Default My new nexus 5 is on its way...battery and camera question

Hi all

I ordered the nexus 5 as I have both the nexus 7's and I love them. However after reading a few reviews alot of them are saying that the battery and camera are poor!

Are they as bad as some reviews make out?

Thanks Chris

No, they arent. You couldve checked the 10 threads that have Nexus 5 photos posted in them, and a battery thread which is on the main page and has like 200 pages of people's expirience.

The camera is decent, and at least for me the battery life has been phenomenal. Way better than most people make it out to be. I average around 5 hours SOT, and can go 2 full days on a charge no problem. Buuuut everybody uses their phones different so YMMV.

That leads me to another question, if you have to charge it every day will the battery not start to deteriorate after a few months?

Why don't you read the sticky threads at the top of the forums? Why do you start a question in general forum?

I have no idea what you're doing. I get around 2. This is with location and sync off. Oh, and underclocked to 1.5GHz.

Few years, yes. What smartphone do you NOT have to charger every day? (Besides the Maxx)
