Actually, people say the Galaxy Nexus isn't really a true Nexus since it made its way to Verizon... And that takes away the actual point of a Nexus. That is one of the main points for buying a Nexus, to be a Nexus, which means fast updates and no bloatware, which the Verizon Nexus has a complete lack of those qualities.

the Galaxy Nexus is indeed a true nexus. The GSM version. If you want direct updates, you need GSM.. period.. at least until Google muscles VZW and sprint into direct update compliance the way Apple has. If you have VZW you should expect super slow updates. Its always been part of that ecosystem.

THE 4X HD was no competitor to the S3. The international SGS3 wiped the floor with everything. The 4X is a near mirror of the US SGS3... with not as nice of a screen, thicker, fatter, worse camera, worse battery, and worse software and support. That doesnt sound like much of a competition.

The G they are showing here is their answer to the SGS3. Its definitely got some specs on it. Cant wait for the real world tests to see if it delivers.

The screen argument is debatable. I generally prefer S-LCD, just because sometimes my eyes hurt from the contrast of S-AMOLED. I can't look at the screen on my GS2 for more than 5 minutes without having discomfort in my eyes... But those 5 minutes are indeed glorious.

But when I compared it to displays like the S-LCD on the Amaze, and the S-LCD 2 on the One X, I enjoyed the S-LCD much better.

it is debatable.. between lcd2 and s-Amoled+. The amaze isnt amazing. the SGS2 beside the Amaze really makes it look.. bland.

Yes, the colors don't pop out as much, but that's kind of the point lol. My eyes are sensitive, so LCD seems pretty nice to me. SA+ burns my eyes, not even kidding lol. Even on the Amaze's display, it still looks very nice to me.

"it is debatable.. between lcd2 and s-Amoled+."

I don't think so, because if I starting counting cons and pros between OLED and LCD, LCD always wins. :)

what cons and pros?
AMoled has infinite contrast and pure blacks since the pixels turn off. Also has a much higher battery life with darker backgrounds. It does take a beating on displaying white though, but most of android is pretty dark. And there is an "inverted" option in the browser to make it white text on black background.

The saturation on Amoleds are through the roof. A lil minor tweaking can tone it down if its too much for the user.

LCD2 is darn pretty, no doubt. Its biggest advantage was RGB vs Pentile for small letters, but with the Note 2 and beyond, that advantage is gone.

The S-LCD2 looks more real than the S-Amoled . I always loved the dark black colours and contrast in Amoled . But when i kept both SGS3 and HTC one X together i just thought the colours in HTC one X looked real and live .

A question to American users: if it will cost 299$ with a 2 year contract, what could be the price of this phone without any contract? Thanks

About $600-650 if you're buying it from a carrier off contract, maybe $800+ if you're buying an unlocked global version.

Hmmm.....for some reason i still feel PureMotionHD+ beats this (at least in reflectance ratio and sensitivity)
