This is the way of the future everyone else is playing catch up. By new hardare inovation come better graphics and everything. As seen in the CPU or VGA competitive race.
DarkWalker, 04 Oct 2011I don’t think so. iphone 4s won’t be that tough opponent against Galaxy S II. First due to the... moreWow, do you really purchase a phone so that someone "notices" you? And all this time I thought we should buy something because of its superior attributes, not because...well it gets you some.
No hard keys is not a fall. I hate them. Looking forward to this phone.

modify your pocket and make it bigger, big enough to fit an Alienware M18x gaming laptop
DON'T BUY THIS PHONE.
yeah galaxy note or nexus prime that is the question
i love the full and clean reset with nexus no more software bug you can't get rid off. i also love the quick upgrades and the pure google.
but the huge screen is realy important for me so lets wait if the prime come with 4.5 or 4.6 i will buy it. if it come with 4 or 4.3 i will go for the galaxy note
Eye Seven, 05 Oct 2011For those who are saying it's big, then don't get it. As simple as that. It's not created for ... morefirst 4" was too big, then 4.3" was too big, then 4.5" was too big, then 4.65" was too big, then 5.3" is too big... see a pattern? phones are going the tablet/phone hybrid route. the bigger the better!! Personaly, if it fist in my jeans pocket -- it fine. 5.3" does fit in a pair of levi's. thats all i care about.

sick, sick, sick. if the note doesn't come to verizon then this is my next phone.
"It will certainly be a fierce battle between this beast and the upcoming iPhone(s)."
Now that they've released the 4S it ain't! My S2 is still waaaaay better and it was realeased Q1 this year!!! No wonder apple got their panties in a twist!

I think it is a great move! Let's face it, either your phone has a technical problem or it doesn't. Why would soft keys be any less capable than hard keys?
If they are anything like the ones on motorola xoom they will work perfectly.
No physical buttons = less bezel above and below! Hooray! I'm going to be laughing at iPhone 4S owners with their obnoxious bezels glaring at them all the time.

You can see that the buttons near the bottom (which are part of the screen, not capacitive buttons) are perfectly black, like AMOLED should be.
