You're making a choice to be corralled into a carriers unwillingness to give a shit about your ability to upgrade the os on an aging phone when you buy a non nexus device. Sure if you don't like the nexus designs i guess you have to take that into consideration when purchasing yourself a new 3 year slavery term...
I hope windows phone burns as badly as win8, sad for nokia, but MS burnt it's bridges for any fucks to be given long ago. they should allow more browsers to be used with their phone if they want maps support, considering they only have 2% of the mobile market I wouldn't expect google to make supporting their crappy mobile browser a priority. The bully in the school yard crying foul cause they got a whiff of something that somewhat resembles their own medicine.
You don't have to get tied to a new agreement with your when you get a new phone. I've been through three different phones now and been out of contract for over four years. And an option is not options, that's singular as opposed to plural as Google only offers a single Nexus phone at a time.
