    Default Need some advice on which device...

    I recently gave up my iPhone 4S 32GB. It was a great device. I decided to switch to Android because I became bored with iOS. I've seen several articles about this lately, it's the same interface from 5 years ago. Very little has changed, as far as interface.

    I picked up the HTC One X. Also, not a bad device, as long as you don't rely on WiFi. The "death grip" on this phone affects WiFi from 100% signal, to nothing, just holding the phone. Now, I'm waiting for the Galaxy S III. Sort of...

    I'd love to get your opinions on what you would do if you were me.
    I'm bored with iOS
    I like ICS
    I like the SD card and ability to use phone as a flash drive
    I miss a lot of my apps (Carcassonne, Hero Academy, Ascension, Nightfall, etc.)
    I have an iPad, it's just not as convenient for quick async game play.

    I'm torn. Some of these apps may make it to Android. I'm such a techie person that I like the customization, widgets, etc that Android can supply. And I like the Apps that the App Store can supply.

    Your opinions are appreciated,
    XC

    So you're "bored" with iOS... grass is always greener on the other side of the fence...

    No problem. It happens.
    It was a great device.
    It still is..

    There are others who also find iOS boring and you're right, very little has changed in regard to the user interface. Still, the iPhone sells like hot cakes so the user interface is not an issue to a majority, in my opinion, but I understand your viewpoint.

    I picked up the HTC One X.
    Nice!
    Also, not a bad device, as long as you don't rely on WiFi. The "death grip" on this phone affects WiFi from 100% signal, to nothing, just holding the phone.
    Now that sucks!

    What do you mean "sort of...". Either you are or you aren't.

    From My interpretation of your post, your heart is clearly with an Android device so go for it. There is nothing wrong with switching from an iPhone to an Android device and vice versa and you don't have to explain yourself to anyone here at iMore. It is YOUR money and YOUR choice. Take care and enjoy the rest of your day.

    @JustMe'D: you have the best responses to everyone. Your demeanor is awesome. I love that you treat everyone with respect and are genuinely polite and kind to all people on here. It's refreshing. I don't like how some people use the Internet to belittle others just because they can. So thank you.

    @OP: I think you should check out the SGS3. I've heard of those issues with the One X, and that would be a deal breaker for me. I love both platforms, and am actually considering going back to Android for an SGS3 for some of those reasons that you state. I'm slightly bored with my 4S and like to tinker. But it will be REALLY hard to give up such a great functioning device. Good luck out there and just make sure whatever you get is what YOU want. Not what we, or anyone else, tells you to get.
