This is the best LG Nexus 5 image we've seen yet

FCC filing drawings to sort out what the device will look like. The leaks have been good enough to inspire a couple of unofficial device renders, but we hadn't seen a really good quality image of the device itself, even when it was "accidentally" left in a bar a few days before the iPhone 5s launch. Now we have a new leaked image that is by far the best we've seen. Unfortunately, the image itself doesn't add much info to the mix.But, up until now, we've been working from low-res images, and
The poster of the image claims that the backplate of the device feels similar to the new Nexus 7, says that it had a disclaimer talking about "experimental software" and asking that the user "guard it like a ninja". The poster also says that the display is only "ok", whatever that means.
The rumors have been saying the Nexus 5 will sport a Snapdragon 800, a 4.96-inch 1080p display, LTE, and if Google's Vic Gundotra is to be believed, it may also have an "insanely great" camera. The rumors have also pointed to an October 14th announcement, but those rumors haven't had much behind them as of yet.

The N5 camera looks a lot like the HTC One. It's definitely not an Ultrapixel camera, but i think it will give some pretty good shots in low-light.

I still don't like the horizontal Nexus logo. Just seems weird.

Just the "X" on the back would look way better.

I dont like the desing either... I'll sell my N4 and get it anyway, but I wish it could look better... N4 is great (not as great as Nexus S was, btw), but this huge camera is weird....

You sure? I've read two reports...one from gsmarena (recently) about the battery capacity stopping midway at 2300mAh... And if that's true, Nexus 5 has a big issue on it's head. Maybe it's just a report on a prototype, but it's there.

Its one probably in an otherwise super high-end $350 phone. And the battery should get you through a day easy. The htc one has the same sized battery but the n5 as a s800 (which is more power efficient than the s600) and kitkat (hopefully bring some battery improvements).

I'd like to believe that I really do but call me superstitious after running this GT-I9100G of mine w/ the standard 1650mAh till now, I reckon a better state of peace of mind if I can get double that or 3000mAh at least. We can take the rated numbers roughly sure but in reality you can easily shave off 2 - 3hrs scr on time out of the equation.

Am I the only one who has been liking the leaked design so far? To me the plain back with nexus written on it is simple, along with that there is nothing to distract from what appears to be a decent size camera lens.
