    Thinking about buying a Nexus 5 from google. Just have some questions. Wanting to keep my 5s too. Can I use the same sim or do I have to activate them individually??? Would like to switch out phones when ever I want. Which ever one I stop using will probably be sold and the other will be my daily driver.

    Just switch sims. If the Nexus 5 uses a micro sim, you'll need a sim adapter.

    P.S. I give you 3 days before you ultimately return it.

    I brilliant lady (spelled SeptembersRain#AC) once said (I think) that the Nexus 5 uses a Nano SIM too, just like the 5s.

    It doesn't. The Nexus 5 uses a Micro Sim I used to have one for a week LOL. Like Heisenberg said I give you at least week before you get rid of the Nexus. I just can't stand Android anymore.

    The Nexus 5 is said to have a nano SIM in certain international markets. I had just seen the initial body showing the slot for a nano SIM. It was a prototype but not US released.

    My fault. I apologize for the misunderstanding.

    Bummer, I am still sorta thinking about a Nexus 5 and just swapping SIMs would've been convenient. Have you ever used the SIM adapters?

    They work very well as long as you get a decent one. I have this one and I've had no problems with converting from my 5s back to my Note 3:

    Why would you sell? I have my iPhone 5, and a Moto G, and as of today a Lumia 520 as well. But you should be able to switch SIMs and play around and decide what you like.

    Because you'll see yourself tiring out of swapping phones all the time and realize that the iPhone you have is really your daily driver. I've seen it time and time again.

    Nexus sucks! My wife had it for three weeks and she couldn't handle it anymore. To each their own I guess but I find it to be garbage.

    I returned the nexus 5 as well. The screen is a little washed out, the battery life and camera are terrible, and the cell radios are weak.

    i'll throw my opinion in here as well, I was using a Moto X before I got the iPhone 5s and had the intent of switching back and forth to avoid one of them becoming stale, but so far after about a month. my Moto X has been turned off and is in my desk. there's just no point of using it when the 5s does everything better and faster. and with the Moto X having more features than the Nexus 5 like always-on voice commands, I would think things would get boring even quicker on the Nexus.

    I still use my Moto X for Allcast to my TV, though. its a great way of watching videos and movies that I don't feel like paying for, but if I get an Apple TV, that Moto X is pretty much dead to me....

    I'd say about 2.99 days. It will be returned on the 3rd day.

    Given that IP5 and 5S have rather mediocre if not outright poor antenna performance, the Nexus has to be quite horrible if its radios are significantly weaker... but it is LG, so I would not be too surprised if that was indeed the case. One wonders why Google will not make the Nexus a Motorola product line.
