Roughly six weeks ago I switched my iPhone5 with iOS6 on it for a spanking brand-new Nexus4. I was getting way too bored with the iOS of yesterday and neither Blackberry10 nor Windows Phone have proven themselves to be realistic alternatives. After doing some research for a low end price, high end specs Android device I found only praise for the Nexus4. What finally got me was the promise of not having to deal with any bloatware at all due to getting the “Vanilla Android” as Google has envisioned it. I also thought that getting intimate user knowledge of Android would help me professionally. Finally my company recently switched to Google Apps, so I had lots of my stuff already within Googles services anyway.
First days were a blast: Customizing home screens, fiddling with launchers, being awed by the share dialog, unzipping zips, playing Pokemon with a Game Boy emulator, surfing .onion sites, having my Bitcoin wallet with me and last, but not least, playing Ingress.
Now, why am I considering switching back?
