Not to be rude but you should of already known that everyone on this side of the forum will say "of course you made the right decision" and the Z1 side will more than likely oppose.

I never played with the Z1 but the main highlights of the Nexus 5 is the affordable price for pretty decent specs, speedy updates from google and Dev support! Hopefully you'll enjoy your new purchase/trade.

I agree with OuncE, but so you have some opinion on the matter... i came from the Z and the Z1s, after that. If the z1s had an unlockable boot loader and was slightly cheaper, i probably would have kept it, but Ultimately the price, customizability and mostly comparable specs pulled me to the nexus.

USB otg has been a decent help with expanding the storage capacity, and custom kernels have great battery saving options. Beyond that, the Dev community and timely official updates make this phone pretty worth while, but that's just my opinion.

A parting piece of advice: you'll enjoy this phone more if you focus on what it can offer than if you focus on what it lacks.

I would normally agree with the sentiment shared.
Though the nexus forums seen to tolerate G2 owners running in most threads knocking/comparing their choice to the N5.

This I've never saw in any other xda forum but this one. Just about makes me want to find another forum.

On topic, I think you did OK with your trade, might be a lesser costing phone, but the experience of plain android makes up for options imo.

You tell us if you made the right move.

We say yes because we all own the phone.
