Hello All

Right now I am disappointed at Google. I have been wanting a pure Nexus device with 32gb.

Third year in a row we do not get a 32gb Nexus phone.

Why did Google release 32gb in the Nexus 7 and 10 devices and not the Nexus 4?

I understand what they are doing with price points and 8gb/16gb, No LTE etc but there still should be a 32gb option. Not everyone wants the cloud or to stream. I want my phone to replace my MP3 player.

There are no options if you want SPACE and PURE Google.

Will we get one in the very near future? Do other users want 32gb?

Cheers

I suspect an announcement in February or March about a 32GB version.

At $299 / 349 contract free you'd have to be insane to be dissapointed with Google

If the last two years they didn't come out with an unlocked 32gb version they you shouldn't be surprised they didn't this year either

They came out with a 32GB one for Nexus 7.
GSM Galaxy Nexus 32GB was in the works then canceled.

Two years is a long time in technology. Space requirements are increasing. I have two games on my GNex that are 1gb each. You cannot store music, movies/video and games on your phone with only 16gb of space.

Such a high specced phone crippled by lack of space.

Apple released 32gb and 64gb even.

Give me $399 with 32gb then. I am disappointed because I cannot see the value in a higher specced phone without the space needed to take advantage of it over my Galaxy Nexus.

Thank you, I also agree. 16GB (more like 11GB or so formatted) is nowhere near enough space for my needs. I understand that not everybody needs 32GB, but couldn't they have at least installed a MicroSD card slot? I mean jeez, memory is the only constraint on this phone.

The only solution is either a SD Slot or 32gb of Internal Memory. There is NO REASONABLE alternative.
