Core processes starting up...
Error scan complete (0 found)...
All systems online...
Blacklisting bloatware...
Awaiting input...

OK Google... errr, we mean, OK people, you've successfully loaded our Nexus 5 info page - the go-to place for all things Nexus 5! But before we get down to it, let us give you a quick explanation of why you should be excited about this geeky piece of machinery. First of all, the Nexus 5 has all the latest high-performance silicon inside. We're talking Snapdragon 800 with quad-core Krait CPU and Adreno 330 GPU. Plus, it has a large, 5" display with a superb 1080 x 1920 resolution, which is bound to make your viewing experience even better than it already was with the Nexus 4 and other comparable smartphones.

Secondly, the Nexus 5 runs stock, vanilla, unaltered, clean Android 4.4 KitKat OS, which is not only the newest Android version with a bunch of cool new features, but is also perfectly free from any manufacturer or carrier bloatware (read: redundant apps and features that you're forced to look at, because you can't delete). Finally, you only have to pay $350 and all of this goodness is yours - no contracts, no nothing. Yes, you know now why we're so excited about this bad boy. With all of this background in mind, please, feel free to dive right in and explore our in-depth Nexus 5 coverage!

Just a question: Is it worth upgrading from a N4 to N5?

Obviously the N5 is an upgrade to the N4 (hardware wise) but the way I use the N4 will not be different of the N5. But that's my question, I have a N4 and I like very much the N5 but I don't feel like upgrading to this phone yet. Maybe if I had a lower specs phone... but well, that's my opinion I liked to share. Happy halloween :)

Well, 18 months support cycle, so I would suggest Nexus 5 2014 version :) and now that Android has started optimizing ... hardware specs would not really matter anymore :).

Is there a way to switch the location of the on screen buttons? I am a lefty and would like the back on the right side of the screen like it is on my SGS4.

What tragic shame...........NO REMOVABLE BATTERY. NEVER BUY A PHONE WITH A NON REMOVABLE BATTERY!! Other than that terrible design flaw, this phone has everything I would want. No bloatware too..........I'm waiting for an equivalent phone with a user-replaceable battery. Oh well........
