    For what it's worth a lot of I Phone users I know were Android users. For some reason the OG Verizon DROID pushed many to the land of the fruit :-)

    Earlier iterations of Android were terrible. ICS finally made Android a decent platform.

    Can't argue with you there. Just helped my mom switch to Ting and picked her phone heavily based on its ability to run CyanogenMod 10.

    GB was/is still decent... Even if it is outdated... it just keeps reminding me I need a new phone.

    The only reason I didn't use android before now is becuase a long time ago (more like 2 years) saw a friend using it and it was so SLOW AND HORRIBLE. This created an image in my mind that a lot of the android is going to be like that. Just saw the Nexus 4 and I fell instantly in love with it. It looked great and it was, as android would call it, buttery smooth.

    Nope. Now you mention it, the only time I've ever seen a Nexus phone in the wild at all is at a Starbucks down the road from Google's Android building in Mountain View.

    I haven't seen any in the wild other than my own. In fact was shocked when I was at a party this chick spotted mine and was going on about how she wanted one so bad.

    I have seen A LOT of people around me with Android phones. A nice amount of people i work with and some friends have switched to Android in the last few months. I have another friend from work that ordered the N4 with me so we are both waiting for it.

    According to Wikipedia in "Mobile Operating System" in Q3 of 2012 the total number of smartphones sold is 169,179 of those:

    RIM - 8,947 (5.28%)
    Symbian - 4,405 (2.6%)
    iOS - 23,550 (13.92%)
    Android - 122,480 (72.395)
    Bada - 5,055 (2.98%)
    Windows Phone - 4,058 (1.8%)
    Other - 684 (0.4%)

    Those are big numbers.
    There is no way those numbers are even close to accurate...

    That's probably not all she wanted so bad.

    That is probably activations per day, but even after doing the math, the iPhone numbers seem a little low.

    Yeah they are. Read all the reports you can find. They are pretty close. Android is on the up and up.

    Recently, I have seen LOADS of Galaxy S3s, TONS of iPhone 4's (as usual, but it seems like a lot more. Like, sitting on a bus or in class and seeing 90% of the class whip out a iPhone 4 to text or whatever. Its actually a little uncomfortable), few iPhone 5s still, and just other random phones. iPhone 4 and GS3 lead the way, followed by I5 from what im seeing.

    As for the Nexus 4, I have not seen one but have gotten "oohhh"s and "ahhhh"s from folks who have seen me holding one. Think I said this on anther thread, but even an iPhone 5 owner marveled at the beauty of the screen and body. The thing is, this phone catches a lot of peoples eyes when they see it. Its a beautiful phone that just looks like a sexy black slab of sexiness. Sadly, when ppl then ask me what kind of phone it is, they're left confused because majority of the time they've never even heard of it.

    I never see any Nexus though. Before I got this N4, I had only ever held a Galaxy Nexus once but seen it in videos a lot and loved that design. In fact, when it was so tough for me to get the N4 I was considering just selling my GS2 for the Galaxy Nexus and just settling with that because I love the screen and knew itd get 4.2 anyway. Glad I was patient though.

    Update! Just saw my friend with a galaxy SIII (He just bought it because there was some sale or something)
    Well there's another android phone... the thing is everyone was impressed on what it did lol, even though it was a normal android software.

    Have yet to see another Nexus 4.

    I was in a TMO store a few days ago and the rep couldn't tear his eyes away from my N4, LOL! He just kept staring at the back like he was mesmerized by the dot pattern, LOL!

    He started asking me all sorts of questions about it... He had never seen one.

    P.S. I'm noticing a LOT of Galaxy S3 spam. If they aren't carrying an iPhone, the sheep are carrying an S3 because it's so cheap due to holiday deals. :rolleyes:

    I saw one at my daughter's daycare recital last week. I asked the dad about it. He had ordered it the first day and waited 3 weeks.

    Nope. No one I know has any idea what it is, and their eyes glaze over with disinterest. One friend of mine knows what it is but isn't particularly interested in the latest cell phone news. I know it sounds dumb, I feel like a bit of phone-hipster with this thing; "Yeah... This phone isn't very mainstream, I doubt you've ever even heard of it..."

    Yeah when I went to get my sim card for T Mobile employees did the same thing with my phone. They wanted to touch it and play with it. How much wanted to say back off haha

    Honestly I don't ever expect to see one in the wild. My coworkers have seen my phone and when asked what it is, I tell them and they never heard of it. All everyone knows is GS3 or iPhone.

    We need to remember many consumers still refer to all Android phones as DROIDS
