So what's everyone's thoughts on the One x and subsequent variants in comparison to the GN? Specifically Evo lte vs sprint GN.

Of course software and development will kill compared to the evo, but is the hardware improvements enough to overcome that?
Sure want to stay in the nexus family from my crespo4g, but that S4 chip is looking mighty fine.

I can not see my self ever getting anything other than the a Nexus ... I'll likely buy a new one every year. Right now I don't see any other phone that makes me want to stray from my decision.

I'm with the Nexus from now on...
I'm with the Nexus from now on. I came from a long list of carrier branded phones and the lack of bloatware and other junk the carriers heap on you was refreshing on the Nexus. Updates direct from Google as soon as available, not after the carrier spends 6 months adding junk. Also, since this is a "developers" phone, the Nexus community is very active and brings more flexibility.

GN all the way if your a flashing zombie no phone will get the dev that a nexus will. Unlocked boot loaders -huge plus-, look at the evo 3d old phone same specs as our new GN. We've almost caught Dev.

+1 for Nexus phones! Couldn't go back to a non-Nexus even though the specs may be better. Firmware > hardware, imo.

Personal opinion

I got my nexus 2 months ago. I can tell that I am happy with it specwise, but I am not happy with the updates (yakjuxw, no 4.0.4 yet). From the performance point of view, HTC One X and S beat the SGS3, but all the custom skins make me not want to buy one and for the moment there are no applications that require 4 cores. I acquired the nexus just for vanilla and for not rooting it (my old htc hero was rooted and I tried all the available custom roms on it). So, as a conclusion, I am 90% happy with the Gnex as long as I can play Fifa 2012 and watch sopcast streams on it.

I went for the Gnex over the evo... I don't see any benefit other than the faster processor but much more limited development, a non-removeable battery, and its not a nexus . I get my gnex tomorrow I ordered it today =]
