Nexus 5 Appears on Google Play! Starting Price of $349 (Updated)

nexus 5

Sooooo, the Nexus 5 is now showing up on Google Play (name now confirmed). Tough to tell if this is an early mistake or something is about to go down officially. The price shows that it starts at $349 and there is a direct link to the phone (which is not live yet) that shows it will be a 16GB model. There could be a 32GB model as well, but that info isn’t available.

Update: ย And here is the mega-high-res version.

Update 2: ย The Nexus 4 is now completely gone.

Update 3: We should point out that the quote under the listing says “Capture the everyday and the epic in fresh new ways.”

Update 4: And the Nexus 4 has returned.

Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 6.47.32 PM

Update 5: ย Google appears to have closed up shop now. There are now no real remaining traces of the phone. Did they mean to do that? Probably not. The question now is, are we going to see an announcement tomorrow without any sort of event? If not, how big of a screw-up was that?

  • Guest

    TYPO IN YOUR UPDATES. IT’S NOT THE NEXUS 4.

  • Damn you Verizon!!

  • Adrian Rojo

    News flash!!! Android lovers…Nexus 5 confirmed release date Oct. 30th & Nov. 5th at Google play store. Acknowledgement from reliable source only = LG

  • Rocky

    That picture looks doctored… when you go to the site there’s a different graphic behind the phones..

  • Grasshopper239

    So little is unknown at this point, I would be surprised if there was an event. Probably will be a press release with links to all the relevant information, like last years forced cancelation.

  • Andy

    will this work on verizon?

    • aDROIDfreeworld

      There has been not one LG device to visit the FCC this year submitted for use on Verizon. Sprint gets the LG-D820 along with ATT, and tmo. International markets get the LG-D821.

      It is NOT coming to Verizon, as they do not not want it in their network.

      • alexander

        why dont they want it on their network ? It seems to me the problem is verizon and not Google

        • aDROIDfreeworld

          Because it’s unlocked, affordable, and directly challenges Verizon’s Fascist way of dominating it’s customer base via bloatware, intentionally delayed updates(to increase Android sales), and willfully delaying new devices on its network (like the moto x) in order to down play their significance, so they can sell more of their DROID devices, Scamsung phones, bloatdroids, etc,.

      • It’s not just Verizon, Google/LG didn’t include the right bands, & remember bands a make her dance.

        • aDROIDfreeworld

          Yes. This is what I was saying by referencing the model numbers – none of them have proper set of bands to operate on big red… Unless LG makes a last minute Class II permissive change and adds LTE Band 13 to the D820 – a software alteration could easily include support for it . But that would be too good to be true ๐Ÿ™

  • imwaiting

    please release the phone. i m waiting to buy 3 phones since so long.

  • Shaggy723

    I’m tired of all this silliness. Just hurry up and release the dang thing so I can buy it.

  • triumphtriple

    That bottom bezel looks stupid big :/

  • Jim Elliott

    I just looked and don’t see the Nexus 5 at all.

    • Nayners

      This all happened last night. Google has since removed the N5..

  • InclusiontoInnovation

    Well, I am on Verizon with a Galaxy Nexus …. have suspended my cellular …. been using Google Hangouts with friends …. waiting to get this phone and use Aio Wireless pre-paid

  • J.r. Coffie

    I can’t get excited because my carrier(Verizon)
    will NEVER carry this phone.

    • Skittlez

      you can always get excited for new devices.

    • Shaggy723

      Simple solution – switch carriers. I live in a rural area and thought the same thing about leaving Verizon. I left, purchased a gsm Nexus (gsm truly is a superior technology by the way), and now I’m with AT&T saving money every month on one of their prepaid plans and could not be happier with the coverage. And, I will purchase this phone once it’s released and probably visit this site less because my phone gets updated on time and I get everything I want.

      • J.r. Coffie

        I used AT&T before and switched back to Verizon because where I live they have spotty coverage but you doing make an interesting point about GSM and will need to do my homework before I give up my unlimited data & text sand LTE for $70

        • Shaggy723

          Totally understand as I’m sure many are in the same situation. I will say that there are a lot of folks out there that could easily make the switch to At&t without noticing any difference in coverage, and be rid of Verizon.

  • chris125

    I’m on verizon so I care more about 4.4 for my nexus 7 since we all know this wont be on verizon.

    • duckmanbill

      PMA!

  • Rupert Halloway

    What a bargain!

  • findjaysee

    That is one beautiful device! Brand new At&t Moto X (that made me convert from Verizon), you are officially in danger! Haha.

  • schlanz

    I know everyone is doubting that this beast will come to VZW, and I definitely have my doubts as well, but there is one thing that I think could make it happen.

    And that is Edge.

    Verizon is driving to get more Edge sales and this is the kind of phone that could really facilitate that. Even if you have a bunch of people buying outright, full retail, and continuing their unlimited data, respective of their entire customer base it’s a pretty tiny portion of people. Enough people are on their tiered data now that I don’t think they are on a witch-hunt to get the rest of us.

    What I could see happening is the Nexus 5 perhaps won’t be offered at a subsidized price, so it’s either Edge or full retail, or if it is offered at a subsidy, it won’t be a big one; like $199 on contract. It would be win-win for VZW. They are either getting more Edge customers, or the subsidy they give is drastically smaller than what it normally is.

