Nexus 5 Orders Already Shipping!

nexus 5 official

Whoa, Nexus 5 orders are already shipping just hours after some of you placed your orders. Ours have yet to ship, but at least three readers have pinged us with shipment notifications. Assuming you all placed your order with 2-3 shipping, you could have your phone by Monday. Good job, Google, you may have done a launch right.

If yours has shipped, let us know which model you ordered and what your shipping parameters were.

nexus 5 order

Cheers @BillStebbins, @mpetty423 and Droidzilla!

  • WooChop

    32GB Black Nexus 5. Shipping says it shipped Friday and should be delivered Tuesday, November 5, but the most recent status says “Departed Hodgkins, IN” on Saturday at 5AM. Status hasn’t changed as of 3:30PM CST on Monday, November 4. It was standard ground shipping to Minnesota, but the lack of updates since Saturday has me worried.

  • gregcoonie

    32gb white ordered on thursday has shipped waiting for the delivery… hopefully will get it tomorrow

  • ArunNexus4to5

    Tax – $33.49 USD in IL… My device has been shipped and should have it by tomorrow. 32 GB White Nexus 5

  • Shane Draper

    $92.70!!!! tax in UK and $16 shipphing a 32gb cost me $556.26

  • Erik

    Just shipped this morning, which really means it hasn’t shipped because it’s Sunday =p. Will ship tomorrow, and will probably arrive Tuesday. Excited! 32GB Black

  • NewNexusUser

    Mine has shipped (which surprised me) because it had said it wouldn’t ship till the 8th. It’s scheduled to arrive by Wednesday.

    Ordered the…
    White Nexus 5 16GB
    w/ normal standard shipping!

    • NewNexusUser

      P.S. Paid $21.54 in taxes and 9.99 in shipping

  • Daniel

    Mine already shiped! Black, 16Gb.

  • David Gray

    I ordered mine at about 7:15am on Friday (Melbourne time). It’s currently Monday, and my parcel is in Australia, apparently in the hands of the “authorized agent” who will be making the final delivery.

    I didn’t order the Nexus 4 when it came out (I had only just got my Galaxy Nexus around that time) but it sounds like the launch was much smoother. There are delays in shipping units that were ordered later, but nothing too drastic (shipping later this week)

  • Sandy

    I just ordered mine and it says “ships in 2-3 weeks” Oh dear!!!!

  • rlorenz

    Mine had an expected ship date of 11/15, and it just shipped! Ordered at 6:30 PM after work

  • Michael Robinson

    I ordered min at 4pm mst on Halloween and just got an e-mail this morning that it shipped. It had previously stated Nov. 15th, so it looks like they are shipping fast.

  • Kaenon

    Ordered a white 32GB at 3:02pm EST launch day and just got the shipping notice today at 4:14pm EST

  • newgen87

    Just got my shipping notification today and my est ship date was by November 8th, this is for the 32gb White! Sooooo Excited already ordered some other cases too!

  • theNewerYork Press

    mine just shipped 🙂

  • nexusonthebrain

    My 32gb black was bought with the November 8th ship by date, just got the email that the shipping label was produced this morning!!!!

  • Mallahet

    Just got an email confirming my shipment last night! No actual tracking yet, so the same label printed that others have had. Ordered the 32gb Black at 5pm CST on Thursday. My order on Google’s page still says leaving warehouse by 11/15, but I have the shipment confirmation email.. So maybe it’s shipping soon, or on the 15th?

  • tgfjljgc

    Don’t cry The price in Finland is about 530€ – 650€ which is 715$-877$….and you guys say You have big taxe’s

  • tdot321

    $50 tax in toronto think you guys have problems ?

  • nnyan

    Just got my shipping confirmation email at 1:54am this morning. Order was for 32GB black with 2nd day shipping to California (total was $446.91). Checking the tracking number it indicates a label was created but has not shown up in their facility yet.

  • Joe Mihalich

    Mine shipped on Friday. Did 2 day shipping. I ordered it around 1pm on day it was available.

  • Keith0606

    My shipping confirm just hit early this morning and I placed the order at 2:11 on Thursday.

