    Hey I'm fairly new here. I've been posting in the icon sub forum for a bit now, but I figured I'd introduce myself.

    I'm a Mac user, who's been on the iPhone since the 3G though I did have a stint with Android (Nexus One & Droid X). I decided to go with the Icon over the Note 3 because the hardware specs while almost identical looked a tad better. The Nokia reputation was superior to Samsung's and I thought the core apps like email, explorer and office would be a better fit for me.

    Thanks all, I will say this forum has a nice feel to it and the members are largely helpful and friendly. I, like many of you have been to sites that sometimes are less helpful and a bit more caustic.

    The UI for windows is better, the large screen. I'm liking the email apps better. It may sound weird, but the button placement on the icon just works. So natural, I instantly go to the side, makes so much sense :) The start button, seems to work better not being physical and I like the back button.

    As for the iPhone, I miss iMessage, because I could text from my phone or my computer - a real plus. Games seem to take less of a hit on the battery for the iPhone then the Icon.

    Welcome to the forums!

    It's nice to see a fellow iOS/Android convert!

    I probably worded my OP a bit awkwardly. I was mostly an IOS user, who had a brief stint in Android. :)

    Nah, no problems. I just looked back on my post, and I just caught my own error; I meant to add iOS/Android opposed to simply "Android." I'm editing my post now. :)
