its cool phone but samsung didn't going to give the best tech to google! they keep the best for them self, but still nexus prime the best google phone cause its getting the update in time unlike other droid device and still has better 1080p video than gs2!
Come On guys!! Who needs a cam in a phone ? a phone is for calling,playing games,watching videos,having fun.. well.. in my phone i use my cam once in a week.. or maybe NEVER.. camera is not necessary..
Ignoring the cam,THIS PHONE IS GREAT
All the usual hypocrisy, defending 5MP. When SGS3 comes with a 16MP, suddenly it'll be WOOOO 16MP WoooOOOOOOTTTT! Cmon guys, just chill.
guldis, 23 Oct 2011In what world does megapixels matter more than optics?Ditto. The lense is far more important than the megapixels. The only thing 8mps will do is give you poster-sized photos. When's the last time you wanted to make a poster?
The real Nexus phone is Droid Razr that coming in Europe. The IMPOSSIBLE THINNEST phone 7.1mm Droid Razr International coming with a unlock boostloader and will get ISC Android 4.0.
They didn't make it a 8mp because it was not fast enough and they wanted to keep it 0 sec shutter lag for the rapid camera capture feature hence why they left it 5mp rather then 8mp. That's my guess and i think I'm probably right otherwise they would've added made it an 8mp camera.. an I think they should've put the 3 led buttons on the bottom like galaxy s2...(no physical button) because this sacrifice abit of the screen IMO.
guldis, 23 Oct 2011In what world does megapixels matter more than optics?If Megapixels dont matter you're saying a vga camera with good optics can beat an 8mp camera?... i disagree it might looks good once captured but when stretch or zoom its a complete blur... so yes mp is necessary especially when you want sharper image hence more pixels > more details > more sharper image. so don't say mp isnt anything in compared to optics.
Megapixels does matter.. when you're zooming/stretching the picture it still stays sharp and 3million extra pixels is pretty good... so don't say Mp is useless because you can have a vga camera with good optics and the picture looks same as the 8mp one but when you zoom in or stretch it it looks blurry as crap..
Google should not relaying on Samsung in future,
....very selfish, when nexus prime specifications is compare with its own galaxy series.

Not sure when, however.
well this sucks, I waited so long for the galaxy s2. Now that the phone is available, they come up with android 4.0. why should we spend $550 for an old version of android now????
anasef2020, 22 Oct 2011The Camera 5MP. I Can't believe that. The Camera Should be 8mp , I think there is Something wrongIn what world does megapixels matter more than optics?
Better to go with either Motorola Razr King of Android phones, or iPhone 4S.
The camera is the reason I hate Samsung in the smartphone arena. They have it all, everything you need and more, until you push the snapper button.
Just a big miss. Hope they have a Galaxy with a good snapper in the works.
AnonD-16303, 23 Oct 2011i thought it would have tegra processor disappointing I think Samsung did not have a chance to do the spec list for this Nexus phone. Google put up the specs though. If so, it is quite disappointed that Exynos was not selected. However, I believe the upcoming review will speak for itself. If the phone performs well within our expectation, it shows that the specs work. Agree?
AnonD-1846, 23 Oct 2011That goes for u as well and even More because Moto Merge with Google but not with Samsung stil... moreWell, all the more Google can really on Motorola to build its future Nexus phones. Samsung will be their hardware supplier. I call it SMG (Samsung-Motorola-Google) Nexus series.
