At the moment, just from experience...with mostly touchwiz and the moto x.....the moto x is my go to recommended phone.
Sent from my N5, N7, Moto X, G Tab 3 or S2.....
Touchwiz is as ugly as the sammy phone designs! The new touchwiz makes me wanna puke!
After experiencing stock android experience, I will never switch to any other!
First of all Google doesn't manufacture the Nexus 5, LG does. LOL.
The camera on the Nexus 5 is great! Take a look at those threads in the General forum and see for yourself. You just need to know how to shoot it. However, no doubt it doesn't match up to the s5's camera!
How can anybody expect boom sound dual frontal speakers with 16mp camera on a $350 phone? I don't think the extra $200-300 premium is worth paying for those speakers/camera. May be because I'm not into too much photography and only take about 2-3 pics a day.
As for the media playback, the Nexus 5's speaker is decent and with a good sound mod like V4A, it becomes SWEET!
That being said, Nexuses aren't for everyone as @kj2112
said... Those who love Custom ROM Development and try a lot of new things and want quick updates usually buy Nexus devices and the slight trade off in hardware is acceptable when you look at that price tag!
