You sure this has a microSD slot?

If not, I will be forced to take a long look at the Moto Razr. Had my mind set up tne Galaxy Nexus until I started hearing no SD card. Samsung didn't learn from the outcry over not microSD on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. What a shame.

Sweet I actually prefer headphone jack at bottom so when the phone is on my desk the cord placement is more natural for headphones.

Wow, interesting that all sammy fanboys have been saying 5mpx camera is big fail (iphone 4) and other's have had that years now. So wonder what they think now, are these specs fanatics still going to buy this phone, even it's very big fail if you ask from sammy fans.

I mean these sammy fans have been marketing this phone in every news and now it's total disappointment, funny.

Are you kidding me?? This is APPLE not ANDROID.. Apple has already done all the troubleshooting( something apple and fanboys are particularly proud of), Siri is the ONLY thing that the iphone 4s has over a galaxy s2 or wait, most flagship phones from most android manufacturers.. (Just a brand name dont worry the tech has been there long enough).. so.. no way its coming to ip4.

> In reply to yellow @ 2011-10-19 15:53 from 0EIA - click to readSorry, that PCMag article is the most dumb "analysis" I've seen in a while. It confuses OS with OEM, says Google is buck-passing when in regards to its devices (G1, Magic, N1, NS and now SGN) it has a pretty solid and predictable update roadmap.

Comparing to WP7 is illogical when you count what WP is right now.

Finally, when he says Microsoft "gets it right" because they keep it "one screen resolution and chipset", and even making a "mea culpa" he still thinks it's right (decide yourself), he just doesn't understand how Android became the most sold OS for phones.

Really, it takes knowledge in the field to write articles about programming, developers, OS, manufacturers and their relation to customers. That guy has none. Oh wait, he has. His knowledge of the field is the Apple/MS way: there can't be right outside my right.

No wonder he will be left complaining when ICS become another success.

Of course, I acknowledge Android's faults. But what he said completely missed the proper points.

I would rather have a Jack on the bottom of my s2 so I don't need to turn it round in my hand every time I reach for it and take it out my jeans.

Does it really matter?
