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

Also this one:

So what you wrote seems to be true, but with the caveat that it's only true because Samsung made a deliberate choice to leave out hardware to enable it. I.e. it's a feature not a bug :P
Unless I just read a lot of misinformation?

As someone who talks on my phone and isn't very inclined to record video often, this is a disappointing example of hardware design choice.

If you ask me the all plastic is good for build quality. It's light, durable and Samsung is doing a good job with it. My metal HTC phones all creak after a while and are too heavy.

I personally like the plastic build and light weight of Samsung phones. I carry my phone around in my pocket all day long so the lighter the better IMO.

And this material is much more expensive, as normal plastic.
Additional to this, this material will break faster because of his structure.

I figured Google might use Motorola this time around, but I'm perfectly ok with Samsung making another Nexus. They makes great phones, I don't care what anyone says. They're HORRIBLE with software support/updates/etc IMO, but that's almost a non-issue on the Nexus line so whatevs.

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

I don't think Samsung really has to much say about what goes in to the phone.. there just the manufacture. I'm sure Samsung would of at least made it equal to the GS2