  • Iyvin Benjamin

    I just looked at my tracking number and it shows that it will be delivered tomorrow by the end of the day

  • The article is confusing. The screenshot says “ships by Nov 5” which is a Tuesday. It also shows the customer chose 2 day shipping, which is by far one of the fastest methods. If it ships on tuesday, with a 2 day shipping the earliest one can get a Nexus 5 is a Thursday or Friday Nov 7-8. Not moday. Am I missing something?

    • Karthik

      Mine also says ships by Nov 5. But got a mail from google play saying the order has already shipped. Its a case of early delivery by google 🙂

  • Karthik

    Ordered from Durham, NC. The order has already shipped B-) Tax still high at 25 bucks :-/

  • Shawn Magm

    Ordered a 32 GB Black within 2-3 hours. Got estimated shipping date of 11/8, but got notice today (Friday ~ 20:00) that it shipped.

  • Darien Folden

    32$ in tax New York 🙁

  • Jess B

    My black 32 GB shipped from KY today, 2 day to MD with delivery expected Monday.

  • Joseph Williams

    Got a shipping email last night around 2AM (ET). 2-day to PA.

  • Evan

    white 32gb got confirmation that it shipped last night.

  • me

    I received the Gmail showing that my order had shipped, Black 32GB Nexus 5. I did the 2-day shipping. They’re using UPS, so delivery on Saturday is unlikely. I should be receiving the phone Monday night.

    Now the question is, What do I do with my LG G2?

    • vincent scala

      selling my G2 on craigslist for 350 already got like 10 people interested in buying

  • JeffColorado

    Mine has not yet shipped =(

    • John Motschenbacher

      same here….wtf my order was complete 7 min after launch

  • heroooooooorara

    Anyone else having the tracking not show up? I’ve clicked the tracking link in the email and says cant find my shipment. I NEEDS DA NEXUS NAO!

  • markgbe

    Google did a very good job with this roll out. Mine shipped, can’t wait to get it.

  • trwb

    Anyone’s still not ship yet? Ordered mine early yesterday.

    • grumpyfuzz

      Did you get two day or ground? Yours could have shipped by now, since you made this comment 6 hours ago. But mine still hasn’t shipped with ground.

      • trwb

        My shipping was 3-5 days, which is ground I believe. Mine still has not shipped yet unfortunately.

        • Adham Naiem

          Same here 32GB,White ordered at 2:20 PM Thursday. got (3-5 day shipping) still hasn’t shipped. If I knew they were processing all the 2 days first i would shelled out for the extra 4 bucks

          • ilovetechnology

            I ordered at 2:12pm ET with two day shipping and mine hasn’t shipped yet.

          • ilovetechnology

            For what it’s worth: both my orders (one at 2:12pm and the other at 2:17pm eastern) have now shipped. Hopefully they get here Tuesday!

        • grumpyfuzz

          Mine shipped! Ordered at 2:11 eastern, shipped 9:30 today.

          • trwb

            Mine finally shipped too!

  • Tony Byatt

    Ooops, couldn’t wait until next week…

    Ordered a white 32GB, no tax in Louisiana…

    Now the wait begins, listed at 2-3 weeks but the money has already been taken from my account, maybe it’ll ship sooner…fingers crossed…

  • Humberto

    any of you guys with shipping notifications getting a log from UPS yet? any delivery dates listed?

  • Daniel Garcia

    Got the notice last night that both the White and black I ordered are shipping. 🙂

  • Jeff

    Nexus 5 (32GB, Black) – Shipped (2 day shipping)

    • JayBeeZee

      Cheers! I also ordered around 1:05 Central and it has shipped.

      Or at least a tracking label has been generated so UPS pickup is imminent.

  • 16GB black ordered at 11:20 PST with 2-day delivery, on its way.

  • jesse

    32gb white , Austin Texas, ordered 11:06 am pst. Shipped receipt 9:52 pm pst. 2 business day delivery.

    Switching from Verizon to Tmobile. Goodbye verizon unlimited data, it was a good run.

  • Frank

    Mine just shipped. 16 gig Black. Ordered at 2:03 EST. Shipped at 12:52 EST. 2 day shipping to New York. Still not in UPS’s system so not sure when arrival is yet.

  • Suby

    Just got my shipping email. 16gb black here. Ordered at 2:06 pm est. 1-2 day shipping

  • Vetal

    Just got my tracking # 32gb black. Order went through 11:05:07pacific. 2 day shipping. This is way better than last year’s nexus 4 purchase.

