Every forum that discusses about the device leaks grabs the attention of a large number of traffic and consumers are like “Take my money now!!”

It all started at the KitKat statue unveiling at the Google world. One of the Google employee was using the Nexus 5(probably for testing) at the event and got caught in the video.
