Nexus 5 won't have a 3000 mAh battery version, claim insiders, just 16 GB and 32 GB ones

0. phoneArena 18 Oct 2013, 09:19 posted on

The sources confirm there will be two versions of the phone, with 16 GB and 32 GB of storage, respectively. Google's test Play Store pages where the Nexus 5 was pictured with $349 price tag is probably for the variant with larger storage. No microSD card for expansion will be available, of course. Second, as much as we've heard about two battery capacity versions - 2300 mAh and 3000 mAh - the source poured cold water on that rumor, and said both the 16 GB and the 32 GB unit will come with 2300 mAh, which sounds more logical...

My N4 on 4.3 lasts till I go to bed at 10pm, it comes of charger at 4:30am.
My day end charge is usually -/+40%.
If that's bad, I guess I won't be disappointed with a N5 bro.

Did you read his comment? "My N4 lasts all day on 4.3" did you skip the 4.3 part? As far as i recall GSMArena didn't redo the test with Android 4.3, my sisters N4 on 4.3 seem to be on par with my HTC One which is about a day with 4-5 hours of screen on.

Yeah 4.3 magically adds 4-5 hours of extra battery life. It's so awesome!!!

Many are saying the same thing, also strangely enough they appear to actually be speaking from usage by owning the said device, and not out of their own derriere.

The earlier post where google so-called "accidentally" uploaded the nexus 5 in their website, it mentions "Starting at $349", so that confirm the lower storage version will cost $349 whether its 8 or 16gb.

It was for a 16gb model (url indicated 16gb). There's no 8gb model this time.

32GB with no expansion, 8MP camera, 2600 mah batt, sub 5" screen for $350 or more?

Looking more like a compromise than a deal. Hope some of these leaks are wrong

Sigh....will wait for battery life tests and results. But i am finding it hard to leave Verizon and my unlimited data behind as well. How come Google and Verizon cant play nice? :(

Battery should be the last place for compromise no matter what, I would absolutely love a 720p screen and a 3000 MAH battery, I'd take that over 1080p and 2300 MAH any day. Unfortunately I'll probably still end up with this because my current phone is a time bomb that will stop working any day now, sub-par battery life will be bearable if I'm getting consistent lag-free performance and updates.

+$4XX for 32GB, 2300 mAh, 8MP>>> Wanted N5 but I'm out if this is true. To compromise on the battery, camera, and styling (imo) it would need to be priced at $299 for 32GB for me. I will just wait for contract renewal next year and get whatever the best beast is then for subsidized price $199 with better camera, battery, and style.

Battery is fine. The iphone has like 1570 mah. Google isn't going to screw it up that badly.

"The iphone has like 1570 mah."

Bad comparison. Because I think that most iPhone users are getting gouged off their eyeballs w/ that but hey they just don't care. You use an S II w/ 1650mAh batt for so long (which is what I'm doing now), that to think for an upgrade you'd go double that NO LESS.

Did anyone notice how goofy the headline is for this article?

"Nexus 5 won't have a 3000 mAh battery version, claim insiders, just 16 GB and 32 GB ones"

Makes it sound like the battery is being called a 16GB or 32GB one. We all know what it means, but still it's pretty bad and looks odd being shared. :)

Still would've been nice if they added a bigger battery anyway even if android 4.4 might help save more battery.

Let's say that 4.4 and Snap dragon 800 magically combine to make this phone last 1 full day of heavy usage on a 2300mah battery.

Why settle for the status quo?

Put a 3300mah battery in it so it could stretch into the 3rd day and blow everybody's mind.
