It's not my case, and that's why I disagree. But it's fine if you don't want to flash the phone. No problem with that.
If I buy a phone is because of the hardware on it and because I can modify the software to my preferences, and a Nexus allows you to do it the best, but there's other options out there, and a Nexus is not always the best option (although usually is).
Side development is the main reason for me to have android usually. Some people can be fine with stock, I'm usually not in any device. A nexus is usually the device with the highest amount of side development. In fact I barely debloat my phones as I find that software useful most of the time (as is the case in the note II).
There are many reasons to flash a device, one of them being get full control over the DAC, and not the only one.
I don't conceive the idea of buying an iPhone and not jailbreak it, and the same goes with android, but that is just my opinion.
Yup. This was my point too.
That said its tough to be the GE of the HTC One. I need LTE. Haha. And the headphone amp is quite a bit better than the Nexus 4 as long as beats is off tho sometimes it's good.
