    64gb I really doubt that and chances of getting 8gb are really slim.
    Looking at the history of older nexus phones and tablets and current nexus 7 I really think that we will get 16 and 32 gb.
    If it is based on the G2 then think about it. The international version is 16gb and we have the 32gb version. But forget about the external storage especially since it looks like OTG will be supported.

    Nice! Anybody got an idea what "Slimport capability" is?

    dude thats like the mother of all leaks lol.

    is there anything we don't know? I guess price, announce and release date is all I can think of.

    Also i could get behind a 8 MP OIS cam long as the optics are decent.

    I'd definitely like to know more about the camera. Specifically pixel size.

    Slimport is a technology for outputting HDMI through the USB/charging port. It's built into the N4 (and the 2013 N7) so it's no great surprise to see it on the N5.

    Just went fast through the manual and it it not called SERVICE manual for nothing. Most of what is in there is completely useless for everyone unless you are literally servicing the device for repair.
    One good thing is with the disassemble pics at the end we now know how to remove the battery and put in a bigger. Now we only have to find one.
    Do you think the battery from the G2 will fit?

    Doubt it... the G2 battery is probably physically larger then the N5s

    Also I need to read up on camera sensors a little more, but the Meizu MX3 uses the Sony IMX179 sensor and has 1.4 micron pixels. I'm not sure if all IMX179 sensors have 1.4 pixels or if thats governed by another part of the camera assembly. Still learning about camera tech! Maybe someone more knowledgeable can chime in.

    The pixel size of the GS4 is 1.12 I believe. So if that 1.4 is true, that's awesome. Although I couldn't find anything, so could you send me a link to the Sony IMX179 pixel size?

    Also, do we know the aperture size of the Nexus 5?

    Not too big of a deal breaker for people I hope. If the reason some want a removable battery is so they can carry a spare battery, then there's a solution for sealed batteries: external power pack. :) Not only will it work for the Nexus "5", but it'll work for all phones and future phones to come. Whereas the spare battery method will only work on one phone.

    Two questions:

    1. How do they measure the screen size in that spec? Vertically, only active screen size? (I'm trying to compare it to other models I have here).

    2. I'm thinking of jumping ship from Verizon by getting the unlocked version of this phone. What carrier are you guys thinking is the best one, plan wise? I'm leaning towards ATT Go Phone for $60.

    Screen size is measured across the diagonal.
    As for plan, I'm pretty happy with my T-Mobile 30 dollar plan on my Nexus 4

    1) As mentioned above my post, its diagonally, like a TV is measured.

    2) If I were to leave sprint I'd go to T-Mobile. Ultimately, you're going to want to check coverage maps and look up data speeds in whatever area you're in

    I'm going to use the $70 unlimited plan on T-Mobile. The $30 plan sounds tempting but I need more.
  23. jhawkkw

    jhawkkw Chinchillin'

    Nothing wrong with that. Both plans are awesome

    I thought T-Mobile and their partners already phased that plan out.

    Nope, still on their prepaid website. However it's quite hidden and hard to find. Still on it to this day and it rocks.
