Difference between old GNex and new?
I had an initial Galaxy Nexus that I preordered and used as soon as it came out. My wife got one several months later (sometime in April). There is a clear difference between the look of the screen of the two devices. I could hold them side by seen and my wife's GNex has darker greys and blacks at ALL brightness settings. This actually made the viewing experience better. My phone all of a sudden seemed washed out. I had always believed that my screen looked great, way better than I expected or had been used to previously.
I have sold both of these devices and my Nexus 7 to dive head first into Windows Phone 8. With integration at my job and the need for ANYONE at my company to know and understand troubleshooting for the device I decided to make the leap. I am, however, considering adding another line and picking up a device to use for "fun". I've already invested into Android, so it just makes sense to pick that up. While I love WP8, there is still a lack of full support from app devs. While I did think about getting an iPhone, since I was already familiar with Android... I really don't want to use an iPhone or get stuck in a two-year contract with one.
Having a backup phone is great and I really did love my Galaxy Nexus. What I am wondering is what other differences might exist that I was unaware of between the later versions of the phone. Have we seen posts claiming that earlier or later version had certain issues that another did not? I only ever used my wife's phone long enough to really back it up, wipe it and prepare it for sale. For the money I think it makes the most sense to go with a Nexus, I find that the more expensive S3 is just far too unwieldy for me. What a difference .15 inches makes...
So.... pros or cons to older or newer?
