    See I think the S2 blows the Nexus away. I love the camera on the Nexus, but there are tons of reviews and things I have seen that show other way around.

    But I understand the more MP argument and the fact that most people think more MP on a small sensor is bad, but if you're sensor is good then its a moot point.

    I hope they show some sample images though. I just don't want people to dismiss this camera because of the previous argument.

    Probably similar to what's coming out on some point and shoots. Automatically snaps a pic when all eyes are open after you press the shutter.

    Woah Touchwiz 4.0 - tons of great new features.

    You can take a video, resize it and float the window over an email, web browsing, etc.

    Oh I wouldn't dismiss it. An incrimental upgrade from 5 to 8 with the same size sensor wouldn't be a bad thing, slightly worse is possible as is slightly better if the sensor is better.

    Best Photo is it takes 8 pictures in burst mode and selects the "best" mode based on its criteria.

    Also the sensor is back-lit illuminated for better low light performance.

    Not unless Verizon does something really freaking stupid (above and beyond their normal shenanigans).

    2,100mAh batter - why can't people follow Motorola and use 3,000+ mAh batteries.

    I see.

    Isn't the Nexus back-lit?

    To get that size battery would most likely mean designing it into the phone as non-removable...lots of Android purist won't like that. I would love it. Give me a battery in the 3,000 mAh range and you won't hear a peep out of me complaining about it being built in and not removable.

    I'd be OK with it as long as I could do heavy usage and make it through the work day.

    Per chipworks.com
    "Samsung shows off its vertical integration here by using one of its own sensors in the primary camera. In this case, the S5K4E5YA 5 Mp, 1.4
