Main reason I was looking at the Sony was because of battery life. How do those compare? Also kinda cool it's waterproof.

Well you need to remember as a flashaholic you are you need a phone that will satisfy you in 3rd party support. Lol
All of those phones have good support. As for comparison im bad with that but you have the option to look up at the phonearena website and compare as many phones you want side by side.

For gs4 even is a good phone but i never been a fan of touchwiz same reason i upgrade to moto blurr.

The N5 has pretty a abysmal camera, although the same can be said about the AHD too.

I had the AtrixHD and now I own the N5 and the N5 camera is better but saying the N5 camera is abysmal is just not true and look like you just spread what you read over forums. Same goes with the N5 bad battery life, various manufacturing defects and bad speaker quality. (I'm looking at the serial RMA people)

You pick the posts from loud mouth people but skip over the VAST majority of people that are silently happy with the N5.

My wife use the AtrixHD with the original battery and she is very happy never complained about the battery life.

the N5 is a 350$ superphone and the value is very hard to beat (the moto G is also a very good choice). If you need to do professionnal pictures.... well you shouldn't use a smartphone to take them.


Note : I always buy my phones unlocked so I don't fall for the "99$ Note 3 with 80$ plan" tricks. My 350$ N5 and AHD are both on a 40$ 1Gb/unlimited calls/SMS (Koodo Canada with rebate for BYOD users)



edit : the N5 is freaking fast, freakingly cheap, well supported by modders and always updated to the latest OS by Google. And I LOVE the wireless charging

you can search with key words and get actual side by side reviews by owners (as an example "Nexus 5 vs Moto X" )

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2512881
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2513780


you can find many reviews by OWNERS of any 2 devices. I posted the "N5 vs whatever" but you can search for "whatever vs whatever"

When I got the Nexus 5, I was also looking at the Note 3 as my business phone. Went for the N5 as it was literally half the price of the Note3 but I'm happy with the N5 as I'm pretty sure I would be happy with a Note3.

Truth is : go for the BEST supported phone with the latest technology inside (some of the phones you listed are considered old even if they are good)

Edit : After high expectations of Motorola releasing updates for the MB886, jumping around every time an elusive possibility of upcoming firmware upgrade poping up on the internet. Going to a Nexus device I KNOW FOR SURE will get constant updates is really something else. (then having the stock Android experience is nice even if the AHD is pretty close to stock.)
