After years and years of dealing with customers that come back in and ***** about not having the protection plan and the Factory Warranty being garbage. I will not go without it now.

I have broken my Galaxy Nexus ohhh 3-4 times now (Usually I am really careful) and through Best Buy have gotten it taken care of for only like $7 a month. So for the $168 I have spent on that plan I have a new charger, battery and my phone taken care of 3-4 times. I think that is a win.

A piece of technology not working? That never happens to anyone! Especially not Apple products (even though my iPhone is almost unusable and they won't replace it).

There needs to be a meme for that.

Friend's Nexus was behaving weirdly. Mailed it in to Google, got a new one back in about two weeks.

You're such an android fanboy Forenci.

Just when you have a good opinion in the Giants team forum you have to follow it up with a terrible opinion in the off topic forum.

Isn't there an Apple thread in this forum? It shouldn't take an Apple Genius to find their way to the correct forum to post in.



When you are ready to buy products for their usability and technical specifications as opposed to marketing you can come back to the grown ups table. Until then why not head over to the kiddie table with the hipsters and stay-at-home moms.

best buy is terrible they can suck a fat d, had the 2 year replacement warranty and brought in my 1500 camera for a simple dead pixel repair they sent it back completely broken and blames it on me. It took 3-4 months of arguing back and forth up until I threaten to get a lawyer involved to get a replacement and not actually a replacement I got a 2k camera in return since mine was out of date. If it would've just been handled the week that it happened maybe I wouldn't hate them so much.

yeah i'm not a fan of best buy either. I've never had a problem with factory warranties. I had an HP laptop a few years ago where the screen would randomly shut off (within the first year of buying it), I called hp and asked what I can do, they did some remote access to test a few things and then they said to send it in (this was after I bought a 2 year replacement plan from best buy) They sent me a box and a mailing label all for free. I sent it in, got it back two weeks later and it was fixed. Never had the problem again. they determined it was some sort flaw with the screen hinge mechanism that was causing the screen to go off. The best part? The worthless 2 year replacement plan that I bought from best buy would have taken 6 weeks to get my computer back.

I've also bought several phones from verizon and they will replace the phone if it is manufacturer defect within a year. Forenci's issue doesn't sound like it is due to abuse of the device, (such as yours, cain). So google SHOULD replace it. If they don't, escalate it to a supervisor.

Amazon for everything unless i find a killer deal somewhere else. Their customer service has quickly handled almost all my problems. 2 day prime shipping has ruined my expectaions about shipping times.

Best Buy is only if I want to test something I'm going to buy on amazon later. Amazon will help more if the item fails or I want to return it.

I buy things from Best Buy occasionally.


...after shopping around online and price matching. It's seriously not a bad place if you can get something you want for a fair price and get the hell out. **** waiting for shipping if you don't have to. Unfortunately, they tend not to have a ton of the stuff I buy.

Because you were looking for reasons to hate it from the moment you got it. Saying stuff like I wish I could hide the apple on the back plate, constantly acting so guilty that you bought an iPhone etc.

You're an Android fanboy. It's obvious. You make excuses for your Android products when they work like crap then turn around and rip on any Apple product you own if they don't work properly.

Instead of appreciating your products for what they are, you buy into the stereotypes that come with them and try to dissociate yourself from the ones you don't like. Stop being a fanboy and take the product for what it is.

My first smartphone was an iPhone. I've gone back and forth over the years just to "switch it up". I wouldn't mind a 5s but I'm not paying 600 bucks for a phone (I have a balling 30 dollar unlimited plan with T-Mobile). Neither suck but one isn't "clearly better than the other" either.

The only reason why I would ever go back to Android is for 1 of the following reasons:

1. The Nexus that comes out the same time as the 6 blows the 6 out of the water.

2. I leave Verizon and buy a phone full price. I can't pay 800 bucks for an iPhone. I love the iPhone, but at that price it's not worth it. I refuse.

That's pretty much it.

If I ever buy a phone full price that's probably what I'm gonna do.

My days on Verizon might not last much longer.

You're an Android fanboy. It's obvious. You make excuses for your Android products when they work like crap then turn around and rip on any Apple product you own if they don't work properly.

Instead of appreciating your products for what they are, you buy into the stereotypes that come with them and try to dissociate yourself from the ones you don't like. Stop being a fanboy and take the product for what it is.
Apple nut hugger passing judgment on others. Hilarious.

At least I like products that don't suck.

I just switched over to android after being a loyal Apple guy for the past 4 years. Opted to go for the Moto X...because of a couple of reasons.

Iphone 5s was 3-4 weeks wait. Even longer for the champagne phone I really wanted.

This caused me to do some more research into the available phones. I learned that 5s had a weak battery and wouldn't last through the whole day. This was reason #1 why I loved my iphone 4s. Charging it daily was not required.

Initial thoughts on my android are pretty good. The UI has came a long ways. Also getting a clean install of android as the first motorola phone that has went out since they were acquired by google was a nice touch.

Still don't have a clue how to do many advanced things on it...but a couple of pro's cons from my experience.


Android
The notification center is top notch. In 4 years using the iphone i maybe used the notification center once a month. I can see why...it was nowhere close to as useful as the android notification center. Never tried IOS7...but seems from what I read that androids gap got even bigger since I'm not the type of person that has a full schedule.

Iphone
Copy and Paste....not sure how android hasn't stolen the press and hold to copy/paste...but that was one of the biggest things I noticed moving from apple to android. Apple nailed this...droid copy/paste is a pain in comparison.

I have the droid maxx which is pretty much the same as the moto x, aside from the soft home back and multi task buttons, and I have no problem with copy/paste.

Copy paste has worked fine on every Android device I've owned, including the G1. Haven't tried the Moto X, but considering it's just vanilla Android, it should be the same.

Nexus 5 supposedly drops on the 14th. I was all in at first, but I'm starting to question if it's actually a good value for me. I use my phone all the time...which is part of the issue really. The Galaxy S2 with cyanogenmod is still getting the vast majority of what I actually use it for done at an acceptable rate. I sort of would like a handheld device that would work well with emulators(which the Nexus 5 certainly appears to have the power to do) and read books(which the screen size wouldn't be ideal for), but there appears to be better and cheaper options out there for that. I don't know. Gadget lust has been a powerful draw for me in the past, but I just have a hard time justifying $400 for texting and the internet in the bathroom.
