A while back I convinced my wife to move to Android and ditch her super old iPhone. I told her that once she got used to everything it would be better. But sadly, it's just not. Her assessment is still, "Nothing ever works on this damn phone" I have trouble defending these issues because I have them too, but I could rationalize them when they were only impacting me.
Just to name a few:
- Sometimes the radio loses signal entirely and cannot be restored without a reboot.
- Phone randomly shuts off or reboots.
- Email takes absurdly long to send (https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=1237
- Battery life and speed of the device is just random and it's impossible to attribute it to a single app/service.
I would be comfortable concluding that I have a bad phone, but this happens on three different Samsung Galaxy Nexus phones. And yes, they are over two years old but in my wife's case, she was replacing a 2007 iPhone.
