Actually, at last check the Nexus 5 can record 720p at 60fps. It does 1080p at 30fps.

Gotta find a source for that but I think I saw that somewhere.

Only of you sit too close. The definition is relative to the distance you sit from the size of screen.

Anyone who has a 50" hd screen that thinks it looks sd is sitting too close. They bought a tv that is too big for their room. Like I did. Now I.have a bigger room and sit the appropriate distance away, everything is much sharper

The main draw to 4K for me is you could zoom in on something (cropping it to 1080P) and not drop down in resolution. Not only that but most large computer monitors these days are far over 1080P, and youtube supports original resolutions on uploaded videos.

The snapdragon is capable of recording 4k video, but since the camera app is the worst stock app on android (followed by chrome) it's no wonder that we don't have a 4k recording option

The device itself is capable. The software though, isn't there.

Erm, No.
4K definition is: 3840x2160 and upwards (according to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4K_video#Ultra_HD)
The Nexus camera is 8MP (Max image size of: 3264 x 2448).
So how on earth can it capture a video size bigger than it's image sensor?

But well, at least, the Nexus 5 could have had slow no with 720P (it's capable).
