  •  the good and bad 01 May 2014

    4/5 stars

    By shrey gautam

    This phone is good in performance and display but weak in camera and battery backup. The battery feature should have been improved before release.

  •  Great phone at an exceptional price. 06 May 2014

    5/5 stars

    By abcd sdf

    First of all ,I will list down the pros of nexus 5. 1. Pure unadulterated android version,although somewhat you feel like its more of Google. 2.Exceptionally fast processor and bright full hd display. 3.First one to receive latest android updates. 4.Last but not the least,Best value for money phone available in the market in this range. The cons- 1.Average battery life. 2.No slot for external memory card, although you can get the 32 GB version also. 3.Not great camera. All I can say is,if you are ok with its battery life and camera,then just buy this phone,I guarantee you will not regret it.

  •  Nexus 5 01 May 2014

    4/5 stars

    By Dakshin Karthik

    Hi I have been using nexus 5 for 4 months. Overall the phone is very good for its price. Pros: 1080p display which is amazing for movies Snapdragon 800 processor and adreno 330gpu can run any game smoothly.It is one of those very few phones that can run games as smooth as an iPhone. Camera is very good. Cons:But I am not satisfied with the build quality If you drop the phone from pocket,the screen will shatter. If you are able to use a case it is safe. The internal storage is small. Verdict:Best phone for rs.30000

  •  Awesome Gadget with some compromises. !! 02 May 2014

    4/5 stars

    By Sumit Chauhan

    The nexus 5 is the best phone in this price range, it does come with a small battery & the camera is not the best considering other flagship models but the fact that you get the latest chipset from Qualcomm & the adreno 330 GPU along with 2GB ram & most important of all updates from google for the next 18 months at least makes this phone a value for money product, another stand out feature for me is Corning Gorilla glass 3 which means a screen guard is not required for the screen however some may disagree. Pro & Cons have been discussed in many other reviews so i thought i would state a few battery saving tips. 1) Screen brightness set manually as per requirement & not on auto. 2) Turn Off Google Now if not required. 3) Uncheck Wi-fi scanning even when wi-fi is switched off. 4) Bluetooth,GPS, Wi-fi,NFC & other wireless features switched off when not required. 5)Vibrate on keypress also switched off. 6)Refrain from using Live wallpapers. 7) Keep Widget usage to a minimum & keep as few home screens as possible. 8) Manually update apps switch off auto-updates as constant search for updates online does drain battery. 9) Toggle between 2G/3G as per requirement, especially considering 3G reception is still not great in india. 10) Kill all apps that you dont want running in the background.