    I guess we will learn soon enough.

    • HerbieDerb

      Cool story bra

    • aDROIDfreeworld

      That is am awwwwfully big stretch… But I’m hope you’re right ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Joshua Bailey

    I could gaze at that beauty all day long…can’t wait to buy a few of these. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Daniel Flores

    Wish I was able to get excited with everyone else. I remember getting all excited for the Galaxy Nexus. But, I’m totally happy with my G2 and unlimited data on Verizon. Plus with the wife’s job, we get a big discount that saves me about $48/mo. Still, I’d like to play with one, and I’m anxious to see what Kit Kat will bring us. Just hope LG doesnt’ take too long to update us.

    • grumpyfuzz

      be prepared, because your lg g2 on verizon won’t get the update for about 6-12 months.

  • AndrewScottRox

    I, for one, welcome our new Nexus overlord.

  • Javier

    I almost had a heart attack

  • Dorian Brooks

    So LTE jacks up the price by a Benji. Nestle/KitKat couldn’t of kicked in more so for a more modest 50-70 dollar price increase?

    • duckmanbill

      ? The N5 has more than just LTE compared to N4. I agree with you though, the price is $50 too high.

      • Dorian Brooks

        I didn’t have time to write an in-depth response listing all the spec enhancements. The crux was/is I thought Google was going the affordable, but not cheap, route, & a $100 price increase somewhat undermines that policy.

    • Vincent Marino

      It’s the same price as the Nexus 4 when it came out (for each 16GB model).

  • Dorian Brooks

    Clever marketing you got going there Google. Well played.

  • Guy Meatdrapes

    Does this mean $399 for the 32gb model? Please

    • Larizard

      that’d be HEAVEN

    • Malik

      That face from Reggie is going to be in my nightmares tonight

  • Eduardo Cruz

    What carriers can you use this phone on? virgin mobile?

  • Josh Martin

    seriously…ugliest phone ever.

    • Jonathan Isenberg

      Not sure if trolling, or completely serious…

      Down voting for good measure…

  • Jacob Svonavec

    $349 would be a sweet price point.

    Ok DL community and staff, we should have a poll on which connectors we would like to see used as a standard on phones, I myself after spending sometime with it would have to say that the lightning connector from Apple is hands down the best/most reliable connector currently used. Lets have a poll because I am tired of replacing my micro usb connectors.

    thanks! Have a good weekend.

    • BobbyG

      why do you replace your micro usb connectors?

  • DanSan

    yes…

  • YinzerRob

    i still can’t believe lg managed to produce an attractive looking phone…

    • Adam Truelove

      Their flip phones were very nice back in the day.

  • MK17

    Can not wait until December to get off of Verizon!

  • Adam Truelove

    Dang, just $50 too expensive. Give me an 8GB version for $280

    • mike dunham

      You realize it is about $250 cheaper than any other flagship device.

      • Adam Truelove

        This is a Nexus, you can’t compare it to a regular flagship phone. I expected less. What price was the Nexus 4 16 GB when it launched?

        EDIT: Nevermind, the N4 was $350 for the 16GB at launch too. So this is right on pace. I guess what I want is an 8 GB for less. 16 GB is too much for me.

        • JRomeo

          the Nexus4, 16GB when it launched was $349

        • Jeff

          It sounds like what you really should want is a higher paying job.

          • Sean Bello

            THIS! lol

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Stop being stupid

        • hkklife

          I hear AT&T has a really sweet 8GB iPhone 4S for ”free” that should suit your needs perfectly. Snapdragon 800 andand only 8GB storage? GTFO. I would be thrilled if they only offered the N5 in 32Gb & 64GB variants. Games and HD video recordings are only getting bigger by the day.

  • panicswhenubered

    I’m seriously considering dumping my week old Note3 and just going back to a Nexus device.

    • Razball

      Same here its a great device lol but I just can’t help it.

    • JRomeo

      Why did you get a Note3 in the first place if you knew the Nexus would be better?

      • panicswhenubered

        lol. I did not spend $600 on the Note3 and Gear watch knowing the Nexus would be better.

        I’m having a hard time getting used to the size of the Note3. Plus, I cannot stand the slight interface lag, even with Nova launcher installed. There’s just too much OEM fluff pre-installed on this thing.

  • Gregg O’Connell

    nexus 5 is already gone ๐Ÿ™

  • Pure Lover

    Hurry up already. My Verizon Gnex is taking a dump. Must stay pure OS with no overlay!

    • hkklife

      Moto X or the new Droids? Still far, far better than Touchwiz, SenseSense, or LG’s skin. Those are still your best options if you want to remain on VerizonVerizon.

  • donkeykong85

    The positive thing is that is showed it was definitely coming to verizon……..if i keep telling myself this it might come true:)

  • JohanV

    Since the first video unveiling the Kit-Kat statue Google has “accidentally” been showing the phone.. Publicity Stunt?

    P.S: Here is an image to get more likes.. Publicity stunt? You tell me. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • nivek31

      I couldn’t sleep either because I wanted to make sure it didn’t become available while I was sleeping. Sad but that’s ok.

    Looks like someone made that in paint lol

  • Keith0606

    Anyone seen the new kitkat twitter post this morning, there is a picture of a dock into the water and it’s shaped like a T. And T must stand for “Today” which means official announcement today!

