    hi all
    currently using iphone 4s ( long story as to why ) but have been wanting to go back to android for quite some time but unable to afford to UNTIL now with the nexus 5. I'm still on contract for about 8 months but selling the 4s plus extra few quid to get the nexus. Using my current sim then when contract ends go to sim only. The phone seems to check all my boxes, the camera seems to be fine ( as long as it is not worse the the 4s ) holds its own in what i've seen against galaxy s4 . The only things i have not yet seen are does it have dlna ( ie play nice with my samsung tv for pics and vid off the phone ) and what the battery life will be like, again as long as it is not worse than the 4s i think this might be the phone to get me back to android .

    any help and advice would be great .

    again thanks
    tbg

    The question shouldn't be to buy or not buy but what color and size will you buy.

    Not sure if it does or not, but if you install something like Bubble Upnp, it should be fine, I think.

    I use bubble on my nexus 7 which does not have dlna but would prefer it if it was slightly easier via dlna rather than a work around via an app.

    I use a google chromecast to "cast" everything between my N7/N4 and Vizio TV.

    Battery reviews seem to coming in with the best I've seen being rated at just "OK" going down to almost bad so nothing great so far. All referring to low , medium , heavy usage which is down to individual use, I'm not sure what category my daily usage would be in . Has anyone seen direct stats or comparisons, the comparison I'm need is against iphone 4s to get an indication relative to my phone ie video run down time , music etc etc . I know it's still early in the nexus life and still waiting for FULL reviews but any help would be great because if the battery is as good /Bad as the 4s then I'll be ordering mine asap just need the final piece in the puzzle regarding the battery

    thanks all

    well, Verge review said Nexus 5's battery is among the worst they seen in a while, their battery test lasts 3.75hrs, and real world usage ranging from 8 to 16 hrs under "moderate use". Unfortnately they did not run the battery test on iPhone 4s, but did comment that it go through 16 hrs easily with "heavy use".

    I am going to say its likely that Nexus 5's battery life is significantly worse than iPhone 4s'.

    I have not been impressed with the battery life at all!!! Had to grab the charger 3 times yesterday. Coming from the Note 3, it has been an adjustment, but I'm going to give it a few more days.

    Since I got it yesterday though, I'm going to really put it through its paces today and see how it turns out.

    I'll still wait to get conformation on comparison battery life hoping it's not worse than 4s. It's just at that price I can get back onto android before my contract ends and so I don't have to wait but if battery is not so good I will probably just wait until contract ends then see what's out there

    try calibrate it first, do a 100-10-100% procedure, then see how long it lasts from there.
