    Nexus will probably be my next phone until the Samsung Galaxy NoteSamsung GALAXY Note - Samsung Mobile comes out. Samsung will probally start shipping the phones by the end of next week, usually when a manufacture shows their product like they just did, it is already sitting in boxes in a warehouse somewhere ready for shipping.

    The note looks cool I'll admit, but it may be a wee bit *too* big. Even if it isn't, what about the GPU issue? Does it have the exynos? If so, does it play well with LTE? Also, no ICS, though of course that could change.

    Does the Nexus have a removable battery?

    My analogy makes perfect sense...poster stated that unless you put your phone in a case that you do not care about it. That is like saying that if you drive your car (cause damage COULD happen) that you do not care about it.

    Regardless, my original point is simply that I see no reason why they cannot use decent materials to build these phones.

    +1 on both...not cause I treat those any different, just because I am careful with my stuff.

    GPU issues?

    I don't think the note is coming to Verizon.

    The Motorola Droid does not have Motoblur it is pure Android. Even the Moto phones with blur get updates. D2, D3, D2G, DX, DX2 and DroidPro all have GB to my knowledge, and the original Droid made it to Froyo... I don't know what more you could want! Honestly they have supported their phones the most on Verizon (other than the Devour).

    Looking at the specs of the "Note" and also the "Exynos 4210" it would be assumed that it has that for its processor. As for it running on ICS that just came out vs. when the "Note" was introduced ICS wasn't available and Samsung hopefully will try running it on the "Note" and will be an OTA update when released. It will be released in Europe first just not sure if it will make it here but my fingers are crossed.:D

    that would make them even more expensive and many people already think they are expensive enough even with a contract...also keep the arguing to a minimum, id hate to see mods reprimand people over whether phone cases mean you care about your phone, its personal preference

    OH. I thought you where referring to the Mali-400 in the note having an issue. Sorry for the confusion.

    Hands on reviews are starting to pop up on the web and it looks like the following is CONFIRMED: (sorry for no sources... laptop battery about dead)

    1. YES: Removable battery with SIM card slot
    2. NO: HMDI port
    3. NO: Expandable SD memory card slot

    In my opinion, these make the Razr look more appealing (slightly).

    I just don't know what they are going to do about the four buttons on the bottom of all the other phones when they get upgraded to Android 4.0???
