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.

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 get past about %75 full built in memory they tend to slow down, iPhone could be the same just never filled my iphone 16gb iphone past %50 because i dont store music or movies on my phone anymore

Lackluster camera, was the camera features lackluster or the image quality? if its just missing features and all you can do is turn flash on/off, and the auto setting take good pictures most people want care, but if image quality is lackluster then they have a problem

i respect that those are features you want, which means you will mostlikely not get the N5, but that doesnt mean that this isnt a premium device
