The LG G2 has a better camera and larger battery.

The Nexus 5 will get quicker updates.

There are still bugs in AOSP based ROMs for the LG G2.

I like my G2 and I wouldn't switch. But pick the one you want. That will be the best phone for you.

Btw. this thread will get closed because comparison threads are not allowed here.
Primary device: LG G2 (D802, International)

Both are good phones, each of them is better for someone else. I would take nexus 5 because I had s4 before and g2 looks quite the same, software is similar to touchwiz, but runs a lot better I suppose. I have never used "smart" features of the s4 so I dont need them as they are present in g2's ui.
In summary I want some change so I would take n5.........only drawback is battery life, but I am used to charge every night. Camera - with 4.4.1 it gets better and also there are some mods around

Nexus 5 is the chumps cheapskate G2.

Way worse camera.
Way smaller battery
Way worse screen.
No IR blaster

LESS options as far as os/roms
As the g2,can run the LG optimus UI, AOSP roms or hybrids of both when the n5,just gets aosp only based roms, which personally i love the LG ui after being on vanilla android only for the past few years. It makes aosp seem "boring"

Lg optimus ui is lean and mean as well. Its light nice and snappy fast unlike the super heavy ui's such as toucwiz
