Hey guys,
Im thinking about coming to the Nexus5. I was going to go to the MotoX but the size turned me off. Im now coming from my old Razr Maxx. What I was wondering is that I had an older Nexus and the radio sUCKED! I always dropped calls, no 4g etc. Samsung made that one. Hows the radio with it now? Battery life?

I see here its only 399 ( https://play.google.com/store/device...s_5_black_32gb ) Thats a good deal IMO... Any input would be appreciated.


Also, hows the camera?

The Radios aren't as good as the Note 3, from personal experience here in Boise, but they're almost as good.

I don't get dropped calls.

Yeah, Verizon doesn't like unlockable or easily tampered devices.

Also, the Moto X is very cheap at the moment, it's a fantastic device. A little small yes, but it's not bad at all.

But there is a Moto X for Verizon! I have both, the N5 and the Moto X, and I prefer the Moto X. I still think it is the best phone currently available. You'll get used to the smaller screen, and it will become very convenient over time. 4.7" is perfect for one handed use, and it's made even better with how well the Moto X fits the hand. It also runs near bone stock Android, save for a few very useful and well implemented features.

Edit: I would also like to add that the Moto X's radios are bulletproof.