  • Allan

    Just got my shipped confirmation at 9:38 PM PST and I ordered at 11:20 AM PST. Good enough for me!

  • cromo8

    Where is it shipping from

    • Mine says

      Google Inc.
      1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
      Mountain View
      United States

    • Allan

      Depends where you live. I’m sure they have more than one distribution center. Mine is coming from Louisville, KY.

  • Dave Whyte

    ordered within the first minute and my confirmation states ship by Nov. 5th when it was originally 1-2 days. Anyone else seeing this?

    • Frank

      I ordered around the same time frame. And I just got my shipping confirmation. Said leaves warehouse by November 5th for me all day too. Wouldn’t be worried.

      • Dave Whyte

        Yeah guess I was worried for nothing had my shipping confirmation this morning.

  • rocs_macho

    2-3 & 3-4 week wait time? Dafuq kind of limited inventory is this?

  • Joseph Barrientos

    beat me by 15 min, hasnt shipped yet 🙁

  • Mike

    I usually lurk instead of posting. I just want everyone to know that my bank decided today would be a good day to conduct 6 hours worth of updates, effectively freezing ACH transfers. I watched my pending paycheck sit there pending while the White 32GB Nexus hung on as the last phone to be sold out. Now it’s a 3-4 week wait.

  • Nazology

    Just called my local best buy and asked about the nexus 5 ” we don’t have a display up but you can come in tomorrow and buy it, we open at 8am. I’m in Chicago .

    • NAZology

      Went in this morning. They didn’t have it. Lol

    • ilovetechnology

      Did you get one from best buy? My local best buy doesn’t have them and had never heard of it…surprise, surprise.

  • Bob

    VW claim they will activate the Nexus 5, is there any down side here?

  • ROB

    Bye Bye Verizon

  • droidftw

    My LG G2 order shipped 😛

    I was able to convince Verizon to let me out of my last year with my GNex 🙂

  • Tony Byatt

    I hope to order a white 32GB next week if in stock…fingers crossed…

  • Boblank84

    Great. I spent all morning hitting f5 on the play store and now all afternoon refrshing my gmail account. thanks allot Droid-life for making this a very un productive day.

  • Rob

    Wow, no Ron Paul it’s Happening GIF? where are ye?

  • MatthewDiluzio

    Sucks because I bought mine a full 15 seconds earlier! Lol soon I hope

  • nonexus4me

    WTF…my order was cancelled for some reason and now the lead time is 2-4 weeks. I’m pissed and no one can tell me why my original order was cancelled

    • Humberto

      only reason i can think of could be insuficient funds or expired card or miss matching numbers on the card used. Other than that Google has no reason to cancel your order.

  • Thomas

    Having learned my lesson from the N4 debacle, I created a shell script that’s been running on one of my servers and checking the links every 30 seconds. When the links went live, it sent an E-Mail and SMS to myself, my wife and a friend so that I would be sure not to miss it. I placed my first order (Black 32GB) at 2:00:30 EST. I placed a second order for a White 32GB model at 2:03:37. I received the order confirmation emails at 2:00 and 2:03 (instantly) and both charges have hit my card. I’ve yet to receive a shipping confirmation.

    • Matthew DiGiacomo

      Same here.

    • shipper

      Same. I set up a cron job that was checking twice a minute. Ordered just about as soon as the page went live, and mine hasn’t shipped.

    • Wyatt Neal


      I’m so proud of people that can pull this kind of stuff together themselves, it gives me hope that humanity isn’t totally lost yet.

  • geedee82

    Are there any other online retailers selling this thing? Or any that have said they will in the future? The one freakin day I’m actually busy at work and this sh!t happens, guess I missed out for now:(

    Right now on Google Play they all say “leaves warehouse in 3-4 weeks.” Accept the black 32gig, that one says 2-3 weeks. I can’t wait that long!

    • Matthew DiGiacomo

      I’d say there’s a good chance Best Buy will have them tomorrow or very soon. Slightly less chance that Amazon will carry it but I think they will.

      • geedee82

        Okay thanks. I’m going to wait a few days then and see if I can get it quicker from somewhere else.

