Default Second Gen?

Did Samsung sneak in some hardware updates to the GNEX line? I tried this phone when it first came out and it was awful. Bluetooth and cell reception was horrible as was battery life. Now with my newly bought GNEX that had (updated) on the box... I found the device to be a dream. Good battery life, reception and no random reboots (after i swapped out a faulty battery).

Probably... As components got cheaper I'm sure they changed a little since the phone has almost been out a year

afaik, There only two hardware versions 09 and 10, both have been out since near release. And I don't think there is a physical difference (I think the .10 ones are made in China, but that's a guess on my part)

They have upgraded the firmware for the radios and software which showed a improvement for some people.

As the above stated it's probably the updated firmware.
