Nexus 5

Orders are shipping — is one of them yours? Let us all know in this week's poll

Finally, all the crazy rumors and speculation is over. The Nexus 5 — and Kit Kat — are "officially real." You can probably tell if you've been on the Internet in the past 30 or so hours.

Everyone is talking about it, including Alex who was lucky enough to get one in his hands early this morning. For most of us though, we have to experience it all from what the lucky few are telling us. Which, so far, is looking awful damn good for the most part. Alex tells me it's pretty much the best Android phone ever. Alex knows his stuff, and has plenty of experience with some great phones. He has me excited.

I goofed. I was sure I would be able to go out Friday morning and spend a little extra to buy one retail. I was wrong, and now I have to wait. Hopefully, not too many of you did the same, but we're about to find out. We've got a poll — you'll find it in the sidebar to the right or after the break. Take a second and answer it, then get in the comments and discuss.

Where's the no because Verizon sucks selection?

Posted via Android Central App

That would be No. That Verizon sucks goes without saying :P

J/K. I wish they could get one to you guys that want them. 

Verizon doesn't suck. It's the only carrier that can push a signal into all the places I go..in Los Angeles for Pete's sake. T-Mobile's not even close.

What good is the coolest new mobile phone if you have to use it on a crappy
network?

TurboFool says:

Weird. I live and work in LA and get great signal with T-Mobile. And Verizon does suck. Doesn't mean they don't have great signal. But their business policies are horrible. They could have provably the best network on the planet and I would still be unwilling to do business with them.

I'll stick with a company that people claim has a bad network (it hasn't in my experience) but has fantastic policies and respect for their users.

udazavlanje says:

Vzw covers most of the states the best - both LTE and phone calls. I drive cross country for living and I'm still hoping and testing other networks so I can finally drop them. Nothing on horizon yet. T-Mobile is good only in the city areas. And when people say LA they probably consider all surrounding areas where Verizon dominates again.
1 vzw
2. Att
3.Sprint
4. T-Mobile

I live in Orlando and my Verizon connection sucks. Lots of gray bars. T-mo HPSA is as fast at VZ's LTE

yankeesusa says:

Very true. I used to have Verizon and now I have Sprint and recently just got a line with T-Mobile. Sprint is decent in Orlando and T-Mobile is good too. My wife's hspa+ T-Mobile phone gets 6-9mbps on a slow day. My brother in laws Verizon lte phone used to get 15 tplo 22mbps and now it barely goes over 6mbps.

Verizon definitely sucks they are the carrier that couldn't push out basic stock updates from the jump street when they got the Galaxy Nexus December 15th 2011.

They made the Verizon Galaxy Nexus the WORST Nexus experience ever and they are getting exacly what they deserve.

Problem with Verizon is they are to big for their britches. They have poor updates on all handsets and a sutured slow LTE network at best.

Verizon is sadly overrated and pathetic with crappy bloatware.
Google is definitely tired of Verizon and it's bull..

I gladly KICKED Verizon to the curb for Tmobile since June 2012 and haven't looked back.

Verizon isn't what people trick themselves into believing. They are much worse.

Not when you have the Note 3 on AT&T. Worst phone ever. Ordered my Nexus 5, going to take it for a spin and see if I like it better than the Note 3. I'm sure battery life won't be the same, but I'm not a HEAVY user so it shouldn't be a big deal. We shall find out.

squiddy20 says:

1. "poor updates on all handsets"? By and large, Verizon does just as well as any other carrier. And that's saying something considering they have a larger device selection. Go take your pitiful, unfactual fanboy BS somewhere else.
2. I had no idea carriers could have a "sutured slow LTE network". Protip: try proofreading your posts *before* you post them, and you might actually look like less of a idiot.
3. "Verizon isn't what people trick themselves into believing." Sooo... It doesn't have the largest nationwide data or voice network? It doesn't have generally the fastest network? It doesn't have the highest rated customer service of the big four carriers? By all means, try and elaborate as to what all these people are being "tricked" into believing.

Verizon actually roams on Sprint here. Let that sink in for a minute. Their service is so bad, they won't sell you a phone.

My anecdotal evidence cancels out yours.

