Hello cellphone users 🙂 I want to know from people who own these devices. Which would you suggest, samsung s4 or the nexus 5? - Important to me a battery life, the phone not freezing, and call quality!

Both are excellent devices but you said battery life is important to you so I'd have to say definitely don't get the Nexus 5 unless youddon't use the phone much or don't mind carrying around a power pack to charge it up. This is from experience owning both of these devices so if you have any further questions feel free to ask.

Nexus 5 in my honest opinion. Not only can you get it for a better price (outright and on tab) but the phone will be constantly updated for some time, and they will be quick updates. Samsung has a reputation of taking a long time of updating their aging devices. Their is no bloatware in a Nexus device compared to a Samsung device. Camera and battery are most likely better on the s4 though. Freezing over time? Nexus will win that round. It will stay fast for much longer.

I'd go with the Nexus 5, based on the faster processor. Everything else is pretty similar, and they are both nice phones.
