I agree, I think HTC is capable of putting out those updates within that time frame. But Verizon, I have no confidence in them.

No eN16HTMAR3 - two models for the US (16GB & 32GB), both work on GSM and CDMA (well, Sprint) networks. But what you say IS the normal for most phones.

As for the iPhone numbers: SunSpider is more a test of the speed of the browser software than the phone hardware. For all on-screen tests, having a lower resolution screen (iPhone) yields higher numbers. Overall the Apple A7 and Snapdragon 800 are fairly equal in performance. Possibly with a slight A7 advantage but that is expected given that it's half a year newer.

I love the specs and the price but I think I will pass until they release a Nexus device with expandable memory or 64GB. less than 32GB is just not enough for me sorry.

The Optimus G beat the Nexus 4 in almost every benchmark.
The G2 vs the Nexus 5 will be almost identical. Carrier Bloat is just that, taking up space. Carrier UI doesn't slow down or create lag. At least with LG.

Nexus5, another great device with great value from Google.

Nexus10 2nd gen (or whatever they wanna call it) is next.
