Re: Not a premium device

After taking a closer look, it does appear that Google is trying to break away from the developer phone moniker. However, I don't know if I'd quite call this a premium phone.
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.
