    What is the texture like? Same soft feel as the black, or closer to the slick feel of the white?
    I have had the black nexus 5 before this and i can confirm the back is like the white nexus 5. It is not like the black soft touch back it is more like the white nexus 5 back.

    The guy in this video says the opposite. I'm torn. The feel is kind if a deciding factor for me.

    I actually did more research and i was wrong, i think. taking a better look at the white nexus 5 the red one has the black back and the black sides not the way the white nexus 5 is.

    I want to get it so bad. But I have a perfectly good Moto X I love. Can't justify two phones.

    "Another burning (as in "well, what is it?!?!" and not "oh, my eyes!") question was whether the back case would be the matte plastic like the white Nexus 5, or the more stylish soft-touch black. It's the former. No soft-touch to be found here."

    Just ordered a red one for the wife. Seeing as how the phone is red and Valentines day is coming up, would it be unromantic of me to pass this off as a V-day gift or am i stuck still having to shop for something else?

    Now you mention it i think the back is the matte plastic and the sides are also matter. The sides are not shiny like the white nexus 5 they are matte.

    I'd be totally happy with that Vday gift - useful AND red.

    You don't have to be rich, just skilled in trading or selling your devices to get what you want.

    It doesn't surprise me. The red ones are sweet looking.

    If people are still wondering about the color MKBHD gave the best color description in my opinion.

    In the video it looks orange to me, not really a cherry color. Maybe it's the "yellow tint" on my Nexus 5.

    It is more of an orange mixed with red. To my eyes it is not pure orange but you definitely see the orange when looking at it.

    I'd love an orange phone even more than a red one. Good thing it isn't because I can't afford it now... But this makes me wonder if they'll do something similar with the 2014 Nexus and, if so, maybe I should not buy one when it comes out but wait until next February... :rolleyes:

    I was going to bite the bullet and buy the white one when they announced the phone and I am glad that I didn't because I got the Red one and I love it

    I like the red back, but I don't like the red phone speaker-hole. The phone is so symmetric that it is easy to mistake it for the LED (which I have flashing red for certain things). The white N5 has the same problem. I'm sticking with my black one for now.

    I have the white one and love it, but I'd be totally up for a different color other than black or white for my next one. Haha! Too bad I'm not rich or I'd get one in every color! I love this phone.

    I just got me a red case of my black N5 instead of ordering the new phone. Looks great.
