Default Single best thing of Nexus 5 over GNEX

Hi guys ,

With Google's latest Nexus 5 out in market , i am sure lot of loyal Gnex users might be looking to buy one. I had a look at N5 at store and had a quick comparison against my rooted gnex running CM11 and was unable to find a standout thing that makes me buy N5 .

Throwing this question to you guys , if you own both N5 and Gnex or planning to buy one , What is the single best thing\feature you like in Nexus 5 over Galaxy Nexus.


Thanks !!

The proper camera (after firmware fix)
The fluidity, yes it just flies
The solid 4 hr gaming I've done on it. The phone doesn't get as hot as the N4 or GNex to when you play graphic heavy games.
Did I forget the 60hr DSP tunneling playback?

But the Nexus 5 can't top the audio quality of the GNex.

From my POV it's amazing. I have nothing against the camera. It takes great shots and I really love it. I'd recommend it to people if I have to.

And battery life is good. Could be better with optimizations and all but gaming wise? It's awesome. Depends on how you use your phone. I can't vouch for your usage and say mine is better lol.

I'm looking forward to a better camera, faster processor, bigger screen, and 1080p. Also, I held one, and it feels great in hand. Just waiting for my Verizon contract to die.

For me....official updates. I can acknowledge the better hardware, but the simple fact that the phone will be getting official updates I think is the best thing. An obvious observation, yes, but it makes it a lot easier than going through XDA threads to decide on a ROM and kernel to use, as well as a proper gapps file (don't get me wrong, I still love the XDA community and the customization through ROMs and kernels for my GNex).

XOOM XOOM!