  • hurrrrdurrrr

    Got my 32gb black order in 1.5 minutes faster than the order shown in the picture. I also chose 2 day shipping. Mine still says pending.

    • Matthew DiGiacomo

      Same here, 16 GB.

  • Jess B

    I ordered a black 32 GB at 2:03 EST with 2-3 day shipping and it still says pending. Would love to have it Monday, or Saturday by some miracle.

  • J Dub

    My order time is 2:06 pm EST and still shows pending. That puts it 3 minutes after the shot above. I would like to think that all orders that got the “shipping in 1 to 2 days” would ship today. Especially if coming from the west coast. That would put my order at 11am. I work in the shipping field and for a standard product like this you should be able to pick, box, and ship in about 2 minutes or less per phone.

  • Marco Mendoza

    I won’t get mine until December

  • interstellarmind

    Hmmm.. I ordered two (a white and black) at 1:04pm (EST). …Still nothing.

    I wonder if ordering two that are also different colors gums up the works a bit?

  • Dennis J

    i ordered the nexus 5 32gb white. so far it says leaves warehouse by Nov 5th…maybe sooner who knows lol

    • interstellarmind

      Thanks for clarifying it was a Nexus 5. I would’ve thought you were talking about a SGIV or something 🙂

    • grumpyfuzz

      Mine says that too, it saying ‘by’ means that is the latest date it can leave the warehouse and might leave earlier.

    • T S

      mine just shipped from Louisville. will be delivered on Nov 5th. exciting times!

  • FarmerTechno

    Google cancelled my order 30 minutes ago and claimed it was cancelled by the user. Anyone else getting this?

    • Roswell

      Same thing here…although when I called, the guy said he couldn’t tell me why because they weren’t given that information.

  • thnxVZW

    I already received my Verizon Nexus 5….. yup I sure did.

  • ctowne

    Mine shipped! 32GB Black model

    • gregbeal

      When did you order?

    • Derin Richardson

      Argghhh! No way! Exactly what time did you order yours?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      DAMN YOU! Was your date 11/5?

  • Whoa. I was wondering about that. They’ve classically surprised us by shipping them early. Still, nothing on mine yet. Still “Pending.”

  • Droidzilla

    Woot! That’s my order right there. Can’t wait; Christmas on Halloween!

  • Jon Garside

    11.16 for me. Still shows as pending

  • JDMendiola

    @Kellex B – which one did you end up grabbing ? white/black 16/32 ?
    (sorry if already answered)

  • shipper

    And I’m once again saddened that devices aren’t shipping in order of order time 🙁

    • Benjamen Meiers

      They are shipping in order of time based upon where the orders took place. Would you really want a distribution centre shipping it to you across the country?

      Some centres are shipping earlier. But they are not going to hold onto half their stock because a different distribution centre hasn’t shipped yet.

  • nomar

    need someone to stick a verizon sim card in this thing and see if it works, I am hoping for the same results as the nexus 7 lte.

    • jack584

      If hyou are in an area that hasVerizon band 4 AWS LTE, it will work with data only. But if there’s no band 4 AWS in your area, it won’t work.

      • nomar

        Question, if it works on Sprint and you are a Sprint customer but you travel thru an area where sprint roams off Verizon does this mean your phone stops working. This is a common thing where I live, have great 4g lte coverage from vzw and only 3g coverage from sprint within a few miles of the city, if you go off into the rural areas all Sprint customers roam off Verizon. I actully had a friend you got dropped from Sprint because he was roaming to much.

    • Matthew DiGiacomo

      I can try as soon as I get mine.

    • Benjamen Meiers

      Won’t 3G still work?

      • Chris Wallace

        3G on Verizon uses CDMA

        • Michael

          This has CDMA Radios in it, right? It works on sprint. The specs list all sorts of radios in there.

          • trwb

            Sprints 3g network is different than Verizons 3g network. Sprint 3g radio will not work on Verizon.

  • JDMendiola

    ordered mine at 2:00pm PST , got the email at 2:22pm , got my shipping confirmation at 3:30pm !! 😉 you jealous ?

    kidding :p barely got the email about an hr ago . i ordered mine at 12:55PST hope it doesn’t take forever to get here

  • Jordan

    I’m already looking forward to the Galaxy S5. I’d like the Nexus 5 if it supported Verizon’s network, but I’m loyal to Verizon’s amazing coverage and unlimited data.

