Instagram makes this irrelevant

The quality of cellphone cameras has sadly become irrelevant because people tend to ruin their photos with Instagram's photo filter before sharing them. Sadly, a phone's ability to take beautiful color-accurate photos is irrelevant because the user will turn everyone's skin yellow, and add grain and a goofy retro frame on the photo in a desperate attempt to be creative by making their photos look exactly like every other Instagram photo.

Camera KK

Mobilynx did a great job with this clone of the KitKat stock camera. I prefer it over the stock LG camera. Sure it's a paid app, but it's worth the 1.99.

Here is a great one!

You can dial down the exposure so it doesn't blow out the shot, Which happens on the G. Lots of great features though too. Self timer etc etc.

The stock shots looked better

Thanks for the review, just after looking at the side by sides you may have saved people a lot of time fiddling with some of the 3rd party apps. To the naked eye, you really can't see a difference in some of those shots. In others, the two camera apps shots look worse. Unless you are someone who pays attention to detail (most of us aren't) majority of people won't tell the difference.

Ponle Sabor!

New Flavor Available. Looks good, tho'. If I didn't had a phone already, probably I'd go for the Nexus 5 in Red Hot.

Ting rocks!

One issue -- Sprint does not use SIM cards, and neither does Ting. Ting only works with Sprint phones or (some) other Sprint MVNOs. Read up before you buy a phone to use on Ting!

I love Ting! If you're on Sprint and out of contract, you should look hard at it. They use tiered pricing so you only pay for what you use, and you can activate most Sprint phones on their network. Their fees are limited to only what the government makes them charge, plus $6 per line. My bill for last month was only $12! Biggest downside is the large upfront cost if you want a new phone, but you can buy used ones off Glyde or eBay.

If you're interested, here's a link that will get you $25 off your first bill:

Tired of biased reviews from Eric

I know the reviewer is an apple fanboy and all, but couldn't he at least have included a review of the phones software and processors? I mean he spent so much time telling us how cheap and ugly it is I'd like to at least know if its fast and nice to use. Because that is after all...what matters. I couldn't care less if my phone is anodized aluminum and perfectly weighted like fanboys like to say about apple products. If the thing doesn't work or do anything worth doing then it doesn't matter how premium it feels. Anyways just wanted to get that out there because I'm tired of reading reviews on this site that are so blatantly biased and skewered.

P.S the Galaxy s4 is plastic too.

Design is actually pretty nice

Mine just arrived, I'd say the design of this phone is leagues better than anything Samsung made (especially the craptastic Note 3 with its nasty fake leatherette complete with crappy fake stitching) - the front end is a lot cleaner than the Moto X, the plastics feel nice (remember the HTC One X Similar feel?) , and there's none of the ergonomic screw-ups of the HTC One (power button) , it's very very solid.

Why no MicroSD?!

Surprised This keeps happening with Nexus phones and other flagships, and I DO NOT UNDERSTAND why a premium device would leave off expandable storage. Who wouldn't want storage for MORE photos/videos/music and be able to swap that over to a different device down the line easily?

The point everyone seems to be missing

Is that all OS's have fragmentation and that Android isn't really any worse than the rest of them. iOS has a similar level of fragmentation. Apple people just like to hide it in the charts. Windows is majorly fragmented with a significant number of users on Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and various versions of Windows Server, not to mention the various patches, security updates, and Service Packs that exist for all of those. But you never hear anyone talking about it.

And then there's Linux(yes I realize Android is Linux), possibly the most fragmented OS - ever. And no one is complaining about it . In fact, fragmentation is the very thing that has made Linux both awesome and successful.

Heck the only significant OS I know of wit...

disappointed

in nothing about this phone, if i didnt pick up the iphone 5s and had planned on sticking with android this would be the only phone android to consider, touchwiz and htcsence are ok but they bog down the processor so much, the N5 is finally a android that can compete with Iphone in terms of fragmention and speed of OS, i am a big believer in manufacturer overlay on the OS is what causes %90 of the fragmention in andriod, my experiance with the pure google phones is that they dont seem to have that problem, look at the moto x even with a slower processor its benchmarks beat the S4, Note 3, and HTC one, because its pure google

Also, why I don't think this phone is premium.

I just looked at the specs on the LG G2 for Sprint and it is equal to or superior to the Nexus 5 across the board, with the one exception that the Nexus 5 supports LTE-Advanced and the G2 does not. If LG has a premium flagship device right now, it's the G2, not the Nexus 5. But that's not to say the Nexus 5 isn't a capable and high-end device itself.

Speaker DOES NOT work

Phone arrived with a defective speaker. It plays no sound (no ring, no speaker phone, no music, etc.). Many people seem to be experiencing the same issue. Google is estimating that it could take 5 weeks to receive a replacement. I don't recommend buying LG phones (actually bought this to replace an LG phone) nor buying phones from Google Play.

verizon

I am a Verizon customer but I must say that I'm glad its not going to work on Verizon (the LTE anyway) I am still using my galaxy nexus and I'm only on 4.2.2 because of Verizon's doing. This phone looks great and Verizon would only **** up the main reason to get a nexus and I'm glad they can't screw with that. On another note so happy to see the touch less controls on this phone don't know if that's because of 4.4 or nexus 5 but its a good sign that similar android phones or all android phone in the future will have this.
