I'd wait for the official release too but ....I don't have to. My Nexus has ICS on it and it's pretty effin sweet I must admit.

Now if only I can get used to typing on a touch screen. I am brutal.

Typing is difficult?

Yea I'd wait for OTA because it means not having to re-install the OS from fresh ever time it needs upgrading or having to wait much longer for rooted versions of updates.

As an Ex-BB user I'm used to feeling the letters, but, typing isn't necessarily difficult - I'm just not very good at it. I used to be able to type full messages on my BB without looking at the screen/keyboard. The autocorrect is quite good though as is the predictive text which comes up just above the area you're typing in and then you can just click the word as it comes up.

I find the on-screen keyboard pretty difficult sometimes as well. You never get the feeling while typing on a touch phone, and you have no idea what are you typing while on a physical keyboard you know what you are touching without even looking but still Touchscreens Rock! :D

I use an iPhone and BB, I have to say the BB keyboard and typing is so much better than iPhone. I can write lengthy emails no problem on the BB, on the iPhone I try to keep them as short as possible.

why not learn something from Apple and keep things simple? Android just seems to be way too complicated when it comes to devices and upgrades.

I know people would disagree but "Nexus 5" has been the best nexus so far in terms of price vs performance ratio.

Devil-X3423d ago

Good reminder that nexus phones weren't always equally cheap as the nexus 4 and nexus 5, so nexus 6 pricing is still pretty much in line with today's flagships such as Xperia Z3 or HTC M8.