    • bkosh84

      Unlimited data is overrated imo, I switched to AT&T and have shared 6gb of data with my wife and we never reach that limit.. In fact we didn’t even reach 4gb my last billing cycle so there’s that.

      • Jay Ochs

        ok, and that’s you. i personally use about 10-12 gigs a month on average with my verizon unlimited plan.

        it’s not overrated; it’s simply that YOU don’t use as much as many of us do.

        • donkeykong85

          and get ready because we are going to continue to use more and more and more…

          • bkosh84

            Why would I care you aren’t clogging up my network, lol.. Man some of you people hold on to your unlimited data like Gollum with the ring from Lord of the Rings.. lol

          • jim

            Lots of kids on here that have the phone in their face every minute

      • interstellarmind

        I use at least 15-20gb per month. I don’t think unlimited is overrated – not by a long shot.

      • jim

        Kind of thinking that to, you can save maps and keep playlist on your phone, im not some kid that has my phone in my face all day
        gaming or watching videos, got a huge flat screen on the wall for that

    • joejoe5709

      Ditto. The G2 is nice, but the S5 should be better and it shouldn’t be more than a few months away. The Galaxy S family always lands perfectly right around tax time and I’ll have some money burning in my pocket!

    • Rich Flores

      I’m with you on that. I went from the last Nexus to the S4, and after disabling anything I wasn’t using on the S4, it was essentially custom tailored to how I wanted it. I think people over exaggerate how “bloated” or “cluttered” the Samsung UI is. It feels like these are arguments from a couple years back and Samsung has only made the UI more user friendly if anything. In fact, going from my Nexus 7 tablet back to my S4 and vice versa, I felt I enjoyed the S4 much more. Wanted to try out the HTC One as well, but the non-removable battery is a huge deal breaker for me because I heavily utilize my phone throughout long days and cannot be tethered to a desk or have my 10,000Mah Anker hanging out of my pocket throughout the day lol

  • Brian Menius

    For anyone who has received a shipping notification, did you notice a status between “Pending” and “Shipped” on the status page, or did it flip right from “Pending” to “Shipped”?

    • Allan


  • ralphwiggum1

    I ordered early (11:05am PDT) but ordered with a case which showed in stock at the time … but maybe it wasn’t in stock.

  • cmbeid

    Hmm, I placed my order 10 minutes after the link went live. I am jealous…

  • yellowflash94

    $10 tax damn mine cost me $27 🙁 California y u tax so much…

    • Rich Flores

      Because it’s a liberal progressive state and taxing you to death is part of the philosophy.

      • interstellarmind

        Or it’s a state that believes in taking care of people who need help.

        You know, that whole united we stand, divided we fall thing. Help your fellow man. It’s also very Jesus-y. So, logically, conservative states are not down with Jesus’ teachings.

        • Droidzilla

          Don’t get all political. Besides, Conservatives donate far more than Liberals with a much better success rate than government programs.

        • Rich Flores

          Now all we have to do is figure out how to filter out those who abuse your utopian system. Because, really, who doesn’t want to help good people that deserve it? What’s bad, and I don’t want to drag this place down with endless political diatribe, is the essential blatant robbery the politicians (DemocRats and RepubliCons) pull on law abiding, tax paying citizens, to randomly throw it at whatever THEY see fit…. It’s a horribly mismanaged system, and they’re using YOUR money! Would you let corrupt, unqualified people handle your personal finances? Didn’t think so.

        • R Dickson

          Get real not all of those with their hand out are truly in need, take a breath and use what God gave you and think before you opine.
          The taxes here in Ca are disproportionate to the folks who actually have to pay them. Sales tax are just the beginning and Jesus or US conservatives don’t have a thing to do with your utopian “I’m getting mine” society.
          BTW I did get my shipping notice after ordering on Friday. Can’t wait.

    • Adrynalyne

      Cry me a river. It would cost me $36.

      • SookRam

        Guilty. I paid $36.30 here in NYC.

        • Adrynalyne

          I’m in Tucson, but yeah, I feel your pain.

          Luckily our cost of living isn’t nearly as high as NYC.

          Yes, yes it’s horrid here. It snows, too. I miss southern California where I came from. Please don’t come out here and crowd up the pla- I mean, you wouldn’t like it. The mountains suck and all of the women have rickets.

