Actually I don't have a custom ROM. That's why I bought a Nexus lol. And that doesn't mean I can't hate on Sense (had an Evo 4G, and I'm scarred for life). I'm glad they're making it lighter than previous versions, but its still there...

If you were given a phone with 512mb ram and 1gb of ram, I bet you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Thing is, its being released already behind on this spec. Phones already have 1gb RAM. It will be VERY tired with 512mb a year from now when I'm expected to still be using it. Not future proof at all with 512mb, that's my point.

An April release is considered good for Android. That's a little over a month away. Android manufacturers are notorious for launching a device well before the release date.

I'm not hating on the release date. I'm simply pointing out that its coming out in April and at that point the GSM GNex is coming up on 5months old and I still wouldn't consider it.

Generic "OMGZ! A NEW PHONE VS OUR Nexus" answer:

No, I'm not interested, otherwise I would take part in the discussion in the proper sub-forum.
Also I'm not interested if there is any extra UI on it that I cannot disable/uninstall.
The manufacturer doesn't release the original ROM for download so I can flash it back if necessary? Not interested.

Yes you will notice, same as dual core vs single core. With 1GB of data more resources can be loaded for the launcher. I like not having my launcher not have to be reloaded all the time.