Besides, i said I was kidding. 

spielnicht says:

For the love of God, enough of the Verizon has the best signal BS. I carry my work provided Verizon phone alongside my personal AT&T phone and never noticed a difference in the signal.

schrack3000 says:

I love all this anecdotal evidence where people think that because they had a specific experience it therefore must be true for everyone nation wide.

spielnicht says:

That works both ways son.

yankeesusa says:

Verizon does cover many places. But their prices and customer service do suck. If you live in an area that has service from all major companies than the smart thing to do is pick the best one at the lowest price. In my area that's the case. So I got rid of high priced restrictive Verizon and now have T-Mobile and I love it.

the1m.polo says:

Millions on millions of people disagree with you all... obviously according to their ratings..and churn rate ... Does Verizon sucks for phone geeks? .....maybe so.... But then again u just wanna break ish and then ask them to replace it .... So I don't think they care... I'm on Verizon...but I dont say they suck... I just understand their business and goals ... So when my contact is up I may switch to AT&T because it's the only service that can possibly handle the business man side of me...need a solid signal everywhre and the phone geek side of me.... But I won't sit here and say Verizon sucks.... They're a great company .. that's like when peopled say Jordan, Kobe, or LeBron sucks because they play for the opposition.... They don't suck they're just not on your team

udazavlanje says:

They suck for a much bigger reason -
They want to have a monopoly on Internet !
Now they are going after FCC for not allowing them to control data traffic. You can read about it everywhere. If they win, that very moment I'm dropping my grandpa unlimited plan and going with any provider who has different ideals.

Orion78 says:

Lmao no its not. Stop comparing Verizon to sports athletes. Jordan is awesome.....Verizon is a evil company. They suck....end of story.

yankeesusa says:

Great point. Overall Verizon offers the best signal over any coverage, partly because they charge so much and can use that money to improve. Att on the other hand for a while just took the money and didn't do anything. It's not until recently that they started expanding their lte. But in the end it's whatever works for you. Luckily for me att, Verizon and T-Mobile have great coverage here. Att and T-Mobile have the fastest data here where I live. Verizon is 3rd and Sprint is horribly slow.

Yep, Black 32GB! Pretty excited! Confirmation email say shipping by Nov 8th which is great cause I am out of town for first part of next week.

Check your email.I got a ship date of NOV 8TH also,and I just got a email 2 minutes ago saying my nexus5 has shipped!!

jonathan3579 says:

Did you order 16GB or 32GB? I ordered my 32GB only 10 minutes after it appeared and I still haven't gotten a shipping confirmation yet. :(

Although it says shipping by Nov. 5

Same Nov 5, got it maybe like 30 minutes after it was up

Fillyo says:

Same here, I ordered a white 32 gb in the first half hour or so and got an email 2 hours ago it shipped from Kentucky. Play Store status on my account has not been updated.

jonathan3579 says:

I finally got a shipping confirmation at 3:00AM this morning although UPS' site hasn't updated to say when I'll be receiving it.

What time was the nexus 5 released in the play store? Central time.

MedioGringo says:

That's exactly what I'm waiting to find out as well. Let's hope Jerry or Phil take lots of sample pics with it.

It's the big question lately. I am sure their will be a huge breakdown on the camera.

|❌_❌|

flattie says:

Obviously it's a subjective thing, but I've found the N5 camera to be mediocre. It seems to me to be some way below the best camera phones on the market (top end Nokia's and latest IPhone). To my eyes, it seems that the camera is one of the areas that have been scaled back in order to make sure the core specs are top line, at a ridiculously low off-contract price.

The thing about cameras is, no matter how much you spend they all process information in their own way. Some cameras will automatically bump up the saturation while others will automatically lower it. When I take a photo with my ILC I will still have to process it to make it show up digitally as close to how I remember it and the emotions I felt while taking the photo.

I've taken some photos with my GNexus and edited in Snapseed that look absolutely wonderful. Photography is a skillset that not everyone has, and even fewer people know how to edit an image. I suspect the auto-awesome and new photos app on kitkat are going to help a lot of people take better pictures with their phones (if they care to).

Nexus 4 - CM10.1.3

I'll probably sell my N4 and buy the N5 at some point because it finally has everything I want in a smartphone that I want. 1080p, LTE, good camera. The camera is REALLY important to me though. I'll wait and see how 4.4 performs on my N4 and if I'm content with it I'll just roll with it till N5 (2014)

Awaiting for T-Mobile to offer it through their website or retail stores and I will get the Black 32gb model then. The wife and I are holding on to our N4's until then.

cubskru says:

T-Mobile has always offered the Nexus at a much higher price than through Google Play but if you need a payment plan or insurance then going through them makes sense.

codeda says:

Actually if you get it from the play store you can still get insurance on it through T-Mobile. Did that with my nexus 4

Posted via Android Central App

I went into T-mobile today to get a micro sim for my Nexus 5. As of right now, they said they cannot insure the phone, but said i might be able to when the phone is available through them. scary thought that they might not insure it. If not, i might go through square trade...but i want to see what T-mobile says first

I ordered the black 32gb, but I have to wait til November 15th. The shipping went from November 8th to the 15th in just 2 minutes!!

