Google Nexus 5 Thread

Yes, very true.
Some just stick to stock ROM and find happiness there.
Nice thread BTW.
Any suggestions for a slick but protective case, FK links are more than appreciated.
Price is not an issue.

you can look for spigen slim armor or neo hybrid:
Slim Armor: Spigen Back Cover for Google LG Nexus 5 - Spigen: Flipkart.com
Neo Hybrid: Spigen Back Cover for Google LG Nexus 5 - Spigen: Flipkart.com

They are not that slick, but offer very good protection levels, i have an A grade copy of Neo Hybrid on my Nexus 5 (from aliexpress), and my phone has fallen 3 times now in past month and survived all of them with it on.. :)

Rearth Ringke Fusion is also great. My phone has taken many drops with this on, one time even the back cover came out a little bit, but no serious damage all thanks to this case. I got it from flipkart for just 550 but it sells for around 1k.

anyone here? could only find the Nexus 4 people in this forum.

I'm a proud owner of Nexus 5 D820 (US version). Best phone ever, except for batter life ofc.

Okay, so you must be the person who has already got your hands over Android Lollipop, How was the experience at all ??? Is it going good or its just the same !

Not too impressed really.

Suddenly everything is bright. Earlier it used to be dark. A dark skin option was needed, honestly.

The old Gallery is a better app than Photos.

The new Notification system is marvelous though. But but but, swiping upwards BEFORE you can enter your unlock pattern is irritating. :| I can understand you having to swipe first if you have notifcations on lock screen turned on, but if notifications are off, the pattern panel should appear directly by default. Really irritating this.

Google had purchased QuickOffice a couple of years back. The new apps - Docs, Slides and Sheets are good. But PDF reader is slower than before.

Material design looks cartoony to me, but I'd say the usability in all the core apps has increased with the new interface.

imo, Lollipop is more about updates to the core apps. Otherwise it is bland for me. I preferred the look and feel of Kitkat.

Well, that doesn't looks that much great at all ! Anyway I would say your feedback about Lollipop was bit different from others some people said that they like it the more than ever and anyway I can understand everyone shares different option and so do you ! I would like to thank you for responding back !

My friend owns nexus 5, lollipop build it so good and droll worthy. There is a issue with Google's new encryption algorithm, which might make you feel it's running/accessing a little slow.

Yes, I was actually reading a post about this over AndroidCentral "http://www.androidcentral.com/smartphone-encryption-could-lead-death-child-government-fights-back" that a child could lead to death because of the encryption thing !

I totally agree with ico's views on Lollipop. It's being bashed for its bright colors. Its a bigger problem on Moto X since lighter colors means phone can't advantage of Amoled screens where no pixels are necessary to show black colors. Thereby impacting battery life and color contrast. Speaking of which, it would also be a problem for Nexus 6 since it's also Amoled.

My Nexus 7 have Lollipop but I would have to think about upgrading to stock lollipop on my Moto X. I will wait for custom roms to emerge which addresses this issue of lighter shades.
