Quick story: I thought it would be a good idea to pick up an AT&T HSPA+ nexus 7, even though my wifi version up and died one day after about a year. Well, the new Nexus is already driving me up the wall, it is almost useless. I am running the latest firmware, in fact I updated the thing right out of the box, noticed it eats a ton of battery, so much so, it is almost useless. I have unlocked the device's bootloader, loaded a custom rom on it, custom kernels and same result, even on wifi the thing eats battery, I can't seem to turn mobile data off. I got a poor signal, although I found I can connect to my AT&T microcell tower, it gives me a better signal. THe device went dead in about 9-10 hours of light use (twitter here and there, web browsing a bit on chrome and weather radar) over wifi. The device has drained sitting overnight, it has drained on airplane mode, etc... So, there is either a battery issue, or software in the latest update. So, I figured I am done messing with it. Fool me twice or more.... (I had a samsung galaxy nexus at one point, also terrible device). It is too late to get a refund on the thing, I am not even sure I want to try to claim warrantee because I would have to put the thing to stock, when I had to hack it to attempt to make it work, so I am thinking about moving to an ipad / iphone 5. My current smart phone is a galaxy note 2 (pretty good device, but has quirks of its own). I have a 16gb wifi ipad mini. Its okay, a little quirky and limited to what I am used to (being an android user) but the sucker holds a charge for a while. I did jailbreak it, but don't see much use for cydia, so. iOS 7 is starting to add features that I liked on my android devices, control center and multi tasking (a huge plus), making it more attractive. So, the way I see it, I got duped. I have started to think perhaps I have been making excuses for android. The tablet is pretty much a paperweight right now, I cannot expect it to be charged and ready to go when I am. Since I am paying for service on it (its added to my family plan) and I do not have a 2 year contract on it (good thing!) I wondered if I should just cut my losses and just get either a 4g ipad retina or 4g ipad mini. I suspect I would be able to pull the sim card from the nexus 7 and shove it in an ipad sim, with one caveat. I would need AT&T to swap out sim cards for me since the size is different (blasted non standard sim card sizes). I am sure they will do this, but if they do, will I be able to use 4g on the ipad? Or will I be stuck at the slower 3g / HSPA+ speeds? Or am I going to have to pay activation (yet again ) and change my plan?
