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..

After my volume rocker died on my this past weekend I thought about getting the N4. So far I've abstained. I'm looking forward to more concrete details on the Moto X phone. I may be able to hold out for the next Nexus, but my track record of hanging on to a phone for over a year isn't very good.

I broke my screen and digitizer on my GNEX and instead of fixing it I decided to get a nexus 4. The nexus 4 is a great phone but if there is nothing wrong with your GNEX then stay with it. It's not that big of an upgrade. The display is weird because colors look washed out like the nexus 7 until you look at a picture or a video then it's awesome and it looks better outside than the GNEX. Wireless charger is awesome though. GNEX to a nexus 4 is a sideways upgrade to me. I'm still gonna fix my GNEX but waiting on digitizers to come down in price.

Edit: screen does look bigger on nexus 4.

I'll probably dive in with the next Nexus, or the GSIV.

I've been bouncing around phones. I had the GNex then had the evo lte, s3, optimus g.

But I still found myself drawn to this phone so I decided to get it again.

I'll probably get the new nexus device. As long as Sprint carries it.

I looked at the Nexus 4, it is a very nice phone. But I was put off by the glass backside, too much potential for breakage. I think the advantages over the Gnex are clear but not enough to warrant a new phone purchase so soon. I knew before I even saw it, that there would only be a tiny chance I would buy one of those.

When the Nexus 5 comes out I will be checking it out with great interest. As of right now, I'd say it's 50/50 if I will get one. I also want to start developing for multiple platforms, so I may put my money into a BB10, or a WP8. Especially since the Gnex is supposed to get Key Lime Pie, I'll still have access to the latest Android without needing to upgrade hardware. It's really big a wait and see game for me right now.

If Google wanted to do something that's good for us and them, they'd strike a deal with Canonical to produce a Nexus that dual boots Ubuntu and Android out of the box.
