Also why would the Nexus 4 be on 4.1..2? You do know it LAUNCHED with 4.2 right? It's currently up to 4.2.2, and that is what I am running. I don't know how your friend got 4.1.2 on his Nexus 4, doing so may cause A LOT of issues.
not sure. He could have mixed up the numbers and meant 4.2.1
Wrecking Ball.

I'd get the Nexus, but it doesnt work on Verizon and I have way to good a deal with them to switch carriers.

You guys that aren't happy with a phone with 64gb of storage and no sd card slot, do you mind telling us what you need more storage for? My old HTC Incredible had total of 16 gb with the sd card, I think I've filled up 8 gigs in the entire 3 years I've owned it...

Then you can get the phone for a reduced price IF your current two year contract is up. Or you just buy the phone at full price/get a used one elsewhere.

I paid $59 a month for my S2's plan (Calls, texting, data, etc) and $5 extra for some of the plans time as a handset repayment fee, insurance was optional and on top of that, my girlfriend got hers a few months after I did and has the exact same thing but without the handset repayments as it was older at that point.

I beg to differ. Samsung at least attempts to improve upon the older models.

I think we can all agree that the Galaxy 4 is nothing more than a Galaxy 3S. There's nothing wrong with that at all, but lots not be silly and act like this is some wildly innovative phone.

Yes, we can all agree that it looks just like a Galaxy S3 but agree with you it's just a refresh? Can I have some of what you're smoking, please?

Hold out for the LG Nexus 5. When it comes to Android you're better off going pure AOSP. thumb.gif

I'm not knocking it at all, no need to get offended. I am positive it's a great phone and Samsung will sell a boat load of these. But there's nothing revolutionary or innovative in my opinion with the G4. The new software features they debuted are gimmicky at best.

I guess I'll be sticking with my S3 for a bit D:

There was nothing revolutionary about the galaxy s3 either...
