Google Nexus 5 coming 1st week of December




We just got confirmation that the Google Nexus 5 will be officially launched in the Philippines this 1st week of December.

There’s no specific day on that week but nor we have any idea on the suggested retail price though.

We also confirmed that Smart will also carry the Nexus 5 on their postpaid plan. We update with more details as we get them.

    Any news on whether Globe will carry the Nexus 5 too?

  2. james says:

    si LG ba mag bebenta or si Google play? kasi nun si LG nag benta ng Nexus4, ang taas ng presyo. kung bubuksan na ni google ang Play store devices, mas mura.. sana.. sana..

    • n0h says:

      bakit sa india daw mahal din ang benta ni playstore di katulad sa us

    • Abe Olandres says:

      Not likely. Google subsidizes the Nexus devices in the US.

    • crackinthewall says:

      @noh: Kasi wala pang tax yung sa US kaya mukhang ganun kamura. Mga $450 +din papatak yung 32GB dun depende sa state.

      @james: Mga 23k din yan dito kahit Google pa mag-release dito lalo na’t si Henares ang nasa BIR. Sa HK Play Store, around 20-21k ang 32GB pero 23k sa India. Malamang around that price din pag Google nag-release.

    up ko lang po queries ni PJ at James… spot on po questions nila… :) (feeling excited)

  4. RJ says:

    Nagtanong ako sa LG store sa Megamall. Ang sabi sa akin yung Smart and Globe lang daw ang magbebenta ng Nexus 5. So ibig sabihin postpaid option lang?

    Nexus 5 from google will be available at lazada

  6. roiji says:

    sana wala masyadong patong…

  7. blackwing says:

    If ever Google Play will sell it in the Philippines, I hope they ship it from a local distribution center. I don’t want to pay VAT + customs duty that will be around 25% of the declared price of the product.

    • dvancleef says:

      Google outsource all of their Play Store fulfillment for Asia Pacific out of Hong Kong. If its done through Play Store it will come from there.

    Got mine from an an online store for 21k last week… Been torn between this and lg g2…my sister got the g2 instead… So far better than my nexus 4.. Worth the upgrade…

    • wheel says:

      I also plan to buy both, can I ask what online store did you purchase them?

    • Marquez says:

      how much does this cost? if the difference between G2 and Nexus 5 is not that far apart id go for G2

    • abuzalzal says:

      Php1k difference lang. I’ve seen and held the Nexus, it feels cheap. Tsaka 16 Gig lang yun.

      Mas sophisticated ang Camera at Battery ng G2, so mas panalo ka sa G2. 32 gig pa.

    • hover says:

      Abuzalzal, bakit feels cheap, yung black ba yan? baka naman yung white mas maganda hawakan hehe

  9. EarlZ says:

    Just like the N4 it was said to be smart only but retailers got a hold of it. Smart and Globe usually sells the phones as stand alone but id prefer direct from the retailer.

  10. THEO says:

    Bibili ako ito.. ito ang rason di ako kumuha ng G2 …

  11. Angel says:

    This is the best I read so far from the Philippine shore!

  12. meh says:

    LG G2 has a 3000mah battery, nexus is nice but the battery of the LG and Camera is far better

    • Jenky says:

      am not any indian spammer or what but yeaaah LG G2 is much better than nexus even if they almost have the same features and specs

    • renren says:

      Nothing beats stock Android so Nexus 5 all the way.

    • Ray says:

      Both are awesome phones but I do agree with you. Battery and camera-wise, G2 really beats Nexus 5. The overall speed and performance of Nexus sounds promising though especially with the Kit Kat

  13. Rios says:

    even if globe would handle nexus 5 they’d just say “no stocks yet” and sell samsung or iphone

  14. chevs says:

    yes! early christmas gift! want this nexus 5 badly

  15. fanatic says:

    yes! smart! na ang carrier ng nexus!

  16. Bartolo Colon says:

    Ayos! Eto ang hinihintay ko na maging available sya locally, para may official warranty. hirap bumili sa mga online, store warranty lang.

    • zer0ice says:

      Exactly!

      In one of the FB groups I am a part of, I read one guy claiming he got his Note 3 phone ROOTED. He called the online seller asking why the phone was ROOTED and the seller’s representative told him various reasons.

      Phones do not come out ROOTED out of the box. Somebody tampered on it. It’s that simple. That’s not so say that the case is impossible with local/official distributers/sellers, but you can always check the phone/purchase in the store, before you pay for it.

    • abuzalzal says:

      Prone pa naman sa Dead Pixels at Backlight bleeding ang N5 (as per online/YouTube feedbacks)

    • aze says:

      @abu yeps, pero siguro sa mga early batch lang na devices. parang nung sa unang nexus 7.

      @zeroice thanks sa tip. akalain mo yun, so ibig sabihin second hand ang unit na nakuha nya. yikes. salamat sa tip.

      @bart sana mas mababa sa presyo sa online stores para bumaba pa ulit presyo nila haha.

  17. Bartolo Colon says:

    sana yung U.K version ang i-launch dito. kasi may nabasa ako na hindi compatible ang LTE bands ng US version dito sa Pinas. Anyone can confirm this?

    • aze says:

      2 versions yan, US at International, yung sa UK international version yun. so obviously international yung satin.

    • zer0ice says:

      If LG Philippines and/or Smart are going to offer it here, they’d definitely sell the international variant.

      It wouldn’t make sense selling US-targeted product since that variant is manufactured to support US carriers.

  18. Dj Tron Mix says:

    Mga pre,

    Dapat ba ma-consider removable battery kung gusto mo patagalin ng 4 years phone kagaya ng s4?

    Pag hinde, ano ba maganda na kulay ng likod sa nexus 5, black (verry common) or white (marumihin kaso ok lang lalagyan ko naman case pero kakaiba sya)?

    Salamat.

    • zer0ice says:

      Pare,

      Kung tutuusin, sa panahon ngayon, ang tinatagal ng isang telepono is 2 years. Sige, sabihin na nating 3 years.

      So sa tanong mo, kung dapat ba nating isipin ang non-removable battery, well, it depends on you.

      If you are the type na napapabili ng telepono in 2-3 years. Then this would be a non-issue for you.

      If you are the type who sticks to his phone until it dies, then it might become an issue. However, what you can do is to optimize your use of your phone so that your battery will last longer.

      But manufacturers nowadays give consumers enough reason to ditch their gadgets nearly every 2 years.. has anybody noticed?

    • renren says:

      In all the phones I’ve owned, never did I feel the need to change battery so I don’t see the argument here.

  19. Rene says:

    I’ve had mine for 2 weeks now, got it from an online store. Medyo mahal by 1k compared sa Kim, pero still very worth it. Even if Play Store sells it for the peso equivalent of $349, still no regrets kasi una naman ako nagkaroon..

    Again I love the Nexus 5…

    • random says:

      ah sir, tanong lang po, pano nyu po nalaman na ikaw una nagkaroon ng nexus 5? pakiexplain, tnx.

  20. Tedd says:

    Awesome specs. Glad it’s going to be available on Smart plans.

  21. Videos says:

    Wow! I hope it won’t be too expensive.

  22. Rof says:

    Watch a review about the phone on youtube… It helps to decide what you want to buy… Nexus 5 is on kitkat na… But the camera sucks daw…
