    I'm loving it so far. The camera is surprisingly good. I don't miss my N4 one bit.

    I really like it too. It is the fastest smartphone that I have ever had. Very pleased.

    Considering I came from a 3 year old iPhone 4 yeah I'm loving it. Once my voicemail bug is fixed and if they find a way to tweak the volume control a little bit (some of my tones seem more quiet than others) I will be an extremely happy guy.

    Perfect. Coming from a S2 the differences are night and day. Very happy with my purchase.

    Love my Nexus 5. No issues with the N5. Great build quality. Has more options than any phone I have owned. Only the ring & notification tones selection plus loudness and Hangout being quirky were issues with me that I have replaced with third party Apps. Now I don't have to lug around my Nexus 7 anymore with my N5.

    Try this free App Zedge for louder rings and notifications sounds. I had the same issue that I couldn't hear text notification sounds that were stock unless everything else around me was almost silent. Now my notification sound is the "old spice whistle"

    It's going great if I can get LTE back from AT&T and the power button been wobbly but other than that I love it looks and feels great and next to my N7 looks even better. My battery gets my about 14-16 hours so I'm happy, as soon as I get my case it will be better. I had a GS4 for 5 months but nothing beats having a stock Android phone. 4.4 is great love Google now. so far great...

    Has been greta overall, its an excellent all around device. Battery is the only negative it's not bad, but not great.

    It's a great phone. Love the speed and capability. No problems with anything and zero defects. Battery is better than I expected.

    It supports GPS better than my One it's replacing, does all the other little things I need just as well, and while I wish the camera wasn't the complete suckage, it's passable.

    Have you seen the shots you can take with it?

    The camera is slow, thats for sure. But the quality is awesome.

    So far so good. Only the first day, but I'm liking it. S3 is my other phone. Planning on rooting it now.

    Completely agree, along with the missed call bug. Otherwise phone is fantastic.

    The Nexus 5 is one of the most polarizing devices I've ever owned. It's uninspired at first glance, even at first use. Once you use it for a week or so, however, all the little nuances become apparent and what was uninspired becomes genius. It's a great phone.

    Anyways... I love the N5! The screen is so nice, where reviewers have called it washed out. I call it perfect. Not a fan of oversaturation. Kit Kat on it has change's I really like. My old eyes really favor the bigger icons and fonts. Wicked fast phone. 32GB compared to my 16GB GN. Like everything about it! Even the Camera.

    Absolutely loving it. The one thing I am having to get used to in a somewhat negative way is the length of time it takes for the camera to resolve and take a picture, but I'm coming from an EVO 4G LTE, which had a dedicated camera chip (which is a brilliant design... more phone OEMs should try it), so I'm just getting used to that change/regression.

    But it's so quick and buttery smooth. Battery life is better than I expected, and it's just a nicely solid piece of kit. (Switching away from Sprint is a nice bonus!)

    Since discovering I can set a different default app for the swipe up from home (the Google Now gesture), I am loving my Nexus 5:

    Just install this free app called "Screen Off And Lock": https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...nofflock&hl=en

    Then swipe up from Home (like you would to get to Google Now) and it'll ask you to set a new default:

    Attachment 92046

    Grant it permissions, and now, every time you swipe up from Home, you can lock your screen/device from anywhere! Great for those who don't want to overuse the power button, and for those who obviously don't use Google Now like that.

    To get rid of it, just go to "Screen Off and Lock" app in your App settings and Clear Defaults (or just uninstall the app).

    Just thought I'd share.
