Yes, it does. Jelly Bean innovations >> iOS innovations, thats not the point im trying to make. The future of mobile phones ARE specs bumps and a few gimmicks, even since the iPhone 4S. And the iPhone is no exclusion.

Another big joke by Apple, same phone same design for 3years, yea call that evolution revolution, buying the same product over and over again....! Apple is a litigation company, and thats it! Please do you self a big favour, go to Google and type ish??? word which is banned in PA....

I love Apple because somehow they manage to keep the iconic trademark look of the iphone and please the majority that wanted a big screen size without compromising the width of the iphone and can still be manageable with one hand, got to give it to Apple they do listen to their loyal fan base, I said loyal fan base not haters..

mate you will always try and put a positive spin on apples disappointing new phone.

face facts though you spent your time trying to slate android with petty things like 'it lags' 'crashes' and the s3 is too big 'you dont need a big screen' etc but now apple have released a bigger screened phone you praise them....the phone is oddly shaped the proportions are just wrong its too tall

and as for the iconic look please no matter how much a design becomes implanted in people's minds there is always a point when it needs refreshing and apple has milked this design for too long

well I think it looks very good.. but once I hold it in my hands i will be for sure... the only thing I want to change is they should release the iconic look and an alternate version.. but ohh well

I only think spec bumps are evolutionary, and even then only when they are necessary. We barely use the full potential of the quad Exynos, we won't need any more power than that for at least 2 years. Yet we're going on with these A-15 OMAP 5s and Exynos 5s that will run circles around it... 2 GB RAM is pretty useful though, it allows for more updates. We should stop with the A-15s in processing power, and keep trying to advance in battery and camera tech; make the phones more durable as well.

The iPhone 5's design looks good, but it just looks a tad ridiculous with it's height... They should've done what Motorola did with the Razr M. It's almost the same size as the iPhone 4S, yet it has a display that's nearly an inch bigger, all because of the minimal bezel. That's how Apple should have went with the iPhone 5...

Some people here might, but not me. I'm actually expecting a lot more from Google than just what is listed here.
If this is it, I'll be kinda disappointed. I want the new Nexus line to have quad-core Snapdragon S4's and Adreno 320's with 2 GB of RAM. Like the Optimus G. That'd be awesome. :D

I fully expect LG's version of the Nexus to come equipped pretty much like that. They are trying to remake their name and have no real flagship so they have no reason not to, unlike Samsung and Sony which have an interest in keeping their flagships at the top of the lineup.

If the LG Nexus is the Optimus G with stock JB, bye bye contract.

stfu libertine, the same phone 5 years in a row is no where near revolutionary.

There no doubt iPhone 5 design is a win for their fans and will sell better than iPhone 4s.

Full agree on this. If motorola market Razor M well it will be a hit with the masses.

They don't want to show favoritism when it comes to manufacturers. Making the Nexus is like a privilege. If Motorola were to make the Nexus alone, all the tech sites would just be flaming Motorola and Google. So it would be a good idea if every major manufacturer made a Nexus. I think the LG, Sony, and Samsung Nexus are just the only "confirmed" ones, and the Motorola and HTC ones are in the works

Every major android brand should have their own nexus.

Unique feature like qwerty keyboard on the motorola, high end camera or gaming feature on Sony, 3D glass free screen and 3D video camera on LG. Pablet on samsung.

There you have it a nexus for everyone :-)

3D was a gimmick and didn't really sell well, it wasn't too practical either. And qwerty keyboards are kind of a dying breed... There are only maybe 2 high end-ish devices out there with qwertys. Who knows if Motorola will make a Droid 5... They probably will, but you never know.

The Sony will have the best camera, the Motorola will have the best antennae and biggest battery, the Samsung and HTC will have the best screens (S-LCD2 and SA HD), and the LG... I don't know.

It'll be cool to see what the next Nexus device will be, but there's no way it will debut this year. The Nexus 7 was technically the last Nexus device & since Nexus devices typically debut alongside the newest version of the operating system, it makes sense that we won't see one until next year.

Why the thumbs down? Do you people actually think we'll see another version of Android this year? That would make three in a one year period. I can't imagine Google wanting to get them out the door that fast.

If the next Nexus supports HSPA+ 42 for T-Mobile, I'll ditch my GSIII without hesitation.
