What I'd like to see with the Nexus 5

With the next Nexus phone from Google getting ready, these are the things that I would like to see.

  • 32Gbs storage, so I can store some good sized videos, apps are not getting smaller and 16Gb just doesn't cut it anymore.
  • LTE - Which every network in the UK should have by the end of the year (including my favourite, Three).
  • Decent battery life.
  • 5 inch screen.
  • Slimport conpatibility would be nice as well.

From the rumours it looks like the Nexus 5 should have all of these, so it depends on the price.  The LG G2 also fits the bill, so it looks like it's between these two then.

Oh and hopefully when they announce the Nexus 5 they will also announce the release Chromecast to the UK (the app is already available so hopefully soon).

Update: 32Gb Black version ordered and shipped.  Chromecast is available on Amazon for £40, thinking of making a purchase.

2nd update: one of the good things about the Nexus 5 over the Nexus 4 is the phone radio seems to be better and I now tend to get a signal in the house and in shops around town, whereas before the Nexus 4 would be flagging.