Impulses says:

I ordered the 32GB one in black as well, got the confirmation email at 3pm EST and as of tonight it's still saying it'll ship by Nov 8... I usually don't like paying extra for storage, even if it's just $50 (still mildly steep for a 16GB upgrade IMO), but I prefer having more than 7-8GB of music (typically carry around double that) and I figured the 32GB one might be in less demand... Might've been wrong on the second count!

I was very very tempted. I had it up right on release 32gb black. Just couldn't in good conscience pull the trigger.

|❌_❌|

If only I could get reception on any other carrier than Verizon I'd have ordered one for sure, but that's what happens when you live in middle-of-nowhere Nebraska :'(

crazace says:

I hear AT&T partners have great coverage in mid of no where Neb...

Duncan1982 says:

Alex knows his stuff and has me excited whatever happened to individuality, Im again not taking anything away from the Nexus 5 and with stock android 4.4 Kitkat i can get with the buzz. I personally dont follow the hype i cant see anything other than the new operating system that sky rockets the Nexus 5 to prime spot.

Their are many great devices recently been launched, The G2, Note 3, Apple 5s, Sony Z1, Nokia 1020 ect that are all great devices in their own right.

I personally have opted for the Note 3 as it best seves my design tastes and requirements and is a great device, is it above the Nexus 5 i cant make that assesement as i dont obviously have the nexus 5.

However even if i did that would be based on personal opinion and that doesnt change when a real tech geek does the same its still his opinion.

A great device im sure google and for the price v specs wow on that aspect yes its a winner.

impulse101 says:

Thanks for the info, its fun reading comments from all the people trying to justify their purchase of phones other than the N5 at double the price. Sorry but we arent going to pretend a note 3 with touchwiz that wont get kitkat for 9 months is as good as the n5

pajamas95 says:

So mad at myself...had one in the cart 5 minutes after it was released, and then removed it...now when I got it, it isn't shipping till the 22nd :( So mad at myself for not ordering immediately

mgianni19 says:

I am in the SAME boat. I was about to pull the trigger and then thought I was being stupid since I just got the Note 3, so I slept on it, got it the next day and now it's not shipping until the 22nd. I really hope that they update it and ship it earlier.

Not yet but I will when I get paid on Wednesday. Hopefully I can grab one up. Any word when Best Buy or RadioShack will carry the Nexus 5?

jerimiahy says:

Doesn't Radio Shack only sell Verizon and Sprint.

I'm pretty sure best buy only ever sold the tmobile variant.

Last I had checked Google was the only way to get the Nexus 4 no contract.

Orion78 says:

Google already confirmed Best Buy will get the Nexus 5.

And it is $799 when best buy gets it in January

Orion78 says:

Ummmm no. Nexus 7 is priced the same as the Play Store. So Nexus 5 should be the same.... Hopefully.

I stand corrected. I just checked out Best buy and it will indeed be a whopping $800 without contract! WTF! Play Store it is.

Long time blackberry user, Waited for the nexus 5 before making the switch. But still cant decide.

Nexus 5 or Moto x??

MotoX pros, Size is appealing, same as my Z10. And I like those on screen notifications. Touchless is cool too. I have faith the android update process will continue to improve and the MotoX will get Kit Kat asap.

Nexus. Well they say once you go 5" you dont go back. So size can be a pro or a con. I cant decide ahead of useing it personally, unfortunately I cant afford both. I think this is the main deciding factor of mine.

Soon as roger gets both phones in store Ill go hold them and go by feel I think. Since the common advice is they are both good...

no microsd = no buy for me.. plus, i'm very happy w/my Xperia Z1. :) every phone should be waterproof, esp ones that have sealed batteries and no microsd slots.

Waterproof phones cost a lot more, and have tradeoffs for the water proofing. For instance, the Sony Xperia Z1 has a pretty lousy mic and speaker on it, because they are openings that Sony has tried to waterproof. I don't need/want a waterproofed phone, and would rather have an option if I don't.

jimbo says:

Probably because they have smartphones with dull cartoon contrast color amoled displays, insufficient internal memory, crappie cameras, and dysfunctional UI's.

