I had my phone for over 2 years and it never let me down and as far as build quality it is 10 out of 10. Performance and features 10 out of 10 and price 10 out 0f 10 Would have liked to see LG bring out a new nexus 5 rather than the cheaply built nexus 5x !!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliance needn't cost the Earth! I am very happy with this phone. Super fast system updates, including two on the day of purchase, which was great! The phone itself is very fast, even against the latest and greatest phones of the moment that beat it on paper. It has a lovely screen, battery life that is much better than I thought it would be, a perfectly good camera, and a nice compact shape. Android 5.1.1 seems pretty stable and I have had next to no issues at all. This would be a good phone if it was priced the same as top models from other brands. The fact that it is significantly less outlay makes it a great buy. LG will have to go some to make a better phone than this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far. So many features. Still learning everything it can do, which is a lot. Fast at everything so far.Best smartphone I've owned. Don't think it could be beaten for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it so much I love this phone far more than a man should love a piece of technology, it's coming to the end of the two year contract that I have and I must say I am struggling to find a phone that I think is good enough and worth the money to replace my beloved Nexus 5. I was never a fan of the nexus 6 so don't think that's going to cut it, I'm holding out for a 2015 edition of the Nexus 5 in hope that I have a similar phone with updated specs that I can get and again be incredibly happy with!
