    We are all excited and want this phone, but if you step back and really look at it the only stand out things are the HD screen and ics.

    Hardware wise its fairly lacking.

    1.5 dual core and 1gb of ram is lacking? NFC as well. How is it lacking at all?

    He said hardware, not software. The hardware in this phone is 1.5. The software downclocks it.

    The omap cpu used in the nexus is a 1.5, underclocked to 1.2 for retail.

    Compared to what? When it's released it will have the best CPU in current phones, what other "hardware" are you talking about? The GPU? It's overclocked to nearly twice the speed of the Razr's. First phone to use NFC in the US. A large 1850mAh battery.

    Which hardware are you speaking of?

    Not a troll, going to get the nexus providing it gets decent reception.

    Just meant hardware wise its average now. No removable storage,Fm radio,etc.

    Everyone is blinded by the fact that it has ics.

    It's not a bad phone, just not the super phone everyone was expecting.

    I'm sure the Rezound camp will welcome you. Plus, free headphones!

    What makes it a great phone besides the specs is that its a Nexus!

    It is a developer friendly phone. If none of that is interesting to you then it may not be the right phone for you. It was a very fair question. Not every phone is the right fit.
