Hey now, not all of us <30 year olds are empty headed
. I bought my Rugby Smart over an SII (right before the SIII came out), because I knew the Rugby could tolerate the abuse of a mechanic. I researched, weighed comparisons and even looked at the hardware before deciding.
Now, for the sake of arguement, the Nexus devices as I know them were meant to be a developers playground, not a daily device. If Google wanted to make a daily device, things like storage space would be expandable.
(Note, this excludes the capped HTC devices, stupid HTC...)
