    ..that Q1 and Q2 phones are going to make this phone seem obsolete? I've been holding out my upgrade for what I thought to be the Nexus, but aftwr having it for a week now,I feel like it could be easily outdone. Dont get me wrong, I am liking this phone more and more every day, but I do think it could have been better on samsungs part.

    Lets face it, screen and operating system aside the S2 is a better phone, so is anyone worried about the s3 and other mew phones slated to come out next year? I know woth android you.pretty much have to pick and never look back, but I held my.upgrade for so long for what I thought would be the perfect choice. Can't blame a guy for having doubts.:unsure:

    No.... this phone will be at the top of the list at least for the 2012 era. The nexus s just got ICS and is still a great phone. Nothing will touch this phone for 6 months and still even then it will be the first in the fleet for updates and dev support will blow all others out of the water, just look at the og.

    Nope.

    I can easily hang onto this phone for 2yrs+. Normally I upgrade every year, but I'm sure this phone will hold it's own for a long long time. We get updates first, and if that fails, we got developer support like no other phone. I mean come on, we had root before the phone officially released like a month ahead of time. And we had ROMs the day of release. If Google/Verizon fails us, the developer community definitely will be there

    Im thinking with all the future development we'll see once we get a stable OTA with everything fixed, that this phone will keep up with the competition, I just can't help but get those second thoughts haha. I think I was sitting on my upgrade for too long.

    yeah honestly with all the dev support and the hardware being more than capable of handling all mobile applications we may need, it can stay relevant for 2 years! It may not be the best phone on the market but it will always be stable enough to keep up.

    There will always be a better phone around the corner. If you always wait for the next best thing, you'll never buy a new phone.

    Agreed, but I'd like to add that this kind of thinking means you'll never truly enjoy your phone.

    For me, it's been a week since I had the Nexus and I still find it hard to put down. The only time this happened was when I got the OG Droid. My Incredible was a great phone, but even after 2 days I let that sit idle for hours on end, this phone, I gotta be by the charger if I'm not trying to see how long the battery lasts:D

    This phone will be good for me...which is all that really matters. I will enjoy MY phone as long as it works as designed. I got caught up in the "Newest, Latest, Greatest, Bestest, Awesomest, Coolest, Best, etc" phone thing starting with the TB, then the Bionic, the the Rezound, then the Razr, then the Nexus. At some point I got tired of research and reviews and went to a store. I tried them all out in their respective moments, one at a time. I knew that the Nexus will have future support...the rest I just don't know. With the amount of phones that drop every 8-12 seconds it was hard to figure out which was "best" or which will be best for the longest.

    Finally, knowing that I would have official and Dev support, I bought the Nexus because it was the right choice for me overall. I love the screen, the OS, the camera (it's ok), the speed, the sensitivity, and mostly the support. I cannot recall which DF member posted this quote, so I can't give him credit. Hopefully he will see this. He said that he didn't buy this phone for all that it is, but what it will be. We are still in the early morning of this piece and there is much happening in the Nexus ways. I really don't think that as an electronics/Droid fan, I could want anything else.

    Unless I misunderstand what you're saying, I have to disagree. knowing that there is something better coming doesn't mean I can't enjoy what I have.

    There will always be a better phone, a better car, a better video game, a better looking woman, etc.
    That in no way means I'm unhappy with what I current have.

    i was thinking about this slightly when i read the announcement of the S3, but in all honesty if a device works almost perfectly, whats the difference? i mean, what other features can they put in that you would feel like you HAD to uprade?

    The Nexus is plenty fast and hardware wise almost perfect. A better camera, maybe, if thats important to you, but its not an issue for me. Heavy developer support is way more important as far as I'm concerned. I have no regrets buying this phone.

    Even with the current signal issues this phone is amazing, I will take a pure Google device out of the box over any loaded down skin any day!

    To be or not to be........................wait what was the question? This signature has been Tapatalk approved.

    this phone finally has the buttery smooth interface I was looking for and ics is so nice I think its amazing. Once I turned off nfc my battery life improved or something happened anyway. But the battery life is great now. This phone does everything I want it to do great. And a huge plus is that typing on it is so much improved from my og and dx. It finally gets what I'm typing and fixes errors extremely well. Its just a great device. And if I ignore the signal bar the speeds are great regardless of what the signal bar shows. At least for me

    Obsolete, no. Will there be better phones spec wise? Obviously. But the updates this phone will get, and the dev support, will be par-none for quite some time.

    Pure hardware specs, sure from that point of view it could. It depends more on what is important to the user though. For me, the answer is unless the new phones also come with an unlocked/unlockable bootloader, no they won't make the Nexus seem obsolete to me.

    Hadn't thought of turning off NFC. Great tip, droidtom! Trying it now...
