Default Finally got mine!

This is hands down the phone I've been waiting for! Perfect screen size with a great processor and stock android. This phone is fantastic. I've had soooo many phones in the past year it's insane. Galaxy note 2 and 3 galaxy s4 htc one Sony xperia z ultra HTC one again galaxy note 3 again and none have made me happy. Alot has to do with ask the bloat that those phones have. I don't know how to root devices and play with the software. All I've wanted was a nice die phone that's snappy and smooth with a nice size screen and stock android. I now have it and couldn't be happier. I'm a little scared as to how the battery life will be as I'm a heavy internet user but time will tell. Gonna order a wireless charger and case now.

If you're looking for a budget wireless charger that gets the job done and is a trusted name then purchase the Nokia DT-900 (it's about $25 from at&t) and if you're looking for one that tilts then get the DT-910.

I have the DT-910 and it's wonderful. Stay away from off brand chargers because it can damage you're phone or even cause a fire!

Welcome to this wonderful community and enjoy your Nexus 5!

Its normal to receive the Nexus 5 when you order a Nexus 5. Its not a lottery

I'd be really annoyed if I was waiting for a nexus 5 and something else arrived

+1 for dt-910

If you plan on rooting the device read the first 4 threads well in the General section before you do anything
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

Kernel: DirtyV-SR

Other Device: Nexus S/ Nexus 5/ Nexus 10

Sorry for not recognizing the sheer magitude of your wisdom, the N5 though will be flagged when unlocking/rooting which the N4 didn`t have, you can reset it though but i`am sure you allready know that

Your just to funny. Have you nothing better to do. I don't want to get thrown off the forum so I'll keep some of my choice words to myself.
