It's been a pretty long ass time since I've posted here! April '10 it appears with the Nexus One. I just could NOT get the feel for it... it was laggy, crashy and overall didn't "feel" as good as the iPhone of that time. I've been a pretty loyal iPhone user all the way from 3G!
On release, I've purchased the iPhone 5S 32gb and have been using it without problem. But I've come to a realization... how fricken boring iOS is. Seriously, it hasn't changed much at all since the original iPhone's release! I've been able to withstand the previous generation iPhones due to their available jailbreaks... but more and more time goes by and I realize that I NEED that customization back.
The jailbreak provided me with just enough ability to change some things about the iPhone that I wasn't too happy about and gave me some power. Now that it's not here, I can't stand it. Stock iOS with no way to change it... very saddening indeed. After coming to this conclusion, I started looking into what Android has to offer (after almost 4 years). All I have to say is WOW Android has come a long way!
I've researched the top competitors currently and have come to the conclusion that GN3 is my best selection as of yet. Beefier specs coupled with what looks to be an amazing camera has really won me over! I have not purchased the Note 3 yet as I am still making iPhone payments... Also, T-Mobile has my phone locked to the carrier
. My next step will be to pay the phone off and unlock it OR attempt to sell it as is locked to T-Mobile.
Depending on the way things go, I may keep the iPhone for a little bit longer and hold out for the next release of the Note (or whatever other Android tops out the GN3).
This will be officially my 4th jump to Android! Hopefully there will be no turning back!
TLDR; Due to boredom, I am leaving Apple behind (despite my recent purchase of the 5S) and jumping to the GN3 or better!
