Re: Gauging Interest?
I too switched from the iPhone 5 to the Nexus 5. When I first got the N5, I was very happy about the larger screen and the form factor but that excitement slowly started to wear off once I started using it and I started missing the iPhone 5 for the "Out of box polish". However, instead of just going back to the iPhone, I stuck to the N5 and played around with settings, tried various widgets to get the type of notifications that I am used to and after about a week, I felt at home with the N5 and I gave my iPhone 5 to one of my daughters. I plan to use this phone for the next year and then see what Fall 2014 has to offer.
