it's a premium phone for sure. Great design, and superb performance. The same reason why i choose the nexus line because i'll get updates first, and also i could tweak the ROM as what i wanted. This phone really helps me doing my mini thesis research.
Having this device for 2 years. I will commend it for keeping up with me for most of my activities. While it was not a perfect device by any means (the battery being one giant issue) it was able to carry on for most of the time I have used it. From Stock, to Custom Rom, To stock+modified it kept going strong until very recently, but it is time for this soldier of a device of mine to retire. It served me well these 2 years, and I cannot say anything bad about that!
The best phone I've ever owned bar none. It was true smartphone perfection and even more importantly, I could hold it against any iPhone and it would win! Google truly outdid themselves with this one. Battery life sucked tho.
(Dad's phone) My dad just wanted to get a cheap flagship so this is what he bought. Heat issue + already mediocre battery capacity = horrible battery life. Buttons are hard to press. Again, non-removable battery and microSD slot in a Nexus phone but it comes with only 8/16GB of storage. What a joke! The design was nice though.
Really nice phone to look at and use. Top end and fast. Glass front and back with that etched sparkly effect. Cool. Awful battery life though, and had a habit of freezing up overnight. Got really hot when using it for extended periods. I got fed up of the freeze-ups and I was terrified of dropping it.
