I just got my Nexus 5 guys. Its an awesome device. I love the galaxy nexus. But if you need to update, the Nexus 5 is the way to go.

Well it depends on your setup and eyes. But simple things like flicking around the home screen, scrolling in widgets lag on the note 3 but not on the nexus 5 if you put them side by side.

Then again the note 3 I seen might be a different variant from yours, which also probably comes with a different regional software too.

I'm still considering this one myself, did it take you a long time to get used to the extra device width? I'm thinking it might put quite a bit of extra strain on your thumb when using it single-handed.

I have no issues with it. I like how it feels. But if that's something you may have an issue with, I'd suggest going into a store where they have it on display and check it out in person.

Thanks, I'll give that a shot again, last time I couldn't quite decide.

How is the battery life, in your experience? Since I have the extended battery it's been really difficult to let it go but would it make a super big difference?

Battery life is fine for me. Compared to the galaxy nexus, its a lot better. I can get through a whole day easily with the Nexus 5. Something I couldn't do with the gnex. Everyone's going to have a different experience though.

I smashed my screen, replaced it with a Xiaomi Mi3 because it has Gorilla Glass 3.