    • Reginald Jefferson

      Ya know what else T stands for? Three. Half-Life Three confirmed.

      • RavnosCC

        I beg to differ, T-Moble exclusive… sorry guys.

    • Iyvin Benjamin

      The first wood looks like 1 and the other looks like 2 and the dock is a T that means it’s today at 12 EST

  • IrishSid

    Shame it has featureless stock android on it. Oh well, I suppose you can fill it with tons of 3rd party bloatware so you can get a bit of functionality from it. Good job fanboys!

    • Reginald Jefferson

      2/10. Weak troll effort. Try again next time. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Chris

        angry much?

          Yes, because the smiley in my previous post exudes all kinds of anger and hate.

    • jbdan

      That’s what we like stock Android in a svelte package for a reasonable price, gotta love it….unless of course you’ve joined forces with the dark side ๐Ÿ™ did you?

    • Sean Bello

      if you install it, it’s inherently not bloatware because you want it on there. now. get back under your bridge.

      91 mobiles? I wouldn’t even click that link

  • droidlover

    Hate these leaks but I so want the new Nexus! I hope it will be soon available. I got the 4 and even if the gap between these 2 models is not that relevant, well, I’m gonna get the N5 for sure ’cause I usually upgrade my phones as soon as the new comes out. I actually spend a lot of money on technology, that’s why I’m trying to add my items on unioncy.com, a web app that is helping to manage better my “gadgets investments”. Can’t wait to get the N5.

  • Patrick Bateman

    please have active notifications!

    • Reginald Jefferson

      No Samoled screen so no Active Notifications. I think Moto may keep that as a hardware exclusive anyway as a way of differentiating themselves from the competition. Similar to Knock Knock being an LG thing or multi-windows on Samsung.

  • Will there be a Google Edition Nexus 5?

    • Chris

      this IS a google edition. its a nexus after all

  • BJRCollins

    Update 6?

    • DJ SPY

      ??

      • BJRCollins

        It’s a screenshot that continues the authors updates. They took down even the picture of the 5 and returned to what was up before. Self-explanatory.

  • Colton

    my anticipation level..is over 9000!

  • bob

    Yup, and the rumors with the 3000mah battery, 13mp camera, $299 price……ALL WRONG! now i’m sad ๐Ÿ™

    • jbdan

      A top tier hardware spec’d phone for nearly $300 less than any comparable device AND sporting a pure aosp experience. Hmm sounds pretty good to me

      • bob

        the price would most likely have been 299 if they kept the 8gb option, but then again 8gb is quite irrelevant. I

    • GiantJay

      How do you know the specs are wrong? All it says it starting at $349.

  • cgmartin33

    I was seriously going to leave VZW for this when its comes out…but this morning I ran this…

    • bob

      I HATE YOU

    • Reginald Jefferson

      Hot damn that’s fast.

    • cns2007

      Are you in New York? A friend of mine got a similar result.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Depending on where you are you’ll see similar speeds on At&t… and those speeds won’t last long anyway

    • Pengwn

      I was seriously going to leave VZW for this when its comes out…but this morning I ran this… and now I know I am going to leave.

      EDIT: Chicago, IL with full bars of 4G.

  • [A]dri[A]n

    I really want to wanna buy this phone, but that battery D: I sure hope the processor and screen don’t tear that battery apart… Lol

    • TheDrunkenClam

      Love the phone but really wish it had removable battery.
      I have 3 batteries with my Gnex.
      Also, batteries don’t last forever. They can’t simply be recharged an infinite number of times.

      • [A]dri[A]n

        I would have absolutely been fine with a larger Nexus 5 to pack that 3,000mAh LG G2 battery in there.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        The 2300 MAH in the HTC ONE with Sense lasts all day no problem. With the GPE model lasts longer with stock. I don’t think battery is that much of a big deal these days. If it is. Go external

  • pd240

    I really like what google is doing with the nexus program. Low priced unlocked phone with high end specs and stock android. Glad to see they kept the aggressive price points.

  • TheDrunkenClam

    I know this is a little off topic, but I want to leave Verizon and go with Tmobile for this phone…. I’m shopping their individual plans online and i noticed there is indeed an Unlimited (data) for $70.00….
    Is this TRULY unlimited, 4G LTE data? WITHOUT ever being throttled?

    • zurginator

      It’s true. The throttled plans quite explicitly state when you get throttled (200mb, 2gb, 5gb depending on plans).

      • TheDrunkenClam

        I live in Washington DC and make trips back home to visit family in Columbus Ohio.
        When I mapped my rout on their coverage map, it showed “service” (shown in pink) all the way there. Now does this simply mean phone service? Or will I have data all the way there.
        As it is with Verizon now, there are areas along the way where I don’t have data, and I’m okay with that. But I definitely need phone service in case I broke down. If I didn’t have phone service that would be a deal breaker for me.

        • cmbeid

          Same here. Coverage map shows great TMobile service where I live, 2G where my parents live. As it is, I usually only have about 3 bars of service on Verizon. The no contact thing is very appealing

        • Andrew Bockus

          If they’re showing service, then you’re probably going to at least have phone service. I say this because I drove from Florida to Illinois and the whole way I had service with TMobile (prepaid, so no roaming…I was trying them out at the time). By service, I mean that I had 2G a lot during random parts of the trip through the forest and hills parts, but I could nearly always make a call. Hope this helps. (Plus, on their actual plans – non prepaid – they include roaming, so you should be good)

    • JRomeo

      I’ve been using tmobile’s truly unlimited 4G plan on the Nexus4, its HSPA+, but LTE is included whenever they launch that. no throttling. its great!

