A Picture of the Nexus 5 Again…Just Because It’s Pretty.

nexus 5 official big

Hello again, Nexus 5. We don’t know exactly when you will arrive, but we hope it is soon.

Oh, and Kit Kat by itself.

On the Moto X for the dreamers.

That is all.

    @jamdev12 go to hell!!!!

    My Gnex is on it’s last legs. I want a pure device from Verizon. Will I turn into a skeleton grasping my poor Gnex before this happens?

    I never understood why the Home/Back/Menu button are on the screen. If the phone has a chin, just put the buttons there, not protruding buttons but smooth buttons. That way you get more real-estate on your screen. The N5 has so much room on its chin… Is there a manufacturer advantage to putting Home/Back/Menu on the screen?

    • FritoDorito

      There’s several reasons. First of all, virtual buttons are WAY more responsive than capacitive keys. Granted, that’s not saying much, considering capacitive keys have god awful responsiveness. Second, and most importantly, virtual buttons are part of the software, so they can always be changed and altered, and their function can be updated with the OS. They can also adapt to the hardware a disappear when you need the full screen, like when watching a video.

      What I don’t understand is why people are obsessed with eliminating the chin and forehead, aka, the area I can grip when holding he phone in landscape so I don’t have to uncomfortably brace the sides of the phone between my thumbs and index fingers for two hours while I watch a movie.

    If only it didn’t have a butt chin…

    the wallpaper looks like a 5 or is that just me?

    Has to be the most beautiful phone to date. I’m still curious why they made such a large camera “hole” but didn’t make the lense actually big? You’d think they could have made an incredible camera by using that size for the lense. I’m very curious to see how that will be utilized with what has to be a new type of camera hardware and software.

      My guess is for OIS.

    Although I want to buy this the moment its available, I will be waiting to make sure that the Sprint version can be flashed for use on my beloved Page Plus Verizon MVNO. $30/month for me with Verizon coverage. Just can’t beat that.

    Damn. I told myself I would wait to get a Moto x when verizon releases Moto maker for verizon, but the white one looks so good. I still think the nexus 5 looks better tho and I’m sure I’ll forget about the X when that phone drops on us later this month (or hopefully early next month). I sure hope Google and LG have the supplies down this time around. Last year was a nightmare for any hopeful nexus 4 customer.

      It is not coming to Verizon. Get your Moto X and be happy!

  • angermeans

    Beautiful device. The OS looks so clean with just minor improvements. Can’t wait to get my hands on this phone.

  • carluverdrm2004

    Ouch, on the Moto X for dreamers? I’m about to get this device in less than a month, and you’re telling me it likely won’t get 4.4?

  • Quesi S

    The time says 4:40… 4.4 KitKat

  • DJ SPY

    Do you think this phone will support the Square Card Reader? The new DROIDS, Moto X and Nexus 7 don’t.

  • Champloo

    If the hangouts app is replacing messaging as speculated, does this mean I’ll be able to receive text messages over wi-fi, even if I have no cell signal?

    I currently do this using talkatone/google voice, but it would be cool if I had a 1 stop app for all my messaging needs.

  • beng8686

    Eww that UI is reminding me more and more of the iPhone’s Toys r us look.

    Edit: Maybe its just the wallpaper….

  • Kevin Zukerman

    Man, that wallpaper is SOOOOO clever.

  • dannyWHITE

    LG sure knows how to make a purrrrrrty Nexus!

  • joejoe5709

    Lol. You guys are funny. Thanks for this. At least I know I’m not the only one drooling over this phone.
