For those of you who switched from another smartphone how are the radios from LG.

I currently have an HTC One and it is passable in my workload, but nothing to write home about. I'm looking at phones now to JUMP with and the N5 is what I really really want but the terrible battery and unknown radios worry me a lot.

So how are you finding them? I don't care about speed, I care about the ability to get and hold signal. Compared to your last device is it better or worse.

first off, your questions dont go into the general section, they go into the q&a section.

now, whatever you read from bloggers is mostly untrue.

the battery life on the nexus 5 is actually very good. i average about 5-6 hours screen on time. also, im with tmobile in nyc, theres absolutely not a single issue with the radios for me. calls sound great, they dont drop. and data speeds are very fast, i average arounf 30mbps download and 20mbps upload speeds.

I don't go on bloggers, I know what I've gotten with other devices (namely the One) and the average I've seen throughout forums. I don't believe in turning off features I use such as location reporting and such. Most I've seen with same/similar usage as I aren't getting great battery life. Top that with the fact that I work in a Studio in the middle of a building and get minimal signal as it is, I have to assume I will get lower then average battery life.
