    Looks pretty good build quality to me, especially since it's Samsung. Most Samsung phones I've had my hands on were very plastic-y and felt cheap. From what I've heard this device is premium for a Samsung device.

    Wouldn't say you waited for nothing...

    Just means you don't want it and you can mull over some other options ahead of time, such as the Razr which has the best build quality out right now imo. I mean it has kevlar on it for cryin out loud

    I'm not sure about the Razr being the best build quality. The Kevlar is paper thin and it's only there as a selling point basically. :blink: In drop tests the Nexus actually survived better. I do agree though that the Razr is of extremely high build quality probably the best on paper but in the real world I'm not sure. The screen shattered when dropped from a short distance, they dropped the Nexus down stairs and it survived gallantly!!! :biggrin: Right now, I am definitely leaning toward the Nexus but if anything disappoints on it, I think I'll wait, I'm not really liking any phones on the market as of now... I'm patient!:icon_ lala:
