Google "With an update to the Google Search application, Google Now is available on iOS. Compatible with both the iPhone and iPad, the update brings almost all of Google's information cards across from Android. The look and feel of the app is virtually identical on both platforms, a testament to Google's newfound ability to make well-designed apps on iOS. The main differences between Android and iOS are few, mainly in that iOS can display fewer different kinds of cards." Google's iOS applications look better than anything Apple itself has pushed out over the years.

As Google keeps pushing out more of their apps to iOS, my reasons for sticking with Android continue to shrink. If iOS had tighter Google Voice integration, quick toggle widgets, and allowed users to change default apps, the iPhone6 might be a viable option. Maybe in iOS 7 ;)

As it is, I am getting tired of Google's contempt for Nexus owners. At least with iOS, I can have 32-64gb storage options, along with LTE, without having to have my phone violated by the vendors and carriers.

Dude bra, long as you are consuming their services, why should they care about the lost profits of handset vendors?

As a Nexus user, I also think your rhetoric about being treated like crud to be a little inane. My Nexus 4 is a glorious beast for the money. I would not/clearly don't pay the extra $300 for a handset with LTE support.

Ya, the 16gb Nexus 4 is fine for $350. But I would pay the extra $$ for LTE, 32gb of storage, a removable battery, and not having to wait 4 months for an official charging dock. The point is, if you want a real Android phone with these features and no bloatware, there are no options available. Want a 7" tablet running stock with HDMI out and a quad core CPU? Tough shit ;)
