    I love it. No glass back is a plus for me. My Nexus 4 back looks like a scratching post.

    It's possible I just have bad taste, but I really like the looks of it. I've liked it since the first leak. I also like ( which so many have complained about) the large camera on the back. Makes it look different. Either way, can't wait to get this sucker!!

    I really like it. It's simple, single color with no accents. The, what could be, same soft touch matte back like the latest Nexus 7 is perfect to me. I hated the glass back on the previous model.

    I like it, I would just like the on screen buttons to be on the bottom bezel instead.

    It looks classier than the nexus 4!! Waiting for it's launch! High time I change my phone. Have pushed my desire HD to the limits while my nexus S broke down last year!

    It's not as pretty or sleek looking as the N4, but that doesn't bother me too much, my problem with it is that it's only really distinctive design aesthetic is the landscape logo, which I dislike... a lot.

    I love it. It's simple and not overdone. Plus the materials should feel really good despite the apparent price point.

    I was hoping for a new design...but its a good and a bad thing that its not a glass back model this time. The bad is obviously it looks slightly 'cheaper' than the N4, but the good is that it'll not be as fragile.

    I hated it originally from some leaks (e.g the purple one) but now it has really grown on me, its a timeless look like the n4.

    Now that I can officially see it clearly and not the hideous blurry leaks, I love it. I honestly didn't like it much from the leaks. Glad it's not glass back.

    I really like it. The soft touch plastic will be much nicer than the glass on the N4. It basically looks like my new Nexus 7 with a smaller screen, and more rounded bezels.

    I like the new look. Especially the back. I didn't like how slippery the N4 was since I don't use a case. I can't stand other phones with fingerprint magnets. This looks more in line with the HTC One X which I loved.

    Nobody has said this yet but there was an FCC picture which showed the N5 with a small square window on the top back of the phone and it looks like we are not getting whatever that feature was. I think it was a fingerprint scanner. Others have thought it could be an IR blaster. Oh well.

    I like it except for the camera. The soft back is really appealing and I love the small bezels.

    I love the looks of this thing. As others have mentioned, the soft touch plastic similar to the Nexus 7 looks and will (probably) feel great.

    It looks very big, I bet watching movies in such a big display must be great. I currently have an iPhone 5 and want to get the N5 for Xmas.

    Yeah, the soft touch is a great way to make a nice looking, and nice feeling device. It doesn't smudge easily, doesn't pick up fingerprints, and it has a nice amount of grip to it. I am glad they went with this instead of another glass back. It feels a lot better than the slippery plastic on the S4.

    Yup, it looks good to me. It may not look "high end", but I'm more of a form/function kind of guy, especially since this bad boy will stay in a protective case.

    That notch was just there for FCC purposes. Production one looks normal - doesn't have the weird black notch.

    Can anybody estimate the thickness based on the dimensions known from the FCC filling and these pictures?

    I do not like the back. The glitter in the N4 was already a very good design and I expected the next to have some sort of similar attraction.

    Ditto. The leak with the Russian(?) guy with impossibly greasy hands/ phone pictures were really special. But I like much more now. Although like another poster said the bottom bezel looks large.. like larger than my Galaxy Nexus though the top looks smaller.
