    1) non-removable battery

    I'd still get it. Even if the battery is small.

    Pretty funny how the Note 2 can make the GNex look so tiny!

    I'll consider it, never more than an hour away from a plug. Have 14 days to trade it in or get my bucks back.

    I've heard that analogy many times & it's a bit off. The bugatti veyron is probably a closer comparison. I understand at top speeds, that burns through its tank of gas in like 20 minutes or something, but hey, it also goes over 250!

    Still, the gtr is sweet. I've owned two nissans & they were great cars.

    Still waiting for that almost perfect phone. If this had a sd card slot & 3000 mah battery, this would have been it.

    It's all about trying to make more money from the consumer. Unlimited data plans are on their way out, cloud storage and 4g on their way in. So spec the phones to force the consumer to chew through their data quicker and pay overages. Not cool tech companies, not cool.

    Too bad you can't if you don't have unlimited data.

    2 reasons I'm shying away: 1. Do Not want to give up unlimited (even though my sister's friend supposedly got his grandfathered unlimited plan back by complaining that the tiered didn't work for him. Feel like he may have got an extremely nice rep) 2. I am a broke 16 year old with no upgrades available :/

    I can deal with the storage since I already carry around an OTG hub for my N7 and I've been dealing with the GNexus's horrid battery life so..

    Wow, finally a phone from HTC that would make me drop the Rezound. People don't like the non removable battery but I can't remember the last time that I needed to pull mine out.

    Pulling out the battery is not the issue.. Married to a charger will be the reason :D

    Still cannot believe that's all the battery power that thing is packing, and no SD slot? Shame such an awesome device has been utterly ruined by not creating a total package.
