Just thinking of getting a Nexus5 and, while I don't expect to use the full 32G for a while I was wondering about external wireless storage - NFS or Samba. A quick google has not revealed anything useful about NFS.
Just wondering if anyone's played??
Though I may wait till I've got linux on it.

I use ESS File Explorer on my Android phone and tablet, works pretty well and supports SFTP and Samba, not sure about NFS. If you root the device you'd have a bit more control over it and I'm guessing could mount NFS that way.


Same here.. ES File Explorer :) According to this forum - http://tinyurl.com/psofprk - Android doesn't support NFS, only Samba. however, /this/ one - http://tinyurl.com/qgg8ss6 - says Busybox on the Android Marketplace supports NFS.
