    It's a phone, a tool. Do you buy designer hammers?

    Having said that I have considered a Nexus and may get one at some point, but not because it makes me a member of some exclusive little club. That attitude, if anything, puts me off buying one.

    Not a great analogy. What type of hammer, Rubber? Sledge? Claw...... Try buying a hammer that does all of those.

    I'd list the things my Android does, other than make a phone call occasionally, but don't have the time. It may be called a phone but that is probably 5% of why I own it.

    If you were going to buy a chisel, would you buy the cheapest one Wickes makes, or spend a little extra to get the job done properly and buy a black & decker?

    Buying a named product isn't always about it being 'designer' (although I have to say, I think with Apple products it is a lot of the time), it's about getting the best quality product that will do the best job within your price range.

    My issue was more with the mention that someone liked the fact that not everyone owns one, since that way it's an exclusive club. The analogy was aimed at that, not aimed to criticise the phone itself.