          • PhillipCun

            dont worry, i hate the cold. i hate snow. i love LA. The traffic, the smog, the douches, the beautiful women, fancy cars, beaches, sun all year round. LOVING IT.

          • Droidzilla

            Honestly, you couldn’t pay me enough to go back to Orange County/LA area. It’s all yours.

          • yellowflash94

            ….I realllly like the snow and cold weather..i’ll see you soon you can’t stop me now

      They taxed me $52.00 as Tax. Ontario is a Ripp-off 🙁

      • m82a1

        You mean the classic 13% that you should have expected?

        • Junaid Ansari

          LOOL Yeah I did. The 16GB was $411 with Shipping I was like I might as well get the 32GB 😛

          • Sam Freistedt

            That’s what I did.

      • michael arazan

        I’m amazed Canada got it the day of release. Nice to see companies finally including Canada apart of North America, than treating them like they’re in Europe

      • OriKote

        70.98 € ($US 95.82) Tax in Spain…

        I think you shouldn’t complain that much about how much taxes do you pay but on how the governments use that money.

          the Canadian government gives it to people who use the system. mostly people on welfare who don’t need to be.

    Ordered within the first two minutes…

  • Chris Ghubril

    AH! Can’t wait. I ordered mine at 11:01 PST (ninja style). Hopefully it ships soon!

  • John Wilson

    Mine shipped about 30 minutes ago. Black 32GB model with 2 day shipping. If it ships from Louisville I’ll have it tomorrow.

    • Ray

      what time did you order yours? I ordered my at 2:30 eastern time.

      • John Wilson

        Ordered at 2:04 Eastern.

    • ben

      Louisville? oh wow, I’ll probably have mine quick too

  • Matthew Runo

    Ordered at 11:03 and still Pending for me =

    • brkshr

      Uuumm, 11:03?

      • Ej McCarty

        Umm he’s obviously on PST dick

        • brkshr

          It wasn’t released until 11:00 PST and he changed his post. So go ahead and eat that ****…

        • Pedro

          Well, I’d actually guess that he was on PDT.

      • beerme828

        Not everybody is in your time zone…

        • Matthew Runo

          Yea 11:03 AM PST, I did type 10:03 to begin with but edited that one fast 😉

        • brkshr

          No, but he would have had to of been in a different country then, since the phone was released at 11:00 am pst… and he corrected his post.

      • longshtox17

        He is probably on Pacific time. 2:03 Eastern

        • brkshr

          He originally said 10:03, then changed it to 11:03 after my post. So my post is a little out of context now.

    • OligarchyAmbulance

      Same here. 11:03 and Pending. I still have hope though!

      • Craig Jacobs

        I ordered a white 16 @ 11:11:11, no ship notice yet. Anyone get a ship notice for a white phone?

  • Christian Stalvey

    So my order is still pending, bank account is down $400 so does that mean I’m getting mine?

    • bozzykid

      No it means they authorized a hold on your card until it ships. Then they will charge you.

    • Christian Stalvey

      They’ve already sucked money out of my account. There’s no pending charge. I orders it mine minutes after it was announced on the east coast

      • Kahsay Cooley

        I’m in the same boat. guess we just have to wait til google processes it 🙁 This happened when i ordered my chrome-cast too…

  • Kane Desousa

    People are going so crazy over this device…

    • Philip J. Fry

      Well, it is a nexus device…….

      • Kane Desousa

        Well, it’s not like we haven’t known how it looked, the price, and what’s inside for weeks now. Leaks are so boring… I miss being surprised, obviously with such big companies like Google and Apple it’s not possible. But Google purposely leaked it.

        • Adrynalyne

          You think Apple doesn’t purposely leak?


          • Kane Desousa

            Lol they do, but not to an extreme like Google did this time around.

          • Skittlez

            i think they did so cause there wasn’t going to be an event. i liked it actually

          • Rodeojones000

            You liked it? But you’re the guy who last week was saying the LG rep you spoke to said we were looking at a late-November release. You also said there was no way it would be released today because of the lack of invitations to the media for an event/announcement.

          • Skittlez

            way to troll bro. is your penis bigger now?

