    Hey Everyone, I hope you can help me make a choice, weighing the pros and cons.

    I'm in NYC, specifically Bronx. I'm in an AT&T Family Plan with an Unlimited data plan.
    I mention I'm in NYC because I don't particularly know the HSPA+ speeds in the NYC area.
    I'm hoping you guys can help me choose between upgrading to the HTC One X+, or getting the Google Nexus 4?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Nexus 4 no contest. Unless you want LTE For some odd reason.

    The reason I'm finding the choice hard is in comparing both side by side.

    If I'm correct:
    HTC One X+ / Google Nexus 4
    $199 / $350
    On contract / Unlocked
    64GB / 16GB
    1GB RAM / 2 GB RAM
    LTE / HSPA+
    HTC Sense+ / Pure Google

    Those are the differences I could think of, other aspects like camera and screen quality are negligible.
    I think I'm just hoping to hear something that drastically tips the scale in favor of one over the other.

    Pay extra for the nexus 4 and if AT&T releases a phone you really like you still have your upgrade

    That's what I did to cover my bases.
    I bought the Nexus 4 figuring if anything I can think of my decision, and if I were to choose the One X+, I can sell the Nexus 4 and still have my upgrade available to me.

    You can always go to an AT&T store and ask an employee to run a speedtest on their phone.

    I'm in Brooklyn and my speeds as far as HSDPA+ are respectable. I have seen as slow as 0.25MB to as fast as 10MB a second. I'm using a galaxy nexus and had a galaxy note prior, lte was greatly the fastest one. Back when att just launched 4g lte in the boros I had speeds as high as 50MB now a lot more lte devices are out I have seen speeds hang around 15-20MB.
