Nexus 5 white

Looking for a little more flair? A white Nexus 5 may be for you

The LG Nexus 5 is finally on sale, and yes, it comes in white. No matter the storage size choice you make you'll have the option to get a different colored back on the phone, and for some it'll be a better-looking option. There's a slight materials difference between the black and white models, with the white one being a little "harder" plastic on the back and having glossier plastic sides, but other than that you're basically getting the same phone in a different color. Hit the break for a photo gallery of the Nexus 5 in white.

Black for me, please.

that's what she said

copatoke says:

not really digging the white speaker grill, but the rest looks fantastic

TheDroidKid says:

Yeah that is a bit odd

If had realised the speaker grille was white, I would not have bought white. I hate it. Every time l look at the phone, its like the LED is on

ellopr says:

Use a black sharpie and color it.

Vissionary says:

Why would you think that? The LED is on the bottom of the phone and flashes...

dante501 says:

I also dropped Verizon. Former Verizon GNex user. Get my black 32 GB tomorrow night in the mail and then headed to AT&T to see Allie where she will hook me up with a no contract plan...she is hot too :D

mrfochs says:

+1
Dropped Verizon when I had the GNEX and bought the N4. Went with T-mobile for the last year but moved to suburbs of Philly and had nearly no signal. Moved to the AT&T SIM on StraightTalk and still pay less than half of my old bill.

alfiej says:

Ew. That speaker.. My trypophobia....: (

Vantana says:

You just ruined this phone for me. I didn't have a problem with the earpiece standing out until now.

return_0 says:

No, he only ruined the white version of the phone for you :)

Posted from my pure Google Nexus 4 using the AC app.

Vantana says:

I'll have to do as your name says and get a black one instead. And buy a white backplate later.

zhecht says:

Sharpie

Vantana says:

Won't that void warranty?

esmode says:

I ordered black, but the white was tempting. All too often I see fancy white phones tinged in grey after they've been used for a while.

soldierblade says:

Andrew, do you reckon the difference in plastics between the black and white may be to keep the white from discoloring? Sort of the same way the white N4 had glossy sides rather than rubberized.

Posted via Android Central App

Yeah that's likely the reason. They know that soft touch white really isn't possible without it getting dirty over time.

kitman8888 says:

Does it mean the white one, in your opinion, is not prone to get dirty?

We don't know at this point. But we hope that they did some kinda testing.

judasmachine says:

Andrew, here several weeks later how has it held up?

ken512 says:

Nice.I like ....got two white ones:)

Anyone having problems receiving MMS?

TheDroidKid says:

I don't have my Nexus 5 yet, however what carrier?

Att. Both hangouts and go SMS aren't downloading MMS.

whelmar says:

Check you apn...

unglued94ta says:

Have you double check your APN settings

Posted via Android Central App

That's what I was thinking.

Posted via Android Central App

AT&T GoPhone MMS just worked out of the box.

What are the correct APN settings? I have found different ones online and There were two already on the phone but none have worked.

Posted via Android Central App

The most basic AT&T "Phone" APN seems to work just fine.

I think that was the default one it was set to. Which didn't work.

Posted via Android Central App

All i can confirm is that it works for me without any tweaking or setup. MMS shows up right in the Hangouts app.

jeffreytz says:

No panda phone for me! But for a white phone its not bad, at least they didn't make the front bezels white (I never understand that!).

MarkSeven says:

I actually think that woulda looked better (even tho I prefer black myself)..

gallantghost says:

Not normally a fan of white phones but this looks really good. I wish it was available here.

neonworm says:

Ehh, I like the black one better. It looks much more clean and slick.

ryanparedez says:

As others have said, not really a fan of colored devices, but this white one is pretty sexy.

dammitcubs says:

I kinda wish this was yellow. LOL...plasti-DIP!!!!

Duncan1982 says:

Black is always my go to, but this aint to bad at all.

Nice. Hope I win that giveaway

Posted with Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0

But enough about the talented actor Neil Patrick Harris, what's your opinion of the phone?

This is why I left the replies when I took out the trash post. :)

He wasn't referring to you.

Duncan1982 says:

Yeh i wasnt sure as it was a reply to my post but thought it may be in reference to the it looks gay post which as stated is a bit beyond daft lol

getbretweir says:

Get why the black is there, makes sense, just looks kinda awkward IMO .... I prefer a more homogeneous look.

Posted via Android Central App

Got mine this am in white and I love it

a2Squard says:

Oh yeah, DEFINITELY getting white!

Squee! Mine's in Newark waiting for delivery tomorrow a day early.

aruntejay says:

You can never complain on black.But with white only a few handsets are worthy for it.I'd say nexus 5 is 50% white worthy.

Duncan1982 says:

The more i see it the more i like it, always opt for black option as they tend to be more slick but this aint bad and i think only the Nexus 5 can pull it off lol

tdizzel says:

Wesley Snipes doesn't believe you should bet on this particular version.

NoNexus says:

Well we know how that ended don't we?

Posted via Android Central App

Can't wait for my 32gb white.. Come on Tomorrow!

closers7 says:

My 32 gb white will arrive tomorrow too. All fired up!

radofone says:

I usually like white phones but with the nexus 5 I wud prefer the black version...another thing I would really like to get my hands on one of these but I live in Jamaica and I am unable to order one from the playstore, any suggestions please as to how I could acquire one??? thanks

Check Swappa.com. There are like 30 on sale right now. Some ship internationally.

radofone says:

ok kool thanks im gonna try that

I like the black one over the white.. If you feel like you should have got the white option then just slam a white nexus 5 back plate and your done :P

nickmiller71 says:

Not a fan of the whole black white thing. If it was completely white I'd be sold.

Reeper says:

Why for the love of all things holy can we still not get a fully white Nexus device? I thought we had this figured out by now.

ElectronZ says:

My 32gb white N5 should deliver tomorrow (day early). Still not sure if I want to switch from my HTC One to N5. I love the design of the One with the metal feel. But I want the Nexus experience. Maybe I should have ordered the Google Edition HTC One.

NoNexus says:

Don't quote me and do the research but you can turn your One into a GPe One if I remember right

zdn1042 says:

Holy cow, that looks nice. I think this is the first time I'm even considering a different color than black.

epik277 says:

Id rather have this black front with the white dot, than have a white front and 4 black dots.

quailallstar says:

The word NEXUS should have been made in the google colors for both versions. Just an idea.

Impulses says:

Wouldn't be cheap, and it'd look tacky IMO. I ordered a black one, set to arrive Thursday (7th) even tho the original "ship by" date was the 8th (it shipped today instead)... Might've ordered white if I had given it a better look tho, I hate all white phones but I dig the oreo look. Doesn't matter much, going in a case either way and black looks better thru the TPU (plus white one would possibly look odd with a red case, black bezel, and white earpiece).
