I had a galaxy Nexus before and liked it a lot but decided to trade it for the iPhone 5 because I liked the display, the os was smoother and music integration throughout Apple devices is really great. Then ios7 came out and ruined almost everything I liked about iOS. The only improvement was the pull up menu that had a bunch of shortcuts, which are actually easier to use on Android with widgets. Anyway, I accidentally cracked my iPhone screen and replacing the glass cost around $150 so I decided not to do it and just spend $350 on the Nexus, which looks like an amazing phone with an amazing display. Also, kitkat has made improvements in all of the areas that I find important. The os is so smooth on this device, I actually think it's the smoothest phone on the market now and it just feels more substantial when I compare it to competitors. I can't wait to get it!
