I've owned MANY different devices since I started with Android in 2008 with the G1. All top end devices from HTC, Samsung, Moto.. and every Nexus device but the mako as my carrier (Sprint) failed to carry it. (tear) There's just no comparing anything with a Nexus imo. Rom (& kernel) heaven!! haha! Nothin runs Aosp like a Nex and we have imo the greatest devs on the map!! (: The Nexus 5 is by far the best Nexus yet!! You will love it!! I prefer it over any device I've owned. Welcome!
