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

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

nexus 5 | SlimKat | ElementalX kernel | Philz Touch Recovery

I do NOT reply to support queries over PM.

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

Coming from N4 I know all I needed was to download the recovery.img and then start downloading roms. =w=
All you need is ADB/Fastboot

Device Name: Nexus 5 HammerHead
ROM: PSX
Kernel & Tweaks: Franco/Trinity

Devices I meddled with:
Google Nexus 5(my new lady), Google Nexus 4(Sold), Samsung Nexus S(present), LG Optimus 4X HD P880(sold), HTC Sensation XE Pyramid(sold), Samsung Galaxy Wonder i8150(spare)

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.
