Nexus 5

Here comes Google and LG's next big thing

Today brings an end to all the rumors, leaks and speculation — the LG-made Google Nexus 5 is finally official and the Google Play Store is now taking orders.

Here's the long and short of it: This year's Nexus handset is a 5-incher with a 1080p display, a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU and 2GB of RAM. Storage comes in 16 and 32GB configurations. The Nexus 5 is the first Nexus device to ship with an OIS (optical image stabilization) camera — an 8MP unit — which should compensate for hand motion in photos. It's also packing a 2300mAh battery and wireless charging capabilities.

Two Nexus 5 models will be offered, a North American version with CDMA support, 7-band WCDMA and 9-band LTE, and an international version with 6-band WCDMA and 6-band LTE. For a full list of radio bands and other technical info, check out our full Nexus 5 specs post.

Prices in the UK start at £295; in the U.S. it's $349 for 16GB and $399 for 32GB. It's available to order now on Google Play Store in several countries with 1-2 day shipping times; brick-and-mortar stores in the UK should have it tomorrow (Nov. 1).  The first thousand UK buyers who pick up a Nexus 5 from Carphone Warehouse on-contract can claim a free 16GB Nexus 7 (2012). Carphone's on-contract prices start at £32 per month on 3G and £37 on 4G, both from O2.

Naturally, the Nexus 5 runs the all-new Android 4.4 KitKat, which we're still in the process of learning about amid today's announcements. Stay tuned for additional info just as soon as we get it.

Keep it locked to Android Central for more on today's Nexus and Android 4.4 KitKat news as it breaks.

Press Release

NEXUS 5 AVAILABLE AT CARPHONE WAREHOUSE FROM TOMORROW

New flagship Google handset £295 SIM free

LONDON, 31st October 2013: Carphone Warehouse has announced that it will be stocking Google’s new flagship handset, the Nexus 5, from tomorrow (Friday 1st Nov).

Free from £32 per month*, or £295 SIM free, the first device to run on Android 4.4 ‘Kit-Kat’ will be available in stores, online at www.carphonewarehouse.com or by calling 0870 870 0870.

The first 1,000 customers to order the Nexus 5 on a 4G contract** via the Carphone Warehouse website will also receive a free Google Nexus 7 Wi-Fi 16GB tablet (worth £139).

David Phelan, Mobile Technology Advisor at Carphone Warehouse says, “Google's own-brand phones are always a talking point. The Nexus 5 has been hotly anticipated and delivers style and power in a slick, slim shell with a screen that stretches from one edge of the front to the other. Google fans like Nexus because it shows Android at its purest and most advanced: the latest Kit-Kat software will be on this phone first. This phone is for early adopters, Google fans and ‘power users’ who want a high-end phone at a keen price.

“Now Android is such a powerful force in mobile, we can expect the Nexus 5 with its cutting-edge specs to beat even the success of the Nexus 4.”

* O2 3G contract £32 per month, includes unlimited calls and texts and 1GB of data
**O2 4G contract £37 per month, includes unlimited calls and texts and 2GB of data

I dont see a 32gb model or any white phones in Google play. what is going on?

baca008 says:

Just change the "black" in the url to white and itll bring up the white version

I ordered 2 of each! Halloween!

FRoStYisGoD says:

Wow went to go and buy a 16 gig model since I just saw this posting it's been an hour and the black and white is already sold out wow that was fast. Clearly they didn't have enough stick just like last time haha but either way glad it's selling out and that there's interest but still I want the phone so I can switch between it and an iPhone haha.

crazace says:

Its not sold out...

en28so says:

WTF. SO I have unlimited grandfathered LTE on Verizon and would not be able to use this phone. I went ahead and bought a big a### battery for my galaxy nexus, since that is the only issue that I have with this phone. No need to upgrade every year anyways(I bought it cash about 8 months ago).

Does this mean sprint is supported?

Robbzilla says:

Looks like. The main question is, will Sprint allow a phone not purchased through them to be added to their network.

fjitb says:

just ordered mine for Sprint!!!

bold1193 says:

The Google Play Store confirmed Sprint support. Still nothing about Verizon yet :-(

spock123 says:

All US carriers EXCEPT VZ supported.. sorry dude...

esmode says:

Is there a separate version for ATT? I ordered one and then noticed it only said t-mobile and Sprint under supported networks.

Biggnaa20 says:

It'll work on ATT. If you're still curious look up the wireless bands that ATT uses and compare them to the Nexus 5.

That's why I left sorry @$$ Verizon for AT&T!

icebike says:

It may get it later, but for now I suspect that Verizon is still in Google's Penalty Box for their shenanigans with prior Nexus releases.

major payne says:

JonK says:

More like Verizon gives a rats @$$ about the N5 if they can't pre-load their crap software on it, lock the bootloader, and control updates.

