As a device and its hardware age, it's normal to start feeling leery about new software updates. 

My Nexus 5 was fast with Lollipop on board and my Nexus 5 is still extremely fast with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update on board. I haven't run into any weird lag or slowdown, at least not yet.

Opening up folders and apps feels as snappy as ever. Moving around my home screens feels fluid. And I haven't encountered any jerky animations or transitions. Can't ask for much more from new Android software on a device that's approaching the three year mark. 

If you install Marshmallow and you do run into some issues with lag, take a look at our list of fixes for Android 6.0 problems

    “That’s extremely impressive, especially on a device that’s going on three years old”

    Why is it that so many people insist on this BS exaggerated aging of devices? The Nexus 5 was released LESS THAN TWO YEARS AGO.

    “That’s extremely impressive, especially on a device that’s going on three years old”

    That’s kind of a strange thing to say, being that at the time this was written, the Nexus 5 hadn’t even been out for two years. And I’m not saying that it’s still not impressive, but I’ve been seeing stuff like this more and more in reviews. It’s like even the facts about a subject are disputable now. People just writing whatever they want.
