Absolutely...compared to the garbage that is known as Touchwiz and LG's overlay. 

Not compared to say...stock.  Or Motorola's implementation.

 

Heck, even go back to when Motorola used their Motoblur, Sense is far more bloated.

 

Comparing bloat to other bloat doesn't qualify as minimal.  It just means it is lighter bloat.

I got the Nexus 5 on T-Mobile and I LOVE IT!!! I don't use my iPhone at all anymore...the only one that still calls it is my boss ... lol  Dump Verizon they are TERRIBLE and expensive...go with AT&T or T-Mobile for the best all around service and support and price.

Fixed tht  for ya  :)

 

I like my LG G2.  Works great, fast.  No problems.  Only thing I dont like is the shinny/slippery back.

 

I got an Amzer silicone case and the phone still has it's plastic not removed. No slippery slopes. Pure grip.

Thanks. Not a big fan of cases. There is a video/page out there I saw where someone took sand paper and it took away the skin and made it a dull grayish color. So I may try that.

Why would you want to bring down the resale value like that?

 

Because of that rubberized case, my 3 month phone still looks as new. 

 

See you at xda.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions, disappointed the nexus 5 isn't available either. I'll have look at the HTC One and Moto X phones!

I went to a few BestBuy's wih no luck, called radioshack, tmobile, sprint and they wouldn't price match. Ordered a 32GB 1 day shipping for $445, checked on Craigslist and got a 32GB for $380. Playing with it now, trying to like it over iOS, adding all my apps that I have on my iPhone and forcing myself. It's nice so far.

I picked up a T-Stand Hybrid Dual Layer Deluxe armor case for my Optimus G Pro on Amazon and it's pretty rugged. Silicone on the corners, hardshell on the back with a kickstand. Needed to use a plastic knife to wedge in the last side & get the silicon bumper placed right along the bezel the first time, but at <$6.00? 4 months in and still good.
