I used android since '08 and I've went from my first Android phone, the Samsung Moment with its then-fastest CPU on the market which was 800 MHz, to the Nexus One, to HTC Sensation to Verizon GNex to Nexus 4. It feels very good in the hand and the quality of materials is impeccable. Not since the Sensation has a device been a pleasure to hold. Hardware-wise, the Nexus 4 blows all those phones into oblivion. Its processor is also very power efficient and its 2 gigs of RAM helps it fly with no issues.
