Galaxy Nexus vs Nexus 7 vs Galaxy S3
I made another thread but it got buried with no replies, hence this one.
I have an Incredible S, and I'm bored of it. I want something with a bit more 'oomph'. I looked at the iPhone 5 - as I have an MacBook Pro and an iPad 3, so tied into the Apple ecosystem - but found it to be a huge let down. I'm also getting sick of iOS, and I feel Android is surpassing iOS on so many levels.
I'm on a budget as I'm still in university - student loans etc. - but I don't want to get something that's going to be outdated in a years time. I would also prefer stock Android, I'm not really a fan of companies overlays. I have launchers etc all over my Incredible S so it resembles stock ICS.
So, my question is;
Should I get a Galaxy Nexus or wait for the new Nexus that should come out at the end of the year? Or should I go for an S3 instead, even though it uses TouchWiz? OR should I just stick to my Incredible S and get a Nexus 7 (even though I have an iPad) and tether it to my phone?
The Nexus 7 option is there, because I'm finding myself using my iPad less and less because of the size of it, whereas the Nexus 7 is such a nice size to carry around, tethering it to my phone would give me the best of both worlds. But at the same time, it would be so much easier to be able to do everything from the one device i.e. Galaxy Nexus/Galaxy S3.
