Contest: Win a Red Nexus 5 16GB Just for Being Awesome

Yesterday, we unboxed the red Nexus 5 in typical fun fashion. It was a good time and all, but during the clip, we mentioned that we had a second unit floating around the DL offices that would more than likely end up in the hands of one of you. Because we stick to our word, it’s time now to give this bright red Google flagship away.

The red Nexus 5 was introduced earlier this week as a third colorway for Google’s latest smartphone. Outside of the bright red exterior, it’s no different than the black or white variants that have been around since late 2013, and even comes in both 16GB and 32GB models at $349 and $399, respectively. From the comments of our unboxing, we can tell that people either love or hate the color – there isn’t much room for a mixed opinion on this one. Personally, I’m a fan, but I’m a fanboy of all things bright, shiny, and Google.

Whoever wins this, let’s hope you like beacons of bright red light. You ready? 


Prize:  1 (one) red Nexus 5 16GB.

    I’ve owned the Galaxy Nexus on VZW in the past, but have a strong need for a new GSM phone now with my newest carrier. PLUS it’s red, and that feeds an obsession of mine, haha. A Nexus with the specs this has, in red, that’s 4G (unlike a certain older sibling of his)… It’s a definite need, in my book.

    If its true that the Nexus 5 will die off. Well this Nexus 5 in red proves it can be with the rest of the OEM’s. What I mean is that the Google experience can appeal to a broader audience. With the three flavors of selection it has now. It could have been put out as exclusives to three carriers. We would hate the subsidies but hey, I’m just saying… =)

    I am currently rocking an a og droid. At work and at college people constantly make fun of me, But with a shiny new red Nexus 5 I would be the one laughing at them! 🙂

  • Dan Handsome Mansome

    I can’t lie and say much for I never held the device in my hands yet but like most I had plenty off wet dreams about the phone. I love the aesthetics and dreamed a dream of no bloatware which I heard that the nexus 5 had but I have to look up her skirt to see if it’s true.

  • Sarpedon1069

    I love that it has awesome specs at an even better price than everything else!

  • Adrian Hertanto

    I love the red Nexus 5 for its simplicity, pure android, its smoothness, and no bloatware. And I also love the design.

  • JP Loinsigh

    It’s been disappointing. I’m not a fan of my N5. The GPS issues are killing the vibe. That and only one speaker works.

  • Trevor

    Pure, open source Android. Much easier (as far as I know) for devs to pump out well-functioning ROMs for this bad boy.

  • Miguel Hernandez

    I love the beastly specs!

  • brndnzlda

    I want that gorgeous screen!

  • zaraki921

    I love the color and the feel of it. Plus it has really great specs. And also its made by Google itself.

  • Andrew

    It’s a Nexus

  • Evan Hoke

    The fact that a top tier phone can cost next to nothing compared to phones costing twice as much and offering not much more.

  • BbyDol

    If it get’s lost it shouldn’t be too hard to find!

  • Eric Matthew Woodrum

    Pure android in a sexy chassy!

  • Hiran

    I would really like it and if I win I will get it on Verizon Wireless. Best 4G LTE Network with coverage, reception, speed, and reliability. 100% Customer Service. I do not want to go back to Sprint or T-Mobile, because I get bad reception and my Dad had Sprint, but his colleague has T-Mobile and his friend has AT&T and Sprint and T-Mobile is too cheap. Cheap Network=Bad/Terrible Reception. Sprint and T-Mobile do not work at a lot places especially college and workplace. AT&T is ok, but if you like to hassle with billing problems.

  • Khairy Atieh

    Stock android is so snappy

    It’s so redlicious. And it would be an amazing opportunity for me to switch to another carrier because Verizon is sucking all the “red” out of me! :c

  • Chileball

    Leaving aside the simplicity and beauty of this smartphone, I’m a fan of Android, even I am a blogger on a Spanish site, as I do for free (they don’t have lots of visitors to remunerate), I can’t not afford one, would be great to have one to communicate better and be a better blogger in the future.

  • Henry Kaufman

    How could you not love the red Nexus 5, it has an amazing display, runs stock Android, has some of the highest end software out in the tech universe right now, has an epic design, and only costs $350 unlocked!!!!!

  • Kal5el

    It’s the removal of bloatware. There is so little lag. It’s just clean.

