I know a thing or two about compromise — I bought a Nexus 5 a few months ago. It’s not the phone I want, but it’ll do. For now.
It’s been years since I bought something that wasn’t the latest and greatest Nexus model, but this time I think it was the right call. Like other Android fans, I awaited the announcement of the Nexus 6 with every bit as much excitement as the entire world does when it’s new‐iPhone‐time. (Yes, this is a thing people actually do for Nexus devices.)
I found myself utterly underwhelmed by Nexus 6. Price, size, boring, etc. But I knew I needed a new phone, so I immediately ordered the fan‐favorite Nexus 5.
