Thing 1: Still more on the Nexus 5

Thing 2: Still more on Android 4.4 KitKat

Thing 3: Anything that's not Nexus or KitKat

People pan the Note 3 for being plastic. The Nexus 5 should get the same criticism for it's poor materials. Also, the Nexus 5's phone and battery life are horrible. I guess that's what Google ends up with when they try to cut corner$.

Note 3 unlocked price $799.
Nexus 5 unlocked price $350—$400.
And having owned a note 2 and a Nexus 4. LG build quality is better.
Do you own a Nexus 5? No. Therefore your assessment of the battery is worthless.

Truth son.

Isn't complaining that the Nexus 5 doesn't have some of the MotoX's features like complaining that the naxus 5 doesn't have Touchwiz. The Nexus phones are about simplicity. If you want those extras then you know which phone to buy.

It is. People keep getting Google and Motorola mixed up. Two separate companies, owned by to same group. They are not interchangeable

For me, the nexus 5 us about elegance.

I've always aligned with minimalist style (Google seems to as well) and this phone is just that. A clean, smooth Google experience.

No gimmicks or neat add-ons. Just a minimal device as a platform for pure KitKat.

I think the most important thing to take away from this is Jerry reads Vogue.

jdbii says:

Loved Jerry's opinion and joking about Verizon.

NoNexus says:

It is bad, not n4 bad but worse than most of the competition.

Dude come on "bad". I have seen the test shots. They are not "bad" pictures. Some are actually "good" depending on the situation. But nonetheless they get the job done. I don't need my phone for artsy shots.. That's why I have a dslr. Any who all that being said this dude is still a troll of trolls.

I am a smartphone user and I've some good experience with the Samsung galaxy S5. Your writing concept also very handy and enjoyable to me. But, perfect one match for the wireless charger for galaxy s5 is smartphone.
