Hey,

I'm going to buy a new phone at the end of the month and I've always thought the nexus 5 looks great and appears to be great in performance.
But it's been a while since it has gotten released and I wonder if I should still buy it.

Are there other phones which are well built and have great performance, ofcourse in the same price range.
Currently I can buy the Nexus 5 for 360, seems like there's no other phone that can match this price with it's performance.

So my question is should I buy it, or get another flagship?

This thread will probably be closed really soon. You're asking in the Nexus 5 section, we've already made our decision and bought one. You ask here, most will automatically recommend the Nexus 5. You ask in the LG G3 section, for example, and they'll recommend the LG G3. Same goes for any other device section if you were to ask.

Make your own decision.

Lol

@OP: The only better phone that I see in the price range for you is the one plus one. But you need an invite to get one so it's a pain to get one. If I were you, I'd put in more money & buy an m8 (I don't give a damn about the camera).. Probably a GPE m8.

Still rocking the Nokia 3310. Currently on PA with Elemental X kernel. Combo makes this phone fly. Btw, the boot up time is incredible. Not sure if it's the kernel, but it boots up in 2 seconds!
