Ahh I see. I would just pop the SIM in the Nexus and move on if I were you. I would hate to carry two devices, even if they were both good phones.

If it were that simple I would, but unfortunately it's more of a hassle than carrying them both.

Yes that's my problem aswell... many android phones (many NOT all) are miles away from the iPhone quality. I was fighting against this argument when I had an S3 but when I got the 5s I had to admit that it was a huge difference. Also the iPhone 5s accu lasts very very long for its capacy and it loads much faster. My personal problem with the m8 ist the useless black box ... if it wasnt there i would have bought it already.
Main Device: NEXUS 7 (2013) with:
  1. ROM: CleanROM 2.0
  2. Kernel: Stock
  3. Icons: NOX
  4. Launcher: Nova Launcher Prime

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S III with:
  • ROM: Temasek's V6
  • Kernel: Temasek Kernel
  • Icons: Stock
  • Launcher: Stock as hell

Soon: LG G2 blame me, i bought an iPhone 5s...

If you're interested in a screenbricked Nexus 4, send me a PM.

The apps don't really load faster though. It has been debunked already. What it does is it loads a cached screenshot of the app and then once the app is loaded it takes over. That's why when you open an app you can't interact with it instantly even though it's already opened. My iPhone only last longer cause I barely touch it outside of calls, emails and texts.

I don't know why youre talking about that tho it's good to know. The only problem with the iPhone is the touchscreen (which has bad responsibility when I was new to it i had to tap many times on it:/).

Oh you said it loads much faster but in reality we don't know how fast it loads due to it's fake app load up.

I would quit my job if they made me carry an iPhone around.

Well....not really, ok really! Ok maybe not.
