The Nexus 4 is much cheaper than the rest at ($299). At its price point and its specs, it's probably the best value for your money.

For the amount of money you would need to shell out for an iPhone 5 isn't justified considering the basic features and functions you're looking for. You'll be paying more for the iPhone than the other flagship phones from other manufacturers.

All of the flagship phones will all do everything very well, just choose the one with the OS you like best. Do yourself a favour and go to the store and play around with the phones. Each OS has its strengths and weakness, as does each phone and maker.

So what you're saying is you don't give a rats ass if it takes forever for your phone to process something. As long as it's from Apple it's gold?


I guess he only looks at the screen and the apps. Doesn't look at features, functions, receptions or anything else. As long as it has the angry bird app and a nice solid screen :picard:

My LG Neon broke in half today. I thought they were indestructible. I've had it for 3 years though I guess it's time for a new one. Does anybody know any good cheap phones?

Absolutely!

when I buy a vehicle, I don't care if or what kind of engine and wheels it has. As long as it has a steering wheel and AC im set! Those things are so intuitive.

Not nearly as intuitive as that strawman. :lol:

LG? indestructible? LMAO!
LG is probably the last brand that should be described as indestructible. Heck, A lot of people are a bit hesitant to buy the Nexus 4 at such a bargain price because of the fact that it is made by LG.

Nexus 4 comes for $300. It uses top of the line specs but has no 4g.

YOU own the phone NOT the carrier.

$50 more and you get an extra 16 gigs (worth it in my opinion) and honestly 3g is fast still.

'4G' is a bit of a misnomer spewed out by Apple/Rogers/etc... The Nexus 4 can reach download speeds of up to 42 mbps on HSPA+ networks (which I believe Rogers has), but it does not have LTE, which can reach theoretical download speeds of 75 mbps or more.

Get the Nexus 4 for sure if you're getting a phone off contract, it's ridiculously cheap for a high end phone. Not having LTE won't be an issue, everyone I know with an LTE phone turns it off since it drains battery so quickly. Nexus phones will last you a long time since they'll stay up to date sooner and longer than any other phone and there's a huge online community for Nexus phones.

author kindly asks what phone to get

Iphone 5 owners say they love it.

Non iphone5 lovers say iphone5 sucks.

Pouria has done nothing but spammed this thread with hate.

Pouria, do you "own" an iphone5? probably not? Then why are you hating on it so much? Flat out true story, I know much more s3 owners then iphone5 owners, its like 4 to 1 ratio! However the people I konw that owns it, loves it to death. They are bragging about it, they don't show it off, n

I looooooooove my Blackberry 9900. My brother had a 9700 for a long time and recently switched to the HTC One X. Most of my friends have various iPhones.

In my opinion, BBs are hands down the best for messaging/emailing, I don't think many can argue against that. For multimedia purposes, Android or Apple will do the trick due to the larger screen. Good luck getting enough data to accommodate those wants, though, especially if you're activating a new plan as there is little incentive for providers to give you a good deal.

For your needs it really seems to come down to an iPhone or any higher tier Android one. Check out your friends' and see which one suits you better. Asking CDC will only get you biased replies!


exactly what he said. You wouldn't come here for date advise? why would you do it for phones? Look at pouria. He's been spamming apple hate non stop.

So iPhone 5 is the only phone with the ability to have good screen, good battery life, good video quality, good sound, internet that loads with no problems and basic apps that work well? I guess no phone on the market is capable of that like HTC 8X, HTC one X, Samsung S3, LG Nexus 4, Motorola Razr MAAX, Sony ion, Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung ATIV S etc. So all these other phones are junk, right? What a hardcore Apple fan boy you are.


stop putting words in my mouth pouria, don't being a fandroid and grow up. I never said it had good battery life, i just referenced it vs the s3 the video quality is based on their mad reviews on their overall retina display, which already looks 1080 hd, I never mentioned it had good sound, the internet loading was based on its speed tests vs the note 2 and the iphone5 beat them in the speed test too, the research was also some person reviewing the speed test over his pc plugged into the interent. so calm down man. I told him to stay away from the S3 cause I have good hanful of my friends actually "complaining" about the phone

The real question is why are you so infatuated with iPhone which is just an inanimate object, a material? What is the real reason behind your love affair with Apple?
