    Although I will say this, I am very tempted to pick up a HTC One for the time being and make it my new daily.

    Yes, I'm pretty bored with current devices (iPad Mini + iPhone5) as all my previous devices were either jailbroken (Apple) or rooted (Android). So not being able to currently jailbreak both of my devices/toys... can make the devices a bit boring to use. Patiently waiting for iOS 7 to come out, so I can at least have something "new" to tinker with.. and then hopefully, a jailbreak will come out for 7.

    Oh, I'm right there with ya on the jailbreak for iOS 7. It's gonna be a long wait, though.

    It's too bad iOS 7 is only available to devs until the Fall (or if you look for alternate means you can do that too). It really is a nice refresh. I love all the features especially Airdrop. The GF and I use it all the time.

    This is my exact situation. My mini had become a glorified ereader since I took the jailbreak off

    Maybe its just me but I don't play with the ui of my devices much. As a rule of thumb I only tend to be in apps e.g. browser, Facebook etc - the less I have to see of an interface the better... As long as said apps run and don't lag, it doesn't matter what device I pick up, if it works then crack on.

    I guess this sums up what im trying to say pretty nicely (replace mac/pc with iOS/android) xkcd: Mac/PC

    I can see what people are saying about iOS being stale don't get me wrong, it hasn't changed much in 6 years to look at, but at its very basic it's only really there to get you from 1 app to the next. Could it look prettier? Sure! Does it really need to? Probably not

    Obviously I realise things like the control centre are completely new (and arguably should have been in from day 1), but I wouldn't say them being absent from iOS 6 is causing me any boredom (maybe some minor annoyance going into settings etc)

    Ive been swapping between Android, windows Phone and iOS over the last few months but always come back to iOS, currently running an Iphone 5 64GB
    Little things i love about the Iphone are the physical sound toggle switch on the side, which no other phone provides, its just so handy,also the way iOS multitasks, even with 1GB ram compared to Androids 2GB, you can have more frozen in the background and when switching between the apps just seem to switch so much smoother, I love the Android freedom to browse files and be able to drag and drop from the PC and use as a hard drive, also the way you can customise everything, but as an overall experience I find iOS to be quicker and faster for my needs.

    I still don't understand how a person can be bored with the iPhone. It is a multimedia powerhouse. I can watch movies, read books, browse the web, listen to music and podcasts, play awesome games, social networking, and visit this nice forum. There are too many things you can do with this device to be bored.

    Bumping this thread 1 year later as a new launch approaches.

    My HTC One(M7) became sluggish after the 4.4 update. It's to the point that I almost want to throw it against the wall sometimes. Gave my iP5 to my brother back in March.

    Need a new phone and when I saw the HTC M8, I almost jumped on board. Hopefully 48 hours from now I'll be able to reserve the next iPhone.

    If I'm not overly 'wowed' by it. I think I'll give HTC M8 Windows P8 a shot.

    Just got a new MacBook Air 13 and iPad Mini w/ Retina. There's a part of my that doesn't want to be completely invested in one 'brand' but if Yosemite and iOS 8 do all that they say I maybe be an All-Apple Man for the next 12 months.(I switch phones every year).

    I thought I was getting bored with some features, until I sent it in to get the battery replaced & used a Droid Razr for literally 5 days & I couldn't wait to get back to it.

    Thanks! I got lucky and scored the MPA from a Best Buy employee here in NYC that was buying them on her ee discount and selling for a small profit on Craigslist.

    Hmmm... Well, the Rzr isn't the gold standard for Android, but I get what you mean...
