Some Nexus 5 orders now shipping

Here's some good news that might keep you up all night; some of those who purchased the Nexus 5 on Thursday might be amazed to find that some units are already out of the warehouse and is enroute to their hand. Was it just this afternoon that the eagerly awaited model was officially launched? Hard to believe. Right now, the 16GB Nexus 5 in both block and white will leave the warehouse in 3 to 4 weeks...

It's about $472 here in India for the 16GB version....that's even more expensive than the 32GB version in US.
Not fair Google :(

I even feared that it would cross Rs. 30,000 for 16 GB model. Thank God. Almost 35% is being charged for import taxing and shipping, not Google's fault, but government's! :(

I'm extremely jealous. An odd coincidence today that I shattered my iPhone 4S screen soon after purchasing my Nexus 5...

Almost the same thing happened to me last year when purchasing the Nexus 4.. The day after the purchase, my Xperia Neo was stolen :P

32gb black ordered on 11:03am PST got shipped this morning around 2:30am! I really wish I chose a faster shipping time for 4 extra dollars... ;(

My question may be so dumb but I really have to ask this. I'm from Singapore and I don't know much things about Playstore since I've never purchased anything from Playstore. My question is .. Can I directly purchase 32 GB Nexus 5 from Playstore at 399$+ Shipping+Tax ?? Does Google ship to Singapore? >.

No, I'm afraid it only ships to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, India, Japan, South Korea, Spain, United Kingdom, United States, according to: ht tps://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/2462844?hl=en&ref_topic=3380791
Perhaps Singapore will be added eventually.

They didn't last year. I helped a friend get one. Bought it here in the US, shipped it and found out PayPal Singapore doesn't do money transfers for friends only. Just commercial. I lost some money after that and taxes that reverted to me rather than my friend. It's OK for friends and explains why you might pay more on ebay or other site.

How does this compare with Xperia Z1 or LG G2 if fast updates are left out as something important.
15. imMature (Posts: 82; Member since: 04 Sep 2013)
They're almost the same. It has an OIS and smaller form, which the Z1 doesn't have. Smaller screen for some people, compare to G2.. More custom rom options as devs love Nexus devices. More optimized apps too.
