    Thought I would make a monthly thread asking what phones people are using seeing as how so many people switch often.

    I'll start out the thread. Still rocking the Nexus 4 as my main phone. Will probably get around to ordering the Nexus 5 one of these days as it looks like a fantastic upgrade. Although my only complaint with the Nexus 4 is the inconsistent battery life. Rarely can I get more than 3 hours of on screen time. Usually it's about 2 1/2 and that's without video or gaming. I'll likely upgrade to the Nexus 5 just for that but everything else on the N4 is just fine. Performance is still blazing fast.

    But anyway, yeah still the Nexus 4 for me.

    Because at this point I'm poor. The only reason I am even able to use this phone is because I can use it oh GoPhone. Then again, with that I don't really need much more. It can do texting and calls and a few other things.

    Haven't decided yet. I'm genuinely curious to see if HTC lives up to their claim of pushing out KitKat to unlocked/developer editions in 30 days. At a minimum I'm likely going to keep it at least that long to see if I stick with iPhone.

    For reference, looks like they're going for between $450 and $600 on eBay, not too bad (minus the fees, of course).

    I've considered just selling it anyways and getting a Nexus 5 if I switch back to Android. Problem is that while the Nexus 5 is damn nice looking, I still use quite a bit of local storage and 32GB would test my limits. The camera is the only think I really don't love about the One and so far the early reviews on the Nexus 5 camera aren't stellar.

    So basically, after all that...I don't really have a clue. :confused:;)

    Switched from a Galaxy S4 to a Note 3 and loving it. Night and day difference as far as touchwiz optimization goes.

    Today I might also pick up an iPhone 5 via trading the S4

    Have you thought about maybe selling your One dev and getting an S4 GPE?

    Switched from a Galaxy S4 to iPhone 5S yesterday.

    The GS4 replaced my iPhone 5 on August 1st so I spent 3 months with it, but just couldn't handle the bugginess and laggy performance any longer.
