I am getting the S2 this week, so I am hoping the Galaxy Journal/Note doesn't come out before the second half of 2012 when LTE is supposed to be rolled out.

I think its great for Sprint. If they would have released the same Nexus, it would have been too late and out dated. To get a upgraded version is a brilliant move. This will be an option. I'm still waiting to see more info on GS3.

I think an upgraded Nexus is good, not only for sprint but the fact that Google and Samsung recognize the consumers displeasure and improve on the things that needed to be work out to make this device better.Shows that they are listening and care.

If only Samsung would only put in new radios that get good reception. I'm talking CDMA, 3G, WIFI and GPS. I gave Samsung a chance with the Nexus S against my better judgement. This phone sucks. Doesnt get signal for crap and drops calls. Takes minutes to connect to GPS, moving or not. Sometimes it wont even connect to GPS. One thing about HTC is they used awesome radios and rarely if ever dropped a call.

I'm sure the Galaxy Nexus has the same crappy radios that most if not all recent Samsung phones have.

I really want this phone but not sure if being unhappy a few weeks later is worth it.

Yea, I'm definitely not impressed with Samsung's radios either. My HTC EVO and Palm Pre get great signal where (in the same locations) my Samsung struggles. I want to like Samsung... But, This is why my future phones will be HTC or Motorola.

MOTO,HTC,or LG would be cool w/me.SAMSUNG has had their turn +1 in the NEXUS seat,time for a new,fresh look @ the GOOGLE/ANDROID flagship.

With each new Samsung product I have noticed the radios have gotten better. From the Moment, to the Epic, then the Nexus, and now the Epic Touch. I hear some people having trouble with their GPS on their ET4G but mine locks almost immediately. I rarely have 1 or 3 bars of service, it's always 4 or more.

Maybe I haven't spend enough time with an HTC or Motorola device to see a BIG difference. But then again, I don't want to. Where Samsung may lack some in radios it makes up for in camera quality, battery life, thinness, and screen tech. IMO

Not to knock what you are saying, but aren't they after all, phones? The reception should be top priority. They are communication devices first and foremost. I would never own a Samsung after reading countless numbers of posts/threads about how much the radios are sub par. I understand that all the manufacturers have issues. No denying that.... But a phone really should work as a phone, right?

Mine works as a phone when I need it to though. I have never had such a bad signal that I couldn't make a call or lock on to GPS, ever. I can't even remember the last time I had a dropped call. Sure, the radio may not be as great as Motorola's, but it still works and works great for me. To each their own though.

I had high hopes for the gnex when I hard they had hired cyanogenmod devs to help with design/software issues. I wish I was comfortable buying a Samsung, but just too many horror stories.


Glad you're one of the lucky ones, though

It does seem Sammy is getting better, the newer iterations of the G2S and the Nexus attest to that. I still don't trust them, however. I really hope Moto brings new phones to Sprint. Yes, Moto's cameras are not as good as those on Samsung phones, but battery life, radios, and call quality are rock solid.

Looks like they are trying to get rid of their Nexus S4G stock. Free for new lines on Sprint.com. Hopefully this is an indicator of a imminent Galaxy Nexus Launch!

One area I think motorola needs to work on is their hardware design.
Motorola needs to bring some elegance to their phone and a more gracefully refined style. To me all their phone have that same robust look. If Samsung start to bring that brush metal look to their phones like the Samsung 7.7 tablet, it will draw more attention.

I want to like Samsung. I have an NS4G that I really like overall. Unlocking the bootloader is a breeze However, in "spotty" areas, our EVO 4G, EVO 3G, and LG Optimus receive more consistent signal/data than my NS4G.

here in Dallas/Ft Worth area.. there are a lot of low/bad areas in coverage.. and my phone must be a phone when i need it. my evo can make calls... never had it not be able to call. this is why i have generally stayed away from samsung.

I really want the galaxy NOTE....hoping they changed the radios in the sprint version. or i will have to wait for a big 5.X inch from HTC or Moto

Yeah, I kinda hope the rumors end up true. 4470 processor, possibly a better camera.

A phone with model number SPH-L710 passed through WIFI certification earlier today. The Epic Touch is model number SPH-D710, so it could be a re-hashed Epic Touch or possibly something better. Definitely hoping for something better.

Speaking of the Note, I was at bestbuy earlier today and held one in my hand. It's huge! It dwarfs 4.5 in phones with ease. But surprisingly its manageable.

