The Nexus 5: By far the best phone I've ever owned
#android   #nexus   #nexus5  

I'm watching all these posts from people like +Jason Howell fly by, showing off the great battery life they're seeing on their new Nexus 5. And I'm going to have to be one of them too. After a year or so of not wanting to stray too far from a microUSB charger, I'm barely thinking about it. The Nexus 5 really does go all day - even when I found myself trying to abuse it and drain the battery this evening in hope for good screenshots.

The Nexus 5 feels so light and so perfect and it's fast too. Today, the whole family packed up and walked a 12 mile round trip to the Google campus and back, and the Moves app tracked our every step. I had bluetooth on, location on, 4G on, Wifi on, the whole bit, and the battery didn't fail mid-trip, like I've seen before.

In the last few years, I've gone from the iPhone 3G on AT&T to the HTC Evo on Sprint to the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon and now the Nexus 5 on T-Mobile. Staying on the Nexus track is so important to get all the latest updates, as you know, and it's been a long time since I've had to swear at a carrier for a dropped call. T-Mobile's hung in there, and the transition couldn't have been smoother.

One of things that gets me so excited about +Android is the many great options out there. The Nexus 5 is an incredible device, but so is the Moto X. The HTC One and Galaxy S IV are great too. You really can't go wrong with any of the best phones from what I think is the best OS out there. If you are thinking about getting a Nexus 5, go get one. If you know a friend who has one, ask to borrow it or just hold it. You'll want one immediately. I bought two (at full retail, of course), and +Kristine Gray and I love ours.
