Friday 15th November 2013: 8.07pm. I've been using my new Nexus 5 for a week now whenever I can, so I suppose it's time for a mini-review. Bear in mind I'm coming from a Galaxy Nexus, while Megan has a Nexus 4. I won't mention the changes in Android 4.4 over 4.3 which are mostly UI changes except for adding printing support (which BTW is very cool, our Epson printer has Google Cloud Print support and printing to it from any phone or Chromebook is now absolutely seamless).
Thursday 12th July 2012: 2.57pm. Just spent half an hour playing with my new +Android 4.1. In fairness, it's a reasonable update from Android 4.0 - in particular, Google have finally - and at long last - matched the +iPhone for flashy, fadey UI gimmicks, and the UI is now fast enough you can't usually outpace it with your tapping. It now feels very like an iPhone in use, except that everything is darkly themed whereas the iPhone is brightly themed.
Thursday 12th July 2012: 1.38pm. So, yesterday +Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OTA update comes out for my +Galaxy Nexus so at about 11pm I go to apply it. An assert barfs that my build.prop has been changed, so I hand edit it to make it look like stock. It still barfs (it's not like build.prop having a single character out should fail an OTA update). I try manually downloading the update in case it got corrupted.