          • NorCalGuy

            They just have “drunk” ppl leave it in the bar and then file police reports and then pretend it didnt happen and deny the whole thing. But that’s not extreme.

          • Craig Jacobs

            I think the leaks were because they released the info in an embargoed fashion to a lot of folks and it leaked out. The Verge had the info for awhile but were under NDA for example.

    • Butters619

      I think the main reason people are going crazy is because this is the first Nexus phone that doesn’t have one glaringly obvious flaw. It’s the first real flagship from Google. They finally addressed their awful camera hardware and software. They finally addressed the biggest weakness of AOSP Android.

      And personally I have been screaming from the rooftops (you could go look at my history if you wish) for a top tier phone with a soft touch finish. It’s the best material for a phone and I have missed it dearly since I moved on from my Treo 5 years ago.

      • Ej McCarty

        I don’t think we are gonna be impressed by battery life and also people will say that the camera is not that great. Is it perfect? No, but it’s a really nice phone.

        • Butters619

          It might not be the best camera out there, but it’s not going to be the garbage cameras of Nexi past. Look at the Nexus 5 page. 3/4 of it talks about the camera.

          • Adrynalyne

            They pimped the Gnex camera pretty hard too though, LOL.

          • Butters619

            That’s true lol.

          • andrew401

            LMAO best battery life and camera I’ve ever had

        • J Dub

          Impressed, no. Satisfied, more than. Look at the G2 battery benchmarks. Nexus 5 should get 75% of those. That will put it right around Moto X and HTC One. Will be about 30% better than the Nexus 4 too. Those phones are on 4.3 too so who knows if 4.4 will improve on the software side.

          • Skittlez

            it’s actually better than the HTC One. HTC One has a 2300mah battery with the Snapdragon 600. the 800 has significantly lower voltage which means awesome use for the battery size. HTC One gets people through an entire day. This will be better

      • sc4fpse

        I would say that no Verizon support is one glaringly obvious flaw, even if it wasn’t Google’s fault. Sorry – not giving up my unlimited data for that, nor am I going to throw away my coverage with Verizon just for a Nexus. Also, 5 inches is way too big for a phone, and is another “glaringly obvious flaw” IMHO.

        • Adrynalyne

          One man’s flaw is another man’s jewel.

          Which do you choose? Running around in an old Ford with free gas, or go buy a cherry red Ferrari (that costs less than the Ford), but you have to pay for gas?

        • donkeykong85

          verizon’s coverage is overrated.

          • Liderc

            You must be in a terrible area. Verizon’s LTE coverage makes every other company’s look like a total joke. I couldn’t care less about unlimited data, but having my service work everywhere I go is what you’d call important. And Verizon is, not exaggerating, 10x better than any of its competitors in my area.

        • andrew401

          shut up hoe

        • Tim Eddy

          Sucks that you have girl hands.

  • snowblind64

    Ordered my black 32GB N5 at 11:30, no shipping confirmation yet.

    • brkshr

      Ordered mine at 11:03, with no shipping confirmation yet

      • Wes Thomson

        11:04 here, said “ships by Nov 5th”, shipped confirmation at 2:55.
        32gb black

        • brkshr

          Well screw you!

          j/k, hopefully I’ll get my confirmation soon. Did you get the 2 day shipping or the ground shipping?

          • Wes Thomson

            Aw haha, I’m sure yours is next.

            2day, was hoping to play with it this weekend but I doubt it. The tracking number doesn’t show anything so its just a preprinted label so far.

          • brkshr

            Cool. Thanks. I ordered with the 2 day as well. I’m just glad I got one out the gate this year.

          • snowblind64

            Same here. I hesitated to order the N4 and wound up having to wait until the end of January to get it.

          • snowblind64

            You may just have it on Saturday after all.

            I ordered my Nexus 4 on a Thursday morning and it arrived on Saturday.

        • yellowflash94

          ordered mine ar 11:17 still nothing ooo i hope it ships soon

        • Butters619

          I also ordered at 11:04 and 32GB black. Please Google. Please Google. Please Google.

  • Adam Engelbrecht

    “Leaves warehouse in 3 – 4 weeks”

    I don’t know if I’d go so far to say they did it right.

    • Wazzifer

      You were late to the party. They did it right, you were slow.

