This topic was inspired by Jon Rettinger over at Techno Buffalo for his latest video, "It's Never A Good Time to Buy an Android Phone". First off, if it's not obvious by now, I'm a complete and utter Android fan. I don't believe I could ever own an iDevice unless it was more open sourced. Jailbreaking does not cut it. I assume most people clicking this thread are Android fans and/or loyalists that would agree with me on my statement above. That being said, is there any common agreement that manufacturers really need to slow down on making phones? Phones come out so fast now that when a new device comes out, the next month, week, or even the next day, it could be old news. Being a fan of Android means you are probably going to come across some phone envy at point or another. The sad thing is, you can get this sometimes with almost the same exact phone! Motorola just released the DROID RAZR barely even 2 and 1/2 months ago. And guess whats coming out now? The RAZR MAXX. Why? Why could they not have just made a nice slim phone with the 3300ma battery right from the get-go? Why do this to consumers that JUST bought the phone? The Droid RAZR is now just $199 leaving people that just bought the phone almost wasting $100 bucks on what's now yesterdays old RAZR. Unless you feel that buying a purple phone is cooler to show off then having a phone that will last 24hrs. Before this, we got the "mighty" Bionic in September that everyone wanted and that we've been waiting for since January of 2011 that seemed to come with quite a hefty amount of bugs, that gets topped just TWO months later again, now a forgotten phone by most people. And let's not forget about the Droid 3 that is now 49.99 at Verizon just 6months shy of it's release. For some reason, they couldn't wait to just made the Droid 3 come with 4G instead. Motorola isn't the only manufacturer doing this. Samsung as well. We have the Galaxy S II out in the USA now, and shortly after, the same phone but with LTE on AT&T. Oh, and the Skyrocket they have.. now coming out with the Skyrocket HD. LTE is a big update.. but why not just have all this stuff right off? Why release the phone one month, and 3months later release the phone with slight upgrades? Android phones come out left and right. What Apple does do right, is they release one phone, and the 6months to a year later will release another phone with a lot more new features OS wise and spec wise - even the iPhone 4 & 4s. Despite the 4s supposedly getting released as a letdown, look how well it sold. iPhone users know that they get to cherish their beloved phones up to a year before another product comes out. Android users? We have leaks.. but it's all up in the air from there. Us Galaxy Nexus users got the phone because we know it's going to be supported in our 2year contracts by Samsung and with the already amazing Dev community here, on Rootzwiki, XDA, and so on. But, not everyone like the majority of us on these forums are "nerdy" or "geeky". Some casual phone users aren't gonna care that another phone will be out in 2months. Others.. definitely do. We have this.. and supposedly in May the Galaxy S3 is coming out that spec wise at least, pretty much kills this phone. We've heard rumors about this before the Nexus was even out so we know what we were getting into, but in the back of your head.. you may wish you would have waited. At the same time though, in another 3-6months the "Galaxy Nexus 2" or the "Galaxy S3 Super SkyRocket 4D" with a 24mp camera may be out and we fell left out once again. So the questions comes, should phone manufactures slow down? Or do you even care?