      • TheDrunkenClam

        Don’t they have LTE in certain cities?

        • JRomeo

          Yes, they recently activated speedy LTE in Orlando, Florida. unfortunately for me, i’m too far south of Orlando.

        • JRomeo

          and YES. its truly unlimited with no throttling, I am on that plan now.

  • nick rodriguez

    hate to be THAT guy… but satisfied with my iPhone 5s. had the gnex but needed a change.

    • Razball

      I was for a little about 2 weeks then got the note 3 and now just waiting for the no lol each nexus has kept me satisfied the longest lol

    • Liderc

      That tiny screen is unusable not to mention the OS…

    • Tim242

      If you were really happy with the 5S, you wouldn’t be here

      • Razball

        God point lol

    • Vanquishgc

      If you had a Note 3, a G2, or Moto X you wouldn’t be saying that…

    • flosserelli

      Good. You can keep it.
      The only iphone worth having is a jailbroken one. Hope you don’t get bored while waiting for that.

    • Razma

      did you have the verizon gnex? cause that would explain alot

  • Liderc

    I may finally be switching from Verizon. This thing is too good to pass up. If the camera is nice it’ll be a must buy.

    • cmbeid

      I am in the same boat as you. Tmobile doesn’t look too bad – coverage is good around me but drops sharply once you leave “city limits.”

      • hoosiercub88

        I think “drops sharply once you leave”city limits.”” is putting it quite lightly.

        Friends don’t let friends use EDGE.

    • Vanquishgc

      yeah but Nexus cameras unfortunately disappoint. GNex was not so good….

  • Might not mean much but notice the hangouts app was put in the dock…maybe it will be our new SMS.

  • miri

    Ever time I think I’ve quelled the desire to unnecessarily upgrade my phone there’s a new Nexus 5 leak.

  • Joshua Jones

    I’ve waited all my life for this.

    • Franklin Ramsey

      Then you need to get out more.

  • Jesse

    Dang, Ron mightve been right about there not being a big show release

  • TheDrizzle

    Looks like the only question left is… where is the headphone jack?

    • Joshua Jones

      Top. Kinda like the Nexus 4

    • Joshua Jones

      Look at the photo that shows the back. Its at the top right of that picture.

      • TheDrizzle

        What was wrong with the bottom headphone jack? Why the switcheroo?

        • zurginator

          I understood with the N4, as it’s built off the Optimus G…. but here it makes no sense, the G2 had it on the bottom.

  • ROB

    Ironic that VZW put the MAXX at $199 this morning and now this…so many people know but no confirmation on the date or final specs.

    • I had a simiiar thought that Verizon lowered the price before a possible Nexus 5 release…..I can hope and dream right?

  • Can’t for this to come to Ve- oh wait

  • johntb

    does anybody have a spec sheet to compare the N5 with the G2?

  • Taylor Abrahamson

    So I think I’m going to leave verizon for this… 0_o

    • jbdan

      Much better reason than I had. I just left because I got tired of their ego. Do It!

  • gbenj

      I’m going to make this and the high resolution picture of the phone my wallpaper until Google come clean and announces the *********** phone.

    • makivelli

      Love it.

  • zombiewolf115

    its already to late

    • an0nim0

      Where’s Iate?

  • trwb

    Cool chin bezel bro. Nice waste of space. Wish every Nexus looked like the galaxy nexus.

    • Jeff

      How do you know it’s wasted? Do you assume the phone is hollow in the bottom? They need space for internal parts, not everything can be screen.

    • Allan

      Notification light and dual speakers are down there.

      • JRomeo

        I don’t remember seeing dual speakers down there.

        • Allan

          Yup, on the bottom of the phone on each side of the USB port.

    • Liderc

      It’s done on purpose. If you look at the way a phone rests in your hand, a super thin bezel at the bottom would make your thumb not line up with the navigation keys. A larger bezel positions your thumb at the correct position to hit navigation keys without having to bend it downward.

    • zurginator

      You do realize this phone has shaved somewhere from 5-10mm off the bottom bezel of the Galaxy Nexus, right?

    • joejoe5709

      Yeah I don’t mind it. It’s smaller than the N4 with a larger screen soooo

      Plus it helps with ergonomics. It’s all good!

      • trwb

        Yea for the price it’s not really that big of a deal. They could have utilized the chin bezel better though. My S3 has the same size bezel but puts buttons on it, in effect freeing up more room for the screen.

        • JRomeo

          if you watch a full screen video, you won’t see those buttons.

          • trwb

            Yea in full screen video. They are there wasting space other times. Thankfully one can change the nav bar height with custom roms, or hide them all together. I have had a GNex and Nex 7, and on screen buttons are a love hate thing with me. One loses around an inch of space on this phone due to bezel and buttons, bad design imo.

  • josh

    it might be obvious but just pointing it out there the wallpaper its a 5

  • eazy

    How can such simplicity be so freakin sexy

  • Caveman

    LOVE my G2, but wish it would have taken a few style cues from the Nexus 5 designers in the next room. “Normal” buttons, what looks to be a nice feel to the back cover, and not so square. Just a few things that would take my G2 from great to perfect (for me at least).

