    Default Charging port reversed!

    Just got my Nexus 5 and one of the first things I notice is that my charging port is reversed compared to the orientation on the Nexus 4. So now my phone would face backwards on my desktop docking station were I to use it. Why Google why???? Has anyone else noticed this?? How can this possibly be a necessary change?

    I guess they want to be different?

    It varies on all of my Nexus devices. You just get used to it. Don't know if Google had anything to do with that spec.

    If you're referring to the wide side of the USB port being at the front (i.e., display) side of the device instead of being at the back side, I agree. Every other USB connected device I've ever used has had the narrow side of the USB port facing "up."

    Devices vary based on who knows what. My wife's HTC One has the same orientation as my n5 but my moto x and s4 had the opposite. I never thought about it being a problem but on a dock I guess it would be an issue.
