I'm on an OG ... root/GB liquidsmooth rom

(I'm not so interested in root or rom-ing the new phone .. I only did this on my OG just b/c it got so laggy/slow... )

Wife just upgraded to D4 (haven't seen it yet til later tonight)

thoughts for me are here .. .but would love owners thoughts too

D4
keyboard v touch - I kind of never got used to screen typing/swiping ... as I've only had the OG and the screen is so small (big hands)
Okay battery 1785
pentile screen -meh
don't mind the chunky size coming from OG
?

Maxx
I kind of never got used to screen typing/swiping ... as I've only had the OG
Okay battery 3304
don't mind the chunky size coming from OG
?

Galaxy Nexus
I feel like the Galaxy with the extended battery 2100, Andriod 4.0, usualy first to get Google updates and better screen...

might be my choice...

I haven't shopped in person yet ... just looking for others thoughts before I go out .


btw I use my phone for work (corp email account), calls, games... some streaming but that may change with a larger form factor. also I will be grandfathered into phone with unlimted data.

thanks for the thoughts

I have a Nexus and LOVE it. My choice, but before you pick based on the Google updates thing:

http://androidcommunity.com/google-ends-full-support-for-cdma-devices-including-verizons-galaxy-nexus-20120203/

I assume your on Verizon (poll choice) so this applies to them. Still waiting for my 4.0.3 Update from Verizon which was release in December, 4.0.4 is out already....
Still spectacular phone, instant pictures, no cheap mods from the manufactures like motoblur. Screen is to die for.

I have the galaxy nexus, it is pretty cool. Stock battery though, so on a normal day, it lasts ~17 hours with low to moderate use. the Maxx though has essentially twice that battery life, it solved the smartphone/4g battery life issues just by doubling the size of the battery, and it still looks great. That being said, we have seen how long Motorola can take to roll out updates to its phones, so don't count on ICS soon on it. Go nexus!

so I'm on verizon so if I went nexus on verizon... I'd have android 4.0 .. and I'd image that I'm sol with ICS updates then on Maxx or d4...

yeah this is kind of a bummer .. .but I guess if I can get a year or two from either gaining root or verizon (potentially updating) ... it might be worth it for the screen + extended battery life..


from article"...It’s important to note that the three devices in question still have unlockable bootloaders, and that isn’t likely to change. Ever. The Galaxy Nexus LTE, Nexus S 4G and XOOM CDMA are still valid as developer devices, in the sense that you can download Android code, compile it and run it on them without any barriers. Custom ROMs and other mods will not be affected. Even so, the sudden drop in priority support is certain to ruffle the feathers of serious Android enthusiasts, many of whom bought these phones and tablets based on that support alone. We’ll keep you updated on this story as it progresses.." hopefully the community will take care of itself..

I swear phones are like gaming console it's just a nightmare to get things done because everyone in the business funnel needs to be happy ...
