    Looks like the rumours of a release yesterday amounted to nothing.

    Don't forget to add VAT on - £215 + 20% is £258 - so a bit more than the Nexus 4 that was £240/£280 iirc.

    Its actually the same price/ cheaper since the base model is 16GB.

    It's just you. Google have said that they won't give any preferential treatment to Motorola despite owning the company. I'm sure Google doesn't want to jeopardise relationships with other OEMs.

    I reckon Sony should make a Nexus phone next. They haven't had a go yet.

    Just brought the missus an Xperia SP. Great phone, the high end stuff they make really competes well.

    I went in to the phone shop to have a look at the lg g2 which is meant to be a similar build to the coming Nexus 5. I must say the LG G2 phone is one fantastic looking phone, I actually prefered it to all the Samsung ones in the shop although you do have to get over the buttons being placed on the back of the phone, which is a silly place to put them.

    EDITED from original post
    The main differences between the Nexus5 and the G2 (leaked specs) is the N5 has a slightly smaller screen, lower spec camera and smaller battery. My issue now is that I prefered the size of the G2 screen and the camera quality was blinking awesome and something I would want.

    Not sure I can justify the difference in price but would really like the LG phone. What do I do.

    The G2's hardware looks very nice but the biggest issue for me would be LG's software/skin. Not only is it ugly, but there are also some annoying bugs (like the missing overflow button). Also, since LG's software takes up ~9GB this leaves you with just 7GB's of free space on the 16GB model before you even start using it!

    Thanks for the info. Looks like it will be the Nexus 5 when it comes out.

    I hope the Nexus 5 is released soon. The waiting is agonizing!



    ^ The white N5 looks quite nice too.
