Really? I'm not a guy that needs a ton of stuff. BUt I like to store music as I live in a rural area so I can not always connect to spotify/play. Also nice to be able to have a back and some roms for quick flashing.
I hear the N4 was pretty bad. I am perfectly happy with the build quality of the N5. I can't think of any current flagship that I would run without a case. IMO they are not really meant to be ran like that unless you work in an office or something and are super delicate with it.
I have had a gnex and an N5 and dropped both plenty of times. I just use them with a thin tpu case. Neither has broken. If you run the phone naked well then of course any phone can break from a short fall depending how it lands.
Anyone with a 970 and a 1440p monitor care to run some BF4 on high with no msaa? Or even just ultra with no msaa. Trying to figure out if it is worth it to upgrade from my 270's. Comparing my results to reviews I'm not so sure.
