I know Eclipse Build 16 is around the corner. He released a trial version but the official build 16 should be close.

I love Eclipse because first of all its 100% sexy black. I hate the grays in Jelly Bean. Also it has great battery life & COMES with Trinity also out of the box. It's very smooth & very responsive.

Don't get me wrong AOKP is boss ESPECIALLY build 4. If I were you try Eclipse build 16 when it comes out.

For me Trinity Kernel works a little funky on MY GNex. For some reason it drains my battery. That is the only Kernel that gives me problems. I believe everyone that it's good Kernel it's just my OMAP 4 doesn't like it because all OMAP 4 are not created equal.

My OMAP 4 likes Franco & Faux's Kernels best. Popcorn & LeanKernel a very close second. Heck I might put it there with them. I run Franco's r276 Kernel with 512GPU @ 1.5GHz. I get GREAT response, sweet smoothness & very good battery. AGAIN for my GNex.

Dude some games and navigation apps are over 2gb all by themselves. So you would rather carry two devices rather than one large capacity one?

Talking about free space, maybe Google want us to use their content ecosystem and limiting onboard storage is how they seem to have decided to encourage users to do that? :(

Yeah, it's pretty much been confirmed that the reason Google is using less on-board storage is not only to lower the cost, but to adapt us into using their cloud services as well.

Try dealing with a rooted HTC Inspire 4G... It is listed as 4GB of internal memory, but in reality a little over 1GB is usable (obviously because of the OS). I am using a 32GB microSD card with it, with the musics on the microSD card being at least 8GB. Since it's rooted, I need to leave space for the ROM's and backups, where each backup of ROM's take up at least 1.35~2GB of space. I also have all of the apps that can be moved over onto the microSD card (e.g. couple of games) so that I can still have room to download apps, and a lot of the apps are still unable to be moved over to the microSD card. Right now, I think I only have a little over 1GB on my 32GB microSD card, and somewhere between 325 and 400MB of internal storage.... I really hate this lack of space, and can't wait to upgrade to a One X+, Galaxy Note II (might be a little too large for me for normal, daily use), LG Optimus G, and possibly the SGS3 (unless AT&T decides to get the 32GB and the 64GB version becomes available). I would love to have as much internal memory as possible since it quicker to load apps, music, and files in general, than trying to load them when the data is saved on the microSD card. The microSD card is a HC variant, but of class speed 4, so I understand that the extent of which the loading speeds are slow, may increase with a higher class speed microSDHC card. No matter what, I would need at least 32GB, if not 64GB with a microSD slot. I hate using an iPod or using an additional device just for music. I just don't like it when I can listen to music and multi-task on my "smartphone". I also need a battery with a really high and large capacity such as 3,300mAh for example, in the RAZR MAXX, but that's not the point of this argument. I understand your point, but a lot of use our phone for other purposes, a multimedia device, essentially.

I couldn't believe that I "had" 4GB of internal memory, but was only given 1+GB to actually use... I was disappointed, and was I more than glad to have that 32GB microSDHC card for my music and etc... The OS and the other data occupied so much of the space, that the phone was barely available to hold much apps on the internal memory. The HTC Inspire 4G is truely an entry Android Smartphone in my books. But when I got it, I was really excited and happy, having made a switch from a featurephone. I wanted the HTC One X+ to have a 2GB of RAM and a microSD slot... I might have to settle with the Galaxy Note II now... I'm going to be upgrading from a rooted HTC Inspire 4G, and I love Sense 3.0/3.5.

8/16GB on a phone and no MSD slot? Are you kidding me? Better be 32GB, btw I'd love to see a moto/htc/sony nexus.

I guess they are looking to attract more budget conscious buyers by lowering the memory and thus lowering the price. Will probably make up for it by offering some free online storage.

I was considering this phone until I read that as well. There's only so much 'cloud' services can give you, 8 GB is a joke and 16 GB isn't the best scenario by any means.

Fully on mark on that one. But I really doubt that part of the report, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus had alreay the versions of 16GB and 32GB.
And someone is going to use 2 GB of RAM with the best chip on the market and so little storage without a microSD to expand? I seriously doubt it.
Either it will have microSD (I don´t think so) or it will have more internal storage.

Memory is extremely cheap, that would be a lame excuse...

i have a feeling the other nexus phones will definitely destroy the Galaxy Nexus 2. Samsung usually succeeds in their software, but now... they have no edge except Exynos and Super AMOLED.

Doubt it. Samsung has something else that the others doe not have and that is "Galaxy" in the name. It will sell well, trust me.

Depends on the user. Camera guys will buy the Sony, music guys will buy the HTC, and people who love AMOLED will buy the Samsung. LG and Motorola, who knows?

Almost feels like Motorola has an easier time getting a footprint in China than they do with Europe. Maybe a Nexus is what they need.

And are you surpised after what they have just done with the RAZR I, selling it with the Intel Medfield chip in Europe instead of the S4 like the RAZR M in the USA.
You don´t get traction by cheating on your customers!
I was seriously thinking about buying the RAZR M, as I don´t like such a big phones and wanted a powerful one with a small form factor, now NO WAY!

In my case OLED based displays don't have value, I prefere LCD over OLED. So for me it is good, but yes, everyone is free to decide what is better for them. :)

In my country stores are full of Motorola RAZR and RAZR MAXX, but I also don't remember when last time I have seen someone using one of Motorola devices.

Doesn't matter if they have Galaxy. The only reason I bought a Galaxy was because it was a Nexus. I follow the Nexus. Now, I'll be given choices to choose from, and I'll pick whichever one has better hardware, since the software will be the same.

not in sales though. ahaha. that's proven. the galaxy is like the iPhone in Android's army - has a lot of blind followers

With good reason.. i like the galaxy and motorola's droid. Unless motorola comes up with a better nexus phone, i still think the galaxy has better specs
eg: larger storage and micro sd slot.
Although lg has better screens..i think.

We hear nothing about other Nexii so maybe this year it's LG turn to make the Nexus phone?

I think wireless charging is cool but expansion SD slot is more important.

I'd gladly take wireless charging....if the phone ships with the charging mat

Srsly? A nexus device that's similar with Optimus G? That sounds unlikely. It would clash with Optimus G itself. Why would LG want to do such thing if Optimus G is its game changer? And given the fact that Jelly Bean was just announced, do you think, another iteration of the android OS would be there? If ever this maybe true, jelly bean would be the OS it would go with. This rumor is too unrealistic, at least on my perspective.
