THANK YOU kennyglass123

I was tired of the crazy amount of non-nexus threads cluttering up the Galaxy Nexus forum

So any new "What about the SGS III?" or "Who's changing to the One X?" type threads that pop up outside of this one we should flag so you can lock that particular thread right?

This is how I personally decided to choose between the new S3 and Nexus, the S3 has;
-microSD
-better camera (8v5)
-bigger battery (2100 vs 1750, although latter has extended battery)
-slightly larger screen (4.8 v 4.65)
-faster cpu and gpu
-(eventually it will get CM9 and AOPK as well)

Nexus
-curved body, less ugly (opinion)
-better softwares (stock + updates)
-pentaband
-$340 cheaper (S3 16gb released price $739 VAT included vs Nexus $400, used low as $350)
-(USB OTG can alleviate the needs for microSD)

So choosing between the two weights on whether I want to pay the $340 difference for the hardware improvement, my decision is no. I can live with lower megapixels, 4.65" is fine, S3 hardware is faster but practically Nexus can do all the tasks. So I ended up ordering the Nexus. However, I'm waiting to see how much the S3 prices drop by Christmas. I predict since its a part of a popular flagship series and quadcore is still new, the price won't drop as fast as the Nexus did, which nearly half its price in 6 months. I will more likely wait for the next Nexus device if its announced by then.

I really appreciate you creating this thread. I felt like I was drowning in SGSIII threads.

Thank you VERY much. We need to keep all of these random threads in one place.

No thank you guys for helping out. This was the best compromise I could think of. If it works out and everyone wants it I can turn it into a full blown off-topic sticky.

That is what marketing would have you believe, yes.

Nah, some of us are special


IMO, at the moment, none of the competing handsets are that much better than the Nexus to warrant changing but if you were due an upgrade, the likes of the One X or the Galaxy S3 have got to be worthy of consideration.

And the idea that you choose your handset based on firmware strikes me as rather odd. That's pretty much the antithesis of the purpose of XDA, which is that your handset is never limited to the firmware it ships with.
You buy a handset based on the hardware then make the firmware fit your needs.
