I have a nexus 4, on the Kodoo tab, can I get the nexus 5 at no extra cost? and should I bother to even get the nexus 5 at all, will my case fit the new phone?

If you have an outstanding Tab that you have not reduced to zero yet, then it would be impossible for you to get the Nexus 5 at no cost.

Personally, I would not recommend upgrading to the N5 if you already have the N4. There is no compelling feature in the N5 that the N4 does not already have, except if you want LTE speeds.

There are plenty of reasons to upgrade from the N4 to the N5 and I'm glad I did. Every single spec is much better including a much faster processor, larger full 1080p display that has more vibrant colours, the camera is much much better with optical image stabilization & it take much more vibrant & detailed pictures. The biggest improvement is the battery life which isn't way better but it can usually make it through the day which the N4 couldn't at all.

Your old case will not fit the new phone as no cases will fit the year before of the same model phone except some of the iPhones as they never really change.

I bet GTA 3 & Vice City play wonderfully on the N5. They do on N4 :D.

Ya they play awesome and look so much better with the 445 pixels per inch 1080p display, but like any phone your sure going to chew through some battery playing graphic intensive games. Companies need to realize ppl game on their phones & put a great big battery in them then you can rock some sweet games for hours & not be worried about it.

I've had my phone plugged into the AC wall and it does not lose a single charge.

Only if you pay out the current Koodo tab & take a Tab L.

The Nexus 4 case won't properly fit the Nexus 5.
