What exactly is the purpose of playing 4k video on a 1080p display? All you're doing is unnecessarily taxing the processor and battery for literally no improvement in video quality. I don't understand this thread at all.

Is there anything mainstream that actually is in 4K yet? I know the Note 3 records in 4K, but 99% of people don't have 4K TVs and probably won't for the next few years.

Oh, and playing 4K (or anything higher than 1080p really) on the Nexus 5 is like playing 1080p content on an old CRT TV. It's pointless.
