    I don't know.... I think I would have gone with the Note dependent on two factors. How the screen looked compared to the GNex while holding it in my hand and how it felt in my hands and in my pocket. If I was satisfied with both of those, there wouldn't have been a choice to make any more.

    Edit: And by "pocket", I mean "satchel", because the size would require me to start carrying around a man-purse.

    No murses truss, I forbid that! xD

    But if people make fun of me being able to build a house with an Otterbox'd DX I'll have to go cry in a corner from the amount of insults hurled at a Gnote! ;) As it is, I'm going to have problems with insults and Gnex! ;D

    With the latest disappointments regarding the GNex for Verizon - is there another phone coming down the pike for Big Red that will show the GNex what a next-gen phone should be?

    The big disappointments I'm referring to are:

    No USB Storage Support - This means that without MicroSD slot, there is no way to offload data from the phone while on vacation without lugging a laptop
    No MicroSD - I have a 32gb class 10 card I bought for HD video
    5mp Camera - 8mp is defacto standard now and 12/14mp cameras are starting to crop up, and before the arguing about MP's, I do understand its about the sensor and not the MP count, but 5mp doesn't allow for very high res crops
    1.3mp FFC - 2mp is becoming standard and 3mp is slowly coming to market
    No HDMI out - MHL just sucks cause you now have to carry around a stupid dongle AND an HDMI cable
    Pentile Display - means that really what you're seeing is half the quality of the measured screen res
    Push back of launch now on the 4th rumor date of December 8th
    Possible Verizon only to get 16gb model
    Curved glass display is DUMB - people apparently don't understand geometry, because the phone doesn't lay flat, measuring the thickness at any one point of the phone is useless. To measure the entire profile from front to back, measure from the highest point of the front to the lowest point of the back, and you actually have a phone that is much bigger in space consumption. How many people will actually have something that fits into the empty space created from the curve in the screen? I don't know about you, but a phone in my front pocket that has a curve in it will eventually find the curve in my thigh and then I'll have this monstrous phone trying to lay horizontally in my jean pocket. Secondly, if anyone has ever tried to see a phone in a bright and glaring sunny condition, you know as well as I do that how you hold the phone and angle the screen determines what you can actually see on the screen. If there is a curve, you will be holding the phone so that you can see a portion of the screen now without being able to see the other in bright conditions.

    I'm so disappointed. I've been waiting with a Droid X for over a year, waiting for something "next-gen" to come along, but so far, all I see are minor bumps in hardware, and a new OS. Selling a phone's hardware based on the version of software is silly. Eventually, most phones will be ported in some manor, so why tout the phones features based on a software version?

    Yeah, we need the Nexus to drop so that the manufactures will start hyping their next line of devices and we can get back to dreaming about them haha

    remember you heard it from me first. verizon will release a phone that beats all of these 3 and comes with ics in quarter 1 2012. now of course if there are bugs or a drought in available bloatware at the time this could be pushed to quarter 2. but i guarentee it to be out by quarter 3 at the latest. follow me on twitter or donate and ill give you more exact dates. one date in mind is is the 16th. and since this would a thursday its a most likely date. but of course they could release on a monday which would mean it would either be earlier or later than this date. now you can take that beats as a hint or it could just be that the word fits. either way this all comes from a farce source and should be taken as such. but if it turns out to be true remember it was all me. :icon_ devil:
