Recommended Posts

I bought one last saturday(32 gigs) and I'm pretty satisfied with it.

If you're buying it off contract you won't find a deal much better than the Nexus 5.

If you're renewing a contract, that changes things a little.

I got mine in November, just a warning the next gen of samsung/htc phones are coming so I do not know if you want to hold out for that, normally around march. The screen on the five is not that good but other than that it is a great phone.

But the Nexus 5 is cheaper and it will have similar specs so.... And the price ( I am buying it off contract)

The only thing that is a problem in my opinion is that the screen has a back light panel you can see and the screen scratches really easily. The software is great along with battery life and performance. So for it's price I would say it is great if you are willing to deal with a mediocre screen and camera. (Who uses a camera on a phone anyway other than snapchat??)

I think it is totally worth it, although if you are looking for a new phone you could always wait a month or two for the s5 and htc M8 :P

I am a proud owner of a Nexus 5 :). I can say that I am pretty satisfied with it, it is very fast and is very smooth. The only problem I have with it is the Google Now commands that can only be used if you live near US or UK. Other than that,it is totally an awesome phone and also an eye turner when you walk around the mall or something :)

it depends on what you do with your phone.

 

if you just want to browse facebook, check email, take ocassional picture, browse internet. yes

 

if you listen to alot of music. no

 

if you take lots of pictures. no


Yeah, we're all just a bunch of idiots experiencing nothing more than the placebo effect.
