When will WHF get a Nexus 5 in for review?

I'm finding it very difficult to hold off from buying a Nexus 5 at the moment but with very little out there by way of reviews I'm reticent to buy blind so any idea when or even if the team at WHF might get one for review?

I've seen enough of the HTC one to know it's a great alternative if the Nexus 5 isn't much good but a review of the Nexus 5 would really help inform my decision so any info would be much appreciated thank you.

Try WHF's stablemate Stuff, they've done a piece on it. Don't recall too much about the sound quality though, I think it was more a look at Android 4.4 to be honest.

You're not looking very hard.

Every tech website/blog on the planet has either done a hands on or full review...

Well reviews have only appeared recently and vary wildly which is why I'm hoping WHF get one to review soon...I've just read the most recent reviews and they are mostly positive but confusing as one article praises the camera and another knocks it and that goes on across various points such as build quality, screen and usability.

My days.  Do Stuff actually say 'W.T.F.?' on their 1 to 10 scale?

RE: When will WHF get a Nexus 5 in for review?

I've had my Nexus 5 for just over a week now and although the camera is not the last word in mobile quality it is better than all but the best of the newer phones.  It won't replace my DSLR but takes great pictures, especially with the HDR+ for trickier occasions.

Everything else is superb - it looks a little bland (I prefer a 'stealthier' phone as it is less likely to attract attention) but it is very light and strong.  It fits brilliantly in the hand and the screen is so sharp and clear I've hardly used my Nexus 7 for reading or web browsing.

It's very fast and musically appears identical to my sons iPhone (using £100 Shure ear buds). Initially I wasn't sure if upgrading from the N4 was worthwhile but now I'm using and appreciating it more & more.

The range of quality, free apps is also massive.

Late, and like your dad dancing. Either do it properly, or don't bother. I'd vote for the latter.

RE: When will WHF get a Nexus 5 in for review?

Its not made by Apple - so although it has a much better screen and is half the price, and runs a configurable OS it will only get 4/5

 

Its not shiny enough.
