    I have had enough of the HTC One phones and I'm planning on moving forward to the Nexus 5. Question is, shall I get it right away or wait for the upcoming phones such as SG5, HTC One 2 or the other SG F (possibly fake)? To be honest, Galaxy is no more of an interested to me so it's either going to be Nexus 5 for me and/or HTC One 2.

    Also, is there any difference between the Google Nexus 5 and LG Nexus 5? Is it a Google edition phone like the other HTC One Google edition or it's just the same thing?

    Nexus 5 is made by LG and runs pure android like the Google play editions of the phones you mentioned.

    It's a Google Nexus 5 that was manufactured by LG. LG manufactured the Nexus 4 and 5, but Samsung and HTC also made a Nexus device for Google.

    Same phone
    Not a Google Edition, those phones are based off of the N5

    I would suggest you pick yourself up a Nexus 5. The phone is epic and I really can't fault it. in 2013 I had an HTC Once and Galaxy S4, the Nexus 5 doesnt compare to these phones, its so smooth and a pleasure to use. Apparently there is going to be a red Nexus 5 released soon, so if colour is important to you then hold fire for a few weeks. The Nexus 5 will still be a great phone come the end of 2014 as it will get all the updates first, its also super fast.

    Normally I'd always suggest to buy when you need it but we're so close to some new phones coming out.

    I think I'd wait but then again I just bought the G2 for my kid and love it sooo lol

    Chasing new technology is a losing game. The Nexus 5 is barely a few months old and is a great phone at a very reasonable price. The longer you wait, the more technology you will be able to buy..... for a price. You won't see a deal like this until the next Nexus comes out. You want to wait until the end of this year for that to happen? By then, you will be asking the same questions again.

    I love the N5 which I would recommend to anyone however, the HTC M8 or whatever it will be called might be worth waiting for depending if you want stock or skinned android. But like what has already been mentioned with Nexus devices you will always be the first for future OS updates which is always a plus.

    I think I'll go with the N5 then. And as for the newly HTC M8, the specs are to be the same actually so there's no big deal about it. I hope I made the right choice this time.

    Yeah, as others have said, don't chase the tech. The nexus is a great value, and a great phone.

    If you need something right now get what you'll be most happy with. Otherwise, holdout and see what interest you and decide going a different route later. Keep in mind that although devices should be announced in the coming months, release could still be months out. So it depends on your needs and/or wants right now. The Nexus 5 is a great device, but don't count out others such as the Moto X, which is going for a great price off contract.

    You not only get the updates first. When skinned phones like Samsung, LG and so on they get older and the companies don't make any more money out of them they don't update dose phones any more.

    No idea, but I'd guess around the same time that the N5 was released (late October/Early November)

    I think I would wait until at least MWC at the end of February, where there are bound to be a number of new phone announced. Also, the whole Nexus program is in flux and we know what happens to support when Google decides to changes their minds.