If it isn't obvious it is the price. It's a whole lotta phone for a heck of a low price.

|❌_❌|

Duncan1982 says:

£339 is a great price point and i can throw little in the way of an argument, That said the cheapest Note 3 here in the UK is £450 so lets assume the Nexus 5 has an Sd card slot and the avarage price for a 64gb Sd card is £50, So that would take the Nexus 5 to £389 and the Note 3 to the more expensive £500. With the same storage. Yeh thats a £111 saving. There is a wait a minute here the Note 3 is 5.7" and removable battery, So if Google upped the Screen to the equivelent to The Note 3 do you think then that they would still have that same price point? let alone the extra 1gb of ram. Point is that it really isnt the bargain you first think if you look at the bigger picture lol

But thats me being pedantic of course. The Nexus is im sure a great device and one that i am most certainly considering myself, but next year around feb when i can pick it up for around the £250ish then what a good deal that will be :-)

impulse101 says:

The Note 3 has Bloatwiz and runs like a bloated dog compared to the N5. Bloatwiz has a bunch of useless features and slows down the phone, plus you wont get 4.4 probably until late spring, lol

Its the best phone ever made maybe that is why? Every spec is better than your phone.

Duncan1982 says:

Every Spec is better than the Note 3 hmmm lets do a spec comparison shall we. And we will Start with the Nexus 5.

5" Full ips Hd screen at 446ppi or there abouts.

Qualcom Snapdragon 800 cpu @2.3ghz

Andreno 330 Gpu

2gb Ram

16gb 32gb Storage non expandable

8mp Camera.

Android 4.4 Kitkat.

--------------------------------------

Note 3 specs

Qualcomm Snapdragon 800cpu @ 2.3ghz

Andreno 330 Gpu

3gb Ram

32gb & 64gb expandable

13mp Camera with 4k video capture

4.3 Jelly Bean.

So my question how can you make a comment like you did?

Answer- Because you just enjoy posting random pish on more than one forum no doupt also claiming to know it all as you may have owned more than one smartphone.

Their is no doupt that the Nexus 5 will be a great device but stop slagging the note by repeating the same old shit bloatwiz samoled blah blah blah, i have NO LAG what so ever and multi task, watch video gaming, email and have music on web ec ect no matter what i throw at it not even a stutter so where is your bloatwiz now? And Lag? I personally like millions of others enjoy having features eg S-Pen, eye scroll, Smart pause and many more, i may not use them all the time but nice to know they are there for if and when i do.

So stop talking pish.

^THIS ... the only thing persuasive to me about the N5 is the fact that it has KitKat.. and I really just want the hangouts update anyways so it's probably not even Kitkat just the hangouts part. My phone pretty much does everything this phone does already, with amazing specs.

jimbo says:

Going to cool my jets. Not get caught up in the frenzy.

If I wasn't in this admirable position, I would, based on favorable camera review, be purchasing the Nexus 5 when a midnight metallic blue back cover color became available.

TauSigmaNova says:

No, I wish. Still have a nexus 4 from last year but I may get a new one NEXT year.

viperhrdtp says:

I ended up ordering it as soon as the pages lauched. Had to adjust the URL to get to the page for the white Nexus. Pretty excited. Device shipped from the city I'm in but it's still going to be monday before it shows up. =\ +1 for Saturday delivery being offered. Would have been sweet to have it to play with for the weekend.

jerimiahy says:

No. I think I'm done with Android...

Seems to be the going trend that phones are getting bigger and bigger. The nexus 4 was pushing it but I still loved the phone. Nexus 5 is just too big. Can't do one handed operation.

S4 Mini?
HTC One Mini?
Droid Mini?

galfert says:

Not a valid excuse. The N5 and the N4 are the same width. They gave the N5 a bigger screen but the bezel is smaller.

I had to go into a stupid meeting at work at 2pm EST and when it let out at 3:45 EST I ran to my computer and after several minutes of indecision about color I decided on 32gb white. Ordered at 3:56 PM EST and my confirmation email said shipping on 8/15.

I'm glad I chose white. Looks like it will be rare.

Wtf, I ordered a 16gb black within the first 5 minutes of it being announced. Says it should leave the warehouse by Nov 5. I wonder why ones that said Nov 8 are already shipping...anyone else that got a 16 GB black that has received a shipping conformation?

I'm wondering the same thing. The only reason I can think of is Billing=shipping address were some sort of priority

It looks really cool but i'm a year into contract with an s3 which I still really like and can't quite justify dumping and I'd probably get nothing for selling it. and maybe look at tmobile at that stage too.

I want the Nexus 5 so bad but I'm still on an unlimited plan on Verizon and don't ever want to give that up. Will Verizon ever get the Nexus 5?

astarling10 says:

nope. Verizon isn't getting the nexus 5.

