Seems like there are two dispatches of phones so far. Group one received tracking on Friday and that bundle of phones is enroute. Group two received tracking over the weekend and that bundle will leave today.

I think there is a chance that even if you haven't received an email, your phone may be in one of those bundles.

The cons are pretty much as expected, the camera overexposing can be compensated for with HDR mode according to the review and I'm sure this will be improved on in future firmware or software updates.

I think the battery life is as expected as well, would have been nice for them to have thrown a bigger battery in, although they went with what they have likely to due to a combination of space and money. Overall I'm sure this phone will be a great upgrade from my aging iPhone 4.

I ordered two 32's in two orders at approx same time. Both in white, they've shipped. Yours should too! Wonder if you ordered both in a single order?

Why in most of the first reviews the phone looks so dirty...full of fingerprints and stains...wonder if it's attractive to these things or it's just because the review guy forgot to wash his turkey grease hands

The battery does not surprise me - at $350 you are going to cut a couple of corners. Moto X is the way to go if you want battery life and prices are coming down on that handset if wait.

No phone is perfect but bang for buck and no contract you will not go wrong here.

The unit in the review looks like it's a "finalized" prototype which has been handled by numerous people and not a fresh production unit out of the box.

My note 2 screen is cracked, and the digitizer/lcd is broke too.
Any good shops in Ontario for a decent price to replace this?
I ordered a N5. But if I can fix the note 2 at a reasonable price, I'd like to keep it as a backup...

IF that is your concern, this is probably the wrong phone for you.
Fixed battery, and not big enough.

Consider LG G2, which has amazing battery life.

I have a Galaxy s2 and I'm used to Swappable batteries but also have wires everywhere (work, home, car, bag)

Are we saying fixed battery phones are designed for none heavy users or we just get used to it. (I never liked the idea of fixed battery for iPhones, then again they probably last longer)

"What we're most glad about, though, is how much better colour reproduction is in the Nexus 5, compared to the Nexus 4."
Glad there's no color calibration issue as with the N4. Hopefully won't need franco's and others fix just to get the screen up to par.

Tracking still not updated. Still says "A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status--including the scheduled delivery date--will be updated." Got shipping notice yesterday afternoon, being shipped to Windsor. Will I get mine before the Toronto people?

Not necessarily. There are tons of heavy users using a unibody designed phone, such as the HTC One. Certain manufactures have their preferences—Samsung likes non-unibody, HTC likes unibody, Apple is unibody, etc.

From the reviews, it sounds like the battery will last a full day with typical usage. With my 4S, I'm used to plugging it in once per day, so the N5 sounds pretty good to me.

Edit: my shipment was scanned in Minneapolis at 12:04 a.m.!
