There's a lot to like about this phone, with the two main things being the price and that it runs pure Android, so you will always have access to the latest version. It has a really nice, bright, full 1080p screen and while the design of the hardware is nothing special, it looks great and feels well built for the money. It's also slim and quite light. Performance is strong in 3D games, so you should have no problem running games like Riptide GP 2 at max settings.

When I originally wrote my review of this phone, I criticised it for 3 things, 2 of which have been improved with the Android 4.4.1 update: -

1. The camera. With Android 4.4, the camera was quite hit and miss. It's much improved in 4.4.1 and I no longer consider the camera a potential negative with the Nexus 5. It is not the best smartphone camera out there, but it's still really good.

2. The notification light. With Google's own apps, the notification light didn't pulse often enough in Android 4.4. It was easy to miss if you just glanced over at your phone. In Android 4.4.1, Google have decreased the time between pulses, but it's still too long IMO. It's better than it was, but could be improved further.

3. The battery life. The battery life is good, but it's not great. I'd have paid more for a higher mAh battery.

The 4.4.1 update also seems to have improved the speaker. There must have been a software issue preventing it from sounding as good as it could in certain circumstances. While it's still not amazing, there is a definite improvement. I've not noticed any other changes in 4.4.1 yet, but it supposedly includes a bunch of bug fixes.

The 4.4.1 update is just starting to roll out to devices, but it could take a couple of weeks before it hits your phone.

This is a brilliant phone in every way but can be bought direct from Google for less. Also for £339 you get the 32gb version. Amazing screen, a pleasure to use and none of the unnecessary and annoying add on software that makes other android phones so annoying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone, only one issue. 23 Feb 2014
Size Name:D821
This is a gorgeous phone, it's slim and has a large, high definition display. The display when turned on full brightness can be easily seen in bright sunlight, this is excellent, however this leads to it's drawback, the battery life. The battery life on my Nexus 5 is not the best. I can barely get through a day without having to charge it. Charging it though, isn't too bad as I don't have to plug anything in! I'm using the Nokia DT-900 wireless charger, it sometimes gets a bit hot but other than that, they work together perfectly.

I have rather large hands, because of this, I have had no problems in operating the phone, however, people with smaller hands might want to consider this before buying this phone.

I have had this phone for over two months now, I have dropped it(with a case) and it still works like it did on the first day! I wouldn't recommend dropping it though, just in case it does smash. The glass on this device is Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

A key feature of this device is the Android OS ecosystem. This device is produced by Google which means that it does not have any bloatware pre-installed onto it which makes the phone incredibly easy to use and learn how to further use. The default launcher is the "Google Now" launcher, this is a piece of software which provides useful information about your location and other things including the weather, on the Google Now screen I have even seen that it reads any Amazon emails and informs me of their status(e.g. ordered, dispatched) However you must use a GMail email for this to be enabled.

The camera on this device is 8MP which produces some incredibly photos, especially if you have HDR turned on. One issue with the camera is that sometimes it can take a while for it to auto-focus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Generally Outstanding 13 Dec 2013
Size Name:D821
I've owned Android phones by HTC, Sony and even dabbled with a Samsung imitation Star product briefly before finally accepting that if you want something that's half decent you need to run with something like the Nexus 5 - in the sense that you have Google's financial firepower and innovation to produce an amazing phone for half the price you'd pay for an Apple iPhone 5.

With regard to style and ergonomics - prior to purchasing it, from looking at the images online I thought the styling was a little bland and average, but I was attracted by the performance that the early reviews spoke of. Now I've bought it I think that its is very well crafted. It is the right size between a large screen but not too big in the pocket, helped by the fact that the bevel around the screen is very slim. It feels very solid and well-made. I didn't want to spend a fortune on the official cases that Google sell for this - I would recommend the Orzly® - Multi-Function Wallet Case for LG NEXUS 5 - BLACK Leather Effect Wallet Style Phone Case with Intergrated Stand and Built-In Auto Sleep / Wake Sensor Functionality designed exclusively for the GOOGLE NEXUS 5 SmartPhone ( 2013 Model ) - it looks fine and for £6 it is sensibly priced and will protect your new gadget better than one of the slimmer cases.

Performance-wise, it is quick, so much faster than any of the Android phones I've owned before as you'd expect given the absence of bloatware. This product seems to exude quality, and I'm really impressed after owning it for a few weeks. The only letdown is the inability to insert a micro SD card, so its worth thinking about buying the 32GB version.
