And then let's watch LG and Google only put 16GB into this beast. Pathetic if true.
Well, you're making that up. It's not going to be released until November (announced in October) so until then you don't know what storage choices there will be.
Just as the Nexus 4 had 8GB or 16 GB choices at 2 price points, the Nexus 5 will probably have 16 or 32GB choices. Lots of people chose the Nexus 4 8GB configuration, but they did so willingly as it was the lowest priced. If my guess is correct with the 16/32 choices, many will choose the 16GB willingly.
What is the practical limit for the screen size and resolution of smartphones? Will we see 7" phones with 4K resolution soon? 5" is a bit too big for my pockets and I can barely tell the difference between 720p and 1080p. I'd prefer they work on the battery and display/peripheral connectivity, so that I just pop it on the desk and it automatically connects with my monitors and keyboard/mouse.
Sounds great, but i`m gonna have to skip this generation. My first phone was a Nexus S. I skipped the Galaxy Nexus and just got a Nexus 4 a few months ago. No sense upgrading when my current phone is perfectly fine.
And here I thought that LG wasn't going to make the nexus 5!!
LG never said that. An LG VP's comments were mistranslated and everyone ran with it -- even though
1) LG immediately pointed out it was a mistranslation and offered a better translation themselves. But LG cannot confirm or deny they are making the Nexus 5 -- that's up to Google to say. Basically all LG can say is "no comment". It's up to Google to make announcements about their phone. LG can make announcements about the G2.
2) LG showed a prototype of the Nexus 5 to Google's Larry Page when he vistied LG headquarters in South Korea in early May. < THAT was the real evidence. And for some reason, most in the media ignored it. But I saw that as the smoking gun.
