I will refuse the package, not looking to sell at cost because the transportation/time taken to find a seller wouldn't be worth it. (Unless someone is willing to come to my house/at work lol)
place and ad and see.

you could probably get at least 450 for 16gb which is 40+ over cost.

That may sound simple, but it's really not for most, dealing with strangers always has its risks.

Buyers remorse does suck.

I've never bothered selling any of my personal belongings, most times I just end up giving items to relatives/friends or they stay in drawer collecting dust.

The way to think about it is... Radio ON time... when its ON it sucks power... If your downloading a 10mb file, at 1mb/s it takes 10 seconds of radio ON time... when your download using LTE at 5mb/s it take 2 seconds, so your saving 8 seconds or ON time.

I have had my N4 on LTE since i bought it... I've never had it heat up, and can definitely tell it uses less power.

EDIT: My bad... This was how it was explained to me, this is not correct.

Assuming the radios (4g vs LTE) using exactly the same amount of power while on.

This isn't anywhere even close to how it works.

The N5 also apparently employs new technology for the radio to reduce its heat generation and power consumption.

3g and lte radios consume very different amounts of power ("The bottom line is that while LTE is much faster than 3G, it also uses more energy.") although nexus 5's lte power consumption may be lower thanks to qualcomm we'll have to wait and see ..

Has anyone got a micro sim from rogers in anticipation for their N5?
If so how much did they charge?

Thanks
