    Nexus 5 Driver (ADB and Fastboot) Installation Guide

    EDIT: Oh, and of course there's the usual "try another cable," "check that a pin isn't bent," and under the Nexus 5's Settings, go to Storage, bring up the menu, hit "USB computer connection," and make sure "Media Device (MTP)" is selected.
    Thanks. The troubleshooting method there did the trick. It works fine now. I knew it wasn't a cable problem since the N4 and the N7 were connecting fine with the same cable.
    I choose Android...it's only logical.

    Its yahoo. Ive had issues with 3 different phones (3 different brands) and Yahoo emails either don't get pushed or it says (login fail) and its only happening to Yahoo. They're forcing you to use their lame yahoo mail app.

    When is Google going to do an update to fix WiFi connection problem? Have router that includes the 5 and 2.4 gigahertz bands and massive issues with connection.
    Initially worked but now problems.
    Tried going into airplane mode and back, been in settings and enabled 2.4 gigahertz only, have turned phone off and then on. Only found temporary fixes.
    Love the Nexus 5 but this is a real issue that has my attention.
    Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.

    This might be a dumb question but , i just havent been able to find out how to delete pictures from the gallery? Should be straight forward, but it isnt. I hold down on a pic and no delete option shows up.

    Also , i have both Apex and Nova installed and when i tapped the Home button it gave me the option of which to use. It has stopped doing that and only uses the Google Launcher and NO, i dont have it set as default.

    To delete a pic in Gallery tap on the pic then tap the menu/settings button and there's an option to delete.

    I'm not sure about the non default launcher thing.

    Yea its weird, it doesnt offer a delete option on all of them.

    EDIT** I got the default launcher working normally again. I like the Google launcher because the screen buttons are transparent and give you more screen space but you cant add icons on the dock. I like to roll with seven using Nova or Apex.

    Getting the camera ready to take pictures takes a few hundred milliseconds too long. My Galaxy Nexus was a lot faster. That is from the time I press camera on N5 until the time I can snap a picture. Also even if I am already in camera mode on N5, I press the blue button to take a picture and it takes like almost a half of a second, maybe longer before the snap. Step backwards.

    The only problem I have found is that I can't get my phone charging wirelessly. I bought a car charger that is QI WPA 1.1 compliant and nothing happened, so got a replacement unit assuming the charger was at fault but this is the same. Is my phone faulty, anyone else experienced this?

    Having trouble sending and receiving text messages. Receiving some messages hours later. Also not receiving some calls. Phone going straight to voice mail.

    Surely that must be a network thing? What sort of coverage does it say you have?

    Check your google+ account. Some pics are locked into it. Picasa tool let's you work with those pics from device. I don't use pictures much on my devices but remember that issue a while back when I wanted to delete some.
    I'm trying to refresh my memory on it now but you'll probably figure it out before that happens. Google+ defaults to auto back-ups.
    New kit Kat app, photos plus, might do the job. I can't replicate the no delete scenario atm.
    I can't locate all the photos in the photo plus app. However, the photos in auto backup folder and post folder (in gallery) don't offer delete option there but do in picasa tool.

    I rooted my phone tooday, got freedom, uninstalled it, then wiped all data because wifi wasn't working suddenly. Then when i opened it up, wifi still doesnt work and customer service isn't on.

    This is usually due to a rogue app that hasn't been updated for 4.4 Kit Kat. I have had this happen a lot when I get a new OS update. It isn;t common to everyone because they may not have the same apps you do.

    Four new issues for me:
    - Camera not metering correctly so outdoor shots completely blown out. (Reboot not fixing it)
    - GPS cutting out intermittently (need to reboot to fix)
    - data connection send to not always work as I will open a browser and pages won't start to load for about 5-10 second
    - WiFi disconnects for no reason

    Add this to:
    - the voicemail notification issue
    - Camera app freezing intermittently
    - haptic feedback has gotten weaker
    - the Bluetooth headphone issue

    Pretty much all of it is probably software and I wish Google would at least release some kind of update by now...

    Maybe I will just rma it and see if a new one fixed any of the issues...

    I have been having terrible audio *output* drop outs (which I assume is audio stopping while it buffers). It's getting to the stage that I am going to return the phone to google and use my Nexus 4 again. I have had it with Chrome, Smart Audiobook player and very very badly with Google Play - even with locally stored mp3s. Also I am seeing about 1 reboot every 2 days, but this is liveable. Has anyone else had the same agony? If it is software I can wait for the fix, but if it's hardware I better return it before I lose my chance.

    Am going to try to record a video of the problem using my issue-free Nexus 4.

    Hey guys just got the N5. Anyone else notice more dropped calls compared to prior device? Came from an S3 that didn't have problems.

    Hello guys,
    I just go the N5 for my wife. Since we are currently using GoSmart Mobile, we simply just cut the sim card and moved it over to the new phone. However; what happened was that my wife is unable to receive text messages from Sprint and ATT (no problem with TMboile, Verizon etc), but she can send them out to these carriers. Does anyone have any idea what the problem may be and whether this is KitKat related issue? I tried to use a 3rd party text messenger instead of Hangout but this did not help. GoSmart had no idea either as they tried to switched me between different towers with no luck of restoring messages.
    Please let me know and thanks a lot in advance.

    The only issue I have had so far is that the Battery app (Settings -> Battery) sometimes show the wrong "on battery" in the graph at the top. Mine currently show 1d 3h 36m, but I know it is about 1d 6h 45m.

    Battery time is far better than any other Android phone I have had or seen. In stand-by with out actively using it, it draws about 1% of the battery per hour. Using the phone for 20-30 minutes a day leaves me with about 70-80% of the battery left in the evening. I am running with the location setting in Battery saving mode and with ART as the runtime though, but with Google Now etc turned on.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned but I had the same problem when I compared to friend's AT&T LTE phones. A simple APN change fixed the problem.

    A problem - though I am unsure if it truly is a problem - is that I have seen mine drop all cell signal when the signal is low (1-2 bars) for a few seconds before popping back up to 1-2 bars. When compared to my GF's S3 she will still have a bar while I have nothing. Granted its only happened a few times and only for a few seconds but it still worries me. I know it could simply be a signal problem but I am more than a little paranoid when it comes to new devices.

    What were the APN changes you you made?
