    I am in need of a new phone because I need help since I have moved out on my own for the first time. I have basically had to give up so many comforts you have with parents. I had to sell games, accessories, gadgets, and Fancy cell phone because I didn’t realize that moving out had such HUGE startup costs. Anyone else reading this, I recommend you save up at least 4k before you move out. So i’m just using my handy dandy flip phone for now. I need a smartphone because as a IT technician it helps very much in most day-to-day procedures. I miss my Android.

  • Corey Smith

    I’m still rocking the Droid Razr Maxx and am looking for a reason to switch.

  • Badulis, Keith

    I need a new phone due to the following reasons:
    a. I want to be updated on all aspects technology nowadays in a smartphone could offer. Since I do not have enough budget to buy such mobile devices, I only rely on the internet, searching for stuff (e.g. high-end mobile devices running the latest version of the Android operating system) I want, which would definitely not be in my hands. Note: I only have a locally branded smartphone.
    b. Since I am a student (studying in a public Science High School), this mobile device would help me a lot – make my life easier, faster with just a swipe, a touch and even a word!
    c. I love technology!! I keep on researching about latest iterations technology could offer, and I have even reached Android Development (I guess theming which is my favorite part, and editing pretty basic codes and not smali or baksmali files). I have such outdated devices (uhm, a single device only), therefore I couldn’t extend my capabilities of being a helpful individual in the Android department.
    d. I definitely love this device!! From the specifications of the hardware down to the software and operating system, this device definitely rocks!! I have done ‘never to be a minute’ amount of researches regarding the phone’s performance, durability, and looks, and found out that it fits my needs.

  • merccoupe

    Kill my wife’s iPhone, please

  • LewisSD

    dropped my S3 2 days ago and it shattered. Time to leave Verizon and get a T mobile prepaid plan!

  • Sam

    1. 2 Year old Galaxy Nexus Screen is cracked and it
    will cost me $99 deductible to get a new one (after 2 years of $10/month fees,
    which were a complete waste)

    2. Trying desperately to leave Verizon’s cash suck
    of a plan for another provider that will take the Nexus 5, but do not want to have
    to sign a contract in order to get the phone discounted.

    3. Don’t have $350 to buy it outright.

    4. I want it bad.

  • chnsawalex

  • Jacob Lewis

    I don’t need a new phone, but I would love to have a new one. I’m using a Galaxy Nexus and it’s starting to feel extremely old and the battery just doesn’t cut it anymore. Not only that, but I’m stuck on Verizon Wireless until I can get another phone that can be used on another carrier. // Dreaming of a Nexus 5.

  • David

    I’m going from Verizon to T-Mobile because they’re better where I am. I pretty much have to stand right by the window to not have my calls drop. I could take my Incredible 2 with me, but 2G data is far from appealing. =

  • Chong Jen Tan

    Because it’s Christmas and I’ve been good all year. And still using a Galaxy Nexus….

  • beng8686

  • Andrew

    I want this phone. I want this phone more than the cookie monster wants cookies. Ommm…ommmm

  • justinisloco

    Because I have a fever. And the only prescription… Is more Nexus!

    So I can make the switch to AT&T Go finally and sell my current iPhone to pay off the ETF. That and I miss android so very dearly. AND because tis the season and you want to help the less fortunate πŸ˜‰
