    Default Should I upgrade?

    Well I was long time apple user, but got my new Nexus 7 and I love it. I have iphone 4 atm, and I have a friend that needs iphone, and offering me samsung galaxy nexus (new) for direct exchange? Is nexus much better than iphone 4? Only thing that I think that I will miss is ios, but it seems that google play will get its way in this battle. So the main q is, how much better is Nexus than iphone 4? What I will get, and lose in this exchange?

    If he'll do a direct exchange and you really want to go Android you can't go wrong with the GNex. I picked up a GNex in August (got sick of my HTC Amaze and was able to buy and sell for no profit or loss) and and have been happy with it.

    I was all excited to go to the Nexus 4 but the longer I use my GNex with 4.2 (especially a custom ROM) the more I don't feel in a hurry to have an N4

    I will be honest I'm waiting on my n4 as we write. I just find the iPhone to simple for my tasting. If your into simplicity an child play stick with the iPhone. I know a few friends that upgraded to an android phone from an iPhone an hate their android phone. Its not meant for everyone.

    I think the problem is that comparing iOS to Android in many ways is apples to Oranges and depends on use case.

    Perfect example is me. Even though I have an Android phone I use an iPad 1 as my tablet because it's for factor and app selection are better for my work flow in the field.

    Well I'd do a quick check on play.google.com to make sure any specific apps you need are available before trading.

    In general though, you'll find everything you need in the Play Store. You'll lose some of the pixel perfect polish of some apps but you'll gain a lot in terms of system integration and app interaction. That and you have so many more options for customization and granular settings (if you're into that sort of thing).

    If you've got a Mac/Apple TV and you use AirPlay though, I'd say keep your iPhone. That's the one thing that Apple has really nailed that Google hasn't yet.

    Basically do you like your Nexus 7 and can you live without what your iPhone can do that your Nexus can't?

    I LOVE Nexus 7. And iphone 4 seems a bit slower every day (defending apple for long time, but this is just fact, iphone 4 can't realy stand ios6). So it seems that galaxy nexus is mich faster phone, and seems i will get a phone that I will be able to use for a least 1 more year, with all new updayes. (Correct me if I am wrong)

    Sounds about right. If for any reason Google doesn't continue to support it though, the dev community will for a good while. It's really not hard to unlock/root a Nexus and pretty much impossible to brick.

    The 2 year old Nexus S just stopped receiving "official" updates as of the latest Android 4.2 update... I'd expect the Galaxy Nexus to stop officially receiving updates about 1 year from now... So you'll have at least that much time of updates in which Android "Key Lime Pie" (Android 5.0 or whatever version number it will be) will certainly be out before then...

    My Nexus S 4G is running nearly perfect since I put "unofficially" Android 4.2 on it... The only downside I think is battery life... But then again, it never was great battery life especially since I have 4G always on... My phone running Ice Cream Sandwich was comparable to the iPhone 4... My phone running Jellybean beats the iPhone 4 and even the 4S in some areas... The Galaxy Nexus is much improved over my phone... So that should tell you if its a good decision or not :-D

    To be honest I wouldn't have recommended the GNex now that we have N4. But without this consideration, the GNex is an awesome phone alright.

    The GNexus is quite a bit more powerful. I have both. But the GNexus is starting to slow down for me a little. I don't know if it's 4.2 or what. You will notice a difference between them. This is probably the end of updates for the iPhone 4. I don't know if you are using iOS 6 or not; I'm still using iOS 5 on mine as an iPod Touch. I hear iOS 6 can have problems on the iP4 but I can't personally say.

    You will find that android os and the gnex is overall a better experience then ios and iphone4. My wife has the 4s, and i tinker with it all the time and i can tell u the user experience pails in comparison to jelly bean. Siri, maps, multitasking and the flow of the ui is a bit archaic compared to the gnex running jelly bean. Apple really has to change things up or else it will continue to loose mobile market share to google for sure.