TheMimic12 says:

Probably not. The Moto X is the closest you'll get for now. The moto x should be getting kit Kat soon, so if you can swallow the unsubsidized price, get that or the droid maxx

i like HTC one alot better. plus nothing special about the nexus 5 just normal phone. wish HTC Has Made the Nexus im sure it would have been better than LG

I ordered the Nexus 5 yesterday but then found out that it doesn't work on Verizon. So I cancelled my order and bought the LG G2 instead. Bummed....

Ordered. Set to ship on the 22nd. Still on the fence whether this phone is too big for me. If Moto releases Moto-maker to T-mo AND chops the price down before then, I may cancel my order.

I ordered my Nexus 5 and I've tracked it to 4 miles away at the delivery depot at 05:58 this morning. If lucky I may receive it today! One thing is I can't find information on is the notification light. I found it very useful on my Galaxy Nexus but don't know if it's on the Nexus 5 or 4 for that matter!

It is on the N4 and also the N5.

Google needs to start equipping Nexus devices with better batteries, this is the main potential issue I see with the Nexus 5.

I don't know why, but Google seems to have shipped black models before the white ones (in Canada). I ordered mine at 2:03 and people that ordered the phone after me (in black)are already getting theirs shipped. If someone knows why please tell.

Mistic92 says:

Where is answer "No, I can't in my country ;("

No, there's nothing wrong with my flip phone... stays charged all week; no ripoff data plan required; fits easily in any pocket; outstanding voice quality.

heathroi says:

well that was pointless.

Pointless to you, maybe, but not to me. It's why I didn't order the Nexus 5.

Watcherseye says:

I ordered a Black 32 GB @ like 2:18 EST on announce day. And it still hasn't shipped. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to which are shipping except for maybe choosing 2 day shipping over ground. I went with ground, while I've seen several people who've chosen 2 day has had their's ship.

jrb363 says:

No because it cost money. :(

Also, I'm happy with my HTC One! :)

imdabold1 says:

In all honesty I wasn't going to buy it. That is until I saw the devices page go live....and then my lovely Nexus 4 was up for sale. I sold it within 4 hours and placed my order for a White 32gb model. I cannot wait to get my hands on it.

Saturn1217 says:

I think you are missing a "not yet" option. I fully intend to buy but I am waiting for the reviews and also yo hear back from others and make sure there are no show stopper bugs. But basically by next year I'll have this phone (even if it is too big).

That would be "No".

Synycalwon says:

Nope, not keen on vanilla Android (or the frequent updates it brings). But regardless of that the sealed embedded battery is an absolute deal breaker.

Quasar says:

Of course I ordered it! I wanted to replace my Galaxy Nexus just as I had when I wanted to replace my Nexus One with the Galaxy Nexus. In two years, I'm sure I'll be buying the 7th generation Nexus, or Nexus 5 2015 as the case may be.

DEman19901 says:

No, but I did save a lot on my car insurance. On a sereios note, I did manage to pre-order a xbox One.

I think the general theme here is this

How disappointed are you that Verizon will never carry a Nexus device ever again

o Don't care about Nexus devices

o Mildly irritated but that's life

o Somewhat pissed but still on my contract getting more pissed.

o Pretty Pissed then I got my phone bill.

o Very Pissed off and my life also sucks

o About to get all Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at my local Verizon store.

Jerry, frankly... As an owner of a Nexus 4, are you gonna spend that money for alittle faster, a little lighter, a little brighter, and a little less fragile?
I do have to pay for my phones. And I won't pay!
Thanks to Google who helped me chossing. 2 hours after they went on sale, stock was dry.
And now 5-6 weeks of waiting.
No sir... I won't buy this phone...

p51d007 says:

No, but, the reason isn't because I don't want one. My 2 year old G Note1 is doing well, but I do plan on getting something, but I NEVER buy a brand new device with basically a dot zero software/firmware. God bless all you early adopters, but I'm waiting for a couple things. Let the "new" wear off, and maybe sometime around black Friday, the "deals" will be around. I'm between a few things...

LG G2
Note 3
Nexus 5
HTC One Max
Sony Xperia Z2 ultra (or whatever its called)
Acer Liquid 2...anyone heard anything about it since September?

Large screen CHOICES! Nice to see

Hoping that I will win, its my only hope

RichieB07 says:

Honestly, having a Nexus 4, the only real attraction for me is the OIS in the camera. I love the screen size on the N4 (it's perfect for me), the camera is decent enough (and with all that 4.4 is bringing to the camera app, hopefully it gets better), and it's still speedy. Yes the new Snapdragon processor would make it faster, but personally I don't need that speed.