  • joejoe5709

    This was definitely intentional. We’ll see what tomorrow brings but likely just to hold us over the weekend.

    Oh and… It’s gorgeous!!

  • jadeveon da destroyer

    Glad i droped verizon and unlimited data 2 years ago for at&t and 4 gigs of lte. I actually might give my wife my gold iphone5s and sell her 5 for this phone will wait for a review.

    LG should hire a new design department. The software and price is the only reason I’d buy this thing. Ugaleeeee lol

    • Jeff

      I like it, looks nice and clean. I definitely like it more than the Nexus 4, which I never got because of the glass back and I didn’t care for the silver accent. Besides, Google wants their current Nexus devices to look similar, which they now will.

  • Dann

    Both nexus 4 are “Out of inventory”

      I’d settle for the ability to search Hangouts on the phone; that’s been broken since day 1 and there’s been no indication that they intend to fix it.

  • trophynuts

    Let me just throw some gasoline onto the fire – the link points to a “Nexus 5 16GB Black” – if I remember correctly color is not an aspect of the URL for Nexii, so I’m willing to bet we’ll see a white version at launch or very soon after. Just my two cents.

  • Liderc

    Most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. God, it just makes me hate Verizon even more for fking it all up.

  • Jeff

    Well, I think that tears it, I’ll be snagging the 32gb version (assuming there is one) of the Nexus 5 over the Moto X. Not that easy of a decision though, since the Moto X is pretty excellent, just not excellent enough to pay more money for when I also wouldn’t get timely updates, and don’t know how long the updates would even last before the phone is abandoned.

    • donkeykong85

      thats my problem with the moto x as well. updates will likely last a year then dropped and not sure what kind of support it will get from the root community as only nexus devices really seem to last long there.

      • an0nim0

        Which is ironic, since Nexus devices are the least in need of long-term support from the community.

        • donkeykong85

          unless you are on verizon. i dont think the gnex will ever get 4.3.

          • an0nim0

            It’s already well established, there’s no such thing as a Nexus device on Verizon. :-

          • Destroythanet

            There’s at least one Nexus 7 with unlimited data on Verizon. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • an0nim0

            With updates that aren’t curated by Verizon? I’m not holding my breath.

          • JRomeo

            he’s referring to the Nexus7 which was released a few months ago. just pop-in your Verizon LTE sim-card, and you’ll have unlimited data assuming your sim card has it enabled. and it receives updates not curated by verizon because its a Nexus from the google play store.

        • turdbogls

          very true. this (my Gnex) is the only phone i haven’t felt the NEED to ROM. I am on stock 4.3.1 right now, and loving it. I do miss SOME ROM features, but i can live without most of them.

  • Morbid138

    Announce it!!!!!!

  • dannyWHITE

    BIGGEST TEASE EVEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

  • johntb

    as one who is staying on VZW, should I go with the Moto X?? the G2?? or wait to see if the N5 comes out on VZW which I know it won’t DARN YOU VERIZON!!

    • Facing the same decision, still haven’t eliminated HTC ONE from the mix though…

    • donkeykong85

      i am sticking with my gnex for now as its running super fast on aokp

    • NexusMan

      Wait until the Nexus is announced. I’m in the same boat as you. I’m going with either the Nexus or the Moto X, depending on what the Nexus has to offer.

    • joejoe5709

      I’m thinking G2 but Moto X is close second. Maybe hold out to see what 2014 brings.

      • johntb

        part of me thinks, “yeah, wait a little longer and see what happens…” but my gosh, I’ve held out to upgrade since March….. I CAN’T STAND IT ANYMORE! =D

      • johntb

    Still debating between Moto X and N5 but this hype fest is starting to make me lean towards the Nexus. I can’t wait to see what 4.4 has in store for us. That will definitely be the deciding factor for me.

    • MikeSaver

      for real. I’m in the same boat. My main worry with Moto X is that it’ll receive 4.4 update, and that’ll be about it. Isn’t the GS4 just receiving 4.3 now? and that’s like the biggest Android phone out right now.

      Plus, buying Moto X also means shelling out 600 bucks to stay off contract on verizon and keep unlimited.

      • aBabyPenguin

        Yeah, exactly how I feel. Except I am switching from Verizon to T-Mo in January so could pay off the Moto X monthly, or grab the N5 for $350. I’m also thinking the Moto X might get a price drop by January, if so that would really make this a tough decision! Agh, Google needs to show Kit-Kat nao!

          Because they oppose allowing anyone other than themselves control over the devices on their network.

          • jmsbwmn

            Except for Apple…

          • an0nim0

            Don’t think for a second that’s not begrudgingly.

          • Franklin Ramsey

            That’s because, sadly, 50% of their phone sales are still Apple.

          • T4rd

            And developer editions…

          • jmsbwmn

            To Col_Angus: Knowing the history of the iPhone explains why Apple has the control that they have. I have nothing negative to say about that. Regarding Google’s leverage – they have none. They supply a free, open-source operating system that hardware manufacturers use in their mobile devices. If anyone else has a chance to leverage themselves in the marketplace, it’s Samsung. As a GS4 owner, I’d be all for it. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Even if Google gave up all controls, it still won’t happen — think about it, a $349 top of the line spec smartphone? Every grandfathered unlimited plan user now has a cheap way to extend their plan w/o paying $600 to $700 full price for a new smartphone. Think about it, the subsidized Note 3 costs just a bit less than the 16Gb Nexus 5.

