The idea of getting back into an unlocked and unbranded device is always appealing to me but has been cost prohibit until now. Last week a great chance came when a forumite friend sold his for a fabulous price I promptly got it. It arrived on a Friday, together with an OEM extended battery and a case. He had also included a micro SIM adapter which was very helpful since I have misplaced mine somewhere. The device was in mint condition btw, thanks . I promptly started using it and through the weekend, all the reason I hated Android and all the reason I liked Android, kept fighting in my head, giving me a headache. LOL. Eventually Sunday night the GNex lost to my Lumia, the two or three apps that I missed were not enough for me to go back to Android. I had read rave reviews of how smooth and fast the GNex was with Jellybean (which this device had), and was really looking forward to it. I found it to be marginally smoother than my Vivid with ICS and not any faster. Hands down my Lumia is way more smooth and polished, the data speeds were lower as well and I am not in an LTE area so the lack of LTE on the GNEX was not a factor. I had expected that the phone part of my Nokia would be much superior than the Samsung's and it was, I didn't want to give it up, so I decided to talk my husband into trying the GNex for a week giving up his beloved 6+ year old Nokia (another hand me down). I have to admit, he honestly tried very hard to get used to it but for someone who uses the phone for mostly phone calls (oh wow, there still are people like this? ), the Gnex not only did not offer any advantage but on the contrary making or receiving a phone call took way more steps than it does on the 6131. He also sounded a lot less clear on the GNex than on his "Old Faithful". To make a long story short, I re sold the GNex, I am far too spoilt by the fluid and stylish OS of the Windows Phone and the reception, call quality, battery life of the Nokia to go back to an Android. Looking forward to WP and Nokia's next contribution. Just wanted to share.
