LG's phones aren't that great - not sure about the Nexus 4 either at this point yet. I know 2 people who got them and were disappointed with them within a few months. Not having OTA updates didn't help things either.

Funny because the iPhone has just as big a trouble shooting section in forums as Android phones...

This is all a Google conspiracy to destroy Apple and win the thermonuclear war.

Google will keep adding their apps and getting more and more iOS users dependent on Gmail, Gmaps, Drive, Gtranslate, Youtube... (but not G+) and at the end......


They will withdraw the apps from iTunes, and clear iOS users, and terminate support for them...

Then we'll see what phone and tablet they will buy...

This comparison is cool, but not fair.. lol when Apple Maps had time to develop and people are finding good information consistently (eventually, i hope.. for Apple's sake) THEN we can do another comparison maybe..
for now. Google Maps ftw

This is another knock against Apple maps. Google Maps has it, I dont know if it does for the iOS version tho.

It might be a smaller area than what Nokia does, dont really know. I just did it on my Maxx HD. 76MB of data, it gave a warning about area too large before I settled on what I did.


Its out of Labs now and a regular feature.

google map-takes you to destination,3D view of street and transit info.
Apple maps-sends you to the abyss,put landmarks in the wrong location and might charge you "IF" you get to your destination.

The major part of why people hated the iPhone is now irrelevant thanks to Google for solving this problem... It's now cool to have an iPhone again.

What if apple did this on purpose to force google to create an updated google maps in the first place?
