Asking seriously.
I wish i could. Google is sneaky and has ways to see where the leaks come from. They are funny too. When the phone started up it needs to be updated. Some experimental software stuff and it says you need to guard it like a ninja.

Here's a picture.

Looks ugly compared to the design of the Nexus 4.

So with a 2300 mAh battery, it would put it in line with the HTC One. Except the Nexus 5's Snapdragon 800 is more energy efficient than the Snapdragon 600, but the battery has to power a slightly larger display. So I am thinking battery life will be roughly the same or maybe a little better than the HTC One.

Sure the soft touch is more resilient to drops and scratches but as far as design and looks go the Nexus 4 looks better in my opinion.

Wait... whaaaat?? Where did you get that?

The lens of whatever that is looks terrible. I don't think it has a purpose. The camera itself is in the center... what's all that that surrounds it?

The purpose is to look similar to the Nexus 7 which is the exact same way.

Just picked up my Nexus 7, and yes, it also has a huge camera cutout where the actual lens is much smaller and in the middle. So I don't know what you're looking at.

I can totally live with that consider my HTC One has great battery life.

What kind of usage are you getting? And what are your main battery sucking apps?

I think a glass back looks great, it just isn't practical.

Well considering how it will probably only cost $300 I think it's worth it. I can't wait!

They've got to bump it up to at least $349 IMO for the base model.

Edit: maybe $329 to match the Nexus 7 price hike of $30

True, but either way that isn't a lot of money. I just hope they can offer 32GB and 64GB, though it's 99.9999999% sure they won't.

Absolutely it's definitely a great price.

Ugh. I'm beginning to hate Google for this also. I wish Apple had pushed for 32/64gb. Not that they want to stop gouging us for NAND either, but it takes someone to push for 32/64gb before we get it across the industry.