Dplymkr88#AC says:

Yep which is why once my N5 arrives I will be a former Verizon customer. People love to moan about Verizon's policy but refuse to jump ship. I'm out Big Red!

mayconvert says:

THIS. Verizon sucks and the only way to make your voice heard is LEAVE them.
I worked at Verizon and kept my AT&T plan while working there instead of using their half price plans.

HAHAHAHAHA ditto. FU VZW! HAHAHAHAHA!

jeddo45 says:

I bought it baby!

Posted by the man who makes things happen...

hmmm says:

Hmmm, I wonder how they will address the CDMA? Will it work like the iPhone in that you could buy it through Google and still activate it on Sprint or will the Sprint variant again be $200 on contract and $550-$600 full price?

ken512 says:

If I have an update do u still pay full price if I go with playstore

Posted via Android Central App

bold1193 says:

Most likely if you want to use your update, you will have to hope that your carrier offers it through their store rather than the Google Play Store.

Yes, the Play Store does not work directly with any carriers. It only provides devices that support specific networks. You will have to pay full price for this device, or (if the carrier even does decide to sell it through their own channels) you will have to pay their jacked up price for the phone with you subsidy. If your contract is about to be up, I suggest just buying this phone and switching to T-mobile (if it's available in your area) so that you aren't paying that subsidy every month.

Yeah,just placed my order as well.

Just ordered the 32GB in black. :D

Warren Tom says:

Just ordered mine...I hope it works on Verizon.

cpuangel says:

I would assume it won't work on verizon. If it technically does I would think they'd prevent it from activating.

Warren Tom says:

I'm on hold with Google. I hope it works on Verizon so I don't have to cancel my order....Feeling totally bummed....

TyrellCorpse says:

It doesn't support VZW LTE band.

JDStone1 says:

Yes it does...well, it supports Band 4, which Verizon just launched earlier this month. So probably limited coverage.

Chondog says:

Just get the LG G2 on Verizon. Its very close in specs to the Nexus and even beats it in some other categories. I love it.

P.S. And don't listen to those grumblers who say that LG's skin is crap. The UI is quite useful. I'm betting that most of those grumblers never even used the G2.

hmmm says:

Yeah, I want it on Sprint but Sprint has never let you bring your own phone except the iPhone. I would need confirmation before buying outside the carrier or authorized retailer on CDMA.

Deke218 says:

Sprint has it for $149 on contract after a $50 rebate and it's on the Spark network.

And it's only the 16gb version. Not interested.

rjrobins says:

It does NOT work on Verizon. The CDMA band that Verizon uses was not put in this device. The LTE would work but you couldn't place calls nor would Verizon acknowledge the device on their network. Sorry. Get an LG G2 and root - it's a better choice.

lakaw says:

It will not...

Verizon. Sigh.

abausch says:

No Verizon!! The Verge says: "It will work across a wide array of carriers — in the US, it will work on everything except Verizon."

Umm... that's what everyone has been saying all along. This cannot be a surprise at all.

iowabeakster says:

For those who haven't been paying attention the last number of years:

The Nexus is still the "development" prototype model android phone, even if the last couple versions have sold well to the general consumer also. In being a development model, it needs to get updates without delay or interference from the carrier. And Verizon has iron-fist/totalitarian policies about updates, and slug-like speed.

So no, no nexus on verizon. At least you've got coverage in many places that you'll never visit (and outrageous prices everywhere, because there is little competition in those sparsely populated areas).

abausch says:

Actually, Verizon gives me coverage in MANY places I visit, where my husband's Sprint phone gets zero bars. BUT my contract is up, so who knows. I wish some carrier in Portland would step up and have as good a coverage here as Verizon.

crazace says:

I have always had outstanding coverage with sprint in Portland. On my Blackberry, EVO OG and EVO LTE.

Verizon's LTE Bands are supported. Their bands are 13 & 4. Band 4 is supported, so its possible for the phone to come out for Verizon.

No. Just no.

VERY few markets have Band 4 LTE support on VZW at this time.

TallyHo says:

Sorry, it doesn't work that way. There is no Verizon CDMA support, so you couldn't use the vice part. Plus, you couldn't even activate it. That and band 4 is so limited right now, you most likely wouldn't even have LTE coverage.

Deke218 says:

And it's possible Bruce Lee and Jim Kelly will star in Lethal Weapon 9... It could happen.

I'm debating the same thing going to wait for battery reviews and camera opinions before I sell the G2 and get this, The G2 battery is amazing and the camera is probably the best on android but will wait and see. I can only imagine how much better the battery will be on the G2 with 4.4.

Im in on it too. Been waiting for this to ditch both Big Red and my aging Rezound.
Black 32 GB too bad the covers and bumpers aren't available yet.

doitlarge says:

who you going with service wise since leaving big red?

