I'd love to upgrade to a Nexus 5, just not in the budget at the moment sadly, even with selling my N4 at a 100% profit (aka got it for 0$ on my contract)

Geezus.. people.. its a phone! .. I can't believe people are this worked up especially those with a N4. What makes the 5 so better than 4? Almost nothing.

Fools.

Always on listening and 32GB, thats what I'm excited for. And a slightly better camera since the N4s one is garbage. As for custom roms, paranoid android is my favorite.

If phones came with expandable storage buying a phone with a set amount wouldn't be necessary.

Nexus series is becoming the iphones of the Android world.

At less then half the cost of an iPhone, I think sacrificing expandable storage is perfectly okay. Becoming the iPhones of the Android world... *snerk*

A phone that gets released how often? With how little differences? That drives the Android world crazy..
