    Why not just keep the Nexus 7 so that you can dabble with the latest and greatest Android OS?

    Figured I had to go all is. Or something.

    Anyway, I really don't think I'm 100 per entry decided either way anyway. I think I need to get some more feedback and think on it more. Not sure if me wanting the iPhone 5s is yet again tech lust.

    I think another problem is I'm too enamored with the apple mythos . by that I mean that since they were so good for so long getting, it's hard for me to tell if their still the best for me.

    I also have this weird all or nothing thing. That if I have a ipad, then I must have a iPhone, a mac, and a ipad mini. I can't mix and match ecosystems. Maybe that's because it's potentialy less expensive and it's easier to just stick with one ecosystem, and I'm stressing which ecosyestem I want to back.

    Really, it would be a lot easier DE using if either is or Android just completely sucked, lol. But there both good.

    I agree with this. I have the same issue. A few months ago I ad a Nexus 7 and a Nexus 4. Now I have an iPad 4 and an iPhone 5. I have to choose one or the other.

    So I'm going to sound like a broken record, but I'm committing to the decision of getting the iPhone 5s when I can on oct 3rd (assuming its out by then.)

    I really do think this is the best move for me (regardless of what I might flip flip to tomorrow, lol)

    For a variety of reasons:

    Since I'm going through a carrier (AT&T) , I absolutely refuse to play roulette with them on wether or not Whatever android phone I might get receives the latest OS updates. So, I'm going to be sidestepping all that BS and get a phone that the carriers can't muck with. In fact, this is one of the bigger selling points for me. I'm the type of person that likes to keep software up to date for a variety of reasons. Example being security improvements.
    And honestly, the rest of the reasons (reliability, build quality, apple customer support, batterylife, etc.) is all stuff you guys know all too well and I'll probaly just be preaching to the choir, so I won't go into detail on those.

    Suffice to say, I can't wait for the 5S

    So, I'm probably just going to hang onto the nexus 7 at least until more towards the end of the month when I see what iPhone 5s looks like,and I might even hang onto it. Don't know

    All u know us I relisted and canceled the nexus 7 about 6 times now,which probably will lead to fees later. I'm doing my typical putting the cart before the gorse routine and jumping the gun,and I need to take a step back,a deep breath,and look at the picture for a bit longer.

    I'm still kinda leaning toward the 5S, but I'll see when its closer to my upgrade date (Oct 3rd)

    As BlackBerry Guy suggested above, a Nexus 7 and iPhone 5s is not a bad combo. You get the latest and greatest iDevice and iOS, plus you can still feed the Android itch. I believe the Nexus is Root and Custom ROM friendly, so you could flash and tweak to hearts content on the 7; and still have a solid and stable phone in the 5S - and stay current with and "plugged into" both ecosystems.

    I am with you. I think that I'm going to be sticking with my iPhone for a while. I am really enjoying my iPhone 5 too much to switch now.

    You are confusing Droids with Android. Droid is a Verizon branded line of android phones. Android is the operating system.

    I'm still really back and forth. I gotta pick one

    I keep hearing people switching to android, but ios still seems good to me on my ipad. But I think other people's opinions are swaying me back and forth.

    Why not be your own person and stick with whichever platform best meets your needs. If you like iOS and that works better for you, that is all that matters.

    Dude, you created this thread on August 24th. It is now September 14th. WTH? ...Pick one already! If not, let me help you out...Go and purchase the Space gray, 64 GB iPhone 5S. It will be professional-looking, fast, powerful, have plenty of storage, and will be well-supported for several years...

    I was considering the white and silver 5S because whenever I think of a iPhone, I always think of white.

    Originally I was going to sell my ipad 4 to help pay the initial AT&T next cost of a android phone or iphone and put towards some bills. But if I go with the iPhone 5S I might as well keep the ipad 4. Then maybe sell the nexus 7 2013 I have.

    Sell the nexus 7. I wouldn't sell my iPad. That is one of my all time favorite devices.

    You know, thinking about it when I was trying to decide on either the moto x, HTCONE, or S4, I realized that the only device that seems to be with little compromises for me is the iPhone. Like, moto x has the software I like and batterylife, but the camera is meh and so is the screen. The HTC one has a great screen, but it's batterylife is kinda meh and it's software isn't what I want (stock android), and the S4 has the camera and accessories support, but has awful software and feels clunky.

    iPhone has the solid software, great camera, great batterylife, will get software updates right when they hit, has great accessory support, and a great screen.

    The only caveats are no widgets and notifications aren't as good. And I can learn to deal with that I think

    I was using my mom's iPhone 5 for a bit last night, and have to admit it was strange going back to that smaller screen. But I liked how I finally was using a phone that fit in my hand, ha ha.

    Is that the same Nexus you've sold already?

    Yep, just last month (8/29) you said..
    So, my nexus 7 just sold for my buy now price if 257 dollars. It was a 32gb model, so it was a small hit. But it's certainly not bad. More than I would have received on gazelle.com or something.
    I remember at the time wondering why you didn't just return it for a refund...but you seemed happy and all. . On 8/7 you said this:
    I just can't figure it out. I don't know if it means I can't think for myself or what?

    For example, I really wanted to try out the nexus 7, so I traded in m iPad mini to amazon to pay for the nexus 7. However, now I'm wondering if that was a mistake

    Unfortunately the person who bought it was using the buyers account illegally. So the sale didn't go through. I still have the nexus 7. In fact, I've put it and taken it off on eBay so much because I've kept changing my mind. And I've done the same with my iPad because I thought selling it on eBay could help pay for a new phone. I've taken that on and off of eBay a lot too. I simply can't make up my mind.

    With that said, though, I'm honestly more than likely going to go with the 5S because of reasons I've did used in other threads. Like stability, battery, camera, and app ecosyestem. And timely updates to software.

    I just hope at will have 32gb models on Oct 3rd. Apparently there supply's are being limited.

    What you do in that case is put it as "Buy it now" only, and set the price high enough so that you're happy if it sells, even if you wanted to keep it.

    Really, this dumb choice is consuming me. The thing with its is, it just seems to work for me. I do that to micro manage it's battery, worry about it crashing, worry about it getting updates, and so on. Maybe I don't need to baby my Android devices, but I find that the battery life on my nexus 4 isn't lasting me through the day. And that I do get random reboots on it every now and then.

    Really, I'm just looking for something I do think need to worry about, be a use at this point I my life I'm trying to eliminate stress. And the last thing I need to stress about is my phone, the thing that's supposed to make my life easier.

    But I keep hearing people of podcasts and websites how they are personally switching to Android for this or that reason. And it's making me double guess my self on everything.
