The Nexus 10 as well, 16 and 32 gig.

It's basically everything I want in a phone, at a really good price. The things that it's missing (mostly 4G) are not important to me.

And the vibrate motor on my phone died so I have an excuse to upgrade.

$300 is cheapskate? $600 to play iPhone? Farking people are gotdamm idiots. no wonder you morans are good with paying $125 for stupid bluejeans. pinheads.

I'm holding out for the Nexus 6. I hear it comes with a four year lifespan, *and* you can get it in a basic pleasure model.

Well at the risk of upsetting the hive mind, you get what you pay for. And for many people being limited to only 8GB or 16GB is a bit of a downer, as is the lack of LTE.

Android 4.2 is the shiatitest version of Android since Froyo.. It's half baked shiat.. The lockscreen is an asshole and whoever the bag of dicks was that decided to use bold face only on the hours portion of the digital clock should be sodomized with Capt'N Crunch.

I once worked with a guy who paid over $400 per pair of jeans. We worked at a non-profit. He was a receptionist.

I'm gonna pass on this overhyped/under produced phone until I actually have a real need to upgrade my handset. Maybe I'll catch the next one.

I put Cyanogenmod 9 (Ice Cream Sandwich? I don't know what that means, but I think it's what I have) on my Touchpad last night, and it's pretty fantastic. I think I believed that Apple products were the only option, but the 24 hours I've been using Android are starting to convince me otherwise.

They aren't the only option. It's just the most commercialized one so far.

Google really botched this launch. Selling out in 48 hours is acceptable. Selling out in 15 minutes with no preorders or official launch time? That is just stupid. Also Tmobile has plenty of stock but they're requiring a 2 year contract to buy one from them which ends up costing $650 more over 2 years.

Or it could be sold out because they only had a dozen of them in inventory and the "release" was just a way to gauge actual demand. Did anyone actually complete an order? I clicked "buy" the second I could and it timed out.

Stop being so damn stingy and dish out the $1.99 for Widget Locker.

OriginalGamer: Well at the risk of upsetting the hive mind, you get what you pay for. And for many people being limited to only 8GB or 16GB is a bit of a downer, as is the lack of LTE.


Agreed on the 16gb part. It's baloney. If the manufacturers aren't going to offer a 32gig version, they need to stay with SD card slots. I don't wanna go to the cloud for everything.
The lack of LTE doesn't really bother me though. The last time they put LTE on a Nexus phone, Verizon totally farked with it and people didn't get Jellybean until months after the release while the people that bought the GSM version got it the day it was released. I'm totally cool with it being just HSPA+.

Exactly. I already reverted back to 4.1.2.. 4.2 has all the unfinished and sent to market charm of Windows ME and all the incapability with software and "why the fark is it even doing that" of Vista at launch.

It's terribly buggy and the multiple user shiat with the stupid folder stack is stupid. All the custom recoveries are broken now too because of the strange folder structure Google is using..

I am really, really trying not to remember how everyone flipped a boatfull of dicks that the iPhone 4S, last year, didn't have LTE, but for some reason it's cool now with the Nexus 4.

Not knocking it, it's a neat little piece of hardware, and the Nexus line doesn't really disappoint overall, but the double standard is astounding.

I think it is aimed at different people. The iPhone is marketed as the best smartphone money can buy. Lacking 4G for a year while everyone else has it kind of defeats that. OTOH, this phone is meant to be inexpensive. Kind of like comparing a Raspberry Pi to a laptop. With a halved price tag, you expect it to be missing some things.

Touche

I'm still trying to figure out wtf Google is doing.. I have been saying from day one that "4.2" is NOT 4.2.. They added a shiat ton of features and framework changes for something that was an increment of 0.8 on the version scale. Instead of fixing bugs and tightening up the code Google disguised a buggy feature filled new version of Android as a point release.. 4.2 should have been at minimum labeled 4.5 and broadcast on the developer network all the framework changes taking place so all the developers weren't caught with their pants down when their shiat was broken.

At most this should have been 5.0.. Either way it's laughable this is what Google considers a point release.

