Android Nexus 5 thread

Guys anyone knows the breakup of the pricing if I decide to buy it from the US using comgateway?

Trying to figure out if it makes sense at all with the rising exchange rate, no warranty in India etc.

I figure it out to be like this:
Nexus 4 = 399$ +
Shipping to Comgateway warehouse = 9.99$ +
Shipping to India = 25$
Total = 433.99$ (Rs. 27,341.37 @ Rs. 63 per $)

Am I missing anything? Someone told me that I maybe charged customs. However, I was not charged customs when shipping via PPOBox when I imported my Nexus 4.

I save a total of Rs. 5,658 if I buy from the US provided there are no customs. But of course, that means I will not get warranty. So Rs. 5,658 for warranty? What do you guys think?

Shipping via comgatway, chance of customs is 100% , they will also break seal to check.

Just a small heads up. If any of you N4 owners want to test KitKat performance before spending all your money on an N5, the ROMs are in a relatively decent state right now. With a few simple tweaks, my N4 is now up to speed, possibly even faster than 4.3. I'm putting away upgrading for now.

The official builds will probably be even better.

Nexus 5 stock? And he probably is a sales guy, how much would he know :| I think a official higher position guy can help with the date of the release.

Yeah the play store prices are inclusive of taxes, Also a local dealer says the local market price will be Lil less then the play store price.
 
The biggest disappointments for me in the Nexus 4 were the battery life and the camera. Just hoping Nexus 5 improves upon these.

Although I'm going to be buying the Nexus 5, I don't see much of an upgrade over the Nexus 4 in terms of features.

OT:
Is Rs. 32,999 the price inclusive of taxes?


Don't buy imported stock unless its cheaper. Remember, no warranty.[DOUBLEPOST=1383371688][/DOUBLEPOST]
How much did you pay to import it here? And also how much did you pay total?


389 usd for new jersey. I just registered in ppobox shipping and custom would cost 2.5k.. last time when i imported nexus 4.. it costed 1.5k.

Features? There are tons of features in both kitkat and hardware of Nexus 5.
Good article. Hopefully the decreased battery consumption will make a real difference.

That being said, Kitkat will soon be released for for Nexus 4 too if it hasn't already so that kind of nullifies that point.

Hardware wise, the camera, processor and the display is an upgrade. But yet, the camera didn't get a great review http://techcrunch.com/2013/10/31/hands-on-with-the-nexus-5-and-android-4-4-kitkat/
That leaves out the processor and display. My Nexus 4 runs almost all apps and games smoothly so again that nullifies the processor advantage. So that leaves out the display, which I agree does trump the Nexus 4. Is it worth upgrading for a better display? I don't think so but yet I want the latest Nexus in my hand.

I'm not complaining considering its priced accordingly. But, just providing an objective comparison.[DOUBLEPOST=1383385111][/DOUBLEPOST]

Thanks for the reply.

What did you input as the dimensions and weight in ppobox?
