    My 32 GB Nexus 5 just arrived today. Upgrading from a Samsung Galaxy Nexus. However, I haven't gotten a SIM card from Sprint yet so just playing with it on Wifi for now. It just updated itself to 4.4.4. My GNex and Tablet (Nexus 7 of course) were only on 4.4.2 so this should be interesting. Need to do my unlock the bootloader reminder course before doing anything else.
    I should also add that this is the first time I've ever bought a phone and didn't just get my upgrade but Sprint only had the 16 GB version, and they wonder why it wasn't that popular.

    Ordered by red 32GB on the morning of September 25, and it shipped that evening. Received it September 30, and activated it at a very busy Sprint store on October 1. As expected, the staffer had some trouble activating the phone, and had to look-up a document in Sprint's internal knowledge database. But it took just 5 minutes overall to have him install a SIM card and I was on my way.

    Love this phone. I came from an LG G1, which I think is still a gorgeous, all glass device, but the wireless charging and compatibility with Android Wear brought me to a Nexus. I once owned the Sprint Galaxy Nexus, and I was bitterly disappointed in the battery life. So far, the Nexus 5 meets or exceeds the LG G1. And wireless charging is just too cool, despite the slightly slower charging speed. I had argued for years that we will never need phones with 1080p displays. Well now that I own one, I simply cannot complain. It is pretty stunning.

    Also the amount of music I can store on the device is impressive. With the G1, my 12GB of music brought the storage in-use to 31.2GB. WIth the Nexus 5, I have the same music on-board, and about 11GB free. Bye bye, bloat.

    Nice that Sprint had something in their internal database! Attempting to activate mine this weekend though may ultimately move over to T-mobile for less money.

    I'm back! I had the N5 for a while, but sold it for a nexus 4. Well, after seeing the size and price of the N6, I decided to go back to the N5 (black) and sell my N4. A year later, it's still one of the top performing phones out there. I'll probably keep it for a year or so, and see what google comes out with next year.

    ok, thanks for the answers everyone,

    I deducted that if buying a nexus from google play at full price, there should be NO msl TO be obtained to unlock the handset, for the msl is for subsidized devices only -

    I have an 8GB Nexus 4 unlocked that I love and use on Consumer Cellular. But I am always runing out of space these days and want to upgrade to a 32GB Nexus 5 unlocked. But for the last two months, it has been out of stock. The Nexus 6 is way too big. There is also a rumor that there will be a Galaxy S5 GPE. If you know anything about this, let me know.

    How often should I check the site for the Nexus 5?
    Do they replenish the stock on a given day of the week?
    Is there a better place for me to buy it?

    Just ordered a new red 32bg D820 for $199 free shipping. Can't wait to get it in a few days. Here's the link for anyone interested: Google Nexus 5 D820 (32GB, Red, Unlocked, New) #D820-New-32-RED - Expansys USA it's a good price for a phone that can still compete (speed wise) with the latest phones. Can't wait to get it and start playing around with roms and such.

    Got my "new" Nexus 5 D821 16GB from Ebay in an auction from an Italian seller. Pretty happy with the deal as the phone is nearly pristine and battery life looks to be over 3h of SOT.

    I have been using BlackBerrys for the last several years (Q10 then Passport then Classic). Thinking about moving to Android and this is my trial device. So far so good!

    IMO- This original Nexus 5 is the still the best phone google ever had built for them. I know the camera is better on the new nexus 5x's, but performance and endurance, this thing can't be beat, unless you hit it with a hammer!

    Still have my Nexus 5 , but now it is my Wife's phone. Had a GS6 that I broke so now I have a 7. Gotta say, compared to those the Nexus 5 is garbage. Dont care for plain Android and I'll probably never buy another one.

    Comparing a Nexus 5 to an S7 isn't really fair, you're comparing old hardware to cutting edge, of course the N5 is going to suffer.

    Personally I think the N5 was a fantastic phone, probably one of my favourite ever handsets. Occasionally when I'm on site I'll pop my sim in to my old N5, it still performs admirably with no lag, I could easily use it as my daily driver.

    True but I'm not comparing the hardware at all. I don't like plain Android and I don't like the fact when I took it on a airplane with wifi, the Nexus wouldnt dont get recognised and my Samsung does. So I couldn't use the Nexus. The only thing I liked better about it is it got faster updates but that isn't enough for me.

    I like the extras I get on touch wiz that I dont get on plane Android and that is all software, not hardware.
    It's wasnt bad but I wasn't real impressed with the Nexus 5. Bad volume level, battery wasn't that good. Going to sell it when I get the GS 6 fixed(broken screen).
