CAMERA IMPROVEMENT VIA SOFTWARE ON THE WAY!!!!! YAY!!!!
Google Playstore (Check links below for current estimated delivery dates)
BestBuy and Other Stores
Coming soon to Sprint(Nov 9), TMobile(Nov 20), and Best Buy for the ripoff price of $449.00 16GB Nexus 5
BestBuy might price-match Google's Play Store depending on the manager.
Sprint version sold at BestBuy does NOT come with a sim card tool. I used a typical round toothpick to eject the sim card and it worked. There is a Sprint sim card already installed in the Sprint version but thankfully there is NO Sprint logo on the back of the Nexus 5!
WON'T WORK WITH VERIZON, SO STOP ASKING
WILL WORK WITH AT&T, T-MOBILE, SPRINT. See bottom of wiki for more network and Sprint SIM card details

Pricey at $69, but this TYLT Qi charger is the best.
Makes the Nexus 5 usable while charging.
Even better for the Nexus 7 tablet... Watch a movie while charging.

Nexus 5 camera vs Nexus 4, HTC One, iPhone 5S, Lumia 1020, Galaxy S4, Note 3 and Xperia Z1
Suggested Carriers Droidlife just came up with a BEST PREPAID article
Quote :For you that many be different, which is why that $30 T-Mo plan is so damn interesting. If I were just getting into prepaid, I’d most definitely give that T-Mobile plan a shot for a month to see how coverage was in my most often visited areas. If it doesn’t keep you satisfied, start looking at Straight Talk.

There are 40+ prepaid resellers. They all use one of the big 4 as the underlying network, so the service quality is comparable. Try www.Allprepaidplans.com for carrier list, plans and phones. I prefer this site because it groups providers by network.
