Hands-On: Google Nexus 5
Why no MicroSD?!
And the Nexus hasn't been a developer phone since the Nexus S.
It certainly beats the, notably premium, GS IV in a couple ares like processor speed and an available LTE-A radio. However, it falls behind in some other categories like battery size, DLNA, IR sensor, and memory card slot. Also, one review I read already of the Nexus 5's camera presented it as lackluster. But that's one element most premium phones get right. It's certainly a high end device, but I don't know that I feel it's premium. It certainly lacks enough features that I wouldn't consider it for my own device.

Battery size is the same as the the HTC One, and not much smaller then the S4 plus the snapdragon 800 processor use less battery for most aplication
DLNA, IR sensor, while great gadgets, %80-%90 of of smartphone owners who have these features dont use them
SD cards are slower and less reliable then built in memory, the real downside about not having a memory card is with andriod once you...
Those devices launched when? And the Nexus 5 launched when? I would expect a premium device that launched several months behind other premium devices to have a superior battery.

I'm pretty sure that's case when compared to previous Snapdragon lines. But the 600 (in the GS4) and the 800 (in the Nexus 5) were announced by Qualcomm at the same time.The 800 is the higher performance processor, and the announcement I read compared it to the last iteration of processors, but not directly to the 600. I would imagine that the extra horsepower comes with a higher cost in power consumption. ...
i wont consider DNLA or IRBlaster a requirement for a premium device tell more people start demanding them(DNLA was a requirement for premium devices back when the galaxy line first came out but not much of a demand anymore) the sad thing is this might not happen intell Apple puts these features in a iphone, thats not the way it should be. The only hardware feature android has been able to kick off and become a standard that apple doesnt have is NFC not even a huge demand for it not many people use it even once...
But here are some other industry standards that started on Android- multitasking, drop down notifications, wireless syncing, and over the air updates. I guess we don't need Apple to keep technology mo...
Its not that there are more people that want these features then I think, I said only about %10 of smartphone users want these features so out of about 150million smartphones in the US thats still 15million people in the US still wanting those features
As a rule of thumb - when you buy anything that has any kind of Flash memory, or any memory cards, Format them Three (3) times before you use them. I have purchased SD cards that have memory access errors pop up on the 3rd format. That's how you know they are no good.
