I guess you could say I don't mess with my phone as much as I did when I had my HTC One. Although the N5 is rooted with a few mods, I try not to get too caught up in the realm of XDA as it does get quite addicting
Good to here that you are using your phone as a phone only. Its good for your N5 battery life, but i guess you spent lots of money on it, so use its technology as much as you can.Root manually whenever needed any enjoy it.

I use it mainly for texting, internet browsing, email, and calling people. I find that I barely use any apps on the phone. My N7 is what I use to occasionally play games, etc.

I use it for texting, IM apps, Hangouts, internet browsing, YouTube, spotify, email, coursers, Flipboard, note taking. calendar app. I'd probably be at a loss without my phone.
