Finally, the red variant of the Nexus 5 is here. Now available in the Google Play Store, the model was the subject of questionable videos, suspect photographs and speculative reports. The good news is that the pricing remains the same with the 16GB model tagged at $349 and the 32 GB variant priced at $399. The device will ship in just one to two days...

Looks beautiful! I'm probably going to sell my galaxy s4 for this

Can someone please explain to me how this is considered "Red" when the front is clearly black. HTC doesn't do that, Samsung doesn't, Apple doesn't. It sucks that they would put these out like this. It's like a half done job. Like they said just give it to them. It has nexus on it. They'll buy it half done.

Nexus 5 is a "budget" device for its specs. It's cheaper to use the exact same front panel rather than producing a new one in red.
By the way, the iPhone 5C has black front panel regardless what color you buy. So yeah, Apple does do that... on a $550 phone.
Oh and bright red would look terrible in the front, too.

Bro its just the design that google wanted. Just because the back of the phone is red doesn't its half done... Its looks interesting with a two tone look and stands out from other flagships that Samsung, apple, HTC, etc.

Apple actually does do that. iPhone C..?

They should have kept the earpiece black.

Makes it easer to tell which way up when the screen is off.

Maybe, but that didn't seem to be an issue with the black version.

If you're interested in Android,, you got to be crazy to not consider this device.. This might be the coolest Android device ever..
If only it came with a 6"+ screen opinion.
Man, it looks good in red...
I wish we had LG on the home team..

I really want to give Windows a try, but, their phones are too locked up for me to consider them.

The red point (earpiece?) in the front screws the whole design... They should have keep it in black. With that red thing there... Sorry but no thanks. I don't want it not even as a present...

Check the white Nexus 5 ...has a white earpiece black has a black one and red...you guessed it...they followed suit

lol I don't think it looks too bad with the red earpiece although I agree that it might have looked better black.

Buy a red case - if you still have not purchased a Nexus 5, buy it in black.

exactly what I did, it's basically the red one but with protection!

I desperately want this device. Verizon, what's the hold up?
25. andynaija (Posts: 881; Member since: 08 Sep 2012)
I don't think Verizon is getting this device sorry.
27. BRYLYNT (Posts: 81; Member since: 09 Nov 2013)
It's not gonna happen. Verizon refuses to have a device that cheap as an option. People would be more inclined to keep their unlimited data packages and just buy the device off contract and well verizon just can't have that.

I hit the purchase button in a breath. Waiting patiently for its arrival.

Most disappointing phone I owned. Sold within a week. Horrible screen resolution, lightweight and cheap feeling.

I saw a cmment about selling an S4 and replacing iit with this? Uh.....no. It is like trading in your Ferrari on a Chevy.

Is this worth it or should I just be happy with my blue HTC one?
31. tolucafreak (Posts: 1; Member since: 26 Feb 2014)
OK so looking at these specs on the Google Play Edition of the Nexus 5, it looks like it is compatible with Verizon's network however does anyone truly know if this phone will really work for them?
