    Right now people are excited about the nexus prime just like we are every android device (hype beast) and at the same time iphone fans are not as stoked about the iphone 4s. So here is my question, when people go and buy the devices and actually use it will things flip and more nexus prime customers be disappointed compare to iphone 4s customers. See the iphone 4s has been already played down so people are not expecting it to be a game changer so the increase in speed and ios 5 tweaks may take them by surprise. The other side is we are all hyped up over the nexus prime its suppose to be the beast we finally been waiting for. In the past the beast we been waiting for (tbolt, bionic, charge) has had some issue that has driven some people to be sort of disappointed. See when you have a lot of hype you either will meet it or cause disappointment. Remember vanilla android does not have the "eye candy" as a sense, blur, or touchwiz. The people who are mainly excited about the nexus are a similar group which are mainly the people who care enough about android to follow it on forums. I had the D1 and I remember seeing sense and even blur (froyo blur) and thinking "wow that looks nice". The nexus should be smooth and fly because of not having a ui on top of it. In the end will Nexus users be proud of their purchase or disappointed.

    THis is not meant to bash iphone or android, because they will alway be linked and as iphone improves it pushes android and vice verse. So keep it civil and do not bash someone with a different opinion.

    *Puts on flame suit*

    The general public in my mind always looked forward to and hype beasted the next Apple device, while being kind of *meh* over android launches (Apple markets itself so much better than Android devices). In my opinion, this is where android has the oppurtunity to become more of a general public interest.

    If it is Vanilla, the average will be disappinted. But those that know what they are getting will most likely be fired up. Does the "average" user even know what's coming? Do they know what to be disappointed about? These things seem to drop out of the sky with little notice.

    The Nexus devices I believe are aimed more at the rooting audience then most phones. Google knows that there are many developers and consumers that want this exact type of phone, (vanilla, unlocked bootloader, and first with new os's). I for one am not really buying into the hype. This will be my next phone, but everyone who is getting involved with the hype is setting themselves up to be dissapointed. Take the hype on the Bionic for example. The hype on that phone was rediculous, and now there are so many dissapointed users when its still an amazing device!

    I'd sure like to know if the Nexus phones have had big sales numbers? That would tell a bit of the story. I hate to say it but I have grown to like the fancy Sense and Blur visual stuff also. I'll get that Prime if it really wows me tho!

    It makes perfect sense...hype it up to an audience who is totally oblivious to the actual upcoming items. People will buy based on hype and possibly then buy out of pocket for the next hype. Excellent for making money I think.

    I still believe that one must take every comment for face value and get the device that you want. No one should purchase something based on a cool commercial or simply because so and so said it is awesome. That isn't information it is opinion. I think that is why we have such haters running around.
