From note 3 to nexus 5
Was a little worried going from note 3 to nexus 5 due to screen size. Wanted the pure android experience. Couldn't be happier. I had worried about the drop off in screen size but smaller screen has its advantage. And I think 5" is the sweet spot for smartphones IMO. Love my iPad air and MacBook but glad I made switch to google for smartphones a little over a year ago. I have had the one, s4, and note 3. Have to say nexus 5 provides a better overall experience than any of the other three. There are some areas the other three may have better specs but as an overall user experience IMO nexus 5 is best smartphone on the market. I would like anyone else's thoughts on nexus 5 and if they have had any issues I should be concerned about. Appreciate the feedback.

Re: From note 3 to nexus 5
I was considering moving to a bigger phone because I'm wondering if it is better to have a phablet v a phone and tablet??? I do a lot of thumb typing for work (shot notes, maybe two paragraphs in length) frequently (school teacher taking notes on student performance and progress). But I think the n3 might be too big to carry in some occasions.
We're you any more productive on the n3? Was note taking better when thumb typing (forget the pen experience)?
Please talk me off the ledge and away from a note 3/4 device! ;-)

Re: From note 3 to nexus 5
Hardware wise the only fault I have with Nexus 5 is lack 3000mah battery however it is best android phone I have ever had.
Software wise I am only disappointed the the GEL is exclusive to Nexus 5 only has much like transparent ui look. Their is update to GEL that may push to being a play store app but yet see if transparent theme will transfer overall.
I very pleased with my Nexus 5 and can't wait see what Google does next. I don't plan upgrade Nexus 7 until it dies but I would upgrade from Nexus 5 for a Nexus with bigger battery.
