I bought a Nexus 5 32GB the day it was announced. I've had it for a little over one week now, and I really like it. Great as the HD2 is, today's software seems to want more CPU and RAM to work well. No matter how much tweaking I do to the HD2, it still seems underpowered. The Nexus 5 has enough horsepower that I think it will last for a while, hopefully as long as the HD2 has.

The first thing I did on getting the new device was to root it. I used ChainFire's root method from XDA and it worked the first time.

NYLimited is right about the SIM. The N5 uses a micro SIM. I got mine for free from a T-Mobile store.

Good luck with the new device.


Yes, as you said, today's software wants more CPU and RAM to work well.
I can't wait to get my Nexus 5 and root it.

Why HTC One? Do you want to use WP8 and Android? As for me, I would like to use HD2 until it is broken. I bought it almost at launch and it was very expensive.

Yes, same here. I used the HD2 till the screen stopped responding (digitizer problem) at which point I decided it was too old to try and keep it going. Still have it sitting in the drawer for some odd reason. :)

Cheers!

I am using two phones (I have 2 sim cards too); a HTC Leo and a Nokia E90. When I will buy One, I will use One and Leo.

I am boring from Leo. No active development on bootloaders, radio roms and other dark-side things etc... For example I didnt find teammates for bringing rmnet to LK.

Maybe with One, I can do somethings amazing (I hope) :)

Since I killed my HD2 I've tried a dozen ROMs for my Amaze. Unfortunately the only ones which are fully functional and stable are based on the last officially released HTC ICS-4.0.3 for T-Mobile. All of the newer ones are either buggy or with a broken feature I need to have working to use as a daily driver.

I was thinking about purchasing the rumored reissued Nexus 4 with true lte that's supposed to be released after the holidays, but after hearing of your nexus 5 purchase I'm reconsidering. I still think the 5 is a bit too large for my purposes, but with you getting one I know it will be well supported.

It's a great phone I wish you much luck and enjoyment with it.
Current device: HTC Amaze 4G
Bootloader: HTC - Dev unlocked, S-on
Recovery: 4ext - smart flash enabled
ROM: CM-10 - Compiled and customized by me - thanks spostsstar89 - CM - Team Nightmare
Xposed framework - rovo89
GravityBox - C3C076

Previous device: HTC HD2 (TMOUS - LEO1024)
Final ROM: NexusHD2-JellyBean-CM10.1.3 v2.7 - Tytung
Had more lives than a cat, best handset I ever owned
Lesson: If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
RIP

I would be hard pressed to argue with the N5 which is a really nice device, especially for the price.

As for the N4, I am using one of the hybrid radios which gives me LTE and around 25k download speeds. Not bad for a device which doesn't support LTE...

I have 2 HD2's which are in darn good condition (mine is VG and my wife's is excellent), but thought it time to have a current generation phone, the LG G2 (D801). Now, I am finding myself a little bored as it works without tweaking... trade-offs, I guess. :D

Well if tytung got a Nexus 5, then we all know that it'll have support for another 5+ years ;)
