Hi folks I am considering buying a nexus 5. Currently have a moto X and I'm happy with it. However I missed the stock Android and Nexus experience. They're all kinds of pros and cons with this phone as you all know. I guess after all this time, do you think the phone is still worth purchasing? Main reason being is the next Nexus is a matter of months away. What would you owners say? Thanks.

The battery is fine. You can consistently get 5+ hours of sot if you set it up right.

battery isnt bad. but it all depends what your signal quality will be like, how you set it up, what apps youbuse, and how you use your device. i personally see about 4.5-5.5 hours screen in time.

As Midnight_Rider Put It... In A Matter Of 6 Months... I Just Used My Jump Upgrade and Went From A HTC One M7 > Note 3 > iPhone 5s Gold (Worst Decision I Ever Made In The Handset Division... The IPad Is Cool But Not The Phone) and Now I Have The Nexus 5...

As Stated Before... Best Decision I Ever Made In The Mobile World In A While. I've Had the Nexus One & the Galaxy Nexus... Minus the Nexus S As I Wasn't On Sucky Sprint But Now That I Have the Nexus 5... I Can Clearly Admit That I'm Thrilled To Be Back To Pure Google, Unlocked, Unrestricted and On the Un-Carrier and the Nexus World.

I Said the Same Thing... As the Next Nexus Is Due By December and The G3 Is Right Around the Corner But Seriously... Its A No Brainer... I Wish the Best To You Young Padawon On Your Choices... Choose Wisely lol 😀
