I can't seem to get Play to work. I caught a 32gb unit, got it in my shopping cart, proceeded to checkout, and was only able to get a US shipping address. I was in the Canadian play store, but checkout would only accept a US address. I can't for the life of me figure out how to change my info to a CA shipping address.

There is a lot of stock in the hands of carriers this year, unlike last year. They can only make so many I suppose, and LG would rather sell to the carriers for more than Google. Hopefully they will replenish faster than last year.

Are you using Unblock-us?

I use unblock-us and had no issue getting my Canadian address shipped to when I got a nexus 4 for my daughter. Don't think that's it.

yes I am. I just tried shifting the Netflix region to Canada. But it still brings up US shipping address only.

I had the same issue and then it was magically sold out. I think it's a glitch.

I literally just got in, put 2 in the cart and it was the US addy thing again, I do have one gmail account I use for the music service, double checked everything and then it was sold out again.

Tried to order either colour of the 32 GB model, and the stock kept shifting. I'd select it, continue to checkout, and the system would say my shopping cart is empty. Finally managed to order the white one.

Because the back isn't made of glass, I might not get a cover for it. If however the white back gets too dirty too easily, only then will I get a cover, but not the "S" type from DealExtreme. It won't stay put on Google's angled Qi charger. The "X" type however will grip the charger perfectly.

Even though I already have the Nexus 4, it did break down in August, and it took two weeks to get a replacement under warranty. My current backup phone, a Nokia 6500 Slide, is a heavily limited feature phone that can no longer do the job I need it to do. So the Nexus 5 will become the main phone, and the Nexus 4 will become the new backup phone. That's two phones for the price of a single iPhone.

That's my main reason for buying a 5 only six months after buying a 4, and I'm sticking to it!

I hope the Nexus 5 gets a significant increase in battery life over the 4 and the Galaxy Nexus. Those previous phones always did poorly in battery life tests.

Apparently there are some changes to 4.4 to help increase battery life.
