Hey, what's up guys? Seeing how good my last topic/"article" type deal did the last few days, I decided to do one more for the week. It was a definitely nice seeing people converse on why or why not they want a certain manufacturer to make the next Nexus or not rather than complaining about issues they've been having with their phones and things of that nature(even though the forums are for that too, of course). Also, not saying Droid-Life saw my topic.. but it was cool seeing them with the same type of article the next day on their site. Maybe I inspired that?
Now, back to the subject at hand.
When a Nexus is announced we always expect some features to make it stand out from the rest of the Android world and of course, the i*hone world. This year we saw a few different things.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus
was one of two phones to come out with a 720p HD screen. This definitely set us aside from most other phones, not including the Rezound, as the screen is absolutely gorgeous when watching videos, scrolling through your home page, or going on the web. And the curved glass(though it isn't the first Nexus with this) made viewing angles great. However, with the brightness down.. the graininess is a bit saddening, but not a huge deal.
Aside from the screen we saw a 4.65" display, navigation buttons on screen, the first phone to run Android 4.0 (ICS), and a zero shutter-speed lag camera among of the main things the phone came with. However, one of the biggest complaints with the phone is the camera. While incredibly fast, people don't like the fact that it is shown as a "5-mp" camera. While MP's are not everything, most people aren't super camera-tech savy and do not understand that, and let's face it, it's hard going from an 8mp camera to a 5mp even though the camera quality is better than most 5mp camera phones out there and even 8mp camera's. It's definitely better than my previous DROID and Droid 3.
Now, back to things that I feel need to be included with the next Nexus device:
- The Nexus needs to be at least an 8mp camera. We're not expecting DSLR level pictures, but when phones are already about to start boasting 10+mp's, it needs to be taken up a notch.
- It needs to lead the market once again with the latest OS.
- Keep on screen navigation buttons as I do feel should be the future.
- Make sure it comes out with less bugs.. My phones been fine, but this Nexus had too many complaints for that.
- Come with better marketing! Add key features to get this phone in main stream light more. Add features Dre Beats(gimmicky) software and other features that will draw peoples opinions.
These are some of the things I would like packaged with and into the next Nexus. But enough what I want. What do you guys want?! There's definitely plenty of other features that could be included. An even better and bigger screen, say, 1080p at 5.3"'s(could we even see with that high of resolution?)? Global capabilities, more accessories, SDcard, hdmi port, and dare I say, better dev support? These are just ideas, leave a comment below on what you feel should be included into it.
Thanks for reading!
