    Nothing special. I'm more impressed with the HTC One X.

    Is it me or does it look like sammy just touch-wizzed all over ics. That phone looks ugly... stock ics ftw . Htc atleast kept it somewhat in the ball park. Touchwiz looks cartoony....


    And I am curious if vzw will actually get the quad core exynos... cuz The version we get in the states always seem different from the international version. I would not be surprised it it gets the same processor thats in the nexus or get another processor other than the exynos.

    "s"-voice really are they trying to get sued. oh well I must admit I like a lot of the features. But touchwiz just spoiled it for me. But for those digging it I think you gonna get a good device overall.

    I like it a lot.

    love the video thing where it resizes and keeps playing while I do other stuff on the phone. I'd watch a lot more videos if my nexus did that. hope it works for netflix type of apps too.


    The wireless charging is something I like too.

    I do worry about the bloat thou. but will it be unlock able and romable?

    I have htc friends but really I don't think I'd consider spending my money on a htc. just not for me. I will be keeping my nexus till my upgrade. but my girl has an upgrade due soon and has come to completely hate her bolt over the last few months. (she almost threw it at the wall the other night lol) so this might be her next phone is she can wait that long and it comes to verizon.

    US version is supposed to get the dual core S4 Snapdragon. Same processor in the One X.

    Yeah, the S4 is still a beast. The SIII hardware is amazing. I'm extremely disappointed that this is still packing hardware keys though, oh well.

    Touchwiz wise? Oh dear. Looks like Samsung spread their ugly icons all over stock ICS. The menus look ridiculous. One thing I will say is I didn't see a single hint of lag. The exynos seems to really fly.

    Probably the same glass the Nexus is packing which is more than adequate.
