      Grow up dude. It’s just a phone, You guys look worse than the iPhone fan boys.

        I know it’s just a phone, but……..

        BWAH………..

        I want one

      • Alan Shearer

        I waited over 48 hours in line for the iphone 3-4-5, I will do the same for this. Mst but latest electronic, the beaver overlords demand such!

      • HeatFan441

        Actually, Nexus users don’t camp in front of a store a week in advance and troll the living hell out society if they don’t say the iPhone is the best phone ever. Big difference.

        • setspeed

          No, they just endure hours of trying to submit an order to a vastly overloaded server, and then when they finally manage to buy one, they wait weeks for delivery :-/

          • HeatFan441

            Nexus users aren’t brash though. They are more humble than iPhone users for sure.

        It must suck to wrong around like this all day. Lighten up!

      • Cesar Ortiz

        Pot calling the kettle black , huh? and btw it is a smartphone. Get it right.

        • Covert Hops Society

          This is your retort? I repeat. Grow up…….Better yet, go do your home work. You don’t want to repeat 5th grade again do you?

          • Cesar Ortiz

            Seems to me you don’t know the difference between a smartphone and a phone. Telling people to grow up does not make you any different. It makes you look more childish.

          • Covert Hops Society

            Owwwww……My butt hurts. Please stop.

          • Cesar Ortiz

            Whatever it is you do with your butt is not my business.

    With gorilla glass 3 do you think one of those spigen tempered glass protectors is completely unnecessary?

    • Nick Henderson

      yes, screen protectors are unnecessary unless you are at the beach playing in the sand with a ton of diamonds.

  • rampage1979

    I am getting tempted to sell my G2, love this phone and its awesome battery and camera but the nexus 5 has me intrigued. I don’t care if the battery is 2300 or 2600mah as long as it lasts a full day at least, my G2 goes for 2days without charging.

    • HeatFan441

      How do you get 2 full days? Minimal usage?

  • HeatFan441

    I think the Nexus 5 is a sweet looking phone and probably one of the best looking Android devices of 2013. Sorry, but the HTC One takes the prize for best looking smartphone of 2013.

  • Jeff Nichols

    at least this seems to be a slightly more official confirmation of OIS. if there is in fact a larger battery with the 32 GB version I’m sold. honestly I may be sold anyway…

  • krudl3rx

    So taller than the S4. Bummer.

    • steveb944

      I was hoping you were wrong, but you’re right. It’s minimal tho.
      S4: 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm

    • Friday

      I don’t understand. What’s the problem? lol

  • steveb944

    Ceramic buttons? Scratch resistant/proof? Yes!

    Omg I can’t stop salivating. RELEASE ALREADY!

  • renGek

    My guess is that the release date is similar to the release date of galaxy nexus which was around Nov 2 years ago for the gsm version and dec for Verizon.

  • Bizzle9

    Taller and thicker than the S4, with a smaller battery and larger chin.

    Disappointing that the early FCC dimensions were wrong.

    • Jeff Nichols

      Yeah, that’s a big a$$ phone. I like the Moto X size honestly and was hoping this phone would be between the gs3/4 and the moto x. Oh well. If it doesn’t end up with the bigger battery for the 32 GB version I don’t know if it’ll be all that compelling for me personally.

    • John

      You’re being a douche over 1.24mm in height and 0.69mm in thickness? Wow.

      You forgot to mention in the midst of your douche calculations that the Nexus 5 is 0.63mm more narrow than the GS4. Width seems like the most important comfort factor for modern smartphones to me.

      Also, battery capacity is NOT confirmed. I’m still holding out for a bigger battery in the 32GB model like was rumored, but I guess I’ll have to wait and see…

  • hoz590

    Never could understand why everyone freaks out about the latest phone that comes out every three months. They pretty much all do the same things with maybe a little twist on the software. How many phones do they need? seems like a waste of $600 every few months for a redundant machine.

    • Friday

      Did it ever occur to you that EVERY person looking forward to a new phone release doe NOT buy a phone every three months?

  • Mike Wheat

    any idea if rumors have this working with verrizon’s network?

  • aleaf11

    Barring some miraculous feature (other then LTE) this will sink faster than the Titanic. Coincidence? I think not, it’s just as big. As far as I can tell from the numerous rumors here and elsewhere there in nothing groundbreaking about this phone. KitKat will refine the UI and user experience a bit. But, what else is there that will distinguish a Nexus 5 from an Samsung S3, HTC One or Drod Maxx other then “The Pure Google Experience”?

    • effApple

      The “Pure Google Experience”, timely updates and a $350 price point are more than enough to garner all the hype and interest. Size wise, it will be similar to the S3 and S4, and will be free of all that TouchWiz bloat. Win-Win

      • aleaf11

        When was the last time Google did a major overhaul of the Android OS? The last updates at best have been internal tweaks. Materially, there hasn’t been any difference in the OS for the better part of 1 1/2 years (mostly for the better).
        All I’m saying is, if I’m going to shell out $350 for this thing it should look sexy (The Moto X looks sexier), be a major upgrade from Android 4.3 (I haven’t heard anything about 4.4 that says “I gotta have it”) and provide features service(s) that will differentiate it substantially from the Nexus 4 (Ceramic volume button doesn’t count). Otherwise, Google will pull an Apple out of it’s @$$.

        • Brandon Collen

          I totally agree with effApple, the “Pure Google Experience” is becoming way more important to consumers now a days as everyone is realizing all of the bloatware and gimicky features on other devices suck. Apples phones are reliable because the company produces the software and hardware exclusively and Android users want the same experience. Also many consumers are switching to cellular providers such as straight talk and brightspot because Verizon and ATT are becoming too pricey and for 350 for an unlocked flagship Android phone is a steal, Im selling my S3, getting the nexus 5 and switching from verizon to straight talk

  • Unorthodox

    Still not a word if LTE is there.

  • Abstract

    Good looking phone with good specs. I hope the battery life is up to par for those buying this. Visually it reminds me of my second gen Nexus 7. I wish my tablet had a white option lol
