    What do you miss from your previous phone that you wish the Nexus 4 had?

    I miss the vibrator on my S3, It was much more powerful. I also miss the feel of the S3. I liked the rounded smooth.

    The Social Hub/People Hub from Windows Phone.

    That was always a winner in my eyes, you never got that on any device... well I can't say any.. Still it was one of my favorite reasons to choose WP over iOS and Android. Just had my Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn all in one place. Can reply from there and all that goodness.

    Also being able to pin my Girlfriends Facebook/Twitter and what not onto my homescreen to see when she updated her facebook status and tweeted.

    The camera from my 4s. Wasn't as good as some new high end phones, but better than the N4. The messaging app was better too. Overall I love the N4.

    I came from a blackberry so I sort of liked how it had a red icon to show you had an unread message. Also, I liked how a notification wouldnt go away unless you actually addressed it, in Android I can sometimes accidently swipe the notification and forget I have something to reply to. I thought I'd miss the feature of how bb incorporate all your message type notification into one message centre. But, I just look at all my messages through the notification bar so its not that much missed.

    I had the Galaxy Nexus, and while I thought it was a great phone, I don't miss anything about it. The N4 is better in every way. I certainly don't miss my Verizon bill.

    I was using an iPhone 4. I missed nothing from it. Glad I made the switch and never looked back.

    Lots of things.

    -iOS was getting stale for me. The update from ICS to JB is what sold me. I think at that point Google proved that android could be just as smooth and fast as iOS and is capable of so much more.

    -The larger screens with the same or higher PPI than the "retina" displays drew me in.

    -The nerd in me! I was finding that the iPhone just wasnt as usable for me if it wasnt jailbroken. I was noticing, and have now confirmed, that almost all of those tweeks I had installed through Cydia came stock or could be added without root on Android. I am unlocked and rooted now though and just flashed my first kernel last night.

    -The pace at which android is moving is incredible. You don't get that with Apple.

    I came from the 3GS and then the 4S and loved them both. I was, and still am, an Apple fan. But I think it was time for me to try the other side. I couldn't just sit on one side of the fence. I also can't say that I would never go back. Depending on what Johny Ive does with iOS over the next couple of years, I may go back. For now though, I'm here to stay. I love android. I love that I have experience with both sides now and feel I can offer better advice to people and be less biased.

    TL;DR Time for change

    The only thing I miss about my last phone (International HTC One X) is the fact that the back didn't have a crack in it after 2 months use... Other than that this phone is superior in every way...

    I miss the camera on my GSII. I definitely took it for granted looking back. The Nexus 4's camera works... but the GSII worked quite a bit better.

    Same here. Besides the huge Verizon bill, I really don't miss the screen and the blue ghosting you would see from the navigation bar and notification bar.

    I came from an LG Optimus V, so I can safely say that I miss absolutely nothing.

    I mean I suppose having an SD card slot was nice, I guess, but that's about it.