Besides the lack of LTE and limited storage, this phone is significantly more powerful than the GS3. The screen is nicer and the CPU is much faster.
I don't excuse the limited storage (16gigs, and we all know storage is cheap), but this phone is meant to be a world phone, plain and simple. The United States is one of the only countries in the world with an extensive LTE network, so it didn't make sense to have it. The previous iteration of the Nexus phone didn't have LTE until it was sold on Verizon and Sprint. When you put LTE on a phone, you're giving the carrier some control over when the updates occur, and last time Google did that with the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, Verizon completely shiat the bed. The Verizon CDMA Nexuseswere getting Jellybean months after their GSM counterparts that were bought directly from Google.

I have no interest in jumping through arbitrary marketing hoops. If I have to check Wikipedia to figure out what a device is -- let alone which of two is newer -- then the marketing department has failed.

Even Microsoft gave up on this sort of nonsense and went back to contiguous numbering. It's almost like people want to know what they're buying.

If google sold more than one phone you might actually have to do that. Since they only sell one Nexus phone at a time then you'd have to be pretty dumb to not know what one is the newest. Same with 7 inch and 10 inch tablets. You want the newest one? it is the one for sale.

Not all products are new. Not everyone buys new products. And sometimes you actually have to get tech support, and in that case -- believe it or not -- you actually need to know what device you own.

I have no interest in jumping through arbitrary marketing hoops. If I have to check Wikipedia to figure out what a device is -- let alone which of two is newer -- then the marketing department has failed.

Even Microsoft gave up on this sort of nonsense and went back to contiguous numbering. It's almost like people want to know what they're buying.


It is contiguous numbering, it's the 4th Nexus phone. There were three Nexus phones before, this is number four in the row, it's called the Nexus 4.

Now, to make it really really simple, for people like you, on the tablet side, Google includes the specifications in the name. So the Nexus 7 comes with a 7" screen, the Nexus 10 comes with a 10" screen.

Now, tablets and phones are two different product lines, that's why the number has different meanings.

But hang on fella, why do are they both called Nexus then. That's again to make it simple for, well not you, because you haven't got a clue, but for other people, to let them know that the device comes with an unmodified version of the Android OS, and will be kept up to date to the newest version by Google.

Your numbering scheme falls apart at that exact point. You can't have two different devices with the same model number as it'd be a support nightmare. And "Nexus 7.1" neither trips off the tongue nor seems all that appealing.

I think that one reason why this phone is attractive is that the carriers are trying to kill off unlimited data.

Right now, I have unlimited data. It's been grandfathered for years. But if I upgrade via a subsidized phone, T-Mobile will now INSIST on changing my plan to something that's throttled after a few gigs.

However, if I buy an unlocked phone, they don't fark with me. Good enough. Hope other phone makers do the same thing.

The iPad 2 is the odd man out of the usual Apple naming scheme of I agree however beyond that single item in their current line-up none of the iPod's or iPad's actually have a number anywhere in their name actual product name.

And they lack that for the exact reason I said the Nexus 7 is a poor way to name something, especially when you consider what the media will call the 7th generation of Google's phone line if the current convention continues... the Nexus 7.

plenty of reviews out there. I would like a new 7" tablet, and theoretically the nexus 7 is good. no sd slot, no hdmi out are still very bad things for what i want though.

the big plus is Google keeping the OS updated for you, but if 4.2 is a POS, then what is the advantage of that?

so that puts the Acer iconia a110 back into the mix for me because of micro sd & hdmi out, even if the nexus has a better screen.

I may just wait until Asus/ Google makes a nexus with hdmi out.

This is the second Nexus phone to have a number in it's name. They are, in order:

Nexus One
Nexus S
Galaxy Nexus
Nexus 4

Other Nexus devices:

Tablets:

Nexus 7
Nexus 10

Media Hub:

Nexus Q

So, it's not really a numbering scheme. The manufacturer and Google work out a name for the device. If, for example, Motorola made the Nexus, it would have likely been called the Nexus RAZR.

So I picked up a Nexus 7, and while I like it, I'm not convinced Android outdoes iOS. It seems like all the openness and flexibility are spent on allowing you to attempt to fix an inconsistent, subpar UX. And while I'm fine with the idea of tinkering, I'm more concerned with just getting things done.

