AnfieldBoy: Has any one had any issues with the power button becoming non responsive?

Mine will go to sleep and when I press the power button to wake it it nothing happens until I have pressed the power button several times at which point the phone will come onto the shutdown menu.

A hard reset may fix it but that would erase all the data, a hard reset on a iPhone would just reset the phone anything similar on Android?

A few hours ago it was unresponsive for about 10 mins and then started working. A long press would bring up the shut down/airplane mode options but a single press wouldn't do anything.

In other news, I had to uninstall whatsapp because it wouldn't run. Now when I try to reinstall I get an error message. On investigation it seems as though I have to either root the device to be able to delete some of the original files in a folder or do a hard reset. Are you serious?? My iphone 5 is starting to look better than a few days ago...

And I have just had to put it on charge. Thats from full charge at 6:30 this morning to less than 5% in 8 hours. No phone calls, surfed the net for a bit, couple of txts and about an hour reading an ebook in the kindle app, a little bit of fiddling too but hardly anything demanding. If I did the same on my iphone I would be very surprised if it was below 60% battery. Of course, the nexus is a beautiful phone but if I can't get 24 hours without a recharge at least 50% of the time it is probably a deal breaker :(

Got mine at the weekend - very nice phone :)  I am using it on Telecom XT network.  I put the 4G SIM in and am getting 60Mbps downstream and 12.5Mbps upstream at my desk in Auckland CBD.  Got to be happy with that.

Purchased around 2pm Friday through online 2degrees store (with $69 plan). No sign of tracking id yet.. Inpatient much? yep!

Any idea how long it takes for them to dispatch an order?

Finally got my 4G microsim on Friday. 113 Mbps down, 34 Mbps up at my office in Newmarket. More than double the speed of the home VDSL!

Just be careful running 4G speed tests though - they chew thru 100 MB of data each time. 1 test blew out the rest of my monthly data on Friday  - just as well I rolled into a new month on Saturday  Now all we need is some decent data caps.

In case like me you were late to the party or you dint spend hours finding out what your nexus 5 could do

I went to  try "ok Google" and it didn't work  , Now does thanks to this information

 

How to talk to Google Now

 

Just swipe from left to right or say “OK Google” when you’re on the home screen of your Nexus 5 and your virtual assistant will appear, ready to scour the Web, deliver directions, or call your wife. By the way, your language needs to be set to English (US) for the “OK Google” command to work.

@anfieldboy Will be interested to hear how you get on. Returning mine when I get back to Auckland and I will be looking for a replacement or refund, I don't think it's right to receive a faulty product then have to wait possibly weeks for it to be fixed.
I emailed the manager of the store setting out what had happened and asking what action would be taken to rectify the issue but I have not had a response.

My monthly data allowance refreshes tomorrow and luckily I have plenty left.  Second test was 72M down and 14M up.  Still not quite up to your results which are amazing.
