16gb is weak, with the iPhail having 32gb and 64gb we should at least get a device that can match that.

Have the nexus 4 and the galaxy nexus. The nexus 4 just doesn't wow me... I'm looking forward to the Motorola x phone. If they don't screw up the camera you can bet it will have more storage, great battery, great radios and great build quality.

My first smartphone was the Nexus S and I just bought a Galaxy Nexus a month ago. I've been interested in Motorola phones but I heard they are a nightmare for the root community, also the Nexus 4 doesn't seem like such an upgrade from the Galaxy Nexus. I really, REALLY, hope the Nexus 5 (?) is gonne be Motorola's baby, because I can't see myself with a non-Nexus device now, and it would be the best match possible in my opinion.

Oh man you said it. My other device has physical capacitive buttons and they are so hard getting used to again.

this is a interesting debate i've had with myself actually.
i too, skipped on the n4 because it didnt seem that much more enticing than my already owned gnex and the fact that LG was behind it didnt help the cause either.

-hmm, i havent had much experience with motorola phones but they have been pushing out solid devices for quite some time now..

-sony seems to be a popular option among members, i would entertain this thought as well.

-htc is a decent company, i did own the nexus1 for quite some time though it did have its flaws, (isnt htc in the middle of lawsuits and or declaring bankruptcy? i thought i read about that somewhere)

-or who knows, maybe i'll hold off the urges and stick with my gnex until google stops pushing updates to it. (though im pretty sure gnex is guaranteed key lime and maybe android "L".)

I'll likely be there. I also agree with you, the Galaxy Nexus is one of the best devices I've used, but I also love my Skyrocket on CM10.1.

AW: Who am I gonna be seeing in the fifth Nexus phones section come the end of this y
@jt.one
I have not heard anything about bankruptcy, but they are certainly heading down that path if they continue to treat the dev-community with neglect (kernel source anyone ?) and generally producing lower quality handsets.
Because lets be honest, quality has taken a bit of a dive.

Sony however has improved massively in the eyes of many due to its commitment to the dev-community and the fact that shortly after release they let you unlock the bootloaders of their devices.

I would prefer Sony over HTC & Moto (Samsung ranks before those two as well).

I would rather no phone at all than deal with LG or HTC crap.

Neph, I will be there!

Every time I think I want to upgrade to something new and wonderful, you guys, i.e. you, Anarkia, mmuzzy, dariosf et al come up with stuff that makes my Gnex new again!

Looking forward to the next Nexus handset. I, too, declined to go with the N4.

I'm one of those that skipped the N4 because of the lack of a clear advantage over my Gnex... and I'm pretty sure I'll be buying the next Nexus device, irrespective of the manufacturer.

Something I would love to see is a larger (5-ish) inch screen.. of course they would need to release a smaller version as well not to anger 50% of the XDA community.. hehe.

I think it's gonna be pretty interesting to see what Google will do with the naming once devices like the next N7 and next Nexus phone come out. Up to now they had it easy but I don't think they are willing to go the "Nexus 7 2" route like Samsung did, and don't think they will change the display size just because of that..
