I hope I'm in the right place for this.. I just wanted to say hello I'm Alex aka. Mysticfrog.. I've been a serious fanboy of Samsung phones until late last one being a note 3.. Great phone but just really got tired of the whole gimmick it was turning out to be. So I decided to check out the nexus 5... Big time different from the Samsung series of phones but I Love it!! It's fast sleek and just all around incredible.. This is the total Android experience I have been waiting for.. anyhow I just wanted to introduce myself so hi all... I've read a lot of threads here and y'all seem like a bunch of cool guys and girls I'm just glad I made the step.. The development here is amazing so I'm looking forward to hanging and having fun

Welcome Alex! Some of us find Android nirvana later than others...just as long as we DO find it, is all that matters. Cheers!

Yup, root and flash all you want, no KNOX on the N5
Check out the first 4 threads in the General section (this one) for all you need to know about doing stuff.

Embrace the sense of freedom, it feels amazing when you're coming from a HTC or Sammy device... so, SO many roms and kernels to chose from and they all mostly work together, unlike for example HTC One X where half the kernels dont work with the other half of the roms and you gotta repack and flash the kernel through fastboot... what a chore just to switch kernel. And S-off... ffff... Anyways welcome to the world of Nexus and hope all your flashing experiences go smoothly!

and LOOOOL at the S5 comparison with the bandaid ahahahah! good one

I might get one just because it works with the new gear fitness watch. I'll still keep my nexus but I have a heart condition so it may be handy for people like me. I like the blue one

I use Instant Heart Rate Pro from Play, very accurate and you can store measurements on a server.

yeah you hit the nail right on the head a phone full of junk!!! that and knox I really dont understand why sammy added that..
All i actually did was roll into tmobile to pay my bill and while i was waiting I saw this device just chilling there looking like a chocolate bar so as i started messing with it I realized that some of the roms i flashed on my note 3that i really liked originated from this devise.. So i sat down looked it up, checked out some reviews played with it some more and realized this is the true android experience i crave.. well actually i pulled up the xda site to see how much "love" this device was getting and that kinda sold me.. the development is huge here... Im running droidkang right now which im loving..
one question tho is there any way when i flash a rom how do i keep my music from being deleted?? What i do is basically just redownload it from my laptop, is there an easier way?? Im just used to having that internal mem card... thanks for the warm welcome all..