  • TJG

    the thing about the nexus is that it has always been a very understated low key device that continues to reflect Android as Google has envisioned it, what’s more attractive is the nexus 5 that has come a long way from hardware and software, BUT what’s EVEN better is that it comes in RED!

  • Alex Im

    Well, I actually really like the GS3, especially with 4.3. But! The Lock/unlock button is now malfunctioning, which is very frustrating. So, my favorite feature of the Nexus 5, at least this Nexus 5, is the brand new Lock button.

  • TechWings

    Pretty. Me want. Red.

    Or, to quote an M. Night Shyamalan movie, “the bad color.”

Now that I no longer work there, I have this iPhone and no real way to go back to the nexus without breaking my contract. What better way to get back into android, than with the incredible style of a red nexus 5. Its beautiful.

    Pure stock android!!!! stock android straight from google has come a long way. Its evolved into a stable, fast, and intuitive OS. i knew about the nexus 5 when it came out but i didnt know how great it really was, and have you seen the price? its amazing! i own a Galaxy s4. im tired of the touchwiz UI because it lags so much and has to use so much memory! in fact the minimum system requirement on my galaxy s4 (32gb) is 7.83gb……. insane! if you put a samsung device next to a nexus device, you would not be able to tell if the samsung device is running android underneath touchwiz. if had the nexus 5, i would get updates straight from google and dont have to worry about the phone slowing down. its a win! and the new red version is an epic win!

  • Eduardo Ortiz

    P.S. Shout out to Tim and Kellen for being into sneakers!

  • Bruno Rocha

    time to change my N4 🙂

  • James Tufarelli

    The red takes the nexus more towards the consumer market. Before, the white and black colors are easily lost in the sea of mobile phones. Now with the red, you don’t need to buy a case to stand out.

  • m1ghtysauc3

    Because it’s a Nexus, of course.

  • Autumn Raine

    Everything, I simply love everything about the Nexus 5.

  • UncagedChipmunk

    As much as I love Motorola’s Moto X. Something about a Red Nexus, or Nexi in general, it’s very alluring

  • Joseph Rocheleau

    I don’t mind the red, but it doesn’t really matter anyways. Unless you go with a clear case, nobody sees the back of your phone. I really liked the Cruzerlite Wallet case that was featured on here, so I think I’ll get that if I win this and drop VZW on my GNex to head over to TMo. Fingers crossed.

    What I love about the Nexus 5 is that it is a great phone that shows off all of what GOOGLE meant to have in a phone, and not the “bells and whistles” of other OEMs which actually detract from the phone itself. Thanks DL!

  • Daniel Jones


  • DS

    I love how quickly you can get Google updates. I’m sitting on GS3 and the only way to get any decent updates is to root and flash. Would be nice to have a device that was designed for pure Google.

  • rreich49

    I love the pure Google experience.


  • CaptainHowdy13

  • Wes Thomson

    No bloat, beatiful in it’s simplicity.

  • Tanson

    The black and the white seem bunk compared to the red!

  • Cris Gizzi

    What I like about the Nexus 5 (or any Nexus device, for that matter) is the freedom it allows its users. Freedom to use the device how ever you see fit. If you want to customize your experience with it down to its roots, you can. If you’re perfectly happy with the experience the way it was designed, you’re more than welcome to keep it just the way it is. Freedom of choice is king.

    What I love about Nexus 5?
    I love the simple yet elegant design. The Purest Android OS experience. The neat and clean UI. The small but empowering additions. The exceptional combination of best features + apt price makes it THE BEST ever Nexus experience.
    I hope the NEXUS range always continues to do what it’s best at: “TO IMPRESS.”
    I LOVE THE NEXUS 5 & what better color there would be than a RED NEXUS 5. 🙂

  • makivelli

    That it isn’t the Droid Bionic.

    Clean, bloat-free, stock Android. It may not be the top of the line when it comes to specs but it is Google’s vision of what Android should be.

    It’s new! And who doesn’t like new things, ie phones? Also, my favorite color is red so…yeah. 🙂

  • chris125

    Top of the line specs, pure, untouched android, and a price that can’t be beat for a device of it’s caliber. Not being handcuffed by a carrier makes it even more enticing. No long waits for the latest updates. Plus it is red, and what better way to make a statement and let everyone know what kind of device you have than fire truck red nexus?

    I really love the clean, simple design; just a flat slab with subtle tapering on the back for ergonomics. No crazy shape, glittery texture or fake leather stitching, excessive logos, physical nav buttons, etc.
