Phone Death

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
My Galaxy s4 died friday at lunch. Kaput. Guess the little Chinese guy that revived it last month will be getting it back on my next trip...

So I hopped on craigslist and got a Nexus 5 from a guy 3 blocks from me for a fair price.

I LOVE the Nexus so far...BUT am a little concerned about battery life.

BTW I have a ton of accessories for the S4 if anybody is interested....

3 new batteries (1 samsung, 2 Zero lemon Hi Capacity 3,000 mah)
At least 3 different Spigen cases (2 slimarmor ones)
Desktop charger that works with or without a case

Let me know if there is any interest.

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ Phil, I have just recenly picked up an HTC One M8 and love it. I was contemplating a Nexus 5, but after seeing the dismal reviews about its battery life, I decided against it. However, the battery life on my M8 is superb. I am a heavy user, and I can take my M8 off the charger in the morning at 7am, use it hard all day, and still have about 40% at 2am when I finally go to bed. Plus the phone design is excellent. It's a well built piece of metal.

=============================================================== From: Eric Wolf ------------------------------------------------------ I've had a Nexus 5 since roll out. Battery life can be very annoying. The problem is 100% due to the screen brightness. It seems every Android update resets the screen brightness control from "auto" to "full". The battery won't even charge with the screen on "full". I also use "lux" to provide even better brightness control. I replaced the screen on my Nexus 4. In the process I removed the battery a couple times. If the Nexus 5 is anything like the Nexus 4, a new battery would be under $20 and take about 15 minutes to swap. It's not something you can do "in the field" because you have to remove several tiny screws. -Eric -=3D--=3D---=3D----=3D----=3D---=3D--=3D-=3D--=3D---=3D----=3D---=3D--=3D-= =3D- Eric B.

=============================================================== From: Joseph Simoneau ------------------------------------------------------ FWIW, my nexus 5's battery life is fine. I have to plug it in on long trips with GPS, but that's better for the battery anyway. The only thing I don't like about it is that the antenna seems to hate my body...it drops data, gets a bad signal, and take forever to pick up GPS if I keep it in any pocket (pants material doesn't matter) but works fine if I keep it in a bag. Also, it never gets a signal as strong as my girl's iPhone, but that could have more to do with tolerance for bad network conditions than the phone itself.

=============================================================== From: Joseph Simoneau ------------------------------------------------------ I'm on at&t. Had no issues ever with my iPhone. The only reason I switched was because the inter-process communication on iOS (as I understand it) prevents Glass's GPS from working as seamlessly; hence why the pocket thing bugs me. Oh well. You can't win 'em all. I n a
