Odd observation from reddit

iPhone 4S was panned by Android users for:

  • A glass back
  • Non-removable battery
  • No expandable storage
  • An absence of LTE, despite "every big Android phone having it"
  • The exact same design as the previous version
  • Minor software improvements
The Nexus 4 has:
  • A glass back
  • Non-removable battery
  • No expandable storage
  • An absence of LTE, despite "every big Android phone having it"
  • The exact same design as the previous version
  • Minor software improvements
I know I'm going to be eaten alive for this, but what gives? I'm probably going to buy it ($300 off contract for dat display/processor!?), but I think there should be an open dialog on this. Last year, lacking LTE was laughable, but now I see posts about HSPA+ being "fast enough." iOS 6 was panned for honestly adding very little in the way of useful features, but 4.2 added Miracast (AirPlay catch up), toggles that are actually one more click away than TouchWiz's, and multiple users to tablets. Heck, they even made the navbar more useless on large tablets, IMHO. Any opinions, guys? I look forward to reading your input!
NOTE: I currently use a SGSII and N7 as my daily drivers. I'm not exactly a "fanboi," which I imagine some will call me; I'm someone who isn't afraid to jump platforms or neglect one's issues. My contract is up on Friday and I honestly don't know if I'll go to the Lumia 920, iPhone 5, or this. Though, deep down, I keep telling myself to see if the HTC Butterfly J is coming out soon! :)
