Great phone at an exceptional price.
By abcd sdf | 6 May 2014
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.

Awesome Gadget with some compromises. !!
By Sumit Chauhan | 2 May 2014
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.

the good and bad
By shrey gautam | 1 May 2014
This phone is good in performance and display but weak in camera and battery backup. The battery feature should have been improved before release.

Very dissapointed with Google
By G Morris | 16 Mar 2015
I bought 3 brand new Nexus 5 from google. 1 1/2 years later two are still working but have had an issue with one from the start. 6 months after buying the phone would not start up. I contacted Google and they said send it back. I did and received a refurbished phone back. Six months after that the phone would try to start up and but never start. Talked to Google on phone, did what they said and it still would not start. Sent it back like they said, this time they said PowerFreeze issue and wanted me to pay $189. They said their technical department said physical damage to phone. Phone was in exact shape when rec'd, perfect condition. Also PowerFreeze is a common complaint for this phone. Will never do business with Google again as long as I live.
