  • 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.

  • huh?
  • 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. Posted via Android Central App
  • It is. People keep getting Google and Motorola mixed up. Two separate companies, owned by to same group. They are not interchangeable Posted via Android Central App
  • 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. Posted via Android Central App
  • They way I feel. This phone is clean. Posted via Android Central App
  • I totally agree jakedsnake!!! Posted via Android Central App
  • I think the most important thing to take away from this is Jerry reads Vogue.
  • Loved Jerry's opinion and joking about Verizon.
  • camera is awful, just awful...
  • Troll. |❌_❌|
  • It is bad, not n4 bad but worse than most of the competition. Posted via Android Central App
  • 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. |❌_❌|
  • Troll much? Posted via Android Central App
  • 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, http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00FPFM4AY?tag=hawk-future-21&ascsubtag=UUacU... perfect one match for the wireless charger for galaxy s5 is smartphone.
