I have an EVO LTE. Never had any desire to own an iphone. Rooted the phone, flashed a rom, runs like an absolute beast.

The customization of the android OS is great

re: Android is a Whopping 70% of the Smart Phone Market


I switched from iphone to the S3 because I was not driving 2hrs one way to get a third iphone in 2 weeks. I got a hold of a few lemons.

I wanted a bigger screen and to get away from my bad experience with the iphone and the shitty service I received at the apple store in BR.

My wife has a Note2, I now want that phone.

Serious question: How often are you in a really, heavily populated area like NYC, Dallas, etc.? That is where you will really see them.

I ordered my Nexus 4 on Monday, SOB still hasn't shipped.


I've had a Nexus 4 since it launched in Oct.

Best phone on the market. Not only spec wise but also price wise. Fully unlocked no contract for $300. A iphone 5 fully unlocked no contract is over $700 and doesn't have near the hardware this has sans LTE.

Add in the enormous developer community for Nexus devices (complete forks of Android releases into new entire ROMs) you have the bests overall phone on the market.

Only thing I wish i had was a larger screen. The 4.7 inch screen needs to be like 4.9 or 5 even. I do not understand how iphone users can be happy with the 3.5" screen of the 4s and the 4" screen of the 5. That is way too tiny

No, it is a GSM based phone. This means AT&T and TMobile. It is a pentaband phone too, which means it is fully compatible with all GSM networks.

I use it on Solavei which is a TMobile MVNO. $49 a month for unlimited talk unlimited text and unlimited data with the 1st 5 gigs at HSPDA speeds

I am really enjoying my WP8 Lumia 920. IPhone user for a few years. Got bored with it.

Can't speak to integration, but if I was looking for an iPhone alternative I'd think long and hard about the 920. That is a sweet phone and it absolutely flies.

Plus the hardware quality seems better than almost all Android phones, which is a huge selling point for me in Apple vs. Android.

That's because 70% of the population are poor/white trash/urbans

Frat stars/Sorostitutes pretty much have a corner on the iPhone market

sted by LSU CoyoteAndroid users are usually poor. More poor ppl in the world than well off. Another reason is that Apple does not offer an iPhone to china and south korea's largest service provider. They should have a phone available for them this summer.




You need to try harder

Verizon has very good service around my house so I won't be leaving them. Plus, I have an unlimited data plan. Don't want to lose that.

Really just need the best phone option on Verizon's network.