          • hoosiercub88

            What is this miraculous way of extending a plan without spending $600-700? The loophole on the Note 3 for renewing with unlimited is gone, and the device payment plan still sets you out an additional $50 a month on your bill..

          • kronikings

            The loophole is paying extra $10 a month for a second line that you attach a non data phone to.

          • hoosiercub88

            Which only works if you have a plan that doesn’t already have five lines.

          • Jeff C

            loophole is still there i tell ya! i did it! go in to the store, have them transfer over your upgrade to another line, tell them you wanna keep unlimited, viola! (assuming youre on family plan)

          • SetNick

            I dont understand. So you just go in have them add a line. Transfer your upgrade to a non data phone. And they actually let you use the upgrade for any phone you want??

          • Jeff C

            i went in to my verizon store, told them my dad wanted the note 3 and if i could give him my upgrade while keeping unlimited. kid said yea I can do that. so im assuming if you combine what i did with what that other guy said about starting a new line, you’re good. once i got the phone i cancelled the data on my dad’s line and he’s back to $10 a month

          • 1TallTXn

            Upgrade your phone yourself, without going through VZW or paying full-retail from VZW.

        • Col_Angus

          Look how they handled the Galaxy Nexus, that should be enough to reveal Verizon’s true colors. They’re control freaks. I’m seriously considering leaving Verizon in December, but nobody else has reliable service in my rural corner of nowhereville.

          • Unlimited TETHERING is what is holding me back. I’ve gone beyond cutting the cable and use VZ for main home Wi-Fi

          • JRomeo

            I do unlimited tethering with t-mobile already…. using a Nexus of course, that’s the only way it’ll work. and you’ll have to have their top tier 4G data plan also.

          • Isn’t the hot spot limited to 5 GB or something even with their best plan? Or is that just for the main/system tethering app and a third party one doesn’t go towards it

          • JRomeo

            It is true that t-mobile has a “limit” on tethering, even for their truly unlimited 4G data plan. However, if the android phone’s O.S. you are using is one which is modified by T-Mobile (hint: they ALL are, except Nexus), then T-Mobile will know how much tethering you are doing. However on an un-modified stock Nexus phone. you can tether away all the time with no restrictions… T-Mobile would never know about it. Unless you are downloading some sort of web traffic which an android tablet or android phone would never download (such as windows updates) then perhaps they might know. but tethering to your tablet…… it works flawless all the time, at least in my experience with no caps, not even a 5GB cap. truly unlimited, no throttling… as long as you pick that specific data plan.

          You can’t stand him? Why because he’s a good guy? Because he would actually put this country in the right direction? You’d rather raise the debt ceiling again and again until our dollars are worth pennies? You’d rather pay out the ass for lazy peoples health care? I can’t stand people like you. Bet you voted for the dictator Obama twice.

          • UnixPimp

            Good guy? You like an idiot that says the US should go back on the gold standard? Every economist that has any brains knows that the gold standard does not work in today’s society. Do you even know why the US went off the gold standard? BTW, it was Richard Nixon, a Republican, who took the US off the gold standard and put us on the fiat system. There is a valid reason why he did that, but I would rather you get your “good guy” to explain why it was a bad idea.
            Ron Paul is a crazy old koot who kept complaining about government waste, but he worked like a mad man to get federal dollars flowing to his district. This means he was the world’s biggest hypocrite, and all the Paultards that followed him were complete morons.

          • Guest

            Yeah, Ron Paul is a not a good guy….he’s a great guy! I love how you take to name calling to “prove” your point. The fiat system, always, always collapses throughout history, but it’s a good idea right?
            Perhaps you should read some of Ron Paul’s books to know what he really thinks. I would suggest End the Fed, as a good start.

            I feel sorry for you. Believing the propaganda. You probably think FDR saved us from the Depression.

          • thetruthhurtsyourfeelings

            I will offer you some advice tho. Stop eating from the propaganda machine. Unless you wanna be on the hunted list when the economy crashes. Because it is going to crash. Do some f*n research, instead of getting spoon fed lies from mainstream media.

          • anna willoughby

            Saying the economy is going to crash is like saying there will be a hurricane some day. Of course it will crash. Economies crash no matter how well designed and stable they are (and ours is currently kludged together and pathetically in need of some attempt at design). However in the libertarian paradise envisioned by such intellectually robust and well-meaning individuals such as Mr. Paul, there would be little to no protection for those most vulnerable to the kinds of inevitable downturns and collapses all economic systems are prone to.

            Now…let’s get back to talking about pretty phones.

            ^–great response. Very illuminating and thought-provoking. I see why Ron Paul is president today.

          • kderentz

            Not every economist says that …. only the ones that work for the NYT or those that follow keynesian economics. There are tons of economists that follow austrian economics instead that believe in the gold standard or pegging the currency to some type of backing.

