Question Anyone got a Nexus 5 after the Rezound ?

What are your thoughts of the transition ? Battery life ? Overall functionality in comparison ?
Did you feel it was a worthy upgrade ? Should I wait some more ?

I got an N4 from the Rezound, great upgrade... the N5 is even more robust, battery life is phenomenal compared to the Rezound, which was pretty bad actually, you wouldn't be disappointed unless you try to use it on Verizon, it won't work. As far as "functionality" goes, it is plain vanilla Android, so if you are used to Sense and some of it's embedded features you might be disappointed out of the box, but there are tons of apps that can do almost anything, you might just have to do more tweaking depending on your use.

Is it worth upgrading, yes... the difference is extreme. Should you wait, that depends on you... there is always something better right around the corner, so even if you wait, when the Nexus 6, or Moto R, or whatever is announced, there will always be something else better coming out soon.
Current Personal Phone: Google Nexus 4 on Cricket/Aio (Beanstalk 4.4.4 with hells-Core Kernel)
Current Work Phone: LG G2 VS980 on VZW (AICP 6.0 ROM)
Current Tablet: iPad 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
Other phones "in the family": HTC DNA, HTC One (M7), Motorola Moto G GPE
Previous/Retired Android Devices: HTC Aria, HTC Incredible 2, HTC Rezound, Samsung Stratosphere, Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Nextbook 8P

I got one
Nexus 5 32Gb.

It is AMAZING !!! So happy with this purchase, I feel the gap-up in experience is significant over the Rezound.
