    So instead of having to charge your phone once every 2 days you'll have to charge it once every 36 hours with the n5. Oh the horrors lol. I'll take the N5 at half the price and especially if you arent going to root or use ROMs, no fing way would I use a ****ty OEM skin like touchwiz or LGs garbage, not to mention the 6 month to one year wait for updates on the OS. Plus that extra GB RAM is being eaten up by that UI. Unless you plan to use ROMs and dont mind paying $400 more for 25 percent more battery life, then the N5 is a no brainer.

    Also i didnt read the battery article but I know once you set up the n5 properly you will get 24 to 36 hours and 4 to 5 hours screen time. That isnt bad at all

    I'm running the exact same 4.4.2 that is on the n5 on my note 2. And the n5 may be lucky to go 7 hrs . Look at the battery usage threads people see it a great day if they make it 8 hrs and the have like 5% battery life left. On my note 2 running the same 4.4.2 aosp kit kat I am getting 36 hours of battery life regularly along with a better camera, better speaker, external battery and SD card. So yes the "humanity" ....because I like going through my day not looking for a charger. Nice to go to the gym listen to music on my Bluetooth Sol republic airs while working out, then checking my email and stuff as I head home, go to work and use my phone for work and music and at the end of the day be only at 50% battery life after a 14-16 hr day.

    Yup still with the Big Red, for one reason only, coverage.

    A couple friends of mine are on AT&T and T-Mobile, and the areas we frequent, their phones struggle for signal. One of them switched to T-Mo recently and barely gets signal in her apartment, which is pathetic for being in Silicon Valley. Meanwhile in the same apartment I'm pulling 4g on Verizon. Sure I pay more and the selection of phones isn't as good (I would absolutely love to have an Xperia device), but I can always count on having a reliable strong network.

    I'm sure I'll switch eventually, but considering how strong of a player T-Mo has become recently and all these price changes, I think I'm gonna wait it out for another year or two. I would love to pay less for the same coverage, but so far from what I've experienced, still nothing beats Verizon coverage.
