Ordered unlocked 32GB red to use with MetroPCS.
Switching from LG Motion 4G. Technically coming from a Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G, but only had it 3 weeks, and that's only 'cuz I dropped the Motion in the toilet.

Hello everyone!

Sold my iPhone 5s 32gig for a handsome credit from a electronics recycle machine. I purchased the Nexus 5 from LG. Must say I love this phone! So far this has lived up to my expectations in most ways except for a little concern about the rear camera quality, not a major issue for me but a slight concern. Everything else is working like a charm.

Had no concerns about moving away from the "walled" garden as most of my apps were already in the Google Play store, Apple really kind of messed me up with my music though converting everything to MP4.. Still getting over that. I am on the half and half about Google's picture backup. I tried to use Picasa on the web and that was hard to manage. I don't have the ability to use this because they don't have a version yet for Linux. Using dropbox for right now.. My goal is to use all Google products just to learn and experience other software solutions away from the garden.

PS: Chromcast is way cool too!

Joe

Try out MightyText when you get a chance. You can tell it to sync with a folder on your home computer.

If you mean you haven't received the shipping info (it can sometimes say pending even after being shipped), contact them (the number on the email you received confirming the order) and see if they have any explanation. If there is a glitch in their system, they can probably find it and correct it.

No. My front door is even behind a brick fence where it would not have been visible from the street

Not sure how I would have felt if they'd left the package at the door; equal parts happy to have my new phone but also concerned that they left $900 worth of phones out for however many hours until I got home (ordered two, one for me one for wifey).

For those of you in the UK - Carphone Warehouse is selling all three colours of the nexus 5 for 240 (US$399). The red is on pre-order. I just bought a red version from Google Play for 308

Mine finally shipped yesterday night! It is expected to arrive by tomorrow night!!! It is already in my state and fairly close. I am so excited and just a little over a week after I ordered it. (was expected to leave warehouse in 2-3 weeks so it beat that)

Got mine a week ago and so far, loving it

I was even more stoked when I opened the box and found the N5 is a smaller (and almost identical) twin to my '13 Nexus 7 Cool!!

Hey everyone on the N5 forum! I am moving over from the Evo V 4G (aka Evo 3D) on Virgin Mobile, to the 32gb Black N5 with T-Mobile. Yes I am paying nearly double my old bill, but those 4G speeds! And truly unlimited 4G at that. Ordered my phone February 17, was told it would ship on March 7th, and then got confirmation it had been shipped on Feb 22! UPS was kind enough to leave my $450 (after tax) phone on the porch for anyone to snatch, luckily I got home from work and it was still there. Been enjoying it for about a week now. Had it rooted straight out of the box but still rocking the stock ROM with Xposed/GravityBox tweaks.
What I love is just about everything, the sheer speed of the thing is just incredible coming from the Evo 3D. The size of the screen.
What I'm getting used to is having buttons entirely on-screen - a first for me. Also I wasn't fond of the KK retiring the Menu button, but I have to say I'm adjusting to it pretty well. I don't notice it much anymore except in certain apps. I didn't like having the Home bar there ALL THE TIME but that was easily fixed with an Xposed module that forces Immersive Mode at all times (swipe up or down to bring top and bottom bars back on screen).
The only ONE thing that I really hate is not having a charging LED. Every phone I've ever had (even pre-smartphone) has had some kind of notice to tell you that the phone is charging, and when it has finished charging. I think there are some ROMS that have this cooked in and I will be experimenting with different ROMs soon. It'd be cool to have it in a kernel that I could flash to any ROM but I haven't read about any yet. My current sort-of fix is using LightFlow to monitor my battery status. I say sort-of because unless I'm imagining things ever since I installed it my battery life is getting sucked dry. Oh well. Still makes me wonder why Google/LG bothered putting in a brilliant multi-colored LED and then not to use it for anything.

Custom roms can alleviate almost all of those issues for you

If a custom ROM doesn't fix the LED issue, I use Light Manager and it works great. I use it for charging status as well as different colors for different notifications. Totally customizable solution.

Lol...why? This is a I Just got Nexus 5 Thread! And why wouldn't you just wait for the S5

As for me,,just to reiterate ...Nexus 5 at the end of the day is probably the best all around phone hands down for the price,,EVER! Had mine since the beginning and it amazes me all the time when compared to other high end devices, just most recently next to the HTC M8, how a $399 phone competes and actually bests a $650/700 phone is beyond me, but the nexus does surprisingly, and just makes me say to anyone interested, YOU CANT GO WRONG...lol, just my 2 cents.

I thought the same thing. I switched from an s4 to the nexus on launch. Both great phones but there's just something about a nexus. Plus like you said the price for what you get makes me feel like I got a great deal!

Mostly due to the fact that my provider has certain services I need that they would not allow on it since it wasn't bought by them..

Other than that I really liked it, but I like the S4 equally. As for the S5... I just didn't want to pay $700+ for it lol

Ordered mine from google play store this morning and they already shipped it this evening. UPS has scanned it in Kentucky, so it shouldn't take vary long to get to Florida.

Next I'll get to find out how much trouble it is to get Virgin Mobile to give my number to T-Mobile...

Update: Showed up on Apr 3rd (2 days after I ordered it). Seems to be working OK, and even had about a 90% charge out of the box. It was already running 4.4.2, but needed updates to 15 or 20 apps. Won't know for sure the phone works till I get the SIM card.

I ordered the 32GB version, and the Storage setting reports 26.76GB of total space with 25.98GB available.

I ordered a black 16GB model from the Play Store that a friend will be bringing me from the US in a few weeks. I'm getting antsy! It will get rooted first thing, and then I'll have the burden of choosing a custom kernel and ROM for it.

I ordered the 32GB White one last week. It arrived last night. The thing is amazingly gorgeous. Now it sits on my desk waiting for my contract to run out so that I can activate it and actually use it.

First post from my Nexus 5. So far loving it

Edit:
Ok, one hour is up. Time to root it

Rooting now... Am I the only one that loves the new phone smell?




FREEDOM!