            Here is good video to watch and learn a little something on our current fiat system and what a scam it is:

            Lol you’re the idiot. All money should have a standard to measure with, like Au. Most idiots don’t realize that we no longer use gold standard is because 1) Our country has no gold (why can’t even our president visit Fort Knox?), hint… Because we spent it all, and if that was made public our country will have a panick attack, and the dollar will be worth literally nothing. 2) With the Gold Standard we couldn’t just print money out of thin air to pay our bills! Guess what we have been doing since Barack got elected? Our dollar is going to be worth less than Chinese yuan in 10 years! We will be the country manufacturing for pennies on the dollar (in todays terms). Don’t believe me? Look it up dumbo, The Gold standard is the only real way to measure the worth of a currency. Inflation is going to send us into a great depression and whoever elected Barack can go stick your head in the sand, y’all have gotten so good at it!

          • BJRCollins

            It was FDR who ended the gold standard proper. After WWII the world had the Bretton Woods system in which the major currencies of the world were pegged to one another (Dollar/Renminbi for a current example) and the US dollar was agreed as the currency of reserve. Nixon removed the peg, and let the dollar float.

          • Papagoose

            Hostile much? The lady doesn’t care for Ron Paul. Why do you care who she likes or dislikes? Ron Paul ran for President multiple times and lost. Badly. Barack Obama is the twice-elected President of the United States and is not a dictator. You may not like him or his politics, but THAT doesn’t make him a dictator.

          • Adam Truelove

            I know right, our current health care system is amazing!! It’s so simple and affordable, especially to those who are self employed. That’s why the US is known for the having the best health care system on earth!!

          • SetNick

            If you really dig deep into the “new healthcare”, you will see it is not better…its worse. If you slip up, you are screwed…which is the same as the “old System”. US healthcare is going to suck no matter what. We are a greedy society that believes in stepping on each other to get ahead. That will never work. Neither will Obamacare…

          • kderentz

            Agreed. I work in healthcare. All the new healthcare law is a a way for insurance companies to make MORE money. They lobbied the entire time. If you really think it was for the benefit of the people you are very naive. By forcing everyone to have insurance it is automatic revenue for the Ins companies as now they have more clients, they also pass the costs on to the healthier customers to make up for the payouts on the unhealthy customers. Think about it. Its common sense.

          • MoMoney

            Yep, it’s all about more money in the pockets of the insurance companies. . . nothing more. Now that everyone will be forced into it they will begin increasing rates, costs, and limit care. . . .

            It’s social security 2.0.

          • anna willoughby

            I agree with some of this. I also agree that the Affordable Care Act (a very pro-business, conservative attempt at making SOME kind of movement on health care) is so far from ideal. However, it did help some more young people get into the insurance pools (myself included) and at least has pushed the issue into the forefront of our nation’s discourse. I think it’s a first step, and it’s a flawed one, but better than not doing anything. The pre-existing conditions and dependent care provisions alone will do a lot of good for people, I think more than the harm it will do. We will see over the next few years whether or not that is the case, and I’m certainly open to the possibility that it may be a monumental failure. More motivation to get it right next time, though.

          • rals

            Obamacare is so amazing that even the president and his minions are exempt from it. I mean, it really is amazing.

          • TheDrunkenClam

            I wish I could upvote your comment twice, if not a hundred times.

          • thetruthhurtsyourfeelings

            why are you jerking it to android? this isn’t a porn site either. i’m glad i could turn you off.

            I voted for the dictator. Next time you can vote for the Canadian.
            Ted Cruz the “little Satan”

          • conservative

            Ted cruz is one of the few good American politicians left

          • Iphone hater

            He is not American. He was born In Canada. Now, when I was stationed in Germany, I met and married a German girl. She is not American. We have been married over twenty years. But that Ted Cruz. I knew when he was running for Senate here in Texas that he was a evil bastard.

          • rukiddingme

            Yes Ted Cruz… the sole hero in the fight against Obamacare.

            Because i would LOVE for to pay 30k a year again in hospital bills when the insurance says “sorry your wife’s lupus is a pre-existing condition, pay it yourself… here’s a pamphlet on how to live with an incurable disease”

            I love the ACA hate. Just love it. No one ever thinks about it cause healthcare is never an issue for them.

          • rals

            So I guess you don’t know about death panels incorporated in that so bill…hmmm.

          • LOLRUSERIOUS

            HAHAHAHA SURELY you’re not talking about the same death panel brought up by Sarah Palin that was debunked in CONGRESS.

          • rals

            oh because congress has a lot of credibility right? Let me know that goes?

          • dackjaniels

            I love your shift

            “ugh everyone is stoopid. Congress is stoopid”

            Go home, you’re drunk.
            Let me know how that goes? [sic]

          • rals

            right, and Obama isn’t one. Please let me know how your healthcare system is going, and if you got your EBT card working again.Enjoy!

          • Ron Paul
        • rals

          Yeah, it makes me sad for people like you who believe your lord and savior Obama will bring divinity to you. Ron Paul has fought for years with the private federal reserve, and all corrupt politicians in D.C. You people truly make me sick.

          • makivelli

            If I read this comment string correctly, and I’m probably positive that I maybe did, then Ron Paul will love the Nexus 5 and will likely use it to play Civilization V and Richard Nixon will hate it because it isn’t made of gold.

          • thetruthhurtsyourfeelings

            precisely!

          • George

            C’mon man how about adding something intelligent to a conversation and forget the insults. You’re not going to change anyone’s mind by insulting them. Practice explaining your rationale not just the outcome of it. It’ll be hard at first but it will help you discover who you really are. You will be a happier person.

