    Default I feel like coming back to the iPhone

    I don't know what it is. My Nexus 4 is fluid and I use most apps I used on my iPhone 4S and its an awesome phone I just feel like coming back and I've had the phone for 2 months! Anyone got ANY sort of logic as to why?

    Could be anything. I also switch back and forth frequently. I just purchased the S4 and already switched back. No one can tell you why you decided to switch back except you. For me it was comfort with the iPhone and familiarity. I do like android phones. But I always end up switching back. Maybe its your so used to the way things operate on your iPhone that when you switch and things don't go as smooth you get frustrated. Guessing of course.

    Best of luck figuring it out.

    Have both. It's like me, if you lose the Nexus and go back to the iPhone in a couple months you'll want the Nexus again. You like enough about both operating systems that it's near impossible to make a decision and be happy about it. I had my iPhone 4, a Blackberry Bold 9930 and HTC Rezound at the same time until I figured out which one I wanted to use. If it wasn't for the quality of the iPhones and their color representation I probably wouldn't have ever picked one. I still want an Android device and I want a Z10 and the Nokia Lumia 928 because I still haven't played with a Windows phone and I love tech that much. I think I'll get to a point where I always have one phone of each OS to okay with and keep one as my daily driver. What it comes down to though is finding the OS that bothers you the least and has the most compelling features that you like and only you can make that decision. End of story, threads like this will make you want to go back to the iPhone but before you ever get around to picking one up you'll be second guessing the idea of leaving the Nexus again. So just do what you need to do to figure out which one you really want to use.

    Perhaps the more polished apps, smoothness of the UI, better battery life, not having to constantly tweak settings or changing your home screen everyday trying to find the perfect setup. LOL those were my reasons.

    I guess I'll just have to have both. iOS just feels more fluid due to the animations and such im so conflicted.

    Not for me. I love Android but I'm happier with my iPhone because of those things I mentioned.

    Maybe it's the form factor of the iPhone that you long for.

    I got my Mom a Droid Razr M for her Bday - I set it up for her, and thought that if I had to go Android (gun pointed at my head), that would be the phone I would get. Nice size. Very similar to the iPhone.

    Seriously? You started this thread with the following post:

    I don't know what it is. My Nexus 4 is fluid and I use most apps I used on my iPhone 4S and its an awesome phone I just feel like coming back and I've had the phone for 2 months! Anyone got ANY sort of logic as to why?


    Now you call the arguably legitimate reasons given by a Swarlos "troll reasons"? Well, hopefully you will come to understand why you are feeling conflicted, but until that time, try your best to continue enjoying the device you are currently using.

    I would like you to tell us why? I was thinking of going with Android, but I started playing around with a friends Optimus and I remembered why Android though really cool and awesome OS is not for me.

    I gave android a good solid 1.5 years of usage while switching in and out of iOS iPhones. Now I'm back with my iPhone (iPhone 5) and there's nothing android or anyone else can do to get me to go with them. As long as apple keeps its fluid and reliable OS they will have me as a customer and I will always keep going back. Just got my 5 back and added a new 15" retina display MacBook Pro to my apple collection lol I love it!

    On another note, is labeling any opinion you disagree with as "troll comments/opinions/reasons/etc" a thing, now? This isn't the first time I've seen this, and it's annoying. Is 'troll' the new Godwin's law?

    What is this? Are people just starting threads with random, flicker thoughts that they have in the middle of a random day? What's next? People making threads about the point in the day when they felt they needed to pee? Maybe a poo here and there? Oh...and maybe the moment during the day they felt they needed a shower?

    You have over a thousand posts else where on the web amongst other device forums...and this is what we get within your first few on iMore?

    The Facebook/twitter effect. The need to share our every thought. But this is an Apple related forum, so itīs is ok.. There are technical sections in the forum for deeper topics.

    Wow, no need for the hostility. The smoothness thing is false I have an Android phone I think I know how well it performs. I also have no desire to tweak or change to get the "perfect setup" not my problem if he feels like he has to mess around with everything on his Android device.

    Each user is independent in their own choices.... What works for user A, will not work for user B.... Etc....

    IMO What most consumers are put into is a over load stage where they have to much to choose from... or better yet, one good thing they wish their device had on another device. It's called competition, and it's competition in your own mind that will always have people thinking... You and you only need to decide on what works best for you.

    If you get something that other people you know have and use everyday, and they suggest you get the same thing... Does it work out? Will it work out.. Who knows. But don't feel like you are ever strapped down to using something in your life for someone else's personal approval. If that were the case then technology would fail.

    I donīt mean it in bad way though, I have started threads with things that were on my mind. If anyone doesnīt fancy the post, they are free to not open it. I still find your situation interesting though... If only you can put into words what exactly you like about the iPhone that has you missing it. I find it rather intriguing.
