    I see verizon is offering the nexus for $50. Is it worth it or should I still get the s3?

    I have the Nexus and having a hard time deciding also about getting a S3. From what I've gathered on the forums if you can root and rom the Nexus is better, but if your going to run stock go with the S3. I can't understand how to root ( I guess I'm dumb) so I'm thinking hard about the S3...

    If I could buy my Nexus over again at the release price, I'd probably do it again. Love this phone

    my boss at work got the note 2 a week ago (his brother works for tmobile, don't think it's been released yet here). despite the fact that he has huge hands, he doesn't like it. says it's way too big lol

    nice phone though, i was playing around with it.

    hoever, as far as rooting, i don't think there's anything yet for the note 2. even the note 1 doesn't have many roms available, especially compared the to GN.

    The Nexus by far is the best phone for rooting.
