Default [Q] Nexus 5 vs LG G2

Looking at getting a new phone. Coming from the N4, I am used to stock and enjoy the quick updates. However, the G2 offers a better camera and much more importantly a better battery life. Can anyone speak to their experience with custom roms with G2? I'm under the impression that roms for non-nexus devices tend to be buggier.

I chose the g2 over the nexus for the added screen size' the button placement which i absolutely love, camera, battery life. I could go on. Vanilla android is nice but honestly , the g2 ui is awesome. I absolutely feel no need to flash away to other things.

Just got rid of the N5, do have to say it is awesome. Camera is hit or miss. It'll surprise you but more times then not its pretty dissapointing. Battery life is rather horrendous for the n5 but it s doable,barely! If you like to switch it up and flash alot of roms then get the N5. So far the g2 has been one of if not the best smart phone I've ever owned or had the pleasure of putting my mitts on. As for roms I'm still stock for now but even this way the g2 is blazing through whatever I shoot at it. Benchmarks don't mean **** but it does stroke the ego a tad.

Pa is really stable, and with a good 4.4 rom like this it's basically an n5 with a bigger screen and better battery.
So it's almost n5 vs n5 plus if you ask me.

Get the G2. The hardware is better and plus we have 4.2.2 roms that are stable. We may not get quick carrier updates but the devs are quick to port everything over to the G2 hence we have a lot of 4.2.2 roms that are daily drivers.
