    NexusGirlX, face unlocking on the nexus 4 is lightning fast, so much so that i have trouble NOT unlocking to configure the lock screen. I only wish my iPod Touch could do it. Try it out if you haven't already....

    Did I solve your problem? Hit the Thanks button. Was I just a nuisance? Sorry, can't bat .400 every day.

    I've tried it but went back to slide to unlock.

There are still things that my iPhone does that I still like and wish my Nexus 4 could do so I have no problem keeping them both and using them. I use a pin on both to keep them locked. On the iPhone, I just enter the four numbers and it unlocks. On the Nexus 4, I have to enter the four numbers PLUS, I then have to press the little arrow thing to unlock it.

    There are also a few apps that I have that are done better on the iPhone. One is my local news channel app. The apps are basically the same on my Nexus 4 as the iPhone BUT the iPhone app allows me to watch their newscast right on the iPhone. I can't do that on their Android app so I had to install flash and use Firefox so I can watch their newscast. which I actually do on my Nexus 7, not on the Nexus 4.

    I also use the SiriusXM app on both phones. When at the lock screen on the iPhone, I can see the album art displayed as if I were using the iPod to play music. I can also pause/play the music in this app on the lock screen. Can't do this on the Nexus 4/7.

    A few days ago, when texting someone I just met, I gave him my Google Voice number so that he would not have my real number obviously but also because I could block him if things turned out that way. When trying to text him back using Google Voice on the Nexus 4, that app would not open and my whole phone would just freeze. I tried several times. I restarted the phone and the same thing happened. It finally started working on it's own a few minutes later and hasn't repeated that at all since.

    These are the most noticeable things for me on some of the things I use the most. I am sure there are more.
    Yes, but on iphone you have to swipe to unlock and then put your pin in...on the Nexus it should come up on the PIN screen then you enter your PIN and press enter...

    EDIT: I just realized I do not see a swipe lock on my Nexus 4 because I use the Dash Clock widget which replaced my OEM swipe screen. I have attached a photo of what I see when I press the power button to turn on my screen. So using this would make the steps the same number as iphone?


    I also have some apps I prefer on iphone. The main one is for my home security cameras. The app on iphone is free and works better than my paid app on android.

    If they made iphone with a 4.25 inch or larger screen, added NFC and wireless charging...it would be a really interesting discussion. The more I use those features on my Nexus 4 the more I like them! Also have the wireless charging for my Note 2! I just hope the next Nexus is LTE capable for ATT.

    I'd like to try this feature, but I haven't because I don't know what happens if, for some reason, my N4 suddenly doesn't recognize me. Does it then give me an alternate unlock method?

    Yes. PIN or pattern unlock as a backup.

    And? Google also pushes you to invest in their ecosystem.

    Customization and widgets are overated. Bought a N4 just to play around, really nice devide, but still keep the iphone, it is simply a better built device, and IOS IMO it is a more polished platform, always predictable, always works. It is those tiny little bugs android still has...

    Yeah, you can choose from PIN unlock or pattern unlock.

    After using the HTC One for a few weeks now, I'm contemplating to switch it for the Nexus 4. My decision would be much easier, if they had released an LTE version at Google I/O. I don't really like hardware or capacitative buttons and using the Nexus 10 as my tablet, I really enjoy these onscreen buttons. At least I don't have to hope for dim enough lighting for them to come on. They are always there.

    If I didn't have my s4 already then I'd definitely be choosing the nexus 4 over any other phone.

    Uh yeah..pretty much the entire purpose of time machine is to back up to an external drive formatted with an OS X file system...so....are you suggesting they make it work with Dropbox or something? Because then it wouldn't do anything unique as Time Machine does because they can't format Dropbox.
    The latest Apple TV is designed for streaming only and has no local storage..like Roku which happens to be the best selling streaming device. Things have changed in streaming land since the original Apple TV.

    Unless you jailbreak an iPhone and then you can do all those same things. Most serious Android users root their Android phone. No difference there.

    Between widgets, multitasking, and downloading launchers (Launchers are User Interfaces that allow you to customize home screens and the app drawer), is what sets Android apart from iOS.

    But I have also seen people who just can't get over that 'I like the look/feel of Apple', and that's fine. But also take this into consideration: You ARE changing Operating Systems, hence, a longer learning curve needs to be considered. Just ask anyone you know who has switched from Windows 7 to Windows 8. I did in December, and I am STILL learning things about the new platform. The one thing I would suggest to do is keep the iPhone as your primary device, and get an Android to play with without attaching it to your line. You can still play with it through the web, see what Play offers, etc.
    Unless you jailbreak. Then you can have widgets and modify the home screen.

    I just came from the Note II and loving the Nexus...no bloatware and Im using the 8gb model and as long as you dont store too much in your phone you should be fine. All my stuff is in the cloud so I have about 5-6gb left in my phone to use.
