camera again. i never buy phone with pertruding camera
Tomason, 17 Aug 2015WTF with the camera hump??? It is purely Nokia's design. What happened to LG designing team??Camera hump could also be a sign for a better camera
Anonymous, 17 Aug 2015Excited as hell because of this phone but...Is it just me or the fingerprint scanner looks not... morethe lens usually distorts the image especially when taken from an angle (from the lower right?). the nexus body was not parallel to the sensor plane
The frosted plastic that first Nexus 5 had is awesome and I hope this will have it also as it looks in the image.
Glass is the most stupid material to have on a back and LG learnt this after Nexus 4 and Optimus G, it's slippery and gets dirty with fingerprints in a second. Metal it's not comfortable either, take it out during the winter when it's 5C or lower and enjoy the frostbite, and then we have the scratching, oh the scratching.
