[thisismynext] Google ‘Nexus 4G’ rumored for Thanksgiving launch with 720p display... - Page 4

I don't see how anyone can say the build quality is better on samsung than on HTC. Does samsung even have a phone that does not have a fully plastic exterior?

An anyway, the race between manufacturers are always a good sign.

It's still super solid.. you're gonna put a case on it regardless if it's alu or plastic.

and yes, Google isn't going to sponsor a ****ty phone so regardless of who get to make it.. we're getting another great phone.

Edit: Maybe I'm biased but the Magic was freaking terrible.. it was all plastic (like samsung) and it wasn't solid at all.. gross phone. This is where I was turned off HTC.

Thats so true. The construction really matter in a review or such but after use you are going to have to put a case and then it does not matter.

Not everyone uses cases...I hate them. Whats the point of buying nice looking SGS2 or iPhone and then put a ugly case on it. It adds bulk too.

Would be very excited if this came to Verizon, though I wouldn't like the wait till November but if it gets confirmed by say...August I'll wait. Still tied into a family plan but I'll probably grab Sprint once I am not as they appear to be Google's favorite carrier with the best phones.

I doubt it will come to Verizon, Verizon has not been very warm to the Nexus line before. I don't think Verizon particularly wants a device that is modder friendly and has an unlocked bootloader.

I have neverhad a problem with a samsung handset. EVER. I have an EVO 4G from HTC and this is my second HTC phone. I was hesitant because I had the HTC FUZE from ATT and OMGGG HORRIBLEEE PHONE!!!! but then again it was Windows lol so I gave HTC another shot and couldn't be happier!! biggrin.gif

I like the Samsung Charge from Verizon. good god that phone is a sexy piece yessir.gif

I was actually kind of hoping it would be LG making it this time around. Because between LG and Moto I'd much rather see something the maker of the G2X could do, I've not been impressed by one phone by Moto to date.

I put a case on mines because the sgs is so light. I dropped the phone so many times because it slips off my hands lol. Nothing ever broke from dropping it. Love how some of you guys complain about the exterior quality and not the quality of the tech thats in the phones. Hate how phones are now becoming fashion items. Its like the companies are tailoring the specs to how well it fits to a phones shell.

I don't use a case on my N1. It's built of aluminum, it's solid. It's survived several drops to concrete without batting an eye.. The only real downside to the phone is the screen in high-light environments.

Google sponsored the Nexus S, and that had a LOT of downsides to it, especially because there were so many phones out there of it's caliber during the time it was made.
