well im not due for an upgrade for a couple months however i really wanna research peoples opinions now so i have a pretty good idea what i will get, i dont think i'll be able to afford the "latest and greatest" phone that will be out in 2 months time so im really only considering the current phones out now, namely the rezound and galaxy nexus...im just torn between the 2 and cant decide so i want to hear real user experiences with both.
On one hand im a huge music fan so the beats headphones and beats audio is a plus and like the look of the rezound and it seems to fit better in hand just a little and it has an amazing camera (i have heard its one of the best but cant really try it out very well). However i have heard that, despite its monster specs, it still has some annoying lag and who knows exactly when it will get the ics upgrade and how sense will figure into (sense as is doesnt bother me other than being a memory hog).
On the other hand im definitely very into rooting, romming, kernels and tweaking everything i can in my phone so the massive developer support for the nexus is a huge, huge plus, and love the look and options of ics, and the super fast updates from google are also a plus, and im sure im forgetting some more positive stuff as well.
However i have heard that it still has signal issues, dropping data and even dropping calls, and im also concerned about the lack of removable memory since i do have a ton of music i listen to (about 1400 songs on my current phone) an im not sure how well the internal sdcard works as far as transferring anything and of course the issue of "am i ever going to run out of storage??"
my current phone is the original droid 1 by the way and i do not currently have 4g in my area (nearby and may expand here? or might not get it for a long time, if ever)
So the things i currently use my phone for most are (ranked 1-5 for how much i use each and how important they are)
transferring files to/from phone (4)
internet based apps (4)
watching videos/viewing pics/general screen quality (4)
stylish/cool looking design (3)
phone calling (1)
video chat [Skype] (1- never used it but might try with a phone that has a front camera)
Please support why you think your phone is better/worse than the other...and please only people who currently have or have had the phone comment on what issues you have with your phone, you know best
PLEASE REPLY IN A RESPECTFUL, CIVIL MANNER...NO FLAMING, NO TROLLING, ETC....I WILL IGNORE SUCH COMMENTS AND REPORT THE POST(S) IF NEEDED
also, screenshots, benchmark scores (except quadrant please), videos, etc are appreciated
Thank you in advance