          • Papagoose

            George, all he’s got is insults, venom, hate and misplaced anger. Better he take it out here from the basement of his parents’ house – I’d hate to think the damage that such an angry person could do out in public.

      • michael arazan

        I would love if Google made an LTE only Nexus 5 for verizon that you could just slap an lte sim into like the New N 7 2013. I’d gladly give up cdma 3g back up for no service until in a 4g area again for it.

        • Franklin Ramsey

          It would be sort of like having T-Mobile service! I mean, The only places I drop from 4G anymore on Verizon is on the road usually in the middle of nowhere.

        • TheWenger

          Are you planning on using your phone as a phone?

          • Guy Meatdrapes

            Your phone is not a phone. Your phone is for football.

    • Johngi

      Dont you already know the specs?

      • JRomeo

        some sites say battery life is 2300 others say 2700, and some say 3000mAh

      • Fiorta

        No… I haven’t seen anything but rumor posts. If there is a real spec sheet please link!

    Holy crap!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Maxwell Morrow

    Do want.

  • Jpx

    Ahh will be desperately checking news of the announcement starting today

    Hopefully 32gig will be $400

  • Ray

    $350 for a 16GB model ? OUCH !

    • Buur

      It’s a steal compared to what similar devices cost off-contract.

    • Matt Hoenig

      Remember that’s OFF contract!

    • Skittlez

      That’s how much the nexus 4 was. Worth it

      • Bob G

        Exactly! No one was complaining then. Geez kids today.

        • bob

          there was an 8gb option for $50 though.

    • Christopher Moore

      Ouch as in I have a paper cut from the money being thrown at the screen? Or Ouch, I can’t buy one yet? I get confused.

    • Steve B

      Same price as last year, just as expected…

    • William_Morris

      Yes, 16GB model for $350.00 with LTE antennas packed inside… because that is sooooooooo cheap to include. /s

  • TheRunner024

    Yes.

  • Safe to say hangout confirmed as the new messaging app? Probably, as it is on the home screen where the messaging app normally would be. At least in my opinion, where it would normally be.

    • Luxferro

      If you’ve been following the nexus 5, or reading any number of android sites, you’d have known that about a week ago.

      • I was aware of the rumors, but I think now that we have official photos, its actually safe to say it confirmed. Cant really be more official than Google themselves ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Christopher Moore

        You were correct but know it shows the Nexus 4.

      • NexusMan

        Check your link…you just posted a link to the Nexus 4.

      • NexusMan

        No it’s not. Check your link. You just posted a link to the Nexus 4.

        • BiggiePhat

          They switch it back. At the time of the post it was the Nexus 5.

          • NexusMan

            I know. I’m saying it’s gone now.

  • Al-Burrit0

    ugh, about to get the moto x tomorrow and now this!!

    • sk102704

      I just got the Moto X two days ago and trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

      • Kamesen

        Yes but you either paid $300 more off-contract, or you will end up paying way more than that $100 difference over the course of the next 2 years… Gosh I hate Big 3…

        • sk102704

          I’m OK with that. I really wanted a Nexus 5 but my phone crapped out on me so I couldn’t wait so I decided I’ll get the Moto X this year and get the Nexus 6 (or whatever it will be called) next year.

          To be honest with you I was pissed and felt like I was being forced to settle when the Nexus was so close but after spending just two days with my Moto X, I am very pleasantly surprised and happy with my purchase.

          I also hate the big 3

          • Kamesen

            I feel you bro. AIO here I come. Those $30 I’ll save every month will pay for this phone in a year and put money in my pocket for the next one at the end of 2 years.

      • Al-Burrit0

        Yup I did it, got the Moto X and it did not disappoint.:-)

        • sk102704

          Nice! Tomorrow makes one week for me and believe it or not I love this phone even more than when I first got it! Enjoy!

      No it’s not.

    • aBabyPenguin

      I see it

      • NexusMan

        Exit the play store and go back in. The Nexus 5 has been replaced by the Nexus 4.

  • NemaCystX

    Something really neat in those wallpapers for the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7
    never noticed it until the first leak but

    the Nexus 5 wallpaper looks like a cropped 5
    the Nexus 7 wallpaper looks like a cropped 7

    it will be interesting to see the Nexus 10 this time around since Sammy isn’t going to be making it

    • Al-Burrit0

      Yea pretty sweet! Really digging the white icons!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • StuckOnVerizonForever

      And you know that how? It’s going to be Samsung. Asus would ruin it with their horrible QC.

      • Ben Edwards

        There’s been a few leaks from various retailers that show the Nexus 10 as an Asus product.

    • NexusMan

      I pointed that out last week and got sarcastically dismissed as a faux detective by another poster, lol. I was stating how the phone was clearly going to be called the Nexus 5, since the wallpaper had an abstract 5 just like the Nexus 7 did. Google has been doing that since the 1st Nexus 7. That time, the pic of the device on the box was an abstract 7. Then with the New Nexus 7, the box pic AND the wallpaper were abstract 7s and now the Nexus 5 wallpaper is also an abstract 5. They skipped this trend for the 10 and 4 for some reason.

      • Ian Smith

        yeah, that was me! sup bud.

      • zurginator

        When it comes to boxes, it can’t be done for a 4, 5, or 10. When it comes to backgrounds…. why they didn’t do so still boggles my mind.
