    I had an iPhone 4s and other than the 20MB file d/l only over wifi, i loved it.

    Well here we are 2 weeks after selling it and buying another Android phone, and now i wish I had it back.

    I hate making decisions like that only to regret doing it!

    So i guess now i can either sell this Nexus and pay full retail for another iphone OR just hold out until this fall for the newest iPhone....... hmmmmmm

    I do like the larger screen on this phone though.

    Decisions, decisions.

    Ok sorry for rambling, im at work and bored.

    For me, I have tried them all. I have tried them all with the exception of the Windows Phone. The iPhone can't be beat in my book.

    I would say do whats best for you financially at the moment. If you miss the iPhone to the point of wanting it right now, I say sell the Android and get your 4S back, however, if you think you can make it till the new one comes out later this year, then wait.

    Side Note: Dont feel bad, its taken me 5 years to realize what I've been missing out on the iPhone after years of BlackBerries which I loved and Androids which I use to love but then started to despise.

    LOL...

    i can say I was an avid android user/lover. I sell for sprint and loved talking about and selling the androids. I always said iphones suck and they were terrible. One day i decided to look at the phone with an open mind. About two weeks ago i decided to upgrade to the 4s and keep my photon as a backup. After 4 days i got rid of my photon lol. I am not going back to android. I love this phone. I jailbroke it but took it back b/c it works so well without being jailbroke no need in messing IMO

    I'm in the same-ish boat. I swapped out my Nexus for my iP4S. I love them both, and I'm forced to sell one of them, as I've got both for sale/trade (it's kind of a "whichever one goes first" thing to force my hand). I honestly think you can't go wrong with either one. I know I'm going to miss the Nexus if I sell it and I know I'm going to miss the iPhone if I sell it. It's a vicious cycle.

    You commented in my for sale thread, btw.

    IMO....for those who (like me) switch over from Android and love their iPhone but are having a hard time fully cutting the Android umbilical chord.......jailbreak. I was hesitant, mostly because I just didn't want to ruin what makes the iPhone great(smoothness, dependability), but I finally did it, and I'm so glad. I didn't go nuts changing my phone, but I did get to change a few minor things that were making me miss my Android. I can't say I have experienced any downgrade in performance......and I finally have Android closure.

    my main issue is the software. The only android that comes from google, which uses samsungs hardware, which is pretty ****ty. Apple has good hardware and the software comes straight from apple. Instead with every other android the software goes from google>samsung(moto, htc etc)>sprint(carrier)>phone. That leaves plenty of room for stuff to get messed up. I also just wanted a phone that will work and i dont have to do battery pulls or force close stuff. I did jailbreak, it was unstable b/c of it and was glitching and stuff(im sure due to me playing with anything and everything i could). I took it back to stock and havent looked back.

    Well here are the things that I wrote down:

    Pro Nexus: screen size, turn by turn navigation, a lot more free apps, widgets, LTE

    Pro iPhone: battery life, overall device size, iTunes implementation, endless accessories at any store you go into.

    So really they are pretty equal right now..... now if I can hold off for the next iPhone the larger screen and 4G LTE issue should be taken care of so I think the iPhone will win overall for me.

    Oh the ONE THING that absolutely turned me off of iPhone, the requirement of having to d/l 20MB or larger files over wifi only.

    I missed my iPhone too when I went with Android for a short period of time. I don't know what it is but something about iOS always keeps me coming back.

    I agree that having Google create the OS and then letting manufacturers mess with it to their liking and then letting carriers put their own garbage on the device is the biggest downfall of Android. How members of the Android community can play this off and say that this isn't "fragmentation" is beyond me. That, to me, by definition is fragmentation.

    I will, however, say one thing: ICS is leaps and bounds better than anything Android put out before. As someone who has extensively used a Nexus and a 4S, pure ICS is as close to flawless as I've seen on an Android device. It looks good and is easy to use. Much more so than any other Android out of the box.

    You couldn't pay me to use an Android phone with that bloat garbage all over it.

    The screen size and ability to download larger files over cellular network is what drew me the most to Nexus. Also the new Android 4.0 looked (and is) leaps and bounds better then previous versions.

    I think what I need to do is just put in some OT at work to fund the purchase of a iPhone 4S so that I can keep each one.....

    I had an HTC Sensation and absolutely loved the screen. But the "jittery-ness" of the OS drove me crazy sometime.

    I bought an iPhone 4S...jailbroke it. And now life is great!!!

    I wholeheartedly agree with this. I played with ICS and I loved it. Really really well done. It is the other parts of the Nexus that scares me off. Reports of poor reception, dropped calls, and no data connection abound on android central. The volume is also problematic and so is the battery life.

    I had none of those problems. And I was in a fringe 4g area. But I definitely understand your concerns. I think they are real issues for some people.
