Default Thinking of swapping to a Nexus 4

Hi all.
I'm currently using an HTC One X, but I've never been truly happy with it.
I've been reading great things about the Nexus 4.
Is it as good as everyone is saying it is?? I don't wanna make the change and regret it...
What's your opinions??
Many thanks.

What do you dislike about the HTC One X? There are many great things about the Nexus 4 that I couldn't give up now that I have it. One of them being the IPS display. Let me know some of your gripes for the One X.

Yea the screen is awesome it looks like what's on screen is popping out. I'm guessing its like that because the isp screen has fewer layers then other screens. If I were you I would get the phone its fast lots of ram(2gigs) and you will be getting android os updates up front no waiting for it.

If you were coming from an earlier phone I'd say it's a no-brainer, but the N4 is in the same league as the One-X and SGS3. While it's got plenty to like about it, I don't know how much of an upgrade it would be.

I also have a One X for work. I guess if you rooted the One X and went stock you wouldn't see much difference.

Personally I don't have time for that so I prefer the Nexus for stock Android, updates and I especially like the on-screen buttons.

Both screens are great and an example of best on the market LCD. The Nexus 4 is slightly better built (my One X has the spongy screen issue) in my opinion.

Both are great devices but N4 wins for me.

What is it about the One X that you don't like? Sense? Battery life? Delayed updates? Storage? Both are very good phones, but both have advantages over the other. For example, if you're craving a buttery smooth UI, the Nexus wins hands down. If you love using your phone as a camera, I think the One X probably has the advantage.
