PLEASE... RELEASE... A NEXUS 5... I BEG YOU GOOGLE.Reply
U.S. and UK on November 13, where it will sell contract-free for $299.Since when did the UK use dollars?
Other than that, there are two things that piss me off about this:
1)No microSD slot. It's stupid, and probably wouldn't even cost $0.05 per phone.
2)1280x768 still seems to be much the same resolution (1366x768) as comes on every notebook under $800 / 17". Please give us at least HD+ on a 15" screen. It's not that hard.
I know #2 isn't about the phone as such, but it irritates me that it even counts as "HD".

While I agree with your point; technically 768lines is HD.
Basically everything 720p and above qualifies.
Then of course, the first 4k displays are shipping. So, we want that next :-)
Is it pentile or not? Whoever came up with pentile needs some kind of beating.Reply
IndignantSkepticIs it pentile or not? Whoever came up with pentile needs some kind of beating.Pentile isn't bad when the resolution of the screen is high enough. 1280x768 is high enough.Reply
This phone is okay but I don't know, I think I still prefer my Galaxy 3.
IndignantSkepticIs it pentile or not? Whoever came up with pentile needs some kind of beating.Only Samsung uses Pentile, and the screen is made by LG and it is probably the best display on the smartphone market currently(same as optimus g screen), go read reviews on the optimus g screenReply
and samsung had a very good reason to use pentile and it was quite smart of them to do so, I wont explain why though it would take me too long
The Nexus One was amazing, The Nexus S was a very nice evolution of the original, The Galaxy Nexus was somewhat disappointing but over all not actually a bad device, Lets hope the Nexus 4 gets them back on track.Reply
Looking good so far but I'm still not anticipating anything looking much better to me than my S3 for a while to come.
I just wish they'd release these for Virgin Mobile.Reply
wannabepro - I bough my last Nexus phone from amazon and went contract free - much better and cheaper over two years.Reply
