Back in July I placed a question on the official twitter account of project Ara. I wanted to find out if there's a dedicaded site or information-document about the specs and / or requirements to build Hardware for the +Project Ara +Project Ara

But I never got an answer. Anyone have more info on this?
Thanks!

Since I upgraded to #Android 5.0, I have several problems with my #Nexus5 . I have a certain lag in the system. When I quit an app, I always have a second of lag between app and home_screen which doesn't seem to be normal. (I didn't had that in 4.4.4)

Also the camera shows less performance in e.g focussing and release.
Sometimes also even the Keyboard shows up when I want to type sth.
I also have trouble with the card view of open apps. It's a nice feature but I miss a feature my old LG G2 had: A button to quit all apps at once..  
To be honest, I often think about #windowsphone  but then I noticed this article by Tom Warren: 
http://www.theverge.com/2014/12/11/7377021/ive-given-up-on-windows-phone. But Since I don't really use lots of different apps (How could my Nexus handle them anyway?) I guess It may be worth a try anyway.

More issues with the Nexus 5x

I have to admit that i'm not a huge fan of the new Nexus 5x as it just has too many issues and inadequateness.

In fact, I already had the idea to sell it but in my home country there was a price drop from 500 to 399CHF (~ 400$). So after 3, 4 weeks I already have a huge loss in price..

The newest episode in issues is a strange circle that appears after some time on top of the Google search bar. It seems like a left over from a tab animation. Anyone else with this issue?

Nexus 5  - 
 
Since I updated my N5 to Lollipop, I face some problems which I didn't had with Android 4.4.x

I already mentioned the problem with the lag when switching back to the homescreen. See a little video here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laJWi91Y1Ug

Yesterday I identified another problem. I know the camera for my Nexus 5 is not the best - to be honest, it's a real disaster. However,  I had better results with 4.4.x but yesterday I also noticed that when zooming in, the picture is always displaced even if i use the same perspective. See the attached files for example.

To be honest, I'm getting tired with Nexus devices. I always liked the fact that the OS is very slim compared to HTC Sense or Samsung's TouchWiz UI but for my next Phone I might go with the M9 or SGS6. I also considering switching to iOS which would be a big deal for me because I was never with another mobile OS than Android but as I already said, I'm getting tired of all the problems I have with my Nexus 5

Update:

After I got the Android 5.1 update, some of the issues are gone. Also the camera problem seems to be solved now.
