As many of you know, I am an Apple freak. From the computers, to the iPad, to the iPhone, to the iWhatever, I am a what you would call, “fanboy”. However, the does not presuppose that I am narrow minded in my views of other products or companies. In a nutshell, I appreciate Apple as light, and supports the shadows that form it.
With my love of the iPhone 4s, being well known, I felt to would be fun to broaden my horizons in the phone world. After all, who am I to say the iPhone is the way to go if I have never walked in another man’s shoes? So with that I saw my opportunity to hop over to the other side with the recent release of the Nexus 4, an Android phone from Google. I picked up a couple and decided that my travels over the next couple months would be documented with them and I could form an overall impression of where they stand in likes of Apple, especially when it comes to cameras. Along with the phones, I also grabbed the Nexus 7 tablet with the idea of testing how it travels for shoots compared to the iPad.
This is not a defection from a company but rather an inquisition to clear my mind on what it is I respect about Apple, and what I will like on the Nexus 4.
PS: A little tidbit on the Nexus so far…. after 20 minutes, I have discovered that this thing is an HD monster.
