I’m an Apple fan. I’ve got the third iPad, the new iMac, a Macbook Air, an older Macbook, and two years ago I didn’t consider buying anything other than the iPhone. Still, when it came time to choosing a phone, this time I decided to give the Nexus 4 a try.
I’ve now been using the Nexus 4 for a couple of weeks, and I love it. That was something of a surprise. I thought by switching from iPhone to Android I would be making a sacrifice in quality and usability. The main reason I switched to the Nexus 4 in the first place was because it seemed from the early reviews that it was good enough to keep me connected and happy while saving me lots of dollars. I didn’t expect I would end up liking it more than the iPhone.
I wanted to write this review for people like me – non-geeks who also happen to be heavy users of smartphones. For a long time, I couldn’t decide between the iPhone 5 and the Nexus 4; I wished there were a review that compared the two from a layman’s perspective – someone who didn’t care so much about LTE vs HSPA+, or which amazing camera lens was superior to a different sort of amazing lens, or whether we can choose from 1 million apps or 750,000 apps in the respective app stores. If you are still trying to choose between the iPhone 5 and the Nexus 4, I hope you find this useful.
