I was planning on getting the Nexus 5 some time back, but then rumors of the Nexus 6 started popping up. With it now looking like the Nexus 6 won't see a release, would the Nexus 5 be worth picking up this year with other phones like the Moto X+1 on the horizon?
I've had three Nexus phones. The Nexus One, Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 4. I am a fan of vanilla Android and was a little apprehensive about anything non-Nexus. However, users of the original Moto X raved about it and said it was very close to stock Android. I made the jump and got the Moto X last Friday. My impressions after using it for five days...
We’ve already seen the Android 4.2.1 update being pushed out to the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10— but now the venerable Galaxy Nexus smartphone is starting to get some love too. Thanks some keen eyes, we now know the minor Android 4.2.1 update is now available for the takju variant of the Galaxy Nexus.
For the first time in a long time, Google announced a new version of Android, but didn’t release it for Nexus devices right away. Those of you with a Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (old and new), and a Nexus 10 will have to wait a few weeks until Google pushes it out.
If you find yourself needing a Kit Kat fix right away, then look no further than Paranoid Android.
Aside from the occasional legal quirks and roadblocks, owning a Nexus device is great because you’ll always have access to factory images of your device in case you ever need to completely undo any customization or just want to start from scratch.
Anyone here considering the Nexus 6? I have a Note3 and a Note4 on preorder, however, I like the larger screen on the Nexus 6, the idea of pure Android, and the loud speakers in the Nexus 6. The other specs seem similar, screen quality, processor, etc.
