Was great before upgrade
14 January 2015
Summary: Was the best phone I ever owned... And then android 5.0.... Seemed good at first. Wish I could go back. Connect ability has gone from a 10 to a 3 on low battery. They really need to fix this. Spend twice as much time loading any page. On low battery many times pages that used to load in seconds take 5 minutes or more. Some don't even load. I searched this on my Nexus 5 and had to use an iPad just to leave this stupid comment. I'm so over the hype.
Pros: awesome interface
Cons: stupid slow internet for apparently no reason after android 5 upgrade
The camera quality is not very good unless the lighting is very good

Summary: The price was right on this one, but I have some complaints. The camera quality is not very good unless the lighting is very good. The delay in snapping the shot means you miss a lot of perfect moments. It is easy to get blurry or grainy shots. The volume is a bit better than my iPhone 4 had been, but there's a lot of "fuzz" to the sound at higher volumes. I work in a building that doesn't have great coverage from my carrier, and this phone doesn't have Wi-Fi calling.
Great product, but the supplier needs to work on ...

Summary: Great product, but the supplier needs to work on delivery and packaging. When the parcel arrived is was almost completely open on one end. The phone box could have easily slipped out of the box at any time during transit, but fortunately for me, this was not the case. Also, the charging adapter given with the product was not compatible with the phone; it refused to charge. I had to use a different wall-to-USB charger.
Summary: - Nice big screen, but no very bright. - Light weight. - Battery is too weak, it can not complete one full day without recharging. - I face some errors with a few apps but I am not sure whether it is app related or operating system related.
Summary: I've had my Nexus 5 for a couple of months now; I upgraded from a Nexus One that I was pretty happy with but I needed the extra memory and battery life. I'm not sure the exchange was worth it. All of the basic apps are cumbersome -- the contacts, the phone tool, the calendar. You can choose colors for this stuff now (yawn), and I guess there a few more advanced features, but seriously after two months I haven't gotten used to any of it, and I miss the simple...
Excerpt: I decided to give a try at converting from IOS to Android, and from Apple to LG Nexus. It's not a bad creature, but... thus far... I have to admit disappointment. I find the built-in apps, as well as most of the downloaded ones, are less intuitive, and less consistant. Also, fewer good quality free-of-charge and free-of-advertising apps with Android. As for the hardware, I'm disappointed with the battery consumption in my Nexus.
Summary: Great phone. However, it is not the best it could be. You will not be able to USB tether with T-mobile, as somehow the phone let's the network know tethering is active and T-mobile will block you (i.e. it is to no avail changing your browser's user agent on your laptop). Also, I find the automatic "detection if your phone is next to your ear" really buggy.
