    OK so I have been seriously contemplating leaving android for apple for the last 9 months. Here is why. I have an HTC Incredible and I have had nothing but issues with it constantly running out of internal memory when it really isnt, the hardware is not all that great and even with the extended battery I cant get through a day.

    Then along comes the Nexus 7. This is my first tablet and my plan was for an iPad until I saw this device. I admit the price was a huge draw but the Jelly Bean OS looked so much better than my Incredible that I had to try it.

    I just got it a week ago and I love it. I find myself sitting in front of my computer using the N7 instead of the computer. The OS is light years ahead of what I have on my incredible.

    I am happy I didnt go to the dark side and am now in the hunt to replace this crappy phone.

    What devices should I be looking at?(stuck with Verizon for work) Ideally I want the N7 but in a phone.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you really like that vanilla android, I would go with the next lineup of nexus devices this fall.

    If you need to act fast, go with either the galaxy s3 or the new incredible lte. You might be used to sense instead of touchwiz. Both are good phones, but I think the incredible is $50 less or something.

    Either get the new Galaxy S3 or a Motorola Razr Maxx. No question.

    Galaxy Nexus!

    GNex+N7 in my opinion is the perfect pair!
    Although I have the gsm version, but still that's my 2 :-)

    OK thanks all I was leaning toward the GNex but wasnt sure if there was one on the way that is better.

    Anyone want a well used HTC Incredible?

    It's all rumor, there are no details let alone a release date. Could be September, could be March. If you hate your current phone that much and qualify for an update, I'd go ahead & get something. My stress level went down a ton when I replaced my OG Droid. The hardware and OS have both come a long way.

    I may have to get another phone here right away, and my short list is Galaxy S3 or Razr Maxx. Probably the S3 - better hardware (aside from battery), more features, potential for larger aftermarket battery (which would take away the Maxx's one real advantage), and depending on how much internal memory you get, it's the same price or cheaper.

    I just canceled my Galaxy Nexus contract with Verizon because with the MiFi 4510L I also have with Verizon lets me use the Nexus 7 as a phone with Google Voice. Now instead of $130 amonth I only pay $50 and get unlimited text, talk, and 5gb data per month. I also don't have to worry about when I want to upgrade my tablet conflicting with contract renew dates anymore.

    They let you...but you don't, right?
    I thought a Note looked ridiculous on the side of a person's head, I don't dare to imagine a 7-inch tablet!

    I thought the Incredible was a great phone. It was prob. the best phone I have ever had but it is just so old now and you are right the new OS is great. I have the Bionic which is getting better since I got the ICS update but it still has a lot of problems and I would not recommend that phone at all. I actually was just offered the rezound for the bionic from verizon because of the problems it has which I am still debating. By the way I am absolutley loving the Nexus7 by FAR the best android device I have ever owned. Good luck with what ever phone you decide on.

    Why hold it to my head? There is no ear piece speaker and the mic works across a quiet room. The Nexus 7 also works very well with bluetooth headsets. So yes I most definitely use it as my main communication device.

    Do it! The Rezound is a great phone, even more after the ICS update.

    VZW Nexus. Side charger and spare battery. Jellybean will be on it legitimately soon. And it is a rock solid stable phone (mine is anyway) if not I'd get the Maxx. Considering the S3 is almost the same dual core phone as well. As someone mentioned above there are no details about the next gen Nexus. Not even rumors. I'd assume that means nothing major if at all.

    To the original post.. The problem that u had is the problem most people have when they switch to apple... The older android were just not as solid and fluid as the ones available now... With that said the Dinc ws my first and it will always be special but.. U can out from it... Get a GS3 GNEX or HOX... I'd get the GS3 and wait for a solid JB rom because it's the best pick as far as future proof...

    Until the next Nexus phone cones out, the perfect pair, in my opinion anyways, is the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 7. I have my Gnex running JB that was leaked to phandroid during Google I/O and my N7 is rooted and unlocked too. I'll never get any Android phone that's not a Nexus. They just always seem to be weighed down with the OEM UI and there's always issues. I had the Droid 1, 2 and X until I saw the light with the Nexus lines. Never going back.

    The OG Incredible is still a nice device (if rooted ). I used one from the launch date until this April when I was eligible for an upgrade. I got the Gnex. Awesome phone, rooted first week I had it, and now running Jelly Bean. Gnex, and 7 are the perfect pair. I still use the Incredible as a media device for music and such while working in the yard, and still toy around with it frequently. It was, and still is a great device. I can't kill it. I have CM9 loaded on it and it still flys. I just really wanted the screen size the Nexus has. I'm old, and my eyesight sucks.
