Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

My personal experience with JB is that it actually slowed down my phone's interface compared to its performance with ICS, and this is on a Nexus S, a "pure Google experience" phone. I could probably go back to ICS but it's too much trouble for the short time I'll still be using this device.

The only phone I've used to date that is as fast and fluid as an iPhone is a Windows Phone (HTC Arrive). And I only stopped using it because for the time being, I'm dependent on tethering and TeamViewer while on the go to support a few clients.

I'm working to simplify things in that regard, and I hope that by the time I'm up for renewal this summer I'll be free to choose between a new WP8 phone, a BB10 phone, an iPhone (though I'm doubtful about that one), or an Android phone (also doubtful, though if I choose that it would have to be the Galaxy Note 2, replacing both my phone and aging Nook Color).

Nexus S had an actual degradation of performance under JB. That is why there will be no upgrade to 4.2 for Nexus S.
