What Platform did you use before Android on your Nexus 5

We're curious how many people switched over from other platforms to get a Nexus 5 and how many were already Android users upgrading from another Android phone.  Please vote in our poll and let us hear from you in the comments if you switched over from a different platform to Android and what your reasons were.

I used to be on iOS with an iPhone 4. I had jailbroken it because I was fed up with Apple restricting you from so much! I knew that my next phone would be an Android but I wasn't sure which.

When I heard all the rumors and the supposed price/specs of the Nexus 5 I was sold! Bought it and I haven't missed my iPhone in the slightest!

I was a true Apple fanboy. iPhones 3G, 4, two 4S's, 5 and a 5s. I feel liberated  :D

I've been on Androids ever since I departed from my feature phones (actually I'm still using one of those just for calls - excellent standby battery power).

So I came from a humble Kyocera Hydro to an Optimus F7, to my Nexus 5. All are in use (except the Hydro I just keep as back up now).

After I got my Hydro I didn't think I could use any large(r) phone but after I got the F7 I was hooked and I'm thrilled with my 2 larger screen phones. Obviously more in love with my Nexus. The smoothness of this is just unparalleled in my universe. :D

Hi there!

I had an IPhone4, although I loved it for three years, I wanted a larger screen and more customisation options with less restriction. Reviews and tech columnists indicated that Android's user experience had really come on and the Nexus 5 has so much power. Cutting edge power, no contract because of the price and pure google experience attracted me. Only had the phone for two days but really loving it!  :)

I had an iPhone 4 and was disappointed that I did not make the switch to Android sooner. I fulfilled my contract w/previous carrier and started to shop around! That is how I discovered the Nexus 5 and ended up here.I am love love loving this device!

I too have been an Android user since my last feature phone. I was a Sony Ericsson fanboy having owned the SE k750i, k800i and then the C905. Getting into Android was purely coincidental because I then got a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10i and been an Android user ever since. My next Android device was a Samsung Galaxy S2, then the Nexus 4 and now the Nexus 5. Can't see that changing for some time.

Coming from mostly Motorola phones; Droid 1, Droid 2 Global and Droid RAZR Maxx. Had a one month laps of sanity and had an iPhone 3 which I sold to my sister cause I couldn't handle the lockdown. T-Mobile bought my contract and Nexus 5 was the only phone I've been wanting. I wasn't disappointed, Motorola are great phones but I think Nexus will be my brand for the foreseeable future.

I was already an Android user on another Nexus device, just not one with a cellular modem (as it were) so I chose other.

My first post  ;) Have been using Android phones for a few years,and modded most of them with various Roms and tweaks,but just bought my Nexus 5 yesterday,having dropped my HTC One M7 and broke the screen.Although in repair,I have no idea why I simply did not get the Nexus 5 last year.Ok I have only had it twenty four hours and the enthusiasm etc,blah blah,blah,but it really is that good.Vanilla Android,no bloatware (?),and the 4.95" screen is the "sweet spot" for me.Will I root and Rom my new phone.No way.Well,not till Google release another phone anyway.Previously owned other platform devices,but always came back to Android.

What's up guys, first post. Coming from a rooted, ROM'ed Samsung Galaxy S3 with a bum battery and broken screen. I was going to try to stick it out until my ATT contract was up in February, but I was tired of getting tiny glass splinters in my thumbs, and T-Mobile made me an offer I couldn't refuse, haha. Loving the N5 though! I was about ready to go back to iPhone, but this handset along with KitKat is restoring my faith in android.
