First I'd like to state this is not directed to any particular person or poster. But I don't get all the complaining about the phone? I mean, it's as if everyone expected the device to be 'the best thing to come out since sliced bread'. So you think the volume is 'to low' on the speaker? Download volume+ and bump it up +2, +4 and enjoy your loud speaker. Complaining about the battery life to me, is crazy in some sorts. What do you expect out of a phone like this? 20+ hours of solid video streaming, web browsing, texting, calling, downloading and installing apps and you only drop 20% battery? To me people put unrealistic expectations on things that in reality, aren't really that possible. Sure others may get better battery, and I'm sure there is.... but give me a break. Get a car charger, get an extra cable to plug the thing in at your office and if you can't 'charge it at work' or have a job where you can't do this type of thing (manufacturing plant, fast food, etc., I am in no way downgrading these job positions, I've had both and all types of jobs) then you shouldn't be using it that much anyway, except on breaks etc. My battery doesn't drain hardly any at all when it's just sitting there. My battery life is great, granted I'm on wi-fi most of the time and I'm probably not considered a 'heavy user'... but still. To often these days people are just expecting something that's unrealistic out of a phone, that is in reality, a phone afterall right? I went into the Gnex with an open mind that if the battery life isn't great, I'm fine with that, I will adapt my style of charging a phone, dealing with whatever to make it work out. If I'm at the office, I can sling it on the usb, home usb, if I'm traveling.. car charger.... whatever the case might be... usually you can grab a charge. Then again, I'm a simple Alabama boy so... maybe I'm not exposed to some of the type usage some of you experience, it's just to me, we expect to much from a device or demand in our minds so much out of a device, when we should just learn to change ourselves and our habits if we demand so much out of our devices. I mean heck, if I don't keep my laptop plugged in and watch dvd's etc etc... the battery drains fast on it too. Everyone was fully aware, made aware and knew that this was the first release of ICS anyway. It's a dev phone. Somethings should just be taken for granted giving these circumstances. Things aren't going to be perfect with the software (however I've had zezro issues). With that comes, in what we should see, faster updates from google to fix things. If that doesn't happen, you still should have known this from the get-go. The camera is fine for me... it's a cell phone. I take pictures for facebook... simple camera stuff, random shots of my dog, a sunset, whatever. If you expected something different, then maybe you should look into getting an actual dslr and start toting it around in your pocket (snickers out loud in my head). It's a CELL PHONE people. Again, to much expectations from a device that does something, that's it's secondary purpose. I haven't seen anyone stating before this device was released that this thing would be taking dslr type images. It's a 5MP camera, which we were made aware of WAY before launch date. So what did you have built up in your own mind, that Saumsung would somehow develop a 5MP camera that would take images as well as a Nikon D3 with a $3,000 lens on it? Yes, I know other phones have better cameras, but even still... the phone takes pictures just fine for what I would consider it's use for... a cell phone camera. I'm sorry for the rant, it's just I've been reading all these post and it just seems that in this day in age, we just expect to much out of something and when it don't live up to what we've built up in our minds we just trash the entire thing all together. Before release, there was all kind of begging for information, you got the information well before launch. It's time we've started making ourselves realize that we should try to look at things for what they are and stop trying to expect something to be perfect, when in reality, we had the information before hand and should have realized some of the flaws the thing would have. My phone isn't perfect, that elusive device will never be made. Hate to burst your bubble. The "I'm leaving Android and waiting for Apple iOS5, because this sucks" type guys will get their beloved IOS5 and start crying about something. It's just the way it is, I understand that... but come on guys. Look at the device with REALISTIC expectations and try to adapt yourself some to the new phone too. Again, sorry for the rant.
