I got my girlfriend a Note 2 and it's awesome, and if I were up for a new phone it'd be the only one I'd really consider.

I am hoping that, despite my disappointment in the Nexus name being abused, we will see what is essentially a Galaxy Nexus Note. Dual Quad-Core SoC, 4GB LP-DDR3, next-gen GPU utilizing 1GB LP-GDDR5 VRAM 2-64GB Onboard Samsung NAND Flash with its own low-power tri-core controller (take the 840Pro controller, optimize for use in smaller device), a 5.8-6.3" 2560x1200/2880x1340p/2560x1440p or equivalently high-dpi screen with RGB Super-AMOLED HD+ (WRGB subpixel layout), native USB3.0 connection, support for up to 128GB SDXC UHS-2 add-in storage, HDMI *and* DisplayPort video output, and a removable 4800mAh battery. Throw in dual LTE Antenna so that we can get closer to the actual possible throughput of 4G LTE (max out 44MB/sec down and 32MB/sec up with current phone and modified radios), ideally 100MB/s up and down, and give it 3x3 WiFi radios/antenna supporting both dual-band N and AC (concurrent dual band would be an instant sell to me, as I run a home network whose wireless portion consists of 2x ASUS RT66-AC Routers, 2x Asus AC access points, 2x 802.11N900 (450+450 3x3) routers, and a total of 6 450+450/450+300/300+300 Access Points/Repeaters, all feeding 14 different Wireless Adapters (all but two are dual-band 450+450, and I have my downstairs media PC + 2x laptops running AC Adapters although I'll be adding more; then there is the Gigabit Ethernet thatI hhave running to critical stuff, although I am extremely tempted to get 4-5x 10GbEth Intel NIC's and run them instead as I want to get 1.2GB/s from server's RAID0, but it will take some ebay hunting).

Of course, I realize that I may be asking for more than is reasonable, but is it really that much so?

Oh no no no, that is not a phone, even though people love to be able to watch movies on their phone, I believe that the phone and tablet should be to different products, and not be mixed like that.

In my opinion I think all Android phones should be stock Android just like the Nexus line. Google should make that mandatory. No more touch wise, moto blur ect...This would not only fix the performance issue but will also enable the user to get the latest and great updates right away and not wait a month or two for the manufacturer to add there touch on it!

This would ruin Android. Google has so many OEM's using Android because they allow the OEM to customize it and make it their own. In the end, all Google wants is their services to be used by these smartphone owners, they don't care what skin they put on Android itself. Take that away, and those OEM will just fork Android for themselves, and remove all of Google's services from it.

The only problem is that Android is based on FOSS software, and therefore, Google is not in any position to make anything mandatory to use it.

Really not sure why this is such a big problem for everyone, the differences between 4.1 and 4.2 were minimal and frankly the One is a damn marvel in regard to build quality and overall usability...

It's 1pm here- i've been on my One since 7 am- been on reddit, facebook, email, screen is full brightness.

I'm at 92% battery.

That in itself says A LOT... it's a 1080p display! ... And they put a kick @$$ camera on it too!

Get it for the hardware... if you're so worried about the OS ... root it and upgrade... it takes 30 minutes.

HI

Previous to the emergence of Android 4.3, it was presumed that the next edition of the Big G’s mobile OS would be Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, a important leap from the current Android Jelly Bean 4.2.x.

I'm still on 2.x.x ( can't recall right now).
HTC ditched support along time ago, so i'm stuck with old hardware withouth newer software that would probably make it faster ( I feel like i'm on slow motion when using my cellphone).
My next purchase will probably a used iPhone than supports iOS6 or 7 of it comes out by then.
No support after spending 100$ on a phone with money being short as it is, is not cool.
And i've used the newer 4.2.X versions and don't really see much innovation for basic use.

Maybe I should go back to my 3310...

I'm also hoping that HTC just passed on 4.2.2 and is just waiting for 4.3 then we will get it before anyone else :-) other than the Nexus 4 of course....

If a bunch of unpaid modders/devs can push out custom ROMs for handsets, theres zero reason that multibillion dollar conglomerates can't. Fragmentation is disgusting.

I love custom roms as much as anyone. But I do know a official rom generally requires a lot more work, time and money. With the rate Google is releasing them most manufacturers can't keep up. Only a few are making a real profit. I want Google to work on more in house apps that work for a wide range of android devices instead of focusing so much on these small updates. Keep it down to 1 large update a year.
