Summary: Really. When I purchased this product I was absolutely devoted to Google - owning a Nexus 5, a Nexus 7, Google Fiber in my condo and using their search engine almost exclusively. Google has broken my trust, one device at a time. Reviews regarding the speed, camera quality, slick graphics, etc., are true, but don't let the pretty colors and flashing lights influence your decision. Not only has Google failed to fix old issues that are minor but irritating ex.
Know what you're getting. This is not the North American model.

Summary: It's a great phone, but Buyer's Beware. The D821 is the International Version of the Nexus 5. It does not have all the correct bands to use LTE in North America. You'd think American sellers would mention that Americans should not get this phone unless they're heading overseas. Only after spending two hours on the phone with AT&T without success and then doing more internet research did I find out that the difference between a D820 and a D821 is a big deal.