Or is it an SGSII, Epic Touch w/ LTE? (perhaps the "L" in the model number represents LTE)

Samsung Epic Touch LTE coming soon to Sprint??? - Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

If So, I hope they put an HD screen (720p) on it, too.

It's possible, but just because the model number is 710 doesn't mean it will be a re-hash. The Original Epic 4G is D700 and the Galaxy Nexus is L700...sooo it could be anything...

Yeah Sprint has been pretty quiet about the Galaxy Nexus. I really want to know about the spec bump. I also can't wait to find out more about the GS3.

If it has a better camera I am sold! Still holding out for the Note though. Went and looked at one at ATT, big but sooo beautiful.

The Note is awesome. I thought it would be too big. It's very manageable. I'll pass on it but at least I know I can see myself with a phone that big in the future.

I don't think we'll be hearing much of anything during MWC. Sprint's prime time has typically been at CTIA, which isn't until like early May (I think)?

By then, we should definitely already have the GNex release date.

I am a big fan of Sprint, because I think they are the least guilty of trying to get more money out of customers with ridiculous rates for subpar service...AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile could never be OK for me because I use a lot of data. Streaming, downloading, uploading, sharing things with friends, etc.

While I'm in a very small group of users who uses their smartphones like it is a laptop, but 2GB per month to me is not even worth paying for and would make it hard for me to not let my bill skyrocket.

So personally Sprint for me is the phone company I want to succeed and grow, and I really hope this year they continue getting great phones. But instead of having several 4G phones that just show up I hope they will work on a few specific models and have a couple of flagship phones that stand out.

I dislike their new emphasis on the iPhone, but it can be good for them. If they are going to focus on the iPhone then I hope they will at least do something unique. Maybe they can have the first 4G/LTE iPhone.

The EVO line, which made me fall in love with the world of smartphones is something I hope Sprint keeps alive. HTC's EVO line put them on the map. I hope they will develop a new EVO as impressive as the first, as well as an EVO tablet that can be as impressive as the Galaxy Tab or iPad.

And now that I have an Epic, I'm starting to like Samsung but there are so many to keep track of. Sprint and Samsung should only do two or three high-end phones this year. And Sprint can keep their "Epic" phone line alive this way as well, but they should do something to set Sprint's GS3 apart.

the htc one x is going to ATT, but instead of getting the quad core processor like the rest of the world, the US will get the dual core snapdragon s4 because of LTE. US takes a back seat, again, smh.

at least the camera is supposed to be unbelieable. my guess is the htc one brand will go to all carriers ala samsung galaxy.

Still waiting on some more real world test and benchmarks. I don't care about the number of cores, just performance. And in the benchmarks thus far. The new S4 is a really nice chip. Also has LTE built in which should give better battery life also.

The Tegra 3 while is has that "quad-core" hype, just hasn't impressed me thus far.

I am wondering what this means for the Evo line-up. HTC has said they are unifying their phones under the "One" moniker, and that all their carrier partners have agreed not to muck with the naming convention (hence why AT&T's version is just the One X). The One X is also exclusive to AT&T, and the One S is going to T-Mobile.

Where does that leave Sprint and the Evo? Will there be a fourth One phone coming out? Why not announce it with the rest?

I hope so as well, that or something similar to that quad core optimus LG has would be awesome...

I think that Sprint should get one of the ones because it's going to be HTCs flagship device, so I'm thinking it would replace the EVO? Only thing I really don't dig about that phone is the battery size, between that and my experience with HTCs being battery hogs I dunno if I would get it personally, it really is a bummer when you have to recharge your phone seemingly all day...

The HTC One uses Qualcomm's S4 processor so battery life will hopefully be much, much better.

I rather we not get the One S or V, whichever the mid-tier model was. Sprint should hold out for something much better.

The way I see it, Sprint really needs to release the Galaxy Nexus ASAP. Rumors are the GS3 is coming at summertime. Add the fact that there might be HTC One variant(EVO?) coming out in between. Let's spread out the goodies Sprint.

Sprint said earlier that April-July(I think July) they are going to be pushing hard.

This makes sense, as they would want any new (and newly revealed) flagship phones to run on their LTE network. Given that Sprint's LTE won't go live until late spring at the earliest, I expect a slew of announcements landing at the same time.

Still curious about Qualcomm's S4 chip in real-world situations.

Likewise. I'm really wanting the Sprint GNex, but I must admit that I am at least relatively curious about the next rendition of the EVO line.
