Samsung Nexus Prime gets full frontal exposure, Android Ice Cream Sandwich too
0. phoneArena 07 Oct 2011, 05:08 posted on
We are indeed seeing what might be the first shots of Android Ice Cream Sandwich, if this leak holds water, and the future seems bright. While the front is interesting, it would be great to see the metal back and the curved chassis up close and personal, not to mention to solve the 5MP or 8MP dilemma once and for all, but Tuesday is close enough...
This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Where were they going to put all the rest of the hardware? Speaker, LTE radio, etc...? It's a phone, not a microtablet.

edge to edge screen is the NEXT iteration... lol, your jumping ahead. Thats what the galaxyS3 is supposed to sport. its an HD screen version 2 basically.
See, thats the problem with all these future articles about tech.. we cant keep our timelines straight anymore!! lol

was the guy holding the phone have massive hands? i thought its around 4.65? well its PRETTY COOL!! O_O
whos the bald guy who took the video anyway? :) you got yourself on cam :) haha

It'll be a neatly packaged 4.6". I expect this phone to be the same size as the Sensation/EVO 3D.

hope so :) now we only need to wait for the final specs.
Nexus Prime on Holidays!

Appreciate the leak, but not too impressed with this bad-quality video, even at 1080p it's out of focus.
All the specs are sounding great, but what will they do for the end user? This video shows pretty, fluid motion between home screens...well great, so is that why I'm buying this 1.5GHz Exynos? So that navigating the homescreen is finally as fluid as an iPhone? Show me video on the 4.65" screen. Show me a game taking advantage of the dual-core horsepower, show off the battery life on the 720p large OLED screen. Until we see reasons for buying this brute of a phone, I'm not sold.

Open an app from the lock screen? Looks like HTC Sense...

Those clustered bunch of icons at the bottom are hideous. The app icon is horrible. They can do much better.

Google finally realised it was a crappy phone and decided to not released it... finally they dont rush things...
79. taz89 (Posts: 2014; Member since: 03 May 2011)
if you actually read there statement they postponed it due to steve jobs death out of respect...try commenting without thinking like a fanboy for once
82. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
"We don't know if this has anything to do with Steve Jobs passing away, or something else is brewing"
learn how to read idiot...
84. protozeloz (Posts: 5393; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
its confirmed now
also the event was delayed, but when the phone gets released? that might not change... just saying
75. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
i like everything but the icons therefore i'll hope Motorola makes some subtle changes to things like that for my Droid 3.
93. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
i doubt they'll work with ICS smart one.
102. protozeloz (Posts: 5393; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
will have them on really soon :D wait and see
80. spind426 (Posts: 5; Member since: 06 Oct 2011)
Oh cool its not curved. That would have driven me apes**t. Anyone hear the news about the oct11th announcement being delayed because of steve jobs death? Im so pissed, first i was waiting for the iphone 5.. that was a letdown from apple, now we android users have to wait longer too?
83. spind426 (Posts: 5; Member since: 06 Oct 2011)
Gallitoking i am surprised how often i see your name appear on forums, just about every other post over 100's of pages i've viewed. I was watching something last night about internet addiction and how it effects people. It is said that it is due to something missing in their lives. For example, people who spend all day in chatrooms must have had social problems growing up, and people that are addicted to viewing pornography must have not been givien the adequate amount of love growing up. You need to have confidence in yourself and talk to people in real life. Although getting attention from others on the internet may temporarily help your symptoms of lonliness, you are not adressing the real problem.

Or perhaps he just uses the comment pages for his own amusement. Some people troll for fun, warped as it sounds. You can't take internet interactions too seriously, it's not healthy.
91. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
@rodelfol... never tak any comment from here personal.. maybe once with remix... other than that.. you guys dont know me and i dont know you guys... we all cool... sorry you guys dont see like that.. i do... you guys amuse me,....
90. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
thank you dr.... but you are wrong... you see I live a very normal job.. and i do talk to live people... trust me.. but thank you for showing interest in me.. you must have a boring life when you research someone from a public forum... you see trying to make me look like a loser. .made you look like a loser.. I personally would waste my time.. researchig someone like you....... now can i go....
92. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
yea, ya take things personally. remember, im a racist, and all android users are the enemy! oh and "the boards made me this way".. lol. so obviously you take quite a bit personally.
95. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
you are racist... and when I said the comment about being the enemy i was being sarcastic.. ok (ilia comments about her nonsense doesnt bother you.. focus on her on that )... when I said the board made me this way... is that fandroids are sooo stupid and argue the same things over and over... that i am lowering myself... to their level.. is called blend in... outside this forum.. i am stil me.. trust even happier because i release stress,... you even said it your self you do that... so your point is.. remix..
99. cnwwyo (Posts: 126; Member since: 26 May 2011)
why is he racist? because he disagrees with u?lol
101. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
nop is a while back ago.. that happen... is not important anymore... i know you were being sarcastic. but still answered your question properly...
103. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
what happened was people were making comments about him posting gibberish in his posts because he would laugh by saying jajajaja, instead of haha or lol. I pointed out that jajaja is a spanish thing to get them to understand that he wasnt posting gibberish with that.. and he got all bent out of shape and started calling me a racist this and that. he has been calling me a racist ever since even though i brought it up in his DEFENSE.
of course his posts are hard to read even without that confusion because he lacks any kind of sentence structure. Reading his posts is reading a bad william shatner impersonation with even less of a point.
104. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
lololol, i guess that's what you get guy. xD
105. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
what if I told you I write like that because i am missing fingers.... i write with my left hand only... i didnt want to say anything as i write with the left and on the go.. so excuse for not being perfect... Iwas going toput things behind .. but again you make fun of me with out knowing..
94. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
@spind. You must be attracted to him. Because there are others in here who have way more posts than him :-)
For instance. Before you posted this comment, gallitoking only had 2 posts while roldefol already had 11 posts :-)

Looks nice but curved glass doesn't look safe to me to carry around in the pocket. Our even having something to protect it. But looks like a powerful phone.
87. Dark4o90 (Posts: 205; Member since: 20 Feb 2011)
i don't know if these pictures are screenshots but they are NOT 1280x720
97. corporateJP (Posts: 2431; Member since: 28 Nov 2009)
My question is, will it operate that way and how many bugs will be on board from the get go?
I'm all in on Android, but I'd like to see something fool-proof out of the box for a change.
107. GeekMovement (Posts: 2109; Member since: 09 Sep 2011)
Looks amazing! I envy all who are going to get this phone :-P

As strange as it sounds, I'm starting to get bored with ICS because It is nothing really new. If you're running custom themed roms (and launchers) this ain't a stretch. Smooth yes, but the chefs are really good at smooth, and they can let you tweak the speeds of the transitions to be faster than this. Android was a revelation compared to iOS, and it still is. I love showing my Apple friends how custom you can make 2.3.5 Ginberbread. But ICS so far is seeming like (taking a page from iPhone) "Gingerbread S".
