Fellow Nexus 4 users,

As I mentioned when I started posting about a month ago, I was an iPhone 4S guy moving to the Nexus 4 when my phone broke. I bought it from Google Play in late July and have used it as an everyday phone until then.

Over the past few weeks, I've really enjoyed using it! I loved the freedom of Android 4.2 & 3, and how smooth and different it was.

Now, as I go 'back where I belong, I will never again dismiss Android as 'an excuse of an OS', because I know that it is another experience, one that people love just as much with its own unique features and benefits.

I sold my Nexus 4 today on eBay, and have decided I'll combine the money with savings to buy the next generation iPhone.

The forum has been very helpful and interesting over the past few weeks, and I thank you all!

If you loved it, why are you leaving? What was the deal breaker?

Shows how dense the IOS fanatics are, to get on an Android 4 forum and try to convince everyone how smart they are for choosing an IPhone, which currently is being outsold by Android. . Duh!!!!!!!!

Like I said. These goodbye threads are just posted to start flame wars. Nobody gives a rats @#$ that you decided to leave for iOS. It doesn't warrant it's own thread. Just leave.

Can you not read my signature? I have no intention to use iOS on my phone. Never tried convincing you that iPhones are best . further more iPhones are outsold by Android devices because there are about 1 billion Android manufacturers. But I'm done with a person they doesn't seem to understand preference and also calls me dense. Seeya you can just live in your fantasy.

So what? It still has a better battery life then my Nexus 4. Battery capacity doesnt matter the same way specs don't matter either. And FYI yes the iPhone 5 DID have a bigger batter then the iPhone 4S.

There are more manufacturers of Android phones, because it is an open platform, not like IOS which makes everyone lock step to the Apple directives. iPhones are for people that want something simple, that don't require much in the way of thinking to operate. It's like AOL was , 15 years ago. People are growing away from that "smart phone for dummies" mentality.

You can't be serious. Android has audio delay iOS doesn't so musical artists use iOS. Just because iOS is subjectively easier doesn't mean you have to be a stupid person to use it. Also so what if iOS is locked down? Seriously. That argument doesn't hold water at all.

Tell me again how many android devices can do anything useful with NFC? How many have twist to use camera? How many gesture controls actually work?

Bigger, higher resolution screens are not innovation. They're iterative improvements. Same with the inclusion of fitness trackers and always on voice. That's also ignoring that Google didn't seem to take an interest in serious voice control/interaction until apple bought siri and integrated it at the os level. Despite what you may believe, few would agree siri has been a failure considering it can do things that Google now still cannot.

(Also, knock knock isn't an innovation and LG didn't invent it...so there's that)

Lol. My bad. You're completely right, of course. I admit that the only innovation in the mobile device space was when Apple invented the smart phone in 2007. And it was true innovation, there had never been a mobile device that could fetch email or send text messages!

What do you mean "what if" iOS is locked down. It is. However, even in its gimped, locked state, there is nothing an iPhone can't do better than every Android device that will ever be invented in the future of forever!
