Nexus 5 - $299 in Smart Phones and Hand-held Devices Posted February 26, 2014 well, two days in and the verdict is: this phone is absolutely amazing. i was seriously blown away by the display when i started up netflix on it. i was concerned about the camera, but those concerns have been abated. the camera is excellent and with the OIS puts it far ahead of other phone cameras i've used. my old phone is no slouch, either, but the nexus makes it look like a toy (htc one s).
