nexus 5 phone

Hi my note 3 is on its last legs.

I'm looking for a sub 200 pound sim free smart phone / phablet 5-5.5 inches.

I don't like apple, Nokia, blackberry or Motorola

I'm thinking nexus 5 because I never used the stylus or liked the Samsung add ons.

- will 4.95 inches will feel notably smaller for streaming I player for an hour?

- is battery life poor?

- will the phone feel laggy with the latest android software compared the original OS 2 years ago that it came with

All my phones were eBay 2nd hand

Note 4 was going to be a natural upgrade. I had one for a week once and it felt slower opening apps than the 3. They're around 250 for a great condition one.

Nexus 5 are around 150

Possibility of a nexus 5x compromise..not sure what they're ending at.

Any ideas appreciated please.
