I dunno how this phone's cam beats my other phone's 23mp cam, pictures from n5 shows the pores and tiny sweats from the face when you zoom the pics, unlike the 23mp phone that's all sharp and pixelated already when you zoom in

Awesome phone. Bought in 2014. 2020 and still using it (as 2nd phone since last month). Battery still last a day in standby mode. Got intermittent issue in camera. Sometimes unable to start the camera and have to restart the phone to re-enable it. ...

You need to replace the back cover and it will cost about $5-10. If you are intressed in hacking then you can install Pwn-Phone ROM or Kali Nethunter so you can hack with your phone.
