I've never been to big of a fan of the iPhone, idk it just never appealed to me. So i went with android and i loved it and i still do but, when the iPhone 5 was announced I think it was finally time to jump ship and give it a try. The current android phones that Verizon offers didn't really feel like they are that much better than my nexus, and windows phone does look nice but there is very little support for the device 3rd party and in the dev community, so that leaves me with one device. The device's looks is what mostly got me. Just picked up the phone yesterday and its pretty damn good. Everything flows quickly and smoothly, not one bit of lag. I thought that the size was going to be a problem, i have a samsung galaxy nexus and that has a huge screen, but actually i find the size good for my hands. I'm really digging the iPhone 5, its awesome! I plan on leaving it stock and not hacking it, which will be a first for me haha.
