How is everyone's experience with the Nexus 5 GPS? I'm close to pulling the trigger, and ditching my iphone, but i've been reading GPS complaints on the web which is very concerning.

No problem with mine. It locks on much faster than my previous phone and is as accurate.

I didn't know there were GPS complaints.

I read it in a few online reviews and there is a thread here.

Seems like a hardware issue and im hoping it should be addressed in the next batch

Interesting.

I returned three of them due to hardware problems - loose power button and dead pixels. I have the latest iteration of the phone now with no GPS issues and the previous defective models I had also had no GPS problems.

Seems the roll-out of the N5 hasn't been without its share of issues.
