I've had my N5 for a couple of weeks and I can't fault it. But as always there are pros and cons with any phone. The nexus is stock android and has no custom skin like sense, touchwiz, etc. and if you previously had one of these you may find it a bit basic. It's also been built to a price and while it is excellent value it doesn't have a usp, so to speak, like the Z/Z1's waterproofing and camera for example or the LG's battery. You will get an incredible bit of tech which will always get the latest updates well before any other phone, huge support from android forums and Google themselves, and should be comparable with other top-end phones for the next few years.
