Anyone contemplating jumping ship and getting a 5s? I owned every iPhone before getting bored with iOS and going to the Nexus. iOS 7 looks great and the new phone with better camera and the fingerprint reader are making me ponder possibilities. Anyone else?

Not really.


Not saying that the 5s isn't a nice phone, because it is, but it doesn't add anything I really need that I don't have already with my Nexus 4. If it was about the price of the Nexus 4 I might even consider getting one as a second phone (even though I don't dig iOS that much) but there's no way I'm spending $699 when I have a perfectly good phone already.


The Nexus 4 is not a high end phone by today's standards but it's more than good enough. I don't feel I'm missing anything not going with the latest flagship devices.

    Your order is meaningless. My chaos is significant.

Just ask yourself, do you need the new additions?

I would wait for nexus 5 instead.


Also you're really thinking about going from a 300 $ phone to a 700-800+ $ phone ?
