Am I the only one willing to sacrifice another 1 or 2mm thickness for a bigger battery? Not terribly fond of the Razr MAXX HD but dat bat life... drool.gif

2600 mAh is already a really big battery, But I too would preferred the phone to remain at the same thickness as S3(8.6mm instead of 7.9mm) and gain some more battery capacity.

Nothing wrong with using made-up words, but it is a word. Also an entirely different scenario to mixing up your "then's" and "than's."

You know, I really love how so many people online and Irl love to bag on the iPhone for making the same exact thing every time and "overcharging" customers for it. Yet when Sammy does the exact same thing, nobody gives a damn. Consistency they say. What a bunch of bs. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love Sammy, but I really do not understand the Apple hate. Best phone so far, is the new HTC One imo.

The GPU looks similar, in name, to the Apple GPU's? OR am I mistaken biggrin.gif

What's your guestimate? I've seen ones around Antutu scores of 25k

I'll stick with my Nexus 4, looks like a nice phone but still don't like how cheap the Galaxy phones feel and I hate the UI..... stock Android UI for the win!! thumb.gif

^ Use a theme and use Nova Launcher.. then it's just as nice looking (the UI) wink.gif (I use Nova even on my Nexus 10 - much more customisable)

No, but that doesn't matter wink.gif "Pure Android" misses some decent features other manufacturers provide.

That's an SGS3. Looks identical to the Nexus... except it has a few Samsung specific features. Runs just as well, too.

EDIT:

Though, I think the key point is that if you don't want to have to modofy your phone to look/act more like stock android, then a Google device is for you... but I much prefer an SD card slot over stock Android. If my GF hadn't insisted we get a Nexus 10... but y'know what womena re like.
