Bit old now, that. Are you getting it mixed up with the 5X?

It's not a bad phone - the camera is pretty decent for example - but it doesn't stretch any further than Marshmallow in terms of Google support and the battery was trash from the outset, so if these devices are pretty old I can't image the batteries will be up to much.
A bit big, but still the best phone in existence, IMO. Batteries are a piece of **** to replace; the whole thing comes apart really easily.

Edit: seriously, we can't say ****?

**** is ok but not ****

A bit old hat now.
Very old phone would expect it to be a lot cheaper somewhere around £50-60
Would rather a xiomi

​Well your opinion is ****. I had one and it was crap. Dreadful battery life. Camera taken from a Box Brownie.
Liked the Nexus 5 but battery life was never great and when it lasted less than half a day I replaced it with 2 aftermarket batteries but both weren't great :-(
(LG don't sell the original batteries, contacted them and the only way to get an original battery is to send it to their repair centre)

People are daft, it just means heretic. Any sexual connotation is secondary.

​i still have mine, it was a really nice phone in 2013-2014, one of the best phones ever had
these boot loop... save your money
All gone anyway. My 5X boot looped and they nasically put new inwards in it & gave it back under warranty after 14 months. Love the phone even though it's meant to be my spare.
Writing this on my N5, has been a brilliant phone. Still recon I'll get another year out of it too. But probably better value alternatives now for £100 odd.
Fantastic little phone, though probably a little long in the tooth now. Never had any problems with mine though must disagree with the earlier commenter who was praising the camera on it, you'd be hard pressed to find a phone at a similar price point with a worse camera. It's better than nothing, and fine for the average user, but people looking for a good camera should probably look elsewhere.
Only reason I'm not still using mine is that I accidentally smashed the screen last year.

As a user of the Nexus 5 for a year and on the XDA forums, boot looping was never an issue. The only people who faced boot loops where those flashing lots of custom roms. The 5X, G3, G4, V10 had the boot loop issues.

If the refurb included a new battery, this would be a great phone for £100 after flashing Lineage. Before the OP3, the Nexus 5, (in the days of Kit Kat,) was easily the best Android phone I'd ever used.
Cold, old phone.
