What do people here think of Nexus 4?
No clue. I haven't even seen one.
Tom macwave:... that's one of them Android things isn't it? )
sorry Jeff i don't know what it is LOL
It's the new Google Samsung phone, it looks like it's getting some good reviews
It'll be a great android phone for sure. It'll get updates WAY before samsungs do and so, given how fast android updates, it'll be a great choice at a great price.
The question as ever is, which ecosystem to buy into. Apple, Microsoft or Google.
All now have phones and tablets. All now have a dropbox style cloud storage and all will do pretty much what the others do.
So the question nowadays is which one do you like best?
We have them all at work because we provide support for them and my personal order in order of fave first is apple, windows... then a long way... Android. Windows phone 8 is JUST out and its reallllllly nice. Feels newer than apple and for people with kids, they have a great "kids corner" facility. You swipe to the right and then the phone is locked into kids mode where you can give them the phone to play with and they cant change any settings or order anything. All they can do is play the games you've allowed etc.
Windows phone also has the best maps, the best front screen with live tiles and the lock screen has even been updated. It feels very swish and professional.
Apple just works (well other than the maps you could argue ) and it's the one I end up coming back to all the time.
Android... well I used to like it and I still recommend it to people who like more options and not to be tied down but I don't like the way it's gone really.
BUT end of the day, they'll all do the same things now and unless there's an absolute must have app which is only on one phone, people should go and see which one they prefer.
Chris is really happy because he's getting jellybean on his s2
yeah I think the s2 was a bit of a classic really. Just the right size, powerful, easy to hold, gets the updates.
