"I don't understand 8Gb"
-8Gb smartphones are STARTER phones for ANY USER. They are not for the geek, or wannabe-techie. These are the phones intended to sell to your mother or brother-in-law who've used dumb flip phones for the last 10 years.
Those people who were looking to buy an iphone 5 16gb can go for this phone and save a lot of money and they can also get few more features like a bigger screen,nfc and a quad-core processor
Honestly,Boldest design ever in any nexus phone,every company must innovate from this,twice as powerful
a very risky strategy! a highend phone and no cardslot - what will customers say? and further what will apple do? they got a patent on highend phones without any cardslot.
To be honest I do not understand the release of an 8gb model. Since it is also released with 16gb I guess it will fare well, maybe I will even buy it if it has a good price tag (meaning 450euro top). A microsd card or 32gb version would have made this a definite buy for me.
Is 8gb/16gb enough? A micro sd card slot would have been good.... Guess I'll wait a little longer for a new phone.
It was not a good idea to give the production to LG. They have the Optimus G coming and so they don't want that the Nexus will be better. And the storage sucks..
But all in all it's a very good phone.
