Anyone purchasing a GS4 or HTC One would probably find much better reception, battery life and smoothness in comparison to the GNex.
Glad your happy with the Iphone5. In the end your happiness as a consumer is all that matters in the iOS vs Android debate.
price has nothing to do with it. You compared the on contract price of the GNex (299) to a full retail price of a newer phone (649)
The GS4 nor the HTCone didn't even exist in October of last year when i purchased the I5. Not to mention the HTCone still not being available on VZW. I was not going to spend money on another Sammy phone so that meant the SGS3 was not an option either.
