    Default Back with the Nexus 5 after my 1st went down a drain a while back, this time i have the black one

    I have to say that the soft touch back on the black version feels so much better than the hard plastic feel of the white version, just seems to feel like a more premium finish

    anyways, glad to have the Nexus again, i love my HTC One but i do love my Nexus devices

    And this time...... this one wont be going down a rain drain!!!

    Put a TPU skin on it, it will protect it and it feels a lot better than the naked N5.I'm have a Diztronic,

    I thought you went with the moto x after you lost your Nexus 5? If so, what brought you back?

    I sold the moto x, got an offer I couldn't refuse lol, then got an amazing deal on a HTC one $180, been with that for about 6 weeks now, then I was selling my LG G Pad and got an amazing trade deal with a new Nexus 5 on swappa, so now the HTC one is up for sale

    I have to say.. It is nice to hear a fellow addict.. I do the same thing. I have bought 5 Nexus 5's gone through a couple Samsung Galaxy Note 3's a couple htc One's and Galaxy S4's.. Back to iPhone's and then hate using those for a month and try to find another android.. I sometimes wish I could just stay content but then I come back to these forums (AC and imore) and start reading a bunch and it's all over. Want this and want that lol.. Have a Nexus 5 on order and should be here in a couple of days. Try and sell my iPhone 5s.

    But I agree, I am really looking forward to the HTC One M8.. If that isn't up to snuff probably the S5..

    One other major difference between this one and the launch day white one is this does not have loose buttons, the white one had a loose power and volume rocker, this one is nice and tight

    so do you prefer the black version to the white one? I have the black Nexus 5 and wish I had got the white one. I really like the back of the black Nexus 5, is the white version even close to the premium feel or is it a cheap feel like the S4?

    The black has a much better feel to it, the white one really does feel cheap compared, i loved the way the white looked but the black one does feel more of a premium device with the soft touch, the white isnt soft touch at all, its just white plastic

    thanks for the above, as soon as the Nexus was available to buy in the UK I bought the black one, without actually seeing the white version in person. think i'll stay with the black, I hope more phones in the future have the same material back as the Nexus 5 black does
