Is the Nexus 4G Google's third phone? Specs get detailed - read the full textTake this with a pinch of salt because there is no official source, people. The guys over at BGR claim that they have gotten some details on the specs of the third Nexus phone by Google. And it is almost needless to say that they look more than impressive. According to the BGR source, the...

As current rumored Specs stand it would fall woefully short of being cutting edge. Let's hope Google and (Samsung) whomever manufactures the next Google phone takes heed. Although nice that it will have ICS (A-v4.0) without pushing the hardware envelope it'll pale against then current devices. Its understandaable it won't include the 4-core KaEl but 5MP when most topine phones are launching at 8MP? And 720p rather than 1080p or I? Persoannly if its to be a "huge" display and utilize Android 4.0 then it needs to be the be-all and end-all not just another so-so device. Come on Google....Push The Envelope

Iffy specs. There is no such thing as a 1 megapixel front facing camera resolution. It's not standard. It either has to be 0.3, 1.3, or 2 megapixels.

my n95 with really old 5mp camera takes better pictures than most 8 megapixel phones now. My point is the sensor and the lens are way more important than the megapixel count.

For all of you bashing the camera and for the person who wrote this article, the number of megapixels doesn't mean squat. A larger and better quality sensor and a good lens on a 5mp will beat anything above it if it doesn't use quality parts. The reason most phone pictures don't look that great is because they use cheap parts compared to most full size cameras.

But Se's cameras are so overrated. K750i was great, but K800 had iso set to 400 when strobe was used, K850i and newer flagships had cheap matrices and plenty of chroma noise. It seams that only Nokia and Samsung care about photography in phones these days, arc's quality is joke, typical lack of detail and chroma noise, like 200X sony cameras.

I don't think it matters how good they say it is, consumers who want a good camera phone won't buy it with only 5 mega pixels.

They have good battery life and they are very competent devices even with an older UI.

Nokia fans... Camera's all you got.
