I know I'm not the only one thinking this, but looks like I'm the only one who has the courage to admit this: I thought that people who were calling this device a developer phone were exagerating.... Before buying it I was thinking: "Come on, those adds google put on youtube about the gnex are definitely not targeted towards developers" I thought: "Wow a phone with stock android, future updates ensured, and those high end specs!..... Bought" The thing is that hardware wise this device sucks. And I'm not talking about the CPU and the ram (that's the hardware that matters for the developers, and the nexus is fast, we know it). But i'm talking about the important hardware! The one that matters on a smartphone for normal people like me. ..as I said: I'm not trying to troll. I just want to talk with people who have my same thoughts BUILD QUALITY: feels too cheap and it definitely doesn't give you that "built to last" feeling in your hand that Nokia or Motorola phones give you. But hey: you get a curved glass and super thin body... ANTENNAS (GPS, WIFI, CELLULAR): while on my gsm galaxy nexus the 2g and 3g antennas are quite decent ( still not comparable to Motorolas or Nokia though) The Wi-Fi and the GPS are super weak in comparison to even low end smartphones made by Nokia Moto or Htc. DISPLAY: worst 720p screen on a smartphone ever. First being a pentile display, ON YOUR EYES it's not a true 720p. Take a look to an IPS 720p display, THAT is sharpness. Though on paper it is 720p, so its perfect for developers who need to test apps on 720p screen. White color tone usually looks perfectly white on every phone, until you compare it to another phone side by side that has better whites. On the galaxy nexus you find yourself constantly thinking that what you are looking at, is not pure while. SPEAKER: probably a very cheap speaker, just like all the "hidden parts" on this phone and all the hidden parts on Samsung phones in general. Don't ever compare it to a Nokia side by side or you'll cry. (Why is the volume so lower on notifications and on YouTube? LOL Google) VIBRATION: if you are used to the amazing vibration feedback that Nokia and HTC devices give you, hearing and feeling the galaxy nexus vibrate will be a pain. It just looks like Samsung didn't spend a penny on the vibration system on this device. [Small story: I had a GS2 some months ago, one day I came back home and threw it on the bed, it did even had a case on... From that day the vibration became much weaker, almost nonexisting]... just for the lols That said let's come to the part where we all agree: Stock android is awesome and developers are probably having a much easier time working with this device Its also really cheap now. Let's not forget that.
