Press image of red Nexus 5 leaks
The Nexus 5, manufactured by LG, is currently available in black and white. A video that was sent to us by an anonymous tipster a bit over a week ago, appeared to show the Google Play Store getting ready to accept the handset in a multitude of colors. But the legitimacy of the video was quickly called into question. Coincidentally, the very same day the photo of the red Nexus 5 was leaked out of Vietnam.
The press image of the red Nexus 5 tweeted by evleaks would seem to put the exclamation mark on this whole affair. While Google has yet to officially announce the handset, we should hear something from the tech titan any day.

Why not just buy a Black Nexus 5 and buy the RED case that they have available? It's practically the same thing and with how fragile the screen is, you should buy a case anyway. Two birds with one stone.

Because sadly, you need a case to keep your phone in excellent condition. All it takes is one drop and I'm pretty sure those cases are like 20 bucks tops, not breaking the bank.

For one I hate cases and for two I love red phones

Awesome, now you can struggle for four hours of screen time in red! It will be a wonderful contrast to the overly large icons and blandness of AOSP- based Kit Kat.
Yes, I hate the Nexus line. Poor battery life, mediocre cameras, and gimped Android just don't appeal to me. Nearly stock AOSP was useful before this last generation of hardware, when lag and performance issues hindered the skinned Android varieties, but newer hardware doesn't have these problems. And please, enough with the "great value" spiel. The Moto X and LG G2 can both be had in the same price range, and they are superior experiences.

I can see some of your points. That's why I got myself a G2 and I love it.

I went G2->N5->G2, and the G2 was the better phone by a huge margin. I paid $432 for my 32GB N5, and $472 for my second G2. I know the camera and battery life on the N5 got better on 4.4.2, but neither is as good as on the G2.

Thank you for letting me know that you tried both and can compare.
I was thinking about selling my G2 and buying a N5 just because I never had one and people keep talking about how great it is.
I always had Samsung HTC or Iphone. So this is my first LG and I have no complaints.
But my itch for a Nexus is still there lol

The G2 is a great phone. I rocked it until I got my L1520. Its so compact for the screen size, LG did good in that area.

I understand your points. I still like stock Android, but there are things that I even prefer on Sense, which isn't known to be the most feature rich Android overlay. Idk, I have a nexus 7 (2013) and my HTC One and theres something about the elegance of Sense that makes me prefer it over stock- just a little. Especially since the lag is gone in Sense, which was my main previous reason for preferring stock in the past.
