I sold my HTC one and purchased this device. I was totally in the same position as you, the HTC and served me well. I was using it as my work phone as I am this phone. One thing that annoyed the life out of me on the one was the curved back, it was constantly rocking when I was sending texts etc.. Minor but important . The screen looks like it has been forced in all of the characters look stretched. There is way to much of the metal case showing, it needs a bigger screen in the same size case.. But I still loved it. The music app was nice, blink feed wasn't so bad. It took me a while to grow to like the N5, right now I wouldn't trade back at all. I am running stock rooted with exposed and gravity with bricked kernel and k control. I am yet to try custom ROMs but I expect to soon.
