quote: Faster hardware?? maybe at one point but not anymore
quote: Higher quality 4" screen while the rest of the industry moved to 4.6-5.0. And please spare me the "all you need is 4" argument cause it's getting old.
quote: Better build quality? IDK, iphone always feel pretty solid but there's plenty of choices now with solid build. The HTC One i played with actually feels much better than the iphone, has better screen, camera and overall a more exciting product.
quote: better apps? Almost all decent apps are cross platforms. A few unique apps for both platforms but the only time you can say apps is better is when you compare to W8 or Blackberry.
quote: Timely updates? So does google Nexus
quote: Does the iphone5 beat the LG Nexus 4 at anything?
quote: Oh, so its OK for you to call me liar, but not in reverse?
quote: your true motives have been outed.
quote: I can see it, dont call me a liar over it, I can see it.
quote: Once the GS4 drops it will be beaten. Of course, it remains to be seen how practical performance is and how well the GPU handles its resolution. Videos of the GS4 are all choppy so far (hard to know if it is the hardware or Android itself, we'll see).
quote: An sRGB calibrated IPS screen looks much better than an oversaturated AMOLED any day, especially when the best selling high end Android handset uses a cheap pentile matrix. Size is personal preference but 5" phones are too big for single handed operation. If you want a big screen then by all means get one, but display quality in most Android devices is substandard.
quote: The HTC One and DNA both have excellent screens and build quality, I really like them both. Calibration isn't as good as the iPhone's but its good enough, and it blows away Samsung's displays/build quality. No argument there.
quote: The best apps I use are platform exclusive. Going to another platform would mean a downgrade in quality or losing it altogether. Even most mainstream cross-platform apps are better on iOS (mainstream stuff like Flipboard or Yelp), and the biggest Android app news is usually when something ancient like Instapaper or Flipboard finally gets an Android port. Even some of Google's iOS apps are better than their Android counterparts (maps, voice search, gmail). And the best GMail client isn't by Google, same with the best Youtube client. They are called Mailbox and Jasmine, and they are both iOS only.
quote: Certainly, and I wish it was like that for all Android devices. Unfortunately the Nexus makes up a single-digit percentage point of all Android devices sold, hardly a relevant data point.
quote: Speed, battery life, LTE, display quality (Anandtech slammed the Nexus 4 display), applications, build quality, etc.
quote: you're right. This is not android's fault, this is the carriers faults. Apple somehow got around that probably because it's not open. But I only care as what i experience as the consumer so iphone wins here.
quote: Did you even read the article? I just glanced at it again to be sure but he praised the Nexus 4. The only thing he "slammed" the Nexus 4 for is the screen not being calibrated and a little on battery life.
