Um couldn't this have been said in the previous article? The title might throw some people off.

The improvement on nexus 5 camera is not perfect. While the speed is a lot faster, the picture quality is poorer. Would hope Google can improve the speed while maintaining the quality.

All nexus 5 owners can experience the quality difference themselves.

I see no positive reason for upgrading from my Nexus 4 to the 5.

LTE, camera, screen (res and size), enhanced gaming

LTE is better as is the camera, the faster charging is awesome too. The screen and overall performance isn't a big enough jump that you would notice for long. Unless you were comparing side-by-side, which literally no one does except for reviewers.

I still think Htc One is the device to get this year. Had and still have Nexus 4 and I have to say I do like sense 5 better than stock. And it really is disappointing to see Google not being able to provide decent software with the original 4.4. What is worse now that they are releasing 4.4.1 jusy for a camera improvement on a particular model, it will be an even more outcry as to why the other devices ar so far behind and how fragmentation ruins the experience...I think bad bad move.

What about the transparent notification and navigation for nexus 7 ??? Any chance for that???

Indeed, I installed the new launcher manually, but I'd rather that it'd become managed along with Android itself.

Android feels like it's only made for Nexus devices now.

Because Google issues bug fixes for its own hardware?

the more an OEM or carrier screws with the software the worse its gonna feel thats why stock is better. Imo google should make android un-alterable by carriers and that but as customizable as it is
