Default clone the N4 to n5?

any way to clone everything I have in Nexus4 to my brand new Nexus5 who supposedly will arrive tomorrow?
not only contacts and very few settings how can be duplicated using gmail, I think at everything: apps, calls, sms, settings, data, emails, ...

is Google providing any tools to, like other manufacturers do?

thanks for suggestions

An idea. Resilient, highly contagious. Once an ideaís taken hold in the brain itís almost impossible to eradicate. A person can cover it up, ignore it, but it stays there.

Root N4 & N5. Backup everything on N4 using Titanium. Use Titanium Backup on N5 to restore/extract what you have backed up on the N4.

Use settings backup option
Then when you upgrade to N5 it will reinstall all your play apps after you put in your gmail account details
Use SMS Backup+ too
