[HotHardware]Samsung Reveals Galaxy Premiere: 4.65" Android 4.1 Smartphone - Page 2

post #11 of 46
Thread Starter 
I'm talking about big screens on phones. This phone is obviously a mid-range one, but they still managed to give it a >4" screen, just for the sake of making it look like the big boys.

Clothing manufacturers will need to adapt and make bigger pockets?
If you scratch that display, it will cost you hundreds of dollars to replace etc etc.

My Galaxy S3 fits in my existing jeans no problem. Also this phone is smaller, they aren't increasing phone size with screen size. They shave off surface area and trade it for screen space.

Similar to Galaxy Nexus. Maybe left over screen and hardware.

I was standing in line at the bank yesterday and a guy beside me was fiddling with his device. I leaned over and commented "nice tablet"... He said, "tablet? This is my cell phone???". It was gigantic and Samsung.

Anytime you need a backpack to carry a cellphone it's too big.... Remember when smaller was better?

Getting aggrivated with samsung atm tbh. My first smartphone was the original Galaxy S (Fascinate) and in the entire time I had it, there were like 3 new versions of android out ahead of what they had on that phone and it annoyed me to no end. When I broke it (dropped it off a catwalk at work), it's actually because of my annoyed experience w/ them not keeping the phone up to date, that I ended up buying an iPhone 4 instead. Now, once again, I'm back with samsung, rockin their latest and greatest galaxy s3 and once again, still behind. I get jelly bean is relatively new and all, but why the F are they so slow to get the ball rolling on it? 4.2 is already out and yet the vast majority of GS3 users in the states (AT&T and Verizon users) are still sitting on 4.0.4. Now I see they're releasing a new phone in the galaxy line that COMES with 4.1? Come on samsung, how about helping out existing owners a bit. You can't tell me it's hard to get jelly bean out on these phones. CM10 was flashed onto this phone within mere days of release, even for verizon customers with a locked bootloader. Are you telling me a mega-billion dollar corporation isn't good enough to get an update out before a group of hobbyists? Or even several months after for that matter?


/rant.

(P.S. - I do still love my S3. I just hate that Samsung's support for it is total garbage.)

Google has a line of device called the Nexus. I'm sure you already know this, but if you really are concerned with using the latest build of android perhaps consider a nexus device? The ones built to house the latest android. This is the reason there is a nexus line.

Yes, it doe take a corporation longer to push software updates rather than a group of hobbyists, a corporation needs extensive testing even after the code is 100% finished. Logic ftw.

Every word of this.
My first android was the GSII. I liked it a lot, but then I replaced it with the Nexus. I would never EVER go back to using an Android device that is not from the Nexus line. Way faster of a device, most likely because of that crummy TouchWiz. Plus with the Galaxy S line you have to root to get rid of all of the bloatware that comes with. The Nexus doesn't have any of that crap.

I'm sorry but I dislike the nexus' hardware. It's good no doubt, but it's not as great as it could be. Side by side in the store, the GS3 just feels so much better in the hardware department. Even the new nexus 4 doesn't even look that impressive to me. It's not the carrier's fault either, samsung literally has a list on their website of the US carriers that the update will be rolling out to, and so far, it's incredibly slow and has only been actually updated for sprint. Hell, in september, samsung said that it's possible the update might not even be released to most US carriers until 2013. I'm sorry but that's ridiculous imo. When apple releases an update, does it take 6 months for it to finally get to each carrier? No, it goes out to every phone in the country at the same time. There's no reason why other companies can't do the same thing.

Yeah, are you talking about the GNex? We're talking NEX4, which has better HW.
