I did get the update some 2-3 weeks back and have been regretting the Lollipop install. It has become very very slow and crashes every minute in most of the applications. I wiped out everything and did a hard reset and running on very minimum apps. Facebook crashes still. Chrome, TBHP are holding on better. Now I want to get back to Kitkat.

We cracked dad's Moto G screen. Costs 5.5 k to replace it. I am now looking at One Plus one as an option. But this invite system is a painful. The device caters to most of the requirements and not being a big burden on the pocket.

Anyone can share an invite. Thanks in advance.

Moto G screen for 5.5k? Authorised Motorola service center at Meerut (UP) quoted 4.5k for the same and I got it replaced for 3k from the third-party repair center.

Exactly the opposite experience i am having with my Nexus 5. The lollipop is the best thing that could have happened. A fully loaded nexus with very little space on the hard disk runs like ussain bolt

Its not just fast but very smooth. I am convinced that Android needs to be enjoyed in stock.

Would recommend buying from Flipkart as they had very nice launch offers.
As far as I have checked they only have the 32GB version in pre-order and the 64GB version was not present (or i missed the preorder for the 64gb version)

A few of my colleagues in office have the nexus 5 running on lollipop and the thing is blazing fast.

Wow I am surprised authorized service centers are quoting different prices. I guess I will explore the option of 3 party. No point in spending 5 grand on screen for a 12 grand phone. Thanks for the info

Replied to you. Let's take this forward on PM. I would have loved to claim it myself but year end isn't a good time.

Naveenroy, strangely haven't received your PM until now. Am refreshing my inbox every second. Let me know if you have already sent a PM to me, else would you mind sharing to my email id shared via pm.
