Default My Ideal Android Phone

I want a Nexus 4 (screen size, CPU, no bloatware), but I also want:

- T-Mobile WiFi Calling (this is essential for being able to use the phone in my house)
- Removable battery (I need a spare and I don't want to deal with an external battery pack)
- MicroSD slot (It's insane to have to pay up-front for the memory in the phone. I want to be able to add memory later when it's cheaper)

I wish HTC would build this phone. I've bought HTC phones for years and I really like HTC's attitude. They are developer friendly. I like HTC Sense.

I hate Samsung. They are too slow with updates. They don't respect developers. Their add-on apps are horrible.

John

Not all of the Samsung devices are like that. None of the Samsung Google devices contain manufacturer specific modifications to Android, and they are specifically geared towards the developer. The founder of CyanogenMod, Steve Kondik, was hired by Samsung just last year to be on their mobile software development team. I think they do indeed care about developers.

That's exactly why CM is supporting Samsung phones...
