Galaxy Nexus |OT|

So the choice is between a high res screen (Nexus) or a good camera (s2)? I don't know why Google would de emphasize camera when it's always at the top of what consumers want and the rival has made it a point of pride for a while now.

The screen is going to be ridiculously awesome at least, but unless there are surprises, it'll be two straight disappointing conferences. Three in a row next week when Nokia unveils an n9 with Windows phone as their flagship for this year.
Which.... ironically, I'm still rooting that the Nokia delivers, but who knows.... I stilll don't trust those leaked speaks.

You're forgetting the Moto announcement that starts in 30 mins...

its a galaxy s2 based phone, i dont see why it would have a different camera then whats on the galaxy s2
 
That razr looks like shite, I just saw a picture of the Samsung nexus galaxy primus Maximus and it does indeed look like what the iPhone 5 was supposed to look like according to top men. Its a bit fat at the bottom but I like it.

Isn't there a S II HD coming out with the same resolution as the Prime?

Just how I like my women.

I guess the RAZR is too cutting edge, even for this forum.
I'm more disappointed that you're doing a thread for the moto/verizon event, but not for the more important BlackBerry DevCon event. Seriously, dude. You dropped the ball on this one.
 
Just woke up. Thanks for posting everyone! I'm reading the thread now, will add all your contributions in a bit.

Sorry the thread title wasn't good enough for you, brotkasten. :( Maybe next year.

There's not enough metro in the title.

If the screen is any bigger than 3.5" (optimal size) I will be massively disappointed. The size issue is a very real problem. Proof for the skeptics:

What kind of dumbass actually uses his phone one handed like that? I don't even use my iPhone one handed like that. The main fingers go on the back of the device as support whilst the thumb is airborne and can click away.







Anyway, do we have confirmed PAL specs yet?
 
I'm actually incredibly excited to move up to a bigger phone. You can reach. A phone doesn't just sit in your hand motionless, you're constantly sliding your hand around it. You can totally reach.

Like you cup your hand and the phone tilts sideways a little bit.
 
Former android user for a few years, current iOS user. If I ever use an android phone again it will only be a google (nexus) phone. Nothing pissed me off more then waiting months and months for updates while other sets were getting them, and nexus getting it day 1

Should have rooted. Hacker community does what manufacturersdon't.

He clearly doesn't know to use his main finger on the yellow side and his other finger on
the orange side, then turn it. Then spin the middle side topwise. Topwise.
 
Man, after look at the RAZR, the Nexus better not be Verizon exclusive. It would be kinda stupid to release 2 super high end phones the same time.

It might be subsidized exclusive for some time. But hopefully the unlocked model can work on all USA carriers, including Sprint. I'm not sure if Sprint allows unlocked phones in their network.

Except that then Verizon would have two of the latest and greatest Android devices out there and could probably attract some new customers.

nope
 
I guess? but it's still overkill. I dunno I'm not going to get the phone subsidized anyways so whatever. Reports are the the unlocked one works on T-Mobile 3g right?

Ask me about the GAF Notebook
I just hope all of the gingerbread devices get the update. That is all.

PS: My best friend would probably faint if Google/Logitech finally updated his revue he bought at launch. LOL

When the international version cleared the FCC, it had 3G bands for T-Mo and Att. So yes.

Nope.

I don't get this. Verizon has the largest and fastest network in the US, and it has never had a Nexus device. Plus, every other carrier has the GS2, which is a frigging awesome device as well.

Edit: Well, yeah it would suck for people on other carriers, but the fact that VZW has been lacking a Nexus while every other carrier has had one up to this point has blown for us. Now the tables are turned!
