It's all about personal preference. The screen on the N5 is incredibly accurate and gorgeous (just take a look at the better reviews on the web) . But if you favor amoled then you won't see or recognize this.

If you're happy with the S4, then I say stay with it. Don't get me wrong, I like my N5. I switched from an S3 because TouchWiz was really annoying me with its' sluggishness. I flashed CM10 and got rid of it but even the stable build had some bugs. Which is why I decided I should just go with a Nexus. So, again if you like your S4 and have no problems then I don't really see a huge point in upgrading. Both are great phones though (if you don't mind the sluggish TouchWiz)

S4 never dropped signal for me. My n5 does daily
Removal battery
No SD card slot in the nexus

Why didn't you return the N5?

I needed a phone for work immediately. Got this Nexus. Unreliable signal is my main issue. Too late. Gotta live with it now until the s5 comes out

I still have both my Sprint gs4 and the Nexus 5 and I must say I like my gs4 better. The N5 is my first Nexus device and it's nice. I wanted to try it b/c of the countless articles, blogs, and forum posts extolling the virtues of a "pure" Android experience.

Although I've owned my gs4 since day 1 back in april, I still find myself using my gs4 as my primary, "go to" smartphone device.

With that said, I'll probably sell the GS4 for the GS5, however, once it comes out.

There's plenty of people willing to trade for the N5. If it's that bad for you I'm sure you could get back to an S4. You could try craigslist or swappa.
I personally don't have any signal (or any) problems with my N5.
