Just wished if we had more choice of this uncorrupted Android OS Phones from other manufaturers too. The customised UI of other vendor id good but delays the updates. I would prefer Nexus because of this. once a good hardware and slim profile W7 phone comes I will move to it for sure. iPhone is becoming pain in eyes with smaller screen. it is stupid to think 3.5 is the right size.

4.65 inches feels little big in my opinion but i think its almost reaching size of tablet with galaxy note (like mini tablets).

Trashing this phone is good. This means that the iBoyz are envious.

Some people want bigger phones, as I do, actually I want samsung galaxy note 5.3" yes when it comes to phones bigger is better for me... and heavier. What's more to say, some people got big hands, some people got small hands ;)

I'm glad I went to Best Buy and picked mine up. The lady in front of me was purchasing two!

I work in a vodafone store in Sydney and i picked mine up yesterday. It was hard to get used to for the first couple of hours (jumped from Galaxy S i9000) but im now really start to enjoy it. I miss having hardware keys but ICS is defnitely the future!

playing with one in store right now, ICS is outstanding, 'too big' is obviously a rather personal decision (and a stupid thing to complainabout) and the camera is fine. Barely noticeable difference when compared with an S2... buuuut ICS and nexus has zero shutter lag, so better snaps on the move :D

Now if you want something real to complain about, non-expandable memory from samsung is annoying. But it looks like all samsung releases from here on out will not be supporting expandable memory.

how disappointingly apple :(

GETTING THIS PHONE TUESDAY AND I WILL WAVE IT TO EVERY APPLE CULTIST I WALK PAST GLEEFULLY

> In reply to skunk @ 2011-12-16 18:28 from x{Vt - click to readI have a Galaxy Nexus and it's no bigger than any other phone, just because the screen is larger than most doesn't mean the actual phone it. The bezel is so small the phone size hasn't changed. After using this screen, looking at any phone under 4" makes you think you need a magnifying glass to do anything. ICS isn't complicated, I can jum from program to program to program without even leaving anything.

Should Google just blindly develop the software, and expect the hardware companies to adapt it?

What will be the turn over rates be?

Or should they work with EVERY SINGLE manufacturer at the same time so its "fair"?

People need to boycott the Nexus series. The entire idea of creating privileged "Nexus" Devices is completely against the spirit of the purported openness of the Android platform.

Of all the Android phones, only this got my attention. However, I wonder if it'll get any attention if it's sold at an unsubsidized price?

Biggest flop after Nokia symbian 3 phones. People who want big phone already owns sgs2, So why buy this phone? And only ten comments, it tells that people are not interested of this phone.

Also, what it has over the GSII is simple. ICS! Also it has no touchwiz overlay and a MUCH better screen. Don't start with all this "But teh Pentile Matrix" crap. When Engadget saw the screen, they initially were not aware of it being a pentile screen, assumed it was SAMOLED+ and raved about it being the best screen in the world! It still is that same screen, regardless of what symbols are on the name of the display. It is bright, sharp, ridiculously clear and basically the nicest screen of any mobile phone right now.
