Can we agree that the Nexus 5 was the last god-tier phone?

>Perfect size screen
>Great battery life
>Great band support
>Decent camera
>Great price

The only current phones that even comes close to it are the HTC One M9 (housefire 810) and the Xiaomi Mi4c (crap 4G band support)
>>
Not to mention

>god tier dev support

Currently have a Zenfone 2...If it were in a 5" package it'd be worth it but the screen is just too big
>>
>>51536309
some corners were cut, but it was a flagship phone with half the price of it's competitors.
>>
>>51536356

Agreed, which is why it was the best.

The only fault I had with mine was a crack in the chassis around the SIM slot...four of my co-workers also have 5's and they ask had it too.

I mean, how could Google bring this out and think it's any good? Check out the comparison between that and the 4c.

>Announced at the same time
>4c had extra 1gb of RAM, better camera, 0.2" smaller screen, missing 802.11ac and fingerprint scanner
>Literally no discernable difference for the price

I suppose I should have just labeled this thread "Why is the 5X so shit?" and I would have got more replies. I miss my 5 :^(

You sure you were using a Nexus 5? Cause mine never lasted 8 hours

>>51536458

Other half's N5 will last two days easy with light usage, one and a half with moderate. Not counting playing games because

CM12.1, custom kernel, and using Amplify to tame location services

>Only having one choice of hardware

I get the appeal of iPhone/iOS in having a highly optimised environment but what's the point when you have to pay double?

Honestly it's just like the Windows vs Linux argument...I don't bother with my pc because of gaymen and work programs. But given scant resources in a phone it's nice to optimise it and be able to have it your way

Does nexus 5 have strange display issues like my G2?

> Heavy modification

How is flashing some zips heavy modification? Replacing the in built battery would be a heavy modification.

Keep in mind this phone is now two years old so the battery is starting to get tired also...

Regardless the good thing is here that it is possible to do. It still has good battery life (one full day) without all these things but it does improve by ~20% or do with them in place
>>
>>51536309
Are you fucking retarded?
It had piss poor battery, only 2gbs of ram, piss poor camera, the only redeeming thing about it was it was cheap.

And then you compare it to the htc-uck house fire m9 which has a camera on par with the n5 and the chinkmi mi4c which runs the god awful chinkmiui.

If anything, the g2/3 was god tier, it was essentially a nexus 5 with a detachable battery, a fucken way better camera, same number of custom roms, SD card slot, and didn't break into a thousand pieces if you dropped it.

That same argument can be applied to Windows Phones, Lumia 640 is $40 right now.

Amazing specs for $40...
>>
Just got a OnePlus X and its pretty good. Camera is shit but it's not like there's going to be another Nokia 808.

Can't believe there's no NFC, its pretty cheap to add. At the same time I have no use for it personally, just happy that I'm back to a modern OS.

You wouldn't be able to have it the way you like it though, and you wouldn't be able to get anything done on it due to lolnoapps.

>>51536945

Bigger != better

>>51536927

>2gb was damn good at release
>Battery life is great
>Camera was decent, but it wasn't flagship level

Agreed with the G2/3 but the N5 was cheaper.

Having said all that, find a good current 5" phone. The M9, Mi4C and 1+X is literally it.

Out of those three, only one has band 28 support for Ausfailia so considering swapping to the M9 but they're far too dear
>>
>>51536309
>great battery life
I own it, and the battery life is horrible and the camera is crap.
>>
>>51537008
>Good 5" phone
Easy, lg g4, xperia z5, samshit s6 (to an extent), even the moto x style.

The chinkmi4c doesn't belong there nor does the m9, the m9 is a joke and the 4c can't really be considered flagship.

If you want a good 5", reasonably priced flagship-like phone, that will work on major networks like optus and Telstra, the moto x style/play wins hands down.

I just don't really get your fascination with the m9, the only appealing feature of would be the boom sound speakers and the somewhat attractive unibody design. It literally gets out done in a lot of other aspects like battery, display quality, camera, etc. by other 2015 flagships.

>>51536309
I think that was the best phone I've ever had. Sadly, mine broke and I have to settle for a refurbished iPhone 5 in the meantime... I really miss my nexus

>>51536622
No?

>>51536309
>Perfect size screen

For a manlet that doesn't use his phone ever, perhaps.
The rest is true though

>>51537637
Not just my G2,a shitton of g2s get some random retarded thing happening with their display after a while.
>>
>>51537059
G4 and Moto X are too big and don't have 5" screens.

yeah mine had that crack too. After a year of owning it it had the same kind of cracks by the power and volume buttons. even lost a chunk of the plastic after a second one appeared by the sim card slot. other than that and the shit battery life it was an amazing phone. i miss it ;_;
