    Default Just switched back!

    After being over with android for quite some time I'm back on my iPhone 5 (32gb white) and it just feels RIGHT! Happy to be back, something about iOS and the hardware that just always gets me

    Well after using android on the HTC One to be exact and yeah that is the best experience you can get on android. The problem resides on some app quality , some really minor performance issues, subpar camera, battery life. The charging time was also an issue, I even purchased a higher capacity charger and was still 20% under the iPhone and it was twice the charging speed. Other issues I encountered was with no facetime and no way after you record a video to send it through mms, you have to change that on before recording, and that defeats the purpose of getting high quality video. Now I got my iPhone 5 white 32gb on order , and will be getting it on the 29 , hopefully earlier, cannot wait.

    What sucks is I loved my s4 but the fact Samsung bloated the sh** out of the phone really annoyed me. It lagged so bad it was pathetic. Htc is well known for mistakes so you can't trust them either.

    I had one. Didn't like the fact it was so easy to scratch on the sides. Was hard to grip for me. The speakers were AMAZING tho. Also was fond of sense 5, seemed really stripped down.

    +1 I used one at AT&T for 10 minutes and it was super smooth!! After owning my Galaxy Nexus and using my moms Captivate every now and then to help her I would never own another Samsung phone.

    The Nexus had stock android and the battery life was pretty much the worse thing about it but I couldn't imagine using a TouchWiz device as my daily driver bleh!!!

    I can't complain, my S3 is rock solid. But, due to app coding and general Android quirks, it's a bit like running Linux. I love it, but it has a few things you have to put up with.

    That's why I went back to iOS on my business line, it just works. No muss, no fuss.

    You should have waited for the S4 with pure Android and no Samsung bloatware in the Google Play Store on June 26th.
    Jailbreaking the iPhone is like dipping iOS in Android sauce - DELICIOUS!

    I am thinking about doing just that... Instead of buying a new iPad just get an Android tablet for messing around. How is the Tab experience? Is it a good option for just lazing around at home, browsing, reading on kindle, looking at Netflix etc..?

    As weird as that might sound to a lot of people that u were bored with android I know exactly what u mean lol. I'm loving my iPhone 5 will stick with this until the next generation (5s or 6).

    I see it like this adding widgets etc only takes you so far before you start to get annoyed by little things. Like dropped frames in the: launcher, browser, apps, etc. I love android but you shouldn't see those issues with 2 gigs of ram and a quad core processor. Over the years I've learned that flashing roms kernels etc while fun just isn't worth it; Especially when you take into account the stability issues you can have. android is great for those who want to be on the cutting edge; I would rather wait and let those features be polished before I get them ( look at Google wallet and isis both are going nowhere fast.)
