    Since my Galaxy Nexus is now banned, should I get the S3?

    Who cares if it's banned, means the owners own a real gem now. Still more than happy with my Nexus:hail:

    I say if you like to tinker with your phone (rooting and such) then get the GNex. If you are a stock user who just wants the latest flagship phone, get the GS3.

    I would say G3 it's the newest and might not have all the problem that the nexus has. Like Mic problem and data drop

    The GNex will continue to have the best developer support for at least the next 2 years. If ur into tinkering then it is a no brainer! If ur just a regular user then get whatever phone fits ur style!

    Am I the only one who feels more badass carrying around a banned phone?

    And I would say the SIII honestly. It will have plenty of devs being the biggest Android phone of the year (and an unlocked bootloader) which are sure to give it JB in a good amount of time. That with it's faster processor and and 2gigs of RAM.. Project Butter is going to look so good.

    Google play store has already stopped selling the Gnex. I'm wondering when or if Verizon will stop selling them.

    I'm curious will or should Verizon allow us to upgrade to the S3 since our phone is banned. I'm loving the Jellybean smoothness
