    This looks pretty good, I might grab one. Anyone seen anything with a kickstand by chance?

    Also serves as a good reminder of how much we might be paying for our toys if it weren't for armies of robots and cheap labor. :( Should have seen how much Sony techs in Laredo, TX wanted to charge me to replace a transformer in a clock radio. :eek:

    Not to worry, some room full of geniuses at Google is already ankle-deep into hashing out next year's device. There'll be a Nexus 4S pre-release thread before the shine wears off our new phones -- just (hopefully) not as protracted as this.

    If you haven't used LTE, you're in for a ride! If the GN is at least as fast as my Bionic, I'll be thrilled. Even 3G speeds are faster than my Droid (RAM and processor probably make a huge difference)

    Most of the pre-release leaks have said battery life has been fine. If it can get me through the day away from the charger, I'll be happy. I'm finding myself just plugging it in when I get to work for now so I don't have to worry about it.

    And for that, it's my first multi-quote! :):eek:
    And, I thank this thread for showing me how to do it. First search on AF came here! I'll be adding a much older thanks to this post...

    And that's why "thanks" are worthless..

    People give them out like candy in this thread.

    Just as dumb as milestone posts now. Good job guy.

    LCD is just so awful, and the difference is even more dramatic when compared side by side with AMOLED.

    What I find most mind boggling is iPhone 4/S users going crazy about their screens... Even a Galaxy S 800x480 screen looks better, AMOLED *IS* that good. Can't wait to see the denial when I pull out a Nexus and compare them side by side.

    I think for April Fools Day 3vil should take all the thanks back.

    Has anyone checked with a Verizon store to see if they will honor the Living Social voucher if you already have a discount (NE2, Loyalty, % off accessories, etc...)????

    That would be my worry. Not being able to combine that with other offers. You can always make multiple purchases I guess if they don't allow you to combine them.

    Does it REALLY devalue all of our thanks or just 3vil's? I never really thought about it but my "God Bless You" when someone sneezes is probably worthless too.

    After looking at it more closely - I thought the exact same thing. I am going to pass :):)

    It's funny - the only step in the process I took was putting in my Gmail address (no other information), and within 30 minutes I got a gmail message saying "Someone in your family has died, and your are the sole inheritor, blah, blah, blah". It is an obvious inheritance scam, but I thought the coincidence was odd to say the least. I've never gotten anything like that in the past.

    I know these are bashing the iPhone, but it's almost like Samsung is trying to steer us away from the Nexus:

    #stopwaiting

    If only, Samsung. If only.

    I see a lot of people talk about loyalty credit on top of NE2. I have one of those cards too, but I would tend to think they are just NE2. Look at the bottom right of the coupon and see it says "NE2#." Mine says "NE25", thus meaning "New Every 2, $50"

    sorry if this has been addressed. I am just speculating that it is the same, as other have too.

    We go to ALL of the other GNex threads - depending on what concerns, issues, questions, you may have. :)

    Some people think this is the only thread, but there are dozens of others :D

    Good morning, Nexlings! I won't be in here much today; got some family stuff going on. Wish the weather in Chicago would cooperate, but at least the cold has been kept at bay for the most part.

    Hope you all have a great day! Will check in from time to time in case anything amazing happens, which I highly doubt.

    That's kinda what my guess was; I called it a "reminder." I was thinking of calling the phone number on it, just to be sure... it's not very nice of them changing the "name" of the discount.

    What's creepier to me is the other little numbers, on the bottom left, they happen to be the first three of my social security number, on mine.

    What the fudge happened to my thanks? They almost tripled.

    :thinking:

    Did someone say I died or something?
