The team behind Field trip is at Google. On this post on their G+ page I noticed that the Nexus 5 in the picture has a 4G LTE indicator in its statusbar that's only found on Verizon phones. With the Nexus 7 now available on Verizon this could be evidence the N5 is on its way too. https://plus.google.com/112037021176201752867/post...
I recently purchased a Nexus 5 and, for some reason, .GIF files will not animate via the Google Drive application. Oddly enough, they work just fine if I access my drive from within Chrome. Whenever I try to view .GIFs, I get an "animated image could not be loaded" error.
I have tried clearing the cache and the app data and I have tried both the updated and non-updated version of the app.
Despite a thorough search of the good, old interwebs, I haven't encountered anything concerning this issue....
Happy New Years everyone!
As 2014 begins, it's fun (at least to me) to learn what was the first piece of technology we interacted with to begin the year. Was it your alarm clock? Smart phone? Perhaps, even your pager?
The first product I used to start the year was my Nexus 5. It is always next to me when I wake up and I always use it to check for any notifications I may have missed while I was asleep.
What was the first product you used to start the year?
Can someone please let me know what will be available memory for use whether its 16GB or 32 GB version?
Also I'm planning to get the unlocked version of Nexus 5 from US as its cheaper than the one available in India?
Will the phone work for Indian market? Let me know
I just got my Nexus 5 and I did not like the idea of having my hangout conversations being mixed with my text messages. I'm sure many of you feel the same way. So I decided to download an alternative SMS app and I believe the 8sms is the best app out there right now. It looks just like the original stock messaging app.
Here's the link to 8sms: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.thinkleft.eightyeightsms.mms
Which SMS app are you guys using to replace Google Hangouts?
Despite of the price tag, material of body, difference in processor computing type and degree of openness system, I noticed that Nexus phones and iPhones have a lot in common. I'll list those features that I'd observed:
1) Non-removable batteries
2) Non-expandable storage
3) 8 MP cameras enhanced by software
4) Timely OS updates
5) Plain but solid and compact built
What are your thoughts about these? Does these features make the best phone for the average user?
So I can't decide between these two great phones. I currently have an iPhone and I'm making the switch to android. I like specs but I also want great features. On one hand I like the Nexus 5 because its pure android and its guaranteed to get the latest version of android whenever its avialable. But on the other the Moto X caught my attention with Active display and voiceless controls. Can you guys give me your opinion on which one I should consider?
What happened engadget? Weren't you guys supposed to show us the winners of the Nexus 5 give away, which you guys started on November 12th? I really want to know when you guys are going to announce it. Thanks.
So I received my Nexus 5 yesterday, and the first thing I noticed was whenever my phone vibrated, it was REALLY, abnormally loud. I checked on some forums, and I found others had similar complaints. It may be an issue with the vibration motor not being securely held down. Anyone experience this?
I called Google and they told me to do a factory reset (not going to fix anything), and then e-mail them if the issue isn't resolved, which hopefully means getting a replacement?
I had an AT&T Galaxy S3. I moved the microSIM card from the Galaxy S3 to the Nexus 5. Then went on the AT&T website and had a chat representative activate it. So far so good. Everything is working as intended. It feels like a large iPhone5 with a non-slip back. Pretty much what I was looking for in my next Android phone.
