Has anyone come to the N5 from an iPhone 5S?

Tip us?

I came from a 4s to the Nexus 4 and haven't looked back, and probably won't unless Google does something terrible with Android and perhaps the next rev of Nexus.

The last person I knew with an iPhone and not a Nexus5, was trying to put their life back together!

She wouldn't get into flashing Roms and so on but I would set it up like my n5 is so she could customize away, and show her some.of the screens on the home screen thread because the possibilities are endless.

Even slim isn't my 1st choice my wife is actually making "her own" build. She wants a "girl version"Whatever the F that means. Serious though it's a big change for most to switch os to os.Be supportive

Though I loved hacking and available hacks and mods and the devs on Cydia, I'd never go iOS over android os. I have compared the two, and I can't say I'd stay if I was making this transition.

Right, but android is a win for UI, for easy "noob"-friendly modding, and BB is always good for business. IOS is simply a popularity ploy and does nothing for me professionally or personally. I can hack and mod android to become the work I don't want to do. Its easy for anyone. Plain and simple.

Nexus 5 is more for like the Android geeks who love to flash roms and kernals and isn't afraid of anything

If you like the user experience with an iPhone I would recommend you the HTC One
its got the same build has the iPhone 5s and has amazing sound and a amazing microphone

Sound wise it literally blows the iPhone 5S and Nexus 5

I have a iPhone 5s and a Nexus 5 and the HTC One and a Galaxy Note 2 (I got alot of phones)

I love the HTC one and the Note 2 and Nexus 5

iPhone isn't just my thing, if i do go to like a party of whatever I carry both the HTC and iPhone for picture quality.
Devices: Nexus 5 (Sold) 1X
Nexus 5
HTC One

Agreed.lots of logic between these two posts.
My note 2 is a mistake.I for it while had galaxy nexus,hoping to make me switch from nexus.I didn't work a d my note two became a spare back up for my Gnexus..I waited the 2 years for it to come.couldn't be happier. I really think apple owners have issues with "keeping up with friend's and there iphones or I pads....Me I want to not just own my device.Freely from carriers and OEM crap.
