    Hey guys, I updated to 5.0 the day it was officially released for the nexus 5 about what 3 weeks-ish ago, a little more, anyway I'm starting to get sick of it...I'm seriously considering re-flashing 4.4.4 IMO..The 5.0 UI is starting to annoy me...at first it was pretty good now it just sucks. Let me know your opinions! thanks :)

    The main reason for owning a N5 is that you can use any rom or theme it to your liking.
    Install a custom Lollipop rom, there are few out there now and there will be more each day.

    5.0 does look childish, it looks like Google didn't take their time with developing 5.0 at all I wish it was a little better

    It's what they call "material design"...basically a flat UI like what Windows Phone and iOS have pushed. A disappointment considering one of the main folks in charge was a major force in creating WebOS. You may not like it --I'm not nuts about it-- but it was well thought out and completely intentional.

    I think everyone will have to agree to disagree on this. Some people love it, some not so much. And that's okay.
