I'm thinking about getting an Nexus 5, because i only have $350 in my pocket and want a smartphone. So do you think this phone is any good or should I choose another phone?

If you think i should choose another phone then please give me a link of one around my limit which is $350.
<3 Love big Screened phones.

Oh, thanks for the quick reply. I had a feeling there was a cache with this phone for the price to be that low.

im buying one as soon as the 2-3 week wait from Google drops. they use to have a 4 week wait to get shipped out of the warehouse.

But yea its a great phone and Google designed it to run true android or so I am told. http://www.itproportal.com/2013/11/04/google-nexus-5-vs-samsung-galaxy-s4-spec-comparison/ there is a specs comparison with the galaxy s4 and I would say for $350 the nexus can hold its own

The Nexus phones always have so much potential, the battery life is subpar, if they would have kept a bigger battery, this phone would have been golden.

It's a good phone, I enjoyed using it but the HTC One and S4 are still at the top of my list, the new Sony Xperia is nice as well and is in your budget but if you're set on the Nexus 5 then go for it, it's actually a great device with a lot of potential; I love the camera a lot.

I do enjoy it as a device and it's defiantly a good contender and well worth having.



Do you even use it?
I was trying to see how long I could go and still get a ton of SoT, so I admittedly didn't use it as much as I normally do.

Yeah it's a great phone. Probably one of the best phones I've owned in a long time. Really love how fast it is.

Though I agree the battery is terrible for me since I am always on it. But I can usually go 6 hours before I need a recharge at about 20%.

When an Android phone can get 5 hours+ SOT normal use along with 20+ hours of standby on mostly LTE, I'll come back to Android.
Battery life, at least for me, is one thing Apple got right.

Well, it's not 20 hours, but it's damn close. You should give android a try. :smile:

Lol, I used Android for 4 years, most recently had the One and Note 2, before I switched to an iPhone 5, it's just not as polished, even when rooted, running custom ROMs, etc.
