I'll definitely be buying my phones directly from Google from now on but I'm still just really annoyed at the limitations AT&T has put on this phone. From what I can tell no other carrier has made it this much of a problem to stick a custom ROM on this phone.
I realize there's still some customization you can do with the phone but from what I can tell so far if you root the phone the update service no longer functions and on top of that there's still all the garbage lumped in to the stock ROM that it apparently needs to function without experiencing strange issues.
I'm gonna get some *hi* for saying, what I'm about to say........ However...... I had the same feelings. I have owned android phones since they where invented!!!
The past 3 months I've been using a phone called an ..........IPhone 5S!!!!!!! I must say, I've never been so comfortable owning a phone, I'm not checking it constantly worrying if I have battery drain issues, not worrying about custom kernels, not worrying about what color I should use for my battery indicator. Etc...etc.....etc...
I know it's apple. But. It is a really good solid device, everything works when it has to, the camera and sound quality is amazing. I've just felt at ease using it.
Don't get me wrong, I still use my nexus 7 allot at home, that's where I get my android fix.
But, a device I rely on for important calls, emails, and using facetime to see my children when I'm working away, for me I'm very happy.
I don't work for apple if that's what your thinking!! Also this is my personal opinion. Whether your interested or not.😀
