    I ordered a White 32gb version on the 12th coming from an iPhone 5S, should get here on the 17th even though it departed an hour away from me and I chose next day. >.<

    I hope it's the revised one. >.<

    Coming from an iPhone your going to be upset with the camera. Everything else is great!

    4.4.2 is supposed to have fixed the camera problems. If you're coming from an iPhone, there will be some changes to learn but they should be manageable.

    Lucky. Mines stuck in Fort Worth due to the storm from a week ago. They said they're about 16 trucks behind backlogged with about 32,000 packages. They apparently are using rental trucks and hiring more people so hopefully my package will come today or Monday. Still pretty peeved since if it would have been on time I would have had it in my hands about 2 days ago.

    Oh well at least it's not lost.

    I ordered my original Nexus 5 the very moment they were released, chose one day shipping and received it in just 6 days.

    Ordered a second one for my wife earlier this week via one day shipping, it arrived in a lightning fast 3 days.

    Kudos to Google for learning from last year.

    The phones? I simply could not be happier :D



    (Mine is Black, hers is White, both 32GB)

    I got a black 32gb coming from Verizon to t-mobile. Couldn't be happier! Trying to talk the wife into a white nexus but she is stuck on her s3. She fears change. Haha

    Woooooo! Just ordered my 32gb black Nexus 5 today. Selected next day shipping. May be too hopeful, but I'm hoping it processes and ships tomorrow for a Wednesday delivery (day off)! So pumped. Coming from a Galaxy Note 1. Looking very forward to no more AT&T bloat and a phone that is fast as lightning. The camera woes are a bummer... but I think I will manage okay.

    Now to head over to AT&T to pick up that Nokia wireless charger on sale and time to hit Amazon to select a case (though I'll only use it for a month or so before I go naked).

    PUMPED!

    Cheers, everyone.

    Got my phone yesterday, and well worth the wait!

    Great crisp camera, good multitasking and can handle games excellently!

    After waiting a few days and checking the Play store periodically, I became skeptical as to whether or not they had the black 32gb N5 readily in stock. Yesterday I decided to cancel my order and reorder a white 32gb around 3pm. My card was charged a few hours later. I received a shipment notice overnight and it's on the truck for delivery today!

    Woo!

    Well I didn't order my N5.

    I browsed local classifieds and picked up a sealed 16gb black nexus 5 for $350.

    Coming from an HTC one and I'm blown away - missed the stock feel from my gnex!

    Thank you! It was a hard decision to let go of the HTC one but I couldn't be happier now that I have.

    Heading out today to get some ghost armor put on the screen and possibly the body. Just need to find a good wallet style case and then I'll be set.

    Pretty sure that model has the longest wait. I wouldn't worry unless that date comes and goes and still not shipped. Waiting is the hardest part...

    I ordered three of them on the 23rd (for myself, wife, and daughter--we've leaving VZW :D; my son already has an N5, so we're gonna be an N5 family) and it also says they'll leave the warehouse on January 5th.

    Crossing fingers, too.