      • Stephen Ta

        Yep… the 3-4 weeks didn’t pop up till hours after

    • If you made your order more than 5 minutes after it showed up, then you did your ordering wrong 😉 🙂

    • I’d say they did well because the site didn’t crash. Lack of inventory is another issue, but it seems to have been better than in years past.

      • Adam Engelbrecht

        For those of you saying I’m late, i wasn’t planning on ordering today. No worries for me.

        Kellen – For the most part I agree. You’d think they would have figured out supply issues by now though. I’m sure it’s part of the plan too though. Make ’em wait a little bit longer, they want it more.

        • Butters619

          Supply is one of those things that’s hard. Taking the time and money to stock up months of phones (without selling any) just isn’t too practical.

          • Pedro

            For most companies, I’d agree.
            But what does Google have, besides time and money?

            That said, I still agree with you. Inventory management is hard.

          • Butters619

            Inventory Management is one of those things every company wishes they could perfect, but not many have it right. First you don’t want too much unsold inventory sitting around for monetary reasons. You want enough to meet initial demand and then you want a supply chain that can catch up and keep up without stockpiling (HTC messed that up big time).

            But you also want to use inventory to partially control supply and demand. It’s like when a girl likes a guy. They can’t be too easy or the demand won’t be there. Guys want something that not everybody can get. But you can’t be too hard to get because the guy will move on to the next cute girl. Now apply that to the general population and technology. And throw in a TON more money.

  • Mike

    Anyone else giggle at the title bar?

    • Wazzifer

      I did. *hugs Note 3*

  • Ej McCarty

    Cancelled my order. Decided it wasn’t worth the hassle of selling my note 3, gear, and unlimited contract

    • why couldn’t you just keep the contract…? and pop the simcard into the N5? just curious

      • Philip J. Fry

        The n5 doesn’t work on verizon.

        • well duh, but the dude’s comment doesn’t say ANYTHING about him being on Verizon mang

    • Rich Flores

      This is an honest question, because I’ve had Nexus devices with AOSP as well as Motorola and most recently the S4, but what is it about the N5 that would entice you to bail out on the Note 3? Is it something about you not liking the Note 3, REALLY liking the N5 (assuming you have or haven’t used it?), or just have to have it because it’s “cool”..?

      • Ej McCarty

        I mean nexii are what I think most people on this site would call the Holy grail of phones. I love my n3 but the thought of a brand new nexus is just the best. I just want some debloated touch wiz roms to come out for the note 3

      • andrew401

        lets see….. AOSP and ‘fastboot oem unlock’… there you go

        • Rich Flores

          To you, that may mean everything. To me, that means nothing lol

    • J Dub

      Other than the fact that selling the contract alone will cover the Nexus 5 and then bring along lower monthly service costs?

      • capecodcarl

        Maybe he didn’t want to lose his phone number? I’ve had the same one for 12 years and I sure as hell wouldn’t want to switch to a new one, contact everyone to change my number, and PRAY that the last guy that had it wasn’t a telemarketing magnet or being hunted by creditors.

        • dunning-kruger

          You can port it to google voice and keep it, be sure to look for some instruction on how to do it without breaking your contract. I did it a while back. It’ll be pretty much perfect once they get MMS.

        • J Dub

          You port it out to Google Voice. I just did the process. Since Google Voice takes 24 hours to port your golden. Give Google Voice at least 4 hours to make sure you don’t get any errors. Then after that it’s safe to request a new number from VZW. 24 hours later Google Voice will have the number you’ve held onto for so long. And yes…I got someones number a few towns away that must have had children. Constantly get automated calls from the school about my “child” on my VZW phone I don’t use.

      • Thom

        I thought Verizon put a end to transferring unlimited contracts…

        • J Dub

          This I do not know about. I don’t know why not. Now I guess I need to look at their AOL TOS.

    • Pedro

      Wouldn’t you have worked out that decision in the past couple weeks?
      But, since the interwebs opened up on Halloween, you saw how everyone wanted one. So you bought one, too.

      And, then in the hour after getting a conformation, you decided that real life effort was just too much for you.


      • Ej McCarty

        I impulse bought it then decided it wasn’t worth it there spic and span

    • Craig Jacobs

      Thanks for that info. What did you have for breakfast if I may ask?

  • brkshr

    Yippy skippy!
