    Completely disagree... LG makes some really nice phones. Just few and far between.

    Oh no. I'm sorry. (really I am). I'll take the Nexus off your hands if you don't want it anymore. ;)

    If it's any consolation, the reviewers who mentioned it have said they think it's "pleasant," like a "paper texture." If that was not any consolation, feel free to PM abuse at me.

    Since I've already ruined your day, a question: does it appear even on the highest brightness setting? This is for science.

    So does the 1280x720 resolution include the on screen menu/home/back buttons? 1280x720 is nice, but I hope the buttons aren't always taking up some of that real-estate.

    ...and people still wonder on the value of the on-screen nav bar... GNex or not, my next phone will NOT have fixed buttons under the glass.

    I'd much rather have the bragging rights of Unlimited LTE for 2+ years than saying I had ICS first on AT&T.

    6 months down the road we won't care who had ICS first, but we will definitely care about our Unlimited LTE plan.

    Well, if my theory is correct, Satan himself is the Verizon president because only he could come up with such a torturous launch...then yes, they do have an office there.

    Is this a new policy? I'm pretty sure when I pre-ordered my Dinc I charged it to my account.

    It's barely noticeable, even if you know it's there... and no, it doesn't seem to appear on max brightness.

    Really. I said a couple hundred pages ago I could make most of you cry with the list of movies I haven't seen.

    This is actually an excellent point - if Verizon is really planning to do away with grandfathered unlimited plans as suggested by the Android Central source, getting a new LTE phone and locking into unlimited for 2 more years is crucial.

    EDIT: Why do all my posts seem to get stuck right at the ends of pages? Quite frustrating.. :/
