To many loyal users, the Nexus 5 is one special device. Despite the Google-LG device being three-years-old, many are still sticking by it as they simply can’t find a reason to buy a new device when their Nexus 5 is still pretty much dependable.

Google’s Nexus 5 came bearing some pretty impressive specs for a device its age. It sports a 4.95-inch True HD IPS display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution.

The Nexus 5 runs on the Snapdragon 800 and it comes with 2GB RAM paired to an Adreno 300 graphics processing unit – so it’s not all that surprising why it still manages to stay reliable. Most folks are satisfied with the kind of performance the Nexus 5 has.

Batteries in a smartphone don’t typically remain as good as new over a period of time but this isn’t an issue as many folks have resorted to exchanging their Nexus 5’s batteries. Some have even changed it up to three times just so they don’t have to say goodbye to their beloved device, as seen on Reddit threads.

Aside that, some Nexus 5 users flash their devices with custom ROMs and this makes their device current enough, in terms of software and stability. It looks like the Nexus 5 still has a lot more fuel left.

Putting aside loyalty and reliability, it’s hard to deny that there are plenty of better devices available on the market today; if you had to change your Nexus 5, which new device would you consider?
