mwilcox: So customs have finally entered it into their system, but they still haven't created an invoice or worked out how much I need to pay them yet

zzz


How do you know they've entered it into their system? Do you get some sort of email update? Mine has been saying "held for clearance" since Wednesday last week. I'm just waiting patiently for a letter to show up. 


I rang them up. the date & time on the tracking page also changed to today at 11:39am.

Hopefully, I wonder if it would help to record the unboxing just in case it has been taken.

hey

since my 32gb nexus was cancelled by BecexTech i've had time to think if theres a better phone for me.

my galaxy nexus has just given me the 14% of battery warning (for the millionth time) so i really want something that will last a whole day.

can anyone with a nexus 5, location access and most other common options turned on and lasting a day report your screen on time.

else i think a black note 3 is looking pretty good.

cheers.

I had a nexus 4 it would only last until 7pm with a couple of cheeky wee charges through the day and using juice defender. Bearable but not ideal.
Now I'm pleased to report my N5 on the first day with all Google services and location settings on I took off charge at 6 am. I had moderate use through day browsing some music and camera. Put it back on charge at 2 am (bed time) and it was showing 33%.

Amazing! For the last few days only charged the phone once. Feel like I don't have to hold back and can immerse myself entirely in the new phone

Off charge 10:20 last night, everything on all day including 2x 60km commutes from the end of the whangaparaoa peninsula, screen set to auto: showing 54% remaining with screen on time of 1:25 (or 26% of ttl)

Also i live with between 0-2 bars of signal at home (which runs the radio hotter ime).

Missing the convenience of the gnex pogo car charger for providing topups twice during the day but i think this phone is going to do well and by all accounts improves after the first 10 or so charges.

note 3 does look good until you take into account the samsung overlay and the plastic leather (srsly wtf samsung?!?).

Boss bought a Z1 which has some pretty trick battery saving smarts and atm would be my second choice, but in the end, nexus, newest shiniest o/s and a more than half decent camera for once.

Just noticed 1 o2 very thin hairline scratches on the camera lens.

 

i guess the lens cover ain't very durable. Need case asap. 
i know it won't affect pic quality at this stage..but 100 more of this and it surely will. lol

Hey mate, i'm pretty much in the same boat. My iphone4 dies by 5pm each night so a phone with a decent battery is a must for me.

Am currently trying to decide between the LG G2 and the Nexus 5. Both phones looks great and have there advantages/disadvantages.

Here's my comparison so far:
G2:
Price: $800 from harvey norman for the 16gb (~$750 for 32gb via a parallel importing site which i'd probably do).
Look: Had a play in the weekend in harvey norman and was actually surprised how nice it looked. Buttons on back don't phase me, knock on is great and hopefully will become a stock Android feature in the future.
Experience: LG bloatware... however having never used an LG phone this is the unknown for me...
Camera: Decent enough, plenty of options. Basically better then the nexus 5.
Charge: With it's Li-Po 3000 mAh battery some reviewers have got up to 3 days out of a single charge! Very impressive battery and most compelling reason to go for the G2.

Nexus 5:
Price: $700 from 2degrees for 16gb (i wouldn't bother importing a 32... which will be difficult coming from a 32gb iphone)
Look: Had a play with one today in 2degrees store. Beautiful device. Prefer it to the G2.
Camera: Pretty rubbish but can be "helped" by rooting and applying the dev patch. Interested in seeing if/when google fix this.
Charge: Sounds like battery is not up to standard and will always be a concern.


So for me, the G2 wins price/gb (by importing 32gb however only a 1 year warranty with the importer instead of 2 years with 2degrees), camera and battery. The nexus wins on stock experience and look. The main thing that is putting me off is the LG bloatware and the fact I like the simplistic look of the nexus 5 more then the G2. Also the 32gb vs 16gb issue... It's a tough one!

Oh they advertise for $999 but obviously they are allowed to sell them for $800 in store. I went in on Sunday and they had a special for $900 and after the guy asking which carrier I was with (2degrees), what plan i was on ($30p/m) and typing some what seemed like nonsense unrelated data into his calculator he came up with being able to offer me the phone for $800 if I bought it there and then. Have to say, I was almost tempted =P
