Too big, don't want. I'm waiting for a Nexus 5 v2.

This.

Battery and screen look to be brilliant though!

The size looks lovely. It's comparable with the iPhone 6+, which I really like, but the screen is even bigger. Which is awesome.

But it's too much. At least, too much for my "buying the phone outright to avoid contracts" scheme. I'm loving my OnePlus One even more now :D And Three's PAYG actually connects me to LTE occasionally, near Milton Keynes. Birmingham on Sunday. That'll be a proper 4G test...

5.0 is out!

Update package for Nexus 5 if you don't want to wait. Instructions.

I like it. Feels a bit snappier, very pretty, enjoying the material design thing a lot. Will be interested to see how it affects battery life (though uninstalling the Facebook app has given me another ~3h per day which comfortably takes me to bedtime, so not really a problem any more).

Downloading for my Nexus 7... looking forward for this to make it to the OnePlus One. I think they've said they want it ready within 3 months of release. Clock's ticking guys!

I want a new phone too but the current ones are no better than my Nexus 5 and all the upcoming ones seem flawed or overpriced.

If my N5 broke tomorrow, I'd either have a Moto X 2nd Gen with a wood back or wait for an HTC M9.

I do like the look of the M9 as well, I must admit. It's not that far away I don't think is it?

The OnePlus One is still a nice budget phone. Also, the Moto E. A bit long in the tooth by now, but the price should reflect that. Depends on how top-of-the-range you need.

I'd have been tempted by the Nexus 6 if it was half the price, but as it is... meh.

I'm out of touch with HTC. Someone at my old job loved his M8 though.

Yeah teh N6 is a little steep now. I want new because I don't want slow. This one stutters occasionally and I want a decent camera. I do like the slow mo thingy on the iphone I must admit....

HTC confirmed it will launch in mid March for Europe and Taiwan, and towards the later end of March for the US.

The OnePlus Two is also out this year, so that will be one to watch for if they can keep it as budget priced as the One.

Amazon gave me £15 free for their app store.

Don't know what to get. There's fuck all.
