    I have offer to give my HTC one for new Nexus 5 (my HTC is used, but little and to ne fair, it's new). Should I do this? Is Nexus an upgrade?

    Google Nexus 5 vs HTC One

    They are really close, either decision is probably fine.

    Nexus has google's brand behind it, a larger screen and a promise of quick upgrade
    HTC One has a more colorful screen, a longer battery life, and a HTC bran behind it (is it a good thing? who knows)

    Have both and my daily driver is still the HTC One! Its a device thats been very hard to replace! But in the end it really depends on your needs and taste. I'd go with what works best for you! Do you have access to play with them both?

    Have to disagree here. I have both but since I got the N5 I rarely use the One. The screen is noticeably smaller, I find the display on the N5 to be more colorful than the One and the One has terrible ergonomics whereas the N5 is easy to use one handed and much faster and smoother.

    Definitely.

    The only thing the One does better is the Stereo speakers. But at the very least, you will be getting OS updates long after HTC has forgotten about the One. Nexus 5 also has a faster CPU and significantly better camera. I like the on-screen buttons of the nexus much better as well. The Nexus will have a brighter display that is easier to see in sunlight.

    Sorry for saying that, but still no decision here. Loved N4... Still I'm looking for phone to stick with for at least a year... Need to read more. But more I read, more I'm confused... one say one one say Nexus...

    Remember, comments and opinions are subjective. You really need to try both devices and see which fits your needs. Both devices will get you through the next year without any problems. But you want to be comfortable with your selection especially if you won't be able to purchase a replacement within that time.

    Hmmm, with all the problems (especially speakerphone coming on by itself while making calls)
    I have been facing on my One after upgrading to 4.4.2 , you ought to get the nexus 5 over the One.

    Good luck

    I don't have that problem, and I'm on 4.4.2.

    People keep using price point as pros for Nexus. My question is, someone is giving Nexus 5 and htc one for free, which to take?

    I would say nexus 5 but I hate HTC phones (came from using Samsung phones the s2, s3, s4 and maybe s5) and despise HTC sense and the new blinkfeed thing. I'll also take naked android and faster updates over HTC one sense ui and slower updates + less of them most likely
