I'm a little confused does anyone know if this phone will work on GSM network, since I'm only seeing it coming to verison or there will be a Gsm version?
InFlamesJuan, 29 Oct 2011Actually i have the sgs2 and has 8mp camera recording 1080p @30fps, and has 4.3" display.... moreHey InflamesJuan
I have the same argument with myself, but after thinking i said to myself that the most important thing is the screen, and the bigger and clearer the better. The galaxy nexus has a PPI(pixel per inch) of 316, while the sgs2 is in the 200s. plus the most important thing about a camera is its sensor (to capture in as much light as possible), and i don't know about you, but i'm not a professional photographer, and the higher the megapixel is better when you make the picture bigger(depending on the sensor of course) Now Samsung is going to take their time releasing the update, and if your going with at&t, don't even think about them sending the update in January, probably march(unless you put a ROM, then youll probably get that in December) I hope that helps.
siva992, 29 Oct 2011I think the problem is that the camera is a 5MP camera than the SGSII has a 8MP camera. Noneth... moreMegapixels are a myth, the sensor is much more important... The only Thing megapixels are good for is if you are going to be blowing your pictures up into 4' high wall hangings. A 5MP camera is not going to look ANY worse than an 8, especially on a screen that isn't even 5" corner to corner. Look it up.
jetpack101, 29 Oct 2011Why would they put the 3.5mm jack at the bottom of the phone. If you have it in your top poc... moremoving sockets to the bottom, stops water getting in the top when you answer a call in the rain.. I think its a good idea
This phone seems amazing!! like omg
1GB Ram, only thing that sucks is the
lack of an SD card slot, but 8.9mm thick with LTE
OMGGG super dense screen, super fast processor,
amazing camera (btw, I'm guessing the reason it's
5mp rather than 8 is because that would be 60% more information to process, and that would mean it's 60% longer shutter time, ruining their super fast click and watch thingy)
Disappointed, 29 Oct 2011I'm so disappointed in this phone.. They clearly rushed it. No 8mp rear camera(IDC if people s... moredude look at the internal memory... I dont see any need to an SD card with such a big internal memory...
Actually i have the sgs2 and has 8mp camera recording 1080p @30fps, and has 4.3" display..
i mean... galaxy nexus has 4.65" and 5mp 1080p @30 fps...
and Probably in january 2012 samsung upgrade the s2 with the new android 4.0...
sh*t can't decide
Why would they put the 3.5mm jack at the bottom of the phone.
If you have it in your top pocket you want it coming out the top of the phone and the USB at the bottom for charging.
It means now that you have to have the phone upside down in your pocket so your not putting pressure on the sensitive wires on your headset.
Such a lovely phone!
But, it could have been made the best one in the whole market.
It is said that the Carrier is Verizon.
Is this a Verizon Phone with GSM/HSDPA support?
Shouldn't all Verizon Phone be CDMA/EVDO ?
I think the problem is that the camera is a 5MP camera than the SGSII has a 8MP camera. Nonetheless, I am falling in love with this phone 'coz it's Android 4 and the UI is great!
I'm so disappointed in this phone.. They clearly rushed it. No 8mp rear camera(IDC if people say sensor is better but an 8mp with good sensor beats 5mp with good sensor ENOUGH SAID),no 2mp front camera,no Gorilla glass wth?!? and No GOD DAMN SD CARD (what the hell where the thinking? i mean galaxy s2 has it why not add it in Nexus? totally rushed the production of it)This is a big let down... They could've made this phone PERFECT with all the above specs i mentioned.. I mean they have the technology and they did it to their other phone (galaxy s2) don't see why they couldn't add those specs in this phone. Then it would've been Perfect i would've payed over $1000 for this phone... But sorry im totally disappointed and now i have to wait for a better phone to come... Hope they stop being selfish and greedy in the future... Because seems to me it's all about money and not the customers.
