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.
