"Finally a Google Nexus that made me switch"

I have been an apple fan since the launch of iphone 4. After the 4 to 4s and 5 to 5s that apple did i got tired. i Wanted a big display with awesome specs. I like apples fluity. I was looking at the nexus 4 and felt like i was going from an iphone to iphone because the nexus wasnt good enough either with no LTE and small screen. Android i have always hated it soooo much until i found the pure android by google which i got interested in. always wanted to try pure android experience since i am not fan of bloatware or slow crashing devices. Once nexus 5 was announced i wanted it. i saw like sooo many reviews and unboxing that it was time to switch. now i was on verizon network so i tried the HTC one, didnt like it, tried the iphone 5s and it felt boring so i decided to switch overt to at&t and purchase the nexus 5 and i have to say being a hardcore apple fan from having ipads, apple tv, macs, iphone, and using itunes a lot, it was the best decision i have ever made. i was stuck between note 3 and nexus 5 but since i am not fan of bloatware and touchwiz then i decided nexus 5 was the best fit. i was hoping i didnt make a mistake but i did not i love the phone. my girlfriend believes i am going to change back to apple because i am a very picky and specific person when it comes to phones and nexus 5 has absolutely made it the phone for me. What can be better then pure android experience, first updates from google, well built device, and google has a hand on it.

The real reason i got tired of iphone is because i constantly needed to charge my phone and i made every possible way to save battery life, wasnt good enough. The screen size as well (i like to watch a lot of you tube videos such as reviews before i make a purchase and to learn about products) was too small for me so i needed a bigger screen but not huge either like the note 3 cause i do not like phones that big.

Battery life is wayyyyy better then iphone but it is not as good as HTC One but i do not mind because i had horrible battery life before with iphone so its an improvement.

Price point is freaking amazing, you can get two for the price of an iphone and 4 times better then an iphone. of course iphone is aluminum but once you drop it there goes that nice design.

Screen quaility on iphone is good but the nexus 5 is amazing, gorgeous.

No SD card slot i do not care for because i was never used to it and i do not like using them at all either way. no issues there.

Removable battery not an issue for me because i do not like carrying extra stuff with me either way so what it has is good enough for me.

App store support is a little less then App store by apple. of course but i must say it is not like seeing night and day difference such as battery life and screen size.

In my opinion i would give this phone 9 out of 10.
That one point would be for the app store needs cleaning and better quality apps and if the battery was 2600 or 3200 mha battery then it would be the best phone ever.
