What an ignorant response. It isn't worse, it is different. If you haven't figured that out by research, then you are uninformed and should move on.


Not everyone judges their life by a benchmark, but then some do. This phone is not for those people.

Did I ever say metal is superior? Better quality material, EXCEPT in a device filled with transmitters.

I'm not an asshole or something who's trying to troll. I've owned a SGS2 for almost an year, and i can read the specs.

Ok, you can say "Nexus has better community support, Google updates and co." and i'm ok with that, that's why i bought a Gnex. But you can't really tell its hardware it's not worse, even considering it came out 6 months later than SGS2.

Stop playing the benchmark and spec game. It is old, and only increases the e-member. What are you going to do to prove me wrong? Pull out some benchmarks?


Go ahead. Then go look on the net where our GPU beats the Mali in some tests. Like I said, not worse...different.

I can't understand how a phone released 6 months later can be worse than the SGS2, and that happened with SGS1 also.

I'm not saying i want a powerful hardware or something, but atleast the same as SGS2 (anybody said 8mpx camera vs 5mpx?)

I'm not sure if it's entirely Samsung's fault. GS2 has the Exynos SoC while the Galaxy Nexus is a TI OMAP4, I assume this is one of the points were you mean the GS2 is better.

But it seems Google wanted the TI OMAP4 to be the official processor for ICS, or at least first optimized for ICS. So the Galaxy Nexus had to use that processor. Maybe also because it's compatible with LTE and Exynos isn't.

Though have no idea why they gimped the camera (fortunately that wasn't important for me).

Seems like you can't get my point.

Peace bro

Better yet, to add to adrynalynes post, go look at the note forum where the Mali lags with HD resolution. Played with a note finally the other day and let's just say imagination ftw!

Good news man! GNex kept me happy for about 4 months (and still counts) which is unusual for me, so i'm really looking forward into next Nexus phone by Samsung.

What i think adrynalyne is trying to say is that pure hardware specs don't mean anything. You could have a hex-a-core-twin-turbo-intercooled-super-snapdragon-tegra-omap, but if there is no software optimized for it, there's no much point. Who cares if the benchmark is 3x the GNex if it loads a web page in the same amount of time? It's more of a "my junk is bigger/better/faster than your junk" thing, not much more.

Could have something to do with their desire for a super snappy camera. Fewer MP means less data to process. Doesn't explain why the sensor characteristics were so bad though.

I'm really surprised by the amount of build quality and camera posts. I think the build quality is great, phone feels and looks awesome and it can take some falls. Where do you guys live that you're talking about those things rather than the crap 4g radio? I'm 5 mins outside nyc, I never even saw 3g on my bolt because it held 4g like glue.. and my nexus has the opposite problem; can't get 4g in my house

And if I go into a building in nyc I can kiss 4g goodbye
