    All of this is in my own mind but I wager it to be true... :biggrin:

    Google/Samsung Engineering: "Boss, we can make this kick-a** phone with all the best features: rear 8mp camera, front facing 2mp camera, BT 4.0 for less battery draw...and of course, ICS and a nice, large screen."

    Boss: "No way you idiot. Since this is the first ICS phone with the largest screen ever offered, we don't need to put the other goodies in there. We'll sell millions without them. Just figure out the point where we'd turn buyers off and use that. After a few months, we'll change the cameras out, upgrade the BT and we'll make another couple $Zillion."

    ...Hence, the shatty camera MP and old school BT.

    I'll be waiting for version 2. :happy3:

    So, what do you say? Just for the record, I'm not trying to p!ss anyone off--honestly. Just throwing out some food for thought and my true position... Am interested in what others think

    I can't agree with you on the camera. I tested skype out with my wife today. She said to me ... geeze you need to shave I can see your whiskers with that thing.

    Lol OK wait. Except Google doesn't release phones every month like HTC and moto.

    Also I dont think Google leaves things behind like other companies. They release the best they can
    They haven't even marketed this phone.

    I would love that....but i sure cant see Google releasing a Nexus developer phone with a non-removable battery and that seems to be the only type of phone Moto has been releasing.

    I wish people would take the time to understand what Megapixels actually do on a camera.

    Aint that the truth. But I dont see it happening. Marketing victims tend to stay that way.

    But in all honesty, I wish you luck with the GNex 2. I am sure it would be a bad ass phone and I hope you are happy with it.

    They are just phones, and there are tons of the available, get what works best for you.

    For me, I tried out most all of the current crop of superphones, and I believe I will be sticking with the Nex. It is easily the best phone I have ever handled.

    Why do you need more than 5MP camera on a phone? You planning on printing monster banners from your phone? Megapixelz aren't everything.