It may sound ridiculous but Im jumping to T-mobile. Currently I have 3 smartphones and a dumbphone on Verizon. Holding onto the unlimited data. Since I travel a LOT out of the country mostly China these days and T-mobile now offers unlimited data plus free international roaming (or if its too slow, just pop a local SIM card in)then the 2.5 GB tethering free of charge... Im all over it.. My bill is going to drop from 270.00 a month to about 170.00 a month. Thats 1200.00 a year I get to keep in my pocket. My work provided phone is on Verizon and will remain that way so dropped calls aren't really an issue. Verizon does have the best service area and the fastest data near where I call home but there is plenty that I will not miss.. Bloatware and slow updates being top of the list...
Back when I got my Rezound from Verizon, my wife and I were looking REALLY hard at the Galaxy Nexus. Looking back, we are both glad we went with the Rezound even though its still stuck on 4.0.3 (and its got plenty of power to run 4.3) Verizon nor HTC seem interested in updating it further. Yes I could root it like I did with my old Incredible but you should not have to do that in order to get updates.
I figure with the old Rezound, it will become a movie and music machine for travel.

Still don't see it replacing my moto x as a daily driver. But will be a fun device to switch it up with.

Got a 16GB White and a 32GB Black Yay!!!

morjoie says:

Intriguing. Love the price. I hope it will be a decent phone although made by LG. I really hate that Google is still so stingy on memory. Not surprised about the absence of a micro sd slot, but why can't they offer a 64gb capacity phone for $449 or even $499?? Pleasantly surprised about the improvements made to the camera, especially the image stabilization. Also not surprised that Verizon is out of the loop with this phone - they don't deserve to offer this phone anyway. I have a contract with Verizon until June 2014. By then, I'll be more than ready for a new provider as well as a new phone. I would love to consider the Nexus 5, but no micro sd slot and only 32gb of memory is a sticking point. Can't wait to see what the phone world looks like in 7 months!

Posted via Android Central App

hmmm says:

With shipping, Paypal and eBay fees you're going to have to sell them for like $75 more than retail in order to make like $25 on one. Seems like a lot of hassle for what little profit you are likely to make on a phone that will be widely available.

gmtom1 says:

Yup, listed at $125 over retail. If it doesn't sell, eBay doesn't charge you any fees and I can always return it to Google. But I'm betting the in stock/ordering capability will not last.

I had two in my cart, black 32gb and white 32gb. Hummed and hawed. Looked at specs to see if battery size was same for all versions. Went back to my cart which was empty and when I tried to re-add the phones they were sold out.

I guess I should have shot first and asked questions later. Fortunately I am still using my great Nexus 4 so I can wait a bit to upgrade.

And both my orders for the 32 and 16 white went through even though I never received an email on the 32 and the 16 came back and.....who knows?
I see the status of the orders is slightly different. The 32 has the status as ship by 11/8, but the 16 (that I did get and email for) still says pemding.
I can cancel one if both go "ship by" - or not......

dmaischolar says:

So it looks like Android isn't getting a complete back up feature like iOS...the reddit rumor had me going

I was really hoping Google would bring that to Android because how else does someone back up their apps(without root, which is like 90% of users)? Its so easy on iOS, but for something as advanced as Android, it baffles me that we don't have it...So those of us getting the new N5, without root, I guess we just ditch whatever we accumulated and start over

I wouldn't use Verizon unless they gave me free phones and free service. And I would still keep my AT&T plan even then.

If I have a contract with AT&T at the moment. If I bought the Google play edition, would I be able to put my sim card in it and it would work fine?

lomsha says:

Absolutely.

I want this phone but I am going to wait until people get theirs delivered to see how their experience with it is. Camera etc.

Unfortunately no Play Store access for us down here in New Zealand. Come Google get your act together it's a big world out there.

For those in UK and willing to buy N5 from carphone - don't even bother. Just came back from them. They said it's only available on contract and they probably won't be able to match google's price anyway (why would the website says it's 295 sim free then?). 32 white from google already ordered :)

Just got back from picking up a 16gb in white. Sim free, no problem. CW in Norwich.

WOOOOO NEXUS 5 IN MY HAND DELIVERED AT 8.30 THIS MORNING :)

Is it confirmed that this phone will not work on Verizon?

Google went on to say it wont be available for VZW... Go figure.

I am thinking long and hard whether its worthwhile to ditch VZW and bounce on over to TMobile... Their $70 unlimited everything sounds enticing but I have yet to use their data/voice. I hate to leave VZW for something cheaper and having to come back (and lose my unlimited data)

Which is the smartphone for you? The newly announced Nexus 5 or the ever reliable HTC One?

Thank you for NOT calling it a "Hero phone", ala BGR. Those people have a problem. Just when I thought I couldn't respect them any less...
