One of my favorite all-time comments on PA:

"What do you think will be the first non-Nexus phone to get JB?"
"VZW Galaxy Nexus"

Wow VERY SEXY. I am very sure Verizon will have this phone. Verizon & LG have had a very good relationship. Also VERIZON was the first with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus so I have a STRONG feeling the same will happen.

Just like Nokia went with AT&T for their Lumia 920 (worst mistake EVER) I believe Verizon will counter with the LG Optimus G Nexus.

If the HTC 5" phone is a Nexus phone, this phone won't be worth a look imo. I don't know about anyone else, but I need way more than 16GB storage on my phone. Hope the HTC phone has more than 16GB, or is expandable via microSD cards.

LG needs a hit phone bad. I do hope this does well as more choices = more win for us consumers.

No one is questioning why 4.2 already? Jelly Bean doesn't even have a large deployment and they're working on the K-release?

So, it takes time to get updates,why complain about progress on the Android OS updates.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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. :)

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.
