I'm deciding whether or not to purchase a new galaxy nexus from Google. I've used an iPhone before and an android phone before (Droid X which I traded in for the iPhone). Originally when I tried the android phone I disliked it because it was rather unintuitive and laggy on android 2.1 software. the iPhone was good and as such owning an iOS product has accumulated me material in Apple's ecosystem. when the 4S came out I was disappointed, but I really believed that no other phone out there could compare to an iPhone even when Apple speed bump updated it. I bought the new iPhone 4S and was happy for the 1st day or so, then realized it wasn't as fast as I thought it would be, Siri wasn't as amazing as I 1st thought, and iOS 5 was good but not groundbreaking. now I'm caught between keeping the 4S or getting the new galaxy nexus. I found the pros and cons of each very difficult to weigh so I'm asking for your opinions. I know this is an Apple fan site but I believe your opinions be more valuable because you can more accurately weigh how much the IOS ecosystem is worth compared to hardware advancements. I own approximately $50 worth of apps for my iPhone, but the whole ecosystem thing plays in with iCloud and the fluid syncing to my Mac. with android 4.0 I don't know how smooth the OS is but since it's now coming to Verizon I have the chance to get a pure Google device. when I was initially viewing other phones, the only android phone I even considered buying would be a pure nexus phone, but the only phone available at the time was the old nexus S. am I foolish to consider buying the new galaxy nexus with its beautiful screen? Should I stick with my phone now and wait for the iPhone 5 to hopefully bring a more significant update? I should add that I've rather big hands so size does not matter. Also I understand that the galaxy nexus is actually in possession of the slower processor and graphics chip than the iPhone 4S, but as many people pointed out specs don't matter. Has anyone specifically played with both android and IOS to determine if the significant new features in the galaxy nexus such as the full HD screen, NFC technology, and android ice cream sandwich is worth the move for me to android. Please be impartial as possible as either party gone over the pros and cons and am now asking for your opinions since I found myself to be nearly impossible to choose between 2 good things. thanks for all your help and I know ultimately it's my decision but I'd really like your opinions.
