As my iPhone 4S became painfully slow after updating to iOS 7 I didn't want to pay another fortune to Apple just to get a modern OS running smoothly. Also, there are some things really annoying me more and more on iOS, some of the worst being not to have an option to set a default browser and email client and not having global sharing/send-to-app options for third party apps. Also, I really like using GMail a lot and the performance of the iOS app is just a major PITA.
So, I got myself a new Nexus 5 and here are my first impressions as well as a little overview of the apps I quite liked so far.
I didn't expect to buy a device that's able to compete with the iPhone camera wise, so my expectations weren't too high. Still, in low light conditions I'm a bit underwhelmed by the quality it produces (a lot of noise). Also, I still haven't found the perfect camera replacement app suited for my needs. I think I'll get used to it and fiddle my way around. As with most cameras when light conditions are good image quality seems satisfying.
