My solution......I got my wife a Nexus too! It was time for her to get an upgrade and she picked a Nexus. She could have had any phone she wanted but she said the clean look of the screen and menus sold her (she didn't like all the bloatware...too confusing).
Anyway, is she going to root, apply custom themes or any of the other "geeky" stuff......nope. But she found Word Find in the app store and thinks the phone is fantastic.
No more discussions about spending time messing around...she's right in there with us (me and my sons).
Galaxy Nexus - One phone to rule them all!!
Girlfriend loves the Gnex I bought her She has no problem my phone tinkering... she usually benefits from it since I usually test new things before firing them up on her phone
My first smartphone was a Droid 1. Then I found the Nexus... Galaxy Nexus LTE unlocked & rooted...

I can totally relate, I play with my Nexus so much my husband is so sick of it. I have also try out the iphone but I just don't feel any excitement over it. My Nexus can offer so much more! I couldn't barely put it down, love it! I literally sleep with it. Anyway, thanks for sharing your funny story!

I just got my wife addicted to Angry Birds and Words with Friends. Now she sits and plays her games in the evening before bed and I spend my time on the forums and playing with my devices. She can't get angry when she is doing it too.
