    I think you'll be quite impressed with the Nexus 5 (Nexuscillin 5). I don't think anyone but Google can really tell you about how it'll be updated but it is a rather strong device and I'd expect support to be quite good. Problems? Nothing systemic. In fact, I've not had any whatsoever on my baught-from-Sprint-but-used-on-AT&T sample. The only difference between the black and white version is the back cover and the glossy black surround that is used on the white version.

    I keep mine in a case and always will, so hopefully, will not have any paint chipping.

    No one knows about the long term updates but I think the Nexus 4 and 5 having a very popular CPU are going to have excellent chances of being up to date for android for two years minimum. Bottom line really is that Nexus phones have the highest chance of being up to date than any other Android phone sold anywhere.

    Nexus devices receive updates fairly frequently and for a good time. The Galaxy Nexus just got 4.3, and it's a two year old device.

    The development community will support it fora while after that, so there's that route if you decide to unlock the bootloader and root.

    The raised edge on the camera lens protects it from scratches. I never thought about scratches on the bezels.

    But then, no one here can guarantee anything, and a lot of it depends on your usage. This isn't a toughbook, so if you're going to be rough with it, you will scratch it or even shatter the screen. But I don't see any problems with what most of us consider normal usage.

    If you care about scratches you need to get some kind of case, even a slim TPU. If you don't get a case there's a high likelihood your phone is going to show wear faster than if you'd put a case on it. Just my .02 cents.
