Should you upgrade to the Google Nexus 5 (or not)

0. phoneArena 31 Oct 2013, 13:04 posted on

Well, well, well, so you have an "old" Nexus 4, and you're wondering if it's worth the effort to make a switch to the new Nexus 5? Well, the fact that the newer device has a technological advantage is more than indisputable, but for some of us, the upgrade maneuver is not such a no-brainer...

A nice phone
And a good price
To Nexus Hello
To iPhone goodbye

No more problems

We are out of trouble
The Nexus is here!

Care to expound on your reasoning? Is it crap, is there another Nexus coming right after it, do you just not like android?

If you're only saying that because you don't like the OS, it doesn't apply to people who do. If there is something wrong with the hardware or software, or they have a better followup coming out shortly, then it does apply.

BTW, who are you to tell people what they should or shouldn't buy?

well said vzwuser. Ironically the only thing stopping me from getting it is the fact that it's not CDMA and might not support vzw LTE.

i paid for 2 day shipping to get my nexus 4 on the market faster. hope i can sell it.

addition of LTE is a big deal. Im switching from tmo towers to att towers (straight talk) so i can get lte.

I have a Nexus 4 (v4.2.1 and set to get LTE) for personal use and a Galaxy 4 for work related use... I have being seriously considering to upgrade to the new Nexus 5 the problem is that my carrier is T-Mobile, and although T-Mobile claims they already have LTE in NYC I have not being able to find not even one place were T-Mobile LTE works in neither one of the phones (in fact the Nexus 4 always gets faster downloads & uploads speeds than the Galaxy 4 both tested at the same time and at the same place).
