One of the big reasons we all chose the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was how it was going to continue to get updates from Verizon/Samsung and have tremendous dev support until your 2year contract is up. However, if the Samsung Galaxy SIII(3) is released on Verizon, will you be interested?
First of all, I love my Nexus. As someone said in another thread, I'm still in my "honeymoon" stage with the phone as are many other members. But the Nexus definitely could have come out better as it is lacking in areas. A 5mp camera? It has amazing "no shutter-lag" speed and if you know anything about cameras you know Mega Pixels aren't everything.. but how is it they could not have made it at least 8mp's? It's hard to boast about your new phone when it has some of the same hardware as phones 3years prior to it.
No sdCard? Cloud storage this, cloud storage that, one of the main reasons we all had over the i*hone was the ability to brag that once your internal memory was up, you could have 16-64more gigs expandable storage via expandable storage. Cloud storage is not yet the future and poses problems still.. if your data drops, your kind of screwed. I still have 15gigs left on my phone, but that extra memory would be nice to have if I ever hit that "1gig of memory" left.
The Samsung Galaxy SIII is rumored to have an HD Super Amoled display fashioned with a 1280 x 720 powerful resolution(we can guess gorilla glass), 2GB RAM and 32GB with (hopefully) an sdcard slot, 2GHz duel-core processor(we can only hope it has an amazing battery similar to the MAXX too if it's going to hold that bad boy), a whopping 12mp camera, and 3D technology which we assume you can disable if you don't like it - but it's nice to have just in case you do and want to show off to your friends. Not to mention the latest and greatest version of Android OS.
With that, and if we're able to unlock the bootloader and it's on Verizon, will you consider buying it? It's pretty tempting to say the least and I'm sure this is going to get quite a bit of dev support as well I would assume.
I for one still have upgrades left to be able to get this, and others may too. Others may not so this phone isn't even an option. But if you're like me or willing to pay full price, would you already upgrade from your Nexus to this? Or do you even care?
If you love tech like I do, that may be all the reason to buy the phone regardless.