So, what's the killer app here? Sell me on it. Are there competent Android alternatives to things like iWork, Priorities, TouchDraw, etc? Anything that will sync directly with a desktop version of OneNote (with no "cloud" insecurity)? That is, heavy-hitting productivity software that lets you leave the laptop at home, rather than just widgets, hacks, and social networking apps.

On a related note, can't wait to check out the Windows 8 convertibles. The Iconia W510 looks promising.

All Google Docs are available on andriod of course and Quickoffice Pro is a good enough office app that I think MS official version of Office in 2013 is going to have to be really good to get me to consider it.. There is a mobile version of OneNote for android made by MS i'd assume it syncs with the desktop version but I've never used it.

Swiftkey is amazing and there is nothing like it on iphone (i'm using an iphone 4S but will be getting a Nexus 4 as soon as it is available) but what convinced me to switch was the voice recognition software on android. It is finally good enough where I can just talk and it will compose an email, to do list, accurately enough that I'm not worried about stupid spelling errors.

Also the ability to encrypt your phone is a nice touch considering the rise in NFC and sensitive data on it.

I've had my eye on Quickoffice. I wonder how it stacks up against Documents To Go on iOS (which isn't exactly the cream of the crop, but gets the job done).

I think the official OneNote only syncs via SkyDrive or some nonsense. I occasionally put mildly sensitive client info in my notes, and don't want to put them at risk with some 3rd party storage service. If I have to do that, I use something like mSecure which encrypts everything before syncing it with Dropbox.

A 14 inch tablet is getting ridiculous. Why not just use a laptop if you are going to carry around something that big anyway?

You are probably right though. Apple's way of doing things makes much more sense. What else are you going to name the 6th generation of your smartphone with a 4 inch screen? Calling it the iPhone 5 is the only thing that makes any sense.

I'm not saying Apple's numbering system is perfect, but at least there was a total ordering. Google's system involves taking imperial measurements and applying an unusual rounding function. There's no way to deduce the lineage from the number scheme.

Unless you're just a troll. (And a pathetic one at that) You should study farker letrole's comments before you embarrass yourself again with such a weak-premised trolling attempt.

Ah yes, the "I don't agree with you, therefore you're a troll" strategy. Spoken like a truly brain-dead fanboy.


Your claim that technical people lack the understanding needed to perform the complex mathematical operation of rounding down wasn't a troll???

I hope you realize that means you're back to "idiot" status.

Poor marketing means I'm a troll/idiot. Yes, you've already expressed your absurd opinion repeatedly, but continue blaming me for Google's failings. Go right ahead, I'm putting you on my "special needs" list.

MrEricSir: So what phone do you own then?

Sorry, product ownership and fanboyism are two unrelated concepts.


I know that. Fanboyism is when you make nonsensical arguments to explain why one product is better than another like you have been doing throughout the entire thread. Why are you so scared to answer the question? Here, I'll even go first. I have a Samsung Infuse and an Alienware mx11 instead of a tablet. Your turn.

I haven't said a single thing about product quality.

Seriously, if you have to lie to make your point, you don't have one.

Fine. Fixed. Now answer the damn question.

Because when you're making a tech product and there's a number in the name, there's a convention as to what that means. Violating this convention offers serves only to confuse your customers.

Since Google's not stupid, the only possible reason for the Nexus naming scheme is that they want to confuse their customers because they find this beneficial. In other words, they've taken Microsoft's naming strategy from the 1999-2007 era.

Citation needed. Go look at the model numbers for some tvs, receivers, routers etc. and come back to us. Now answer the farking question. The effort you are putting into avoiding it is hilarious.

And again, Google's customers are smart enough to know what it means. It is just a certain other company's customers who are confused by such simple things.

Arguing with someone as stupid as this troll is always taxing. Are you as tired of that idiot as I am? He doesn't understand the concept of numbers and when offered an out (that he's just trolling) he doubles down saying that, no, he really is confused by "decimal points" and numbers that follow them.

One wonders how he feeds himself if he does try to earn a living in "tech" as he claims.

I don't often put farkers on ignore, but when they have an IQ below 50 it's almist the only thing you can do.

Cheers. :)

Normally I would agree. I am actually really enjoying watching him squirm out of admitting that he has an iPhone and iPad. I bet his computers are Macs too. But don't you dare call him an "Apple fanboy".
