I really like what Google did with Kit Kat. I think we'll likely see more than the usual handset roll outs of this version of the OS in terms of OTA updates. It's that good.

So Far So Good
Have a Nexus 5 32GB(821) since Nov 5th.
Waiting for the right case and good screen protectors in my region.
Have a Nexus Orb wireless charger that charges the phone quickly.
The battery lasts me a day and a half or more using the Dalvic runtime but using ART runtime I get less battery time.
USB OTG works when different apps installed depending on whether the phone is rooted or not using a micro USB cable or USB flash drives that have micro USB connectors built in.
I didn't root yet so I'm using Nexus Media Importer. for my USB OTG.
Miss not having the removable battery and micro SD card slot I had with my Note 2
Thanks for reporting in SH. Agreed, those are the two omissions that would have been nice to see built into this phone. That's crazy good battery life. What are you doing during that day and a half? Light use?
The ART runtime is very fast but Google needs to do a lot more work if they want to use it exclusively so there's no patent problems with Java owner Oracle
This large ART speed gain comes with down sides , such as larger apps hence longer installation times, but the ART experiment seems ripe to replace Dalvik in some of the next major Android versions.
Oracle sued Google and lost resulting in being ordered to pay Google's legal costs.
What is it with Google and the lack of micro SD support on it's products?
Agreed. It is one of the few omissions on this device and others. Good thing a 32GB N5 is reasonably priced.
This would be my phone if it was on Verizon, but no. Moto X is a good alternative at least.
Nice, I prefer the 7 but this is still nice
