I ordered my Nexus 5 (32gb black) on Halloween at 23:00h, and it said "3-4 weeks" on my invoice. However, just got notice that it shipped this morning, just 4 days after my order.

The timeframe stated on the invoice might just be a worst-cast-scenario.

Or, at least, have a 512gb ssd like the surface pro 2 AND a microSD slot! :D

The Nexus 5 is pretty nice considering the price, but the lack of microSD pushed me toward the Z1.

Dang! Waited too long. Well, I guess it's back to a Samsung Galaxy S4 mini like my wife's.

Needs a 64 Gig version WITH Micro SD slot for 499. I would buy one for me and my wife without a second thought.

You don't know how much space some random things take up. I've seen 12 GB games, and 14 GB animated textbooks. I've seen 14 GB of music, and a full 15 GB of photos and video. YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

While not a Nexus, the Google Play Edition Galaxy S4 has an SD card slot and a removable battery, and runs stock Android like the Nexus does. Sure it's not the same, but still pretty nice. I'm not sure if you've already looked into that before. I can definitely agree with the work limitations as well.

Why in the world would you need 64 gig AND a micro SD slot on a phone? I have 64 gig (32 gig + 32 gig) total on my tablet and am only using about 12 gig total with OS, apps and all of my songs / ebooks (several hundred of each).

So because you don't need it, I shouldn't?
The answer to why I want the SD is because I often take cards full of TV shows and movies with me because I spend about 3 hours commuting to work, and sometimes, like yesterday, I get paid double time to come to work and sit there all day doing absolutely nothing, so I like to have media. My 32 gig internal on my S3 is almost full with MP3s and games.
They are also convenient to have because I am not allowed to plug my phone in to the computer at work to transfer files and my work email is gimped up too. But I can plug in an SD card and transfer.
Sorry if none of what I said makes sense. Busy work day today, no time to make sense.
MORE GIGS IS MORE BETTER!

I know right? I was thinking of getting some SSDs to keep my porn on at home. I don't have time to wait for a drive to spin up! (j/k btw)

I would be fine without the SD slot if they would put 64gig internal.

But they are all 32gig dammit.
