Nexus 5 comes with a limited 12-month warranty for the original purchaser only
Everybody wants a piece of the 5-icher Google Nexus 5 with its Android 4.4 KitKat supporting Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixels and 2.26 GHz Quad- Core Krait CPU. No matter if you’re already the handset or you’re about to purchase one, there are already questions popping into your head. So, we’re about to shed light on some of the main questions regarding the purchasing of the popular handset, and sum up what you necessarily need to know about Nexus 5 that hasn’t been clarified in the original Google website.
We start with the most significant matter and that is the warranty you get with the Google Nexus 5. Officially, the info applies to handsets and accessories purchased in the US and LG provides a limited manufacturer’s warranty for the device. The warranty card in the pack features details on the limited warranty and it’s said that ‘the additional warranty doesn’t affect your legal rights.’ Apparently, the limited 12- month warranty applies ONLY for the original purchaser.
Another matter is that your Nexus 5 will work without activation on a carrier, so you can activate the device via WiFi for a data connection and you can use VOIP service in order to make and receive calls. Furthermore, you’ll be reminded to place a SIM card while going through the setup. If you decide to activate your Nexus 5 on a carrier, however, and yours happens to be Sprint, note that they can activate the 32GB version the same way they do with the 16GB one, even though they won’t offer TEP.
More importantly, the purchasing of Google Nexus 5 from Google Play is location based so if you’re from the USA you’ll automatically order the Nexus 5 D820 model with LTE bands for the relevant carriers and if you’re from Europe, for example, you’ll be purchasing the Nexus 5 D821 model with the LTE Band 1/3/5/7/8/20 support.
