    Default Googles Nexus 4!

    Wow such a sick phone. Thinking about switching over from iPhone 4S to this phone now. It's sold out currently in the US. $299, no contract! So tempted to end my AT&T contract a year early!!

    Anybody using the phone already? I think I'm ready for Android!

    Looks like a nice phone.

    I have the Galaxy Nexus:

    It's a great phone and I'm sure any bugs it has (and it has a few) have been sorted for the Nexus 4.

    In all honesty, as an avid android user, I wouldn't tell an iphone user to make the switch over. It would have just give them a bad experience with android. That was until Jellybean (android OS 4.x) came out. 4.2 has finally came up to par, and is prime for more a lot more exciting things. The Nexus line (4, 7, 10) is fantastic. I'd like to think Google will start to do some really cool things w/ multi-device support.

    A Great thing about the Nexus line is that Google supports it themselves... Not the manufacturer. This means if your hardware is capable of an OS upgrades, you will continually get them, and you'll get them first.

    The price is definitely good if you want it off-contract and I also love that you get the latest Android versions as soon as they're available, but I really like the look of the Droid DNA: -



    Tech specs: -

    5" Super LCD3 display at 1080p resolution (440ppi)
    Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, quad-core at 1.5 GHz
    2 GB of RAM
    16 GB of storage
    Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4+
    8 MP rear camera with ImageSense and a new "Sightseeing mode"
    2.1 MP F2.0 front-facing camera with auto portrait mode
    Beats Audio
    2.5V headset and speaker amplifier
    4G LTE

    That one's $200 on a contract with Verizon, so not as cheap, but I prefer the handset over the Nexus 4.

    Just got the Nexus 4! Planning to end my current contract early and switch to a prepaid no-contract carrier next week. This is going to cut my monthly bill in half. Stoked!

    How are you liking the hardware man? What's the build quality like compared to other phones you've owned?

    I'm 99% sold on a Nexus 4 whenever I get around to it.

    I hate my iPhone a bit more every time I use it.

    I am really surprised to hear that... Most people I talk to say they don't have problems with their iphones. "It just works" and "It's a whole different experience" :angel harps in background:.

    I haven't had a non-android phone for years. I was thinking of even switching to the iphone... Let me know what you guys think as recent converts.

    Just switched from an Android phone to Iphone 5 and I am enjoying the Iphone allot more. I think the problem with Android is the hardware can screw you over if you pick the wrong model. If I was going to go back to Android I would only pick one of these Nexus phones.
