Image of white Nexus 5 leaked and Nov. 1st launch date?

We have been teased with image and video leaks of Google's Nexus 5 smartphone for a while now. Even the service manual for the Android device has popped up. Last week, the Nexus 5 showed up for a few hours in the Google Play store before being quickly removed.

Today, the ever busy Internet gadget poster evleaks came up with a new photo on his Twitter account which he claims is a white version of the Nexus 5. He also says the phone will finally go on sale on November 1st, after previous rumors about an October release date have since been disproved.

The current rumors are that the Nexus 5 will be the first smartphone with Android 4.4, otherwise known by its code name "KitKat", installed. The phone itself is being manufactured by LG but will be branded and sold as a Google Nexus device, with a 4.95 inch display, a Qualcomm 2.3GHz Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM and an eight megapixel rear camera. The phone is expected to be sold unlocked and without a contract by Google. The Google Play page that was taken down indicated a 16GB version would have a price of $349.

So? The only "Android" thing about it is the operating system. It's an impressive device that will be released at a low price point.

Just looks like all the others to me - nothing interesting about it.

There's probably been about 500+ Android phones released this year (no idea on actual numbers but it's definitely A LOT) and many of them aren't that different. It bores me.

Its not perfect, but I am not a fan of two-tone, so I guess its one of those different strokes for different folks.

So that goes the same for all the Apple Macs, and iDevices in their aluminum unibody + gorilla glass?

I'm sure you can see that if you take everything you read out of context.

Of course, this is a thread about smartphones, heh.

I mean, I can exclude the Macs if you like and just stick with the two tone iPads, iPods, and iPhones.

Or you could stick with Android devices, which this thread deals with. Right?

My phone is the same color, back to front. Take Apple to a thread it belongs in, heh.

Are you having fun trolling? I mean, it TOTALLY makes sense to discuss Apple products in an article about a Nexus.

PS-- I don't own any of those devices, so what was your point anyway?

That's pretty funny when I was complimenting the design of the Nexus. I don't get how I'm trolling, I was just going by whatever logic is necessary.

Whatever. I don't own any of the two tone devices you mention, so obviously I must mean what I say in what I prefer. Now go play in traffic. Thanks!

Someone on reddit pointed out that the side and top view's camera position don't match. You can see it if you compare the small button with the camera position.

You're right. The rear view has the button slightly below the camera lens. In the other two views, it's in the middle and closer to the top.

NO Meh because it wasn't that great of a phone. MEH!

Sheesh some of you people get your panties in a wad based on an OPINION. I did not like it. Been there done that had the T-Shirt that I also gave away with it.

Meh again on the new phone. My personal take on it.

recursive - I can't seem to see what was insightful about your post regarding my post. Do you feel that every post needs to meet an insightful requirement before it should be posted? My bad...

It's actually a great phone with good specs. Price is low too compared to all the bloated Samsung galaxies. The only thing it lacks is SD card slot. It is a deliberate Apple like strategy from Google to make maximum profits over increments of storage space.

I don't know why other manufacturers don't put the 3 buttons on the hardware instead like Samsung does. That was my biggest gripe with Android and Samsung had the sense enough to notice it.

Personally I like those buttons to be software based. It means they can be hidden when watching a video for example. Makes the front of the phone very clean and uncluttered, especially with Nexus devices that don't have a manufacturer name on the front either.

Samsung didn't notice it, they just never changed.

Android has been designed to use software buttons since 4.0. I hate hardware buttons because they are inflexible. Hardware buttons can have their functions changed, sure. However they can never disappear, never change their icon according to their function, and can wear out when they move (stupid samsung home buttons).

A good example is how on stock android, the leftmost soft key (back) will turn to a down arrow when the keyboard is active, making it clear that you can tap it to hide the keyboard.

Lets see that happen with a capacitive button.

Because hardware buttons like the iPhone "Home button" easily breaks. Even on my iphone, which have been jailbroken so I could use swipe gestures instead, still the home button is failing. So Im buying the Nexus 5 because there are no hardware buttons..
