    Just wondering if any Nexus 5 users are still using the N5 or if they dumped the device to go back to their previous phone or get something totally new. I am still using mine, even though it took a spill already and gnarled up the edges and cracked the lower left of the screen, but honestly I keep looking at my backup note II and thinking about it.

    Dude if you're clumsy enough to near ruin your phone in under 3 months you should consider a case.

    I miss mine, it was the perfect size. I didn't like the speaker and the auto focus, but now that those are much improved I wish I kept it as a backup phone.

    I'm still using my Nexus 5. I came over to android as a long time iPhone user. I used the N5 for two weeks and then purchased a wireless charger for both my home and office, so I think the N5 is a keeper. There are a few small nuances that annoy me but my iPhone had things that bothered me also.

    Funny story about that. I had one in my Amazon cart but opted to wait thinking I would be seeing gift cards for Christmas. Perhaps I should order a white backed replacement for easier removal from pocket.

    My friend and his brother both have Nexus 5's. Both still have them. I don't see my friend going back to his old Galaxy Nexus phone. Also, I don't see him going to a non-Nexus device since getting timely updates is important for him.

    I got it and briefly switched to a Moto X for about a week. Ended up sending the Moto X back and am back on the Nexus 5 for now.

    Still using mine. If I were to take my Samsung S3 back from dad, that could be the start of a family feude (not that I want my S3 back - the Nexus 5 is a better overall experience).

    We went to a party within days of getting our launch-day N5's and my wife dropped hers on the pavement. In her defense, we had a lot of whiskey and vodka.

    BTW, still love them...

    Sold my nexus 5 1 week ago.

    Nexus 5 is a really good phone. Just got too many gadgets right now. Always keep my iPhone 5S.

    I've probably been through 6-7 phones this year already.

    Just picked up my new 2014 Range Rover Sport this week so another new toy to play with for the time being.

    I just did the same thing, and I really loved the Note 3 too.

    My white 16GB is now my backup phone after trying it for a week. Back to iPhone!

    I popped my SIM card in it and used it as my main phone for a bit but then found myself missing my 5s, the camera is far better, iOS still suits my needs more, and I missed the battery life...Still, the Nexus 5 camera gets a pretty bad reputation when it's actually quite awesome with 4.4.1, just not 5s good. When I find myself craving some more KitKat (which is quite often) I'm sure I'll go back. Switching between these phones is like getting the best of both worlds. Just wish the N5 used a damn nano sim to make it a little easier! :p They're both fantastic devices. I love being platform agnostic!

    Still using it and loving it!

    Got a 32gb black and it's great. Don't see myself switching off for quite a while

    Sold my iPhone 5. Now I wait to get the Nexus 5. Hopefully the wait will be TOTALLY worth it

    Have a Note 3 here and whilst I like it I kinda miss my Nexus 5.

    Think I may trade it in for a Nexus again.

    I dumped my launch dat Nexus 5 before the updates rolled out. Am sort of wishing I had held onto it just to see how much it has improved. Luckily they are cheap enough to think about going back to and getting one. My biggest gripe was the speaker sound/ quality. Hopefully it's improved. Waiting to get some feed back in the other Nexus 5 thread.

    Well I did it and traded the Note 3 in for a 32GB Nexus 5.

    As much as I loved the Note it's kinda nice to have a "normal" phone again!

    It hasn't. I RMA'd my first one and my second one got the larger cutouts and more solid power button. I haven't heard any difference in sound quality or sound level.

    Yep, same here. Nexus 5 is my main phone. I do like to use my Lumia 520 as well though. (Pic is crap. Taken with the Nexus 7 in a dark room.)
