    " Oh look! a pulse notification light..where is it? Owell who cares..." smh lol
    I kept thinking, 'Does it occur to you that maybe it's hidden on the bottom like Nexus 4?' lol Hell, all it takes is an off-center flashlight to spot it.

    But still, pretty good review and I enjoyed it. =0)

    Just curious...when did you get a notification from google that it was being shipped and when did you get it?

    I live 10 miles away from google HQ. I shouldn't have to wait 2 days!!

    He more than likely picked it up at a store.

    Could you check to see if it allows trusted bluetooth devices? I'm not sure if that would be in the security settings or in bluetooth, but that was one thing that almost made me get the Moto X.

    I did place an order with Google but a local store had them in stock this morning sim free (in UK).

    I just went to a Carphone Warehouse store here in London and checked out the Nexus 5. They were sold out but had a demo unit I could check out. Build quality is top notch. It feels great in your hand. It's also surprisingly thin and light. I was impressed.

    I tried scrolling around as much as possible, and could only get a tiny, tiny bit of lag/choppiness to pop up when using Chrome. I surfed to ESPN, The Verge, and a few other sites to see how it handled media heavy sites, and it did fine.

    I can't comment on the camera, battery life, etc., but from an initial impression standpoint, it's a great phone. I'm SUPER tempted now to jump from my iPhone 5 to the N5. Well done LG & Google.

    Not so much anymore. Every store in my area is now sold out, but they'll get more.

    Yes it uses a micro SIM. I just purchased a nano to micro SIM adapter from Amazon.
    Careful! Several adapters are crap and end up getting stuck in phones. There is only one brand of adapter I would ever trust. Thanks to the wonderful staff at Ac to steering me in the right direction! Great quality German adapters. Here Is a quick write up I did on them.

    There are several apps on the Play Store that will do this for any Android phone. Personally I use Delayed Lock with its Bluetooth plugin. Works perfectly. Just saying... this shouldn't be a determining factor for buying or not buying.

    To anyone who has a Nexus 5 and a pair of headphones with in-line media controls (Play/Pause, Volume), do all the buttons work? I know on the Nexus 4 only the Play/Pause button would work on a few headsets I tried.

    I can vouch for the quality of those posted here. I ordered one and used it between my Moto X and now dearly-departed G2. SIM snaps into place and does not budge. Great product, and cheap!
    Will be using it with the nano-SIM from my Moto X in my Nexus 5.

    Now I feel like I should not use the eBay adapter that I bought. My nexus will be here on Monday. Does anyone know of adapters here in the states to buy and get it as quick as possible
